I live in Meridian, Ada County, Idaho, but was originally raised in Eastern Idaho near Shelley, Bingham County. I graduated from high school and college in Idaho and was in to the Air Force for 14 years. My wife and I have worked for the State of Idaho since 1989. I have 3 sons, 1 daughter, 1 daughter-in-law, 1 grandson (deceased) and 2 granddaughters.
I enjoy working on family history projects.
If anyone wants to take over one of my interments because they are a closer relation than myself or my wife to the deceased, please contact me and I'll glady transfer or delete my internment. Please advise if you wish to use any of my photos for your own memorial internment. If you don't, I'll delete all photos as well. If you do plan to use my photo(s), copy them to your PC and then add them after you've created the internment. At this point, they'll be credited to you. All I ask is that you credit my photo(s) with my name in the bio area near the end.
Mace Family Dann, I saw you on a number of the Mace family sites and then on this one Marjorie, on flowers it said you were a grandson. I am helping my friend do his family history and he is related to her as a 3rd cousin. - Nancy Berntson

Rosary Kirby/Miles I changed her last name, but you can put it as you want. The lower left hand side of orbit was unreadable, so please fix the names of those people if you know them. Thanks for letting put this orbit to rest. Nuff @ 46998088
Rosary Lloyd Kirby Miles I would still like to add an obituary for this lady. She is not related, and I would send her back to you. I just have all these older orbits that I would like to give a home. Thanks, Nuff @46998088.
# 11817977 I would like to add an obituary for John Kirby in the Grace, Idaho cemetery. I would then transfer hime back to you when I am finished. I am not related, but was given to brown sacks of obituaries and am trying to get them taken care of instead of throwing them away. Thanks, Nuff, at # 46998088
No, I am not related but have photographed (almost all) the Joplin cemetery near my area. I have requested my own family grave photos in areas far away and this is the best way to pay it fwd or back.
In working Joplin and having friends who are from here, I have met families and hear about those whose names are in Joplin cemetery, so sometimes I feel like this is my family, too.
The sexton is a wealth if information, especially since her father was sexton as well. She remembers when her dad replaced many stones himself or put up markers where none had been placed originally. A few of these are misspelled or are actually in the wrong place.
Baby Adams/Abbot is one of those. The sexton remembered the burial but not the exact burial spot. This baby was buried with his grandparents so he placed the marker right there. I wondered if the marker was the right one and did a bit of research.
The Joplin family is an old one in this area and long reaching family. I hope someday one of them get involved in findagrave and take management of their relations memorials.
Meanwhile, we keep posting the memorials and keeping the memory of those like this little one.
