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.

RE: Ellen L Malloy
I have linked Ellen's parents to her memorial. If you review the duplicate memorials, you will find that I created the memorial in 2007 versus your post of 2014.

Hi Mr McFarland,

I saw your photo of the gravestone my second great grandparents Frederick and caroline (Rohfield) Hacker. I have no information about Caroline Hacker's parents. I wonder if you know their names etc? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

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!
