Bio and Links
Bio Photo Although I started gathering genealogy data in junior high school, interviewed many older family members in the early 1980's, started using Legacy software a decade ago, I was only able to seriously begin to organize it all after the last of our seven children graduated from high school in 2011. I discovered Find a Grave in early 2012 and found it a tremendous resource but I was too busy organizing the mountain of data I had to post anything myself even though I had accumulated maybe a few hundred photos of family grave stones.
At the beginning of 2013 I was finally able to begin sharing my data more broadly and become a contributor. Almost immediately I discovered how much fun it was so it will be a long term goal to be sure there is a memorial for most of the extended family of my kids.
I'm hoping that having my name on a memorial will lead to contacts from others who have some connection to them so please send me a note.
Although most everyone I maintain will be family members that I'd like to keep not all are and I'd love to transfer them to someone who knew them so just ask using the Edit - Suggest a Correction link.
My virtual cemeteries are set up to include the memorials by line for my kids four grandparents.

duplicate spouses - status
Even though their memorials predated yours, they have made some unselfish decisions. See the status so far.

The following duplicate memorial was graciously deleted by Linda. So now there is only a duplicate memorial for Herman.

Deleted by Linda.

The following duplicate memorial was voluntarily transferred to me by LoNe Searcher. However since it was transferred to me I can not delete it.
So I am transferring it back to LoNe Searcher for him to delete. That will leave two remaining memorials to edit and update.

Thank you for posting these memorials along with the photos. They are my step-cousins. I was really searching for a memorial/burial of their father, Bishop Ira Nissley, who died at his home in Kalona, Iowa. I was hoping he was buried near his daughters but I will continue to search. Thanks again for your contributions to Find A Grave.

Memorial# 131648012 & all Miller, Hochstetler & Stutzman. I was looking at Peter Miller Cemetery since that is one I have never been to. Nearly all Amish in Kalona area are relatives.

Hey Terry
I see you have a lot of photos of my distant relatives. May I use them in my family tree? Do you ever hear from Bruce T?

You placed a photo for a Verna Miller Weaver on the memorial for Michael David Israel # 116745421

Would you please remove the photo?

Thank you.
