"It is not about me, but those who have been a part of my life - they made me who I am today" Paula M Brown |
My given name is Paulina Margareta Lukosius and my married name is Paula M Brown. I was born in Caracas, Venezuela and came to the U.S. when I was 8 months old and my family settled in Chicago, IL. In about 1985, I started putting together charts and biographies of maternal and paternal families so that my children, grandchildren and beyond can benefit from the work that has been done.
What started with my family, as well as my husband's family has turned into helping others to preserve their history and documents. This is definitely an addicting hobby that has a labor of love value attached to it. This has been such a wonderful hobby for me, not to mention the wonderful people that I have met and become friends with.
I have learned so much through the dead that I have really come to enjoy History, a subject I was never really found of when I was a child. I love visiting cemeteries and even more so helping other preserve their family history.

My Findagrave number is #48247725, and I would love to manage my great-grandfather's memorial. I will send you that information.

Paula, William Beverly Mayes (66904575)is my great-grandfather. The facts on his findagrave info are incorrect. He is buried in Oakhill Cemetery in Sheffield, AL and his grave is clearly marked. Apparently, Jane Hall (Find A Grave member) was confused. The dates and places of birth/death are correct for him; Jesse Alden is his son (as is my grandfather). Can you please make this correction to his info? Thanks. Bunny Drueke

Is your memorial a duplicate to memorial #56896490?
Sure. a transfer would be great. I might add some more info as I find it. Also I was looking at https://greene.illinoisgenweb.org/index.htm and notice his name doesn't appear in the Deaths and I did find his obit in the Alton paper. I'm going to let them know that they might want to add him. Thanks you

Hi Paula, I was doing some research on my fathers mothers side of the family, The Milners. Looking into Isaac Milner, I see your Find A Grave memorial #45042649 that shows the burial in Woodbury Cemetery Woodbury Cumberland County Illinois, USA. I also found one of him buried in Woodbury Cemetery,Kane,Greene County
Illinois, USA which is Find A Grave #45042649. I believe this may be the correct cemetery because he was living in Kane, IL. when he passed away. I was trying to add more info the the second memorial but find the person that has that memorial has passed away. I'm going to try and send you updates to yours if you agree with them that is.. email me if you see any problems. thanks, Dan

Thank you for your quick response and moving these two memorials to Southland Memorial Park. The tombstone pictures have been added to each and the memorials entered by GPGS have been deleted.

memorial #88879584 Could you tell me was there an obituary for Keith or which paper I could look up one in? Thanks Pam
|Perry Trost||Thomas Bedford & Mary Ligon Coleman Bedford|
The website for Oakwood Cemetery in Charlotte, VA, states "Oakwood Cemetery opened in the early 1860s." Thomas Bedford (d.1785) and Mary Ligon Coleman Bedford (d.1769) so, unless they were moved, how could they be buried at Oakwood? There is also a prior memorial to Col. Thomas Bedford, #37755157, stating that Thomas Bedford is buried on his property at Locust Grove. I do not know if Mary Ligon Coleman is buried there, but there is a book stating she died giving birth to his son Archibald in Nov. 1769, so she is probably buried on whatever property he owned in 1769. She is the mother of all his children up to Archibald. Thomas married his second wife, Drucilla Williamson, in 1775, and they had three more children before his death.
