|Bio and Links|
I've been doing genealogy since 1988. I love walking through cemeteries, imagining the lives of the people I pass.|
Most of the pages I post are for people I am NOT related to. (the ones I am connected to usually have a photo of the person added). These "extra" people are ones from local (and not so local) cemeteries that my husband & I photograph their stones and I enter them on FAG, trying to link as many as I can so the families are brought back together after all this time. I do lots of research to accomplish this and I hope I add correct information. I love to connect these people and I'm always thrilled when something comes together, either through the census, obits, marriage records, a family genealogy, Rootsweb entries, or even "social" news in an old newspaper. I hope I find "homes" for all these people, including all the little children who seem to get lost as they had no descendants.
**If you find someone you are related to and would like to take over their page, please request a transfer through the EDIT option, on the particular individual's page. Select "Suggest" and type in your request, which will then send me an email that will be linked to the person.**
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the 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
One hundred 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."
written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer (1868-1932)

|cshelans||Jeanne Springer Shelanskey|
Thank you so much for the entry for Jeanne Springer Shelanskey which included the photo of her headstone and a newspaper clipping of her engagement. I have been unable to locate any information about the date that Jeanne and Frank were married and this clipping may give me the missing clue. Thank you again. If you have any other information about the "Shelanskey" family, I would very much appreciate you sharing it with me.
Thank you -Crystal

Also my family. Thank you!

John M. Freeman I believe is also my ancestor. Thank you again for your photographing.

Remembrance Freeman I believe is my ancestor. Do you have a photo of his wife? Thank you for transferring this and thank you for the photo.
Great idea, putting in the note on a record that you are not an ancestor and if you wish the record transferred to contact you. I am doing a general survey of Creekside Cemetery, and wish I'd thought of doing that about 1,200 graves ago! (I do have a note about it in my profile, but I like having it on the record too).

Thank so much for adding the military marker of my father. I am so thankful that you did this.
|Lawrence Steinfeldt||PARRISH STEINFELDT|
Thanks Cheri! I believe this is my great grandfather Frederick Steinfeldt's grave stone. Frank H Steinfeldt (Emma Sackett) were my father's (George E. Steinfeldt Sr.) parents and my paternal grandparents.
|David Curtis||Charles H. Johnson marriage|
Thank you for posting the marriage record for Charles H. Johnson. He was my third cousin, 2 times removed. A little distant, but all information is helpful.
