Bio Photo **PLEASE Note**
If you are requesting an edit or a transfer and I am not related, I will gladly do so, however, you must go to the memorial page and click on suggest/edit and request from there. I cannot hunt down the memorial and then hunt down your member number. I have had 2 requests that I cannot fulfill, since the person has their messages disabled and did not give me the wanted memorial numbers.
You have my permission to copy ANY of my photos for your genealogical and personal use.
I totally enjoy sharing :)
***Why Find-A-Grave***
I do this mainly for genealogy purposes and to dedicate memorials to the ones who have been lost. The information is of PUBLIC record, often found in newspapers, court reords or cemetery records or first hand knowledge from generation family members. This information and memorial will be put in by someone eventually, if not by me. If I have listed a family member of yours and is not related to me and you wish a transfer, please request the transfer by clicking the edit/suggestion button to the right of the memorial. I will transfer the memorial to you and if you wish removal, then you, yourself, may go through the removal process, as it has become difficult to remove them, per Find-A-Grave's new system. Even when a duplicate is made, the removal of the duplication now has to have a reason for it and get an approval before it will be automatically removed by the service. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes, but I am not the one who makes the rules & have no control over the process.****

I am Karen and I have, so far, traced my heritage to the year 890, Flamsted, England, to my 26th great grandfather, the Roger de Toeni, aka, de Tosny, families.
I am a grandmother of 17, married for 35 years to my best friend. We both enjoy genealogy.

RE: Sarh Ellen Baldwin at Bradford
Although Sarah is in my database she's probably not directly related to me. I have over 77,000 people in my database.

Cato Smith - Chestnut Grove Cemetery, West Chester PA
Hi Karen! I was hoping you could help me with some information you posted on Cato SMITH's grave memorial (#30468372). You referenced his obituary; I was wondering if you could provide me your source for that obit. I am a historian and I'm compiling information on American slavery and suicide. Any info would be helpful. Thank you very much!

Hello Karen Mattson Yeoman 46783224

Are you the person who transferred Harriet Powell
to our care?
I went back to Harriet's memorial and your name was gone only the original creators name was there Betty from Oregon.
I wanted to thank you for your kindness of the transfer. We appreciate your time to help us with our relative.
Find A Grave is a wonderful site but only because of people like you. Thank you.

Marion Y Williams
Hello...I notice that we have a common relative in Marion Williams. You wouldn't happen to know if Willard, her husband, is buried in the same cemetery in Coatesville? (I assume he probably is)
Willard was my grandfather's oldest brother, and nobody in the family can say for sure where he is buried. Thanks
