Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE NOTE: I will have limited internet use for a time. I will try my best to accomplish edits and answer messages, but I do anticipate some delays. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
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.

RE: Josephine Cote 137770978
I'm thinking cenotaph also.
I found George's Death record. He died in 1947 so I suspect he remarried but I can't find where he is buried. I also can't find an image of Josephine's DC which would note the cemetery. Such a puzzle! LOL! I linked all the others on that plot and noticed 3 empty spots next to Josephine. A call to Woodlawn is a good idea.

Thanks for noticing the dupe. However, they are in two different cemeteries. I sent emails to the photographers trying to determine the correct location. When that happens, I'll work on a merger or cenotaph label.

Are you related? Might you know the correct cemetery? The photos are of the same stone. The photographer in Woodlawn tells me he has never been to Washington Park.

Update for Mary Petersen
Hello! :) I sent an edit/update to add Mary's maiden name and place of birth. I got the information from "Cedar Bluffs-In Days Past 1886-1986". According to the biographical sketch in the book, her full maiden name was Enka Mary Danklefsen. Thanks for all your research! :) Have a great week.

Jeesh, I didn't realize it would be so difficult for you. I thought once you had control of it, you could manage it with ease. I really don't care about photo credit, so do what you have to to get the photo moved over to the main memorial. Thank you for giving me more information about how the site works. Take care.

Hi, Sheila. Sorry for the duplicate memorial for Emma. I transferred her to you. Feel free to use that picture and then delete/merge, whatever is easier for you.

Take care,

The information on Willitta's memorial agrees with the burial records. I have to go with that.

Arthur Lyon memorial
I sent extra information as to why I declined the edit when I declined it - I am sorry that Findagrave did not include it. the edit you sent was that Arthur was not the husband of Betsey Elonie Marsh Lyon. Their marriage was documented in Hall county, Nebraska and they were married and reported to be married at the time of her death according to her obit. I have located and added both Arthur and Betsey's obits to their memorials. It appears that Arthur remarried after his first wife's death, but his obit does not name her or any other family members. In the second message you sent concerning his place of birth, the obit does not agree with your information and names Ohio as his place of birth. I can double check and see if the successor of the funeral home at the time of his death lists this information as it would have been reported for his death certificate.

I think you may have recently sent me some edit requests for several members of this family. Somehow, they inadvertently got deleted by mistake. If you did send, would mind resending them and I shall comply soon. Thank you.
