Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in Find A Grave began while researching my family history. After creating memorials for my ancestors and extended family, I added information from obituaries in old extant newspapers.

For the past few years my focus has been on taking headstone photos. I am currently playing catch-up, editing and adding pictures I took in 2015 and 2016.

Like you, I am a volunteer. I participate in this labor of love because I believe it's an important part of our history.

I will gladly update any memorial in my care with a sourced request. Simply share a few details about how you know something to be true when you submit an edit (using the edit tabs please).

Inside voices and good manners are very much appreciated.

RE: John and Melissa Bean
Hello Laura,

Melissa Missouri (Walker) Bean is my 3rd Great Aunt. Much of the information I have about her is from her mother's, Ann Miller, Civil War Widows Pension Claim. The other information about her and John Bean comes from a collection of family stories written in the early 1930's by a Grandson of Union Hayes Walker, my 2nd Great Grandfather and Melissa's brother. I would love to have these memorial transferred to me, but I understand if you prefer to just make the corrections. Thank you for all you do on Find-A-Grave.

RE: Sophie Bode
Hi Laura, I am documenting Saint Johns Cemetery in Muscoda, Wisconsin and had added her parents. I recently transferred management to a great grand daughter of her father Anton Shereda. She mentioned Sophie as not being linked. I searched for her and found her in the 1900 federal census living with her parents in Muscoda, and in the 1910 census living in Chicago with her husband August Bode and her sister Amelia Shereda.
Here is the link to that info on ancestry:

The gg daughter of Anton is Ronna Abbott (#48728121) I'm sure she would love it if you transferred these memorials to her.

Hope this helps,
Regards, Bruce

RE: Edna A Seaberg
Edna is a cousin and the dates are from family information. A transfer would be great, thanks.

RE: Mathew Herman Humiston
Hi Laura -- Matt was my brother-in-law, so the information is from family records. It is confirmed by the Social Security Death Index, the Social Security Applications and Claims Index, and the Minnesota Death Index.

I'm not sure I know how to manage a memorial, but if it's not too complicated, I would be happy to take over Matt's memorial.
