Bio and Links
Bio Photo Director of Historical Interpretation at Stuhr Museum LOVES to work on genealogy in "spare" time.Family connections include: Wilderman, O'Dell, Craft, Anderson, Aymond, Couvillion and on my husband's side: Cynova, Rohatsch, Duraczynski, Greenwalt, and more! If I have made mistakes in any of the memorials please let me know and I am more than happy to correct them.If there is a memorial you want transferred to your care, just let me know - I am happy to transfer, as per Findagrave guidelines. PLEASE use the "Edit" tab in the upper right hand corner area of the memorial to make your request as this includes all the information I need to make this happen. Working to enter all of the recorded Hall County burials. Most of the small non Grand Island graves have been entered, and as time allows, will work on photo verification. Working on the GI cemeteries as time allows. If the names and locations are posted, it will be easier for everyone to take pictures!

RE: Sylvia Manrose
I have just sent you a email (to address listed above). In it I included a couple of PDF files that show an advertisement for DH Manrose carving tombstones. Also a legal notice for his will. Hope you enjoy.

RE: Sylvia Manrose
Are you related to the Manrose family?

My Aunt, Mary Dexter, has done a lot of local research on early gravestone carvers. She believes that the father of Sylvia, David Manrose, also buried in Freetown, is The David Manrose who carved many sandstone markers in the area.

Do you have any information on this?

I put in a request for a photo & then came upon another Find a Grave entry for her under Annette Marie Bissell with a pic of the grave. Can you remove yours as there is no photo & would eliminate the duplicate?

Duplicate Memorials
When I find a duplicate memorial I take the time to send a message to both parties as a courtesy.

If Find A Grave finds duplicate memorials they can be deleted. Hours of hard work can be lost.

But I have bookmarked you, so I will no longer leave you any more messages for any duplicate memorials I may find in the future.

To report chalked cemetery stones report them to

Thank you.

Thank you, and all of the others that do all of these posting on "Find a Grave", but it is a shame to find some graves unmarked. So posted a couple of pictures for old time sake. Thanks again Rod H

Thanks Again,for posting these memorials. I love that you include the obituaries.
It is so helpful to have Find A Grave, especially in the States that do not have Death records posted on
Best Wishes
