|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in researching my family history since about 1995. I am researching (my mothers side): Hoopingarner, Leclercq, McFarland, Williams, Purcell. (My father's side): Morris, Orman, Furry, Baker, Kirby, Staley. |
(my husband's family): Barushak, Myers, Jones, Cox, Kent, Passmore, Lamb, Petitt, Hansbrough, Jewell....just to name a few.
Please contact me if we have a connection or if there is a correction that needs to be made. When adding photos and/or creating memorials I research the person so I may be able to link them to family and be as accurate as possible. Please realize that we are all human and mistakes are made. So please let me know if there is something I should add/change.
Also, I believe that family should be with family, if possible. I have no problem with transferring out of Find a Grave guidelines to family. Please, just simply send me a request and let me know your relation.
Feel free to use any photos I have taken for your own personal genealogy research. It would be nice if you would credit me with the photo.
A few poems that I enjoy:
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
STRANGERS IN THE BOX
By: Pamela A Harazim
Come, look with me inside this drawer,
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, and serene.
I wish I knew the people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories,
Are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like,
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time,
To tell, who, what, where, and when,
These faces of my heritage,
Would come to life again.
Could this become the fate,
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories,
Someday to be passed away?
Take time to save your stories,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours,
Could be strangers in the box.

Thanks for the obit, geraldine
|Heather Stiebs||RE: Missing Adopted Parents|
I will check it out, thanks for the suggestion. :)
|Heather Stiebs||RE: Missing Adopted Parents|
That's the problem,I don't know why I have the information that they were buried at Holy Angels, I have nothing to back it up. Guess I'll have to do a little digging.
I'm in Southern Oregon, so unfortunately I can't make it there anytime soon... (ha ha ha). I am originally from Wisconsin - my husband and I moved our family here in 2000... But, the internet is a wonderful thing, so I might be able to dig something up yet.... Thanks for your help!
|Heather Stiebs||Missing Adopted Parents|
Billie - for some reason I have information that Frances Langlais's adoptive parents, Susan and Joseph Stein are buried also at Holy Angels. However, when I search through the cemetery on find-a-grave I can't find any record of them. I was wondering if you have any information on the graves there that haven't been photographed or memorialized?

|John Payton||Mary Coulson Oakland Cemetry|
Thanks for the information I did have her in twice. I have deleted the one and added your information to the correct one.
|Tombstone Shadow||Memorial Transfer|
Could you please transfer Mary (Stevenson) Harris; 134283606? She is my great-grandmother. Thank you for all your hard work! -Amy (46976204)
|Heather Stiebs||RE: Johnie Langlais|
Thank you so much Billie!! I knew there were some infants that Leo and Frances lost - but we have not been able to find them - thanks to you, Johnie was found!
|Ron||Jane Taylor duplicate|
I sent an "edit" to Linda Crandall, asking her to link Jane's parents. When she is linked, I will remove my entry. Thank you for writing.
