Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am always happy to transfer a memorial to a family member closer in relationship than I am. Just let me know which ones, using the edit tab in the upper right and then under "suggest a correction" ask for the transfer of the memorial and include how you are related.

I have been doing genealogy for 45 years and have published family history books for my parents, my husband's parents, my daughter-in-law's family and my son-in-law's family. I am a retired librarian and have traveled with my husband as we volunteered to help build Habitat for Humanity homes all over the country. We have visited all of the cemeteries of known direct ancestors for all our families; I have loved adding them all to this wonderful website.

My genealogy is downloaded to the World Connect Projects link at Rootsweb.com. I have 7 gedcom databases, accessed by typing in the database name in the "jump to specific database" box or by searching by name and looking for my entry with one of the database names below:
gravleesellers, druinlewis, macyblair, barchliger, lewisadams, rudisilltrigg or fieldmasser.

RE: Caleb Fowler
Hi, Diane. I was glad to help! No, I'm not looking to photograph the graves at West Side. I happened to be there looking for *my* ancestor (couldn't find him), and decided to see if I could fulfill anyone else's requests!
The grave is located in the bounds of what looks to be a Fowler family plot. There were a bunch of really old (pre-dating the cemetery itself) gravestones that were lined up at the back of the plot. I suspect that they were among other graves that were relocated from the graveyard that used to be in the town green (I think the re-interrment was about 1824).
Fortunately the name and death date were legible to me, so I was able to shoot it.

RE: Boot Hill Cemetery in Ogallala, NE.
I'd be happy to add the bios to the memorials that I control, but honestly, if I have to transcribe each one from a brochure, it might take me a very long time to get to it. If you wanted to type it out and email the bios to me at chersfmly@gmail.com or chersfmly@aol.com I could get it done much faster. Thanks for telling me about the brochure!

RE: Emmett Y. Dishman Headstone Photo
Diane, I really appreciate all you have done to support Find A Grave and all the researchers that count on you and others like you to provide information that supports their research. While I have genealogical interest in the Dishman family and have many as aunts, uncles, and cousins, I really don't want to take over the memorials. If it is important to you to get rid of a few I will be happy to take them. A review of your contributor page shows you have done your share and a couple other people's also. Thanks again Diane. You are a jewel.

RE: Walton Cem & Eells burials
Thank you for the Eells photos, Diane. I didn't really expect anything so readable given that Hannah died before 1820. Fantastic! Samuel and Hannah are my 3rd great grandparents. And thanks for adding the other photos and memorials. You've filled in a lot of holes! Thanks again.

Love your bio photo . . .wish more people (including Find A Grave members) would take the time to uncover hidden or partially hidden graves. I keep tools in my car for this very purpose and have pulled many weeds with my hands to preserve them.

Diane,
Thank you so much for fulfilling my photo request for Carrie's grave stone. I appreciate your willingness to take the time to travel to the cemetery, take the photo, and then post it on Carrie's Memorial. It's sad to see that the stone has fallen but I'm thankful to have the photo before the stone completely disintegrates.

Thank you so much!

Mary

Thank you so much for the wonderful picture of Thomas Nickles. I really appreciate your efforts to find the marker for Laura Johnson Bond. I will make a note on her memorial page, "no head stone found". Again thank you for your time and the wonderful picture.
