Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired and loving it. Enjoy old cemeteries and photographing the markers.

PLEASE be kind to the VOLUNTEERS who have added the names, dates and grave photos so YOU can find your missing kin and friends.

THANK them for their work! Courtesy and kindness accomplish much.

Provide something other than census records as sources WITH edit requests instead of waiting for the denial to arrive.

A denial is not personal rejection of you. Accept it and move on.

I spend many hours researching edit requests at local court houses, libraries, and online. I often find edit requests have errors and therefore decline as allowed by Find a Grave. If this is a problem for requestors, I transfer management to Find a Grave. The majority of edit requests are approved within the 21 day time allowed. No one benefits from memorials with erroneous information. If there are no grave marker photos, likely the name and dates have been added from an index or other source. If you are a family member and asking for a transfer, please state and explain your relationship.

Thank you to all the volunteers who donate their hours, photos, research and help to others seeking their missing family and friends.

RE: Edit requests for Behling and Frank families
Sorry. I discovered mine were duplicates and (I think) I've merged them. Thomas Joseph's first ex-wife asked me to do this for her children, so they could know a bit more about their Behling relatives. I stumbled across a genealogy and it is a wealth of information.

I have been to the court house and the death year is 1919, not 1914. The marker is wrong. You may want to change it and make a note about the marker being wrong. The obituary and death certificate at Eau Claire Court house agree that the death year was 1919. A Bahr descendant of Ludwig Carl Bahr.

John Miller at Saint Josephs Cemetery

Thank you for posting the picture of John Miller's grave!!

From what I can find with my research, John Miller married Mary E Stubbs on Jun 15th 1885 in Dunn County, Wi. according to my research on ancestry and documented in volume 02 Page 0014 (listed below).

Anyhow, what I was wondering, with all the research that you have done, have you heard or come across any information regarding an obituary for John Miller or the birth of his daughter Mabel? She would have been born in June of 1886. I've currently contacted the archives in Dunn County to see if they have found anything. Mabel's mother remarried in 1896. I do not have any exact date but I believe John Miller must've died after his wedding on June 15th 1895- and his wife's new marriage in 1896. Also, according to the 1900 Census record in Washington for his now 13 year old daughter Mabel, John was born in New York.

I will try to gather more concrete proof and dates, but was wondering if you had seen anything. Wisconsin, Marriages, 1820-1907 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations, Inc., 2000.

Original data: Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services. Wisconsin Vital Record Index, pre-1907. Madison, WI, USA: Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services Vital Records Division

Wisconsin Historical Society. Pre-1907 Vital Records Collection. Madison, WI, USA: Wisconsin Historical Society Library Archives.

Hi. I'm sorry I didn't do a very good job stating who I was talking about. I was referring to Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Dunn County, WI. And the Steves I was referring to were Ella Steves Love, Minnie V. Steves, and Edna Steves Grant.

Hi. I was wondering if you are related to the Steves in Pleasant Valley Cemetery? I am and if you would like to transfer them to me I would love it! I have a lot of information I can add. If you are related too, don't worry about doing a transfer. And I appreciate you putting them up. Thanks!

RE: Blicher family
All 6 Blickers are changed to Blicher and the photos added. Anna, Robert Frederick, Paul, Rev. Peter, Richard Arthur and Verna. Thanks for working through this. It sounds like you had a lot of success between the two cemeteries anyway!
