Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for several years and have taken several pictures of my family and relatives grave stones. I am a retired pastor and my wife and I do a lot of traveling. I have many hobbies but photography probably tops the list even though some pictures don't come out the way I want. When I take a picture I try to make it as readable as I can and try to post all that is on the stone. I'm not just trying to post to get a large number but to help others with genealogy as I have been helped.
I have found a lot of newspaper articles and the funeral brochures that my parents had of people that I didn't know but I have posted several. I would be glad to help in any way that I can. I will transfer your relatives or close friends if they are not my relatives.
You may use any pictures that I have posted for genealogy purposes only.

There is a lady who is putting newspaper clippings of obits and pictures out of the newspaper in the picture section. I just started to find a lot of them. they are in this one and I have asked her to remove or at least crop the picture.
You can move the picture down so it isnt the first picture showing. I have a long obit on Albert Bassler which Im getting ready to type out. Just thought you might want to know?

Ethel Elizabeth Wright Goss

He and his 1st wife are on a double headstone. A headstone photo is on his memorial, but isn't on her memorial.

They both need to be moved to the cemetery where their tombstone is set.

Do you know where the cemetery is that Bro. Goss was buried? I saw your picture of his headstone and was wondering if you knew.

Bessie Zelma White
There is no mention of Rev. Homer E. (Eli) White's wife, Bessie Zelma Smith White. Is she buried with or near her husband in Graceland Cemetery, Decatur, Illinois? She is also not listed in that Cemetery. His Memorial No. is: 64838857. Thank you for your time & effort on my behalf. Sincerely & respectfully Carol Jean Frey at (near Dallas, Texas).

Hello Again,

I recd a message that my edit for this memorial was accepted this morning. I just checked and see August Joe Simon is now listed twice as her spouse. Once of course is enough!

Are you willing to transfer her memorial to me? I would like to incorporate the info I've found in my research of her life into her bio. If you want me to return the memorial to you, I will transfer it back to you when I finish.

Thank you for working with me on her and her husband's memorials.

Simon Family - Pana - UPDATE
Hello Again!

I just tried to link Mathilde Josephine Simon to August Simon and Find A Grave is not allowing me to do it. So---it appears you must link these 2 who were indeed married.

August: 104678520
Mathilde Josephine: 104678638

Please see my message below from a few minutes ago and thanks again for your help.
