Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please read before sending corrections:

I'd very much prefer to transfer a memorial to someone who is researching the person listed than make corrections. Even if you are only distantly related or not related at all. If you know more, you are a better person to manage it than I am. (I do keep management of memorials for my own relatives rather than transfer those to well-meaning non-family members.)

Per Find a Grave guidelines, I do not add obituaries to biographies. Please send citation information (e.g., name of publication, publication date, page number, etc.) instead.

For memorials that I manage, I prefer to have searches for the information on the headstone be able to bring up the memorial. For instance, if the stone says Ethel Jones, I will keep the name listed as Ethel Jones. If Ethel's legal name was Gladys Ethel Jones, I will note that in the biography.

Please use the Suggest any other correction or addition link on the Edit tab of a memorial to request transfer of that memorial.


Feel free to use my photos under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. That means you can use them without asking me so long as you credit me, you don't sell them, and if you make something based off my photos, you must also let people use *that* on these terms. If you do not include attribution when you use or repost my photos, I will send a take-down notice. I don't ask for much. Please just include it so I don't have to be a bad guy.

All my photos are also available on Flickr in higher resolution, as Find a Grave limits photo sizes.

Jacob and Rosina Welk
Any possibility you may have, or know of, a picture of Jacob (39346401) and Euphrosina (Eva Rosina) Welk (39346488). She was a great aunt.

I am Herb Teske, 47375625, and can be contacted at and I thank you for any response.

RE: Rose Coffey Ocheltree
Thank you for the quick reply. I believe it best I just "report a problem".

Rose Coffey Ocheltree
I have added the obit for Mrs. Ocheltree that says she was buried in the family plot at City Greenwood Cemetery. I visited the plot today, and there is no stone for her, only Lester and wife Belle Ocheltree. A stone in a plot large enough for more than one burial is to the rear for John LeRoy Ocheltree.

It seems more likely to me she is buried next to Lester and wife Belle as the other plot is oblong.

I see I also added the obit for her husband, JA Ocheltree, that also says he was buried in City Greenwood. He has no marker either. There is room for two burials to the south of son Lester, although John LeRoy was also a son.

If you wish, I can add the picture I took of the plot with Lester and wife Belle for both Mr. and Mrs. Ocheltree along with a note on my assumption.

I believe I have a photo of her gravestone. I am guessing the photo volunteer couldn't find it because the memorial creator has an incorrect year of birth (it's 1868, not 1859). I will go ahead and download the photo and leave it up to your discretion as to whether you believe this is the correct photo for the memorial; if not, I will gladly delete it...just let me know - thanks!

Jim Cox has done a lot of memorials in the Fort Wayne area -- also photos but I do believe he just enters the info from the books which doesn't always tell what was done. Enjoy your week.
