Bio and Links
I love genealogy. My husband and I traveled to find the gravesites of our relatives and were so thrilled when we found them. We took pictures and made memorial pages for our family albums. I found Find A Grave by accident and started taking pictures of local cemeteries when there was a photo request. After several trips back to the same cemeteries I started taking a few extra pictures each time. I was happy to be able to add them for future family researchers. What a great idea! I hope I can help someone else find who they are looking for. Credit FAG, it is a wonderful site.

For the Cook County area credit Judy Annis at the Cook County Historical society. She wanted to document all of Cook County cemeteries as a gift for the residents of Cook County. She is currently working on linking family members. I was honored to help with her project.

RE: Lorena jones Boston City Cem
I doubt it as she didn't have daughters named Laura and Mary.

Thanks for asking though. :)

RE: Pictures/Beaver Dam
Awesome! It is a curiosity that George F. Griner had a daughter and step daughter with such similar names. Makes you wonder about the connections between Minnie Griffin and Saleta Bostick. Glad you found your Oleta.

RE: Pictures/Beaver Dam
Trying again.
Thanks for the message on Ola Griner, Saleta Bostick Griner and George F. Griner. The relationships you referenced were not entered by me, but "calculated" by FAG, so I cannot edit them.

However, I have several census records showing Ola's birth date as 1908. The 1910 census shows two-year-old Ola living with her grandmother Rachel Bostick. I'll be happy to share if you'll send me a contact.

RE: Help make family connections please!
I didn't reply last year because just today I've finally found the time to do it! Yes! Thank you very much. Have sent edits for several and your advice worked like a charm!

RE: James Marvin Jordan
Hi Cat - I have accepted the edits. I haven't been on f.a.g. in a while. I've been cleaning up 243 old photos a cousin was kind enough to let me scan. :-)
