Bio and Links
Bio Photo *I ask that you do not copy any of my photos WITHOUT MY CONSENT or WITHOUT GIVING ME PROPER CREDIT. Too many times my photos have been "lifted" from either at F.A.G. or at where they have been reposted to a foreign website and in order to view them, one must pay a fee. Additionally, I have come across many of my photos on other genealogy websites with no mention of a credit.

While I will let most people copy a photo if it is to be used for genealogy purposes, I strictly prohibit people using any of my photos for monetary gain. All I ask is that you give me credit for any photos you would like to copy.

Regarding transfers of memorials - I will be happy to transfer a memorial if the person is not related to me or an ancestor of mine. Transfers should be within the F.A.G. guidelines, i.e., NO BULK SURNAME REQUESTS and only for direct relatives within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren).

As per F.A.G. guidelines, transfers for non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) are not required to be transferred.

With that being said, I have to say that I inherited my interest in "root-digging" from my Dad, who has always been fascinated with history and genealogy.

I like the connection it gives me to the past and it lets me leave something behind for future generations.

While I strive to be as accurate as possible, sometimes human error can occur. If there are any corrections to be made, don't hesitate to let me know.

Thank you.

Northwest Suburban Genealogy Society
Our genealogy society has made a project of editing information at St. Paul's in Mt. Prospect. Mostly it is added the gravestone location. A few times it's correcting a mis-spelling or adding a photo. You probably can see that I've been doing alot of this in the last day or two. I'm hope you'll accept them. If you have any questions, you can contact us. Thanks so much for all the work you do for Find A Grave.

I found this article about the drowning. You may post if you wish.

Article from the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 15 September 1888 reads...


Carey, Illinois, September 15 - Walter Grantham, a salesman of Chicago, and his two sisters were drowned here today by the capsizing of a boat from which they were fishing on the Fox River.

Gosch and Rahn Family


I almost forgot...Rahn's and an Else Gosch are also buried in Mountain View.

Gosch, Anna M.

Hi Wendy,

Family names that surround Mrs. Gosch are Kratka, Carson, Howard, Robinson and Long. Familiar? I have yet to learn of those that are unmarked and will keep you posted.

Gosch, Anna M.

Hi Wendy,

Anna is indeed buried at Mountain View! She is resting next to unmarked graves...will look into who is buried in them. Otherwise, there are no familiar surnames when comparing census information. Do you have an idea as to who Anna traveled/living with in Los Angeles?


I am posting a temporary photo that I am not happy with and replace on Saturday. Just wanted to give you confirmation of her burial.
