Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in "paying it forward" started after I found a record of one of my ancestors on Find a Grave. This led me on an entirely new branch of genealogical discovery. I soon became a volunteer photo taker and then branched out to photographing entire cemeteries.

I think it is important to document history and it is unfortunate that many stones are so worn away that they can't be read, or there is other damage to the stone that makes the documentation of that person's history incomplete.

Find a Grave is an astounding phenomenon! Feel free to use photos I have taken. Please ask if you would like a memorial transferred to you for management or tell me if there is additional info I can add to the memorial. My goal is to improve accuracy and to give someone else that needed leg up in their genealogical research.

RE: Lemly family
I'm sorry but I don't know anything further back than Charles Lemly. Any of my research regarding Lemly's is due to researching Verbeck's in Ohio & Southern Illinois. Charles' wife is Mary E Verbeck. I did do a quick search for Mary V Lemly Mallard and I think that the likelihood is high that she & Charles are related, but I have no information to substantiate it.

I was just notified by Donna Lange telling me my memorial was a duplicate of yours. I checked St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery and mine was the only one. Then I decided to check Pine Eden and you have him there. He is in St. Paul's not Pine Eden. St. Paul's and Pine Eden are side-by-side. The only way to tell them apart is by looking towards the road. Pine Eden has a silver chain link fence and St. Paul's has black fence with blond colored brick posts. I have come across this many times between these two cemeteries. I went last summer and photographed all of St. Paul's and I kept track of where the difference fences where. If you place him in St. Paul's I will delete mine.

RE: Thanks!
I also took a fairly good look for Robert Kessler, since the Kesslers and Turleys (a family I'm working on) were related. No luck yet.
