Bio and Links
It has been a great pleasure sharing with people here, and finding our family! Our family crew that helps me here has not been able to dedicate as much time as before, but we are determined to contribute as much as we can in 2014. We met the Pounds & Vinson family members recently also. 2010 and 2011 were filled with reunions in Ohio, VA, South Georgia, and points west including the Stovalls in Seattle; Duharts of California; the Sims from Mobile, AL & the Davenports from Jacksonville and Pensacola, FL.

** Big Huggs to my awesome grave sponsors**

The respect and sharing of information, both from me to family members and others to my care has been a treasure.

Note: To the gravers who have copied the series of graves and not requested transfer, please remove them. If you are related to these persons and would like to oversee them, you can contact me here and I will reply ethically.

Dana Marie Freeman Deane
Dee - I just looked at the Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Raub, McLean County, North Dakota and found Dana Freeman Deane listed as buried there. That's more likely than in Billings County as the reservation is closer to Raub. Maybe someone up there can check for her grave there - I won't be going that far north on this genealogy trip.

Dana Marie Freeman Deane
Dee - I was just at the Immaculate Conception Cemetery here in North Billings County, North Dakota and don't see a headstone for Dana Deane. There are 14 unnamed white crosses there, and all the other headstones have names. Just wondering how you knew she was there. I was hoping to add photos for all the graves.
