I have been doing genealogy for about 25 years, originally to help my brother out. He passed away ten years ago. I am retired and am carrying on his legacy. It is amazing how much time I spend on the computer every day doing research.|
I grew up in Kansas and moved to California around 1958 and have lived here ever since. My ancestry research started out mostly Swedish with some Norwegian. Now with over 6,000 people later, it includes many nationalities including Irish and English and Canadian. I am mostly focused on Kansas (around Vilas and Chanute, where my family grew up), and also Missouri, Nebraska, California, Oregon, Washington and Arizona.
My Swedish ancestors came over mostly around the 1870's from the mainland and the Island of Gotland and then settled in Kansas. My records go back to the 1500's.
My goal in Find-A-Grave is to provide as much information on a memorial as possible for the benefit of others. I use Ancestry.com daily for research and have accumulated a lot of solid info. I belong to a genealogy club of about 140 people and continue to improve my knowledge and skills.

I've got maybe 130 or so more to add for Brantford Covenant, and I'll whittle away at them over the next week or so.

|SJ Oregon||RE: Johanne Johnson|
You're welcome; I always like being able to fulfill a request.
I have lots more to add for Brantford Convenant, and I'll get to them soon.

Thank You for all help and I am aware there is no record of her being buried here. I had a lady take picture of Noble Johnson grave and if you look at the pictures you will see that his lot is two lots and I beleive she in in the lot next to him. Noble Johnson owns this area were his son and his son wife are also buried as well as the lots on the other side of this area. His son is Ezra Johnson and his wife is Emeline SEARS JOHNSON who is my great aunt. This lady also got him to admit that it could of been an mistake and she was not recorded on the cemetery records. I will add what you sent me to her Memorial.

Thanks so much for the pictures!!I really appricate you doing that for me!
Thanks for adding the pictures to the memorial. I never heard the other person that said she had taken the pictures. Your's turned out great. Have a great evening.
I am removing my request for pictures in the Lincoln cemtery. A little lady sent me pictures today and was new and didn't know how or what to do with them. She send them to me direct. I will contact her and have her post them to the memorial. She will catch on quick. Sounds like the first time she has done this. Thank you for your kind offer to aquire the pictures. If they are not readable, I will repost a request, one looks like the dates may be cut off.
Have a wonderful day.

Yes, please post a picture so I can see it. I will add information I can gather from it. Thanks for doing this. I will post a request for picture with your name to claim. If someone claims it first please post and I will notify that you had already taken the picture.
Thanks so much.

Hello! I have claimed your photo request. I don't know if you remember me, but I tried last summer to find her for you. She is not buried next to her husband (there was only a William Hanson next to him). The cemetery staff tried several ways of spelling her name, and even tried looking under her middle name, and still came up with nothing. Do you think she could be buried under a different last name?
Hi...Thank-you for the picture of Frank & Minnie's stone....I greatly appreciate you taking time to fulfill my request...and so fast too!!
