Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history for about 20 years. I've taken lots of photos of tombstones, starting back when people I knew thought that was strange. It's amazing to find a whole community of people who think like I do, and who are willing to share.

If I've listed one of your relatives and they're not related to me, just ask and I'll be happy to transfer their care to you.

I also give Find a Grave Staff full permission to transfer any of my Memorials to whomever wants them upon my death. Hopefully this will help eliminate what I call 'Dead Memorials'.

Ida May Melton Branstetter-51007987
I am doing Ellen Manuel's edits for her while she is ill.

On Mrs. Branstetter's death certificate for her birth location it does not list Rio, only Knox County, Illinois. Please send your source for Rio. I will accept your edit and leave the Rio off until you send the source or I can locate it. So far I haven't been able to locate it.

Thank you

Thank you so much for the kind words and for the obituary. I posted the obituary to her memorial page. Sorry it took me so long.

Edward Anthony Weime
I noticed that you manage John Weime's memorial and was wondering if you might know where his brother, Edward Anthony Weime, is also buried? He is the father of our cousin and we would like to add his memorial to Find A Grave. Are you also related to the Weime family of the Rock Island area?
Thanks so much for any information you might share with us!

Would like to add some of that information to the bio section for Mary. If you agree let me know or not if you do not want it shared. BJ

RE: Douglas & Rosa McKenzie
I meant to put a note with the picture that I have photographed every stone in the cemetery. There are a few field stones that I can't place to a certain person, but other than that I know they do not have a stone.

William Job Clifton
I am sorry I cant remember where I got the middle name. It might of been in ancestry under death records. I am related to the Clifton's too. My line is my mother Emma Clifton White 1903-1935. Her father was William Garfield Clifton 1880-1929. His father was George Peter Clifton, 1858-1883. His father was William Job Clifton 1832-1899, and his father was George Clifton 1811-1897.

RE: Isabel Wilson Galt Edit Request
No, I'm not related to her.

The problem with adding the birth year for her memorial is that depending upon exactly what date she was born, her age at death stated only in years leaves 2 years open as possibilities. While I agree that "including just the birth year is better than 'unknown'" I also think 'unknown' is better than the wrong year.
