Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my own family's genealogy for 12 years. I'm also a birder, and enjoy taking photos while birding cemeteries.

I have photographed and entered memorials for several cemeteries. Contact me through the edit tab on the memorial and I'd be happy to add additional information to a memorial or transfer ownership of a memorial to you if you're related.

Any pictures I've posted can be used without my permission for genealogy related use, such as posting to your tree.

For those with family in the cemeteries in Fargo, North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota. Just because they lived in Minnesota and the Social Security Death Index says their last residence was Minnesota, that doesn't mean they DIED in Minnesota. The only hospital in Moorhead, MN closed in the early 1970's, and many people who were ill and went to the hospital and died, did so in Fargo, North Dakota. Also, many Fargo/Moorhead residents over the years have gotten their health care at Mayo or in Minneapolis, and ended up dying in Hennepin County or Ramsey County, MN. And then there's those "snow birds" who spend winters in Arizona or Florida and die there. If you don't know for sure where they died, don't guess, leave it blank.

I think i may have had you hook his memorial to Herman Eberhardts

just gonna say now it may be the wrong Herman but not positive all the children are related for sure now thats on hermans but i may had made a mistake

before i could only find census for herman up to 1900 and last child that i know of was born in 1903 so living in North Dakota.

It appeared the Herman im looking for wife augusta Wiedemann had remarried to a thomas miller in that time so i figured Herman must had died

but ancestry has added more census now and Herman may have possibly came back in 1930 i dont know if went to war or what would of happened to thomas Anyways sorry if i messed stuff up im really not sure quite yet

FAG MEM # 110796329 - Emma Lape Hartlaub
I attached a copy of Emma's OH Death Certificate #28098 onto her Memorial. The Memorial unfortunately NEEDs to be edited and rewritten.

Emma Rozetti SAPE died a single/divorced women, The d/o of John Lape and Evaline Cooper Lape born in Hancock County, OH. Her death certificate indicates her Birth date as Jan 13, 1869 (born in in Findlay, Hancock County, OH) with her death date being May 15, 1912.
MOREOVER - Emma died in Shawtown, Pleasant twp, Hancock County, OH of Apoplexy (STROKE) @ Age 43. She was buried where her parents are buried (in the) Mccomb Union Cemetery in McComb, Hancock County, OH.

Could you please edit the Memorial advising m by eMail it has been done. Thank you so very much

thanks for the heads up, I will make a note of it in the memorial. I wasn't sure if they were all in the same section/area.

I think the picture on # 118847434 is for George C. Howe Jr. (d. 2002). Can you check? Thanks!
