Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in the Midwest, but have lived most of my life in the south. I was stationed in Germany for a time, and have otherwise done a little travel to Europe and Asia. I spend far too much time on the computer, enjoy a good frappuccino,and I ♥LOVE♥ cats.

My primary family names are Sullivan, McCoy, Withee, Fredendall, Washburn, Nesbit, Schmidt, Petersen, Meyer (Meier), Markman, Pease, Millikan, Donnan, and still counting.

I view the memorials on this site as living tributes to our loved ones. I strive to "reunite" them with family, and if I am able, to add a personal detail or two about them.


You are welcome to use any photos which I have uploaded for your personal family research work, but please do not use them for commercial purposes. The photos I upload are intended as gifts for the families of the deceased with no regard for personal profit, with the exception of the honor of providing them, and I wish for this to be respected.

Photo Allotments

We are allotted 20 photo requests per week. I am requesting for everyone to please use your allotment. Memorials you manage, memorials I manage ~ it doesn't matter.

Headstone photos may assist in providing confirmation of birth and death details, marriage dates, children, spellings, and might even lead to the discovery of additional family members.

Requests fulfillments also provide a small reward to our volunteers who often drive several miles to obtain a photo. I have so often seen where someone will request a photo, and then ask for the volunteer to take a photo of their spouse too, without submitting the request for the additional photo. Why?

It's much easier to request 20 photos in a cemetery that it is for the volunteer to drive out, take them, edit them, caption them, and post them. While I do try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, it is nice if you also request them, so please take the time to request them and please try to remember to use your weekly allotment.

Suggestions, Corrections, and Transfers

I generally adhere to Find A Grave transfer request guidelines, but before requesting, please keep in mind that even a "starter" memorial involves effort to create and I am more than willing to accomplish edits. Also, if a transfer or edit request comes off as pushy, arrogant, demanding, or rude, do not be surprised if you are ignored.

This site was created as a means of helping others, and not intended as a means to criticize, harass, bully or badger. Be kind to your fellow volunteers as we are all trying to achieve the same goal of helping others.

Sheila, thank you for the info on Clarence. I no longer live in the NE area, so I am afraid I don't do much follow up there. I will add your data to his bio and Thank You for doing this. PS - I have 13 cats :), Lynn

George Albert Corliss
Dear Sheila,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History of the 89th Division, George Corliss was a member of this unit. He was severely wounded on 9/19/1918. My grandfather's name was Gunder Anderson, who was also severly wounded on 9/14/1918.

I'm not certain where I'm headed with my project at this time, but I want to eventually publish something. Should I do so, may I use your photo of George Albert Corliss on of him in his WWI army uniform?

Thank you,

Bryan Anderson

May Elizabeth Morton Price
I see that you have added quite a lot of information about May. I am one of her descendants and am interested in knowing more about your relationship. I have additional information I would be willing to share and hope you may know more about May than I do. Please let me know if you are related or are just managing the Findagrave space.

Thanks, Sheila. This is not my Jesse but thanks for letting me know. One of these days, I'll find 'my' Jesse Cole.

Hi :-)
I noticed you'd left a couple tributes on some of my relatives' memorial pages (in 2014) and was wondering if you're/we're related. If not, thank you for honoring our loved ones and for all your contributions!

One memorial was: Carl J.Webster #105264391 & a few of the others he's linked too.
