Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am more than happy to make additions and/or corrections to memorials. Please use the edit key rather than leaving a public message. If you are a relative and would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please submit that request through the edit key as well. Please state how you are related. Transfer requests outside of Find A Grave guidelines will be considered on an individual basis.


When I take photos at cemeteries, I like to take a wide shot if possible to include other family members. I usually create a caption for the photo saying who is in the photo. To see the caption, just double click on the photo.

I am granting permission to use photos that I have taken for any non-commercial use. Please acknowledge that the photo was taken by Find A Grave Contributor Janet Marie #480008518 - especially when reposting it on Find A Grave.


There are some contributors who create memorials for individuals and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers to create memorials for the person in the correct cemetery. Then after the individual is found, the contributor sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. It's pretty unscrupulous, but it's done. Please, don't do this to Find A Grave contributors who work hard walking local cemeteries and taking thousands of photos.

If I happen to find one of the people you have been looking for, please send me a thank you through the edit key, remove your memorial, and request a transfer. I will be more than happy to honor your request. I might even be willing to move my photos over to your memorial and delete mine under certain circumstances.


If there are duplicate records in a cemetery, a request will be sent to Find A Grave to merge the memorials. All the information, photos, etc. will be preserved. Find A Grave will decide which memorial to keep, which usually is the memorial that was created first in the correct cemetery. This usually takes about 1-2 weeks.


I enjoy photographing entire cemeteries, creating new memorials, and adding photos to existing memorials. I try to do a quick search to see if I can document family relationships. Before I go on to the next cemetery, I try to make sure that duplicate memorials have been removed and all memorials are actually in the correct cemetery (when possible).

Listed below are the cemeteries I have completed so far by county. The first year listed is the year I photographed the entire cemetery. The second year, if listed, is the year I last walked through the entire cemetery again looking for updates.

Thank you so much for put these on. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I've stopped working on that line and someone else has taken over, it will be very helpful for them. Thank you so much.

Lone Pine Cemetery
I had always hoped that a volunteer would photograph all the remaining gravestones at Lone Pine and post them. It is completed now and you have done a wonderful job. I appreciate your hard work! I especially like the wide shots that show the cemetery lots as it helps family historians put the families together. And the photos are of excellent quality!

Thanks again.

RE: John Barrett Bancroft # 25473188

RE: John Barrett Bancroft # 25473188
Hi Janet,

Thank you for contacting me. The John Bancroft that you found is the grandson of John Barrett Bancroft and Sarah (Bancroft) Rich was his aunt.

John was born 9 Mar 1858 in Pine Grove, Portage, Wisc. and died in Oct of 1861 in Pine Grove, Portage, Wisc. His father was Ezekial Barrett (known as E. B. Bancroft) Find A Grave # 20280837. Ezekial was my great grandfather.

John Bancroft's mother was Rosina nee Jones Bancroft. I have never been able to find her anywhere. I do not know if she died, as both of their sons did. I can't find a divorce or remarriage for her. E. B. Bancroft remarried my great grandmother Adeline A. Craig.

Thanks again.

Helen Fenton Rogers
This memorial was created by another member and placed in Lone Pine. Helen is not listed in either the Guyant transcriptions, or the Central Wisconsin Cemetery locator, both of which are usually accurate for 20th century burials. It also seems unlikely that the small footstone known as Unknown 4 was her gravestone. So I think it most likely that this memorial is a mistake and Helen is probably buried elsewhere.

Unknowns at Lone Pine
On the transcriptions Mary J. Pierce is shown as being next to Mary F. Pierce, wife of Amos. Mary J. is listed as follows: "Pierce Mary J. - 1883-1900 (no last name)." I believe she is almost certainly the daughter of Amos and Mary F. Pierce, with her mother, Mary F., dying soon after Mary J's birth.

The 'Jane' stone is located next to Lorinda H. Cram and Lyman W. Cram. The transcription is: "CRAM Jane (footstone - no dates)." I am almost certain she was the daughter of Lyman and Lorinda Cram if you want to make the correction and links on your Jane memorial.

I am looking at Helen Jane Fenton Rogers. She could be one of your unknown footstones, or she might be in an entirely different cemetery. Nancy Rogers was wife 1 of George Rogers and Helen was wife 2. Still working on it.

I recall some of the others from my research 15 years ago. They were all very difficult with lots of early tragic deaths making it hard to sort people out. I decided not to post them if I wasn't 99% certain. Blank footstones are often a guessing game. I will continue to look them over and get back to you.

Lone Pine
20 years ago I bought the transcription of Lone Pine from the Wisconsin State Geneological Society in Madison. I checked online and they still sell paper copies of all their transcriptions (including 34 Portage county cemeteries). Unfortunately they are copied on light brown paper and I have numerous scribbles and notes on mine so it is not scannable to send to you.
From what you say I think the Guyants got their directions wrong for Lone Pine. They have it laid out in 15 rows south to north with the graves running east to west, or so they say. They have the Bibby graves in what they call Row 1 to the South and they have Francis listed in the same row as the other Bibbys.
For the three Bibby graves we are looking at this is the full transcription: (Marker - name gone) died May 21 ____ aged 59 y's, 2 m's, & ??; Edith - wife of (Rest of Marker gone); Son of Miles & ? Bibby - died Apr. 23, ??, aged 1 yr. & 11 mo's.
Also in Row 1 to the south, next to Ida Russell Harvey's grave they have this note: "A lot of footstones but no names or dates."
In Row 4 to the North, next to Nancy A. Rogers grave they have this note: "There are three more footstones on this lot."
In Row 9 to the North, next to Mildred L. Wallner's grave they have this note: "One footstone - L. K. S."
And the most interesting grave they found, the oldest in the cemetery, was in Row 14 to the South, next to Clyde Felch's grave: "Name gone ____ - died Jan. 3, 1854 aged 1 year & 9 months.
There were other graves they had difficulty with, but I was able to get complete information elsewhere.
Hope this helps.

Bibby and Bancroft gravestones
I think you are right on Baby Bibby, but you may have Edith and Eleanor reversed. I can't read the stones either, but I base this on the 1972 Wayne and Alta Guyant transcription, which lists them, east to west, as Francis Bibby, Eleanor Bibby, Edith Bibby, Son of Miles and ? Bibby. On your photos is the top of the photos direction north?
As for John Bancroft, no dates, I could not find any definitive evidence. However, I know from other sources that John B. Bancroft's son, Ezekial Barrett Bancroft, had five children while living with wife Adeline in Portage Co. WI. Unfortunately, none of the five known children was named 'John.' The older John Bancroft was already widowed when he moved to WI and he didn't remarry; and, his other son Edwin R. Bancroft died in the Civil War, unmarried, no known children. You may want to talk to the present manager of the John B. Bancroft memorial. Just click on her name 'Patty'. She is a Bancroft relative. I am not.
For the unreadable stones that you photographed if you can give me the names of the adjacent stones I can check the 1972 transcription if you like to see if more information was readable at that time.
Thanks again for all your hard work, not only at Lone Pine, but all those cemeteries in the area.

Lone Pine Cemetery
Thank you so much for taking and posting all those grave photos of Lone Pine Cemetery. I am related to about 20 of the people buried there, including my grandfather, Walter D. Corrigan.

You may find this interesting. On 6 October 1903 a huge tornado (called cyclone then) went through Lone Pine Cemetery and toppled or even destroyed many of the gravestones there at the time. Margaret Fisher, who is buried there, was killed in the storm.

May I ask if you found any old gravestones at Lone Pine for which you had to create the memorial because there wasn't one?

Thanks again for your incredible work.
