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.
Eleanor Koepke

RE: genealogy
Hi again,
So here is the info pertaining to Marvin Erickson #83796120. I would like it if his parents could be added to his memorial page. Father is Martin # 130922647 and mother is Gladys # 130922582. My aunt is Marvin's sister and I wanted to show her his page but I thought it would be better if his parents were on his page first. Thank you so much, J Fearing

Hello, Weeks ago I hit the Edit button and put in an addition suggestion to add his parents. I still have not heard anything on this. It usually takes only a day or two. Has a problem come up with this? Thank you for your time and a response, J Fearing

RE: Marty Wolverton
Good Morning: Lovely morning in Cadillac. My wife was living here when your husband was in Cadillac- what was his name and did he have a practice with other MD. I was born here and left
for the Korean War- married in NY and came back home in 1966- best move I ever made cause that's when I met & married Wanda. Thanks for the email. Best Wishes, Jim

RE: Uriah Cross
Ok, I'll just stick with the obit I have.
Any idea as to his place of birth since I can't find a listing for Dundas?

Uriah Cross
I have a obit typed out by a librarian and do not know it it is the same as the one you have for Uriah.
I tried to edit his place of birth but there is no Dundas Co. listed as an option.

Susan is my 4th great grandmother. Do you remember how you got her record? Was there a stone or did you use cemetery records? Sandi

Ola A Pearson 84558230
Such great work you're doing! When you have time, please check something if you don't mind. This memorial states that the death certificate indicates place of birth as Pocahontas Arizona. I believe it was Pocahontas Arkansas-- a small town near where I grew up. Ola married a Pelts first, and then married Harley C Pearson when she was about 40. They married in Arkansas, not too far from Pocahontas. Thanks so much! Tom in Memphis.
