Bio and Links
Bio Photo I l♥ve walking through cemeteries & taking photo's. I enjoy researching my family tree & helping others with theirs.

No longer having desktop internet I find it tedious work to answer request right away from a cell phone. It may take me a long time before updating pages or transferring memorials over BUT I do eventually answer any & all requests and enjoy adding to bios.

If anyone would like family or close friends to be transferred over to you please let me know. I'd be more than happy to have someone I entered in to be maintained by loved ones. ☺

I occasionally research additional information for the memorials I've added to link them to their family and to help relatives who are searching for them. This may include obituaries, census, death, marriage & birth records as well as military records. If you'd like to double check any of my researched information below is a list of sources used.

Richard L. James Sr. (Ground Mound Cementary)
Just wanted to say Thank You for cleaning and posting my dads head stone. It was so shinny and beautiful. I live in Kansas so am unable to care for it. Was very thankful to find this site. Most sites want credit cards which I don't have. Just found this looking at Ground Mound stuff which we hope to visit this summer. Thanks again for caring for my Father.

Find A Grave Memorial# 25379418
Would you please release this grave site to me. This is my brother. He is incorrectly linked as a child to John Thomas Pollick and Julia Ann Sullens Pollick (actually his great-grandparents). I would like to add his currect bio information.

RE: Misleading Amelia Jaresh info
You're right I'll at least correct it in Charles Jaresh Sr's bio. Anyone who sees the link that was created from Amelia to Charles Sr would see the mistake being corrected on Charles Sr's page.
Thank You!

Amelia Lawrence Jaresh misinfo
Thank you for the information you've collected about my gr-grandfather, Charles Jaresh Sr. I appreciate having his memorial transferred over to me. Long ago I contacted the manager of Amelia Jaresh's memorial about correcting the mistake made assuming my gr-grandfather, Charles Jaresh Sr. was her husband. I never received a reply back. Right family wrong husband! LOL

Amelia's husband, Charley Jr Jaresh died some years after his wife, Amelia, in Oakland, CA (1930s.) There were no children! I can see where the wrong assumptions were made without documentation or realistically looking at the different dates to put it all into perspective. Only so much we can do to correct mistakes I guess! Thank You Again!

Hello: The beautiful memorial you created for my mother in 2006 was the first time I "accidentally" discovered Find A Grave. That led me to hours and hours of my own work here, very much enriching my life and the lives of many of my friends and family. Thank you so much for all you do. Happy Mothers Day.

Cronkrite burials
Herman Clayton Cronkrite's mother, Nancy Hughson died somewhere between 1881, Cardwell, Ontario and Tacoma (1900). I note from Find A Grave that Herman's father, James and his brothers Oliver and George are also buried in Tacoma. Is there any chance that a record can be found for Nancy Hughson / Cronkrite?
Nancy was an older sister to my great grandmother Eliza Hughson.
