Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave has been a great way for me to pursue my goals as a family historian. It is much more than just a record of where folks are buried with the feature to link family members and essentially build a family tree for all other family members to view and appreciate.
As I visit cemeteries I try to take as many photos as possible to post to existing memorials or to add to new memorials where needed.
I will gladly transfer any memorial of a family member or friend of yours. Please use the edit tab to request transfers. I am not fussy about the guidelines - just ask.

Thanks for adding the bio note. I was also pleased to see all the links! It's nice people accomplished them so quickly. I like to see the family tied in, but I guess you can tell that without me saying so :-)

Jennie Powers Memorial
Hi M,

Sorry I caused the confusion. I was a bit abrupt and hurried. I also see I sent you some marriage info. There should be some links made soon to some of her children

Reference "D/O Jasper Hartford and Mary J Coy"

Should read:

Jennie Hartford McDuffee Powers was the daughter of Jasper Hartford and Mary J Coy. She married (1) Sam McDuffee on 1 March 1892, and (2) William Powers on 1 March 1898 in Omaha.

I wasn't able to find Jennie's dad. It seems he passed away in York, NE.

Isn't it a little odd she would marry both husband's on March 1st?

Thank for dropping a line,

Marie & John Clark
I have claimed these two photo requests. The records show that there are 3 other Clarks buried in this plot, Infant Merle(1932), Perry Nugent(1922), and Quentin Kearny(1908-1966). Are you also interested in these photos if there are headstones?

Hi M Gil,

Thanks for making the links and adding the birth state, and also for informing me that link requests can be made via the edit button in a different way than via message. I didn't notice that, but do see this option now.

Thanks also for the offer to transfer. I manage all siblings linked to parents except Emma, but I am not related at all and do not know if this would justify transfer. It might be beneficial from the standpoint of me working with this family so you would not possibly need to edit, but beyond that, I do not feel it is necessary. I'll leave this up to you.

Have a great weekend,

Use of Cemetery Photo
Would you permit me to use a copy of your photo of Elizabeth E Grimm's,#95590393, grave marker in Graceland Cemetery, Madison, SD in her file in my Edman Family Tree? I will cite your contribution, if permitted to use it. Thank you for placing Elizabeth's information and grave stone photo on-line. I doubt that I would ever have gotten to South Dakota to look for her grave. I knew that she died in South Dakota in the early 1900s, but didn't have the exact date or the specific cemetery. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
