Mother Mullaney
Thanks so much for all the info you've put on the Amberg Mullaneys - it is definitely helping me in my family search! 'Mother" Mullaney at Amberg Cemetery is Ida Schaeffer (spelling?) Mullaney, who I believe is also the sister of Amelia Schaeffer Pomoroy Gannon. Ida Schaeffer Mullaney is my great grandmother, my grandmother being Winifred Mullaney Flink, who was born on 1/15/1902.

RE: Amelia Schaeffer Gannon Pomeroy
Thank you for your offer to remove the written text under Amelia and Frank's picture but it lends a historical aspect to the picture and I think we should leave it as is. I copied it on Amelia's Bio due to it being somewhat difficult to read when you look at the picture without enlarging it. Frank Pomeroy was my Great Grandfather. It's a very nice picture of Frank and Amelia (Millie). Your addition of the picture to the page adds so much to the memorial page and is sincerely appreciated. The picture is a very nice picture. When I look closely at the picture and the setting with the unusual chair and the window curtains looking rather sheer and perhaps moving, along with a handsome couple posed for a picture, it's a wonderful trip back in history and a look at family members from the past.
Once again, many thanks!
Kind regards,
Suzanne S.

Thanks for the information on the Redeman's! I am most appreciative for the information you sent to me about the Redeman's and also the picture you posted on Amelia Pomeroy's findagrave page. Great picture! Let me work on this and make some changes.
Thanks again for your help!

Reference the following memorial you created:

You show the burial plot as "Block 277," but this is an incomplete burial plot.

I need at least a section number or letter(s) in order to photograph a grave at this cemetery. The cemetery is massive (over 100,000 graves), and without the full burial plot no one will be able to find the grave for you.

Please let me know if you have any questions in regards to this information.

RE:Dorothy Last Brown
I verified that Dorothy Last Brown is buried at Valhalla Cemetery in Milwaukee. She is buried with her parents. However, when she was buried no one put her name, birth or death dates on the Monument. If you are in contact with her family, perhaps they would be interested in adding that information. In the meantime the photo of the Last monument will have to suffice. It is already posted on her parents' profiles. Diane

Thank you so much for the fantastic photos you got for me at Forest Home cemetery. I truly appreciate your efforts and especially the extra wide shot that shows the entire plot. I do have the contact info for the library there and am in the process of requesting copies of obits for several of my relatives. Thank you again!

RE: Photo taken of Joseph Carollo @ Forest Home
Per your request I took pictures of the graves of Dorothy Brown and her family at Valhalla and Olge Eckert and her husband, William at Graceland. Now I just have to figure out how to put them on Find a Grave.

Regarding the picture at Union Cemetery, the cemetery is in a very bad area of Milwaukee. I was told by staff at Graceland, where the Union Cemetery records are kept, I should not go there alone. There have been muggings of people visiting the cemetery. I have recently found a large number of my own relatives there so I will be going there soon. I will be taking a male friend with me for protection. When I get the pictures I will let you know. Diane

RE: Dudley & Stella Long @ Bayside
You're welcome. :-) Find a grave volunteers have posted headstone pictures of family members that aren't buried close to me. Fulfilling other people's photo requests is my small way of trying to help others like I've been helped.

RE: Elizabeth Fitzgerald
I would love to do that for you. Unfortunately, I live about 2 or 3 hours depending on traffic from Culver City. I live right outside of San Diego. If I get to Los Angeles any time soon I will certainly be glad to go there to take the pictures! I would love to. If I lived closer I would go in the next couple of days. I will let you know if I head that way and can get them....I try to avoid LA if I can help it!

Thanks for the additional information! If you need help getting obituaries please let me know. We have access to many online obituaries starting from I believe 1975 on back and then 2005 till present. Including the good, the bad and down right ugly stories about things that happened in manitowoc WI. I also, go to the library that is a stone throw from my front door. I'm going there tomorrow actually to do some research. Since myself and a few others here are known well for what we do. We won't charge you =) The goal is to get people connect. The above person is not related to me at all. We have a data base of every grave here in manitowoc but we are filling in all the blanks as we can we have over 46,000 so far. Our goal is to keep giving families all the information they can to get there tree's connected etc. So it sounds like we have the same goals. I'm planning a trip to door county in July so if you need some photo's let me know how I can help. Thank you so much again for your help and now another family connection is complete.

Charles Settersten Photo
Hello, Linda - Thank you for the picture of the grave of Charles Settersten. I love it.
Any chance you could get a photo of his wife, Nellie Settersten? I am sure she is buried next to him: she died in 1934 in Chicago but I know she was buried in Marinettte and I assume it was next to Charles.
Thank you so much.
Do you volunteers accept tips or is thanks enough. Please let me know about Nellie.

Thomas and Elizabeth Fitzgerald are my 2nd great grand uncle and aunt. Thank you so much for fulfilling the photo request that I sent in. As I am in California and don't get to WI very much, I can't tell you how much I appreciate that you did this. If I can ever fulfill a request for you in CA please let me know. May you be blessed for your work and thank you again.

First THANK YOU! We have been researching our Backhaus branch going on 3 years now. Thanks to the picture you posted on Alice's memorial we can now see who she is. Thank you!
We were also wondering if you would allow us to use the picture in our family tree. We try always to do the right thing and cite our source for any picture we're allowed to use. Thank again for the picture, and for considering allowing us to use it. S

Marie Copeland at Forest Home Cemetery
Good morning Sir/Ma'am. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck! Ace

Her memorial:

Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials, and the information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request.

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year I successfully completed 200 photo missions at Forest Home Cemetery that had the grave location provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year I have successfully concluded over 1,400 photo missions with over 600 already successfully completed in 2014.

Mission Failure: Impossible

NOTE: Their is no section 276 or 277 in this cemetery. The numbers 276 and 277 are only part of the burial plot. Most likely they are lot numbers not section numbers. Section numbers in this cemetery run from "A" to the letter "T" and the numbers "1" to "70." The full burial plot would look like this: Section F, Lot 276, Grave 1.

I'd like to request you to turn over management of your Page burial sites in the Amberg Cemetery to me.

I am related to all of them -- they are my grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.

I appreciate all you have done to put them on FindAGrave. I would like to add a bit of info to them and link them with their proper relationships.

Thanks so much!

Rita Neustifter
G. Duket - Harmony Cemetery, Marinette County, Wisconsin
The G. Duket listing for the Harmony Cemetery is actually William Duket 33 years, 1 month, 27 days, which is on your photo of the stone that also contains his father Benjamin Dukat. He perished in the Great Peshtigo Fire with his parents October 8, 1871 and is referred to in the Obituary of his brother Joseph Duket. It was hard to find him (the "lost" brother) and I would like to make it easier for other family members to remember him with the correct name from the stone. Your work is so appreciated and I know that it took much care and work to do the wonderful photographs. I thank you whole heartedly!

Find A Grave Memorial# 113607356
This may be the grave of Charles Marquardt, the son of William and Caroline Marquardt. His name appears on the 1880 census for Peshtigo. On the census, the last name has been was misspelled as "Makquet." He was born in 1877. There was another son, Albert who may be buried nearby. I am also looking for the graves of William and Caroline. I suspect that they may also be in this cemetery. Any help would be appreciated.
