When I was a little girl, my grandmother showed me a small mimeographed paperback book on our Ebling family. I was hooked!|
I've been researching about 35 years. The internet has been a god-send for us researchers. Newbies can't imagine how we did it in the old days--writing scads of letters and waiting for replies, hand-writing or typing family group sheets and trees--it was very time consuming!
About 1980, my mother, her sister and her daughter, and I went to Cedar Falls, IA on my first research trip. It was mind-blowing seeing our ancestors on the 1860 Iowa Census!
By profession I'm a bookkeeper, so working with details is my baliwick!

My sister, Deanna, has a FindAGrave #, it is 144210962. I have an update to tie her to my folks. She was cremated and placed atop her husbands tomb without a marker.

Glad to recv a message from you. I know you and Harold Cook have done a lot of Cook family research. I have a surname Thach book and I have been building on it and I have a lot of names. I even met a Gardner couple who know Jean and discovered we were 4th cousins. They even knew of and where their ggrandmother Thach, who married a Gardner was buried in Missouri. I am working on connecting all the John Thach descendants through FindAGrave.
I've changed my email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to send me any messages.

Hello! I had an interesting day yesterday at Roosevelt Memorial Park. First, I could not find a marker for Harold, so I went to the office to get help. The director, Kathleen, told me that the record showed there was supposed to be one, a government (military) marker, and he was buried to the right of Edith Graff. But there is no marker on the right side of Edith. So one of the workers came out with a shovel. He went down about 10 inches and did not strike a marker.
Back at the office, Kathleen had pulled the original file. There is a copy of a letter in the file to the family who ordered the marker. Apparently, when the headstone arrived, it had the wrong year of death on it.
Now the plot thickens, because there is no evidence in the file that the stone, with wrong information, was ever set, or returned to the maker, or a new one was ordered. It just doesn't say what happened next.
Kathleen told me that the family should contact her about this, but I'm not sure how they can rectify the problem. Cemeteries are not responsible for the errors of an engraver, The one thing she indicated was that Harold died in 1959, and the marker said 1949.
If you are close family and would like something done about this, please contact Kathleen for further information. In the meantime, I am adding a photo of the area, showing where Harold's grave is.
I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome. I am always disappointed when there is no marker.

You are welcome. Leadville does get very cold and snowy but we camp up there in the summer so I was able to get a few photos for people, thankfully, while I was up there. Take care
