Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE NOTE: I will have limited internet use for a time. I will try my best to accomplish edits and answer messages, but I do anticipate some delays. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
I was born in the Midwest, but have lived most of my life in the south. I was stationed in Germany for a time, and have otherwise done a little travel to Europe and Asia. I spend far too much time on the computer, enjoy a good frappuccino,and I ♥LOVE♥ cats.

My primary family names are Sullivan, McCoy, Withee, Fredendall, Washburn, Nesbit, Schmidt, Petersen, Meyer (Meier), Markman, Pease, Millikan, Donnan, and still counting.

I view the memorials on this site as living tributes to our loved ones. I strive to "reunite" them with family, and if I am able, to add a personal detail or two about them.


You are welcome to use any photos which I have uploaded for your personal family research work, but please do not use them for commercial purposes. The photos I upload are intended as gifts for the families of the deceased with no regard for personal profit, with the exception of the honor of providing them, and I wish for this to be respected.

Photo Allotments

We are allotted 20 photo requests per week. I am requesting for everyone to please use your allotment. Memorials you manage, memorials I manage ~ it doesn't matter.

Headstone photos may assist in providing confirmation of birth and death details, marriage dates, children, spellings, and might even lead to the discovery of additional family members.

Requests fulfillments also provide a small reward to our volunteers who often drive several miles to obtain a photo. I have so often seen where someone will request a photo, and then ask for the volunteer to take a photo of their spouse too, without submitting the request for the additional photo. Why?

It's much easier to request 20 photos in a cemetery that it is for the volunteer to drive out, take them, edit them, caption them, and post them. While I do try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, it is nice if you also request them, so please take the time to request them and please try to remember to use your weekly allotment.

Suggestions, Corrections, and Transfers

I generally adhere to Find A Grave transfer request guidelines, but before requesting, please keep in mind that even a "starter" memorial involves effort to create and I am more than willing to accomplish edits. Also, if a transfer or edit request comes off as pushy, arrogant, demanding, or rude, do not be surprised if you are ignored.

This site was created as a means of helping others, and not intended as a means to criticize, harass, bully or badger. Be kind to your fellow volunteers as we are all trying to achieve the same goal of helping others.

Joseph P. Fletcher #118432805
The account for this memorial (FELIX 5574) is disabled. No suggestions or requests for transfers can be processed. I don't anticipate the situation changing. Therefore, I will keep my memorial for Joseph Pettingill Fletcher #146966899.
Best regards,

I would like control of my Stockhorst family memorials again. I am not certain how you are gaining control. But this is my family.

I had them linked to their parents and now all of the work I did with photo's and linkages are all undone.

That would be great! Are you speaking of June?

RE: Mildred Lippincott
Thank you so very much! I have been asking for sources after somebody told me a person "had" to have passed away in Omaha simply because the Omaha Catholic Voice had listed her death, and then somebody else got really shirty with me, saying the person was in their family, and they have obituaries at hand, but if I didn't want to accept their edits that was okay too (I did accept that person's edits--it is okay by me if family sources have records) Steve and I were remarking that you have really helped us in taking pictures, and watching for related graves. Hope all is well with you, and thank you again for the Edits!

Mildred Lippincott in Blair
Hi Sheila,
I don't seem to have a copy of the obituary for Mildred--can you send a source reference for her birth place? Thank you in advance!

Dear Shiela,
I want to thank you for the wonderful work you have performed by inputing so many people into Find A Grave. The Subject Memorials belong to my Grandfather (Walter Larsen) and my Grandmother (Elly Marie). Thank you again for your work.

I photographed all pioneer last June and have posted many pix, but, some are very hard to read. Far left corner to tree line, poor shape. Trying to go by dates etc.
