Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sharol (Heintzelman) Molland and I was born in Coquille, Oregon the day Pearl Harbor was bombed. My father and stepfather were both in the Army during WWII. I would like to find out if there is a possible genealogy link to General Samuel Peter Heintzelman, who fought in the Civil War.

My interest in genealogy began about three years ago and somehow I ended up doing "Find a Grave" about a year or so ago. I am happy to help find relatives, if they are buried near to me. My husband has been ill so I don't travel too far away.

My brother and I would like to locate relatives buried in the midwest. We have discovered that we have our roots for the Heintzelman and Shere families in northern Illinois (Tampico and Joliet), and the Monica family in Michigan (Newberry area) and Wisconsin (Egg Harbor). We have found some information about the Page family in the Nebraska and Oklahoma area, however, we are unsure of where they originated from. Some of our family members ended up in Oregon, where we were born.

Since I've gotten older, I have found a walk in a cemetery to be rather comforting and peaceful. For every stone you see, there is a story of a life and experiences. I find a special empathy and interest in those that fought in wars and children lost too soon.

Olson Edits
Thank you for taking care of all the edits I recently submitted for The Olson brothers and sister. I think we finally have the siblings all together which should help some others in the research of graves and their history.

RE: Martin Moen
I guess I rather just let it be. I don't live up home anymore and can't go to Eleva to see if there is a different Moen plot there. I don't feel comfortable deleting without verification and I have already taken over maintenance of the correct Moen's in Strum. Thanks for all you do. I have found a lot of good information via findagrave. I use it more as a tool that can point me in the correct direction and then get verification.

Thank you,

Martin Moen
The record of Martin Moen in Eleva shows that it was created by you. I just wanted to pass information onto you that Martin is my Great Grandfather and he is actually buried in Strum, Wisconsin. The picture you have posted of his headstone is actually "Not" located in the Eleva cemetery but in the Strum St Pauls cemetery. I just wanted you to know... maybe you want to fix this. I don't know if there is another Martin Moen buried in Eleva and this picture was posted accidently on this site or where the mix up is. There were two created for Martin and Mina both in Eleva and Strum. Both are buried in Strum and I am managing their sites. The Eleva ones are either someone elses or accidently created under Eleva. Thank you.

RE: Laura Brush Kenyon request
The Laura Brush Kenyon request was fulfilled. I called the cemetery this morning. Apparently there are a number of Kenyon burials in the cemetery, but they do not have a listing of them. Someone has to walk the cemetery to find them.

If you frequent the cemetery, I am interested in any Kenyons who are buried there. Currently, only three are listed on FindAGrave.

RE: Swinney's
I lived right next to them until I moved away in 1987. The red house on the corner - 14 S Dean. :)

Hi Sharol,

I was in Coquille this past week and took pictures of Leroy & Gertrude Swinney's headstones. You have their burial's listed in the Coquille Pioneer Cemetery but they are actually buried in the Masonic Cemetery, which is right next to it.

Gertrude Swinney #70886434
Leroy Swinney #70886422

Thank you
