Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my husband (Steve Patterson) and I are interested in our genealogy histories and enjoy the "detective process" of finding our ancestors. After unexpectedly finding images of my great-grandparents' tombstones on the web, I was thrilled - I'd never seen their tombstones before. This helped us to realize that documenting cemeteries on the web is a wonderful way to help other genealogists find their relatives. We enjoy this tremendously and have started planning our vacations around which cemeteries we want to visit.

I am leaning on the tombstone of Alpheus Osborn, my great-great-great grandfather who lived in Fairfax, Iowa.

If you are a close relation to any people that we have listed and would like us to transfer the memorial to you, please let us know. Be sure to include the CEMETERY NAME where they are located and your FAG MEMBERSHIP NUMBER!

Family names that we are interested in are:
Missouri, Polk County: McDaniel, Phipps.
Kansas, Cowley, Sedgwick, Sumner Counties: Kessinger, Cooper, Green, Brenton, Wilsey, Osborn.
Kansas, Rice County: Greenbank, Crawford, Wilsey.

RE: delete photo Marshal Cook
Thanks, Cathy. It's a beautiful monument, and the photo has now been rotated.

delete photo Marshal Cook
Hi Cathy,

Would you mind deleting the photo you posted of Marshal Cook's weathered monument? The Platteville Historical Society has restored Marshal's monument, and a FindAGrave volunteer has posted a photo of the new monument.

Thank you.

FAG# 37868691 Bean Cemetery
This Find A Grave site is for Eunice Irvine. She has another Find A Grave site in the Langley Cemetery in Ellsworth, KS buried next to her husband. I do not know which is correct, but would you please check it out.

You already did. Ignore the last comment or delete both of these. LOL. if you are related to her you must be related distantly to my husband.

RE: Doris Roberts
Can you cut and paste the Blurton stone Doris memorial?

RE: Doris Roberts
I sent something off to the other manager so hopefully she will coordinate with you. If there are actually 2 stones, Doris can have 2 entries, but like you, I suspect not. I'm not local either. Probably do photo request and/or contact cemetery. Let me know if I can help.

Hannah Fisher grave Monroe Co. Ohio
Hello! I see you have the Hannah Fisher that is buried in Buchanan Presbyterian cemetery of Monroe Co., Ohio identified as the mother of John Robert Fisher. With no dates on the grave, is she definitely confirmed to be his mother? I'd be interested in any info on this grave. Hannah (Smith) Fisher is a 2x great grandmother of mine.
Thank you!
