Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am working on geneology for my husband in the New Lisbon, Wi area with his relatives Mead ,Northcotts, and Olsons. Its been a lot of fun .

My brother has done extensive research into our family background. Our lines include Pierce, Bond, Ramey, Rolstons, Vaubels... So of course I bounce back and forth between my side and my husbands.

My interest in the cemeteries became more important, following the death of our youngst son Kris at the age of 35. He is buried in one of the little country cemeteries in our township. I have even joined our Town of Fountain Cemetery Board and am now Chairman. I like trying to make the cemeteries more accessible and attractive, for all.

And so I decided I would work with that one and other small country cemeteries in our local area. I think this is a good website as our loved ones and others should not be forgotten. One little girl was buried in our local cemetary without even a stone to mark her passing. I couldnt get that out of my mind.

I have set out to photograph the entirety of the small cemetaries in my area and so far have done the Town of Fountain cemetaries and a few outside of that. I find this very addicting!

Since connecting the present with the past is my personal goal, I will be happy to hand over any management of your family members to you. Just let me know. In return, I like to add information on my own and link them into a giant Find a Grave Family tree , so to speak.

I will also be happy to fulfill photo requests for cemeteries in Juneau or Monroe County, Wisconsin, if fairly close.

Permission is given to use any of my cemetery photos, as long as my name is on the photo credit.

Shanklin Cemetery

Below is a copy of the message that I sent to Robert. I was able to fill all of his photo request, and I thought you might be interest in the update on my postings. Yes, you may use any of the photos that I posted, and thank you for including the source of the photographs.

Happy hunting,

RE: Joseph L (M) Shanklin

I just added the remaining photographs that I took last week to the memorials in Shanklin Cemetery. The only marker that was listed in the "Cemeteries of Christian County, Kentucky" that I was not able to identify a photograph for was for George W. Smith. There was also a memorial for Mary Ann Higgins Shanklin, but she was not included in the book compiled by the Christian Society, Inc. in 2005, so there may not have been a marker erected for her or it has disappeared over time.

This cemetery is near the Christian County/Todd County line, so this is why you may find it listed in both counties.

The cemetery is located next to a residence under a canopy of trees. The marker all face east, and unfortunately, I was there in the early evening when the sun was behind the markers and it was not the optimal time to photograph. A few of the photographs that I took next to the property line I converted to black and white format to try to enhance the marker and reduce the focus of the background.

Thanks for all of your contributions to this site. Happy hunting.

RE: Macomber requests in New Lisbon
if there is no money involved then I would like to continue. i'm trying to do as much of finding out what I can about the family as I can myself. i'm sure i'll have to hire someone professional at some point, but i'll have to save over $3000.00 just to get started. I don't mean to be wishy washy about this. I really appreciate your help...colleen
