Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my own family and volunteering for the Logan County Genealogical and Historical Society now for the past few years. I love wandering through cemeteries and will be willing to take photos of headstones in my town (or within 20 mi. or so) to help other researchers.


PLEASE ASK ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO TRANSFER A FRIEND OR RELATIVE. I ALMOST NEVER HAVE ANY PROBLEM DOING THIS!

The following poem, which I wrote, has gotten a lot of attention lately from those wishing to share it with others. Please know that I would be honored if you did. You can use my name as author if you like.

THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER


Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone


***PLEASE NOTE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS!!!! THANK YOU!!***

Find-a-Grave Friends: Due to several circumstances, I have been delayed at fulfilling transfer memorials and corrections/connections. I plan to begin working on these today to complete these as requested. Thank you all for your patience -- you have not been forgotten -- and although I won't be notifying you individually that the corrections are made, please rest assured that they will be done ASAP. I appreciate your patience! -- Jan
**************************************************

**************************************************ACCIDENTS SUCH AS DUPES HAPPEN, BUT *PLEASE* MAKE SURE YOU CHECK FOR AN EXISTING MEMORIAL FIRST BEFORE CREATING A NEW ONE! I HAVE HAD TO DELETE A NUMBER OF MY ORIGINAL MEMORIALS BECAUSE OF DUPES THAT WERE CREATED WITH MORE INFO OR PICS AT A LATER DATE. AS I HAVE STATED IN THE PAST, I WILL ALMOST ALWAYS TRANSFER MEMORIALS IF REQUESTED BUT PLEASE, AS A COURTESY, LOOK FOR AN ORIGINAL BEFORE DUPLICATING. THANKS!

RE: finding more Millers
Hi Jan, thanks for responding! My apologies for not getting back very quickly, my uncle passed away and you know all that entails.
So now that I have time to regroup and start again, I think my question was about Jonathon Miller born Aug 8 1814 TN -Jan 2 1869 Illinois. I think Dilingham Shed cemetery in IL
The Miller's in my family are from Southern IL.
Just trying to see what line to follow, seems to be a few and it's confusing. This Jonathon had Charles W Miller and he had George H Miller.
Not really sure what my question is. I've been following Ancestry.com and hoped to find confirmation that this information was correct I guess. Any advice on how to go forward would be appreciated.
Thank you
Tanya

Anna Stuan Minder (63887664)
Hello, I have a correction to suggest. Anna Stuan Minder (63887664) is the daughter of Richard G. Stuan (160503777) & Anna (Auer) Stuan (160503793). She isn't the daughter of Richard P. Stuan (84416907). I don't know how easy this will be to correct since there are multiple contributors for these profiles.
Thanks,
RICH

I just noticed your transfer of Lovey Marie's memorial, thanks very much. I have determined that her parents are buried in Pleasant Mound which must be why she is there. Still a puzzle about why the infant dau is at Englewood. Appreciate your help.

Maidie Culwell #36156660
Jan,

I have been contacted to correct the spelling of Maidie Culwell (your spelling in Maudie) and the burial in Ashley Creek Cemetery, Ashley Creek, Texas County, MO should be in Fairview Cemetery in Ashley, Pike County, MO.

I have added your info to my entry (#23711688), but I need you to remove your link to her husband Otto and her parents that creates a duplicate entry with her brother. I may be a good idea to keep your entry in Ashley Creek with your explaination since this is bound to come up again.
