Bio and Links
Bio Photo My wonderful grandmother, Maude (Wadsworth) Larson was the one who gave me the genealogy bug 10 years before her passing in 1986. I was lucky enough to get her genealogy work and some of her treasured photos, so I continued on where she left off. In her genealogy papers were obits from not only family but of friends and neighbors and I didn't know really what to do with some of them until I found FAG and knew thats where they belonged in hopes of helping others in their genealogy work, so some of my work here on FAG were obits my grandmother had saved for over 60 years and some of them contain so much information for a family member.

I have always enjoyed wandering around in cemeteries and always found tombstones interesting and was very happy to find FAG and see that there are others like myself interested in graving.

Name correction for Find A Grave Memorial# 23168855 for Ceclia Hyrup Christensen
Hello, Have sent you a correction on Find A Grave Memorial# 23168855 for Ceclia Hyrup Christensen. The obit info for her husband lists her maiden name as Nyrup. That is a typo. The actual marriage license for their daughter lists Ceclia's maiden name as Hyrup and Cecilia's own marriage record at the Iowa State Archives lists Ceclia's maiden name as Hyrup. So I think one can be confident in the maiden name change. EH Find A Grave#48102166

Thank you
Hi Karla,
Hope you and yours are well and happy. Missed you last Memorial Day in Harlan, but always see that you have been there. We stopped at Dick's and Maude's graves. Colorado
Relatives did not come. They felt they should visit Duane's grave for his first Memorial Day .

I also thank you for your attention to my relatives Find A Grave memorials.

Would love to make contact with you.

With love,

Horace and Philena Wadsworth
Hi Karla, I am descended from Philena Wood and Horace William Wadsworth through their daughter Harriet, and saw your memorials #23251036 and #34758985 with some documentation on Philena and Horace. While I have plenty of information on Horace, Philena's ancestry has so far proven elusive. To help the cause, would you be able to provide the sources you used to determine her birth and marriage info?

Jesse Judson Decker
Grand children of Jesse wihth their father being
William D Decker. Their Grandmother being Dolly Martin Duvall - were trilled to get to see two pics of Jesse Judson Decker. Wonder if your grandmother or great grandmother were related since you had photos of him... or to Dolly Martin Duvall. I wish you had a pic of Dolly as they have none of her either.

I was married to Bill Decker, son of Dolly.
we had three children. Bill has been gone for a long time and any photos that the older children had - none have been shared.

I'm almost sure they know the cemetery where Jesse is laid to rest.
