Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in Genealogy for several years and enjoy discovering my ancestors.

I post my direct lines*, so if you are a cousin that has a correction, added info, please msg and say, "Hello!"

The Family names I'm researching are:

Barber, Bell, Bethe, Clark, Cluggage, Davis, Esser, Gehret, Gemmill, Gerichs, Halwes, Humbert, Isett, Judy, McCarthy, Moyer, Murphy, Nix, Osborn(e), Riley, Schoedler, Steel, Stewart, Susott, and Whetsel.

For Researchers: If you plan to use personal photos & bios from my entries, proper credit would be appreciated.

For Find A Grave Contributors: If I ask for a site transfer, I'm related to the person, can prove it, and will give them a loving and proper memorial. Links will be added and in some cases, obits, biographies or photos. I've done my research and would like credit for my hard work.

For Find A Grave Hoarders: The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

Your name stays as creator, but Family provides the meaningful & accurate memorial. We know the person. You don't. A Thank you would be appreciated because Family is giving you updated information. Since you see it as Real Estate, Family members made your land more valuable. Family deserves acknowledgement.

A huge thanks to the cemetery walkers. Headstones document family lines and leaves a legacy for future generations.

Thanks a million to those who have transferred to my account!

Wishing All smooth sailing with discovering YOUR ancestors and no brick walls in your path.

Peace to all that are here and beyond.

*with the exception of Rosemary Cemetery in Sarasota, Fl. If you have family buried there, please ask for a transfer. I'm not in it for the numbers. I feel strongly that a memorial should belong to family.
2014 Update: The new edit feature has made updating memorials a lot easier for everyone. I want to thank those who contributed corrections & new information. Truly appreciated!

Let me know what you do.

Good afternoon Sir/Ma'am. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials, and the information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request. Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck! Ace

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year I successfully completed 200 photo missions at just Forest Home that had the grave location information provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year I have victoriously concluded 900 photo missions with 150 triumphs already in 2014.

Dudley L Bartlett
I think I just found his parents. George R 1856-1916 and Mary McHugh 1860-1946. George is the son of Nicholas Bartlett so if you would please transfer.

Dudley Legoria Bartlett
I am having a hard time on this one as I can not find who his parents really are. It shows George and Mary and you show dates on the memorial of 1893-1969 and on the Veteran Burial card it just says 3-15-93 to 1-30-69.
Can you help me a little more on this one so I know if it needs to be transferred or not to me.

Sandra, I see no one has tried to get a picture after you reposted it asking for one. I am going to see what I can do to try and get one.
I do not remember how you are linked to her? My wife is the Bartlett in our family and if you re not linked would you be kind and transfer this memorial to us. Number 50675492

Esser / Gottlund
I wondered if you would like Jane .. I don't need the Gottlunds, the other lady I mentioned has more capabilities than I, and I, (Like You) am not a hoarder. I have known the Gottlund family since I was born and attended "Pluto" and Jane's wedding in Kutztown when I was about 13 years old, I will probably be adding info to the other arms of the family in the next few weeks, triggered by death of another long-time friend of both families, but won't be needing any transfers. Thanx for asking.

I like the way you do business. Good luck with your cemetery full of duplicates, I've been there. The Find A Grave management has been good to deal with where I've had non-response problems. Keep looking up. ... Jerry
