Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved cemeteries. The stones are beautiful works of art.

I began working on my family tree a couple of years ago to put an end to the myths that I was raised with. We are 100% German, well... really we are about 50% German and 50% Irish. We were millionaires until Gussie died and she "Willed" all the money to 20 different charities. Well... she did give all the money to charities, but it was around $150,000. Which is a lot of money! So, I have been hooked on genealogy ever since.

The names I am working on are Kramer, Jeschke, Kleinschmidt, Kister/Keister, Pierce, Kelly, Rochford and Smith. All from Clinton County, Iowa.

Coats, Keys, Smith from Randolph Co., Indiana.

McCambridge, Blair, Houck, Gonterman from Macoupin Co., Illinois.

Simpson, Chrisman, Bates and Rogers from Wayne Co., Kentucky.

Linck and Keller from Wheeling, West Virginia.

Lee Cemetery Beaman
Hi, I am a g-g-granddaughter to Morrison M. Lee and Elizabeth Freeman-Lee and am planning a trip to see all 5 of my families cemeteries. BUT more important I am making application for a military headstone for Morrison M. Lee who died Nov. 5, 1861 of fever in the prairie of Sedalia. I need a "name and address of someone who will accept prepaid delivery of his headstone." Since they will not allow me to place a headstone where he might have been buried in the mass UNKNOWN SOLDIER grave on the prairie, I thought he should be with his wife and parents, that are buried here. I am hoping that you have the Sexton's name/number so I can contact them, if that is, you are not that person.
Thank you so very much
Carole Taylor
ps: I need more directions on how to find it>
I google.mapped it and it is kinda fague.

RE: William Edward Mallette
I've never searched for obits so I don't have any idea of where you would find them. Sorry I can't be any help in this area. Chris

RE: William Edward Mallette
I went to the cemetery today since it's going to rain most of next week. Unfortunately, there isn't one marked grave in that whole section. I have posted a photo of the section. There are usually only 10 graves to a lot in that area. Sorry, I couldn't do any better. William does not appear in the cemetery records at all, so I'm not sure he is even in this cemetery. Chris

RE: William Edward Mallette
I'll give it a try, but the other searcher should have been able to find her if she had a marker. The lots in that area are very small. However, this is a confusing cemetery with several marking systems. If there is no marker, I will try to map the lot so that I can at least show you where she is buried. Chris

RE: William Edward Mallette
There are a lot of unmarked graves in this cemetery and the record are very incomplete. The section he is in is one of the older sections and although you can find the lot, lots of times you have to take all the marked graves in the lot to try and determine a location for an unmarked grave. I used to do a lot of that work at Santa Ana Cemetery, but as I get older, I tend to go for the easier grave requests. If no one else finds it, I'll give it a try after all the rain stops out here.

William Edward Mallette
Hi - You entered a memorial for William on November 10, 2014 at the Santa Ana Cemetery, Orange Co., CA. I just looked up his death record on Ancestry and they give his birth and death date as follows: Birth Oct 27, 1882, Missouri; Death Aug 4 1959, Los Angeles County, CA. I thought you might like to know. I didn't use the edit tab as I thought you might like an explanation of where the information was found. I hope this is helpful to you. Chris

Gemmell Family
The Gemmell Family was killed in Maryland when the plan crashed into their house.

We have created memorials for the mother & two children.

The mother was found shielding the two children from the fire & smoke.

Please help us pass the word to have other Find A Grave member show their support & stop by the memorials.

Thank you

O. N. Geers
Thank you for checking your records. Our biggest concern right now is to find someone with a connection to Oswell Neville Geers who could write a NOK letter to accompany our documentation requesting a headstone.
