Bio and Links
Bio Photo I joined Find-A-Grave in March of 2012 I like taking walks and I like taking pictures. Since I am within walking distance of Oak Hill Cemetery, St. Margaret Cemetery, Menasha Cemetery, Rest Haven Cemetery and St. Patrick Cemetery, they were wonderful places to go for walks. I would read the head stones and see the history and often the heart ache of families. When I discovered Find-A-Grave it only made sense to take my camera along to combine activities I was already doing to help others. I do have family buried in Oak Hill and St. Margaret cemetery but now I feel I have even more family there. I have been taking pictures and adding records randomly but am pleased to help others find their families too.

RE: Wege Family
Do you mean they are in the St Margaret Cemetery?

If the URL gets butchered, I'll try to resend with spaces in an attempt to trick Find A Grave. We were just with a couple from Kaukauna who were visiting their daughter next door. Harv just retired as groundskeeper for Holy Cross Cemetery: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=88176

Nancy,
If you would like to delete your Minerva Sperry and let me keep working on mine that would be great. You are very thoughtful to offer to do that. I am pretty sure that she has a connection to Your Sarah Sperry memorial, but I haven’t thought about it for quite a while. Perhaps you will hear more from me on that subject.

I did just find your edit suggestions for Arthur Strong and his wife Barbara – been too busy planting flowers. The weather is beautiful here this weekend. I checked your information and was happy to add it to their memorials – plus a little more information I found along the way. I was so pleased to see that you already took the time yesterday to take a photo of their marker.

I also appreciate you taking the time to photograph Mable Strong and Minerva Strong Sperry. I did not expect such quick response. You take outstanding photographs. I especially like the way you put the family together where it applies. I have several other memorials that I have entered in Oak Hill, but so far I have not requested photos for them. I intend to do that soon. Would you be interested in doing that for me, or do I need to go through photo request channels?

If you ever would like to contact me on my email for a little longer conversation, it is strong@embarqmail.com.
It has been a pleasure.

RE: John Henry Johnson
Nancy,
Thank you for the changes on John Henry Johnson and his wife, J. Amelia. I feel better now to have corrected the original information I gave to you. I noticed that you have already entered photos for their stones. If you do locate their markers again, I would very much appreciate you taking a photo of their daughter’s marker – Mabel Louise Johnson Strong (145700620).

Also, for quite some time, I have been meaning to ask you for a transfer of maintenance for your memorial for Minerva Sperry (#134488181). I created a memorial for her not long after I joined Find A Grave - Minerva Strong Sperry (#139088926). I didn’t notice, until sometime after, that I had made a duplicate of one you had made about three months earlier than mine. Although she is not a direct ancestor, Minerva is the sister to our 2nd great grandfather J. Elmer Strong. I have been working on bringing the family information together on Find A Grave for quite some time now. If you will transfer Minerva to me, I will delete mine and add my information to your original memorial. I have more things I would like to add to her. I just am slow in getting it all together… We visited Oak Hill in October of 2014 and found her parent’s graves (Henry and Siana Strong), but at that time I didn’t realize that she was also buried there – so I didn’t get a photo of her stone. I would greatly appreciate it if you would transfer Minerva’s memorial to me for maintenance.
Thanks, Nancy Strong

Hi Nancy,
Just checked Henry's Memorial and want to recognize the absolutely incredible flag/marker and aluminum rubbings photos you posted for him. Thanks so much for going the extra mile in order to recognize his service.
