Bio and Links
Bio Photo 19 Mar 2016 - I am back to work on genealogy but my time is still limited by a new project. I am working to get caught up on Findagrave requests but it will take me some time. I have kept all notification emails I have received and will catch up as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
I have had this happen only occasionally but it is kind of frustrating. If you have your messages disabled and your email address is not displayed - I can certainly understand the need for that.
But if you send me additional information, requests, suggestions etc about memorials I manage, please include an email address so that I can respond. I have received emails where the sender was simply incorrect, or they weren't necessarily incorrect, but there were reasons for what I showed etc. It would be nice to be able to respond to the message. It is only courteous to give the other person the chance to respond. They might have information that you don't. Please don't expect me to just do what you ask if you aren't going to give me that courtesy.


I have been researching my genealogy for over 25 years and am totally addicted. I also work on my husband's lines. I am new to the Greensboro area, but will try to help however I can. I recently moved from Texas to North Carolina. I had lived in Texas all my life until last year's move. While I miss Texas, I love North Carolina too.

I will not transfer memorials for people that I am related to. However, if you send me additional information etc that you would like added, I will be happy to do that.

If I am not related to the person, I will be happy to honor transfer requests to relatives of the person in question. I like for the memorials to be in a relative's care.

When I fulfill a photo request, I normally keep all originals of my photos, which I will share by email if requested. My photos may be used and reposted for personal use and not for profit. I do appreciate when people credit me as the source, just as a courtesy.

Due to continued frustration with Yahoo, I am changing my email address from Yahoo to Gmail. I will be keeping the Yahoo address so if anyone contacts me there I will still get the messages, and they won't give my email address to someone else.

Vivian Hansen and family plot
Hi, Thank you so much for posting the Vivian Hansen listing in the Fishkill cemetery!! This is the Hansen Family plot, and yes Henry (her husband) is there. As well as his sister (my grandmother) Evelyn Hansen Saxe, and her daughter Barbara Saxe. Also Henry and Evelyn's Mother is here (she was the first, passing away in 1927). Their younger brother Raynard Hansen is buried in Epinal National Cemetary, Epinal, France (killed over there in WW2) he was never brought home, although in reading his family letters he couldn't wait to get back. They also had a sister Millie Hansen ...? who I think is buried in New Jersey. Thanks again for this posting, it has been many years since I have been there!! Jon Long (Evelyn Hansen Saxe's eldest grandson). P.S. I'm not sure if Henry's son Howie is buried in this plot or not?? It may have already been full?

Thomas Briggs obit 1899
I sent you this for Thomas Briggs some time ago.

Their suggestion:
Thomas Brings died from old age and pneumonia on Monday last at the home of his daughter Amelia, No. 347 West 44th street, New York city, aged 80 years and 3 months. Mr. Briggs was for many years a resident of Peekskill and will be recalled by our older citizens. When residing in Peekskill he carried on the grocery business in the store known as the E. D. Fuller property, Main street, built by O. V. Crane. He gave up the business in the year 1860. Since then he has made his home with his daughter Amelia. He came frequently, however, to his old home to see the friends of his youth and business life. He is survived by three children, a son, Gilbert B., and two daughters, Amelia and Frances, all of New York city. The funeral services were held at his home in New York on Tuesday evening and were conducted by the Rev. Edmund Lewis. The remains were brought to Peekskill Wednesday, arriving on the 12.42 p. m. train. They were interred at Hillside cemetery in the family bury-ing plot, the Rev. Mr. Lewis officiating.

Bible Inscription
I don't know if this helps, but I have a Bible inscription that reads:
George Faris was born July one {17}76
George Faris was born July the 26,1770
George Faris was born July the 16, 1721

John C. Hollister his Bible present from his stepfather the above {?}

John C. Mallis son of Benjamin Hollister and Elizabeth his wife was born in the year of our Lord 1803 April the 4th

Molly Fisher daughter of Jacob Fisher
Viletty his wife was born in the year of Lord 1807 January the 7th

My name is Shannon Walsh, and the connection seems to be a Myers relation was Lou C. Myers who married Oscar Farris and died in Moline in 1922.

Memorial #83139911
The Find A Grave section under FAQ, Membership/Signing In, “What is a photo request?” mentions: “Many cemetery offices will only provide that information (exact grave location to photograph a possible marker) to relatives of the deceased and will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave location.”

There’s a reason more than 50 requests have not been realized for Woodlawn Cemetery in Green Bay, WI. I suggest you contact the office manager, Mary Lemirande, at (920) 432-6077 or email her at to learn the exact location of William McGee #83139911, especially which Park (section) and names of individuals buried on each side (N,S,E,W) of your individual. Then, go back to your “Request A Photo” and add those “notes” so a photo volunteer can at least take a photo of the grassy plot if no marker is present. The cemetery does not usually have a record if or when a marker was placed at a grave site. Without the specifics, the only other suggestion I have is to remove your request. Thank you!

George & Lillian Davis
Just a note to let you know that the brick markers for George & Lillian Davis buried at LLano Cemetery in Amarillo, Texas were found. I'll jot a note on your e-mail account as well.

Derby Memorial Transfers
Thank you for transferring the memorials for my grandparents, uncles and cousin. I have copies of the obituaries for all of them, as well as mass cards.

To my knowledge, my Derby family does not have any branches in Orleans or Wayne County. Benjamin Derby settled in Jefferson County after the War of 1812 and his sons stayed in Jefferson and St. Lawrence County. However, it is a pretty common name in NYS and you find Derbys throughout the state.

Beatrice Aderholt Miller
Good Afternoon.

I walked Bethel Missionary. I found no other marker for a Beatrice Aderholt Miller other than the one already posted to FindAGrave.

If you look at the memorial for Beatrice Aderholt you will find a lady with the same name, birth and death dates. The only execption... the name stops with Aderholt.

I hope this is the person you are seeking.
