Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings, fellow Find a Graver! Thanks for your support of this site by your hard work posting, editing, adding photos AND using Find a Grave! Many members have helped me make connections and knowing I have helped someone brings a bit of joy to my heart.

Have a question about a memorial or need help finding info? Contact me using the EDIT button and click "suggest any other correction or addition" (quickest way and private) or leave a public message.

Am related to maybe 80% of the ones I've posted and may have more info. I leave flowers when I visit a memorial while doing research & during the past few months, have been trying to remember to add my relationship in the notes...

Questions and/or corrections are welcome. If I've made an error...let me know, politely. If I ask the source of info, don't be offended, I want to add the source to my database. (To err is human and I'm a little more human than most...)

Feel absolutely FREE to use the tombstone photos I have taken!!


Please ask before using personal/family photos that I own/have taken. I will most likely allow it and have yet to refuse a request. I only ask proper attribution is given, i.e. "posted by Cherie in OC on Find A Grave" and that it's not on a site where someone has to pay to see it. I ask for attribution in case someone would like more info.

Someone asked why I post someone had committed suicide. This subject is difficult. I lost two close family members to suicide. Many families refuse to talk about this. Talking about it BEFORE it gets to that stage is what's most important to try to help prevent it. This is also why I have no problem posting death certificates. Besides "family history" family medical history is very important. I have also been working with a gen society to post the DCs.

Life is too short to be a stick in the mud. Be that little singing bird on the sunny end of the stick!

RE: Trout Hall - CMU
I didn't see the links for his parents and I'd love to have them. Could you please resend.
Keep up the good work!

The same for this one. If you could provide a source, that would be fantastic. I would not dare to guess as to the name, I am only going by cemetery records. I think I should keep it the same for now.

O'Connors at St. Andrew

I have changed the names for the twins to boy and girl. Their dates show that they were infants so I left that out.

As for Frank O'Connor, can you please share with me your source for the date changes? I can only go by the lot cards and death registers.

Hi Cherie! I have changed the name, however, if this is your 1st cousin, then I shall be the little bird on the end of the stick & transfer to you. Just love that saying - so truthful!

On suicide
I appreciate very much your thoughts on suicide. I totally agree that this helps shine a light on this big problem in our society, where compassion is required rather than a cover up. God bless you

Thank you for your, I'm not at all related...I'm photographing a cemetery and usually try to run down relatives as far as I can. Blessings for your help. No need for transfer but appreciate your kindness.
