Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in NE Iowa, but have lived in the south suburbs of Chicago since 1958.

I have been doing genealogy since 1998 and I am researching the families of: Lowell, Stamm, Burr, Wigal, Platt, Weed, Lamphier/Lamphear, Mazzocca, DeNardo/DiNardo, and DeNovellis.

If you find any errors in my info, please let me know so I can fix them. I will gladly transfer any memorial that is not my relative. I am also willing to add any links or additional information you may have.

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stand among the rest,
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care:
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist,
You died, and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse,
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: Peter Fellenwarth
Thanks for the offer, but I'm not related. I came across the information and thought it might help someone especially if they didn't know where they were from in Alsace.

Memorial Transfer request
Glendola 89633635 is my grandmother's sister. Would you consider transferring if she is not a relative. Thank you for your consideration.

St Mary's cemetery McGregor IA

I noticed you had a photo for St Mary's Cemetery. I am hoping you might have a contact for that cemetery as I may have relatives buried there. Any assistance is appreciated. Robin
