Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for 40 years or more, started out with my mother and looking in the Seattle Libraries for information on my mother's family. My father knew mostly about his Morse family, where they came from and how they got to the USA. My mother on the other hand didn't know much except for the maiden names of her mother's people. Needless to say it has been a great journey and adventure in not only the history of both sides but a great pleasure in finding out where our people are from and where their final resting places are. I never would have found out or had been able to see where they are had it not of been for other's kindness and love for the same reasoning of being able to find a loved one lost so many years before. Credit is due to others who have helped in this journey, thanks to all of you who have added a picture or information, very much appreciated!

RE: Spokane WA Deaths Fairmount Memorial Gardens
If you can send me the names I can check digital archives. Me, not a spokaneite, but I do find a few Spokane valley but most are Spokane. I thought suburbs were the littler cities outside the big one but after looking up the definition I stand corrected. Still glad I can learn something every day. Have a good day! R

Spokane WA Deaths Fairmount Memorial Gardens
Hi Melody, I just approved many requests from you. The birth and death was Spokane Valley. I think it is probably just Spokane as Spokane Valley is a suburb of Spokane. The main hospitals are in Spokane and only newer specialty ones are in Spokane Valley. I approved all of them then I realized how many there were. You may want to check your records again and change it to Spokane if that is correct. Thank you for your contribution. Rosalie

Mary Mead Laden birth place
Her death record gives her birth place as Walton; daughter Catherine's gives it as Amboy, however, it also gives an apparently incorrect birth place for John. Walton is only a few miles from Amboy.

RE: Barbara Mary Lorenz Wolgast
The Wolgast tree is my late cousin Don's tree; I'm an editor on it, and had provided him with most of the info and documentation on the Lorenz and Wolgast lines. Our late cousins Henry Swanson and his son Bill had in turn, copied their research to me. Barbara was Hank's grandmother, and he knew her well. I will have to do more looking to see exactly what the documentation is for the birthplace. The area of the Lorenz and Wolgast farms is right on the border of DuPage County, so it's not a surprise that things might have occurred in DuPage while they lived in Kane County. Indeed, my great-great grandfather Wolgast's declaration was filed in DuPage, but his naturalization was in Kane County.

I understand the message feature in edits is not working. What is your source for this edit? Thanks much!

John A Laden
You were correct. John Laden is buried with his wife and daughter, Catherine E Laden Lorenz at Mt Olivet Cemetery in Aurora IL. Unfortunately, their graves are unmarked. I have a photo of the lot and have attached it to Mary's memorial. I do know that John was buried on 12/6/1949 per the cemetery office. If you want to create a memorial for John I'll be happy to attach the photo of the lot.

RE: Joseph Lee McMullen
I took this information from a book published about the cemetery. Sorry, I have no further information.

Morse Family
Hello Melody my name is Seth i saw your message about the Morse family and i wanted to reach out and try to communicate with you because my grandmother Janet Osgood (Morse) was the Daughter of Newell Dwight Morse and Frances Irene Morse (Lancaster)Also Gertrude Morse is still alive and is in contact with my grandmother. I would love to talk more and maybe be able to help you out as much as i can. As for the other children of the morse family you are trying to locate i don't know much about them, but my grandmother may know a little bit more. Hope to hear back from you soon.

RE: French Family
I don't see them in Fulton Street. You might want to look in Fairplains or Greenwood in Grand Rapids. See if you can find the interments for each. Also Sparta is in Kent County Mich but no idea of the cemeteries

RE: Pheobe French/Allye
I have the records from 1994. There is only one French, William, 1791-1869 but I also have the DAR records which show no marker. What was the other name you were looking for???
