Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave was very useful to me in my past family research, now it's time to give back to this site. Find A Grave is where we find and add our memorials to our friends and relatives. It's wonderful to have this place where we are able to see the headstone, maybe their picture, and add their life story, and link them to their parents, spouse and children. It broke my heart to find someone dear to me here, after visiting the grave for such a long time and running out of conversation with the headstone, so began the taking of pictures of the markers next to the grave. If you stand at the grave, name all the children on the stone, and tell them what the grandchildren have been up to lately, you get to the sad part of the grandchildren they never got to know. Should our grandchildren ever want to know where they came from this may be one place to look in the future. If there is a memorial added and it is your friend or relative my loved ones are probably near by. It is surprising how many contact me about the names that have been added with more links and information. If you show interest in a name there will be more research done, so look again at it later. My renewed interest is in family history and plan to enter information mainly in the southwestern Idaho area. Will try to help you with requests, have been finding local obituaries and transcribing them from microfilm.

Please feel free to use the pictures, biographies, obituaries, etc. in any way that is helpful to you, and there is no need to give credit. Find A Grave scales down the pictures so click on them several times till they are as big as possible before saving.

Hello- I have run into a interesting conundrum with one of the memorials that you created, #132112617, for Elizabeth Van Wyngarden. At first I was just going to alert both you and the creator of memorial 70381919 that these were possible duplicates. Then I noticed that although they appear to be the same person based on family relationships, names and dates, they are actually in different cemeteries (different states even) and the photos appear to show two different stones....which of course had me completely baffled. In pondering this I thought maybe the original intention was to bury the spouses together but plans changed when the second spouse actually passed away in a different state. Anyway, I am passing this same information on the other contributor and maybe between the two of you, an explanation can be reached. If they are the same person maybe a compiling of the memorial pages can be done-- though if my thoughts on the change of burial plan are correct this obviously will cause issues in the future with others who might be trying to update missing cemetery records. Not sure how the Find A Grave people would want something like that handled. Thanks for the work you do in creating these cemetery records and best of luck on solving this one. :)

Dan - while you are looking up obits to copy look up this one. You may have to get his death certificate from the research library to get his death date. Then connect a few dots. Shades of the wild and woolly west!!!! Wilda

Please check and see if he had a wife by the name of Imogene M. Seba Schlehuber and if she might be buried there also. Any help would be appreciated.

Dan, thank you for the photo. Is this a wall niche or is there a full headstone surrounding the portion of the photo you took?
