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 50 Plus cemeteries & 20,000+ 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.

If asking for transfers, follow FAG's rules and make the request using the EDIT button. State your specific relationship and member no. I will not chase names in my 20,000+/- entries.
Do not ask for transfers if you are merely "COLLECTING" (IE you have 34 entries, but are "managing" 250, particularly if you can't even link husband and wives between the memorials that you are managing!) That's what virtual cemeteries are for.
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.

I don't need your shame McFarland. I washed them off when I was done. I understand the controversy over the practice, but if the choice is not to do it, and have it be illegible forever, or do it once, photograph, post online for all who want it, and wash it off, I will do it everytime I need to.

I went out on my own dime to do an act of kindness for someone. I do just as much free research and photographing and posting as you, so please get off your high moral horse. Comments like yours only hurt the cause of free volunteers putting in the time and effort to help others.

Thank you !!! I had despaired of anyone ever finding a trace left of Demsey's tombstone there; like his father's (my ggg-grandfather in Crawford county Illinois) I'd thought it was forever lost. And thank you for the others there, the infants, and all. You take such beautiful pictures. What a wonderful thing to do.

Amos and Hannah Munger
First, I am so happy you have made memorials for this family--I have been looking for some time and just now found them at Rutland Center Cemetery. Amos was the brother of my 2nd great grandfather. I have some additional info on this family, also daughter Minnie Spooner and grandchildren, and Hannah's parents. If you would like to transfer them to me that would be fine, otherwise I can just do the edits. Would you mind if I copied the headstone photos for my tree? That is really my primary request. Thanks.

RE: Richard Gamer Sr.
Thank You so much for the transfer and all the helpful tips! It is much appreciated. I have been doing alot of work on completing and extending our family tree. While we have the history part, it was finding where the burials are which actually led me to the site.

I do plan on spending alot of my extra time visitng these cemeteries and taking as many photos as I can each time. I actually love to visit old cemeteries just to see the history of it. I plan on being an active contributor and am looking forward to full filling requests myself. Again, thank you for the transfer and for all you do for the site!

Richard Gamer Sr.
Hi,I am new to virtual cemetaries and am but am wanting to start a virtual cemetery for my family on both my fathers side as well as my mothers since I have been doing alot of work on our family trees and have would really to start out with my Father: Richard A Gamer Sr. # 68906895

We finally got his stone laid this week after many delays by Roselawn. Would it be at all possible to have this transferred to me? Since I am unsure of the process I wanted to start with you since you so graciously added him and obviously know much more about the site.

I have more photo's, obit's etc of him as well as his father who he is buried by and his grandparents etc.

Thank You!

Junior Hansen
In the Prairie Mound Cemetery in Oregon, WI, is a simple stone with the following inscription:

Junior--son of Martin and Marie Hansen--1930 to 1935

The Find a Grave page mistakenly lists his year of death as 1936 but it should be 1935.

Real name was Martin Neal Hansen.
Father was Martin Charles Hansen, buried in Union Cemetery, Mt. Horeb, WI.
Mother was Marie Catherine Christensen buried in Chewelah WA as Marie Carson. 1900 to 1986

I am the granddaughter of Marie and Martin. My mother, Evelyn, was the older sister of Junior and tragically was holding his hand when he pulled away and ran in front of a car and was killed. She never got over her anguish for that day. His actual dates of birth and death are 8 April 1930 to 19 Jul 1935. He died in Verona, WI.

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.
