|Bio and Links|
I got seriously involved in my geneology when my father passed in March 2009. I am still a newbee to all of this but I am trying hard and making many new friends traversing the many avenues of research.|
I have many, many ancestors in Mower, Goodhue, and Olmsted Co, Minnesota; & Charleston Co, S.C. As well as the states of Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania & Massachusetts but the going is very slow.
Living in Southern California I have to rely on others for much of my information for which I am eternally greatful.
Surnames : Gee, Rupe, Shaw, Leason, Eggleston, Kraft, Wohlers, Hawkins, Fallon, Ryan, Cunningham.
Any transfers of memorials to myself will not be deleted and replaced. That is rude and unseemly to the hard work of the original creator.
Any photo taken and posted by myself is free to use. No need to ask for permission to reuse nor is acknowledgment required in it's reuse. Once anything hits the internet it is out in the world much like our journey thru life and it is just as hard to control. So feel free to enhance your family trees and records with what I have.
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to find the location of Myrtle's burial. I am pleased to know she is buried near her husband and son. Your efforts are more than helpful. Cathy w. in Hastings.

I had to retake Mary's photo today. It didn't urn out yesterday. But it's uploaded now.

Thank you for your attempt to locate the gravestone of Ruth Grage. I have since located where she is really buried and have removed my photo request for her.
|Kathy Salazar||Margaret Hawken memorial #132742544|
Margaret is buried to the right of her husband. No marker is visible.
|Steve Kiner||RE: Nora & Michael Ahern|
You're welcome. FYI - Lucille Ahern Hennessey (Memorial# 91425644) was also next to them. I did photograph but did not upload as her stone didn't have a death date and I couldn't confirm one way or another.
|Jim Davis||RE: Gee & Oliver|
It was my pleasure. It's nice to know that Wanda is next to her cousin even though she's unmarked.
|Richard Wesley||Patrick & Lucille Barrett|
Hi, Lucille!! Thanks very much for the marker photos added to the Barrett memorials. I got their son linked to them!

Laura, you've been hard at work for me again to locate & photograph the graves of my great aunt & uncle Cosmo & Flo Curiale at Holy Sepulcher cemetery. I really appreciate your time and effort and hope someone returns the favor soon. Dan Carrier, Dallas, TX
|Sidney||RE: Robert & Loretta McDermott|
You are very welcome, glad I could help.
