Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photos that I have taken may be copied freely for personal use. I do kindly ask that you keep the credit intact, and not upload them to Ancestry or other sites as your own photo work. I am related to almost all of the memorials I have added and/or manage. Unless I am directly related or there is a special relationship, I am happy to transfer memorials to other family members.

Many memorials on Ancestry and Find-a-Grave reflect my previous username, DOGLOVER, which I changed to INDIANATURTLE in 2013.

Edit requests for my own family memorials that link to UB's (unknown burial location) will be declined. I will be pleased to link when a confirmed and/or documented burial location is found.

Hi Indiana: Good idea, and I have requested a transfer to my care. Whether they honor it is another matter. Thanks! Bruce.

Hi I-T: Yes, I see what you did now. I have submitted an edit to reflect her married name and eliminate the confusion. Thanks again! Bruce.

Nellie J. Gurney Myers
Hi Indiana: Thanks for catching my mistake. I must have dumbly connected Nellie to her grandmother, Eliza Ballantyne Brydon, when I created her memorial. I have corrected the error and thank you for the heads up! Bruce.

Athabasca Cemetery
Thank you for the edits to those several memorials at Athabasca Cemetery. I created the memorials strictly from headstone photos I took while there on a business trip recently. I have no relatives there, so if you know of anyone who wants to take over any of those memorials, tell them to please ask and I will be very happy to transfer them. Thank you for the work you do!

Aroma cem/death records...
Hi there E. Those new records are kind of like eating popcorn- hard to stop looking at them! I'm off to Florence, Colorado to see if I can find g-g-grandfather Jesse Smith born 1834, who ran off with Ella Harvey. I tracked her and her mother Melinda down in the 1900 census, both listed as widows and Ella as a wash woman. Hard to say what the attraction was in Florence. There is a prison in nearby Canon City, CO and I have a researcher looking there for Jesse. Best regards, JP.

RE: Nancy Easterling Photo, 164134245
Hi again, she is doing great!...I went out this morning to double check, because I had photographed that whole block several years ago, thus explaining his photo. I was pretty sure I had added them all, but to be on the safe side I went anyway, it's only 2 miles from me....I'm sorry to say but there are no markers for the ladies. If you need anything else feel free to give me a shout. G

Hi, Yes I had that info. I was out there on Thursday, but they were mowing, it was to dusty/windy in that area. Then Saturday my mom had a heart, needless to say it's not been an easy couple of days, but I will try to get by there tomorrow. G (mom's good, got to come home this afternoon.)

Thank you, Eileen, for the latest message. We've been out of town for four days and I just haven't had time to work on this, although I realize I haven't even answered the one prior to this. I have a couple very busy days ahead of me, then I'll look this all over. I appreciate all your hard work on this. My only interest in the past has been because of the Harris connection and then I tried to follow the trail of his daughter. Harris family story goes he abandoned his wife and baby and went West. This baby would be the daughter. He also had an earlier child that died. And he is found after that in the northwestern states. Can't say I'm very proud of this relative!

More later,

Thank You
