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!

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:
Abraham Wise
(1852 - 1926)

Will be declined. Reason:

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.

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.

Hi Kathleen: I don't get into the family history or genealogical details only that which other Contributors ask me to add, and I don't keep records of who added what. I enter what I retrieve from the Cemetery Indexes and attach the gravemarker photos. I am "in the dark" on this one but will gladly transfer the memorial to you for updating since you obviously have the document
needed. Have a good day.

I don't know any thing except what this information has in it. I wish I could help.

George and Eliza Hofstatter had no children, but they did help raise Clarence Hofstatter, son of Mr and Mrs. Timothy Hofstatter, after they died.

John Owens #149322547

I have been searching for his grave in Platte and Clay County. I see what appears you know where it is according to your record added Jul 15, 2015

I found his wife's (Lydia) and a baby buried next to her (also a John) died 1836 in the Goss Cemetery but not his grave.

John Owens built a home in Clay Co. that held the first elections along with "Yankee Smith" who Smithville was named after. They were close friends.

Please let me know....I have been searching for him a very long time. Any information at all.

My grandmother was Nola Owens Masoner buried in Camden Point Cemetery.
