Bio and Links
Bio Photo Although I grew up on the west coast, I am now living in Michigan. I am a busy mother of two beautiful and very active girls. In my "spare time" I love to research family history among other things.

My mother is an avid historian too, so I concentrate mostly on my paternal lines. The names I am currently working on are Upthagrove, Moss, Beers, Witters, Catlett, Meals, and Curtis. I have also done extensive work in Portage County, Wisconsin. If you have ancestry there, contact me!! We are probably related :)

PS. My husband and I have become so hopelessly addicted to this site that we have "adopted" a local cemetery to do look-ups and photos. Is it strange that our daughters are learning how to read from epitaphs?

UPDATE: I feel it necessary to add that I will be happy to edit memorials I manage, but ONLY if you use the EDIT BUTTON on the memorial page.

Chauncey Doty
Chauncey Doty was married to Sarah Upthagrove. Do you know where Chauncey Doty was buried? We are doing our Doty family tree and need help. We thank you in advance for any information you can forward to us.

Annie Eddy Tree #92455196
I found Annie Eddy Tree's info on Find A Grave. I see that you entered it a few years ago. Annie was my great grandmother, Celinda Rood's child from her first marriage to Wallace Irvin/Irving. I have been trying to find info on Wallace Irvin for many years. Are you related to the family? Any info that you have will be much appreciated.

Ann Margaret Meals Daubenspeck Memorial # 77375049
I have been researching the MEALS family line as it connects to my Daubenspeck line and I noticed that John David Hoover (1830 - 1903) is shown as a child to Ann Margaret Meals Daubenspeck, but I show that he is a grandchild. Am I wrong? Please reply via as I rarely logon to Find-A-Grave. Thank you, Patrick J. Henry

Meals Beers
Did you notice there is a Meals grave and a Beers grave in Walnut Hill? There are only those two listed in the cemetery burial book.

Diwoky edits
I do not know the Diwoky family. If you are related and want to manage the memorials I created, I will gladly transfer them to you.

Grace L. Moss Buffum
Some time ago you submitted information for Grace stating that it was from family records, census, obituaries, etc and that you were a relation. You stated her mother was Amanda. There is now another contributor, AndrewH. (#49094089) who sent an edit stating that "Grace is the daughter of 2nd wife Laura Angeline Barlett, not Amanda C." Can you please confirm who is the mother of Grace Buffum in Waukegan, IL? Thank you.
