Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for many years. One of my favorite things in researching is visiting cemeteries. I love to just walk around the tombstones and try to imagine what the people's lives might have been like. I have been contributing tombstone pictures to this site to help fellow genealogists that are a distance away that can't visit their relative's gravesite in person.

My family has been a big assistance to me in my project for this website. My son, Trenton, my daughter, Alena, and my husband, Terry, have helped me take tombstone photos. So a big "THANKS" goes out to all three of them!!

Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT." Please keep this in mind when you request a transfer as it takes a lot of time and money to do research to add memorials to this site. I love working on this site, but I have run into some problems just recently.

I DO WELCOME ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS AND FAMILY LINKS. The more information the better!! I usually get the updates done within 1 or 2 days.

monument or Rachael Strader and Elizabeth Fowler
I was just able to find Elizabeth Fowler's monument on find a grave. It looks to be the same monument as Rachael Strader's. If this is true, then I'm sure that Rachel is Elizabeth's daughter. Rachael's maiden name would be Cedars. The Cedars name is often misspelled and hard to trace. I don't know Elizabeth's maiden name, but she 1st married a Cedars, 2nd marriage was to Samuel Knisley, 3rd marriage to Joshua Davis Fowler. Can you please let me know if this is the same monument and if there were other names on it? I'm still looking for Rachael's 1st husband who was a Mosier.

Thanks for all your help. You are doing a great job!!!

James P Morrison (51305676)
Hi there,

Are you sure that James P Morrison is the husband of Harriet Stearns Morrison (51305701)?

I'm researching a family from Cass County, Iowa. Research indicates that Sarah Morrison left Vermillion County, Illinois after the death of her husband, James Perry Morrison. She and her four children travelled by covered wagon to Cass County, Iowa.

When I saw that there was a "James P Morrison" in Vermillion County that died in 1888, I was sure that he was the 'missing' husband and father of the Cass County folks. But after I saw that he was linked to a different wife and child, I had to think twice.

Do you have any other information?

Thanks! John
