Bio and Links
Bio Photo The virtual cemeteries on my list that start with an asterick are one memorial in each of the international cemeteries I have worked on. I use this to easily find each cemetery.

Interesting projects I have been working on. (Newest work at top of list):

The Yangtze Incident
On April 19, 1949, British ships were caught in the Chinese Civil War between the Kuomintang (KMT) government of the Republic of China and the Communist Party of China (CPC).

The Sinking of the USS Conestoga A US Naval tugboat that disappeared from outside the San Francisco Bay in 1921, and was never heard from again. It was believed that the ship sank 2,000 miles away from where it was discovered in the Greater Farallones Islands in Oct. 2015.

Murulla Railway Disaster A midnight train collision in the Upper Hunter Valley on Sept. 13, 1926 near Murrurundi, New South Wales. The different cemeteries are interlinked.

Victims of the Sunshine Station Railway Disaster Forty-four people died when one train ran into another in a crowded train station in suburban Melbourne in 1908. Newspaper articles and photos of those killed. Hyperlinks at the bottom of each page will carry you to the different cemeteries involved.

Coranderrk Aboriginal Cemetery, Healesville, Victoria, Australia. Amazing 150 year old photos of the residents of this Aboriginal Station, who believed that Queen Victoria had given the reserve to them in perpetuity.

Dom St. Petri, Bremen, Germany with photos from Sept. 2014.

Goodwood Motor Circuit Cemetery, Chichester, England with photos.

Chichester Cathedral, West Sussex, England with photos.

National Cathedral of Denmark, Copenhagen. With translations.

Sankt Petri Kirke, Copenhagen.

Oude Kerk, Amsterdam is a 14th century church that became an indoor cemetery. Each stone in the floor covers between 2 and 7 graves. I have found a lot of genealogical information and I have photographed both the stone and the area of the church the stone is in; you get a sense of the size of this place. BACK OFF, girls! The silver fox in a number of the pictures is MINE!

China Ashes is my list of people who died in China and the disposition of their ashes was lost. It is especially interesting considering how many of these individuals I could find photos for.

Royal Naval Cemetery - Liu-kung-tao

Holy Trinity Cathedral and the story of the ashes there (or are they?)

Taiyuan Massacre Graves

The Rebellion Cemetery of 1900

Yangpu Public Park

Heping Park

Weihsien Civilian Assembly Center

-Recently I have been including a list of my sources to be placed under the ADD NOTE tab. PLEASE do not post my name and number; my ego just doesn't need that and your bio will just look sloppy. My greatest reward is a beautifully formatted memorial. THANKS, YALL!

Hi -

Not kin to that branch. My Ewings came from Louisiana where they had settled around 1830.
My grandfather, William Ewing, came to Texas in 1903 where he died in Houston in 1948. I was also born there.

Dear Rebecca,

How fun to stumble across this site and to find detailed information about my ancestors!

Find A Grave Memorial# 80045619

I found my great grandmother and just want to let you know that her daugheter Frances Coutts-Smith married Thomas Seeberg (a Norwegian). H name is misspelled on this site.

Both Frances Seeberg and Thomas seeberg are buried at the graveyard Ullern Kirke here in Oslo, Norway. Their twin daughters, Brita Irene Yri (nee Seeberg) and Karin Christine StrÝm-Gundersen (nee Seeberg), born August 8, 1944 in Vancouver Canada and both buried at Ullern here in Oslo too.

Kind regards

Re: Robert Keahey # 81881811
You sent his parents names to be added in Bio. I accepted this note because I found a source in the form of his AZ death certificate & his parents names on there.

Thanks, Diane

Re: Henry Keahey # 80659355
You sent a short Bio for Henry Keahey listing his marriage & children. I ALWAYS appreciate more info for these memorials. However, I noticed on your own Bio you don't want your name listed as a source. I don't add add'l info to people that I'm not related to & don't know unless I can add where I got the info. If you give me some sources to list, I will be happy to add that. If someone else were to contact me with questions, where did you get this info, etc, I would be clueless without a reference to you.

Please don't be offended that I don't add this info without some sort of source. It's just my personal preference. If you want to manage this memorial and add the info, I would be happy to transfer to you. But please don't transfer it back once you've added the info.

Thanks, Diane

Flora Cameron nee Cameron
Hi Rebecca,

I have noticed that you have put Flora Cameron as a spouse of Duncan Cameron who is buried in the Bannockburn Cemetery.
I am just wondering of the source of this information apart from the newspaper article on her death? I know there is a marriage on vic bdm for them both but I'm wondering if you have the right Duncan Cameron?
I have no information for him, no death date, birth date, his headstone is unreadable but I will have a look at it again tomorrow.

Thanks so much for creating his memorial! I have left edits for you to link his parents, and I wanted to let you know my connection and how I know who his parents were. He was my great-grandmother's first cousin, and the family story is that they were in love. Her parents, having left Jackson County because there was so much intermarriage there, disapproved of the relationship, so they did not marry. Instead, he went to China as a missionary, and she married a widower with several children and went on to have several of her own (including my grandfather).

Hi Rebecca

Very interested in your Find A Grave Memorial 112209368 (Eleanor Willis). It doesnít seem to fit with your other posts so I was wondering what your interest was / is.
I have tried unsuccessfully to try and find the graves of three more victims of that raid, a Samuel Reuben and the sisters Elsie and Elizabeth Leggatt (or Leggett). Iíve contacted all cemeteries in the area of Stoke Newington and Whitechapel in my attempt and wondered, if that raid was of interest to you, if you ever had more luck?

Hi Rebecca,
I don't think I am allowed to create a memorial as I didn't actually take the photo, it came from the billion graves website.

Claude Harold Morley 1873-1873
Hi Rebecca,
I believe that Claude's father was my gg grand-father.
I would appreciate it if you would share with me, your source for the existence of Claude Harold Morley 1873-1873.
Kind regards, Robyn Morley

Charles Henry McLeod Bertrand
Hi rebecca

I just made an edit for Charles but by accident I put him born in the state of Queensland. It was actually Victoria (Warrnambool to be exact - finding the counties on this website is always confusing).

Sorry about the error.
