Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found Find-A-Grave accidentally, but I love the idea, hope that it always stays free to the public.

If there is something I've posted that you question, or are concerned about; please contact me. I'd like to get the information on the memorial as correct and complete as possible.

I try to use as many sources as possible (that I can get to) to get the information correct; such as Cemetery records, Church Records, Funeral home records, County records, State records, obituaries, & from the families; but I know mistakes can be made. Please let me know.
One problem that comes up a LOT, is duplication; since I work mainly from church records, I have no idea if indeed there are 2 cemeteries; or 1 cemetery with various different names that were used over years; both instances have occurred. But what is the right answer?? I have found 1 person who has two stones in 2 cemetery's in 2 different STATES; but where is the body actually?? Or a different person entirely? I can't tell you because I don't know.

Myself? I am researching for my own inter-related family branches as well; Bahr, Baker, Hays, Keyes, Kussmann, McLaughlin, Meeker, Shaw, Visger, and Walker (up to great-great-grandparents and all their siblings so far).

I found a statement about links that is similar to my own beliefs. Myself? I believe in adding information as found because others might not have that particular detail that will help them. I have requested of Melaney Friesen Shaum to be able to use it and with permission, here it is:

Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten.

I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.

Marie Josephine Alexia Catudal
Thank you very much for having listed the death date of Alexia. I have more complete information on her and thought you may be interested and may want to add this information.
Alexia was born 25 October 1868 at St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, Québec, Canada.
Her father was Jacques Aimé (Jim) Catudal (1841-1925)
Her mother was Claire Monette (1843-1903)
Again, thank you for all that you do making these records available to us all.

Gerald W. Persinger (Memorial# 119225701)

The information I used to create his memorial came from his obit. I do not add obits to memorials as they are copyrighted.

Thank you so much for adding the links and the bio content. I certainly did not intend to duplicate your page, and I am grateful also to SIOregon, whose grave marker photograph determined I had placed Josephine in the wrong cemetery.

Florus O Timberlake?
Also looking for him, father of Katie J Timberlake Clapp, believe he may have also been buried Pleasant View Cemetery, died Apr 1890. Are you able to check the records, he doesn't seem to be listed yet? How does one request a photo when person not listed???

In the future, would you consider consolidating the submissions for mother and father links into one SAC instead of two?

Info has been added to Ila Patton as you requested.

Do you happen to know the date that the obit was published in the newspaper?

Thank you.

Miller Baby 97216287
I believe this would be Harvey W. Miller born 22 Sept 1877 and died 20 July 1878 the son of John William Miller 26056775 and Laura Emma Mason Miller 64513010. These two are my Great Great Grandparents on my Mother side. Harvey would have been a brother to my Grandfather Edward E. Miller.

I understand he was buried by his maternal grandparents John Wesley Mason and Sarah Kindlespire Mason and there is no stone. Our family hopes to add a stone.

Thanks for your help.

Oakland Union Cemetery
Hi - Was wondering if you live close to the Oakland Union Cemetery in Cloud County, Kansas. Have a person buried there from 1889 but without a marker. I see you added a plot # and was curious where you were able to obtain that info. Thanks. Bill.
