I'm a seven-year genealogy researcher who was left a legacy by my aunt and father -- who did genealogy when the work was hard and painstaking. It is my joy and responsibility to preserve their work and expand upon it.Findagrave.com is such a wonderful opportunity to create an online memorial for those I love dearly... and in the strangest way "bring to life" those I never had the opportunity to meet.I have attempted to include accurate information on the memorials I have created; however, if you are aware of errors, please let me know. Many of my memorials are family; however, if your relationship is closer -- or you have information you would like to include (especially pictures!), please contact me. I will gladly transfer memorials to people with a closer relationship than I have.Please feel free to use any of my photos in your personal family tree or on your online family tree.
Betty Mellen Hi -- You have Betty as burial unknown because some of her ashes were scattered on the East Coast. I just discovered her at Eagle Point National Cemetery (Section B, site 936) so apparently some of her cremains are with her husband, Richard. Just thought you might want to know so you can edit her memorial page. Also, I uploaded a photo of their headstone.
Thank you so much for the link to the wonderful obituary for Emma!
Yes, she is "family". One of her daughter's sons married my 1st cousin. As they were quite a bit older than I and were missionaries in Peru, I did not know them very well. If you are interested, you can Google Herbert "Bert" & Colleen Elliot for interesting info on their lives. That's how I really came to know them.
I was able to find other family obituaries at the same link. So I got a lot out of your genealogy kindness!
RE: John Muench Thanks you so much for the offer to transfer John! I believe you have done a wonderful job with his memorial and am very thankful for that. It's ok with me if you maintain him for all of us. You are the best. Thank you.
