Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a retired senior, I have become interested in family geneology and have been fairly sucessful in locating family history. I take grave photos when requested and have had several of my photo requests fulfilled.

Contact me if errors are found.

Any family member who views a close relatives file (parent, grandparent, great grandparent, or sibling) on findagrave and wishes to take control should contact me through the Edit tab on the findagrave memorial and I would be happy to transfer control to you.

RE: # 344889294 Kathleen Ullery Norris
I have noticed the number is under the name and there is no number under his name. Before I ask for anything I'd like understand what I do if you were to transfer things pertaining to my family member.
This is only my 2nd day of this.

My name is Kathleen Ullery Norris.
You have a copy of my grandpa Anderson's obituary as well as pictures at the cemetery.
What do you mean by transfering care of memorial? (I forgot the proper term you used)
This is all new to me. My dad and I started our genealogy 40 years ago. He passed five years ago this Memorial day. I have picked up the journey.
Thank you for your time and guidance.

RE: Betty Merrifield
Hi Scabbardfish,

I am sorry, I thought when I left a message, as I did, that that automatically told you who it was and where it was located. Please forgive me.

Betty Merrifield is #44830000. She is buried in Greenwood Cemetery, LaGrange, LaGrange Co., IN. Her mother is Retha V.(Ringler)Gage.

It is interesting as Betty had a sister born the following year. Everything I can find on Betty gives that same year of birth. I figured her mother had her when she was 11y, 2m, 26 days and that does not figure in the 9 months of being pregnant. Her mother would have been 10 years old when she got pregnant. If I was the parent of Retha, I would have killed the father.

I have checked everything I can on the mother and on Betty and can't find anything to explain this.

You don't have to spend time on this, I just thought if it was your family, you might have some answers.

Thanks for responding.

Biggs grave marker
If you live in the area, or have a contact at the cemetery, can you please advise whether there is a grave marker for Dorothy Ann Biggs dod 8-11-1984, at Southlawn Cemetery in South Bend IN. Her husband has a stone, Floyd H. Biggs, dod 11-10-1975. Her ashes would have been placed with him, possibly at the end of 1985. Thank you.
