Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family genealogy since approx. 2001, and I became a "junkie" very quickly. I live in the Seattle area where my family has lived for over 6 generations, coming primarily from Ohio and Florida.

I have been working with my Aunt Sharon ("sharon") since 2005, adding our shared genealogy to findagrave from my husbands side of the family, adding all the information under her membership (#46795073). We have connected with so many generous volunteers all over the United States who have located and photographed family headstones for us. We both try to return the favor when ever we are asked to, and are so grateful to findagrave for this service, which has added so much to our research. We never would have been able to accomplish so much without findagrave, and the generous volunteers that are members.

I am researching: Smith, Ristine, Kipp, Ingersoll, Cunningham, Bishop, Bean, Moose, Kivett, Platt and Golnick, as well as many other branches of these names. I have been blessed to have connected to many members of my family, who have been working on genealogy much longer than I have, and have been so generous to share their hard work with me, which has given me a great base to build upon.

Most of my entries are relatives. If you are too, I would love to hear from you and compare notes. Please include "findagrave" in subject line with any correspondence.

You must be related to Wally Bean, husband of Betty Jane Cathro. Did Betty Jane die in 1968? What happened to her daughter Barbara? She was married to a Myers.
My grandmother was Anna Marie Marquardt Ohrt, daughter of Carten's first wife Lammerts.

RE: Theodore Gillette Ingersoll children
What was her name? Is there a memorial for her? She would have had to be the second born, since Katie was born within s year of their marriage. -And there is an age gap between Katie and Viola

Theodore Gillette Ingersoll children
I have located all of his children except one. Since Viola is the third, and there is only 2 children in the 1880 census, I assume the child died young. Can you put me out of my misery and help?

My son and I scoured the entire Candor cemetery yesterday as well as Oak Hill cemetery (located directly behind the Candor one) and was unable to find Mr. Fitzgerald's gravesite. Is there any other family members near him or any other name that I might try?

We respectfully request permission to use the cemetery sign photo in our online tree with credit. Marie has a cousin interred there and the photo will make a great addition.

Thanks for your consideration.
