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.

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.

Dear Daniel,

Am just writing to thank you for your entry of my Grandfather, Edward Peck.

Here we are the family, and none of us took the time to do an entry.

Are you still doing Findagrave things?

Anyway, thanks again for your help.

Anna Mary Landreman (Heindl). I found documentation that indicates this lady died in 1982, not 1962? If I am wrong, please let me know and I will change it.

Hello from Denmark!
To Daniel Allen!

I live here i Denmark, in Ulkebøl very close to Sønderborg. I have studied genealogi in 10-12 years now.
I like to read about your Bonefeld-family in USA.

My grandgrandmother was born Bonefeld in Vestermark, Ulkebøl parish, Marie Kirstine Bonefeld, 1858-1924. She married Jens Christensen Brock in 1882.
Their daugther, Christine Marie Brock, 1890-1933, was my grandmother. I never knew her, she died very young.
My grandfather hired a housekeeper, Anne Cathrine Clausen, we called her Cathrine. Her mother also was born, Bonefeld. Anne Cathrine Bonefeld, born 14. december 1861 in Mommark, Lysabild parish.
It was Cathrines mothers brother, Hans Hansen Bonefeld, who went to USA in 1886 I first found in your family-book.

I like to read about your family over there, I like to see the pictures, thank you very much.

With kind regards
venlig hilsen
Ingrid Petersen
