Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.

I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".

I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.

If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.

I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Matthew and Hettie Anderson
Hi Sue Ann, They are my GGG grandparents. Thank you for putting info regarding them. They are at Star Cemetery. I am going to Boise this summer and am interested in putting a small marker on their graves. Do you know who I could contact at the cemetery? I live in Calif. and will only be there 2 days. Would appreciate any help. Matthew and Hettie went to Idaho from Ark. by oxen wagon in 1876. Matthew must have die between 1876 and 1880 because he is not on the census and she is. She died in 1905. I have her obit. They are the grandparents of Nick Villeneuve, the cartoonist from Boise. Dixie

Baby Fahrney #85961029
Hi Sue, The spelling of the surname for this child as you have it is wrong. The cemetery has it as you do but the Death Certificate has is spelled Fahrney. I do believe that this spelling is correct as the father has signed the Death Certificate as Fahrney. The child was stillborn so date of birth and death are the same. Father's name was Fred V. Fahrney and mother's name was Ethel L. Buckston Fahrney.

How strange that you received those edits from me. (and multiple times) The only edit that I actually sent was the one which included the the middle name of Carman (Thank you for adding that.) I think the rest was some kind of findagrave glitch. Sorry bout that! :^) Glad you ignored the rest.

Glenn Smith

Thanks so much for locating Glenn's resting place. A lot of his family lives in the Midwest, and at some point would like to have a headstone done. Your image and explanation are greatly appreciated and is a blessing. Thank you and Happy Easter!
