Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started my family genealogy many years ago and was surprised how far back I could trace my ancestors. My first experience on Find-A-Grave was viewing the headstones of my great-great-Grandfather / Grandmother. Adding memorials gives me the opportunity to give back a little in hopes that others discover some of their ancestors. A friend of mine many years ago told me that "Sometimes we just need to get back in touch with family" as we were wondering through a cemetery with some of my ancestors.

I will be happy to assist updating any of the memorials I manage with pictures, links, or information about that person. Please feel free to contact me with your requests or corrections on any of the memorials.

I don't have problems transferring a memorial to you if you're related to that person and that person is not in my family tree. Please use the method through Find a Grave via the memorial when requesting a transfer.

Michael and Louisa Slagel Oswald
Michael's/Louisa's son, William Frederick, was my great grandfather on my mother's side of the family.
I didn't know that Michael served in the army during the Civil War...interesting information. One thing I noticed was that only a few of his children were listed on the page---I think he had 13!

Fredrick Oswald
Thank you so much for transferring him. Sorry I'm late in getting back to you - it's been one of those months.

I noticed you have quite a few Oswalds and wondering how/if you're related? I know one of Frederick's sons, Walter, did move to Los Angeles and lived out his life there. Two of Walter's sons died there (Ohmer d. 1957; Arthur, d. 1960). The other son, Lisle F. (b. Dec 1902) I believe went to TX. If related through Walter, I have some old pics of him & his wife, Kitty, I'd be happy to send. Just let me know!

Thanks, again!!

duplicate pages

In researching my mother's extended family, I found duplicate pages for her cousin Marilyn Singleton Rumsey; #104619150 and #104618883. The latter of these is linked to her husband's page. Thought you might want to delete one of them.

Harry Smith and John Estep
How did you determine that Harry and John Estep were buried at Pioneer Cemetery? My husband and I were at Pioneer on Sunday and there were no markers for Harry or John. In fact, there were no markers beyond the mid 1800's. Is it possible that they were buried at Morristown's Union Cemetery?

Transfer request
Hello and thanks for all you do!
If you are not related I would so appreciate to take over the care of the memorial # 27062980 for Hannah E. Karrick. I have been an avid researcher for over 40 years, I have 3 daughters with the surname of Karrick, and have deeply researched the Karrick lineage in America. I would vow to find Hannah's (and her husband B.F.'s) family and get her (& him)linked to them again and will transfer this memorial upon request of any descendant family member.
Thank you for your consideration.

Edward Mohr # 101538784
Hi Grizzly,
I was back at Lakeside Memorial Lawn Cemetery in
Folsom, CA. and stopped to check on Edward Mohr's niche. The tape had been removed so I took another couple of photos for you. Unfortunately, as I noted in one photo, there is still tape underneath that I was unable to scrape off.
Best, Connie
