|Bio and Links|
I am all about family history. I want to know the story behind each person. Not just dates and places. Why were they there? What did they do everyday? These are the things that keep me up at night..... |
If I have a memorial, that is your family, I am willing to transfer or add to it, whichever you prefer. Mistakes happen, I'm only human, please help me by correcting me if you see one.
I have photographed all headstones (with the exception of the ones located in the George Russell Memorial Building) at the Odd Fellows-IOOF, the Masonic, the Old City, the Veteran's, Elks, Catholic, Knights of Pythias, Burns Memorial Garden, part of the New City in Elko, NV, and the Metropolis Cemetery. And added memorials for them. I have not added all the photos because of time but will add any that are requested. And I have now finished the Carlin Cemetery and will work on adding memorials.
**Exceptions: I have not posted memorials for babies or small children born after 1990. Not that I don't want these precious ones to be remembered but because that is still fresh and I don't want to hurt anyone still grieving. If I did make a memorial and you would like it taken down please just let me know. Everyone grieves differently. I find comfort in findagrave but that is not the same for everyone. I don't wish to cause harm. Only bring peace and families together.**
I have finished taking photos at the New City, and the Elko County Cemetery, also the Lamoille Cemetery. I will do the same with them, add the memorials and add photos as I get time or if requested.
Please use the photos I have taken. I have only one family member buried in Elko County. So I do this for those that are searching for their family.
PLEASE: When sending in corrections please, please add the memorial ##'s for those you are wishing to add. It is so time consuming to look up every number. Thank you.
And remember kindness gets you farther than rudeness...
I will help with obits and minor research here in Elko if asked. Please send me an email. It is easier if I have it there. List as much information as you have and what you are looking for. If I have to go to the courthouse there might be copy fees. However most of my work can be done free as I use digital files and go to the museum where I can scan. I loved raogk.org and was able to help lots of people. I have been helped so much with my work that I love to pay it forward. :D

|history4sure||RE: Jeri E.Troupe McGraw|
Thank you for the correct location (her parents are there also) - I am not really a fan of Billion Graves, because the data is so sparse, but I like to see a gravestone image if there's not one showing on findagrave.
The cemetery names & locations are so different, can't see why a photographer missed that. I try to work from stones and death records, but even then, errors are made.
Thanks for the help! ~Cheers & Happy New Year, Shirleen
Thank you so much for the beautiful headstone photo. And thank you for going to the trouble.

Thank-you for the outstanding pic...!

Thanks very much for looking. Too bad he has no headstone. He was an interesting character. He prospected in Jarbidge (never very successfully) with his twin brother. There are photos of his brother and him in our Town Hall, and there are remains of one of their cabins at about 9,000 feet in the mountains near Jarbidge.
|Debi B||edit request for Josephine E Kane|
My name is Debi Burress, one of the memorials you did is my Aunt. I submitted an edit about 3-4 weeks ago and the edit has not been accepted yet. I was wondering if you could possibly help me since you submitted it.

The edits I requested are as follows:
Name: Josephine Elizabeth Keegan-Kane
Father: Patrick Keegan - memorial # 168943703
Mother: Mary Green Keegan - memorial # 168943928
Spouse: William "Bill" Kane - memorial # 77553638
If you can possibly help - I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you in advance.

I had actually sent you another message saying to disregard. It was my mistake and you had it right all along. I misread it. It was one stone with two people on it. I posted the picture on both memorials. Sorry about that!!!
|Trevor Meade||Last Message|
Disregard my last message. I read the stone wrong. Photo still posted in each memorial.

Hi, This is in reference to a couple of your memorial entries for the Elko IOOF Cemetery. I went and found the headstone. The memorials of Joseph Berrueta 60550872 and Joseph John Berrueta 60550860, appear to be the same person once you look at the headstone. I have posted the photo in each memorial until you decide to combine it, change it, or leave it as is. Thanks for all of your work in Elko County.
I entered in the places for birth and death and added the first name for Inez. She went by Inez and if I put that in nickname I don't know how that would look. Mackley was her 3rd husband and was interned with that name. She was a Prunty first and the other husbands, first Shively and then West. Interesting was the Shively name shows up on a census record as the person taking the information down. Thank you for your efforts in this work and labor of love. Would ask if you could kindly find the picture for Virginia Inez Prunty Mackley number is in the subject line. Thank you. I wish I could put your pictures in for you. I am in California but still have inhabitant property up in Charleston. Miss being up there in the summer. take care.
