Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.

I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".

I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.

If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.

I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Merritt Stilson (#64178821)
Hi Sue Ann, Merritt Stilson was my 2x Great Grand Uncle, and was the son of Charlotte Mary Foster Stilson (#20184097) , a Mayflower Descendant, and Moses Stilson (#112314167). Charlotte traveled to Wisconsin with Merritt and his first wife, died and is buried there. Moses predeceased her by 10 years, and is buried in New York State. Merritt's birthdate is May 18, 1832, and his death date was Nov 17, 1917, according to his death certificate I found. I am hoping you could add those facts to his memorial page in the even his descendants come looking for him on FindAGrave. Thank you for your work as a contributor. If he ever misbehaves and becomes a burden, feel free to transfer him to me. His mother, Charlotte, will help get him in line again! Best regards, David
