Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history for many years. I think the Find A Grave website is a wonderful tool for researchers who might never get the chance to physically visit the graves of their ancestors. I will contribute to this project by submitting information on my family members and others. Feel free to contact me for any additions, corrections or transfers. I gladly transfer memorials to family unless they are my family too. Also, all headstone photos that I enter may be used for your personal family histories.

Thomas Bollen

Thank you for posting the informations on Thomas Bollen #97654264

I have submitted an edit for his birth date to the year 1813 from 1819 (which you list). Looking at the picture I can't tell the last number. However, Thomas is listed in a variety of other places as 1813 for a birth date including

Portrait and Biographical Album Henry County Illinois, pp. 522-23

Which Google has digitized

They do spell his name wrong (Bollen), but have him married twice to Mary A. Davis and Lydia Potts as the gravestone states so I think this is indeed him.

I particularly care to confirm the 1813 date since he is in my lineage and I am working out my family history.

To answer your question -
If you provide source = Name of newspaper & date published...Proof always needed for accuracy.

To avoid copyright violations, I will not copy & paste obituaries unless permission is provided from the newspaper & date published.

Photo Request Earl Kling
Hi, I took a photo of his marker and added it to his memorial. At this point it doesn't name a death date on the marker. The dirt is not even completely leveled since has been cold and snowy lately. I will keep it on my list to go back after awhile to get one with the death date on the marker.

RE: Myrtle Alexander Roll
I hope to get a better photo of this headstone when we are next in Taylor County, but I thought that you might like to see the headstone since you have waited so long. Best wishes, Julia Johnson

Carol Epp
Hi. I posted a photo of Carol McDowell Epp's grave marker in the memorial that was originally created in the wrong cemetery. I also created a new memorial with a photo in the correct cemetery and made links to her parents. If the originator of the the first memorial makes the correction I will go ahead and delete my duplicate. If you want to handle any of this I will transfer Carol's memorial to you. John Quiring

RE: Carol Epp
I took the photo today. Her burial is in the FEBC cemetery. I asked the contributor who started the memorial to correct the cemetery. Hopefully that will happen. I'll post the photo tomorrow.

I have claimed a photo request for Carol Epp. However, I think that the memorial is linked to the wrong cemetery (according to the obituary). I will check it out. John Q
