Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of the best features of Find A Grave is that it provides a forum where years of genealogical research can be shared with others. Please let me know if you have additional biographical or statistical information for any of my memorials, as it is always welcome. The wealth of knowledge that others have sent to me through Find A Grave is astounding.

If you are aware of links for parents and/or spouses that I have not yet added, I would appreciate it if you would use the edit tab to leave the name and memorial number of the person or people who should be linked.

Thanks to all those who have generously shared your family stories and beautiful photos with me. I sincerely appreciate being allowed to add them to the memorials for your loved ones. The pictures and studio portraits that for years have been carefully preserved in family photo albums, add such a wonderful dimension to Find A Grave. They help create a memorial tribute that is all the more special and meaningful.

Before asking for a memorial transfer, please determine whether or not this is really necessary. Transfers of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections even if you are not the memorial manager. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a transfer request. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire family trees.

Transfers will only be considered if they comply strictly with Find A Grave guidelines. You must state your exact relationship to the deceased. People who request transfers and then fail to improve and maintain the memorial are certainly not honoring the memory of their family member.

Bulk surname transfers will not be considered under any circumstances.

Unless otherwise noted, all bios on my memorials were researched and written by me. Post-1922 verbatim obituaries have not been included in order to avoid copyright violations.

I have put a lot of time and effort into my memorials on Find A Grave. I strive to make sure that the information on them is as accurate as possible, but I am realistic and know that mistakes do happen. Please use the edit tab to leave a message regarding any errors or omissions that need to be corrected.

By working together, we can continue to build Find A Grave into a better and better site!


Note: 30 Sep 2013 marked a very sad day for all Find A Grave contributors when the founder of this website sold us out to

I will continue to add to and maintain my memorials as long as Find A Grave remains a completely free website, open to all without charge.

Nellie Dalhaus McDonough's daughter
Hello Lynn- I found that Nellie's youngest daughter Peggy Harrington passed away in 2013 and I added her to Nellie's memorial page. You can update Nellie's obit to have Peggy's name put in instead of Living Harrington.

Osborn family
Thank You Lynn for the information on Leroy Osborn, Mary and Homer. Are you related?
You had so many details, I just wondered.
Leroy Osborn was my grandfather. My mother was Norma Jean Osborn, his child with Lois Starkweather. Norma was born in 1926 when Leroy was young. I have met Linda Osborn Morrison, and her brother (can't remember his name at the moment). Thanks again for the detailed information. Mary Heuerman Lusk

Lucinda Hutchinson Church
Hi Lynn,

We corresponded back in Jan. 2012 about Lucinda and her family. We couldn't understand why she was buried in Illinois while her husband and daughter were in Kansas. I have done a lot of research recently and have connected several memorials to hers. I also found 4 children we didn't know about originally but don't know for sure where they are buried, even though I imagine they are in the same cemetery as Lucinda, but no memorials for them. The 1880 census showed her daughter Rosa, living with her grandfather and step-grandmother in Kansas, with birth in Kansas. She was actually born in Calhoun Co., IL, where her other siblings were born. Rosa and her father George didn't move to Kansas until after Lucinda died. Anyway, with the memorials that have been tied to hers, some of the notes could now be removed. Additional info to add as follows.

Step mother of:
Samuel V. Church (b. 1861)
George C. Church (b. 1863)

Rosa and George W. Church, Jr. memorials are now tied to Lucinda's. The other children are as follows:
Joseph V. Church
b. 18 Dec 1864 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 02 Jan 1870 Calhoun Co., IL

Francis Church
b. 22 Feb 1867 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 22 Feb 1867 Calhoun Co., IL

Margaret Ann Church
b. 09 Jan 1868 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 24 Dec 1869 Calhoun Co., IL

Lillie Bell Church
b. 09 Oct 1872 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 31 Dec 1876 Calhoun Co., IL

If you could add the above to her memorial and delete some of the notes I would very much appreciate it, and thanks so much for all you have done on her memorial in the past.

RE: Ransom family
My Grandmother's maiden name was Ransom...her father was a Ransom, her mother a Becker. They seem to have lived in Kansas City around the 1890s, many of them till about the early 1930s. The group I ultimately came from headed west, first to Arizona, then California. It is the Kansas City, Mo., time that I am trying to reconstruct.

My cousin and I both so appreciate what you're working on, Lynn. I've tried to sign in on the community forum to tell you so again, but it won't let me so I will just send a reply this way!

I am researching the Ransom family (my grandmother was Helen Elizabeth Ransom) and so appreciate the photos and information you have shared here at Forest Hill Cemetery in Kansas City. Thank you for the beautiful views.

I couldn't figure out how to respond to you, so I wanted to say thank you for the information. I really appreciate your help!

George Kamp, Sr. - Calhoun County, IL
Hello Lynn,

I have been working on my family's genealogy and was in contact with someone who had ties to Bayern, Germany records. She seemed to think that the Nicholaus Kamp named as George Sr.'s father could be an error and said I should contact you about how you found this information. Unfortunately, this is where I hit a dead end. I am hoping you can help so that I can continue with records in Germany.

Thank you very much for any help you may be able to offer.

Warm regards,
