Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy for over 20 years and have found resources like FindAGrave to be very helpful.
I believe that one should give as much as they take, thus I've become a contributor to this site.

Transfers and Photos

Since I am not related to most of the memorials I've created, I will gladly transfer them if you are family of the person memorialized. Please feel free to use my photos for personal use, for other purposes I ask you credit me as the photographer.

Obituaries

Find A Grave prefers that volunteers not add obituaries to their memorials due to potential copyright issues. However, since obituaries and death notices published before 1923 are in the public domain (see How Long Copyrights Last), I will add them. Please do not request the addition of obituaries or death notices published in 1923 or later. If you would like to write an original biography, however, I'll be happy to post it, with attribution.

Please DO NOT add images of death certificates to my memorials. Missouri Death Certificates are readily available here.

Mary Olga Johnson Blanchard
Mary Olga Johnson Blanchard if you look at the dates on the headstone is the mother of George J, Glen R And Zola Hall. Her husband George Lee Blanchard born in Iowa and died before 1900 I do not know where maybe Nebraska maybe they divorced I have only found her as widowed and living with her 3 children in all the census records I have found. As it says on the small headstone Mother on the larger headstone if you check the dates I do not think she would born in 1866 in Denmark and be the wife of her son George J Blanchard born in 1886 in Nebraska. I am related to Zola's husband he is my first cousin Alonzo Albert 'Lon' Hall and died in Kansas City 1930 in a car accident and is buried in St Joseph, Mo.

Would appreciate your correcting this.
Thank you, Pat Shaw

Albert Genzler
Just wanted to say thank you for posting the tombstone for Albert Genzler. He is my great uncle and was adopted as a child after both his parents passed away. Nobody could find any information on him until I found the photo you posted, and that led to finding his death cert. and to finding articles on his death. Your work on this site has led to us finding a lost Uncle and is very much appreciated.

Sharts Family
Dear Mr. Huffman,
I am married to a member of the Sharts family and can provide you the following family connections:
Forrest Marion Sharts (#96106869), born on 14 April 1889, in Clark County, Missouri and died in June 1982, in Johnson County, Kansas. He is the son of Roy Sharts (#44173751) and Ruhama Jean Clay Sharts (44175782). He was married first to Ina Ada Sylvester Sharts (#96106807), born in 1902, and died in 1978. His second wife was Lottie E. Kurr Sharts (#33011616), born on 23 March 1896, in Missouri and died in 1981, at Kansas City, Missouri.
He and Lottie were the parents of:
Betty E. Sharts (#51274706), born on 15 February 1922, and died on 2 April 1942. I know she married in 1940, Norman Reynolds, but cannot tell you why her married name does not appear on the gravestone.
As for Charles Henry Sharts (#77493442), born on 11 April 1881, in Nebraska and died in May 1966, at Kansas City in Jackson County, Missouri. He was the son of Ernest T. and Helen S. Sharts. He was married to Mabel Frances G. Ford Sharts (#77493495), born in 1892, in Kentucky and died in 1971, in Missouri. I currently find no connection between Ernest T. Sharts' family and Roy Sharts' family. Roy's family is German and immigrated to New York in 1710. Ernest comes west from Pennsylvania and I suspect he descends from the German Sharts of Maryland. Similar surname, but not known connection.
Best regards,
Gerald W. von Kamrath (#47154658)
San Diego, California
