Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE READ - For those who make memorials the day someone shows up in the obituaries - This is NOT a game to be used as a means to see who can have the largest count!! You greatly upset families when you do that. I had this happen to me concerning my Grandparents. Please view this link and if you are this type of volunteer I hope you heed the opinion of many of us when we say this behavior is ghoulish!!!! Give it a rest. Thank you.


About me:

Ever since I was a young teen I walk through cemeteries. There is such a peace that I feel when gazing upon the memorials of the departed. Often times I would wonder if anybody still cared about those who have gone before. I liked to think so. After all, one day we all will be gone and will want to be remembered as well. As I have gotten older and I realize the days ahead may not be as many as the days behind, I love walking through cemeteries more than ever.

I like to imagine what life may have been like for those now buried. Many family lots seem to yell, "we had a story". I love to take photographs and try to learn of those who walked the earth a long time before me. Some of the prettiest cemeteries are in my own back yard here in Green Bay, Wisconsin and they are surrounded by history. I love walking to these local cemeteries because the walk takes me through some gorgeous neighborhoods with awesome houses. Many of those individuals who are buried in those cemeteries may very well have lived in one of those houses or walked the same streets. I like to imagine what it was like back when things were slower paced.

Because I am also a history buff these walks to and through local cemeteries tend to satisfy some of that passion for the past. I am delighted to start paying tribute to deceased family and friends. I feel it is an honor to fulfill photo requests and I will try to take and edit quality pictures that will bring honor to those loved ones or ancestors. I am not doing this for numbers or game I simply enjoy helping people memorialize those who have gone ahead.

**When asking for corrections or suggestions please provide specifics such as memorial numbers and understandable sentences of what you want. Many of us are not familiar with some of the short hand lingo used by some contributors. I want to honor all requests and do them correctly the first time however if the request is obscure I may have to ignore it. Thank You**

Joseph Horner III
Hello Dawn
Thank you for posting my father! I see that there is only his father, Joseph Horner Jr on your list of family. I thought I'd fill in s few gaps in case you wanted to ad. My name is also Joseph Horner (IV) and I am his only child. My mother, Martha Williams Horner, also survives. His mother's name was Emma Loraine Horner (maiden: Weise, also I have never been certain whether Loraine has one or two 'r's, if Loraine was her first or middle name, also her other name is Emma or Emily-I do see she is listed by someone else one findagrave as Lorraine Horner-also at Woodlawn)

George Barlament 109905165
Found out he was discharged for a head injury in Jan 1863. Then the following September, 1864 he re-enlists into Company C, Mississippi Calvary (Union). Both times was Vetrinarian for the horses. Also agree with you on the "numbers" game. Some one put my mother up the day after the obit was in the paper. Even had her in the wrong cemetery. They asked me for the correct info, I wouldn't give them the time of day since there was no offer to transfer the ownership to me! by the way, you can keep George, he is kind of shirt tail relation. Next time I get up there, I will send you a pic for him. I had one but lost it!

Photo Request
Thank you for listing my ancestor on Find-a-grave. I would love to have a photo of the stone if you have time.
Cecelia L Meinecke
Birth: 1878
Death: 1962
Abrams - Stiles Catholic Cemetery
Oconto County
Wisconsin, USA
Plot: S4 / L410

If she is buried in a plot with others, I would love if a photo can be taken of the others also. I like to have a photo of how the stone lies in the plot overview photo. I know it is not traditional to put them on Find a grave but perhaps you could send one to me if you can.
Thank you for your work. Luana Eggert
