Bio and Links
Bio Photo I kept putting this short bio off, but after doing photo requests for people and "meeting them" through their bios, I decided it was time. I am a retired school teacher who loves doing genealogy work and exploring cemeteries. I love the concept of Find A Grave where people in different areas are so willing to help each other with photos. When my husband and I are fulfilling photo requests, we sometimes add more stones to a cemetery. I am always willing to "give these up" to family members who can add more information. Just ask.

RE: Dool Headstones
Mary Dool's parents were Thomas Dool & Mary Dool nee Bell. They are buried there too, and you took a photo of their headstone as well. Again, thank you so much!

RE: DOOLs in Graceland
Mary E. was the daughter of Thomas and Mary, shown in the 1900 census. There was one other daughter, Margaret, born about 1866, married to W. J. Martin. Haven't yet found her yet.

RE: DOOLs in Graceland
Many thanks for the heads-up. This has led to some connections I did not have. I'm grateful for your help.

RE: John J. HALLER in Litchfield, NE Cemetery
Hi, Barbara! I am a Sherman County genealogist linking everybody in that county - I have photographed all the cemeteries - am finishing Evergreen now, then will work on Litchfield! I linked John to his parents, but did not work on rest of the Haller family as there are many buried there! if you can be patient, the entire family will be done within the next 6 months - I do not know about his occupation, BUT, one of my other projects is adding obits to findagrave, so hopefully I will come across his!! :) k
