|Bio and Links|
Long-time instructor of writing and women's studies at Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH. I am an addictive reader, am interested in geneaology, folk music and sacred harp, and am an Anglican, guitar player, singer, guardian of two rescue dogs and mother of a beautiful adult son.|
I enjoy walking in cemeteries and have made it a personal project to photograph and record the headstones of military personnel in addition to requests in local cemeteries, in honor of their service and the service of my father, stepfather, and uncles in World War II and Korea, friends from Viet Nam, and students from the Gulf Wars and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. If any of these service persons or others I have added are family members and/or you wish to manage their memorials, just let me know. I am happy to transfer.
Anyone who wants to use my photos in their family tree, on Findagrave, or any other site may do so without my permission.
I am primarily a volunteer photographer and often am unrelated to the people whose memorials I make, so I am happy to transfer. I am doing this work to honor what would otherwise be lost lives, to make visible what has been forgotten.
I would very much appreciate tributes of love to the memorial of a baby whose heartbreaking obituary I found in a newspaper from 1923:
Baby John Doe: 136921616 and to a young girl who had a hard life and a brief stay in this world: Rene Holley 145768090
Heartfelt thanks to all those who have already added notes--you mean more than I can say

Another stone/death record conflict. Thanks. Judi

Thank you. They are pretty distant cousins, so if someone else closer comes along and wants to manage the memorials, I will transfer to them. I noted your pictures, they are good.

Found Opal E Noaker's Birth and death dates from ancestry.

Can you please make corrections? Thank you!
|Candace Good||RE: Margarete Noaker photo thanks!|
|Candace Good||Opal Noaker Headstone|
Talked with my cousin and I don't see him going out there anytime soon. Next trip to Ohio I make I'll go out there and update photos.
Thanks for all your help!
|Candace Good||RE: 149596976|
Have a great day!
|Candace Good||RE: 149596976|
I don't understand what you're asking.
Remove Opal's headstone because there's no death date?? I have a cousin who lives in the area that I'm going to ask to go over and check to see if there's a death date inscription. If so I'll redo the headstone picture. Respond if your message meant something else
Please delete the stone photo from 132828598. You have this on another grave memorial.

I've seen many of your posts. You've done a wonderful job creating/updating so many Memorials. Thank you for doing all that!
I've been able to nail down 1 branch of my Dad's genealogy going back to Wales, so I'm on the hunt for all the others.
Thanks again for all your hard work!

Done! You're welcome!
