I've been researching my families' genealogy for over 30 years. I've also researched my husband's family, friends' families and try to help others in their search. I compulsively read obituary notices (even though there is no one I know) and love to visit old cemeteries and read the stones, so this is the next logical step.
Please submit requests and corrections to memorials I maintain via the "Suggest A Correction" tab. I only transfer memorials within FAG guidelines but am more than happy to do any and all corrections and updates. I do not add links on my memorials to "burial unknowns".
Please do not add scans of obituaries as photos. Send them to me and I will transcribe them into their proper place in the bio section of the memorial.
I have entered a lot of memorials but haven't been able to go back and add additional information and links as I would like. However, that doesn't mean I'm not interested. I am gradually adding information but I have a very busy life outside of Findagrave. I welcome all information and try to respond to Suggest A Corrections promptly.
Thomas Bunker I am in search of my great-great grandfather Francis Bunker and great-great grandmother who was Xoa(Hoa)Clapp both from Penobscot County, Maine. Settled in Lodi WI. I was able to find Francis Bunker's grave sight who I believe was his brother according to genealogy records. There is a family story about Francis Bunker that me and my brothers are trying to confirm is true. That my great-great grandmother Xoa was a Penobscot Indian. We have no birth or death record for Xoa. No pictures either, we do have a tin type picture of Francis. According to the 1870 US Census they were residing in Lodi WI. In the memorial page of Thomas bunker it states that the information was given to you from Thomas's great-great granddaughter Barbara Smith Rue. Is it possible to contact Barbara to find out if she has any information about my Great Great Grandparents? Or she could contact me a email@example.com. P.S. Francis Bunker had a son named Frank Bunker his son would be Eldred LaSarge Bunker of New Lisbon and my father William Bunker of New Lisbon WI. Thank you for any help you can provide me and my family.
Inselmann I hope you will agree with what I have entered.
Your entries for August #146799175 and Ida #146799178 were entered on May 21, 2015 and my entries were entered on 14 Feb 2014. This has been really confusing because of the names with 1 or 2 n's and also the names of the cemeteries.
Would you please delete your entries?
I live in Sauk County Wisconsin and have worked alot with the Meyer families.
