Bio and Links
Bio Photo The genealogy bug has bit me hard! At least, when I have time to do so! My mother's side of the family is fairly well researched on several lines — all the way back to John Alden on the Mayflower for one line, but my father's side of the family had never been researched. It's led me to "meeting" a second cousin, and fellow Find A Grave member, Carolyn Gardner Sturdy along with two third cousins in other states who've become my friends. Together, we've made a great team chasing one lead or another, chipping away layers of information, to make some wonderful discoveries along the way. So much fun!!

I've created virtual cemeteries of ancestors by family name to help aid anyone researching the same ancestors.

I fully give permission to use any photo I've uploaded in the spirit of sharing family genealogy.

If you wish to send me a private message, please do so via the "Suggest any other…" link under "Edit" on any memorial I manage. Please include your email address for easy reply. Thank you!

RE: That was fast!
You are welcome. Paul's got a little fuzzy. I can try to retake if / when I'm in that area again. Omard cemetery is about 60 miles away from me.

RE: Omard Cemetery
Just noticed we've been a member of Find A Grave for almost the same amount of time.

RE: Omard Cemetery
Good news. On Richards memorial, I have a group picture. If you click on it, the caption below does show the names of the stones around him. The first one is James. I no longer have the original but I can add this group photo and a cropped version of it. Let me know when you are done creating the memorial.

Fredrick Lemler
Hello, my name is Renee Holden. I am a descendent through my grandmother Viola A. B. Mueller. I just wanted to say hello as I have begun my history today and have found so much already and I haven't even begun to chip away at all the layers of my family tree.

I'm interested as to where this information came from?

I'd like to get a copy of her and Karl Lemler's confirmation certificate that seems to be in someone's possession.

Karl Lemler was my 3rd great grandfather.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for sending the Obit info for Viola. I did have a copy of the old newspaper clipping in my album so I posted it to her memorial. Appreciate your work on the family!

James Clark
When looking at the entries of Clarks that are associated with the Bush Creek Cemetery in Divernon, Illinois, that are listed in find-a-grave you will see a second entry by a person named Ann. I have no idea where Ann got her information.

The information that I have entered is correct as I am a direct descendent of the Clarks that I have entered. I have no knowledge of the individuals that you have referenced in your inquiry.
