Bio and Links
Bio Photo "When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner




Hello,

First of all, I would like to thank the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.

Find a Grave is kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.

Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"


I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates and a cold hard stone on their memorials. It is because of that I try to add as much information as is available to me.

When making CORRECTIONS & TRANSFERS
Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES

If I SUGGEST A CORRECTION to you, please copy and paste the info into the bio and add dates and places in the appropriate fields so they can help others locate the memorial. Maiden names and links to parents are also helpful. If you want to see my sources please just ask. You can also check the memorial, as over the last three years I have been trying to give credit to those that submit valid info in the bio of the memorial.

PHOTOS:
I spend a lot of time traveling, photographing, editing and posting my photos because I love doing it. It also gives me a lot of satisfaction if I can help others find their family. I do not mind if you use the photos for PERSONAL use.

TRANSFER REQUESTS:
I do not transfer to requesters who are rude/demanding, have no profile or who are collectors -- however,I'll always update and link memorials within a day or two or as time allows.
Transfer requests should be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.

Keep in mind, those of us who list these memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.

The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.

I am of the belief that no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten.

So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

Thanks for the heads up on Alfred Roelker. I am not sure how I missed his memorial. Thanks for maintaining it. He was an uncle.

Rose Ella Cochrane Corbin
Calmly,

The birth year on Rose's gravestone is not correct. Census records persistently report the year as 1884, which means she's the daughter of DeWitt Cochrane and Rose Elizabeth Parrott. She also reports her parents were both born in Wisconsin. DeWitt and Rose Parrot were born in Wisconsin. Agnes was born in Illinois. Rose Elizabeth Parrott died 8 Feb 1884. She had married DeWitt on 8 Mar 1883. She died in childbirth, but Rose Ella survived. DeWitt and Agnes reported they didn't marry until Aug 1890 in the Census of 1900. I noted Emma DeEtta's, their first-born, birthdate was 29 Jun 1890. The implications for both marriages is obvious.

Rose Elizabeth Parrott was my second great aunt. If you have other documentation that bridges this gap in perspectives, I'd most certainly like to see it. Rose Ella never knew her birth mother, and I am curious where the 1886 date might come from.

Hi,
As to the reason I have him listed as burial unknown.

There is nothing in his obit stating he is buried in Roselawn, the obit states there was a funeral service but not that there was a graveside service or internment which they usually say but haven't, there was no mention either on the Roselawn Site. Am I reading this wrong??. Do you know if he was buried at Roselawn??.
Thanks for your help
Vaughan
