Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I manage someone you are related to, send me a note using the "EDIT tab." I will transfer the memorial to you if I'm not a descendant.

However, if I've already completed extensive research on the deceased, by adding links and a biography, there is no need for a transfer. I myself use the great Find A Grave feature "Virtual Cemeteries." This is a wonderful way to keep track of family memorials managed by others. And anyway, why would you want to ask for a transfer if the memorial has an accurate biography and links? I'm sure you would not wish to take credit as author of the biography already written by me. 😀

I'm happy to add additional "sourced" information to memorials I manage, and grateful for any corrections to errors I may have made.

Please use the EDIT tab if you find an error in my research, or if you wish to add information. If your edit can be verified with records, I will include a link to your profile page, and give you credit for corrections or additions.

I'm Grateful to Volunteer my time 😀


Here is a nice website for calculating the birth date from stones that list only death date and age at death. Before you use the calculator, please read the fine print at the bottom of the page, which begins with; While doing some testing on this with 30+ death certificates already containing a birth date, death date, and age, I have found it to be only 39% accurate. It was 1-3 days off 38.5% of the time and more than 3 days the remaining 22.5%

Lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.

Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.

Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life; not death, of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering, always.

William Britt, Kentucky
Hi Shari, I hope you can give me some advice.

My 2x Gr Grandmother Delilah J McNary, born 1806 in Kentucky. She married in Putnam Co., Indiana 1826 to Handy Britt. records show her father was from Kentucky. They named their 2nd son William O. Britt. I think after Delilah's father. I do not know where in KY they were. I found a William McNary in the McNary cemetery that you listed.
I appreciate the work you do and thank you for any advice you can give me.

Thank you

RE: Anna Wenzl: 40174339
Obits are my favorite, since they usually have family members listed and can be linked if they're not living. There was a time when obits were considered "public" material, everything gets abused and ruins it. Privacy is a big issue so living members need to be considered. I like to add at least first names of children. If I remember they had way more then the 3 listed. :)

May Angie Miller Dodge and William Morgan Oliver Dodge
Hello Shari,
William Morgan Oliver Dodge is my 3rd great-grandfather, and May Angie Miller Dodge is my 2nd great-grandmother. I was wondering (hoping) if you have a picture of, or know where in Greenwood Cemetery, May Angie Miller Dodge headstone is located? Also, do you have a copy of William Morgan Oliver Dodge's death certificate? Any help you can give me would be GREATLY apprecited! Thank you!

RE: Gay Tiernan: 36941009
good afternoon!

Sorry for the delay in responding. I will go back and check my sources. I admit I believe her birthdate was from the bolling ancestry page. As for her birthplace, I believe it was from a Gay Mont research book at the Garden Club of Virginia but I will confirm.

Certainly you can remove them until I verify them if you like.

RE: Florence Gottula: 39920613
No need to transfer her to me ... I'm not related, either. I'm working on the Sacher and Fencl family names for a relative of my husband ... and that's where the Gottula name comes in. I usually just send the links as I come across obits. and marriage records.

RE: Florence Gottula: 39920613
Yesterday there were two spouses for Samuel Gottula, and they both showed maiden name of (Sacher). I created the memorial for Florence Genevieve (Sacher) Gottula, and I sent the message to you for correction. I see now that the younger Florence has been changed to maiden name Ullman, and she is linked to Bernard Gottula. Thank you ... the incorrect entry has been corrected!
