Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of the best features of Find A Grave is that it provides a forum where years of genealogical research can be shared with others. Please let me know if you have additional biographical or statistical information for any of my memorials, as it is always welcome. The wealth of knowledge that others have sent to me through Find A Grave is astounding.

If you are aware of links for parents and/or spouses that I have not yet added, I would appreciate it if you would use the edit tab to leave the name and memorial number of the person or people who should be linked.

Thanks to all those who have generously shared your family stories and beautiful photos with me. I sincerely appreciate being allowed to add them to the memorials for your loved ones. The pictures and studio portraits that for years have been carefully preserved in family photo albums, add such a wonderful dimension to Find A Grave. They help create a memorial tribute that is all the more special and meaningful.

Before asking for a memorial transfer, please determine whether or not this is really necessary. Transfers of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections even if you are not the memorial manager. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a transfer request. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire family trees.

Transfers will only be considered if they comply strictly with Find A Grave guidelines. You must state your exact relationship to the deceased. People who request transfers and then fail to improve and maintain the memorial are certainly not honoring the memory of their family member.

Bulk surname transfers will not be considered under any circumstances.

Unless otherwise noted, all bios on my memorials were researched and written by me. Post-1922 verbatim obituaries have not been included in order to avoid copyright violations.

I have put a lot of time and effort into my memorials on Find A Grave. I strive to make sure that the information on them is as accurate as possible, but I am realistic and know that mistakes do happen. Please use the edit tab to leave a message regarding any errors or omissions that need to be corrected.

By working together, we can continue to build Find A Grave into a better and better site!


Note: 30 Sep 2013 marked a very sad day for all Find A Grave contributors when the founder of this website sold us out to

I will continue to add to and maintain my memorials as long as Find A Grave remains a completely free website, open to all without charge.

RE: Roy Dudley
We *think* she is still alive. I have seen no record of her death in doing a search. Sorry I can't be more definite. Pam

RE: Roy Dudley
Looks like she deleted her memorial and took the photo with her. Wow.

I just put in a request for another photo. Hopefully it will be quick because the military cemeteries are pretty well followed.
Fingers crossed. Thanks, Pam

Hello Lynn,

I need to know if you are related to the Jacobs you have memorials for. My Great grandmother was Laura Jacobs from this family and this family has been hard to find. I would like to hear from you please.

Your Find A Grave Memorial# 64251861 has no burial location. He is my cousin, and he is buried at:

Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery
St. Louis County
Missouri, USA

Find A Grave Memorial# 154241793 duplicated you and has his monument picture. Could you possibly merge them, or maybe she would move her photo over to yours and delete her memorial. Thought you would want to know. Thanks, Pam

Lewis/Louis T. Ingersoll
I show the following marriage of Charles Wesley Ingersoll to Louisa Sisko (sic-Sisco), Aug 16, 1855, Calhoun Co., Il. , V. 15, lic. 710.
The 1860 Census Richwood Pct., P.O. Monterey, Calhoun Co., Ill. household 370; Chl. Ingersoll, age 25, farmer, b. Illinois; wife Louisa, age 19, b. Ohio; son Lewis, age 8, b. Illinois and Peter Ayers, 60, b. Ireland. The 1870 Census Richwood Pct., Calhoun Co., Illinois : Cheslea Twichell, 66, b. N.Y., wife Candace C., 48, b. N.Y.; Carleton C. Twichell, 17, b. Ill; Oscar Twichell, 14, b. Ill. ; Louis Ingersoll, 13, b. Ill.; & Joseph Ingersoll, 10, b. Ill.
Charles Wesley Ingersoll and Louisa Sisco, separted in Mar. 1863, and divorced in May 1863, the children were awarded to the father, who was a son of John Wesley Ingersoll and Elvira Candace (Squier). She married (2) Chesley Wheeler Twichell, and raised the two boys, Lewis and Joseph C. Ingersoll. After Charles W. Ingersoll and Louis divorced, she left Ill. and took Joseph with her and the family in Ill. came after her and took Jospeh back. Louisa was a dau. of Horace Sisco & Mary Ann Cross, who married in 1839 in Franklin Co., OH. Louisa married (2) James M. Gibby in Calhoun Co., Il. It appears to me that someone changed Louisa's surname, on Lewis' death cert. because they did not want to acknowledge her.

Thank you for your consideration.

RE: William O'Neil
I always look at the informant on the death certificate to see if the info is going to be credible. In this case, it was someone at the hospital who didn't know him like a family member would. If a father is giving info on a child, he usually can name the birthday but not get the year right. A second wife usually won't know the maiden name of her husband's mother, and some families just don't pass a lot of info down the pike to their kids. So I've learned that the only thing you can usually trust on a death certificate is the date of death and you need other sources to find out the truth or to back up all the other lines on the form. I always make sure I add my research findings to my bio because you know there are people who have gotten wrong info passed down in their families and refuse to believe something even when it is in black and white. I tried to get one contributor to link a wife to a man who turned out to be her great grandfather and she refused because no one had ever known he was married before, even though the document proved he had. So Lynn, thanks for writing and considering what I found on William O'Neil to be credible. :)
