Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am always delighted to discover that someone has entered information about my far-flung relatives on Find a Grave. I want to do my part by adding as much as I can about the graves in my part of the world.

I have been researching my family history since 1978. A few of the surnames that I am particularly interested in include: Jewell, Holdridge, Brigham, Palmer, Kathrens, Walker, Hunn, Rebman, Carter, Joslin, Demarest, and many more.

Countries where my ancestors lived include: Ireland, Scotland, England, Germany,and France. Some of the states where ancestors have lived include New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, California, Texas, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Ohio, Iowa, Arizona, and Hawaii.

If you would like me to transfer a memorial, do not hesitate to ask. I can also remove a photo if you have a better one you would like to replace it with.

Please note: I am happy for anyone to use any photos I post on Find A Grave as long as you give me the courtesy of crediting them to me. Thank you in advance.

Wow - that was really fast. Thank you so much for the edits you did and then transferred her to me. I am most grateful. I would not have found where she was buried (with her mother) had you not entered her on Find A Grave. Most Sincerely - Carolyn Krueger

Charles James Kathrens children
I have only two of Charles's children and hardly any information on Mary Ann Donnelly.

I have Robert T Kathrens and Catherine Kathrens Finney. However, I am thinking there may have been more than just the two? Do you know if there were any others? Do you have any information on Charles and his wife Mary? I am seeming to have no luck in finding much about them except the dreadful story of the Sallie House I keep finding.

RE: Kathrens Connection
I think that is a trait that my Great Grandma Mildred inherited. She was always warm and inviting. We visited her every chance we could when we lived in the area. She lived in Denison for the longest time and told the most fantastic stories and made the most wonderful chocolate chip cookies. My mom has the recipe so it's like we still have a piece of her with us.
I don't know if you had a chance to meet Mildred or her daughter, Marbeth, or son, Merle. My grandma Marbeth died in '84 but I don't remember if she got to meet my brother or not. I heard she was a wonderful lady as well. The only Kathrens that we knew was Mildred. So she carried on the stories about her family and because I was so young, I honestly don't remember them.
So far in everything I found, her mother's maiden name was spelled Casper. Though, in the tree, I did put the variations of spellings cause you never know.
Thank you so much for contacting me. You can email me anytime at :) I would love to hear more of the family. I don't know much but always willing to share what I do know and love talking to family, no matter the distance.

Hello. My name is Dodie. I am the great granddaughter of Mildren Kathrens Lukens. She was from Denison, Kansas. Her father was William D Kathrens who was a descendant of Charles James Kathrens from Ireland. While working on the family tree on Wikitree, I came across several of your memorial pages. I thought you would like to know about Mildred. She was a very awesome and sweet lady. She is buried in the Denison Cemetery in Denison, Kansas. Her husband's name was Merle Lukens. Daughter: Marbeth Ann Bartlett Son: Merle Lukens. My dad is Marbeth's son. I have a younger brother as well. Just thought I'd reach out and try to connect. :)

Union Cemetery Moosup CT
I went to this cemetery today and fulfilled your PR for Jonathan Hunn d 1800. Unfortunately the stones mostly face North and the sun doesn't shine on the face of the stone. The engraving is not very deep and even using my photo reflector, the photo didn't come out the best. If someone can take a better photo, I'll delete mine.

RE: Phala Mae Palmer
You're welcome! Yeah, and the camera was stolen from my car at the cemetery! Been checkin' on Ebay! LOL That one took really sharp pics from a distance. Oh well. Let me know if I can help you with anything else. Take care.

I went by the cemetery today and got a couple more pictures and added them to your memorial. It was a picture perfect day today but the camera I'm using (my good one got stolen) just doesn't capture small detail at a distance like my other one did. Please rearrange however you wish and remove photos you don't want.

RE: Phala Mae Palmer Transfer
You're welcome. I will try for a better picture of your grandmother's plaque when I go back this week. Some photos I'd rather not post when they are lousy quality. But I figure a lousy photo is better than no photo! LOL It always makes me happy when someone contacts me to tell me they've discovered a memorial I created. Makes this all worthwhile.

RE: Phala Mae Palmer
The memorial has been transferred to you. I added two additional photos of the building where she is entombed as well, and added the plot location and the place of death that Glen Abbey has listed in their records. I believe I had to "zoom" in with the camera to get the photo of her plaque because it's up high and those photos rarely come out clear, especially if the lighting is off.

Please go ahead and remove the extra photos I've added if you wish. Maybe you have other photos you'd like to add instead. I think the limit is 5 without having to pay.

I'm glad to be of help to you and appreciate you letting me know you were happy to see your grandmother's memorial. It makes this work worthwhile! Let me know if I can help with anything else.

Take care,
