Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am of Mother of 3 young adults. I have always enjoyed genealogy but now I am addicted. I get the bug from my mom who started with just her family and has over 15,000 names and the sources to back it up. I got interested in findagrave from a friend. But saw not only the benefit to genealogy but when I live away from where I grew up it meant a lot to be able to go online and pay my respects to my family who have died. The 1st night we were all in Montana at a reunion together we (all 26 of us) went and decorated my grandparents, great-grand-parents, great-aunt, a nephew, parents of a sister-in-law and my 2 brothers graves. They are all on findagrave now and even though I live back home I can get online and see them, their families and my ancestors.
If I have a direct ancestor of yours I would be glad to transfer it to you IF it is not also in my direct line. Also any pictures I have on my memorials you may use.
It takes all of us to accomplish this great work. Nothing I do is with evil intentions. If I have offended you please accept my sincerest apology.
Your internet cousin, Renae

Daniel N. Drake Pic

Dear Renae,

The picture you have attached to Daniel Drake # 22302710 is actually of his son, Daniel Newell Drake # 104447299. I obtained that picture at our local LDS. Could you please remove it so there is no confusion. A picture of the elder Daniel Drake has not turned up yet, but am looking forward to the day that it does.

Both of these men are in my direct line, 2nd and 3rd G-Grandfathers. Please feel free to get back to me if you need any further information.

Update edit
BTW there is a way to cancel an edit request if you've made a mistake. First you click on the edit tab on your member page. Then select "Edits I sent that are pending" in the Display box. You can then scroll down to the edit you are looking for. There is an X in the upper right corner of the edit that will remove the edit request.

I've had to use that a few times when right after I made a request, I said $#@@%! That's not what I wanted to do. :)

RE: Grace Lovdahl 117207516

Grace Lovdahl
Thank you for your update requests for Grace Lovdahl. After I approved them, I wanted to check back on the memorial, and I discovered there were two Grace Lovdahls with similar information. I don't think they both could be Grace Marjorie Sontag Lovdahl.

One was married to Torge Lovdahl and is buried in West Holden Lutheran Church. Her memorial is #117207516 and the dates on the memorial are April 14, 1884 - May 1969.

The other one was married to Clarence Lovdahl and is buried in Wautoma Union Cemetery. Her memorial is #112828249 and the dates on the memorial are April 7, 1894 - July 23, 1972.

Something doesn't sound right. HELP!!!!

Martha Keech Spencer
You have Martha buried in the Spencer Cemetery, in the town of Maryland, Otsego County, NY. There has been quite a bit of discussion about the two Spencer cemeteries in Otsego County. Jonathan and Martha are actually buried in the Spencer Cemetery in the Town of Unadilla in Otsego County--not the town of Maryland. I'm afraid that I helped add to the original confusion when I confused the two cemeteries and added info to the wrong one. We have done a lot of work in the cemetery in the town of Unadilla, and I have visited it many times. Thanks for the interest in my 5th great-grandparents.

Dear Renae,

Well, another distant relative! I'm Glenn and Hertha Jones' oldest son, Ron. Was looking up info when I came across this site. Dad's birth year is incorrect, should be 1918. They did own the store in Clyde Park for 40 years(named Glenn's Shopping Center. I began working in the store with them in 1948 and did until 1964 (between military service and college)when I left to pursue my career in broadcasting..which I'm still doing in Billings, MT. Lost my wife in 2011 to cancer. Which of the Burgess boys are your parents? Where do you live now? Etc.
My email address is Ph# 406-652-2195 (H). Would enjoy hearing from you.
