Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you have updated information to add to a memorial, we will be happy to add information or family connections for you...just click the "edit" button and post the update. If you are closely related to the person on one of our memorials we can transfer the memorial to you. We are also happy to let anyone copy the tombstone markers that we have posted. That is the reason for posting them... so that family can see family. We only ask that you give full reference/credit to the person who took the photo and posted it to Find-A-Grave. Photos are the property and copyright of the person who took them and they must be given credit. We've noticed a lot of people snag photos from memorials on Find-A-Grave and upload them to their own websites without any credit to the person who rightly OWNS THE PHOTOS.

RE: Alvin / Albin Blodgett, # 78528298
I added a biographical sketch for Silas Blodgett (Memorial# 70466375) from the "History of Dunn County, Wisconsin" (1925) page 506.

When these sketches list so much information for the children, I try to find their memorials and connect them with their parents. That was the case here.

I did a wide search for Albin's memorial and saw your note on Alvin's memorial saying his name might be Albin and I thought that since his birth date was the exact date of birth written in the 1925 sketch - wow, it was a good matching discovery. But you are right - I don't know for sure. If Alvin's memorial hadn't mentioned the name Albin I wouldn't have thought about him. While it is true these old written accounts are not 100% accurate and the 1925 sketch says Albin was in Siloam Springs, Ark. - no proof of any connection to Missouri where Alvin is buried. I'm sorry I jumped to a conclusion. You probably already knew that his birth date matched. I know how hard it is finding ancestors, so again I apologize.

RE: Emma Marie Grosche
I did sent the updates to you for the Grosche family names and dates. I also sent the link for Emma's parents. They are not related to me. I just found them in looking for my Grosche family. Thanks for taking care of them.

Lynda--Need some help before I post pics. Mem 113129245 for Florence L Roloff-- Your memorial lists Sophia Robinson as spouse-however she is on a marker with John Robinson.Florence is on a marker with Albert Roloff(1892-1985). I believe Florence to be the wife of Albert--what is your thought??

RE: Elihu Carey
I have never been to the Old Congretational Cemetery so I don't no how or who put that entry in that cemetery. I saw that entry and knew it wasn't right so I put up the picure that I took back in 2002. There was very few, liked less, then 5 graves in Old Hulse Cemetey from what I remember. My daughter and I found the cemetey by walking through a corn field[with permission] and found the stones in a group of small trees and brush. At the time we also found a piece of stone with just the date of Aug 13, 1826 which is date of death for Amelia but never took a picture of it. I live 3 hrs away and never found the time togo back,yet. Let me know if you find anymore information. If you have any question feel free to ask.

I wish to thank you for entering the data on John H Shoemaker, Tillie Shoemaker, their son Glen and spouse Ida Mae. I have spent years trying to find my great aunt and uncle's death years. Tillie is actually Mathilda "Tillie" Painter. But was always called Tillie by the family!

RE: Helen C. Benson
Linda! Did I thank you, I am behind myself ;). Been doing too many corrections and updates, seems all I do anymore ... I enjoy them being linked tho seems important to me to have the family together. Besides it is time consuming as I research everything I can to try and get it right... Seems my goal of doing my family tree and connecting them to Find A Grave is a huge job :) for me at least. Is my contribution as so many memorials already made compared to years ago when this started. When I first started was so hard to find where relatives and kin were buried!!
