Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband is so understanding as we do our genealogy, plus stopping at cemeteries to fulfill photo requests for other people.

If you find any errors, want additional information or an obituary added, please send it through the edit tab on the memorial and I will revise &/or add the information. Since many volunteers create memorials that aren't relatives, it makes it much easier if we don't have to go "hunting" for the memorial you are referring to.



A BIG thank you to all of the fellow findagravers that add my suggestions, and, especially, the obits so that many individuals can benefit from them on their search.

Please consider any pictures that I have taken as yours...I am the messenger and believe that they belong to the family.

What kind of photos may be added to a memorial page?
You may add a grave photo of the headstone or a portrait photo containing the memorialized. Do not add photos of the cemetery gate to the memorial but instead add them to the cemetery's page. If a cemetery photo has been designated by admin to serve as the default photo to appear on individual memorial pages in that cemetery, it will appear automatically. Not all cemeteries have a default photo designated. There is a limit of 5 photos for non-famous memorials that have not been sponsored. Sponsored memorials may have up to 20 photos. Any contributor can upload an appropriate photo to any memorial regardless of who manages the page. No permission from the memorial manager is needed. However, if there is already a photo of the headstone, do not add a second similar photo unless the original is of poor quality and the new photo is dramatically better. This leaves room for photos of the deceased within the five-photo limit on unsponsored memorials. Please note that it is not appropriate to delete a page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created just because you don't like a photo that someone else has added. If the photo is an appropriate addition to the memorial, it will be allowed to remain.

****If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to maintain the records please transfer your records to someone who has an active account and willing to take over the records. I am one of many willing to take over records. This really will help reduce duplicates. It would also be a good idea to leave someone instructions on how to do make these transfers should you go inactive without warning.***** Thank You

My philosophy; "No One Should Be Forgotten".

Norman S. Miles
Norman's obit was in the Omaha Daily Bee, 05 Jan 1910, Wed, Page 2. It did not mention his parents.
Connecticut, Church Record Abstracts, 1630-1920 for his son Ernest, show his parents as Samuel A. and Ellen G. (Strong.

The Baldwin Genealogy, from 1500 to 1881 p. 578
1946. "Samuel A., b. Oct 11, 1819; m. Ellen G., dau. Selah Strong, Esq., of Milford. He has ch: Norman S., m. ane with family at College Square, Page Co, Ill: Lucy D. unm. and Ernest Strong. I am under obligations to him from a transcript of Milford Church records, very useful in comparing; and under very great obligations to his father-in-law, Mr. Strong who kindly conveyed to me and introduced me to the Baldwin resident in various parts of Milford. I could have hardly got on well without his assistance, rendered by one not of the name or blood." quoted directly from the book

RE: Henry J. Myers # 145341459
All I know is that he was born ca. 1844 per the 1860 census and his stated age at enlistment, and he unsuccessfully applied for a pension in 1892. I have pulled his pension documents but failed to find anything more than that - or the Archives couldn't find it; I can't recall which.

Robert Alexander McMains
Am going in circles on this guy. Sent you a note the other day in response to the problem you reported. I then found that this memorial belongs to TLC. Wish this TLC person would just get out of Find A Grave or accept messages like everyone should, no exceptions. What do I do to report a problem with one of her memorials????

RE: Obituaries
Oh, you sent the first message after I provided the parents link to Gertrude Rose Dick Sweet (1889 - 1972) # 129145928. Her parents are:

Robert Kay Dick # 60161794
Julia Abigail "Abbie" Dancy Dick # 60161873

Julia Abigail is a great-aunt of mine through the Dancy family. Her sister Frances Sybil is my great-grandmother.

Thanks so much for any obituaries you can provide.

John R.
