FaG gives us an opportunity to highlight our blessings through the lives of our loved ones. Each life is a gift to be celebrated, no matter if it lasts one day or 100+ years. And each life is complete and necessary in ways we can only begin to imagine.
Me? I enjoy researching old photos I collect and linking them to their FaG memorials, preserving them for future generations.
Picture St. Leger Neal I noticed that you posted a picture of St. Leger Neal. I don't think it is the same St. Leger. The bottom picture (man seated) is St. Leger, father of William F. Neal, Adam (sons standing behind him).
The eyes in the picture you posted don't look like the same man.
Find A Grave Memorial# 34884512 Awesome photo of James Elliott and Annette Raiford Trott! These folks were my mothers grandparents, Nannie Mae was her aunt. My moms mom (Nannie Maes sister) was Evelyn Raiford Brasher (Trott).
Rothe Hello - I found an obituary for Ingeborg K Rothe. I created a memorial on Find A Grave - 145929389.
I found her children mentioned in the obituary. I don't know where two of them are buried.

Knute Rothe Julia passed away on August 30, 1939 not 1930.
Note: On June 5th, 1932, Roselawn Memorial Park was dedicated at 401 Femrite Drive in Monona, WI. On this day, there were plans and promises made to develop roadways, plant trees, and assemble structures. By 1938, these dreams were achieved with rapid fulfillment.
In his first wife's, Julia, obituary. It had a daughter listed, Mrs. Vinson Krapfel, Madison.
I found an obituary for a second wife, Clara Amble Rothe (Find A Grave Memorial# 55269233). He married her in 1940. She passed away on April 13, 1962 in the Stoughton hospital.
Ellen McCarthy Thank you for all the edits on the McCarthy family and for the information about Ellen's birth location. I have added that to her bio. Saint Augustine Cemetery is a lovely small rural cemetery and the church is still an active church. I believe the area looks very much as it did during the McCarthy's lifetimes.
I accepted Mattie to Martha J. with Mattie as her nickname, but I ignored Doctor because I found his as "Dock" on the 1900 census but in 1880 he was just Alexander. Those two census records has him working in a distillery and the coal mines, so I know he wasn't a physician. I ended up putting "Dock" in his nickname and left the "D" by itself.
