Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a former professional cemetery and funeral director with an interest in the art and history of cemeteries and genealogy.

My great-grandparents, Melville and Martha White, were long-time superintendents in-residence of Oakland Cemetery, an historic 134 acre memorial garden located near Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio.

My family and I reside in the Kansas City area where I am happy to fulfill photo requests. I do my best to provide clear, legible professional quality photos and you are free to use them in your genealogical research without attribution. I simply ask that you do the same when sharing the information which you gather.

But our God is in the heavens; He does whatever He pleases. Psalm 115:3

RE: Selma Heinzle & Geraldine Evans
Thank you for sending the update and family information. We have added this to her memorial. Since they are your family, if you'd like a transfer to your care, please let us know.

RE: Israel LaPierre
Hi Julie,
I just went into my notes and found that you had sent me a message 3/27/06 about Israel.

Now I know who you are. I transferred Israel and Blanche LaPierre over to you, you'll be able to do what you want. You could have uploaded photos before. Which was a question that you asked me back in 06.

Take care and if you need any help, just ask.

RE: Israel LaPierre
I'll transfer Israel LaPierre over to you, seeing as you are directly related. If I put his wife Blanche on Find A Grave, I'll do the same for her. I'll have to look.

It doesn't matter to me. So far, I haven't connected this family to my LaPierre family.
There were two families in the area.
