Bio and Links
My interest in cemeteries is attributable solely to my genealogy research. After spending so much time in cemeteries looking for my own ancestors, I have truly come to appreciate their hidden beauty & the histories they hold. I am always intrigued by the wide variety of stones and markers I see, and the uniqueness of memorials left.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Find A Grave family. Finding this website was very significant for me. Not only for my own research, but also for the opportunities it gives me to search cemeteries I would probably not otherwise visit.

I apologize for any delays in responding to messages and update/correction requests. I have been dealing with a family health issue (which, unfortunately, will continue for some time.)

I will process all requests/updates as soon as I can when I have extra time.

Your Stanley Talley Roquette
I had came across a Talley Roquette at the cemetery today. I had to go home to look in find a grave to see if it was the right one and it was. I'll be going back tomorrow and I'll stop and take a picture of it for you.

Hannibal Cemetery
Hi Chris,
Would you like to transfer #47222679 Melvin Jesse Iverson to my number #47376641. I have just added his mother to the Hannibal Cemetery. Jesse died at a navy base in Forida doing experimental diving.
You have taken such nice photo's at the cemetery. I live over 220 miles away, so I appreciate all the photo's and your dedication to the cemetery.
Thank You,

Cora I Peterson take 2
Re: my previous message. I just saw in Family search that Nels & Cora were parents of Shirley Stromberg and that Theodore Lee Stromberg is Shirley's husband. If you make memorials for Theodore, Shirley, & Nels and link them, I will add the photos.

Cora Peterson photo request
While taking a photo of her grave in Section 19 Lot 141 Grave 12, the grave #11 next to her is Nels V. Peterson, born 1900, died 1900. He is recorded as the owner of grave 5, 6, 11, & 12. Is he her husband? The stone has no indication of relationship. If you set up a memorial page for him, I will add the photo.

Also, since Nels owned space 5 & 6 - Shirley & Theodore Stromberg may be related to Nels & Cora. The lot card does not say he sold spaces to them for their burials in 2004 & 2011.

Johnson and Russeth

I posted the grave of Audrey E Johnson. Her husband Myron H Johnson is buried next to her and her parents on the other side (Robert H Russeth and Anna Russeth). If you are interested and want to create records for these, I can go back and take pictures.
Regards, Elaine

Thanks for editing Emma and John Koenig. Would you also link Emma Klawiter Koenig # 68682701 to her husband John F Koenig # 68682734?

John was my grand uncle and he married two women named Emma!
Thanks very much!

My great grandparents stone
I was so happy and surprised to see the stone for my paternal great grand parents. We are doing research on GERMANS moving to Russia in the late 1700s. My family arrived in Russia on one of the first ships Catherine the Great invited her fellow countrymen to sail to Russia when she became homesick for her Germans. Finding the stone with dates helped my research. My husband and family are buried at Union in St. Paul and I was wondering if you would at sometime take a photo of the Wulff monument. It is a 12 foot obelisk in the front left corner. I am in Florida and would love to see you take and post a photo. I read that you have a serious family situation and will patiently be waiting for a reply. Thank You, Morticia

Photo - Gerald McQuerry
Thank you for taking the picture and adding Gerald McQuerry on FindAGrave. Pvt McQuerry is my uncle who died before I was born. Most of the family had not seen his tombstone but due to your insert, time and kindness - the family can view and know the stone location also.
