Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,
I'm a wife, mother of two, Mother in Law and new Grandma, keeper of the fur babies, and enjoy not only genealogy, but scrapbooking, amateur radio and traveling.

Areas of research include Southern Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, Michigan, Canada, Germany, Wales, and Cherokee Indian Nation in Oklahoma. I have been working on our family history since Jan 2008.

I will post my photos to families and their memorials first. Family belongs to Family.... they are not just "numbers" to us. Any requests for transfers of relatives will be considered and most likely honored - but please do not try to grab every surname grouping, keep it as close to your direct line as possible.

Keeping the memories of our ancestors alive is something we should all strive for - our history is something to embrace!

Hi Megan. I am the daughter of Geroge wayne Lamp buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Monett, Missouri and I would like to have his Find a Grave memorial transferred to me if you would. My name is Lisa Lamp and my Find a Grave # 48944455. Thanks. Sincerely, Lisa Lamp

RE: Joseph Beasley Memorial
Hi Megan,

Thanks for the information! I had been photographing both Maplelawn and Oak Grove and so I knew they were next to each other but I did not know that bit about the history.

If you click on the photo it shows the full size version which is readable. I will type it up and add it to the page soon though.

RE: Julius Jaenke #6064431
Megan, I am not related to the Jaenke line. I've lived in southern Illinois all my life and am somewhat addicted to wanting to see Findagrave memorials as complete as they can be. Crazy as it sounds, it bothers me to think there are people out there whose roots are in my area but noone knows about their origins (nor can they know simply by capturing a headstone photo in a cemetery). Thanks for your willingness to collaborate. Laura

Julius Jaenke #6064431
If I go to the trouble of "keying" and sending to you a "biographical sketch" from, "Portrait and Biographical Record of Randolph, Jackson, Perry and Monroe Counties, Illinois" by the Biographical Publishing Company, published 1894, concerning Julius H. Jaenke, will you consider using the content to expand his FAGrave memorial? I realize the document is not a primary source and therefore, you may be hesitant to rely on it. Laura Duncan

Higgerson Cemetery
You have created memorials for those people buried at Higgerson Cemetery, and I was wondering whether you have actually been to the cemetery. I had never heard of this cemetery until I came across your memorials, and am very interested in knowing more about it. Tarleton Higgerson, memorial no. 123977368 is of particular interest to me, as he was the brother of my great-grandfather, Samuel Wesley Higgerson, and I had never found any dates that pertain to him until I saw your memorial. Does a grave marker still exist for him? I am curious to know where you learned the dates of his lifespan, as recorded at the memorial you created. Any information at all that you would be willing to share concerning Tarleton and the Higgerson Cemetery would be of great interest to me. Thank you.

I went to OCC with him. I didn't know if you had seen this but thought you might include this on his memorial:

RE: Photo and Duplicates
I would be more than happy to help. Let me know what family plots you want me to photo? Do you have all local obituaries?
