Bio Photo Corrections will only be made through the edit tab on the memorial.

You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request.

I try to verify the accuracy of requested corrections and links before making them. Sometimes I may ask for your information source.

Thank you so much! I'd have never seen it! I've had the photo for years, but always thought it was just "daughter." (Don't know where I came up w/Arnet in my first message you!)

I'm wondering how you found a name for this infant daughter of Sarah A. and Peter Cornell. Both the photo I have and the one on Find A Grave just show "Dau. of P & S. A Cornell." Peter & Sarah Cornell were my great grandparents. Thanx!

Grandma Ketchum
On Thursday morning February 19th, the spirit of "Grandma" Ketchum passed to its well earned reward after a sojourn of 90 years and a half in its frame of clay and in the world of heartaches and joys. She was known as the "Grand Old Lady of Lisbon: for her sterling Christian character and kindly ministrations of life.
For many years she made her home at her grandson's J. Richmond, and up to within a week of her death was able to take her part in all the activities of the home equal to many two score younger than she.
She was a member of the local Methodist church and was given a funeral by the membership attending in a body to do her honor as a Christian and faithful child of the "Faith once delivered unto the saints" Rev. H. Styles Hariss, pastor of the church, officiated at the service.
Grandma was born in New York State, July 12 1829. Married and moved to Wisconsin about 70 years ago, when the West was new and civilization had not begun to sweep across the desert of America. She followed the advice of Horace Greely "Go West! and grow up with the country" She then moved to Illinois and then to Minnesota and onward to North Dakota. She has two daughters living in Wisconsin and one son out west.
Folks in Lisbon will miss her genial presence and the relating of her varied experience of life and the great experience in Christ.
Funeral service was held last Friday afternoon and internment to be made in Oakwood Cemetery. John Wesley said "Our people die well" Grandma's death was a victorious inheritance to the lad of rest.

Martha Rivers-Amanda Cemetery
I visited the Amanda Cemetery this week, but did not find the grave for Martha Rivers. I can't say that I did a 100% check of all the graves - it was a little colder than I realized so I was sort of rushed. However I did not see any markers for the Rivers family. Also there are a fair number of unmarked stone monuments, so it's possible that Martha might be buried at one of these.

Saint Aloysius Catholic Cemetery
The Oakwood Cemetery is actually very confusing when trying to find people. The Southeast portion is owned and ran by the Catholic church. Oakwood has no index for that portion. There church mows and takes care of it. There is a small sign on the southeast entrance with Saint Aloysius Catholic Cemetery listed on it. A lot of the burials are listed on find a grave as Oakwood and the other way around. The cemeteries are connected and other than the sign you would barely know it. Oakwood and Saint Aloysius planted Oak trees on the line between the two cemeteries to help. The trees are only about 8 feet tall so it is hard to tell. I kind of wish Find a Grave had them all listed together as under Oakwood.
Sorry about all the messages listed on your page. I accidently pushed shift and enter at the same time.
Thanks,
Brent Richardson
