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.

RE: Theodore and Helen Wallingford
That's fine. I also created memorials for Beulah and Rita Wallingford. If you are a family member I would be happy to transfer them.

Billy Yelkey Information
Thank you for the information you provided to add to the memorial for Billy Yelkey. I wonder if you could give me the source of the information so I can make note of that along with what you sent.

Thanks much,
Jayne Barth

Mabel Wallingford

I submitted an edit for DoD based on cemetery records emailed to me from the cemetery sexton.

The stone was found exactly where the email said it would be. The name "Mabel" was used both in my email and the sextons response. I did not see the records myself so I can not account for the difference in the spelling of "Mable" on the stone instead of "Mabel".

Herman Gana
Someone has made a mess of this.

Herman Gana was born on 22 June 1878 at Thayer, York, NE. He married Cecilia Hammond on 13 April or 15 April 1909 (record isn't clear) at Bellville, Republic, KS. They had a son (Virgil Peter, born on 3 Jun 1910 at Firth, Gage, NE) and twin stillborn daughters.

Herman Gana is son of Peter Gana (1851-1908) and Henrietta Wissink (1850-1901). Herman died on 18 December 1953 at Lincoln, Lancaster, NE. He was buried at Holland Cemetery, Lancaster, NE. He did marry second to Stella Gertrude Stack on 25 May 1920 at Lincoln. They had a daughter (Nellie Mae, b. 14 February 1922, died 21 March 1992. Nellie married Lonnie Lee Warren on 31 December 1944 at Waco, TX.

Cecilia Hammond is the daughter of Luke Hammond (1834-1923) and Harriet Maides (1834-1914). Cecilia's parents were from England. She was born on 13 February 1879 at Rock Port, Atchison, MO. She was the last of 10 children and was her father's favorite. Unfortunately, she died after a short illness at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Olmsted, MN on 24 April 1917. She was buried 26 April 1917 at the Union Valley Cemetery, Scandia, Republic, KS.

I have an extensive ancestry on the Hammond family.
