Find a Grave ID


I am happy to receive information or inquiries on those whose memorials I manage. Requests by relatives wishing that I add to or modify memorials are always welcome. Requests for transfer are welcome, but if I am a direct descendant to the person in question, I would like to keep them in my care.

Family branches I am interested in (along with all the related families):
Duncan families of 1800s Page and Boone counties of Iowa, and late 1800s of Phillips Kansas;
Dunham families of 1800s Nichols, Tioga, New York;
Fendersons of Maine, Lower tier NY state, and Iowa;
Finch families, prior to 1900s, all areas;
Hampton and

I do enjoy my privacy while I research and contribute.
Please leave a public message or use the EDIT on any memorial I have created to contact me. I will try to respond ASAP.

And a heart felt and honest Thank You to the good people of Find A Grave who respect genealogy with complete bios as well as accurate grave listings.

Let me know if I have missed adding you to my Friends list.

This is an unofficial archive of family papers, letters, a few books, and many photos (often these photos have no name associated with them). Quite often, the letters require some interpretation supported by other information, in order to correctly understand the information presented. Because of this, I am reluctant to share very much of the texts verbatim. Similarly, some of the photos have been mislabeled, so unless you know whose handwriting is on the photos, you may not be able to understand which label is correct and which label is not. With some of the oldest Finch and Wait family information, there is some question as to if we are looking at the original document, or a handwritten transcription (and I do suspect the latter of these options). So with the possibility of some of these documents being transcriptions, their source comes into question making it impossible to verify the quality of the information contained within the document without some other way to verify this information.
