|Bio and Links|
I belong to the Lower Wisconsin River Genealogical and Historical Research Center out of Wauzeka, WI,|
(LWR for short, see website link below).
I have always been a graver and I have walked countless cemeteries and have studied the subject for decades. My cemetery interests started when I was maybe 8 years old if not before. I am now in my 60s and live in southwest Wisconsin.
My files are constantly growing and the work continues. I am also big into local history where I live. I will do additions, corrections, link ups and transfers upon request, but PLEASE provide memorial numbers for such services.
The only truly dead are those who have been forgotten.
Thus quoth the Raven " Nevermore!"

Would you please add this information to Laura Turk McKeown - Memorial# 68551015
McKeown is misspelled on her headstone.
People really had a hard time spelling McKeown correctly!
The two records cited below are from ancestry.com:
Laura married James McKeown 28 Mar 1889 in Grant County, WI.

James William McKeown - Obituary
James W. McKeown, 75, resident of this community all his life, died last Friday at the Mrs. Margaret Hennessy home east of Chatfield. He had been ill for some time.
Funeral services were conducted at the home Monday, Rev. William F. Coleman officiating, and burial was in the Saratoga cemetery.
James William McKeown was born here March 16, 1861. He was married to Laura Turk in Wisconsin March 16, 1888.
Surviving relatives are a daughter, Evelyn, of Cincinnati; a brother, Joseph, Wannawec, Wis., and two sisters, Mrs. Mary Watts, St. Charles, and Mrs. Rebecca Doyle, Chatfield.
There is a discrepancy with the marriage date.
But, other family documentation says he married Laura and had a daughter Evelyn.
Appreciated your help and thank you for making her headstone picture available.

Thank you for the memorial
|Wesley E. Tunks||Levi Slayback|
Thank you so much! I am a volunteer also and know how difficult it can be to find graves. This stone is in pretty good shape.

Thank you for trying to find his grave, the obituary says he is buried there. I will remove the request.
|G. Flanders||Levi Slaback/Slayback|
Thank you for your information. I have deleted the duplicate memorial. And I have liked his daughter to your memorial.
Thank you for your work.
Mr.Coberly, In searching for Myers in the Boscobel cemetery, I found a typo for: Bernard Donald Meyer #88659951.
Death Date reads: 1873 and should be 1973.
Just a little boo-boo. Thanks for all the work that you do!
Hi - I notice that you have two James Rileys at the Union Hill cemetery. I believe that they are father and son, and the white one, # 72063339
is actually James Riley born 1814. I only have a note that he died about 1887 and was married to Elizabeth Toney. I can't really read the headstone but it looks like the death date ends in a "7". This is just FYI, not sure what can be done about it. Thanks, Dee
