Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a professional genealogist who specializes in researching old photographs. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, family, and five cats. In addition to sharing family history and photographs of my own family on Find A Grave, I also share my rescued photographs. I find photos with some identifying information at flea markets, antique shops and online auction sites and research them. Photos that I am able to identify are uploaded to my company website ( and to other sites where people may look for photos of their family, including and Find A Grave. I share these rescued photographs in the hopes that their families will find them. If you recognize one of my rescued photos as your family, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Ok Karen, The other memorial that I mentioned in the last message is a duplicate. I am requesting once again that you transfer these memorials to me as a blood relative or explain to me why you won't. PLEASE contact me. Vickie (Clan Logan ##48430548)

Karen, 5 months ago I requested the transfers of my Great Grandparents Joshua and Elizabeth Giyer Copeland's memorials to me. (I see you no longer manage Elizabeth Copeland's memorial #156333237 unless this is a duplicate.)I left public messages here and also emailed you. I would appreciate the courtesy of a response from you. Vickie,(Clan Logan)

Hi Karen, Elizabeth Giyer Copeland was my Great Grandmother. Her maiden name was spelled Giyer. I would appreciate it if you could turn her memorial over to me as a blood relative. I very much appreciate the good job that you have done. Thank you very much, Vickie (Clan Logan)

Steely in Elston Cem Cole Co MO
Hello Karen.
about 30 years ago I did some genealogy work on our family tree STEELY. I actually visited this Cemetery and looked through Cole Co Courthouse records.
(my paper records were all destroyed in a house fire in 1998) so only from memory now...
My John Steely lived in Cole Co from 1840 census until after the Civil War when he went to Forsyth where he was appointed a County Judge. This was more like roads and bridges and building a new court house for Taney Co MO.

In Cole County I found where my John was the executor of the estate of his 'brother'James Steely 1808- 1854 # 73503418. I got the impression that James had owned a tavern...
Are you connected to that branch of Steely?

Wayman Jones Memorial

I see that you linked someone named Julie Ann Starling as a spouse of my great grandfather Wayman Jones.

I am sure that this is a mistaken relationship. Wayman had two wives Sara Jane Poynter and Elizabeth Poynter. Unless you can provide proof that Wayman married a third time, I have to ask that you remove the link on his memorial.

Thank you for your cooperation.
