Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching family genealogy for many years and also upload local cemetery registers for the cemeteries in our county.

I have no familial connection to most of the people I upload, so feel free to request transfers of your relatives. I only ask that you let me know how you're related to a family. Or if you have a decent reason, I'm good with that, too. If you'll take good care of a memorial, I have no problem transferring if you're not related.

While I have many memorials, I am not a numbers person. I would rather have family members maintain memorials.

I make updates very quickly, and usually do not reply back unless I have a question. I frequently will use the email provided in the edit to respond to a question. If your correction has not been made, please check to see if I've emailed, as I normally don't make the updates if I do not have the question answered.

**Please use the Edit feature on memorials over requesting changes in messages or sending emails. That really is the easiest and most efficient way to accomplish updates. Thanks!**

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

****If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to maintain memorials, please transfer your records to someone who has an active account and are willing to take over management of the memorials. I am one of many willing to take over records. This really will help reduce duplicates.

Right now, you can email if you have someone who has accepted stewardship over the memorials you added. Please send in their member number with your email. Feel free to contact me should you wish that someone maintain the memorials you have created. Thanks!*****

Death is only an old door
Set in a garden wall
On gentle hinges it gives, at dusk
When the thrushes call
Along the lintel are green leaves
Beyond the light lies still;
Very willing and weary feet
Go over that sill
There is nothing to trouble any heart;
Nothing to hurt at all.
Death is only a quiet door.
In an old wall.

RE: Otho Ford
Thanks for the divorce info. I actually have 4 marriages for Otho. . . the 3rd is missing from the page: Maude Rider md. 22 Jan 1924 Chicago.

His name is technically not FORD either. . . he was actually a son of Effie Harveys first marriage to Milton Conklin and Charles Ford adopted him. It looks like he had trouble keeping his marriages together. . . lol

Remember when we were kids and our parents told us no one EVER got divorced in the olden days????

Ole P Tofte (1856-1937) and Synnove Pedersdatter Tofte Moen (1843-1917)
Hello, Jonelle!
I recently discovered through family research/documentation that my great-great grandfather, Ole Pedersen Tofte (1849-1931), had an older sister, Synnove Pedersdatter (Tofte) Moen (1843-1917); however, I also discovered that he had a younger brother also named Ole Pedersen Tofte (1856-1937)! All three were the children of: Peder (hence the middle names, Pedersen and Pedersdatter - Peder's son and Peder's daughter in english!) Olsen Tofte (1816-1902) and Sogni Olsdatter (Fladvad) Tofte (1819-1897)...

I have requested an 'edit' to link these three children and their parents. Also, I have requested an 'edit' to link Ole P Tofte (1856-1937) to his wife, Marit Larsen Tofte (1863-1913).

Thank you very much for your time in creating their memorials, as well as time in updating their information! On behalf of the family, thank you again!

Very best regards to you and family,

Brandon Henderson

I declined to link Edith Stuller as Otho Ford's mother as her memorial is an illegitimate use of the 'burial unknown' designation (see the bold portion of
