Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a great-grandmother who started family research about 1990. I have pretty much completed the family histories of myself and my husband, but once in awhile a new relative shows up, and that is always exciting.

Find A Grave has been a valuable resource for me, and I like to contribute whenever I can, hopefully to provide information for other researchers.

I am not in a race to compile a large number of memorials. I try to find and add information that makes the memorials more meaningful, and I am always grateful for further information from contributors.

I may or may not adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines for transfers, depending on the individual circumstances. I do not understand the mind-set of those contributors who insist on following the Find A Grave "rules". If your person does not appear as a leaf on my family tree, there is a good chance that I will transfer, so ask .... However, you need to know that if you request a transfer, I will take a look at your contributor history, and if it appears all you are doing is collecting the work of other contributors, I will probably decline your request.

RE: Grave photo - mem#66312735
p.s. - I note that in the Jackson County Genealogy Library records that there is an obituary for John W. Richards in the Daily Tidings volume covering the years 1892-1899. That would seem to support the idea that John who died in 1898 is the same as John W. who has the military stone. A trip to the library will be needed.

RE: Grave photo - mem#66312735
I believe the two Richards listed are likely one and the same but will have to do a little research. In the records J.W. Richards is in City 158 and noted as being the veteran but with no dates. A John Richards is also listed but with only a death date (1898). The two are side by side (J.W. in city 158, John in city 133). A visit to the cemetery will be necessary to determine which plot has the stone and some research at the genealogy library might reveal if these are indeed the same person in the records.

There are numerous errors and duplicates in the on-line city records. I know this because I volunteered at the cemetery,worked on the complete inventory done in 2007-2008, and photographed thousands of plots there.

For now I've transferred my photos to the memorial for J.W. Richards.

RE: Memorial# 56908142 Bert F Clute
Buhl, Idaho - 15 miles outside Twin Falls, but a world away. Love it here, but am not getting involved with their cemeteries. The local one looks sterile...even flowers need to be cleaned up the minute they start to wilt. I like cemeteries where people leave smokes and beer and stuffed animals...

That is Byron Merle's marker. Hard to read, but it is the same stone as the one posted for Byron Merle.
