Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy almost as far back as I can remember, but I started actively pursuing it about five years ago. Now it's a way of life, and I am passionate about the free dissemination of genealogical info--which Find A Grave is a great resource for! I live in the Madison, Wisconsin area, but I also spend a lot of time cataloging Grant County cemeteries. But basically, anywhere I happen to travel I like to stop by and snap at least a few photos of any cemetery I come across.

I started out by uploading the pictures I'd taken of family member's graves. As I did this, I realized what a wonderful tool Find A Grave is to bring info to families free of charge. Am I related to everyone that I post memorials/pictures for? No. Do I care about memorializing these individuals for future generations? Most definitely! (Are my photos glamor shots? No, but we all have to start somewhere.)

There are many kinds of people that use Find A Grave for many different reasons. I believe we can all work together to reach our goals of documentation and memorialization. Some post information related to their family; some transcribe books of cemetery inscriptions; some photograph cemeteries full of people they are not related to, perhaps out of the belief that in death we are all equal and feel a connection to that greater family of the entire human race. Everyone's contributions are important.

I do not believe in "hoarding" memorials. If you are a family or friend of one of "my" memorials, please message me and I will be happy to transfer ownership to you (excepting my immediate family). Please use my photos wherever you would like; all I ask is that you use them with respect.

Blanche Mullin
Thanks for the information on the Calvary & Hillside Cemeteries in Platteville. I've updated Blanche Mullin's memorial to show the correct one.

You added two photos for this memorial. One of the photos is on its side. Would you please rotate it up.

Hello, I just sent you an edit request for the above memorial. Helena is listed as John W. Duve mother and she should be listed as his wife. Can you correct the memorials please? There are more details in the edit request I sent. Thank you!

Transfer Request: Cornelius

Thanks for the clarification of cemetery boundaries.

I would like to request transfer of my 2nd great grandmother Margaret Gabriel Cornelius # 138140811 to JCLA #47592976.

Thank-you again for posting the Cornelius memorials!

Thank-you so much for posting the memorials for the Cornelius family at Calvary Cemetery. We were never quite sure where in Platteville the family was buried. Casper Cornelius emigrated to Grant County, WI in 1847 from Germany.

Did you happen to see a Casper Eberhardt (1845-c1900) and his wife Clara H (Cornelius, 1851-c1939) buried nearby? Clara was eldest daughter of Margaret Gabriel Cornelius (1834-1906) and Casper Cornelius. There is another Casper M Eberhardt (d1922) buried in Calvary that was their son.

Hi Mary, I accidentally created a duplicate memorial for young Jacob. I will delete mine, but I sent you the edits to add to your memorial for him.
