Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1951, in Phoenix, AZ. I have been researching my family history since 1971. I have ten children and 22 grandchildren. We now live in Mesa, AZ.

I've always loved cemeteries! There is such wonderful information on this website. I would be glad to help someone else in their search.

While researching some of my family history on this site, I found that someone had taken the time to add photos of obituaries to many of my relatives' memorials. This thoughtful act touched me. I have decided that to repay their kindness - I tried adding memorials for those found in online obituaries for the Arizona Republic, The East Valley Tribune, and the Apache Junction Gold Canyon News, but soon discovered that someone else was duplicating my entries! I then went to a nearby cemetery and took photos of some name plates and created memorials for them. I hope to continue to add memorials to this site.

Please freely share any photo I've posted!  Share and copy them on the internet, with family and friends, anywhere, anybody.  I didn't take the photo to make money!  I take photos so that friends and family may see and have them.

If you are related to someone whose memorial I have created - I will be happy to transfer it to you - just let me know. If you find any error or omission in a memorial which I have entered, use the edit tab or contact me! Since I may only have had the obituary or the gravestone to go by, many times I do not have all of the information. If you have further information to add to a memorial, I will be happy to make changes.

Your very welcome, yes I was busy.beautiful weather -70s in Missouri for February! Made a day of paying it forward. We all contribute in different ways, some photograph, others enter information, others linking families. I started just entering my family, as others added to mine, I wanted to give back. We can accomplish so much when we all work together.

RE: Thank You!
You're very welcome. I remember seeing another McCallister very close to this one - not sure if it's a relation or not. I'll see if I can find it.

RE: Marie Vogelsang Moore
Hi Claudia - thanks for checking the info - I found Friedrich Vogelsang's memorial in the Lorimier Cemetery in Cape Girardeau. I was puzzled because he died in 1904, but Marie's mother identified herself as a Widow in the 1900 census. If you're certain that he is the father, I'll link the children to him.

Marie L Vogelsang Moore
Hi Claudia - thanks for the maiden name tip! If you have time and don't mind, please check out Marie's memorial to see if I've made any errors. I haven't been able to figure out her death date.

Also - I figured out who her mother is - if you are familiar with the family, you might see some mistakes there too. Thank you!
