Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photo of 4 gen. my mother, my daughter, me, and my daughters, daughter,my granddaughter, sitting on Nana's lap. My name is Diana (Giddens) Shrum my husband is Dave Shrum, we live in Missouri.My fathers side of my family lived in Pulaski, Phelps, Dent, Shannon, and Texas, Co. Missouri. When I was a young child my dad would take me to the cemetery his family is all buried in he taught me to respect and love the history that lies in them along with the amazing people that once lived, and we call family. Most of the people who are buried in that cemetery are related, to me and each other one way or the other. I dont live near where a lot of my family have been laid to rest. Fine A Grave is the closest thing I have to be able to visit most of my loved one. The surnames I am related, to are, Giddens, Stark, Hensley, Morgan, Dye, Clark, Nickles, Buckner, Gale, Butler, Ireland, Dewitt, and many more. My Husband knew little about his family till I started working on his side of the family. The Shrum, Johnson & many more. If you have anything you would like me to add to a memorial, of a love one, family are just a friend. Please use the edit on the memorial, and I will get the info added as soon as I can. I have found that some people don't think, they need to add, the info, sent to them, for a memorial, that has been suggested. I think the more that is known about a person and the life they lived, the more, we get a understanding of who they were,and how they lived there life here on earth. We help, give them a voice, and keep there memory alive. It is sad that we have so many memorials with just a name and dates. They are all more then that, they were,the ones who paved the path we walk. When History about a family is lost, so will its children be lost. We never really know who we are till we know who and where we came from. No one should ever be forgotten are where they are buried be unknown. If,I am in care of one of your loved one's and they are not of my Family, are,if they are, and you are closer in relation,to them then me, I will be happy to transfer them to you.

RE: John Giddens
You are very welcome. I would rather have a family member have ownership. Good luck with your research.

RE: Albert & Alberta are the same
No Worries, Washington Park reinterments at StL Calvary are not that easy to understand. And the fact cemetery employees are not always the best spellers make it more challenging. And the confusing with Actual death dates VS burial dates don't help.

If you have any questions please do not hesistate to ask.

I would have to back and look, as I have many family trees, and he just might happen to be in one, in which I got the info.

Hi Diana: Thank you the transfer, it is so very much appreciated. So sorry to hear of your loss. I, too, was caring for a loved one with dementia for several years and know how all consuming that can be. Blessings to you and your family. Chris

RE: Stramm
Diana, You may use my name. I thought that if the memorial was a family member that you could talk to Find A Grave and have it transferred to you. I have to admit that when someone says they are a family member and the memorial is not of my family, I transfer the memorial to them without any proof because I feel that as long as they are interested in the memorial and I just made it that it should go to someone who cares.
I did ask the lady to add an obit for a second cousin and she never responded.
I am like you, I believe that adding photos of these people and/or info makes them real. Sometimes, when I find obits in old newspapers, I add them to the memorials if one is already made or make it and then add the obit. What wonderful information for people who are trying to find their roots.
I did not ask her for permission to add the photo that I added.
I hope you get it all straightened out as she made memorials for quite a few members of my family.

RE: Stramm
Diana, Yes I added a photo on Martha Clark Stamm's memorial. She was married to my great uncle. I have asked the person who made the memorial in the past to put an obit on a second cousin of mine and she never responded. You don't need permission to add photos. I have in the past and no one has ever said anything to me.
Are you related to Martha?

RE: Stark
I am the same line as you all the way down to Daniel P and his brother James. Daniel's son, Jacob, married James daughter, Margaret, his cousin. Margaret and James had a daughter, Anna Stark, who married Thomas Frazier. Their son John Frazier and his wife Lucinda Wells, had John E. Frazier who married Cora Brown. Their child, Nell B. Frazier, was my father's mother, my paternal grandmother. :)
