Bio and Links
Bio Photo Upon "googling" my great grandmother's name, I found a link to a photo of her headstone on Find a Grave. I was amazed, became hooked on this site, and have been contributing ever since.

My hope is to leave a legacy here for my children, grandchildren, and others by adding data and links.

I am not trying to amass large numbers of memorials. I just try to add data. I enjoy helping others, and I appreciate that others have helped me.

I create memorials with dignity and respect for those who have passed. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove photos you do not want on a memorial.

Forgive me for not having all burial locations identified. It takes time to research, some whereabouts are unknown, and some obituaries/mortuaries currently do not list burial or disposition details. Those people still deserve to be remembered here.

Unless one of my memorials is my relative or close friend, I do transfer memorials if you can and will add information.

Please let me know if I have an error so it can be corrected.

I appreciate knowing about added posts to my memorials such as photos or obituary clippings that would help me link family members.

I am happy to share gravestone photos with you to use in your family albums.

Funk #100070997
Your unreadable Funk is Lora Funk - born 1865 died 1928. I looked at your pix real close and I'm sure that is 1865 not 1885. Just thought I'd mention it. Merry Christmas! Diane R.

RE: More Groenvelds
Thank you. I appreciate the additions to my memorials. We don't get to Iowa so the photos are nice.

RE: Henrietta Carpenter
Thank you! I will when I find out if they are her descendants.

Thank you for the photos of her headstone. I can't think of the words to describe my emotions when I saw them for the first time.

Hello Marilynn,
I've transferred Waldo to your care. And I just have to tell you I LOVE your memorial page for Jiffy. I have an older dog who has really slowed down and I think I will have to do this when he passes on.

Pleasant View
Thank you so much for using your photos to "find" so many headstones at Pleasant View and adding their memorials to F-A-G. It's because of wonderful volunteers like you that these cemeteries get completely documented. MUCH APPRECIATED!

RE: McVay, McVeigh
That's fine. Just interesting that they changed the way their name was spelled. I had a family name of Hoar and the guy changed it to Oar. And my family had a name with one M, but somewhere along the way some of the members decided to add two M's. So some spell their name with one M and others with two. It never changes the fact that we are all related. :)

Victor Holzhauer
His obit is in the Joliet Herald on December 15, 1984, Section 2, page 3. I cannot access it but the Joliet Library and the Herald both have copies.

If I took a guess, I would say he is at Memorial Park Cemetery just outside of Pontiac. If cremated, his ashes may have been interred/scattered there as well. I couldn't find anything else. Sorry. Pam

RE: Mary Holzhauer
Oh, ooops! Sorry. Well, you got the idea anyway, I guess. I'll see what I can find on Victor. There have always been lots of Holzhauer's around here. Still are. I might be able to find something. I will let you know. Thanks, Pam

Peter Poisal (1818-1898)
You created the memorial page for Peter Poisal in 2012. ABT 1843 in WV Peter married Catherine Gallaher. She was born in 1821 in VA and died in 1880 in Butler Co., IA. Is she buried next to Peter? He out-lived her 18 years. Thank you. Mark Patterson
