Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Nebraska, raised in eastern North Carolina and after living in various parts of the U.S., I now live in northern Utah, just below the Idaho boarder.
Can't remember when I didn't enjoy going through graveyards. So being a part of Find A Grave is perfect for me.
The first joke I can remember being told was by my father who died in 1961.
He'd pull up to a cemetery and say "Kids, this is the most popular place in town. Yep! People are just dying to get inside." And he and Mom would just chuckle as we drove away.
Being young at the time, it didn't hit me for
years what he meant so, that is how my curiosity
got the better of me. I just had to find out
about all those people who were "Dying" to get inside those graveyards.
The family names I'm researching the most are TEW, GODWIN, HAYES & JACKSON out of North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Texas & Flroida.
OBERMIER, FINKE, WEIMER & AGGEN out of Nebraska, Wisconsin & Germany.
I've been doing genealogy for 40+ years and it is one of things that I love to do.
Thank you to those who have helped me out with my requests.

To those who get their britches in a bunch because I leave a Death Certificate on their memorials I say this. I am busy with a project, should one be left after it has been requested not to, don't take offense. There are many contributors and should your name beforegotten, just ask and it will be removed. Don't mean to offend and to receive demands that are mean and hurtful is not how I handle things. In nearly 7 years on there have been 3 people that have requested this. You can get further in life by being considerate and kind.

James Trollinger, Jr.
Thank you for the links to James Trollinger's parents. Please remove the death certificate you placed on him memorial. I know that F.A.G. allows them, but I do not care for them, and do not feel they add anything to the memorial. Thanks.

Walter B. Gilbert (Son of Lily A. Tew)

I am a descendant of Walter B. Gilbert and just found his Death Certificate on here. I learned that his mother was Lily A. Tew and his father was Odie Gilbert.

I was wondering if you knew where Odie Gilbert and Lily Tew got married, how many kids did they have or do you have any information on them?

Thank you!

Best regards.
