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

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.

I apologize for my delay in replying back to you. I am related through Verlie's husband, John Arthur Foster. The Lillies connection is just with Verlie.

RE: Lucy O'Bryan 67973612
You are very welcome, I stumbled upon this cemetery in the evening, and the sun was directly behind their marker. That is the reason for such tight cropping. Hopefully someone will be in this area in the early morning when the relief of the stone can be captured. D. L.

RE: Augspurger Cemetery

Thank you for writing back.

It's just that there are two Augspurger Cemeteries, in Trenton, OH. The Augspurger Cemetery on Find a Grave has both names of those in Chrisholm and those of the Augspurger Cemetery on Sycamore Rd.

There should be a soultion to this mix-up.

Augspurger Cemetery

I have found a list of names of families buried in the Augspurger Cemetery in Trenton, OH. The names I'm adding come from the 1914 Church Messenger Vol 1, #12.

I am sure that two names you have listed are not in the Augspurger Cemetery but are buried in the Chrisholm Historic Farmstead which has a family cemetery. The two are Christian Augspurger (1782-1848) and his wife Katherina (1784-1847). This was their home.

Chrisholm is not listed as a Cemetery in Butler Co, OH. I don't know why but will try to find out.

Hi Janice,

You have created a duplicate memorial, not knowing that Anna O'Bryan remarried. Anna's original memorial was made in 2009 and there is a photograph of the headstone.

Original Memorial # 39109005
Duplicate Memorial # 113362603

Anna's 2nd husband was John Gould. As a child, she lived with him and his first wife Harriet. I think with further research, one will find that Harriet was probably related to her parents. One of Thomas O'Byran and Anna Gould's children can be found living with Charles Gould in the 1900 census. Charles was a son of John & Harriet Gould. I know this sounds a bit confusing --- I've documented/sourced it on

RE: Walnut Grove Cemetery, Boonville, Cooper, MO
I'm afraid I can't take credit for piecing the stone together. I simply took a photo of what I found.

As for the other grave, I can only say that over the past few months I visited Walnut Grove quite a few times and attempted to take pictures of every stone in the cemetery (in all honesty, I probably missed a few with some of the "rows" that weren't laid out well). I've already added every photo that was legible enough to identify its owner. There were over 100 that I could not do that for. The only possible way to identify them may be by consulting a rare illustrated book about the cemetery, and as yet, I've been unable to find a copy.

RE: Elvira E (Harper) Dolloff # 137900030
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!
