Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am sill chugging along picking at them.
Please no more rude messages, or I will have to fix it that no messages can be left..

Thanks for all your support!!! This is a very important site to keep active, not hate full. For the transfers,,,,I really want to go thru some emails before transfers are done. And YES I have done transfers, and some have been transferred to me. So the numbers will be off a bit (how rude to some of you few, uggg)

I do not do edits every day. But I do try to get to them every now and then. When a marker only has one date on it, that does not always mean that they were born and died on the same day. (just a small FYI)

Yes I lost approx. 6000 photos of Fairlawn and other cemeteries that were taken about March 2009 when my computer crashed. It kills me that they are lost. I have not been back to that cemetery since I had a falling out with a groundskeeper. And now years later I have health issues that keep me from walking cemeteries like I used to.
June 2015

I have gotten a bit behind since Oct, I had emergency surg, family member had a stroke then I lost a family member. Getting back in the swing may take a bit. I will try to do edits this week.

I have had another death in the family that is very close to my heart. 2 deaths in 6 weeks will put a toll on you. I am still crying daily and do apologize for any delays. I do want to mention that some transfers are not complete due to they may be in my tree and at this time with a toddler running around and everything else going on I am not up doing massive research at this time.
Again I am sorry for any delays. I have done edits here and there. If an edit was not done I may think there is other info.
All edits are done to date. Still working on messages.

A few of my family names are Nelson, Carlson, Hornbaker, Black, Avitts, Montgomery, Schandorff, Edenstrom, Richards, Deal, Spracklen, Buck, Helms, Linden, Petersen, Peterson, Rasmussen, Wallis, Wilcox, Wilson, Lewis & many many others.

And in May we now have the 4th grandchild.

Erma L. Evans
I am the granddaughter of Erma L. Evans. Yes, she was married to John Shinn, my grandfather. Erma had three sons: John Jr., Clarence and Wayne. Clarence was my father. John Sr. remarried after Erma's death. Do you have the month and day Erma died? Also, I think her middle name was Lovey, not Leonard. I recall seeing her birth certificate somewhere. Of course, I never knew her, but heard about her all my life. I appreciate any info you can send me. Thanks.

Would you please consider transferring Mary O. Smith Fry #32789137 to me. She is my 2nd great grandmother on my mother's side of the family. Every year we put flowers on her grave for Memorial Day.

You have had so much pain and sadness in your life these past years. I hope the new grandchild brings you some joy.

Thank you. Contributor Lawson1889 #47746535.

The stone picture is not Janet's? Do you have a picture or know what is on her gravestone. She was born 1877 in Kansas and died in Oklahoma City.
She was married but Divorced by 1925.
Her mother is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery Kansas City , KS. Lucinda Mentz Drew Watkins.

Sister Mary Ambrose Massoth
Hello. I have no wish to add frustration to your day. I so appreciate the work you and others do documenting graves. I find this invaluable and I do want you to know, you are (again) appreciated.

Sister Mary Ambrose Massoth is my mother's cousin and I have been researching her for the family tree. I have two different dates of death and thought I would simply look at her grave stone to verify the correct date. However, when I access her name, I get a marker for Sister Mason.

I read through your notes and I quite understand if the picture for her grave is lost.

I guess I could write to the cemetery directly to research this, or perhaps the mother house of her order.

If indeed the picture of her grave is lost, I will proceed accordingly.

Again, thank you for your work.

I don't usually log on so I didn't get your message in '09.
I logged in because my mother died in Sept. so I am trying to link her with her parents.

Take care

Hi there:

Thanks very much for adding records to F-A-G. The F-A-G rules state that if the last name is not known, the word "Unknown" should go in that field. I submitted corrections for the memorials to follow these rules. If you go to my profile, I have links to the F-A-G forums where the curators explain in more detail the guidelines about religious memorials.

Thank you!

Sorry for all your losses. PERSERVERANCE will see you past it. A friendly suggestion on one of your people you have listed is you might want to check the spelling on Carrie Carroll's name. It should read Carrie Asher Carroll not Carrie Archer Carroll. I know about slip of the fingers on the keyboard.
