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.
Eleanor Koepke

Thank you for transferring his memorial to me, but that was not necessary. He is a second cousin's first husband.
If for some reason you would like the memorial returned to your administration I am willing to do so.
I believe the confusion in the death dates is probably the reason you transferred the memorial to me. The family originally had him buried in Gracelawn Cemetery in Flint. He was disinterred and reburied in Evergreen on July 25, 1991.
Again, thank you, and let me know if want me to transfer the memorial back to you.

Hi! Are you related to Lewis and Grace? Their son Joe was my uncle. If not, would you mind transferring them over to me.

This is a mystery to me, Eleanor. I am the manager of Lena Schwab #50901805 page, I wouldn't ask you to delete it. If you still have the edit message about Lena Schwab, please send it to me.
Thank you.

RE: Lena Schwab
What did I ask from you? Was it linking someone in her family?
Are you talking about Lena Schwarb #50901805

Orval Dean Cowan
Hello there,

I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer the memorial for Orval Dean Cowan to me. I have some information to add and would like to create a bio for him. He was my uncle (his wife, Kathryn Elaine Froats, is my mother's sister).

Thanks for your time,

Ashley Harper
