Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was 12 years old, my great aunt gave me a family group sheet with photos & I was hooked. That was 50 years ago & I've been working on my personal family genealogy since then.

About thirty years ago, I started updating the descendants of Azariah Crandall Jr. He died in 1825, in Clark county Indiana. He had 17 children, 11 of which were sons. In just a few years, all of Southern Indiana was littered with Crandalls. It was very difficult keeping the families straight. One of these days I hope to publish my research or at least give the information to local libraries.

The memorials, that aren't my personal relatives, come from newspapers, funeral homes, death certificates, cemetery census records & military records.I am also working on imputing a cemetery in Northern Arizona.

Otherwise, I live with all my dogs & cats in the Phoenix area. I breed Shih Tzus & do kitten rescue. Sometimes I get very busy bottle feeding or with a sick little one. Please have patience with me.

If you have a correction, addition or family links you'd like me to make, please let me know. Click on the edit tab of the memorial & make your suggestion, I'd also appreciate it, if when you post a photo on one of my memorials, that you let me know about it.

I recently had a negative encounter with a person on this site. I am no longer willing to transfer memorials I have created or receive emails. I'm really sorry about this.

I will transfer within the guidelines set out by Find A Grave though:

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer.

Hi Linda,

I noticed you posted my cousin's bio on this website on June 13, 2010, Memorial #53630014. I was looking for the exact burial site at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. How are you related to Jack? I don't recognize your name as one from our family tree. Please reply.

Military Medal
Good morning Linda: I don't know if you are somehow related to a Walter M. Crandall who is deceased, but there is his Bronze Military Medal and Certificate posted on Ebay for sale. If you are not related, but know someone who is, would you be able to let that person know of this posting on Ebay? It would be wonderful to find a "home" for this medal for a living descendant.

Thank you for any assistance that you can provide.

Wilhelmina Stewart
Linda, were you the person that updated Wilhelmina's record this year? I am brand new to find a signing up just today, but have been on the site many times. Wilhelmina is my aunt that died before my own mother was born. I was so tickled to see the update on her record. Did you get the information from the newspaper article that was attached earlier? I would love to have more information about her family etc, if you have any. My own mother passed away 50 years ago, and her family of siblings passed away within a few years after that, so I am still looking for any information I can find on the siblings and the Grandma and Grandpa that raised Wilhelmina for a short time in What Cheer Iowa. Wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your information and how much it means to me. Thank you!
