Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired geologist living in Denver, Colorado. I spent the last 25 years working in Alaska exploring for oil. Prior to that, I lived and worked in London, England, Bogota, Colombia, Spain, Holland and numerous cities in the U.S.

I don't care for the automatic edit function of FAG and have stopped using it because of some members' incorrect genealogy. If you have an edit or suggestion, just contact me by message or email directly and be sure to provide the memorial #. Please mention or provide some reasonable evidence for the suggested edit and then I will be happy to make the changes otherwise, I am going to ignore the suggestion. Bad genealogy is very difficult to remove from the public record, so please verify your sources and avoid assumptions.

1Titus 1:4 "..nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith".

Robert Anderson
Hi David, thank you for adding an obituary to the memorial for Robert Anderson @ Graceland Cem., Racine, WI, #88295346. I've added his wife, Johanna and his daughter Martha Griffith. However, looking at Robt's obit., it mentions his wife as being Kathinka? I'm not a relative, just a volunteer who photographs cemetery. Do you have any idea as to why they would list the wife's name incorrectly? Or was he married twice? Regards, Nadeen

Eva & Maurice Harrison
That last message should have said Maurice, not William, Harrison. Still trying to figure out the French. It just seems Leta French born 1884 and Alleta French Hanson born 1846 should be related since they lay so close together. I will keep working on it.

RE: Clyde Rexford Hanson Photo
Thank you for the additional information. Eva and William Harrison are on the other side of the stone from the Hanson family. Interestingly enough one plot over is the French family. There is no Thomas listed but there is a Letta French so chances are good that the families are related. I went back for a few more pictures this morning, in a different light, and will continue to add those. I will see if I can determine how the Hanson and this French family are connected or if it is just a remarkable coincidence.

RE: Fabian Gosen Photo
Also listed the other 3 GOSIN names in the same section. I always include comments, any transcript on the marker, and GPS. But you might have to wait a day or two for those Edits. Understand you'll be skiing until July with all the snow. Enjoy!
