Bio and Links
Bio Photo While I have always been fascinated by graveyards, my interest in genealogy started only a few years ago when I started researching my 2nd great grandfather, who died in the Civil War. During that research, I came across this site and my Grandfather Purcell was my first memorial here. Since then, I have found many of my ancestor's gravesites already listed and I have created many more. It's been a fascinating and educating journey.

Most of my father's relatives were of Irish/Scotch/English descent and from Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana, via Philadelphia, Long Island, and Baltimore. My mother's family was among the early Danish immigrants to the Stonington Peninsula in Delta County, Michigan.

Unfortunately, I am a fair distance from all those places and am unable to regularly visit the graves of my family. Find a Grave is the next best thing. I have found many helpful people here that share my interest in preserving our past.

The names I am actively researching are Petersen, Bonefeld, Hoi, Iversen, Allen, Armstrong, Atkinson, Purcell, Ferry, Pollock, Wood, Wiley, Coe and many others.

TRANSFERS, CORRECTIONS, FAMILY LINKS:
I will gladly transfer any memorial of persons to whom I am not related to anyone that is a relative. If I am related to a person and a requestor is a closer relative, I will also be glad to make the transfer. Please make any transfer requests, corrections, or Family linkage requests via the Edit tab on the memorial.

Please be aware that, while I am happy to post obituaries, I will remove the names of individuals that are still living beforehand.

Important: Please include the Memorial Number of parents and spouses when requesting links. I can no longer accept links without this number. I get several requests each day and your update will get done quicker with the memorial number.

RE: Wisconsin
It was be so amazing if I could find anything at all that you don't already have. I will definitely keep you posted as developments turn up (crossing my fingers!)

RE: Wisconsin
There is a lady at the Library who is extraordinary with genealogy... next time I head to the library I will see what she might find.

He may very well remain a mystery... but I will give it a go anyway! The University here is the historical societies repository for a big chunk of the state and has all court documents and basically any information that is findable. I'll check there, too, and see if anything at all turns up.

RE: Wisconsin
If you can detail what info is missing for you, I am happy to wade through some microfilm and search. I am just a mile away from the library! Names, year, and what you are looking for - obituary, burial info, relatives?

I'm sorry. I think I'm done. I found a bunch of old Memorial Day articles from the 1800s and I wanted to give info from that. Thank you so much.

The 2 giant Allouez cemeteries are just a couple of blocks from me so I have been trying to capture as many headstones as possible during these warm months. A few new tools on the Find A Grave site do help speed that process, thankfully.

Should you need any lookups here in Green Bay on your own family I am happy to help.

Thanks again!

Hi Daniel,

As I work on the cemeteries near me, I am always amazed with the staggering amount of work you have done here creating thousands of memorials. I wanted to thank you for what must amount to years and years of constant work.

On behalf of families who have loved ones here, THANK YOU!

You have a Doyle person listed as his spouse. She is not his spouse. He was marred to Lorraine Heim who died June 17 2016.
