Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started adding memorials to Find A Grave because I believe that everyone should be remember, even if there's no one left to mourn.

I'm using cemetery records to add memorials to Find A Grave. I'm also adding headstone photos, obituary transcriptions, and family links when possible.

If you have any questions, want to add any information or links, or correct any information, please use the 'Edit' to send the request. It makes it so much easier.

With permission, obituaries on the memorials that I've created have come from published obituary books written by the now late Wendell Tombaugh and Jean Cragun Tombaugh.

HAPPY hunting....

RE: George Morningstar Photo Request
April, I was working too fast and immediately after I hit the "send" button, I saw your note that there is no headstone. I'm sorry for the bother, and of course I'll remove the request. Thanks for understanding and for your good work. Michael

Susan Belle Keeler Miller
I see that you don't have Joanne June Miller Price Van der Weele. she was born on 1 June 1923 in Rochester, Fulton, Indiana and 23 June 2010 in Donaldson, Marshall, Indiana, USA. I see that you have my Aunt Norma Louise Miller Donovan, Uncle Ernest Frederick Miller, Aunt Carole Grace Miller Paulik and Aunt Martha Marie Miller Thompson. But you have my dad and Aunt Joanne June Miller Price Van Der Weele. Aunt Joanne June Miller is buried in Culver, Marshall, Indiana with Roy Delbert Price. I am new to this so I don't know how to put the children or parents in for my grandparents.

Ernest Michael Miller
I see that you have added Ernest Michael Miller. I found my password to I have added all of his children, parents, brothers, and sisters to his bio. but I cant seem to get the prefix of Sr. off of his site. If you want to add my dad to Susan Belle Keeler grave site. I will give you the information. Richard Milo Miller was born on 1 May 1929 in Chili, Miami, Indiana and died on 13 June 1974 in Hot Springs, Garland, Arkansas, USA. He is buried in Memorial Gardens Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA. I can give you more information on Susan Belle Keeler Miller and Ernest Michael Miller. Oh the obit that was written out in Eureka, Humboldt, California is on my account. Kathleen Ann Miller Thomason

Ada Abigail Retherford Stanley #77857477

Ada Abigail Retherford Stanley is the daughter of John Retherford #74448721 and Abigail Ross #28218799, and a granddaughter of Joseph and Elizabeth. I found her death certificate.

I was confused as I read the info about half-siblings as Joseph and Elizabeth died within a year of each other and there was no other marriage for either that I could find. Also, Elizabeth would have been in her 50's when Ada was born.

Thank you for all you do in providing memorials for Find-a-Grave. It makes my research a whole lot easier, especially when there are memorials for young children, who are born and died between census records. Many of them would never be found without Find-a-Grave.

Alva N. Jones/ Alvah M. Jones
I see you declined the edit I sent. I was wondering if noticed that the name is spelled Alvah M. Jones on the photo of the stone. I am wondering if you know for sure which spelling is correct so I have the name spelled correctly on my family tree. Thanks!

RE: Charlene Preston
Thank you April.

I think you are doing the correct (and right) thing. It is hard to keep up with rules and then when you run into a problem, sometimes hard to solve.

Thank you for your contributions to Find a Grave,
they are appreciated.
