Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired elementary school teacher of 32 years; and a novice at researching the genealogy of my family. I have only just begun to research graveyards to locate family members, a new hobby that my family does not share. I enjoy collecting bells, snow globes, Susan Lordi's willowtrees, roosters, Kim Anderson figurines and teaching memorabilia. My husband and I celebrated our 45th anniversary this year. We have two adult sons, two daughters-in-law, and have welcomed our ninth grandchild. My family has experienced the terrible loss of our eldest grandson, Lance Cpl Christopher Shawn Baltazar, Jr who was KIA in Afghanistan on Sept 3, 2009. This terrible pain has forever changed our family; with the loss of both of my in-laws and the loss of my father January '09, my mother December '09 and the loss of our beautiful 19 year old grandson, I feel a real sense of urgency in recording the facts, dates, and locations of the people in our family; so all this has become much more important to me. I welcome any help in learning how to research genealogy and locate the graves of lost loved-one. I have hit a few stumbling blocks in finding some lost family members. I guess when I finally record all the graves I have a personal connection to I will look for a forgotten graveyard to document. My husband continues to remind me not to forget to live among the living while I am researching the dead.

Hi Terry,

I was looking at Clara Delores #35223578. Is her last name Delores, it seemed strange reading her husband's page and the tombstone like that is her middle name. Thanks for checking for me!

Regards, Clete

Maryette Kelley
I am currently working on 1st Presbyterian using records from 5 different sources over time. Maryette M Kelley 39996312 is not buried there.

I see another entry in Schenectady for the same person, in Schenectady Memorial Park 39996107. Since both entries were made by you it should be an easy fix! If you move 39996312 with all the links to the correct cemetery, then delete your other entry it will be less work.

(I sent email on June 15, but Find A Grave email has been acting strangely)

RE: Virginia E Bros
Hello, Yes I did find her in the Lakewood database and I've just added her to Findagrave. Her death date was 1986 however. The only William Bros listed in Lakewood is older, died in 1928 (he's in the same lot, so perhaps is a father or uncle to Ernest.)

RE: children of Sampson Sammy Deckard
Hi Terry,

My Mother ran into Juanita Deckard Bray at the grocery store. Juanita was married to Ernest Paul Bray (buried Valhalla) the son of Ada Deckard Bray. She said that Ada and Ingram are buried in a Cemetery in New Richmond, Coal Creek twp, Montgomery Co. Indiana. That was where they lived. She could not remember the name of the Cemetery. At least this will give us a little more to go on.

I am transcribing the entire Wheeling Township cemetery burials from the master list and cannot find this name on our list.
Are you sure they might not be in the Wheeling cemetery.
