|Bio and Links|
|I am a Missouri girl, now residing in KY. and I have been hooked on finding my family since the 1960's but I put it on the back burner when I went to work. |
Now that I am retired, I am going full force. All the family group sheets that my family filled out all those many years ago are now prized treasures. I have Grandma's list of family members from other branches on several sheets of paper, including the back of an envelope.
I have been so fortunate to have made some lovely friends...one that I took what seems like a 100 pictures of her family at Cave Hill, one that is related to my step-mother and two who are my cousins. I count myself among the very lucky. And I have met them all except for my latest newly found cousin...located just this summer.
One of the joys of my retirement is taking pictures for others. It's a thrill to get their messages of excitement when I have found their person and many more that they didn't know were buried with that person. Find A Grave is such a wonderful website as it has brought us to appreciate those who came before and to honor them.
My families are Greenlees, Driskell, Nash, Eustace, Weese, Aldrich, Brays and many more. I have even found out that one of my 6th great grandfathers was a Seneca Indian Chief named Tanicharrison, who fought with Geo. Washington against the French, which was quite a surprise to this German Irish girl.
The pictures I take for you, belong to you. Feel free to use them however you choose. I would be proud to see one of my pictures on your family tree...so enjoy. I would be happy to transfer any of my memorials to you as long as they are not my family.

|Todd Whitesides||RE: Augustine/Augusta Boedecker|
Somebody apparently saw your earlier message about her on my wall before I deleted it, and made a memorial for her just a few days ago. It's under Annie Marie McArthur. I sent them some correctional and additional info for the memorial that I'd looked up.. It's bizarre that people want what your working on instead of pursuing their own material. There are plenty of burials in Cave Hill for people to research and document.
Good luck in Fort Wayne. I hope I get to hear about some success stories in your research when you get back. And thanks for reminding me about no requests with the Bs and the Cs. I'd forgotten that part. :)
|Todd Whitesides||Augustine/Augusta Boedecker|
In Jefferson County court records the spelling of her name is us both ways. When Augustine is used it often has Mrs. in front of it; I suppose to help avoid gender confusion from the name. It certainly didn't help with us. Would you mind to use the picture of the Augusta's marker on Augustine's memorial?
|J L||RE: John C Meranda|
Hi, I removed the picture for now based on your statement that the middle initial was a C. The picture can always be posted again if it turns out it is an O. I don't have a list of the cemetery. I saw the problem in the findagrave listing when I looked at the dates for the memorial for John C. Meranda and John O. Meranda (Jr). and saw how the dates were so close as to be transcription errors, so I assume someone created John C. Meranda from a separate cemetery canvas where someone misread the stone. I suspect the Scott County Genealogy Society has a listing.
