Born and bred in Sioux City, IA. having bought a house - have concluded I'm never leaving this town.
I enjoy wandering though cemeteries taking photos. I find it comforting for my own losses including my father. His was the first memorial that I posted on here other than volunteer photos.
When not tromping (I know the proper term is 'graving') through cemeteries, I enjoy traveling (every set of vacation photos I have though have pictures of cemeteries in them). Lately I've been into going on cruises with both family and friends. I also enjoy sitting around a campfire or drowning worms.
My primary research is on PATTERSON, DELAUGHTER, ALLARD, SHAVER, DORENBUSH, and the entire town of Jefferson SD (If someone goes back a couple generations, lives in Jefferson and is Catholic, I'm most likely related to them)
