Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi Everyone - Back when I was 8 years old, my grandpa, Paul Joseph Peter Allen, helped me make a family tree for a school project. Back then we didn't get that far...LOL. In 1999, I found that project and started working on it again. Now I've got over 20,000 people connected to my tree. I think my grandpa would be proud of what I've accomplished, thus my name, My Labor of Love!!! I'm a "Genealogy Pack Rat" and it's time that I shared my findings. I hope I was able to help someone with this information.

Take Care & God Bless -
(a mom of 3 cutie pies)

My goal is to attain what was once lost or forgotten. To investigate and then document my finding to further an ancestry or find a loved one. But most of all, making sure everyone is remembered no matter how short or long they were on this earth or what accomplishments they did or didn't do, that they are remembered and their story is told.

Please use the "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" found under the Edit tab.

First and foremost, you must be related to that individual; (ex: grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, uncle, aunt, cousin, etc...) I really don't care how many generations back, you could be a 4th cousin 5x removed, as long as the lineage is there! If you meet that criteria, please use the Edit tab on the individual that you would like transferred over to your care. Then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information". Please include your Find A Grave ID #, relationship to the individual, and that you would like this memorial transferred to you. I'll transfer anyone that isn't in my family tree. But if it happens to be someone that is, closest relationship to that person wins!

I think it's selfish for people to take possession over a photo taken, so please feel free to use any photos that I post.

Great Great Grandparents.
Thank you for posting the information about my great great grandparents, John Bobeng and Martha Anna Linden Bobeng. I am the oldest great grandchild of their son, Milton Lester Bobeng and his wife Alicia Bobeng. My grandmother and her remaining siblings have recently been digging out and scanning old family photos so as to pass them down to the younger generations to keep and share, so being able to google them and find those listings of their grave sites from you were really great! :D Thank you so much!

Thank you for posting the information about my grandfather, Paul B. Towner. This is the clearest copy of his death certificate that I have seen.

RE: Catharine (née Eaton) Freelove 46617526 vs. 146683558
Thanks for the information on Catherine (Eaton) Freelove. Right now we're touring the midwest, doing genealogy research along the way. We are planning to hit places in Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois and perhaps Wisconsin.

We will be attending two family reunions before going home.

Thank you so much for transferring B. H. "Buck" Bowen's memorial to me. He was my great grandfather's brother. Because he had no known children, he seems to have been a "forgotten" member of my family. I hope to change that.

RE: Death Date vs. Burial/Service Date
Nice to finally talk to you. I am going by the burial records. I just thought it gives someone a date to go by and be within a couple days. Not sure if people will open each memorial to see dates. I don't want to mess you up. Thanks for the info, Bob
