Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thanksgiving Week 2015. I am so thankful for all the volunteers/users of this web site. I've met so many wonderful people including relatives I was not aware of!

There are those who say Find a Grave should be just that "find a grave" and NOT full of family notes. You can't please everyone but you can be thankful for their contributions here. I know people who have been able to discover relatives thanks to notes and - to me - that's what makes this work worthwhile.

I am thankful for every morning I wake up. That means a little more time before I become a Find a Grave memorial!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

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!

----> ADOPT AN ORPHAN !! <---
PLEASE, feel free to ask for a transfer(s) by using the EDIT button on the memorial page and click on "suggest any other correction or addition." I have many orphan memorials - meaning I am not related and they need a family to properly manage them. I transfer outside FaG guidelines as I am in this for family, not fame...

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 floral note... That said, if there is a flower, I most likely have them in my database and you can contact me to see if I have more information.

Have a question, a correction or need help finding info? Again, you can contact me using the EDIT button and click "suggest any other correction or addition" (quickest way and private) or leave a public message.

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 that someone committed suicide. I know this subject is difficult. I lost two close family members to suicide. Many families refuse to talk about it. 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 DCs.

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

It's not my picture to move...
Rowena should only have one page, as Rowena Peckham--if anyone clicks on the link from Henry Smith, they'll be able to figure it out. After her second husband dies, then she can be put in the correct cemetery with him...or at least something can be written on her page about where both sets of ashes are, if known.

RE: Greetings!
Hi Cherie, thank you for transferring the memorials to me, I do have a question. I can't seem to find were to edit the children and sibling information. It only brings up parent and spouse. I checked the help feature and did not find it. Can you tell me were that feature is at? thanks.

RE: Henry Diehl
Hi Cherie. My relationship to Henry Diehl is through his wife, Fannie ( Fredericka ) Busch, who was sister to my great grandfather, John Busch. I live in western New York, about a 15 minute drive to where the Busch family originally settled, first in the town of Aurora, then Elma, and finally East Hamburg ( now called Orchard Park ). The Diehl family was also nearby. Cemeteries where both families are buried are nearby; if there are any grave markers you would like pictures of, I'll see what I can do for you.
In recent searches I have done on, it looks like Henry's given name is actually Georg Heinrich Diehl and that his sister Margaret ( Anna Margaretha ) is actually his twin. I'm still trying to figure out why the surname of the family that stayed in this area is usually recorded as "Deihl", while the family in Michigan is "Diehl", although I'm sure it's the same family. I'll be happy to share what I know of both families, though I know more about the Busch family than I do about the Diehls.

RE: William Leonard Anderson
Cherie - Thanks for the offer but he's not related. I was born and raised in Humboldt County and was just working through some old obituaries on line for that area and "connecting dots" when I found them.

Thanks for the transfer. If you are related to the Whites from Cynthia Baker White, then we sure are cousins of some sort!

"Bobbing" for Apples...Again
Hi Cherie,

When you can, drop me a note on my e-mail (shown on my profile page)...I received a VERY detailed e-mail from a contributor in Ohio today which on some matters contradicts some of last week's edits which you had provided for Martin Bobb et. al. back in Clay County Kansas. I'd like to send it to you so you can evaluate before I make any changes.

Thanks, Mark
