Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a genealogy junkie for the last 40+ years. Got hooked when my Dad showed me the parchment family tree that my Grandfather had created on our Swedish ancestors. My mother's side is mostly German and ?Irish/English? If anyone has a link to Butlers in Rochester, Monroe Co., NY around 1850 I would like to hear from them. Thanx to all you contributors out there!

Wrong Cemetery
The final resting place of my husband Calvin Kenneth Jaggar Memorial # 59471591 is wrong. Services were held at Lincoln Memorial Funeral Home, but he was laid to rest at Williamette National Cemetery.

RE: Wrong cemetery??
John, It could very well be. My contact, June's daughter out in OR, said the last time she was there, they had added onto the Cemetery was unclear of of what it was called. It may of changed it from Forest Lawn to the West Lawn? June's infant son, Paul Owen Pieske Find A Grave#28422223 is buried in West Lawn Memorial Park. I believe my cousin said they where buried in the same location. Thanks Dave.

Virgil James Dreiling

Someone just informed me my memorial was a duplicate of yours. I have removed mine. When I created the memorial I did look for another Virgil James Dreiling but must of overlooked your memorial.
I have used the edit tab to send you where he was born and where he was died.
Your memorial has Jim linked to a wife named Nancy Susan Dreiling (1950 - 1988). But his wife of over 60 years sent me a Christmas card about ten days ago.

Hi John,
Thank you for getting back to me. Thanks for letting me know it is okay to add my photos to memorials where you haven't uploaded photos.

I'm doing a photo project at Lincoln Memorial Park in their indoor mausoleum, taking pictures of crypts. I took a photo of Maferd Johnson's crypt and saw you had already created a memorial page, but didn't have a photo yet. I've uploaded the photos I took. If you would rather do photos yourself and would like me to delete the ones I took, please let me know.
