Bio and Links
I first heard of Find A Grave a few years ago when I began researching my family's history. I was looking for the grave of one of my relatives. My brother told me to try Find A Grave. I decided to become a volunteer to help others find their loved ones as well.
I am located in Crow Wing County, MN. Most of my work is in the Brainerd and surrounding areas. Feel free to contact me with questions, corrections, requests or bios.

Many of the bios listed on the memorials I manage are obituaries. For my family members, however, many of the bios were written by myself based on first hand knowledge of the individuals and the historical records relating to their lives and deaths. Any obituary posted will be cited with the publication information. If no citation is given then it is one I have written. Please do not repost them to another website without asking. Thank you.

I am quite willing to transfer memorials I have created to direct descendants, even if they do not fall with in the four generation rule. Each memorial represents a person, a life lived, and a loved one laid to rest. Let us not forget to treat these memorials with honor and respect.

Eliz Gilmore

They are not both buried at the same cemetery. She is buried at Greenwood cemetery in Galena, Il

He is buried at Old City cemetery in Galena, Il

The source you used is fine as far as they go, but it is a secondary source uploading information from another secondary source that no one checks for errors.

Charles and Murth

Sorry for the very late reply on your requests. Due to lack of time and so many requests it is hard to complete them all in a timely basis. You asked me for grave marker photos for Charles and Murth Deshler at Crown Hill Cemetery in Wheat Ridge, CO. I do not have a photo for Murth. I do have one for Charles and his wife, Mettie which I have added to their memorial.

Hi Karen - I am not related to Clifford. He was the first husband of Nancy. I am the daughter of Nancy's second husband, Holger. I am more than happy to transfer the memorial over to a relative. Carin
