Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 64 years ago when I followed my mother's and grandmother's conversations as they traced relationships of their friends and family.

My memorials are family members, then relatives of relatives. My childhood piano teacher and other early settlers, friends of my parents and grandparents were next. Being from a small Nebraska town, this can be quite involved. But interesting. Very interesting.

As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble - literally - over a neglected or forgotten grave marker. I add information or create memorials for the lives I discover in this way.

RE: Craycraft in Lone Fir
Hi Linda

I don't currently have my genealogy program on my pc because of computer problems. (I have a lot of Cracraft, Craycraft, Craycroft, Cracroft, Crecraft info because they are connected) I don't know of this family, but maybe a search online would give you something firm. I lean toward the idea that they are closely connected because of the proximity of the headstones to each other. Mercy, I love a puzzle!

accompany to Lone Fir?
Hi Linda -- I am wondering if you would be open to a tag-along on your next visit to photograph graves at Lone Fir? I would love to get insights on the process -- I am new to the idea of contributing here. I have a family connection to Lone Fir, and have visited quite a number of times. If not, no problem at all! But I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.
