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

RE: Van Tifflin Evergreen Cemetery
Hi Eleanor
I was adding photos and linking family members of the Van Tifflins and there were several duplicates with different spellings. When doing a search for the names, with different spelllings, it was very confusing. Some of the memorials had pictures and some had Bios. There were several people adding memorials for the same person with different spellings of the name. I was just trying to clean up the mess by everybody using the same spelling. Maybe you have some different ideas. Thanks Rick

Van Tifflin Evergreen Cemetery
Hi Eleanor
I found many duplicate Memorials at Evergreen Cemetery due to several different spellings of Van Tifflin. I just wanted you to know why I sent so many edit requests. I tried to keep the Memorials that had pictures attached to them.

Hi Eleanor -

I appreciate the transfer of Daniel to me. It may take me a while to update the memorial as we are leaving tomorrow morning for our trip back home. I'll get on it as soon as we are settled back in.

Thanks again.

Infant Chase
Thank you Eleanor for the transfer of "Infant" Clyde Chase. I will pass it on to my 2nd cousin that has done a lot more Chase research than I have. It will still show you as the original contributor. Thank you for all the work you have done, it helps everyone that is searching.

Is there any regarding the parents of Donald D. Cronkright? There's a Donald Cronkright in my family tree but it doesnt show his birth or death date.
