Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have found that many of my memorials have been stolen and my photos given new photographer names. I don't know how you are doing this, but if I find these items, I will report you to FAG. Stop it immediately!! I have spent thousands of hours entering all of these names & I won't sit back and just allow them to be stolen!!!

Grave Memorial# 77625220 Margaret Ruth Grainger
Hello, Dee:

I wanted to follow-up on my email to you during the busy New Year's holiday week, that my message may have gotten overlooked, and I do understand. Since then, I have received a funeral home record for Great-Aunt Ruth. Would you be so kind to transfer her page to me?
My Find A Grave member number is #48557459.
I hope that you favor me with the transfer.
Thank you, Margaret

RE: Nellie Welch (1869-1889)
Thank you, Dee! Immediately after I sent you my email request I discovered I could request changes to memorials as you have described. I believe you have already accepted that change. Thank you for all the work you do in posting memorials on Find A Grave! My family and other families have benefited from your work. I truly appreciate it!

John Mark Lambertson
RE: Lambertson
Yes, I can. But first let me tell you that the tombstone photo for him is incorrect. It was mistakenly added by my sister, and this Civil War musician was probably a grandson of the John born in 1789. I'll get that changed.

John and Priscilla had twelve children, and it just now occurred to me that it makes more sense to add that information to their Findagrave memorials than here, where few would see it! I will add those 12 kids today, so check it out. Maybe I should also search for Findagrave pages for the 12 and link them to their parents. Another genealogy project!

I am actually not descended from them, but John's brother Thomas Lambertson (1790-1863). Photos of both John and Thomas exist, and can be found on along with the bigger family genealogy.

Good to hear from you!

When I was younger (1968) I helped an elderly lady by the same name. She lived on West Lafayette street and had an Antique store in her house, the house was probably, if not the biggest it was one of the biggest, in Rushville. It is no trouble, I drive past the Rushville cemetery everyday going to see my mother. I will see what I can find.

RE: Cyrus & Mary Shotwell
Merry Christmas! Amen sister. I KNOW the reason for the season! I will add photos and info when I can. Probably Sunday. If you email me at, I will send them for your personal files. I also have an extensive ancestry tree that I will invite you to if you are interested. Lots more on shotwells there too. I'm exhausted from work and a wake today. I think I have some pages out of a book on the shotwells and LOTS on Mary's family. :)
Nice to meet you distant cuz! ;)

Julia Axtell
I am trying to get your photo request for you on Julia Axtell but I don't believe there is a stone left for her. I believe she would be at the very small Axtell Cemetery just because her other siblings are there during the time of her death. Here is a link to the transcription of the cememtery.
I don't see her either by her mother in Ogdensburg Cemetery. I checked this cemetery's transcription and do not she her there. It wouldn't be far fetched to think that her stone is no longer at Axtell Cemetery. It is basically just above the ditch line of a county road. If you have more info, I'd love to help further.

Howell Cemetery - Illinois
I visited Howell Cemetery in August of 2010 and was very excited to find it well kept and so many family members buried in the cemetery. There is still a sign that states the name as "Howell Cemetery" though it is located on Sugar Grove Rd. The cemetery itself is at the back of a corn field and if you aren't careful you can completely miss it. The farmer has kept a 10 ft. path clear towards the cemetery. Thomas S. and his wife Sarah Catherine are buried there towards the front and his parents (John and Sarah Manlove)are buried there as well. There are numerous children's graves as well as other immediate family members. I took pictures of every stone and downloaded them to my computer which in return crashed. I plan on making another trip this Spring/Summer to re-take pics and to visit the Historical Society again for even more info. I will gladly share any pics I take with fellow family members!

Mrs. Gonzales: Thanks for noting the graves of Joseph Decatur Patterson, Martha Minerva Potts Patterson and their son, Clem, in the Mancos, Colorado cemetery. Decatur, or Cate, as he was known, was a Colorado legend, a member of the historically significant Russell Party from Georgia in 1858 that discovered gold near what would become Denver and set off the Pikes Peak or Bust Gold Rush. He was an amazing pioneer, and the brother of my 2-great grandfather. Someday I hope to track down a photo. Thanks once again.
