Bio and Links
I love working on my own family tree, and now working on my husband's side.

My mother's side:

My father's side:

*****(I am sure I am missing something)*****

My husband's side:

I personally believe that if we know where we came from, it can help us understand (maybe) where will go in our lives.

I just recently volunteered myself to take photo's of other headstones. It was a blast, I introduced myself to the deceased and said, that a family member of their's sent me to say Hello, and take a picture, I know it may sounds crazy, but I took great pride in doing it. The cemetery is the one my mother is buried at, is where I started, they had 87 requests, I couldn't believe, no one had did any. So it is a work in progress for me.

I also give my permission, to anyone to use the photo's of headstones, that I post, it was my pleasure to take the photo's.

Re: James Monroe Memorial
I linked James Moore to his mother per your suggestion. His daughter, Dorothy, was my Mom's friend and was her sister-in-law for a while too. Dorothy Moore was married to my Dad's brother, George. George died in WWII.
Thank you for the information. Let me know if you want the memorial transferred to you.

RE: William Talken (Photo)
Hi Karen, I moved the photo to the correct William, I am sorry to say I did not take a picture of William Hermans headstone for you. I will return to the cemetery and take the picture for you. Do you have any other request for Our Lady of the Snows Cemetery. It's a beautiful, very well maintained cemetery. They have a huge board in front with all the names of every headstone all numbered and the rows in alphabetical order. It's a pleasure to photograph the headstones in this cemetery. Again, I apologize.

Hi Karen, OMG! I am so sorry, I don't know how I made this goof but I will take care of it Immediately. I post all the pictures from the request sheet and this is the memorial that came up when I clicked on fulfill. And it is listed as just William Talken.I'll get it straight for you. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention.

Anna Mary Hallinger Warren

I saw your posting on Anna's memorial page. Anna was my great grandmother, mother of Mildred Anna Warren, my grandmother.

You obviously know that Anna was the daughter of Mary Godfrey because you cite the Godfrey name. Are you also a Godfrey descendent? Have you ever heard of Anna's sister, Eva Budd Hallinger Bodine?? She did a lot of genealogical work and I've been trying to chase down relatives.

You can email me directly:

I made the link to George J. Schneider as you wished but now wonder if I had her maiden name incorrect as I had Schnieders?

No, I am not related to the Trowbridge family. I had created memorials for his parents and knew he existed and went looking for him. Thanks for asking, and thanks for your cooperation. Jerry
