Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started adding memorials to Find A Grave because I believe that everyone should be remember, even if there's no one left to mourn.

I'm using cemetery records to add memorials to Find A Grave. I'm also adding headstone photos, obituary transcriptions, and family links when possible.

If you have any questions, want to add any information or links, or correct any information, please use the 'Edit' to send the request. It makes it so much easier.

With permission, obituaries on the memorials that I've created have come from published obituary books written by the now late Wendell Tombaugh and Jean Cragun Tombaugh.

HAPPY hunting....

RE: Franklin N Hartz
Hi April,

Saint Anne Cemetery is west of town. The Old Saint Anne Cemetery was used until the late 1800's. If I remember right, it is located near town towards Riverside Memorial Cemetery. It sounds like you and I live near each other. I'm between 17 and Monterey. Jan

RE: Franklin N Hartz
Hi April,

Riverside is just east of town along the river. There are two other cemeteries both named St. Anne's (one old the other new). I live just a couple miles from Monterey.

Hi April,
I would be happy to delete my memorial but I have a couple of concerns. Are you sure we are talking about the same person? First, Deb has him interred in Monterey Cemetery but that is not correct. He is in Riveside Memorial Cemetery. She has created four memorials in a cemetery that does not exist. Second when I try to leave a message on Deb's profile it shows there is no record. Do you know if she is still active? Jan

Duplicates - Samuel J Lamb and Icy Pearl Garst
There are duplicate memorials for Samuel J Lamb and his second wife Icy Pearl Garst and I am sending this to the managers of both sets:
Samuel J Lamb:
# 86409580 shows him buried at the Kewanna Citizens IOOF Cemetery with his second wife, Icy Pearl Garst #85234540.
# 25414077 shows him buried at the Rossville Cemetery with his first wife, Minnie May Potts. The photo of the stone says 'in memory of', so perhaps this is just noted on the grave of his first wife Minnie, and his actual burial is at the IOOF Cemetery.

Icy Pearl Garst:
#78626308 (linked to # 25414077), also with her second husband

Six of the seven children are linked to #78626308 and # 25414077), but one (Mary Lois Lamb Doug # 66028511) is only linked to # 86409580 and #85234540.

Can these be combined somehow?

William Cass Gordon
Hello I noticed that you sre tsking care of WIlliam Cass Gordon's memorial. in Marshall Indiana. Is he a relative of yours? If so how are you related. I think I may be related too. I noticed on a marriage record he listed his parents as Wheeler and Elizabeth Hood Gordon.. Thank You Carol Gordon Sellers

RE: Anna Green
Probably the best thing to do would be to put a note in the biographies of both. I'll type something up for my Uncle Luther; you can cut and paste it into Anna's, if you like.

I think if we have something explaining the circumstances, it would be best to leave the link, just in case it is correct. Perhaps some tidbit of info will surface in the years to come that will clarify everything.

RE: Reuben R. Carr
Thanks for your reply. I've been checking high and low for a photo of Mr. Carr and hoped that by clicking photo someone would have one. I understand the policy better now. I do appreciate your note.

RE: Ella Petty request
I believe Ella was either an illegitimate daughter of Effie Johnson (Nee Alley) or she was an adopted daughter of Effie and husband Wiley Johnson.
