Bio Photo Hello everyone.

I came across this website and decided it was a nice way to honor forever those loved ones who have crossed my path of life at some time whether family, friends, co-workers or their families. I have also included quite a bit of information on my family (Rake/Raike & McCane) as it becomes available for genealogy purposes.

If by adding any of your loved ones I have overstepped my bounds or upset you that is not my intent. If you do not like what I have done please let me know and I can delete the information.

Please use the edit button for sending any requests for corrections or transfer.

If you have other loved ones you would like for me to add just send me their information and I will be happy to do so for you.

Take care....

The comment below isn't mine but I saw how true it was within a short time of being on Find A Grave. I copied this to share from another member's site:

I think it is really a shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some.

Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these are people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.

My apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them.


You may use any of my photos for your own personal use or for posting to your tree on without my expressed consent. You are not permitted to use my photos for commercial usage. If you do use my photos, I appreciate a note crediting me with the photo if you can. If not, no big deal. The whole purpose of posting photos is to breathe life back to the deceased.

I posted the picture. Sometime I will try to take another picture that shows her name a bit better.

William Carl Jackson
Mr Jackson was listed on the Gold Star list in Rush County, KIA in France in 1918. You do not have his memorial part of your Rush County War Casualties Virtual Cemetery. He is buried in the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in France and his Find A Grave Memorial# 55993581. Thought it would be nice to get him added to the list this Memorial Day weekend!

Thanks so much.

Duplicate Memorial
Memorial #78178700 (Eva Morris McElfresh Beaver) was created in 2011. This is a duplicate of a memorial which was created in 2008. The 2008 memorial has her picture and is completely linked with her immediate family.
