Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching family genealogy for many years and also upload local cemetery registers for the cemeteries in our county.

I have no familial connection to most of the people I upload, so feel free to request transfers of your relatives. I only ask that you let me know how you're related to a family. Or if you have a decent reason, I'm good with that, too. If you'll take good care of a memorial, I have no problem transferring if you're not related.

While I have many memorials, I am not a numbers person. I would rather have family members maintain memorials.

I make updates very quickly, and usually do not reply back unless I have a question. I frequently will use the email provided in the edit to respond to a question. If your correction has not been made, please check to see if I've emailed, as I normally don't make the updates if I do not have the question answered.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

**Please use the Edit feature on memorials over requesting changes in messages or sending emails. That really is the easiest and most efficient way to accomplish updates. Thanks!**

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

****If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to maintain memorials, please transfer your records to someone who has an active account and are willing to take over management of the memorials. I am one of many willing to take over records. This really will help reduce duplicates.

Right now, you can email if you have someone who has accepted stewardship over the memorials you added. Please send in their member number with your email. Feel free to contact me should you wish that someone maintain the memorials you have created. Thanks!*****

Death is only an old door
Set in a garden wall
On gentle hinges it gives, at dusk
When the thrushes call
Along the lintel are green leaves
Beyond the light lies still;
Very willing and weary feet
Go over that sill
There is nothing to trouble any heart;
Nothing to hurt at all.
Death is only a quiet door.
In an old wall.

RE: Rolla Morrison
Thank you for contacting me regarding the conflicting dates. The date of the article is April 30 not April 20. Sorry about that.

RE: Bickel Cemetery
Thanks for the info. I was really hoping for more info on the infant, but I knew it was a long shot. Thanks again for checking the records.

RE: Bickel Cemetery
1. I am looking for more info on Infant Bobbe Memorial# 51425186. I don't know which Bobbe family this child belongs with. I'm seeking any and all info available including date of birth, date of death, and parents' names.

2. Dorothea Bobbe Memorial# 51589350 and Maria Doratha Bobbe Memorial# 51424895 seem to be the same person. But there are definitely 2 different markers at the cemetery. ( I think even next to each other.)

Any insight into why there are 2 markers? Should the 2 memorials be merged? Should 1 be marked as a cenotaph -- and which one? I want to link some of her children and I don't know which memorial to use.

Any help you can provide would be most appreciated!

Hi Jonelle,

It's folks like you, who generously give of their time and talents to complete strangers, that make Find A Grave a wonderful adventure for the rest of us.
Happy hunting!

RE: Otho Ford
Thanks for the divorce info. I actually have 4 marriages for Otho. . . the 3rd is missing from the page: Maude Rider md. 22 Jan 1924 Chicago.

His name is technically not FORD either. . . he was actually a son of Effie Harveys first marriage to Milton Conklin and Charles Ford adopted him. It looks like he had trouble keeping his marriages together. . . lol

Remember when we were kids and our parents told us no one EVER got divorced in the olden days????
