Bio and Links
I always been interested in cemeteries, and family history. My work on my family history started in 1978. I worked most of my life in manufacturing, starting in Production and eventually ending in Quality Assurance. I retired in 2010, after working for 40 years and doing a tour in the United States Air Force, during the Vietnam War. Enjoy checking out cemeteries and working on my family history. On father's side is: Banister, Bracken, Burke, Mappin, Rogers, Williams. On my mother's side there are Peterson, Johnson, Johannesson, Petersdotter, Sill, Swanson, Edwards, Holmes, Schumacher, and Sundlop, just to mention a few. These families are a mixture of Irish and Swedish, which makes for some interesting times. I am a member of the McDonough County Genealogy Society, and was inducted into the "Sons of the Amercian Revolution" in May 2012.

Margaret Green #20187492 in Missouri
Stephen, I am confused by the "EDIT" I just received from you requesting Margaret be linked to her husband Leonard Green. They are already linked and have been for awhile. I did not think that the Find A Grave edit system would even allow an edit for something that was already in the database.
Anyway, thanks for your work on FindaGrave.

Howard Everett Riddell
Howard is also a son of Ora Margaret Riddell. I had him in my tree by his nickname of Bobby. But the census has him listed as Howard. Thanks again for letting me know about these. There was also a brother named Elmer that I forgot about earlier.

RE: Oakwood Cem Photos
Jesse is the son of the couple I had requested photos for. I am not sure about the other Riddell. I'm going to try to find him on Ancestry and see if he is part of this family too and I just don't have him in my tree. I've made both memorials but can not do the photo requests until Tuesday. I'm out of requests until then. Thanks for you help though! I"m happy to find Jesse. There were two other brothers that I know of as well, Lester and Sylvester. Both are passed away now. I wonder if they are at Oakwood...........

I'll photo request as soon as I can.

Thanks again,

RE: Mary Blandin (FAG57708865)
Mary Jeanette Blandin, according to my file, was the daughter of John Blandin and Lucy Ann Ford. Orrin Joseph Blandin was her brother. Orrin Joseph Blandin married Miranda Nettleton. They had 6 children that I know of. This is not our direct line, but I do have some information on them since Lucy Ann Ford was also married to Lewis B. Bute, who is in our direct line. If you need additional information, please send me your email address and I'll be happy to share what I have.
