Ron is retired and enjoys doing his family's genealogy in the U.S. and Sweden and that of his wife's family from Australia and Ireland.
I'd be happy to transfer the memorial of anyone to whom I'm not more closely related. I find it rather selfish of those folks who require Mayflower Society standards before a transfer can be requested. This is not a competition to see who can "acquire" the most memorials - and what happens to them if you get hit by a truck.
RE: Jean Marie Miller Colonius Jean/Harold were actually my neighbors when they gave up farming and moved into Taylorville. I walked the cemetery three times and I don't think Gail has a headstone...which, of course, made me sad. But, I wondered, too, if she had gotten married and perhaps was under another name.
RE: Jean Marie Miller Colonius When they gave up farming and moved into Taylorville, IL, THEY WERE MY NEIGHBORS!! Could not find Gail anywhere in the cemetery so not sure about her having a headstone but she wasn't anywhere near Harold/Jean....I've walked the cemetery THREE times and couldn't find her.
The Social Security Application and Claims Index on Ancestry.com has the birth place as Taylorville. I did see that several family trees on Ancestry had the birth place listed as Tovey. I believe the Social Security Application would be a more reliable source. The Social Security Application also has the birth date as 28 Aug 1902, which is the same as what is on the gravestone.
