Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photos that I have taken may be copied freely for personal use. I do kindly ask that you keep the credit intact, and not upload them to Ancestry or other sites as your own photo work. I am related to almost all of the memorials I have added and/or manage. Unless I am directly related or there is a special relationship, I am happy to transfer memorials to other family members.

Many memorials on Ancestry and Find-a-Grave reflect my previous username, DOGLOVER, which I changed to INDIANATURTLE in 2013.

Edit requests for my own family memorials that link to UB's (unknown burial location) will be declined. I will be pleased to link when a confirmed and/or documented burial location is found.

Athabasca Cemetery
Thank you for the edits to those several memorials at Athabasca Cemetery. I created the memorials strictly from headstone photos I took while there on a business trip recently. I have no relatives there, so if you know of anyone who wants to take over any of those memorials, tell them to please ask and I will be very happy to transfer them. Thank you for the work you do!

Aroma cem/death records...
Hi there E. Those new records are kind of like eating popcorn- hard to stop looking at them! I'm off to Florence, Colorado to see if I can find g-g-grandfather Jesse Smith born 1834, who ran off with Ella Harvey. I tracked her and her mother Melinda down in the 1900 census, both listed as widows and Ella as a wash woman. Hard to say what the attraction was in Florence. There is a prison in nearby Canon City, CO and I have a researcher looking there for Jesse. Best regards, JP.

RE: Nancy Easterling Photo, 164134245
Hi again, she is doing great!...I went out this morning to double check, because I had photographed that whole block several years ago, thus explaining his photo. I was pretty sure I had added them all, but to be on the safe side I went anyway, it's only 2 miles from me....I'm sorry to say but there are no markers for the ladies. If you need anything else feel free to give me a shout. G

Hi, Yes I had that info. I was out there on Thursday, but they were mowing, it was to dusty/windy in that area. Then Saturday my mom had a heart, needless to say it's not been an easy couple of days, but I will try to get by there tomorrow. G (mom's good, got to come home this afternoon.)

Thank you, Eileen, for the latest message. We've been out of town for four days and I just haven't had time to work on this, although I realize I haven't even answered the one prior to this. I have a couple very busy days ahead of me, then I'll look this all over. I appreciate all your hard work on this. My only interest in the past has been because of the Harris connection and then I tried to follow the trail of his daughter. Harris family story goes he abandoned his wife and baby and went West. This baby would be the daughter. He also had an earlier child that died. And he is found after that in the northwestern states. Can't say I'm very proud of this relative!

More later,

Thank You
for transferring George & Julia Hewitt Shoppelle to me. It means so much. Good luck in all of your genealogical endeavors! I hope to pay it forward...

George Shopelle & Julia Anne Hewitt Shopelle
I am wondering if you would transfer these to me. They are my 2nd Great-Grandparents through my mother's side. She was Thelma Mae McKee Closser McDaniel. So, I'm reading that you are related to most of those you post. Are we related somehow? Thanks for your consideration and any information. Georgi McDaniel Coldren

RE: Elbridge, Perlina and Dayton Hungerford
Denica has done good work but she has created a number of BUs. We have established a Hungerford association (tax exempt) and are building a website containing a database that now has more than 42,000 Hungerford and associated surnames (through marriage, for example, the spouses' surnames are included). We have an ambitious agenda of capturing all Hungerfords world-wide in the database (constantly growing as more Hungerfords are born). The formal name of the organization is The Hungerford Family Foundation, Inc.

Anyway, I bumped into both the Dayton and Perlina memorials and got pretty confused until I noticed that Denica's were BUs from some years ago. Her memorials have much better information, so I'm hoping that Find A Grave merges them rather than simply deleting them. I've captured all of the information that she wrote, however, for inclusion in our database.

RE: Thomas Simpson
I have sent an email to the owner of the other memorial. I have also put Mr. Simpson in the graveyard he was interred in. Thanks so much for your help! I don't want these brave men to be forgotten, and find a grave is a good way to remember them!
