Bio and Links
I started out with an interest in genealogy, which then expanded to include, the wonderful history that can be found in a cemetery.

The information that I have researched and documented, is mainly about my own family and further branches. I am not a cemetery transcriber or memorial hoarder. My interest in Find A Grave, is in making contact with family, in order to share as much information as I can.

I'm always looking for cousins and other relatives. Please send a note to my email address and introduce yourself. There may be photos and information to share.

Beatrice Sullivan

Thank you for informing me about Beatrice' b/d dates/places and her mother' maiden name. I looked her up on for more data and added that also. I connected Beatrice' memorial with her parents' memorials of which I also have.

Since they are on your family tree, do you want me to transfer all three memorials over to your care?

Jaxon Lahner
I am a relative
Hello, my name is Jaxon Lahner. I am 13 years old, and I reside in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. I have come here to say that I believe I am a relative of yours. I am the son of Matthew Lahner, Grandson of Steven Lahner, and Great-Grandson of Derald lahner. Derald Lahner's wife, Gloria, is your aunt. I, just like you, share a love for genealogy. I have a family tree on that has over 600 people on it. That is how I found you. My grandfather, Steven, is your first cousin. He doesn't know much about the Lahner side of the family, and I would like to know more about the large family. I hope you see this and respond! Thanks!

Charles Balow
I found you photo request for Charles Balow at Mt Pleasant Cemetery. He is not among my cache of pictures, pretty much the whole cemetery except stones buried. The old owner did not even want me to brush off dirt. There is a Mary Balow and she did not have a memorial page so I have created a page for her and added a picture.

Is she related to Charles?

Thanks for offering to help on my project. I will email you my summation of the entire project so you can understand it. I'll sent that to your address.

I transferred Bud Rode to you. I will always transfer memorials to those who ask for them.
Unrelated question, but do you by any chance live anywhere near Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, Thorp, Abbotsford, WI? The reason I ask is that I am planning a huge Find A Grave photo project in Clark County, Wisconsin cemeteries for April, May & June and am looking for volunteer photographers.

Thanks, Bill Hart

RE: Thank you
Sue -- My pleasure. I have been going through the Carey Times on microfilm issue by issue looking for information on the Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation. I have been clipping anything related to Catholics in Carey including any obits. Hope they will be helpful.

I'm sorry but we only transfer memorials that are within the Find a Grave Guidelines. Any and all information that you would like added, just use the edit tab and we will add the information.
Thanks for understanding.

Catherine Balow
Hi Sue, I've added the birth and death dates for Catherine and then transferred her to you because she is not of my family. I didn't want to add any of the children's names in case they are still living and to respect their privacy. Regards, Nadeen
