Bio and Links
Bio Photo 28 July 2017
Most of the memorials I manage are in Rest-Haven Memorial Park. The cemetery has about 17,000 graves with just over 15,500 of them on Find-A-Grave. Rest-Haven has a mausoleum in addition to the cemetery. This cemetery has no upright gravestones, only flat ground level grave marker. The cemetery does not require that a grave be marked, so many graves have no markers.

I enjoy genealogical research and like to enhance the memorials I manage. It will take several years for me to research all 5,000 plus memorials. I give top research priority to a memorial when interest is shown in that memorial. So when edits are sent to me I research that memorial. If you have information for a memorial please send it. Also, if you have a special interest in a memorial let me know and I will see what additional information I can find about that person.


If you have a damaged or faded photo that you want to post, please email it to me instead of posting it. I would like to repair it prior to posting. If you would like the photo credit let me know and I will send you the repaired copy, so you can post it.


FAG members-


If you have a correction, extra information or want a transfer please use the EDIT TAB on that individual's memorial. Then use the suggestion option to add information or ask for a transfer. If asking for a transfer please state how you are related.

Non members-

If you wish to add something to a memorial, but you are not a Findagrave member/contributor, please send me an email with your information. On the email's subject line put "Findagrave- (the memorial number and/or name)". Be sure to also include the person's name and memorial number in your email. A correct memorial number is extremely important. Please double check the memorial number you send.

Good afternoon Rebecca. Thank you so much for all your hard work in making these sites available at the touch of one's fingers. I have recently delved into connecting some long lost family members and I found my grandfather's grave (M# 72988851) is not linked with his mother (M# 72988818) or father (M# 72988800) and so on. Is it ok if I give you this info to connect them? Others are maintaining his parents graves and I will contact them as well. Again, thank you so much for all you do!!!

Thank you for posting information on my Gr-Aunt Daisy McNemee Gilmore. On her bio page, you said to contact you for her obituary. I would very much love to see her obit. If you could email that to me, that would be great. The bio you placed here on Find A Grave for her is very good. Yes she was born in Quincy, Illinois. Thank you, Elaine Neel

Hello Rebecca, Thank you for the updates on my grandmothers, Grandmother! I have the info here in front of my face and somehow managed to not put it on Amanda's memorial. I will update it with her actual place of birth as I have that info also. Too many ancestors, not enough time! Thank you again. Are you a relative by chance?

RE: Paul Norris #69431671
It is true I added one of the photos of Paul Norris.

It was Bev Boyer (#47167308) who added the gravestone photo from the Minnesota cemetery where Edna Norris, his first wife is buried. Bev Boyer also created Edna's memorial there.

Perhaps you could ask her to fulfill your creative solution.

I would be happy to move Paul's photo then.
Like I state in the caption to his photo, my source was in the public domain: "History of Poweshiek County, IA, A Record..." by Prof. L. F. Parker. The S. J. Clarke Publishing Co. Chicago. 1911. pages 110-116.

RE: Jessie Sweet #73909850
I looked again and it said on her marriage license to her first husband that she lived in Cottonwood County, Minnesota at the time of her marriage. Not sure if she was born in that county or not. I removed my edit since the date was off, but you can manually add it in now.

Ok, can you transfer him (meaning Royal Harvey Hazleton) to me

Really appreciate it, also after you do can you delete him from your site since you are not related to him and I am?
