This is all my brothers fault! He's the one doing the genealogy.... He's traced our family Back to 1635 in Germany on my mothers side, and to WASHINGTON and MADISON on my fathers side. |
I made the mistake of going for a ride with him one day on a visit to Kansas.... ended up taking 360 pictures for a little(?) cemetery in JACKSON CO, KA (including the new CEMETERY PHOTO,.... and I hate Cemetery photos!!). Since then, I have done 47 complete Cemeteries, Including adding new ones in the State of Iowa, and Chippewa, Grant, Rock & Iowa(2) Counties in WI. and Thunder Bay, Ontario. I'm currently working on 12 in Wisconsin.
As corrections and additions are an important part of FAG, please send all SAC's you have using the EDIT button on the memorial [with 47 cemeteries & 15,000+ entries, I don't wish to chase names].
You may use the photos I've posted for your own personal use. Please follow the FAG guidelines regarding credit, etc.
Do not ask for transfers if you are merely "COLLECTING" (IE you have 344 entries, but are "managing" 1250, particularly if you can't even link husband and wives between the memorials that you are managing!) That's what virtual cemeteries are for. Please state your relationship in the SAC when requesting a transfer. If you can't put the relationship in words, perhaps I should retain management of the memorial until someone more closely related requests it. I'm looking for an exact relationship, not "my great-grandmother was a Smith". (If you want management simply to consolidate your relatives, take a look at Virtual Cemeteries as a way to do this.) PLEASE DON'T INSULT ME BY SAYING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD DATA!
I am also now trying to research and add more Bio information for my entries. I have four cemeteries photoed that were done by "inactive" contributors, and expect to get many more transfers to make the BIO corrections and complete the missing links.
My real job is to watch over MY 400+ year old oak, a "Heritage" tree, 16+ feet around. It's one of 7 over 10 feet in circumference on the farm.

Hi Mc Farland, I'm wonderinf if the man whose grave you have find and photograhed shoul be linked to a man who have lived also in Italy in the first years of the XX century, coming from Switzerland and that have played football. If you are in touch with some relatives, or descendants , or you have find them , don't hesitate to ask if they have some memories of footballer of the ancestor (he had worn red and black shirt or bleu and black one). I'm doing a search and I need a Reply in december. Thanks.
You merged the memorials quite well.
|Michael Rewey||RE: transfer Wilson|
Thanks for asking. John and Betsey (Clifton) Wilson are my great-great grandparents. I am the oldest great grandson of their daughter Edith Mary Wilson Cliff. Great Grandma Cliff talked to me about them often and I encouraged her to write about her parents, siblings and herself before she died in 1967.
The heirlooms are a set of dessert dishes and a baby cradle that they brought over in 1872 from England.
John was blacksmith. They first settled in Glen Haven and a little later in North Andover. Betsey had two brothers and a sister plus her mother who came to Grant County at different times. Her father died in England. I have some old English coins and cast a iron piggy bank from her brother Enos Clifton of Bagley
I've been to Little Grant Cemetery often - a fantastic view. About 1/2 of those buried there are relatives. Since I joined findagrave last December I had started doing some of the tombstones in the cemetery, but you did the remainder before I could finish this fall. I am pretty much the only historian in the extended families.
Thanks for your consideration.
Madison, Wisconsin (born in Platteville)

Greetings from Switzerlan. What a great surprise to find Catharina Küng Benkert's dates in Washington Twp, Green County, Wisconsin. I am presently visiting my cousin in Switzerland and we are doing research for a Küng family history. The old homes where the Küngs and the Benkerts lived are within a twenty minute drive from where I'm staying.
Thanks for your great work.

Thanks for the links, and for all you do for Find A Grave.
|Vicki Sanow||RE: MIKE????|
Both are correct. The original spelling of the surname is MAIK, changed to MIKE by some members of the family. So we have older generations spelling it Maik, the next generation Mike, and still others keeping the original spelling.
|Lorrie Horton||Pendleton family|
Many thanks for the great photos of the Pendleton graves. I appreciate your time and effort.

What a wonderful surprise to find that my uncle Myron Dahl's memorial had been transferred to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to do so.
