Bio and Links
Bio Photo Barron. WI is where I grew up. My husband, Jim, and I built a cabin in Springbrook in 1980 with the idea that we would make it our home after retirement. That's what we did and love this area. But we spend much of the summer in our camper at Washburn, WI on Lake Superior. I love touring on my 4-Wheeler there with my dog, PEPI, in her basket, loving the breeze in her face.

I've been doing ancestry for several years. Mostly just feeling around to see what info there is out there. This has been added to my special site list. I'd like to do some photo work in my area, Washburn, Sawyer, Ashland and Bayfield Counties.WI.

I wish to give credit to Karen Duffy, for giving me many obituaries that I haven't had access to in Sawyer CO. And Karen Hill for being helpful in the same area. Often I enter a tombstone photo that someone else has entered earlier. If you click on my photo it may show you the BLK they are in. is where I gather the info I can about a person. I feel that everyone has a history and I like to enter a little bio for people that have no obituary available. (BUT I WELCOME OBITUARIES YOU SEND MY WAY). I'm hoping to also help ancestors who read them. Please ask for a transfer if you wish to add info that isn't available to me. You are welcome to use my photos for your family tree. I do appreciate any kind words if you wish to send any my way. NW

Margaret Rachel Wolverson
Hello! Thank you for this memorial of my Aunt Rachel (we also called her Marge). I wanted to let you know that she was born in Georgia. Thanks!

Hi,I guess I don't understand how you can take my picture and then add it. I will retake the picture and add it to your new memorial. I would like to request that you remove the picture that I took and claimed as your own. Thank you. bhd

RE: Judy Norlander
hi, it looks like you deleted your memorial and created a new one instead of just changing the cemetery location. I had added the picture to that first one. Unfortunately, once I add the picture I delete it.

RE: Zimney
Hello - I don't believe there are photos of their graves (or pages made). Her is the obituary for Marie (she went by Mary but, birth record is Marie):

Deceased Name: Mary Zimney, nee Vydra

RE: Re: wrong cemetery for Wealthy
No problem, Isaac and Eunice are my 3x great grandparents through their daughter Eunice Cady who married Levi Swan. Eunice has a memorial page also, she is buried in Pierce-Smith Pioneer Cemetery in Murray, Orleans County, New York, along with her husband Levi Swan, their grave stones are side by side.

Wealthy Cady Jenne
Hello, I just thought you would like to know that the memorial you have made for Wealthy Cady Jenne, daughter of Eunice Houghton Cady and Isaac Cady is incorrect. Wealthy Cady was born 18 May 1795, and not 1775. Her mother was born in 1772 so the date of birth of 1775 would put her mother at 3 yrs of age when she gave birth. She is buried in Pleasant View Cemetery, Ludlow, Windsor, Vermont with her husband Reuben. There is already a memorial page made for her, #92953449. She died on 17 Oct 1857. She was one of at least thirteen children so I understand how hard it is to keep them straight especially when they used the same names for all of their children and their children reused the names etc.
