Bio and Links
I have been researching my line for about 5 years now and I have been helped by so many wonderful researchers. I am currently submitting all those interned in the Beauvais - Decker Catholic Cemetery in Polson, MT in hopes many will find their lost ancestors. This is the Old Catholic Cemetery that was renamed. There are may Indian ancestors buried here.

I have been wanting to do this for a long time. It is still a project in progress so if you don't find your relatives right now you may find them a little later. After I walked the cemetery I learned there are more people that have been interned that do not have any markers. I will be listing the ones that do not have markers and I will mark them in the Inscription area under Notes: NO GRAVE MARKER.

Good morning
I go to my contributor page a couple times a week as I get edits from others almost daily. Contributors will send edits and then we are suppose to send a message to let you know where the info comes from. We can send them but then the person who posts the page has to accept them to get the info on the page. I did use the word "links" in my message as that is what myself and most people (who send them to me) say too, which I can see could be confusing. We can send the page numbers to parent's and spouses pages to be linked up. Harry & his family lived in Tazewell Co, Il which is near me. Have a good day!

RE: Harry Hornish

I sent an edit with the links to his parents' pages (their page #'s to link the pages up together). It is on your contributor page under edits for changes or additions and page #'s to link parents or spouses. Have a good evening!

Benjamin Ducharme
While researching his parents (Jean Baptiste Ducharme and Catherine Hu (aka Paul)) I came across the following concerning his birth date:
"The 18 December 1857, we undersigned have baptized Benjamin, born yesterday of the legitimate marriage of Baptiste Ducharme and Catherine Paul of this place. Godfather Andre Lonetain. Godmother Julie Tete Plate (Flathead) [signed] M. O' Reilly, Priest"

Hello Ms. Achenbaugh, My name is Valerie Archey. George Archey was my husbands Grand Father #79132575 and I was hoping I could have you transfer him to me.

Thank you so much

RE: Transfer Please
Please send all transfer requests through the memorial page via the edit tab, please. I do not know who you were talking about, you didn't give a name nor a memorial number...

Yes, I am a relative of Abraham Sipes. My line is from his son Jacob, and then his son Jacob Newborn. My great grandmother is a daughter of Jacob Newborn Sipes. Do you have any information on Abraham Sipes burial location?

RE: John Davis
Sorry, I don't have any information for you. But the Newberry Library is full of genealogy books and if you call they will be happy to help you with your search. When you call ask for the Sam he is the director. He is very interested in Genealogy and doesn't mind looking for things. Another site you might check out if if nothing is there go to Newberry is a very good part of that site. Both are free sites and you may find something there. You might also try If you belong to that is also a great place to look. I hope that his helpful. Thanks for your inquirey.

RE: Alphonsine McIntyre Nordgren
Hi - I'm glad you found the problem. Please take as long as you need to fix it. I'm not related in any way. I just happened to notice it while looking for a different McIntyre and thought you'd want to know about there being two memorials for the one person. It sounded like you may have been seeking some information that was posted on the other memorial. Sharon
