Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is just another way that working together we can accomplish a great deal in documenting the history of many.

Special thanks to a number of people who have contributed a great deal of information and/or pictures that I've posted to memorials in Wisconsin; Kentucky; and Ron and Ann Miller: Hillside Cemetery, North Loup, Valley, Nebraska. I requested and was given permission by Ron and Ann to add specific pictures from their Gallery.

Whenever I visit graves online, I like to leave a flower so that friends and family of the deceased will know that their loved one was thought of that day. Most of these people are not related to me in any way.

Infant Finch
Twila, this baby was my aunt. I had never any idea that anyone else would be interested in making a memorial for her. Or hardly even knew of her in the first place. Ann

Good evening,Twila-
Just wanted to let you know that I added a new photo for Gerard Borgyon WITHOUT a worm on it. Quite honestly, I did not notice the worm crawling on the stone when I took it and saw it when I added the photo to Gerard's memorial. Mother nature or not - just thought he deserved a "clean" stone!

Updated Clement Family book
The Clement Family book has been updated for the Ben Clement part of the family. I will copy that part of the new book and send you a copy of that section. Deb Clement Auch did this update and I understood her to say the rest of the sections for other parts of the family in Canada and New Zealand were still being worked on with what ever information she had received. I hope the entire book can be made available in digital form at some point in the future. If you are still interested in a copy, please provide your address and I will get a copy in the mail within a few days.

RE: Albert Bernhard Knudsen
Twila, Thank you so much for honoring this WWII veteran and making sure his service and sacrifice is remembered. My thinking is much the same as yours. If I go to a cemetery, I make a point to check the photo requests and try to fulfill them. I also look for military markers to make sure the veterans have a Memorial page.

I am not related to Mr. Knudsen. I do volunteer work for the 99th Infantry Battalion (Sep) WWII Educational Foundation. It would be best for management of his Memorial to be passed on to a relative. However, I would be happy to take over management until it can be passed on to his family.

Sincerely, Tom H.

RE: Romanah Craft Sammis
I might not have said it very well!
Romanah Craft (Sammis) (my great aunt) was born in 1865.
Ethel Romanah Lovejoy (Beaver) (my grandmother) was born in 1884.
Ethel's middle name comes from her mother's sister, Romanah Craft (Sammis). Ethel's mother was Love Craft (Lovejoy).
They share the name of Romanah, which is very unusual.

Good luck rebuilding your tree. What a bummer. On the positive side, maybe you'll catch some inadvertent errors.

RE: Romanah Craft Sammis
Hi Twila! Long time no see. I'm so sorry about your Family Tree Maker problem. That is no fun at all!

I think what is going on with the confusion is that my grandmother, Ethel Romanah Lovejoy Beaver, was born in 1884. Her middle name comes from her mother's sister, Romanah Craft Sammis. Ethel's mother's maiden name was Love Craft, and Romanah Craft was her sister. So, Ethel's middle name was in honor of her Aunt Romanah. Romanah is such an unusual name. In fact, just this morning I was wondering where it originally came from. My research into the Crafts is rather meager at this point. I know so much more about the Lovejoys!

I hope that clears it up. Let me know if it doesn't or if I can help in any other way.
