Bio and Links
Bio Photo This site is special to me for many reasons. I'm not into a numbers game. Simply put, I'm trying to preserve history & memories of my loved ones, friends and others so when 'their' families come looking for them, I can pass them on.
- - - - - - - - -
Special thanks to all the nice people out there who have sent updates on the memorials, cemetery information, family links, added photos and more. You're all appreciated more than I can express.

Duplicates: Sometimes it just happens. I admit I am not perfect - I only try to do my best. While never my intention to create a duplicate memorial, if you come across one I have made, let me know. Via the EDIT feature.

Corrections, Updates, Edits, Duplicates or Transfer Requests - USE THE EDIT FEATURE - NOT the Message Board.
Thank you.

Added Note:
I do not wait weeks or a months to see if a relative might want to make an entry. First, I'm not a mind-reader and second, if I don't make the addition, another member will (and should).
I also understand a family memember wanting management of their relative so, instead of posting criticisms, simply ask. My numbers speak for themselves (I've transferred a 'lot' of memorials).

"The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."

Hello Diane,
I came across the obituary for Jayne Ruthenbeck, which I thought you might wish to use as her Bio. I have entered her dates and places of birth and death as edits that you will need to approve. Here is a link to Jayne's obituary:

Best regards,
David Cross

RE: Mary Ann Cornelius
I was able to make the trip to Illinois for calling hours for Mary Ann. It was a very quick trip. Drove up and back on Thursday and Friday. Mary Ann is at peace.

Marietta Meers
Thanks for the info for Marietta Meers. Would you be able to find the cemetery these people are in?? Right now I am having a difficult time trying to do so. Normally I would try a little but very very tired. My father who lived with me had passed away Sunday Morning. Jan 15th 2017 He was 80. already put his memorial on here. If you wish to see it its on my page. His name if you need it is Gordon H. McMillin. Very hard on me right now. I know it will take time. But easier said than done. has not been 48 hours yet. Once again, Thank You. William McMillin

RE: Your Grandfather
Thank you for transferring my grampa's memorial, and the kind words, too. Grandparents are very special people, I was lucky to have him for 30 years. Thanks again for all your work.

Best regards,
