Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have walked many cemeteries in my area, large and small, and have taken thousands of photos that I am diligently working to get added to the site. It is a work in progress and one day I just might get them all posted! :)

I will be happy to add additional information or make corrections to memorials I maintain. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to send your info to me and I will update. I transfer all memorials within the four-generation rule. I do not link to "burial unknown" listings.

My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from a now inactive member. I work on these daily to update with info and add photos.

Please do not copy my photos to other websites (including Ancestry) without my permission.

RE: John Van Cleve
Thank you very much. The part that has me perplexed is, how did you even know he was buried there since it's an unmarked grave? Do you happen to have a copy of the obituary from the newspaper? I'm hoping there is more information. My e-mail is
Best Regards,

Just posted John Zalaha's obituary
His children are listed, but no step-children, listed or even mentioned.

I was wondering where you found the information on this gentlemen. He was my great grandfather and I was surprised to see the detail of your remarks. It is also odd, because he's in an unmarked grave at the cemetary. Do you have anything further on him by chance. I've had a heel of a time tracking done his ex-wife Edith

RE: Martha J. Williams
Thank you very much for taking time in following up. There is a George L. Williams (DOD 8/7/79) in Oak Ridge. Would you happen to know if he is located anywhere close to where Martha is and if there is any info in the cemetery records about him. He may be Martha's father.

Martha J. Williams
Thank you for getting back to me. A photo of the area where the records say she is located would be good to post along with a note that there is no stone.

Is there any info existing in the cemetery records? You mention she was 1 yr. 6 months. That would imply a DOB of Feb 4, 1879. Is that info in the records? Is there a burial date, parents, etc. in the cemetery records? The DOB would be good to post if it's verifiable.

Armstrong/Arnold discrepancy
Thank you for your work in finding the truth regarding this burial site belonging to Arnold not Armstrong. Sorry for your waste of time but grateful for your effort and finding.

Mabel Claybourn has been transferred to you for deletion so that it may be deleted by you and merged to preserve external links.

When processing the delete, simply provide the reason of duplicate and supply the duplicate memorial, #91067199 a,d the system will merge the data.

Many thanks for your catch. I searched only for the correct spelling at the time I added this and it is on my watch list for additional children as they are posted so that I may add them to my tree.

Mabel is not in-line but a distant cousin. Data posted is from records on my database. Any corrections or additions are most welcome.

RE: More of Mester family
Oh and I received your note on Lula remarrying. I was aware of that but haven't made links yet. Thanks for the obit - that's really nice to have. If you don't mind my asking, how does one find these older obits? Thanks again for all your help.

RE: More of Mester family
Thank you so much for doing that and making all the other changes too. I really appreciate it. My grandmother was Gladys Mester Penneman.
