Bio and Links
Bio Photo .I use Familysearch all of the time. Not every detail is accurate but it gives you a jumping off point. I have just been playing around in the Familysearch Family Tree and I have notice that "Stories and Documents" section have familysearch members "Copy/Pasting" from Find A Grave Memorials. A few of them MINE. I like to think I am a story teller though my guys think I am just long winded.
. A LOT of time and energy goes into research and writing the stories on My Memorials. My Family and people who have gotten a hold of me and led me on the trail of their lives so I could tell their story, but they are no relation to me or mine or indirect connection. IF YOU are going to "Copy/Paste" these stories, NOT just mine but Every contributor on this SITE, who puts in the energy and sometimes expense of creating these Memorial pages PLEASE give the Find A Grave MEMORIAL #'s at the very least:::OR SOURCE IT in the Source section.
Please Use the information, that is why I put it out there on Find A Grave, most of it is fully verified, but use at your risk. IF you "Copy/Paste" please give my Memorial # credit so I can smile to my guys, 'some people appreciate my long winded." It is not like we get paid for this research. Please Do not steal our efforts and have it look like yours on Familysearch or Ancestry.

. If you serve your country, in the Military, Police Force, Fire Departments or in the Schools. For what it is worth, you have my gratitude.
. When I fulfill a request, I will get every family member, surounding my original request. If I can catch connecting names, either in the field or in the records, I get those as well. IN family plots I always try to find those within the plot that do not have stones{maybe there was a stone but the GOPHERS got there before me} and forward that info.
THe pic on my bio was a great man who believed in being kind. If someone does something for you you repay them. I have spent my life trying to honor him.
This site those people who have helped me the most: Nancy K, Chantell, Shirleen, Kara and others there is nothing I CAN Do to help them in the way they have helped me. So I try to pay it forward. By finding these burials and everyone in them and trying to track down and link the entire family.
I cannot THANK YOU people enough. So I hope doing for someone I can help, shows how grateful I AM TO YOUR HELP.

As a child, I wanted to time travel backward. Now there are people I want to meet.
History is my Passion. Knowing how my Family Connects is the Cream on top.

Kendra Monette Tippets Hessheimer
I got interested in finding where Kendra Hessheimer was buried so I went to the library to see if I could find her obituary (Ogden obituaries are not on line between 1978 and 2005). While there I looked up Reed and Ruby Tippets as well. I sent them to myself and have forwarded them to you on your email. Hope this helps. From what I can find, Kendra was cremated. Her obituary does not note a burial. As I told you before there is a memorial stone on Reed and Ruby's grave site. I have talked to both the Ogden and Lindquist cemetery office and she is not buried at either cemetery.

Hi, I am on my way over to Holy Sepulcher Cemetery. I can take a photo of Frank Santell's headstone as he should be next to Helen. If you could enter a photo request that will be great and I will post the photo when I get back home.

Cheers, Laura

I was CREEPING on your site yesterday - (boy are you "tuned in" psychic!) I was going to leave a message, but got a phone call & then remembered a meeting I had to go didn't get to message you, as I had intended. Funny, huh?

We had a bunch of repairs to do & family to help, but I keep praying for the moisture we need to stay in the mountains, so I can keep warm....waiting for spring!

We have got to get to SL (when it's warm) & meet you somewhere just to say, "Hi". Can't believe how much work there is to do! Hope all is well with you & yours....Talk later - me.

Thanks for the fix (: I'm glad it hasn't been too cold to take headstone photos!

Hope you're doing well.

Take care!

Kendra Monette Tippets Hessheimer
There is a smaller headstone on the same site as Reed and Ruby Tippets. I wonder if this is possibly a daughter of Reed and Ruby. Would you like this photo on a memorial also. Let me know and I will be glad to post it.

Ruby Noyes Tippets
There is no memorial on Find A Grave for Ruby Tippets. If you would like to create a memorial for her, I will post a picture of her headstone and the meme portion with birth and death dates. Or if you want, I can create the memorial and post the pictures.

RE: Help Maybe
More than happy to add information. Glad I could find it. It is important to mark these lives and I appreciate all your work, which is more extensive than mine. Take care.

RE: Help Maybe
No problem. Here is what I've found out. Glen was in the 142nd Infantry 36th Division. He was awarded purple heart and silver star medal. The record shows his last known status is buried and a monument in Lorraine, France.

Source: National Archives and Records Administration. World War II and Korean Conflict Veterans Interred Overseas [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations Inc, 2000.

Also, the U.S. Rosters of World War II Dead, 1939-1945 list his permanent burial in Saint Avold (Permanent Cemetery), Saint Avold, France.

This cemetery is listed in findagrave

Hope that helps some.

RE: ohhhh sorry
No problem. I just got the message and took a minute to remember where I took it. Is the Behunin cabin in Capital Reef part of your family? I love that area. I have many relatives still there. I wish I was still there.
By the way the cemetery is listed as Etna Alpine Cemetery on Find A Grave.

In a hurry
Still having to let this machine's fan cool down - my "tecs" are so busy with holidays and me with other people's problems - ha!

Anyway, Happiest of New Years to you & yours...this coming year will be better because we can't stand it to be worse - politics to high prices, stick a fork in us....we are done!

Hope you are having joy & that things are settling down - like my hubby says, let your mind go into "test pattern"...(like when the TV goes bzzzzzzzz) - makes it easier to cope - Ha! Happiness....Cheers, me
