Bio Photo Newly updated July 14, 2015
Because it is against Find A Grave policy, I will no longer post photos of individuals unless I personally have the photos (ex: family). I will also not post total obituaries that include survivors unless I am contacted by a family member of the deceased. I will include minimal information which was printed with the obituary and will post the link where the obituary can be found.


As far as myself, most of my recent ancestors are from the Mound City / Pulaski County area in Illinois, the St. Louis Missouri area (and further south) near Mississippi Co. Missouri. That is the areas where the Atkinson's are mostly from.

The Weber side of my family are from the Illinois area also, however I have recently traced my great-great-great grandparents back to Alsace-Lorraine which is very exciting, however making it complicated to get further back.

Along with the Atkinsons and Weber (aka Webber's), other surnames include Shelly, Crittendon, and Bunch.

I just wanted to let you know that there was a typo in the obituary from the funeral home which has since been corrected. It originally said he received the Global War OF Terrorism Service Medal. It should be the Global War ON Terrorism Service Medal. Many news sources have copied the incorrect word.

RE: Carson Holmquist
No thanks necessary - it is a privilege to do so. My father was a Marine KIA. In my book, this is family.

Living Memorials
I agree but I guess admin does not because if someone creates a memorial and the person is still living and they pass away six years later and you create a memorial; admin will merge it with the one created six years before they died and I think that is wrong to give them credit for creating a living memorial.

I would think they would not reward someone for doing something against the site's guidelines.

It's not about the numbers for me but I do believe in following the site's guidelines.

I appreciate it when people tell it like it is on their profile page and do not coat it with sugar.

Officer Terrence Green
Police Officer Terence Green was shot and killed from ambush as he and other officers responded to reports of shots fired inside a house near the intersection of Chastain Way and Parks Trail at approximately 1:00 am.

The subject who lived in the home was known to police through frequent contacts with the department. Responding officers were unable to locate him inside the home and began searching the neighborhood after receiving additional calls stating the man was attempting to get into nearby homes.

As officers checked the area the man opened fire on them from a concealed position in the dark and fog. Officer Green was struck in the back of the head and another officer's duty belt and radio was struck as they attempted to seek cover. Other officers returned fired, wounding the man, and then took him into custody.

Officer Green was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds a short time later.

Officer Green had served with the Fulton County Police Department for 22 years.

Mark E. Hunt
I worked with Officer Hunt @ VIA Metro Transit before he became a police officer. Mark was a genuinely good guy. Would you please link his memorial with his mother's (18981651)? Thanks!

rosemary's memorial.
you had left her flowers on it a couple days after I made it. I had made it for Karen. I was able to sort of transfer Karen and Paul's flowers to your memorial before deleting mine. I really did not want Karen's message to be lost. it is all right everything worked out ok

Hi! Thanks for your quick work.

I think her name was Mary Anna Elizabeth (Engemann) Bruckerhoff...I have her birth as May 2, 1886, but this date on the memorial or tombstone will be okay.
Birth: Apr. 27, 1886
Death: Jan. 14, 1926

Note: w/o John

Mount Hope Cemetery

Plot: Row 53, Stone 28

That's what FindAGrave has for her.
Thanks for working on this memorial. Yes, I will be happy to have Willie's memorial transferred to my care.
