Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a volunteer photographer for Find-A-Grave. Feel free to copy my photos (unedited and uncropped, please) for use on other websites like All I ask is that you attach the following credit so others know the original source and can contact me if needed:

by MixedStock at Find-A-Grave. Photo used by permission.

I manage many memorials outside of my family and am happy to transfer per the rules or make changes and corrections. Please send your source along with corrections. I've had people submit corrections on my own relatives that I knew for a fact was wrong. So please, supply your sources. As the saying goes, if you don't have a source it is "mythology," not "genealogy!"

I also do not add missing birth dates to memorials by subtracting the age of a person given on a stone (e.g., 72 yrs., 6 mos. & 14 ds) from the year of death that is engraved on the stone. My own research has confirmed that frequently the given death year or the person's age on the stone is wrong, and, therefore, the calculated birthdate will also be wrong. So if the stone does not give a birth date or year, I don't add one without corroborating documentation that references the actual birth date. Yep. It's a pet peeve.

As for my personal genealogy research, I am just traveling this very interesting road and uncovering the roots of ancestors who left few records in their wake. If I can help someone make that connection I am happy to do so!

RE: Cora Wotring Ely
I have eons of Woodring/Wotring records and I will have to go thru them again to find where I came up with Ely as a middle name. I only have her down as married twice 1) Boss and 2) Murdock. Give me a few days to dig thru the records.

Winchell Family
Hi - Don't worry about the extra photo. I started to claim some in Forest Hill and then realized it was still a little early in the year for photos I like to take (outside of the daffodils at some of the sites). I will email you the 1870 Fed census with Flora's name along with a familysearch document for her death (sort of). There is also supporting documentation that Alexander Winchell was in Germany at the time. Some of this information comes from Donna Coleman who has left memorial flowers on the various Winchell memorials.

Thank you for your effort to locate a grave marker for Mary Steiner's memorial. Your volunteer photography is greatly appreciated. Sorry the memorial created did not indicate no marker.
