Bio and Links
Bio Photo In appreciation for what others have done and all the hard work that happens here I will try to put back as much as I have received. I will try to add names and pictures from my own area. If you find one of your relatives that I have entered and the information is incorrect or you do not want it on this site, please contact me and we will correct or remove as quickly as possible. You also have my permission to use any of the pictures I have put on this site for your own personal family use. No need to ask. If you want a family member's memorial transferred to you, just ask.

If I am able to fulfill requests for names, photos or other additional information, please feel free to request.

Happy hunting to everyone of you who are out there searching and trying to fill in all the open spaces in family history. And, thank you to all the hard working volunteers that make this site so great.

Julius Egger Duplicate
Hello and good day to you.

It makes sense that you would have the little fella named Julius Egger, listed here....however, he is buried in the same cemetery under the name of his father who was Julius Caesar Egger...

The little fella can be found duplicated at his gravestone marker reading as Caesar Julius Egger..... Perhaps that's how they kept the people separate...???

The other listing even has a small bio. It's always sad when a baby or tot dies so young. He died from pneumonia...

Just thought I'd let you know...

Ole & Matha Abrhamson
I was wondering if you have ever run into any graves for and Ole and Martha Abrahamson? These were the parents of my great grandmother Anna K Nelson who is buried in Trinity cemetery and many times family members are buried in the same cemetery. The only thing I have to go on is the fact that they were probably Lutheran and that they resides in Shell Creek in Boone Co in 1885.

Edward Bateman
I was wondering if I could get you to delete Edward Bateman's page so I can add it or if there is some way to turn it over to me so I can add to it. I pretty much typed up his whole life on here, but it was somehow deleted. The only reason I can come up with is because there is already a record for him. Also his date of death is wrong. It should be April 9, 1998. I am confused. When I first searched for him on Find a Grave, nothing came up for him; but when I tried to make a record for him, it was deleted. Thanks for your help.

Did you receive the typed obit I sent? If so, I believe I forgot to cite it - Burwell Tribune, May 14, 1925 (1:3)

I just sent you a story for Albert Cram. They however have the birth date incorrect. It should be 1871, not 1883. Thanks!

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 34927498
Seeing you name on so many of my ancestors' graves, I've wondered if we were related in some way (Marty:Martys). My mother has been doing genealogy for 45 years and I have be passed the torch. I'll drop you a note when I find them and be happy to maintain them. Working on my certification in genealogy and I'm painfully meticulous about historical correctness, though not infallible. I seek the highest degree of certainty before I put my name on my research. Let's keep in touch!

Edward & Michael Sheridan
Thank you so much Shirley for the information on Edward & Michael. I do believe they are father and son especially now that I know they are on the same stone. You are truly a Find A Grave angel. Sincerely, Lorraine

Edward Sheridan
I am looking for clues for my Sheridan ancestry. I noticed that Edward's Find A Grave (1888-1888) buried in Saint John's Catholic Cemetery, that his tombstone also appears on Michael;s Find A Grave site (1839-1900). I am wondering if Michael is Edward's father. Would it be possible to tell me whether both are on the same tombstone but on different sides? I appreciate your time. Sincerely Lorraine
