Bio Photo 22 Aug 2016
Most of the memorials I manage are in Rest-Haven Memorial Park. The cemetery has about 17,000 graves with just over 15,400 of them on Find-A-Grave. Rest-Haven has a mausoleum in addition to the cemetery. This cemetery has no upright gravestones, only flat ground level grave marker. The cemetery does not require that a grave be marked, so many graves have no markers.

I enjoy genealogical research and like to enhance the memorials I manage. It will take several years for me to research all 4,000 plus memorials. I give top research priority to the memorials that people show an interest in. So when edits are sent to me I research that memorial. If you have information for a memorial please send it. If you have a special interest in a memorial let me know and I will see what I can find.

If you have a damaged or faded photo to post on a memorial please email it to me instead of posting it. I would like to repair it prior to posting. If you would like the photo credit let me know and I will send you the repaired copy, so you can post it.

FAG members:


If you have a correction, extra information or want a transfer please use the EDIT TAB on that individual's memorial. Then use the suggestion option to add information or ask for a transfer. If asking for a transfer please state how you are related.

Non members:

If you are not a Findagrave member/contributor please send me an email with your information. On the email's subject line put "Findagrave- (the memorial number and/or name)". Be sure to also include the person's name and memorial number in your email. A correct memorial number is extremely important. Please double check the memorial number you send.

Re: Elizabeth Powell
Rebecca, I may have found something, daughter Harriet (Powell) Sexton was living with an aunt Eleanor (Baker) Horrom in Marshall County,Illinois in the 1900 census. This Eleanor was a daughter of Daniel W. & Margaret (Bradford) Baker, marriage license was issued to Daniel W. Baker and Margaret Bradford on 25 Feb 1811 in Lebanon, Warren County, Ohio.

Re: Elizabeth Powell
Are you sure about this marriage date? According to the 1850 Richland Co. WI census, William would be age 15.Dave Thompson Richland Co. Cemeteries website which he took the photo states she was 32 yrs old when she died which means she was born in 1817. I did find that William with daughter Margaret & son John W. were living back in Tipton Co. IN in 1860, his age is stated as 58 making him born 1802 instead of 1815, it is hard to believe that a 13 year old girl would be married, something isn't right.

RE: Sarah Jane Chaney Thorp
In response to both of your messages ... 1) I did not originally create this memorial. It was created by "J" (Jeanie Sawyer), who has since left all Find A Grave work, her memorials transferred to Find A Grave Admin, except for a number which she referred to me, as she knew I was actively working Chico Cemetery.

2) I do not know where the surname/maiden name Chaney came from, sorry to say. I have not "worked" (sought additional/corroborating information) this memorial, so can shed little light on the topic, sorry to say.

Thanks for the edits. Are you related in some way? I'm not, so if you'd like to manage it, be my guest. Happy digging!

memorial # 119391171 obituary please
Good Day Rebecca!
Thank You for all of your volunteer hours dedicated to, you are in inspiration! I have a niece that just married into the Aydelott family on July 9th, so I am adding branches of the Aydelotts to my family tree. I came across memorial # 119391171 that you very kindly created, and your comment says: "contact me for obituary".
I send my appreciation in advance for sending me the said obit, AND send you best wishes with your genealogy research & venues.
Thank You,
