|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family tree since way back in the 1970's, starting out doing it the hard way; lots of legwork. Now the internet has made a lot of it easier.
I have always enjoyed walking through old cemeteries and looking at the old stones. If you'd like a picture of a friend's or relative's grave near me, please let me know and I'll see if I can do it for you. Please let me know as much information as possible, like obvious things like cemetery name, location, etc, but also the plot numbers and other names associated with the person you are interested in.
I love history. Family names I am searching include Wismer, Wagner, Dunlap, Kirby, Lietke, Johnson, Sprout, Herrington, and Sweet among others.
I live just outside of Lake Odessa, Michigan, so I spend a lot of time at Lakeside Cemetery, where there are thousands of graves!
If I fulfill a photo request for you and you want the original pictures, please feel free to ask for them. Generally they are larger and of a higher quality than what is posted on FAG.

Hi Alan, it is always a delight to have someone contact me wanting to manage their ancestors' memorials, preserving their memories is what we are all about here on Find.a.Grave. Your Great-Aunt Bertha's memorial is now under your management so you can upload photos and help write her story. Incidentally, she was married to Wesley Noble Whaley who is in my family tree of Whaley's. I don't know much about the family yet to write their story, the search continues for descendants who can assist me. Enjoy! Helen

I'm happy to oblige. Yes I took the picture while in Italy for our 50th Wedding anniversary, we were there for a month.
The Memorial Hall is well done, giving dignity to the purpose.

May I put your photos on Ancestry.com with credit given to you? Thank-you, Joni
|Jeanette Dunigan||RE: Sallie Hunt / Sarah Brownell|
HI. That would be fine if you want to transfer them to me. John was Sally and Ephraim Dailey's son. Sally remarried on 25 Oct 1848 to Gilbert Hunt....I assume Ephraim died. I descend from Sally & Ephraim's son, Oliver Dailey and Margaret Melissa (Anway) Dailey. Thank you. I have no more info on Sally or Ephraim's parents. We got her surname from a family Bible but that was as far back as it went (unfortunately).
|Kathy A||RE: Mariah Ainsworth|
Hi Alan.... I'm sorry for the long delay in responding, I'm still learning all the ins and outs of find a grave and just found your message. :(
Yes, my husband Rick Ainsworth, is the gggrandson of Robert Ainsworth through Robert's son Fred.
Robert had 4 wives. First wife Katie Letts died young leaving Robert with 3 young children to care for. Mariah was wife #2, she however died in childbrith - child also died. Margaret was the 3rd wife and the "grandma" that the children and grandchildren knew. 4th wife was Julia.
thank you for your willingness to transfer Robert and Mariah over to me. I appreciate it!
