|Bio and Links|
We have been working on our family geneologies for many years and recognized that many leads can be gleaned from tombstones and cemetery records. When a friend informed us of Find-a-Grave we were thrilled. It is so difficult doing research from afar. The volunteers have been so helpfull to us. We love being able to volunteer our time to help others find and memorialize their family members. |
Some of the family names we are researching are, Ausman, Burgess, Craig, Dodson, Farrow, Iaricci, Lincoln, Mitchell, Murray, Ramaglia, and Zito.

|Bill Hart||Ausman Name|
I just read your bio and see the mention of the me Ausman. I don't know where you live or how much digging you have done on the Ausmans, but between Hope, Calvary & Forest Hill cemeteries in Chippewa falls, Saimt Joseph, Saint Paul & Evergreen cemeteries in Menomonie, and Saints Peter & Paul cemetery in Independence there are at least 100 Ausman burials.

Since you're sure, I changed it. Thanks for the correction.
|albers_ancestry||Earnest Beard, Mound Cemetery, Dunn County, WI|
I have updated the memorial page for Earnest Beard per your suggestion. I also linked him to his parents.
|Cindy Elliott||O Max Hyder|
Do you have any more info on his parents? I could not find them listed in a cemetery in Indiana, no memorial number.
|Davis Arnold||Alonzo Strum photo request|
I checked the Falls View Cemetery records & Alonzo is not listed in that cemetery.
|Will Babb||Dodson family|
While making your changes for the Harveys, I noticed that you also research the Dodson surname. My wife is a Dodson; her family came from Arkansas & Oklahoma. If you have any such connections, please get back to me.
Have a great day,
|Doreene Durant||RE: Tabitha and Levin W. Cropper|
I was wondering if you had come across anything about Tabitha Jane Owsley Cropper, most likely buried near Colorado Springs; when you last communicated, you mentioned something about library records. Could you give me the name of that library and, if possible, the web site? I now know Levin W. Cropper's burial place but I'm still trying to find a burial place for Tabitha.
In case it's necessary, my email address has not changed. It is DoreeneDurant@netscape.com
Thanks for anything you can tell me!

There is a way to add photos to the memorials. Just use the add photo button and select your photo. The photos from the cemetery link I sent you are "From another website and cannot be added to Find A Grave because "they are from another website." But you can add photos of the people, which I hope you will, because there are some of us who have never seen their relatives. Let me know if you need help doing any of that.
I deleted my memorial when I sent you the first email, however there is another one that is from someone else. Maybe you can convince them to delete theirs and let yours stand.

I will check the cemetery indexes I have for Lambton County and ask the Canada Cemetery Project person as well. I only contribute to that project on a voluntary basis and am not officially affiliated with them. There are other Mannen names in Beaver Creek Cemetery and I will check with them first. Because there is still snow on the ground in part of the cemetery, some gravestones are partially or totally covered by snow and there is no index available for it so it's a matter of walking around. The snow cover doesn't help but it is not that large so it isn't a difficulty to do the searching. You can contact me at email@example.com rather than leave a message with Find_A_Grave if you wish. Let me check the other Mannen gravestones I photographed. Some are very worn by the weather and hard to read but I'll see what I can find.
I saw you note about the Peerless Cemetery. I had the information about the burial from notes that my grandmother left behind. She died in 1973 when I was a child and her notes were passed to me a few years ago. From what she'd written I wasn't sure if she'd been there or had just written down the information from another source.
I don't live in Lawrence County but I tried to look up the Peerless Cemetery with the intention of going there to take some pictures, however I couldn't find the cemetery on any maps. I searched the aerial photos of the area pretty thoroughly but found nothing. With your information it makes sense that it wouldn't have shown up from the air.
I suppose the next step would be to try to get in touch with a county historian if I can find one. I don't think it would be a long drive but since it's on private property I wouldn't want to just wander the countryside hoping I'd see it.
I have a Robert Wilson Mitchell in my tree 1786-1845. Could that be the same person you descend from? My line is from his brother, Isaac Mitchell, who is Jacob's father.
Let me know if you would like to trade information. I appreciate the clues to locating the cemetery. I believe my grandmother grew up in a house on Trowbridge Road so perhaps I can use the road to help to find a Trowbridge farm.
