Bio and Links
Bio Photo In my pre-teen years, my grandmother and I would go for walks in the cemetery close to her home. It was a history lesson for me as she would tell me about the lives of her family and friends buried there.
My goal is to link as many memorials as I can and provide pictures to help future generations find their ancestors. If you find any mistakes please Email me and I will make corrections.

Basil A Martin
You put a photo on this memorial and I was hoping you could add some information? Who are Basil's parents and family? I have been doing research on my Martin family and Basil's date of birth matches an unnamed baby boy born to an aunt and uncle of mine. Can you help?

Hi Mike,
do you have any information about children of Frank and Anna Marie Zimmermann ? Her mother is a member of my Krull family.
Greetings from Hamburg

RE: Marcia Dancey Ketcham
Good work! I research old photos that are posted online and add them on Find a Grave whenever I can make a match.

Memorial 66243234
The memorial of Gladys Arlene Cotner has a photo that you added. Unfortunately the gravestone states "Daughter of Truman & Maxine Brown, 1941," which is incorrect. I'm aware how hard many work to improve Findagrave and it's no easy task to add photos. We all make mistakes. Would you kindly correct this one. Thanks.

James Ford, England > IN, Nurseryman
My family is linked to the James Ford family of Princeton, IN, who owned property in the 1st Ward of that city in the 1880's and I believe operated a nursery there. His daughter married into my Mills family. Byron Mills, my fourth great uncle, was a lumber mill operator and lived next to the Fords in NE Princeton during that time period. His first cousin, George W. Mills, is the one who married James Ford's daughter, Mary Anna. I'd like to know more about that family and your connection to it, if you'd be so kind as to contact me by e-mail at doyle_cm at Thank you kindly!

Gardner Pictures
I don't know if your related to the Gardner's that you posted pictures of, but thank you. I'm researching my Gardner brick wall and the resemblance between my Gardner family and the pictures you posted have given me a nice lead to look into.

Anna C Mader (1877-1957)
Hello Mike,

Thank you for the work you do on Find A Grave. Families both present and future will thank you too.

I have Mrs. Mader's maiden name listed as Gardner but I have no citations to verify that. Do you have any idea if that is correct?

I'm putting together a tree of the Schwieterman family in memory of my friend David Urban Schwieterman (1929-2015). Mrs. Mader is a part of that tree. I am also hoping you might grant permission for me to use the portrait of Mrs. Mader that you added to her Find A Grave memorial located at

I wish to use the portrait in the Schwieterman tree published at and I will attribute your Find A Grave addition as my source if you do grant permission.

Best Regards, Dane Dicke
