Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please feel free to contact me with updates by using the EDIT tab in the upper right hand corner of the memorial. FINDAGRAVE has rules, so please read the guidelines.

If you wish to use one of my photos, please contact me for permission.

Even though it is allowed, I respectfully request that no Death Certificates or census records, etc. be uploaded into the photo sections of the memorials that I manage. I would very much prefer that a family photo or headstone be occupying that photo space to represent their life. It is much more appropriate for this website.

It is my pleasure to transfer memorials that are not part of my family as long as it meets the Findagrave guidelines. Out of guidelines transfers are made on a case by case basis.

Lauretta Kessler
Hi Margaret,
You sent me:

Find A Grave contributor Margaret has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Lauretta Kessler.
Link to memorial:

Their suggestion:
According to Names in Stone by Jacob Holdcraft, Lauretta is buried in the same cemetery as her husband. Is his information incorrect.


Lauretta & husband are in the same cemetery. I did all 4 of the big cemeteries in Jefferson when I lived there - Jefferson United Methodist, Jefferson Union, Jefferson Reformed & St. Paul's Lutheran. I have found errors in Holdcraft's work, but you can guarantee anyone I've listed in Jefferson is in the correct spot (regardless of what Holdcraft says).

Location of cemetery
Hi Margarget: I am married to the great great grandson of Francis and Mary Crandell, Gordon Augustus husbands grandfather was the oldest child of John William, Francis' son Gordon, and some reason Gordon changed the spelling of the last name, the only one to do so as fare as I can figure. It was sort of in my quest to sort out why that I came upon Find A Grave, and the loads of information you posted! Well done! Are you related to us?
I was wondering if you know the location of the Tracy's Landing property where the Crandell Family Cemetery is located; one of the great grandchildren, John William Crandell and I were hoping to find it and perhaps secure owner permission to photograph the graves. All of John William and Lida's children have passed away, and their grandchildren aren't aware of property in Tracy's Landing.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
