Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am working on geneology for my husband in the New Lisbon, Wi area with his relatives Mead ,Northcotts, and Olsons. Its been a lot of fun .

My brother has done extensive research into our family background. Our lines include Pierce, Bond, Ramey, Rolstons, Vaubels... So of course I bounce back and forth between my side and my husbands.

My interest in the cemeteries became more important, following the death of our youngst son Kris at the age of 35. He is buried in one of the little country cemeteries in our township. I have even joined our Town of Fountain Cemetery Board and am now Chairman. I like trying to make the cemeteries more accessible and attractive, for all.

And so I decided I would work with that one and other small country cemeteries in our local area. I think this is a good website as our loved ones and others should not be forgotten. One little girl was buried in our local cemetary without even a stone to mark her passing. I couldnt get that out of my mind.

I have set out to photograph the entirety of the small cemetaries in my area and so far have done the Town of Fountain cemetaries and a few outside of that. I find this very addicting!

Since connecting the present with the past is my personal goal, I will be happy to hand over any management of your family members to you. Just let me know. In return, I like to add information on my own and link them into a giant Find a Grave Family tree , so to speak.

I will also be happy to fulfill photo requests for cemeteries in Juneau or Monroe County, Wisconsin, if fairly close.

Permission is given to use any of my cemetery photos, as long as my name is on the photo credit.

RE: Beardsley corrrections on plot
I'm working from a list provided by the cemetery. It's good to have a reference.

Pictures of Andrew and Olen Moe
Hi Kari,

I was at the Camp Dodge Cemetery last week and I had taken a few pictures that had been requested for that cemetery. I did add a few pictures for Lawrence O Moe and have added those to his site listing.

While I was there, I took a bunch of other pictures that I believe are related to Lawrence. I wasn't sure if I should send you those pictures, or if they have a Find A Grave listing (I searched a couple and I couldn't locate them.

The ones I have pictures for are:
Andrew Moe 1860-1943
Andrew Moe 1885-1927
Olena Moe 1861-1943 (hers says Mother)
Otto Moe 1903-1965 (his says Brother)
Mabel Turner 1896-1940 (I'm not sure if there is a connection, but her headstone says "Mother")

Ok thank you. I live in Washougal WA. Its mild temperature here in low 70s rains at night keeping everything green and flowers 💐 watered. Would your husband know if Joseph Bires played a accordion? I inherited one but don't know the family history. Its old , the keys are held together with beas wax. My gpa was Herman Bires son of Joseph Bires and Bertha Bires .

Hi cousin, Thank you for maintaining her memorial.
Her father's probate record was listed on page 36, Abstracts of Snyder County Probate and Orphan Records by Dr. Charles A Fisher, pub. 1940.

I stopped by her grave yesterday.

RE: Ann Turner/Anderson
According to the JCHS Cemetery Book transcription, the name on her tombstone must be's been my experience, that this occurred quite often back then and still today I find it....where they remarry a 2nd [or multiple] times but are buried with the first spouse and with that spouse's surname, even though all other records will show the surname of the current or last spouse at time of death. I think perhaps it has to do with the 'children' and their feelings about the 'name' issue when it came time for the burial. Most often, but not always, they bore the greater number of their issue with the first husband. Exception being during wartime, when they'd marry quickly, impregnate the women and then die in service shortly thereafter. In these cases, you'll find the woman has more children with the 2nd spouse and therefore is buried with him and with his name as well.

Thanks for doing all the 'edits'....:)

You're welcome. I will be up that way in a few weeks for a family reunion and came across it. Glad it is fixed!

Salome Cline # 138152520
She is listed as buried in the Lindale Mennonite Cemetery in Rockingham County, VA. She is listed as the daughter of David and Susan Cline. This is incorrect. Their daughter is actually #71237984 Salome Cline Smucker buried in Oak Lawn Cemetery in Bridgewater, VA. She is my GG grandmother. Not sure who this other Salome Cline is, but definitely not David and Susan's daughter.

RE: Elizabeth Hall
Thanks for fixing it and confirming what I had. Sorry I haven't had time to write any but we are so busy with the family (grandsons 9, 8, 5, and 3). We never have free time. Thanks again for the fix.
