Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been an avid genealogist for years, researching my own family and helping others research theirs.

I have now (December 2015) completed a personal project to research every burial in Pioneer Cemetery (aka Masonic or Odd Fellows) in Boise which has just over 1800 burials. I now have about 3,500 memorials on FindAGrave and a related tree on with 57,000 people. If you're related to someone in that tree, we are not related and what's there on is probably all of the information I currently have.

With this much data out there, I'm getting a lot of contacts asking for more information, sometimes several in a day. I always respond to everyone (unless they're particularly cranky or unintelligible), usually with much help and many answers. But, my response time is not generally measured in hours, but days or weeks! This is just my hobby and I've got many other things in my life that keep me hopping. So, please be patient. I'll get to you. If a month passes, I may have missed your query. Feel free to poke me again!

kosciusko Rush

Mr. Rush's wife Blanche Osborne was Mrs. Blanche Osborne, widow of Arthur Osborne. Her maiden name was Blanche McCartney. If you would like to connect her, she died in Watseka, IL, the wife of Harry Sweet. Memorial 21952505

They were not married long, but on the birth certificates of several of Blanche's grandchildren, the daughters' names are given as "Rush" (even though they aren't his natural daughters).

Hi Kathleen, Regarding the above named memorial that I created in Spokane Wa for her. I am curious as to what if any is your connection to her. I would rather transfer her if you are related.
I ask because I would like to be sure of the info. that you submitted as Edits. What is your source for the Edits?

Jose Rafael Baltasar Archuleta
Hi Wendy, I am a descendant of Jose Rafael Archuleta and Maria de la Concepcion Salazar (Rafael's first wife).

He along with his second wife Maria de la Encarnacion are buried in Arroyo Seco likely in the Arroyo Seco Morada Cemetery where many of his and Maria de la Concepcion's descendants are buried.

The church in Arroyo Seco is the Iglesia de la Santisima Trinidad.

You'll see in the interment list, many Archuleta's who include Jose Ramon Archuleta (memorial #71323560), who is the son of Rafael and Maria de la Concepcion.

Jose Rafael and his first wife Maria de la Concepcion and members of his family relocated from Los Salazares in Rio Arriba County to Arroyo Seco in Taos County.

If you have any questions or clarifications, please contact me.

THANK YOU for your hard work on this site.

(3x great grandson of Jose Rafael Baltasar Archuleta)

Hi name is Wendy and I think you and I had communicated before about Albert R. Ransch as we were both looking for him. You had set up a memorial for him but no cemetery 155791443. I found another one in Oregon and just did not look into it until recently and with the help of two other Find A Grave members tracked down his death certificate and it it him that is buried in Oregon. I did his bio and linked his wives..I looked for your email as I thought you had emailed me but of course I cant find I sent you an edit thru Find A Grave and thought I would leave you a message as well..You are very busy as am I and I forget to check the edits sometimes. As you can guess I was very excited to finally find him and we solved one more mystery...Sincerely, Wendy

You created this site would you possibly remember why you notated the Rose Hill cemetery in Idaho Falls? I sent out a request for photo, volunteer indicated the cemetery office did not have this fellow listed in their burial record. He also checked with the Fielding Memorial Park, no record... Thanks for your reply

Merritt Towner
Thanks for ruling out that this was not the Merritt Towner buried in Allegan Co, MI

I have access to a letter by a Merritt from Deadwood California in 1856 to members of the Towner family in Allegany Co, NY.. mentioning Charlotte and Alanson....

Not known if it was the father or an unrecorded son of the same name. Any idea when your Boise Merritt was born?

Johann Rupprecht
HI, what a nice record of Johann Rupprecht here. I think we are maybe related to him, and would be very, interested to hear from more about him. From census records etc. He came over from Germany in the 1850s, I haven't found where he went to seminary yet, but it looks like he started his ministry at the church there, in Dover Ohio, continuing there for forty years or more. Two of his sons also became Lutheran ministers, two teachers. It would be great to learn more about him.

John Dickey
I received your request to change the death place for John H. Dickey Memorial# 110111159. I have declined for the time being. I would like to know what prove you have that he died in Wyoming. I have not been able to locate a death recor for him in Wyoming cause they did not keep them the early. I could not find one in Arkansas because the court hosue burned. The local historical society did find any record of him in the newspapers nor at any of the funerl home's there.
The cemetery in Minnesota has him dying in Hot Spring Arkansas. And the funeral home that is listed in the cemetery records did not have them back that far.
So I have been at a lost as to where he died. Wyoming or Arkansas. The only place I found wyoming is the Newspapers. So please let me know what more informatin you have as to his death.
