Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been in genealogy a short time, and find it very interesting. I am trying to find more details and more names, and the searching is half the fun! (Kinda like putting together a Jigsaw Puzzle.) Some of the surnames I am interested in are Williams, Moran, Schmedel, Otto, Bender, Strzyzewski, Cesarz, Christensen, Langendorf, (and countless others). I am starting a search on Dorfmeister, and Grove, of which I know I am related, but don't have much in the way of connections yet.

I have my tree started at Please feel free to stop over and say hello, and if you would like to share any tips, and family branches, that would be great! I would love to hear from you.

I wanted to thank everyone for adding virtual flowers to all my friends, family, and interments, (even the family and friends that I did not add, but are here). I have been trying to return the good gesture, but if I haven't gotten to some or all of your interments, please be patient. I think it's a wonderful thing to give flowers to someone, even if it's virtually!

Here is the link to my Best Friend, and Grandmother: Betty Christensen

I'd love to exchange data. Are you closely related to Wilmer Atkinson Tillinghast? If so, we're relatively close cousins (Wilmer, Sr. was my great-grandfather; Wilmer, Jr. of course was my great-uncle). If you're a Tillinghast but not closely related to Wilmer, I'm pretty sure we're still cousins! Feel free to email tctill @

Elizabeth Farrell Woodlawn cemetery NY
Do you have any more information on her? I was looking at an online source to see if records for her being there existed before I went up to the office to find plot information. This is a very large cemetery. As of this point, no record of her being there is on line. I also saw that she died in CA. Perhaps there is another woodlawn cemetery she is buried in? If she is, by your record, indeed in this cemetery I will do my best to locate her.

RE: Tonkin Surname
Dawn; Thank you for your message. My wife's maiden name was Snover. Rollin 53841520 & Dorothy 53841685 Tonkin were her Uncle & Aunt. All the other Tonkin's I made memorials for probably related to them in some way. I did create a brief family history so if you have any questions feel free to ask. Regards...Don Short

RE: James and Mary Jane Ross
Thanks. I'm seeing if I can get the other entry for Mary Jane deleted. We'll see how that goes.

James and Mary Jane Ross
Hi Dawn -- There are duplicate records for James in Greenwood Cemetery (122047453 and 122047457). Could you delete one of those? There are also duplicates for Mary Jane (54770922 and 122047069), but this situation is a bit trickier to resolve. You own only the latter entry. The other entry was done earlier, so from that perspective you should probably delete yours. However, your information is more complete, so I'd hate to see that lost. How do you want to proceed on this one?

RE: Caroline Christensen
No problem, the cemetery is only 5 miles from our farm, in the closest town that I go to 3 times a week.

I added a better photo of Frank's info on the monument since it was not in shade this morning.

Caroline Christensen
Hi Dawn, I put several photos of where Caroline is buried although there is no longer a stone. According to cemetery files she is buried next to Andrew.
