Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi everyone,
What a great site Find-A-Grave is. Ive been doing Genealogy since the 60's and my travels have taken me to many places. I started trying to do my family tree by asking my father if he had information on his (Cross) family. Naturally he said no, but I eventually found a large box with 73 old pictures, some old diaries and papers with brittle paper tape on them and lots of writing.. It was wonderful and I have been filling in the blanks ever since. My grandmother had attempted Genealogy back in the 1800's and gave me many clues on those old papers..
I am a Registered Nurse and since my retirement I'm trying to put whole cemeteries on Find-A-Grave. Many of the Memorials I have submitted are not my relatives. I just thought they might help someone. I am happy to transfer or update any who are not related to me but are related to you.. However please use the Edit button on the Memorial and follow the FAG guidelines for transfers you wish to receive. Some people have not done that and leave off important data so I have not been able to transfer them.
Thanks for creating this site.

I have received several requests for transfers lately that did include your e-mail address and/or membership number. If you will use the edit on the memorial I will receive your membership number. I cannot transfer without it. E. Koepke

Ernest Victor Schnepp
Eleanor, I can not make the edit part work because of an advertisement in front of it. Anyway, I would like to ask for Ernest's memorial as I can add him and our family back to 1731. I think that is a bit too much to ask you to do. I would very much appreciate it. For the infant, I have no clue who it belongs to but will find out.

By the way, do you have a Barbara Koepke in your family??? I do on a Dittemore tree. Would that not be fun if you knew her. lol

Holly Schneider
Hello Eleanor,
My name is Holly Cieslinski, formerly Schneider. My mother is Susan Longcore, formerly Susan Koepke. So, that makes Benjamin Koepke my grandfather.

Hello Eleanor,

Patrick C Bowles is my cousin Thomas P Bowles(87443433) brother. I have a copy of his obituary that was posted on the internet. Would it be ok to post that or should I send it to you?

This memorial (84311772) is a duplicate -- a previous one was created in 2011.

Honoring Their Lives
David Royce's memorial has been sent to you for maintenance. Family should remain with family. Sympathy on the loss of your cousin.

Honoring Their Lives
Query about Ward family
Hi Eleanor, while creating a memorial today noted that you created & maintain the memorials for Dale & Leona Ward and their extended families and have uploaded some heritage photos of them. I wasn't sure if you were aware that their son, David passed away this week. I would be happy to transfer his memorial to you for safekeeping if you are a descendant of this family. The obituary does not reflect if he was buried in the same cemetery as his parents or not. Just let me know. (and incidentally, I am a RN also, still working at a large teaching hospital in Nashville, TN and dreaming of retirement years so I can drag my husband along for some serious genealogy searching!ha!) Warmly, Helen Murphy, Nashville, TN
