Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have loved recording my family history for about 40 years and teaching the last 15.

My Children's PATERNAL: Byington, Carr, Molland, Holkins, Gallaway, Norton, Terry, Williams, Hall, Frisbie, Swetland, Butler, Donaldson, Piper, Little, Burdick, Munsee, Moore Also: Kofoed, Bell, Jensen, Munch, Christensen, Booth, Panting, Crook, Madsen, Larsen, Garwood, Davies, Kerby, Lane

My Children's MATERNAL: O'Bryan, Whitworth, Kochendarfer, Schluneger, Mize, Robinson, Hall, Copeland, Rogers, Philips, Baer, King, Pratz, Lebo, Nooner, Reynolds Also: Harper, Gowan, Smith, Putnam, Brock, King, Boniface, Pitcher, Spooner, Griffin, Brassell, Allen, Dolby, Robbins, Murray

Some of the memorials I manage are family, but it never hurts to ask to have a memorial transferred. Please include your relationship to the deceased when you make your request by using the EDIT button on the memorial you wish to have transferred. If you are related in any way it will probably be yours, unless it has been promised to another (or my family), in which case, the closest related person will get it. In my opinion, the Golden Rule trumps the guidelines, and hoarding is just stingy and small. I firmly believe family should be with family. Thanks for understanding.

Mistakes happen, I'm famous for finger errors and welcome any additions or corrections. When asking for a memorial correction, addition, or transfer, PLEASE use "Edit" then "Suggest A Correction" on the memorial you wish to have updated instead of posting message's on this page. Thanks

Most photos I add have been sent to me with permission from others over the last 40 years and will try to credit them when possible. If you find a photo that you claim as your property I will remove it at your request. My objective in adding photos is to honor these people and to aid fellow researchers with their genealogy, never for profit. You may use my personal photos as long as you give me credit and you are in no way profiting from them.

See this website for pointers for taking headstone photos.

I am very thankful for all the work those who create memorials have done on the behalf of others, like myself, so we may pay respect to our deceased family members, no matter how far.

I would also like to thank all of the wonderful volunteer photographers. You are doing a great service to digitally preserve these cemeteries, helping to preserve the memory of those that have gone before us.

"Thank you" seems such small words, considering the time, effort, and personal sacrifice that goes into making this great site.

Hi Janice, here is the email exchange below. It looks like she is not at Mt. Hope in Solon.

Please double check the last name. I do have 4 graves with that last name but they are all empty and purchased in the late 1990's. Thanks!

Hi Sheila, I am hoping you can help me with one more grave location. I couldn't find this one at Mount Hope Cemetery:

Elvina E. Harper Dolloff
Maine, USA
Feb. 21, 1907

Can you check her burial location at Mount Hope Cemetery and whether she has a marker?

Thank you very much!

Hi Janice, you're very welcome! I sent a question to the Solon office that oversees the cemeteries and will let you know as soon as I have a response.

Nictaux cemetery
I sent Bob a message as he maintains the memorial for Parker Vidito. The death date on that stone is wrong. Parker died in 1900. Her is an obit or him.
Messenger and Visitor - Wednesday, 21 November 1900 - Page 13 -

Vidito - At his late residence, Bloomington, N.S., Parker Vidito, aged 93 years and 6 months. He was for many years a consistent member of the Nictaux Baptist church. Beloved by all who knew him, he peacefully entered into rest. The funeral services were conducted by his pastor and attended by a large company of relatives and friends.

Hepzibah O'Bryan Herriott
Cecilia Osbourn O'Bryan :)
Dear Janice,

Hello , my name is Hepzibah O'Bryan Herriott(but I go by the first name 'Tuireann'. It was a disagreement over first names between my parents..Hepzibah is on all my legal documents but I was baptised Tuireann..!).
My Great-Great-Grandmother from my grandfather's paternal side (my mother's father's grandmother, on HIS father's side) is Cecilia Ellen Osbourn O'Bryan.
My grandfather was Leslie Leroy O'Bryan, who was the son of Francis Roland O'Bryan - who was the second child of Cecilia and Henry O'Bryan, Jr.

I am writing to you today because I am trying to join the DAR and I have all of the documentation going back to our patriot Philip O'Brien but it has been asked of me if it is possible to find a clearer photo of Cecilia O'Bryan's grave if possible. Or another document showing details of her marriage to Henry Jr. and her death. Would you by any chance have a clearer photo of her grave? Or any other records of her death? I hope these questions are o.k. - I am new to the genealogy community ; I do not know of the correct etiquette in question asking !
Thank you so much if you can give me any direction and help :) Also - how are you and I related -!!?? It has been so wonderful meeting relations through my collecting of documents for the DAR; my favorite part of the search!
Thank you again Janice
Warm Regards,
Hepzibah Tuireann.

that is a great website, I use it often.
Yes, of course, you have my permission to use the photos or other info you may need. Thank you it will make it much easier for those who are trying to locate their long lost relatives.
What a great project you are doing.
Good luck

Carolyn Lamberth Johnson
Sylvanus Griffin b. 1875
You mention on his memorial that he may have been the one who married someone named Nora, as shown on his WWI registration card. He was, indeed. Her name, I have found and a family member has verified, was Canora/Nora Dumas. You can find a death certificate on Family Search for her. Harris County, March 13, 1949. She is buried in the Angleton Cemetery. I just did an edit to connect the two of them on Find A Grave. I have still not found where he died or is buried. They had a child in 1924 and in the 1930 Galveston census, she is shown as a widow. So, have to assume he died between those two dates...

Sure, as long as you use grandma's book as your source.
