Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began 64 years ago when I followed my mother's and grandmother's conversations as they traced relationships of their friends and family.

My memorials are family members, then relatives of relatives. My childhood piano teacher and other early settlers, friends of my parents and grandparents were next. Being from a small Nebraska town, this can be quite involved. But interesting. Very interesting.

As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble - literally - over a neglected or forgotten grave marker. I add information or create memorials for the lives I discover in this way.

I collect antique postcards (pre-1930), and one of my interests is cemetery ones. Big surprise, right? I recently started searching the regular photography section on there for cemetery photos as well. I love matching up people with the stones. There's a nice press photo of the cemetery I work the most with a big hole in the cast iron fence. I haven't decided if it's worth the money yet. I did message that company asking if they have a particular shot that appeared in the Plain Dealer in 1949. It shows my great grandpa. They have other photos of a fire at his retirement home just 2 yrs earlier, so I'm hoping they have more on file.

You added headstone photos to Edward Jenkins. You have Jenkins in your name so I'm guessing your family. Well, I saw press photograph from 1963 for sale on eBay. Numerous headstones, including the Jenkins one, were vandalized. It's an cool photo and I thought you might be interested. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1963-Press-Photo-Graves-at-the-Lone-Fir-Cemetery-/351319411324?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item51cc44ca7c
