Bio and Links
Bio Photo Newly updated July 4th, 2014
Starting today 7/4/14 I will not be posting obituaries on any memorials I create. I will simply post a link to the website or report which paper the obituary is in. The same goes for photographs. I have always posted photos of those memorialized however as I know it is against Find A Grave policy, I will no longer do that.

With that being said, I want to vent just a little. If someone has not passed away, please DO NOT create a memorial on this site. I don't care if they already have a stone or not. It is in bad taste. Honestly, when I take a photograph of a double stone, I crop out the individual who is still alive. You should do the same.

As far as myse, most of my recent ancestors are from the Mound City / Pulaski County area in Illinois, the St. Louis Missouri area (and further south) near Mississippi Co. Missouri. That is the areas where the Atkinson's are mostly from.

The Weber side of my family are from the Illinois area also, however I have recently traced my great-great-great grandparents back to Alsace-Lorraine which is very exciting, however making it complicated to get further back.

Along with the Atkinsons and Weber (aka Webber's), other surnames include Shelly, Crittendon, and Bunch.

Hiram Davis / Nelson cemetery
John, thank you so much for the newspaper article for Marshall Davis, it is added to his memorial. It's so sad, but it is his history, and Marshall Davis should be remembered for his sacrifice. Thank you again, Sue

RE: Thomas Eric Duncan

Very interesting, I would like to know too. Barbra Streisand has a findagrave memorial and she is alive and well. If the earlier memorial is against Findagrave rules then I think they may be bending the rules abit in their favor for Barbra Streisand. Please let me know what Findagrave decides to do.

See Barbra's memorial below.

Holly's death date was an educated guess

RE: Holly Bobo
Thank you for your post. I checked for other memorials and did not find any. I hesitated for several hours before decicing to add the memorial, but I knew it would be just a matter of time before someone would. I grew up in Holladay not far from where she was found, I know the Bobo family and know the Adams family also. It would have bothered me for just a randon person to add Holly's memorial.

Please find that there is already a memorial page for Bob #27313774 and you have created a duplicate. He is my sister-in-laws brother.

RE: Memorials before death
been able to create any memorials at all for the past almost 4 years. My time is spent taking care of my wife at the hospital.

I cannot thank you enough for creating the memorials for Eyal, Gilad and Naftali. It helps those members who are Jewish or have ancestors who were Jewish express something of the sorrow they are feeling.

Interesting, John, I didn't see it in the cemetery when I created mine--must have been an unknown burial for me to have missed it. However, I'll delete mine. It is really sad to lose someone so young and just starting her life. If she's your family, I'm sorry for your loss.

RE: Duplicate Memorial for Mr. Hill
I see there are two memorials for Mr. Hill. I submitted my memorial on the famous side, don't know about the other one. The Find A Grave administrators will determine which one qualifies as famous and will delete the other one.
