|Bio and Links|
This has been my hobby for over seven years, started long before I discovered any websites for posting them.|
I find myself concentrating on the older, broken, unreadable tombstones, the ones that, because of layers of mold, lichen and grime, are so obscure that people tend to walk right past them. I get more satisfaction uncovering a lost individual's stone than I do photographing huge monuments that will be around for a thousand years and those more modern ones of the men whose bones have partially disintegrated while still clothed in the everlasting polyester suits that they were buried in!

Hi, my name is Janet Sanford and I see you have a memorial for James Maruna. I was wondering if you are related to him, as he is my GG Grandfather on my mom's side. Any info you could pass on to me would be greatly appreciated, as until now was not able to find out where he was buried. Thank you.

If you still believe it is correct to delete the mother as shown in your delete, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you and you may adjust it as you see fit. I do not know this family; thus, I have no vested interest and perhaps you have more or better information than I.

Dear Ms. Moonen: I was delighted to find Reuben Williams' gravestone in Linwood Cemetery, Dubuque. He was a member of the 147th Regiment NYSV and he apparently died in 1879 or early 1880. When you took the picture of his stone, did you by any chance see a stone for his wife, Mary L. Moffitt Williams? I know she was alive in 1893 but cannot trace her farther. She and Reuben had a son, Selden H., and a daughter, Julia. Any information you may be able to provide will be most gratefully received. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall, PhD

Why do you say she is not the daughter of Lillie in your edit? The 1900 and 1910 U. S. census both show head of household as Warren F. Abdill, wife as Lily/Lillie and children as Ira, Earl O. or Otto, Ina P., Emma H. or Hazel, Lela and Mildred. I don't know the family and I do not really care one way or the other. However, I would like to have it correct if we know what correct is and the census from two years seem to show she is indeed a daughter of Lillie. If you know otherwise, please let me know your source.

Cheryl, It was Arne O. Rye that was first postmaster of Hanlontown, not Anna Marie Rye. In 1899 Arne and his brother opened a general merchandise store in Hanlontown and Arne became postmaster in 1900. Arne was also the first mayor of Hanlontown.

Thank you for the transfer of the Goodman family memorials. I can add more information.
