Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started working on the family trees, of my husband and myself, about 50 years ago. I was never told that there would be no end to it.

Most of the memorials I have added are not my family. I will be more than happy to transfer those to anyone who can add information and/or pictures. You do not have to be related. A good friend is better than nothing.

Please do NOT add death certificates to my memorials. Just ask for a transfer and then when it is your memorial you can add anything you like.

Please USE THE EDIT TAB and send documentation with your edits. I don't change my memorials without documentation. You may prefer to ask for a transfer and that will be fine as long as it isn't my family.

Please, please, please use the edit in the upper right hand corner of the memorial you wish to have edited.

RE: John Thomas Nichols

John Thomas Nichols
Dear Lela: Re #147847070. Your entry shows a civil war decal. A recent photo shows no civil war info on stone. What info do you have showing the civil war connection? Thanks OLDOCAL

Larry Hensley
Hi. How are you related to Larry Hensley? I notice you put his photograph on his memorial. He is my son-in-law's father.

Delia Cabler Dagen
Thank you for transferring Delia Dagen, even though I was not asking for the transfer. My goal is not to manage the memorials of all my family but rather to make sure they all have information needed by those like us who are trying to piece together a family tree. Thank you for the work you are doing on Find A Grave.

Hi Lela. Thanks for all your hard work in entering so many graves. My question relates to the entre for John Thomas Nichols, buried in the Green Mound Cemetery in Harwood, Vernon Co., MO. He is a relation to my wife. There is no entre showing a gravestone, but you have made an entre honoring him as a civil war vet. Do you have any info. how you came to that finding? I would like to enter his burial site in the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War National (SUVCW)Data Base, but I need some info. related to which Mil. command he was associated with as there are so many John Nichols veterans. I am a grave registration officer for the Gen. U.S. Grant Camp in Flagstaff, AZ.
Thank you so much for your time. Sincerely, Bob

Beggs buried in Armstong Cemetery
Hello Lela,

I was wondering what your source is for Ezra Beggs (149417981) and Rhoda Beggs (149417892) burials in Armstrong Cemetery in English Township in Jersey County, Illinois. I'm with the Jersey County Historical Society, and if you have a definitive source (such as a Family Bible), I'd like to include them with our burial records.

Thanks so much.
