Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history has long tugged at my heartstrings. It has also been a vehicle for meeting "cousins" and new friends as we assist and exchange data. Inevitably, errors occur so, please inform me of any you may discover on the info I have added (and I'm happy to place additional facts...THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! If I have inadvertently overlooked anyone, please know that I am sincerely appreciative of your input.) to this fantastic site directly from that memorial.

Will consider transfer of family members to "per Find A Grave guidelines "(Please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial transferred to you. Please, DO NOT post requests on my Bio page as it is very time consuming to search for those memorials and less accurate. Also include in your request your unique Contributor ID # which is displayed to the right of your member name on your profile page. Transfers: Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree."Transfer requests should be for direct relatives WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS, this would be your Siblings, Parents, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. EXPLAIN your Relationship in the request. Any non-direct relatives (Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, etc.) are Not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. BULK surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.). I will ONLY TRANSFER management of memorials to immediate relatives as defined in the Find A Grave rules...this is their policy. Other requests WILL be ignored. AGAIN, PLEASE USE the "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION". Additional data should not be placed in the flower/token area of the memorial page. I also need an email address, or way to contact you when you send me requests and questions. Many Newbies are not making themselves familiar with site guidelines and sadly, some simply do not care. I'm also very capable of adding data so, please do not ask me to transfer and you'll transfer the memorial pg back to me after you've added more data. The guidelines also state to allow 30 days for updates. Patience is necessary as I have a life beyond this site. In the event of the same memorial listed twice on the same day, please refer to the MEMORIAL number. The lowest MEMORIAL # was the one added first, with the highest MEMORIAL # being the duplicate.

Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together. I respect all contributors of FAG and do expect the same from them. Also, please keep in mind we are contributing this very important data for future generations so they might continue the wonderful work that we are currently peforming. The focus is assisting others and remembering those who passed before us.

I'm honored to add those who have passed into their eternal life as they should never be forgotten. ALL of these wonderful memorials are NOT related to me as I have added others I "met" while doing research at cemeteries, libraries, or seeking data on the Internet. Feel free to visit and leave floral/tokens/messages. Heartfelt thanks also to my fab ancestors!

Here is a list of our (deceased) Fallen Gravers @ Memorial #33083506
you may wish to visit and leave a token for.

Just want to let you know....

Rolland George Carpentier, 1928 - 2012

I visited Fort Custer National Cemetery, Michigan, summer of 2014. No George.

About one week after the visit, did call the administration, can't find George. Not at Fort Custer National Cemetery.

Double checked today, April 14 2015, still no George. Have no idea where George is buried.

Thought you would want to know. Thanks for all of time & effort you put into Find A Grave.

Regarding LaGreta Ann (Lease) Steinmann's mother (Lenora):
Pertaining to the Memorial for Lenora Catherine BOONE Lease:

Hello, there. I'm not sure if I've found the right Lenora Boone, of Plainville, Adams County, Illinois, or not. But, she seems to fit my cousin, the eldest daughter of my Great-Great-Uncle (James Robert Boone - # 98777019) and his first wife (Mary Elizabeth "Mollie" Baker - 99122751); who were married on April 27th, 1904, in Romney, Hampshire Co, W.Va. And their first two children, Lenora (1906-07), and Leo (abt. 1908), were both born in Rock Oak, Hardy Co, West Virginia. Then, Great-Great-Uncle James Robert and his wife, Mary Elizabeth "Mollie," move to Plainville, Adams Co., Illinois, because they later had a set of "Twins," Robert and Elizabeth "Betty," I believe (b) September 13th, 1903. Sadly, their mother Mary Elizabeth "Mollie" (Baker) Boon/Boone, must have had complications from their births, because she later died on September 13th, 1913. So their widowed father, James Robert Boon(e) later gets remarried to a Pearl M. (Jackson), from Texas, on October 26th, 1917, in either Illinois, or in Texas. I can't seem to find James and his children after the 1910 or 1920 U.S. Census Records.

(The Children of James Robert and Mary Elizabeth "Mollie" BAKER Boon/Boone):

(1) Lenora C. Boone (b)Nov 3rd, 1907,
Rock Oak, Hardy County, West Virginia.
(2) Leo B. Boone (b) Sept 28th, 1908,
Rock Oak, Hardy County, West Virginia.
(3) "Twin" Robert Boone (b) 1913,
in Illinois.
(4) "Twin" Elizabeth Boone (b) 1913,
in Illinois.

(Noted): Since James' first wife, Mary Elizabeth "Mollie" (Baker) Boone, died on September 13th, 1913, in Illinois, he
later remarried by (1917).

(James Robert Boone's 2nd Wife): Pearl M.
Jackson, whom he married on October 26th,
1917, in either Illinois "or" Texas.

(James and Pearl's Child):

~ Anelia/Amelia Boone (b) 1917-1918

If you are directly linked to Lenora Catherine (Boone) Lease. Could you please get back with me on this, please. James' mother's name was (Sarah Catherine Dean), so I'm almost certain she got her grandmother's middle name. As you will see, my Great-Great-Uncle James Robert Boone, also died there in Plainville, Adams Co, Illinois. But I cannot locate his or his two wives graves, or his children's graves, either.

PS: I saw where Lenora Catherine (Boone) Lease's one daughter, LaGreta Ann (Lease) Steinmann, said she went to live with her Aunt Betty (which is probably short for "Elizabeth"); which Lenora had a younger sister (Elizabeth) who had a twin brother, Robert.

Thank you for your time, and have a blessed day.

I sincerely thank you for the tremendous amount time, energy, and 'genealogy research' that you have so generously contributed -- to assist 'strangers' (like myself), that you have never even met. And, I am 100% certain that there are countless others, who also share my deep appreciation. We thank-you.

Richard Newton
Thank you so very much for the SACs you sent to me for Richard Newton's memorial, you could have done like many other members and just created another memorial.

I am a firm believer in team work [Together Everyone Achieves More]; working together we can accomplish a common goal and that is to make Find A Grave the best site it can be! Having the memorials as accurate and complete as possible, having photos, bios, merging duplicates and sending the original creators burial information. I called several funeral homes on Monday and obtained the burial information for 10 memorials and only 2 were ones I created. I forwarded the information I obtained to the individuals that created the memorials so that would fill in the burial information for a few more. It might not put much of a dent in how many BU's there are but in my opinion every bit helps.

You and your loved ones have a wonderful holiday weekend! I hope you find the GOLDEN EGG.

Hi. Are you related to Agatha Jackson or did you know her? Memorial # 130132812. I ask because you were kind to add flowers to her memorial and you did that the day before her funeral.
