Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,

I am Brad Collins, a paramedic from Indiana. My wife, Amanda and I have been working on our family tree since 1998. We enjoy doing family genealogy and adding our family and friends who have passed to Find A Grave and making their memorial a place where one can learn something about them.

Brad's most common surnames:
Collins, Keller, Scott, Moon, Arnett, Eudaly, Amos, Vawter, Leonard, Nusbaumer, Wells, Dawson, Warner, Lee, Ansel, Tracy, Ellis, Hockett/Hoggatt, Beals, Travis, Wilson.

Amanda's most common Surnames:
Bunch, Dickason, Faulkner, Cline, Stevens, Cain, Ringo, Thomas, Winkle, Brewer, Humbert, Beals, Weaver, Ellis.

If you have any connections to any of these surnames names feel free to inquire to see if we connected. Email:
~~ In Our Hearts ~~
We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart.
by Rose de Leon

Send us an email if you have any questions about the people we manage or you want me to transfer someone.
We mostly manage family members and friends as we are making sure that all of them have a Find-A-Grave memorial.

Marie Wood photo request.
Hello! I have bad news. The office staff said there is no one buried there by the name of Marie Wood. I had them check to see if she was buried using her middle name, but nothing showed up. She even went into the vault to check the old paper records (in case it was missed when they changed over to computers) and she still could not find anything. Maybe you should change Marie's memorial to 'cemetery unknown' until you can find out where she really is.

If you think this is an error, I suggest that you contact the cemetery yourself to confirm. I will leave my claim on the photo request until you get back to me, just in case.

Best regards,

John Collins 82345594
Brad, I will not be transferring John's memorial. On 3/26/2013, I declined your transfer request due to the out of guidelines nature (at that time, your third, not second great grandfather) and your numerous 'burial unknown' entries. On 2/1/2015, I discovered a memorial had appeared for John in the same cemetery where I had created mine. Finding it odd that you would request a transfer of a duplicate if you truly had the original, I sent a message to admins explaining that yours was dated first, but could they see if it had been a 'burial unknown'. Whatever they found behind the scenes prompted them to leave the non-merged memorial with me.

photo request for Irey family
Brad, I claimed your photo request but due to our Cleveland weather the 14 day window will expire b/4 I get to Woodvale..The section 7 b is filled with flat stones so the snow has them buried. My wife and i walked 16 sections of Woodvale this past summer/fall and did not get to your families section. We will fulfill your request as soon as weather permits. Sec 7B lot 215 and sec 7B lot 175 have Irey family.

Floy Critchlow
On November 11, 2014 you sent me an email with a change or addition to the memorial for Floy Critchlow. I have lost that information and I don't know if I made the change. Please let me know. Jim

Cyrus Bowman Scott
Hello. I found your Find A Grave info on Cyrus Bowman Scott who was buried in the Momence Cemetery. You had his parents & child, but not his wives. I thought I would give those to you as Cyrus married one of my relatives.

His first wife was Mary Alice Wells, and his 2nd wife was Cora Ellen Jones. He had (6) children with Mary Alice, and (3) with Cora. Walter Cyrus Scott which you have listed is from Cora.

Thank you.

Esther A Gehrett
Hi Brad and Amanda!

I'm just curious if you're related to Esther A Gehrett in the Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens located in Grand Rapids, MI? Her husband is listed as Virgil Gehrett. I'm pretty sure that this is my Great-Grandfather's 1st wife. Wondering if you have any more information on her? Thank you!

Thank you so much for trying to get this picture for me. As with our local cemetery, so many old stones are broken, unreadable, or gone completely.
