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 Ancestry.com with 57,000 people. If you're related to someone in that tree, we are not related and what's there on Ancestry.com 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!

Ransch-150290659
Hi Kathleen..my 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 it...so 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.

Your edit:
Father:
Abraham Wise
(1852 - 1926)

Will be declined. Reason:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=listFaqs#10

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

The memorial for the father is burial unknown. Therefore, it does not meet the purpose of FindAGrave. FindAGrave is not a family tree linking site. There are other sites established for that purpose.

Appreciate all the work you have done, once you are into this business you get hooked. I have been at Goss cemetery many times, and am curious why you created the John Owens record, was it based on records you found? Or assumption because wife Lydia 's marker there ( and of course many other
Owens's
Hope you help and will be patient...

Mace mystery
You manage the page for Elmer Mace on Find A Grave. I see that you have his demise in Clarendon Hills, IL. I found that he and his son, Henry passed just a week apart, both in Illinois, but haven't yet found an obit. Do you have any info for either of them? If you do, would you please email any tidbit to purpleladymom@gmail.com. Thank you so much.

Wilson Levant Moulton was my 2nd great grandfather's brother. You mention in his daughter's bio she is a descendant through her paternal grandfather , of Mayflower
pilgrim, John Alden. Could you pinpoint this relationship? Thank you for your research, I would have never found him.
