Bio and Links
Bio Photo I add memorials as I have time when I see obits in my local papers. I don't usually have additional information on these people. I also add obits from my research into my family lines.

I do check each name before I add it, so there should be no duplicates. However, mistakes happen. There are often alternate spellings of a name, or tombstone dates are wrong and my search does not find a previous entry. So if you find a duplicate, message me and if you have the earlier entry, we will work together to get the information consolidated!

One of the reasons I do this is to help ensure those who have gone before us are remembered and, if possible, 'reunited' with family. If you find a relative or close friend among my burials, please let me know. I am willing to transfer care to you, unless the burial is part of my family tree. In that case, I would love to exchange information with you. You can leave me a public message or use my email.

I welcome corrections and additions, but would appreciate if you would leave a message giving your source, particularly if it conflicts with my information. THANKS!

My family tree surnames include

RE: Paul Janco II photo
I'm glad I could do it -

the marker was recently put up and the office told me the grave wasn't marked about 2 months ago but then later said it had been marked when I checked again.

Hixon memorials
Please explain the bloodline. You weren't very clear (they had a daughter Lucile) That doesn't explain anything about the bloodline.
Please straighten this out.

RE: Eugene Allen (#26809213)
I have added the photo. If you remind me in the fall....I will go to St. Francis and take a new picture. Sometimes it takes a while for the dates to be inscribed on them.

Clay and Ida Weiss in Ferncliff
Sec R lot 86
Clay Weiss d1925
Ida Weiss d1928 no marker
Patricia Neal d12/31/1928 interment 1/2/1929
William Neal d 7/22/1928 interment 7/24/1928

Dates on marker do not match the cemetery records for the Neals. The marker states they died in 1930 and the cemetery records are for 1928.
