|Bio and Links|
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.
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.

Always a pleasure to work with you.

Hi--we try (don't say we always do) but we try to upload any tombstone pictures to Find before we forget to do so. I was reading some of your letters below, and am delighted to see that you are making connections with the Sharpnacks/Sharpnaks/Sharpnecks--even that Eliel! Good for you!

I apologize for being too late to post the cemetery photos for Helen and Frederick Hansen. I did find the Cemetery and the grave markers and took pictures. I am too late to upload them to Gravefinder, but would you like them? I can send them to you. Frederick's is very old and very difficult to read or see in a picture so I enlarged the area with the writing in a separate picture. I also have the picture of Helen, but there are not dates on the marker. Other pics I took are Charley Hanson and Freddie Hansen sons on Hans and Lena Hansen and the Headstone of Hans and Lena Hansen as well. Thanks. Sandy Weinman - Omaha NE

Got it. I will try and thanks. Our family connection is Meyers with an s and they are from the same general area of Germany but Meyer and Meyers are common there; Meier not so much. I really like the linking ability and I am anxious to try it. Thanks again. Paul
I did not get the email and my wife had already deleted the spam. Can you send it again and I will watch for it. If you don't mind my asking, who is your GMother Meyers? My wife is a Meyers and her family is from this area. We are in regular contact with several of the elder Meyers relatives and that is how we learned of Larry's death in February. He is a distant cousin through his father Hugo - a great uncle born in Shelby County.

|Merle Ilgenfritz||RE: Fred and Maude Ilgenfritz|
I will look into it in the morning. I am glad to have added something. Let's communicate via email. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a tremendous amount of info on the Ilgenfritz family.
I'll see what I can dig up on the Harvey branch.
|Terri Burris||RE: Grant|
I agree about her name. She used Pearl. Her gravestone says Pearl, and on her son Rosco's marriage license, he list his mother's maiden name as Pearl Smith. But Nellie could have been her first name and Pearl her middle. Thank you for all the work and research you did on her memorial. I added grave marker photos to Pearl's grave and her husband's. They are older photo's. I hope this upcoming week is a Good one!

I have added the information about his first wife, Mary C. Thompson, and the marriage in November, 1881 in Douglas County, Nebraska. Lee
