Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the course of visiting cemeteries to document my own family tree, I've discovered that I can't resist the opportunity to photograph the headstones of the neighbors and friends that have joined them in life's final, eternal, graveyard shift.

Occasionally the desire to know more about my ancestors' horizontal colleagues has led me to research their history and supplement the information provided on their headstones. If you find the photos and information helpful (or in need of revision) please let me know. The feedback is appreciated, and helps me to rationalize the time I've invested in this pursuit. :)

Thank you so much for finding her Head Stone. It put me a step closer on my hunt of getting to know her. She is my Great Grandmother. I really appreciated the picture, and the time you put in to get the picture. Thanks again, Betty Glazier Whipple.

Hall Photos
I have appreciated your photo additions on Find A Grave, specifically those of Ophelia Dolly Hall, her husband Ash, and Albert G. Hall. May I have your permission to add these to my Family Tree on Any chance that you have more Hall photos? I am a descendant of Elvira L. Hall Ransom, Albert's sister.

Hi - Thanks for the follow-up. It's always nice to hear from other family researchers and people who enjoy history! Glad that you have seen the info about your relative. As I spend more time on my family research and work related research - I am amazed by how much stuff you can find in the most interesting places / websites! It takes digging! And, it always makes the effort worthwhile when I can pass it along to another person who is interested in the history. In answer to your question - I know there are distant relatives who settled in the Minnesota area - we haven't gotten that far into it yet - but I know from collecting bits and pieces along the way some of the relatives did locate to Minnesota. I would like to compare notes with you when we get to that section of our family research and would like to reach out in the near future. Armstrong is a common name - and that makes some of the research interesting but also time consuming . . so it's the process of the research that becomes enjoyable! Take care!

Robert A. Hancock

I've added two photos for the burial site of Robert A. Hancock (1915-1997). His cremains are interred in one of the columbarium at Rock Creek Cemetery, Section 1, Columbarium 2, position 20.

The photo also includes the inscription for his wife.

Hi - I came across a list / PDF document of titled, "Students of Milton Academy Who Served in the Civil War" while researching another topic. I saw your contact info on the memorial page of Elliott Ash - who was included in the PDF document that I cam across.

The text below is the info included in the PDF document:
Ash, Elliott
Residence: Janesville
Sergeant, 13th Infantry
From list of year ending July 10, 1860, p. 24
ELLIOT ASH was reared on a farm near Janesville, Wisconsin, and attended Milton Academy in 1860.
He left the farm to enlist in Company A of the 13th Wisconsin Infantry on September 9th, 1913 [sic,
probably 1860]. He became Corporal Sergeant and was mustered out November 24th, 1865. He again
took up farming near Janesville and there remained until his death.

The link to the original document is below. Thought you'd like to know about it - if you have not seen it before. It's always wonderful to come across some info about a relative!
