Bio and Links
Bio Photo In appreciation for what others have done and all the hard work that happens here I will try to put back as much as I have received. I will try to add names and pictures from my own area. If you find one of your relatives that I have entered and the information is incorrect or you do not want it on this site, please contact me and we will correct or remove as quickly as possible. You also have my permission to use any of the pictures I have put on this site for your own personal family use. No need to ask. If you want a family member's memorial transferred to you, just ask.

If I am able to fulfill requests for names, photos or other additional information, please feel free to request.

Happy hunting to everyone of you who are out there searching and trying to fill in all the open spaces in family history. And, thank you to all the hard working volunteers that make this site so great.

Thank you for the transfer of this memorial to me. It is good to be able to put my grandfathers family together. Thank you for the work you do to make that possible for us.

re: Anna Lukassen
I saw another hint about a person named Anna Kosch with the 1857 birth year I am looking for, so I will follow that trail. Thanks for your input to pretty much rule out the Anna Lukassen b. 1875.

Anna Lukassen # 95293799
Are you close to Bellwood and can check this lady's info?? I am trying to confirm if this was Anna Kosch Lukassen, and perhaps her date of birth is 1857, or at least earlier than 1870.

I am hoping, by chance she is Anna Kosch dau. of John Kosch (1823). But there are many Anna Kosches.

Thanks, Lynn

Thank you so much for your work. Mary Jane BLIZZARD was my 3X great grandmother. I am in TN and it would have been virtually impossible for me to find this. I would like to tell her story and fill in a few facts for her if it is possible to transfer it to me. Can you help me with that?

Also, does "potters field" mean that there is no marker and we do not know exactly where her grave is?

Thank you,
Barclay Hurst

Thank you that really did help to identify Harriet Holman on the S C Evans heastone. Turns out she was my 3 gr gm's (Sarah Cook Evans) sister.

Thanks again,

Shirley - you don't happen to have the list for the subject cemetery or know who I could get it from? I recently visited, and photog'd the entire cem, related to nearly everyone in there and reviewed the list at the gate but did not photog it - wish I had....
Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Beal Cemetery in Belle Plaine
I am very happy to do it and will get it done this weekend or before. I was also thinking about photographing the entire cemetery monuments. It's a beautiful place and there are not many monuments up there. Have you been here to see it? Some of the grave markers are so old that they are hard to read so it's been there for a long time. It is our pioneer cemetery and is high on a hill. Again, I am happy to help!
