Bio and Links
Bio Photo Findagrave has added a wonderful feature that allows memorial holders to update many requests at a time, but only if done via the Edit tab --- so please try that before leaving information on the profile page! This new feature is a true blessing.

Thank you for visiting!

My mother, Mary Edith "Meg" Stevens and I, were/are long-time supporters of Findagrave -- a wonderful site to place memorials and do research. She sadly passed away in May of 2013, but her love of genealogy and helping others find their family, lives on.

One of my interest areas is the American Revolution. Please feel free to visit my page on Facebook and assist in the research.

I also welcome you to follow my weekly blog at GenealogyBank or to follow me on Twitter.

Thank you. I wish you success in your family research.



If you wish to download one of my tombstone pictures, you may do so for personal usage and should give proper credit.

Photographs of individuals absolutely require permission, and if lifted from here without appropriate permission or credit are subject to licensing fees.

Obits under copyright should be summarized, or cannot be posted (many less than 72 years, or longer if a newspaper renewed the copyright.)

Please follow Findagrave guidelines to be within a few generations and a direct descendant. For older ones, please communicate the reason.

As the number of memorials I manage increases, I sometimes elect to transfer without being asked. If you received a transfer and do not wish to manage it, please transfer back.

David Olmstead 107750233
Hi again - just wanted to let you know that I've confirmed that the original cemetery records state that the David Olmstead buried at Elmwood in Burlington passed away and was interred in 1805. Also wanted to let you know that he is the only Olmstead that was interred here. The Sarah Olmstead that you created a memorial for in Elmwood was married to Elijah Olmstead per your bio; they were both buried in Middlebury, Vermont (Vermont vital statistics records). In any case, no one named Sarah Olmstead was interred at Elmwood. - Deb

Thank you so much for amending the spelling of Roxanna's first name and for adding her middle name to her Memorial. I also so much appreciate your including her obituary on your Memorial for her.

Norvall Cemetery
You have Norvall Cemetery as being in Scott Co., Indiana - only 1 grave with an added obit.

The obit plainly says Shelby Co. NOT SCOTT CO.

Could you please correct this and remove it from Scott Co.Cemeteries.
