Bio and Links
I am a retired fed living in Ogden, Utah and I love the fact that I now have the time to do genealogical research.

If you are related (or are more closely related than I am) to the people whose memorials I maintain, please let me know and I will happily transfer those to you. Similarly, if you spot any errors, please let me know and I will make the corrections right away!

****If I have taken a picture or posted one and you want to use it, please FEEL FREE! That's why I put them there... to share with others.****

RE: Wilsons
thank you for your explanations and "how things work" on find a grave. If it is ok with you we can leave things as they are for a while, after talking to my wife, who is Marion's granddaughter, we may at a later time make the request to hold the memorial. I appreciate your kindness.
Kind regards

I have some family photos my dad and I found in some stuff. One of these photos has the grave pic like the one here on John C Binders memorial. It says sister on the bottom of his wifes head stone. There is also a little birth announcement announcing the birth of Charlotte Fosdick. Some may be related to you and some may not. These were found here in Burlington Kansas. If interested, they are yours. I noticed you stated you were a cousin to John C Binder and his wife Eva.

Bertha Michael #21388937
You mentioned a Bertha. Was that Bertha Michael Williams? I remember being at my grandmother's house for Christmas break one year and my mother's "Aunt Bertha" came upstairs to wake me up. I was not feeling well and she diagnosed me with the mumps!

That was a long long ride back home to southwest Iowa.

Eva Lena Wendt
Yes, Eva Lena is my aunt.

Through some stuff I ran into I was able to add quite a bit of stuff about my grandmother. She is findagrave #123955760 if you want to take a look.

If you look you will see all of my grandmother's children (including my mother) and links to her parents.

Thanks for the info about where Lena is buried. I knew that she was the second child and still born but did not know where she was buried. I have corrected my information about her.

I would appreciate any additional information you may have that corrects what I have entered.

Hi Jerry
Yes Ed Tomlinson is my brother.
I think I know the picture you are speaking of, mom had a copy of it too.
I do not remember much about Fred (123955837) as he died when I was 2 months short of 5 years old. The only time I really remember seeing him was he was laying in bed at the top of the stairs in his house breathing oxygen. I think he died soon after that.

I see that you were Arnie's cousin.

He was my mother's (127056202) youngest brother.

RE: 78855880
Jerry, Anna was twice married. Henry H. Hardesty was Anna's first husband, not her father. James William Moon Find A Grave # 89397491 is her father. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks!
