Bio and Links
Bio Photo Upon "googling" my great grandmother's name, I found a link to a photo of her headstone on Find a Grave. I was amazed, became hooked on this site, and have been contributing ever since.

My hope is to leave a legacy here for my children, grandchildren, and others by adding data and links.

I am not trying to amass large numbers of memorials. I just try to add data. I enjoy helping others, and I appreciate that others have helped me.

I create memorials with dignity and respect for those who have passed. I will remove a memorial if it is too sensitive for you, and I will remove photos you do not want on a memorial.

Forgive me for not having all burial locations identified. It takes time to research, some whereabouts are unknown, and some obituaries/mortuaries currently do not list burial or disposition details. Those people still deserve to be remembered here.

Unless one of my memorials is my relative or close friend, I do transfer memorials if you can and will add information.

Please let me know if I have an error so it can be corrected.

I try to make edit requests in a timely manner.

I appreciate knowing about added posts to my memorials such as photos or obituary clippings that would help me link family members.

I am happy to share photos with you to use in your family albums. Feel free to contact me.

No worries at all,thank you for responding,so quickly! That's wonderful that you do your local cemetery. I love down the street from 3 very old cemeteries, as soon as I buy a new camera ill be able to see if there's any graves around here that could use photos on find a grave. Thanks again!

Hi Hooked on Family,

I noticed you left a flower on George Moranvilles page 67786695 is his find a grave number. Did you by chance know the Moranville family? My grandmother and Adrian Moranville were married in the 1930's and had a baby boy who passed away after a few weeks. Adrian was Georges son. My grandma remarried later and had other children, and ended up raising me. She never spoke about the Moranville family, so I'm just gathering information. My grandmother was named Mary Wilma Eddleman, but she went by Patricia. Their baby boy that passed was named Joseph William Moranville. He's buried next to Adrians step grandparents in Denver but no headstone according to the photo I have. Thanks so much

John Bridgeman/Bridgman
Go with the edit to the cemetery burials for Bridgman. John & Rhoda Bridgeman memorials are being deleted by administrators since the person who created these memorials is deceased. Found memorials always take precidence over unknown cemetery memorials. I believe the Bridgman name is correct.

RE: Ruth Pelihos
I transferred management to you. No, I do not have additional information on her. She was not a relative or anyone I knew of.

James French Milligan
You have added pictures of the gravestones for Andrew Milligan and his wife, Letitia Milligan. I have spent a couple of year trying to find the actual grave for their son, James French Milligan but have yet to locate any information except that he is probably buried in the Concord Cemetery in Appanoose County, Iowa. This is where his parents were living. Unfortunately, there is no record and no gravestone. Therefore, I have created a cenotaph for him as his name is on the stone with his parents and his sister, Mary. Would you mind adding your picture from the Andrew Milligan memorial to that of James's memorial?

James's memorial number is 162638326
Andrew's memorial number is 16590344

Thank you!

RE: Catherine Kucher Belden
Thank you for the reply. I saw the note at IaGenWeb under listing of Cemetery. When listing the Cem info someone must have seen an obit or note in Cem records to add that info. That would prove that she is the Catherine on 1850 census even though age is way off. Thanks for your contributions. Wayne

You state that when Catherine died, she was survived by sister Amy and brother Amon. Do you know the source for this information? Thank you, Wayne Foster
