Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in the Midwest, but have lived most of my life in the south. I was stationed in Germany for a time, and have otherwise done a little travel to Europe and Asia. I spend far too much time on the computer, enjoy a good frappuccino,and I ♥LOVE♥ cats.

My primary family names are Sullivan, McCoy, Withee, Fredendall, Washburn, Nesbit, Schmidt, Petersen, Meyer (Meier), Markman, Pease, Millikan, Donnan, and still counting.

I view the memorials on this site as living tributes to our loved ones. I strive to "reunite" them with family, and if I am able, to add a personal detail or two about them.


You are welcome to use any photos which I have uploaded for your personal family research work, but please do not use them for commercial purposes. The photos I upload are intended as gifts for the families of the deceased with no regard for personal profit, with the exception of the honor of providing them, and I wish for this to be respected.

Photo Allotments

We are allotted 20 photo requests per week. I am requesting for everyone to please use your allotment. Memorials you manage, memorials I manage ~ it doesn't matter.

Headstone photos may assist in providing confirmation of birth and death details, marriage dates, children, spellings, and might even lead to the discovery of additional family members.

Requests fulfillments also provide a small reward to our volunteers who often drive several miles to obtain a photo. I have so often seen where someone will request a photo, and then ask for the volunteer to take a photo of their spouse too, without submitting the request for the additional photo. Why?

It's much easier to request 20 photos in a cemetery that it is for the volunteer to drive out, take them, edit them, caption them, and post them. While I do try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, it is nice if you also request them, so please take the time to request them and please try to remember to use your weekly allotment.

Suggestions, Corrections, and Transfers

I generally adhere to Find A Grave transfer request guidelines, but before requesting, please keep in mind that even a "starter" memorial involves effort to create and I am more than willing to accomplish edits. Also, if a transfer or edit request comes off as pushy, arrogant, demanding, or rude, do not be surprised if you are ignored.

This site was created as a means of helping others, and not intended as a means to criticize, harass, bully or badger. Be kind to your fellow volunteers as we are all trying to achieve the same goal of helping others.

Thank you,

RE: Elizabeth Lynch
And I spelled it wrong. lol You can find her records on Family Search . born 1851 died Oct 16 1869. (she was 18 I think. anyway a baby boy died also) When I was at the cemetery (great records there) they had no one to help find their grave as a big funeral was on its way . Not may stone in the very old part I guess. As far as I could search I didn't find ANY of my Lynch family stones but must had gotten information on Cemetery computer.
Find A Grave Memorial# 55134273 this is John Lynch memorial. I want to go back there someday for better search! Plot: W 1/2 Lot 83 Section OLD 1st from South Line this is the area the other lynch family is buried.
I just looked into the Howe family this week so that is why I commented. The Lynch family way back when was a hard path to put together. Especially son John. Oh, Family search again marriage Dec 2 1868.
Glad to help. Let me know what you may find

Livina Howe
I haven't checked out who this Daniel is, but I think this is the wife of James E Howe Find A Grave #164129950 you have up.
I can't read the original record you linked because it is too large and only able to see a little bit of it.
her name was Lovina J Johnson.

If you call Elmwood Cemetery and Mausoleum at 708- 453-0273 and:
1. Ask if your photo request person has a headstone / grave marker.
2. If there is a headstone / grave marker ask for the section, block, lot and grave number.
3. If you send that information to me, Susan (#48964989) I will go there and fulfill your photo request. Of course any other Find A Grave volunteer can also fulfill your request if you then add the headstone location information to your photo request page.
Good Luck.

I am sorry I did not accept your changes on her memorial yet, but I did not want to approve it and then find out it was wrong. I am having problems finding out much information on her. I think she might have had a daughter Minnie that married John Hamilton. there is some indication that Minnie Kerl and John Hamilton had children in South Dakota. It is possible that Mary really is a Kerl and not a Hamilton. If you could get me some more information I would be glad to change it. Do you know if she was born in Norway???
