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: Samuel E. Stockwell
I just wanted to send you a quick update. Because you went above and beyond what I had requested (a photo of my father's headstone) and included a copy of his obituary on file, I have been able to locate my siblings and am in contact with my family.

I was adopted at 21 months of age and have been on a quest to find information about my father's family since 1977. I had names and birth places, and actually had found gr-grandparents through our genealogy research, but I've been unable to identify my father's family or learn anything about his life. Your inclusion of my his obituary closed the circle for me and made it possible to finally positively identify him and open up the possibility of a relationship with my siblings. I'm 65 years old and for the first time in my life, I have photos of my father, know some of the family history and have siblings I never knew existed. And, all this because you took the time to help me out with a simple request!

The words "thank you" hardly contain the expression of appreciation in my heart toward you for taking the time to go above and beyond the call of duty. If you ever need a recommendation for your work as a cemetery transcriber or volunteer, please let me know because I'll be praising God for you for the rest of my life!

God bless,

When you get a chance will you look at Highland Cemetery,Ypsilanti, Washtenaw, Michigan and see if you can find a burial record for the following people there;

Frank LeRoy Miller, Sr.
Birth: Oct. 23, 1884
Death: Sep. 8, 1971

Frank LeRoy Miller, Jr.
Birth: Apr. 23, 1910
Death: May 1, 1981

Death: May 16, 2006

Ellen "Ella" Couch Thayer Miller

I've made Find A Grave Memorial for these family members, but need to verify where they
are buried at.

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.
