Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family lines for over 20 years and the thrill hasn't diminished.
I enjoy taking pics at the cemeterys and submitting them in the hopes that someone will gain more family history and also because so many of the tombstones are fading or have broken thru the years. If any descendant objects to their ancestor being memorialized, please let me know and I'll remove the memorial.

I would like to give away every NON-RELATED memorial to people who have more information to add, so don't hesitate to ask; in your request, please include the memorial number (or a link to it) and your own Find-a-Grave member number.

I'm a photo rescuer - I often find old photos at flea markets and antique shops for a dollar or two with information written on the back of them. I try to find a family researcher to give the photo to or I will look for their findagrave site to add the picture to. If you see a photo and do not beleive that it belongs with the site or person please let me know to remove it. I add the photos to be shared.I can't guarantee who they are but can only go by what someone has taken the time to write on them, so if its not correct information I hope someone will let me know. I like to rescue them from being lost or destroyed, in the hopes that someday someone will find one my of lost photos.

FAMILY NAMES that my husband and I are researching: Livingston,Menke, Wiebler,Rempe,Groene, Rutledge,Bryant, Shawgo, McNew, Portlock, Tischbein, Rankin, Herd/Heard, Bailey.

RE: John Munsell - gravesite # 181930757
Another thought, I did have another request today at a different cemetery. The obituary said the service was held there. This clerk went to the vertical files when he couldn't find her in the book. Her file stated that the cremains were given to the family. So, they just used the chapel for the service, but she was not buried there. Interesting stuff.

Hi Diane,
You are most welcome. It was kind of odd. The receptionist showed me the card, there was no other information on it. However, I have found cemetery records in these card systems to not always be accurate. This particular cemetery has never checked any other files for me, only the index card file. However, there was a new receptionist today (they go through a lot of them) that was extremely helpful and friendly. If you would like, I could go back and see if she could dig a little more for me. Just let me know. :)

David Blake - OOPS!
It wasn't a 1775 obit.... it was an obit for: David Blake: born on Feb. 13, 1762 in Massachusetts, USA Died on Dec. 22, 1855, Ohio Township, Gallia County, Ohio, USA He was apparently 13 in 1775 and they sent him home from the battle....

There is a note from you (with Flowers) on his grave 1764 - d. 1854 Gallia OH. You mention a 1775 obit and sending him home. Do you have a copy of it? Are you willing to share? I am direct descendant and would love to have a copy. (I also belong to the DAR.... it would mean a lot to me...) TIA either way. Deborah

Hi Diane,

I see you have old photos of my great grandparents, the Gottricks in Knoxville, Il. I would love, love, love to have these pictures or digital copies. If you could go to Genealogy Gumshoe (#49074593) and email me as I don't seem to be able to email you.
