Bio and Links
The community of Find A Grave is very important in helping find the burial location of long lost relatives.

If I have created a memorial that you would like transferred, please ask. I will transfer outside of guidelines as long as it is not a direct relative of my family members.

If by chance, I have created a duplicate record, please let me know as sometimes the fingers are faster than the mind! It is apparent that hitting the enter button more than once occurs - not realizing that it has already been submitted.

Please feel free to use any photos which I have taken and posted to findagrave, however, I respectfully request that you give acknowledgment of the source.

The Story Tellers

We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us "TELL OUR STORY!" So we do.

In finding them, we somehow find ourselves...

It goes beyond documenting facts. It goes to who I am and why do I do the things I do?...

It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us. That we, might be born who we are. That we, might remember the. So we do.

... I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers. That is why I do my family genealogy...

Nida Link
Please disregard the note about another daughter for Evan and Nida. Senior moment. Rebecca Dowden was the daughter of Dallas and his second wife Myrtle friend.

Nida Link
Please know that I located (at Dekalb Co genealogy annex) the obituary for Nida and her second husband Dallas Christlieb. They were married Nov 2, 1960. Nida and her first husband Evan had one more daughter, most likely born after 1940. Her name at the time of Nida's death was Rebecca Dowden.

Nida Link
I have found many of the same documents that you have. I actually tracked down her parents, too. Her father's grave stone confirmed the spelling of her maiden name.

To clarify why I am leaving the surname on the memorial as is.... she was buried under the surname of her first husband LINK. Ck out Evan Link and see the photo. It is a Find A Grave rule. Copied is the rule from the help section. If Find A Grave were a death registration site, I would agree to use the surname CHRISTLIEB. Find A Grave's primary mission, though, is to register grave sites. Therefore, names must match.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

I will make notes in the bio section. Perhaps between the two of us we can locate a marriage license and confirm the name of her second husband! I think it may be Dallas. It appears he had 3 wives.

Kittredge photos
I noticed your virtual flowers left for the Kittredge family on here - I uploaded some new photos of their gravestones if you want to see them (Charles, Ellen, etc..).
Have a good day.

Sharon, I see your edit request. I would not approve of unlinking his wife. This is correct. I could send proof if you need it. I believe you have the parents correct, but do not have a way to prove it. Do you have documentation for the relationship.
