Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is all my brothers fault! He's the one doing the genealogy.... He's traced our family Back to 1635 in Germany on my mothers side, and to WASHINGTON and MADISON on my fathers side.

I made the mistake of going for a ride with him one day on a visit to Kansas.... ended up taking 360 pictures for a little(?) cemetery in JACKSON CO, KA (including the new CEMETERY PHOTO,.... and I hate Cemetery photos!!). Since then, I have done 50 complete Cemeteries, Including adding new ones in the State of Iowa, and Chippewa, Grant, Rock & Iowa(2) Counties in WI. and Thunder Bay, Ontario. I'm currently working on 18 in Wisconsin.

As corrections and additions are an important part of FAG, please send all SAC's you have using the EDIT button on the memorial [with 50cemeteries & 17,000+ entries, I don't wish to chase names].

You may use the photos I've posted for your own personal use. Please follow the FAG guidelines regarding credit, etc.

Do not ask for transfers if you are merely "COLLECTING" (IE you have 344 entries, but are "managing" 1250, particularly if you can't even link husband and wives between the memorials that you are managing!) That's what virtual cemeteries are for. Please state your relationship and Number in the SAC when requesting a transfer. If you can't put the relationship in words, perhaps I should retain management of the memorial until someone more closely related requests it. I'm looking for an exact relationship, not "my great-grandmother was a Smith". (If you want management simply to consolidate your relatives, take a look at Virtual Cemeteries as a way to do this.) PLEASE DON'T INSULT ME BY SAYING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD DATA!

I am also now trying to research and add more Bio information for my entries. I have four cemeteries photoed that were done by "inactive" contributors, and expect to get many more transfers to make the BIO corrections and complete the missing links.

My real job is to watch over MY 400+ year old oak, a "Heritage" tree, 16+ feet around. It's one of 9 Oaks over 10 feet in circumference on the farm. We had 8, but a tornado took #2, and opened up the woods, where we found 3 more.

Hi. Have added Albert Smith in the bio section as a brother to Rose Stout. I believe the Erline child you mentioned was a transcription error for Adeline in the 1920 census as Erline does not show in the 1910 and Adeline does not show in the 1920 but both are listed right after Mabel in both census records.

Thank you for the update.

RE: Peter Peil
Hi and thanks for your help with this person. I checked it out and am certain now he is not my g-grandfather. Birth year was the same but wife's info does not match.

mary keleny
Thank you for posting this grave stone (Mary Keleny buried in Saint William Cemetery in Paoli, Wisconsin). I have been searching for information on Mary Keleny for some time! I now have a good clue as to where to find her marriage record. She was married to John J Keleny, who was my great grandfather. Mary died in a tornado that swept through the county on 23 May 1878. They had no children and my great grandfather later remarried to another Mary, who is my great grandmother. I have submitted a correction for the date of death for Mary Keleny, buried at Saint William Cemetery in Paoli, Wisconsin.

Woodlawn Cemetery
Thank you very much for taking the time to get this headstone photo for me. I don't live locally so this is a big help in my tree research.

I am wondering if you saw another Plumley next to her (Porter Horace Plumley)? Trying to figure out where her 2nd husband was buried and was hoping he might be here with her.

You are the reason why Find A Grave works to well... thank you very much for all you do for this site :)

Peter Peil
Hi, You took two nice pictures for this gentleman whose listing number is 89220556. It looks like he has a wife buried next to him. Is there any way you can find and tell me which of the many Peil's in that cemetery was buried with him? His birth year matches my great grandfather and it would be a help to know the wife's name and birth/death years. Thank you so much for all you do on Find a Grave!

Thanks for fulfilling that photo request for young Levi Reeves (10 years old). And thanks for all the great photos you've been adding to memorials in this cemetery. Great work!

Cornman graves
YOU seem to be on top of things in Wisconsin. My Great Grandfather Samuel and his wife Mary had a daughter Ida who died about 1908-1909 she would have been about 10 years old I think she may be buried near her parents as they lived in The Village of Couderay. on the 1910 census. Sam was a saloon keeper He died in 1914. They also has a daughter in law named Ida Cornman who died in 1912. I think she died in child birth as she had a son born in Feb 1912. I know you have snow and cold weather there so put in on your back burner.. Have a nice day
