Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is a passion of mine from when I was very young. My grandmother told me wonderful stories about our families and I have been doing family history for over 30 years. I have traveled all over the world photographing family graves and writing books on my different families. I need another 25 years to finish everything I have started!

RE: Rose Levenson
Thank you! What is the title of the book? Also, I noted you didn't have her grave. According to this index:, she is buried at Oak Woods Cemetery, plot W 04 17, Chicago, IL. I hope I can get a photo of the tombstone.

RE: Clarence Smith
I have been going through Montlawn row by row adding memorials and photos. If I see something that doesn't look right, I pass it along! No problem at all.

My pace has picked up, the rate I'm going, I'll have the cemetery done by around April or May!

RE: Hattie Schoonover
I will transfer her to you but it has been so long I don't remember her memorial number. Please go to the memorial you want and using the edit button ask for transfer. I will send her along.

Re: Rose Levenson
I would like to know where you found the photo of Rose Levenson. Her widower married Kate Lubin in 1904 and Kate raised Rose's children with her own children. I just found that Rose's maiden name was Lubin and I now suspect she was Kate's sister. I've been researching the Lubin family for my cousins.

Elizabeth Fullerton Montagu

Ms. Montagu is buried next to William Willard Crocker in Cypress Lawn Cemetery, Colma, San Mateo County, California. I took a photo today and uploaded it.

RE: Mickle
Sorry to hear about the hospitalization. There is certainly no hurry on anything; take your time. I will be happy to supply more information on anything you may have a question about.
Regarding Ogden Mickle vs. Mickle Ogden, I have found that Samuel Mickle Ogden is recorded in the 1860 and 1880 census as S. Mickle Ogden, and in 1870 as just Mickle Ogden. So it appears he mainly just used his middle name.
