Bio Photo **PLEASE Note**
If you are requesting an edit or a transfer and I am not related, I will gladly do so, however, you must go to the memorial page and click on suggest/edit and request from there. I cannot hunt down the memorial and then hunt down your member number. I have had 2 requests that I cannot fulfill, since the person has their messages disabled and did not give me the wanted memorial numbers.
You have my permission to copy ANY of my photos for your genealogical and personal use.
I totally enjoy sharing :)
***Why Find-A-Grave***
I do this mainly for genealogy purposes and to dedicate memorials to the ones who have been lost. The information is of PUBLIC record, often found in newspapers, court reords or cemetery records or first hand knowledge from generation family members. This information and memorial will be put in by someone eventually, if not by me. If I have listed a family member of yours and is not related to me and you wish a transfer, please request the transfer by clicking the edit/suggestion button to the right of the memorial. I will transfer the memorial to you and if you wish removal, then you, yourself, may go through the removal process, as it has become difficult to remove them, per Find-A-Grave's new system. Even when a duplicate is made, the removal of the duplication now has to have a reason for it and get an approval before it will be automatically removed by the service. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes, but I am not the one who makes the rules & have no control over the process.****

I am Karen and I have, so far, traced my heritage to the year 1029, Flamsted, England, to my 26th great grandfather, Ralph De Toni and Isabel Montford.
I am a grandmother of 15, married for 33 years to my best friend. We both enjoy genealogy.

Cato Smith - Chestnut Grove Cemetery, West Chester PA
Hi Karen! I was hoping you could help me with some information you posted on Cato SMITH's grave memorial (#30468372). You referenced his obituary; I was wondering if you could provide me your source for that obit. I am a historian and I'm compiling information on American slavery and suicide. Any info would be helpful. Thank you very much!

I wanted to thank you for your kindness of the transfer. We appreciate your time to help us with our relative.

Hello...I notice that we have a common relative in Marion Williams. You wouldn't happen to know if Willard, her husband, is buried in the same cemetery in Coatesville? (I assume he probably is)
Willard was my grandfather's oldest brother, and nobody in the family can say for sure where he is buried. Thanks

RE: Eva Matilda Garnett
Hi Karen,
Thanks for the heads up on the edits. I accepted them and, if you would like any transfers, just let me know and how you are related (or family friend, etc). If I'm not related I pretty much will transfer.
Have a safe holiday weekend ~

Peterson family
I came across your post of George and Adelia Peterson, memorial #18246385. I thought they might be my 3x great grandparents especially since their marker says they had a son named John, but upon further research it doesn't fit. My great grandmother's name was Katherine "Katie" Virginia Peterson born c. Sept. 1, 1871 in Cecil County, Maryland and married Charles "Challie" Benjamin Franklin Aldridge born in Nov. 26, 1862 Baltimore, Maryland. Challie and Katie were my PopPop's parents and according to the papers I have that he left of the family tree, Katie's father was a John Peterson (possibly born in Elkton c. 1849?) and her mother was Martha. I know for sure that Katie had two sister's Mary (m. William Wenlock) and Belle, possibly born in Cherry Hill. I believe Challie, Katie, Belle, William, Mary, and Martha all ended up in New Jersey. I'm not sure if John did. I know there are many, many Peterson's in that area of Maryland near where Katie Peterson was born. It just makes sense that her parents have to be there somewhere in Maryland, but I have had an any luck. Do any of these names or does any of this information sound familiar to you. Of course I don't expect you to do my research, but I was just wondering if you had come across any of them. I would appreciate any information that you have that could get me past this hump.
