Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about 30 years, originally to help my brother out. He passed away eleven years ago. I am retired and am carrying on his legacy. It is amazing how much time I spend on the computer every day doing research.

I grew up in Kansas and moved to California around 1958 and have lived here ever since. My ancestry research started out mostly Swedish with some Norwegian. Now with about 10,000 people in my family tree, it includes many nationalities including Irish and English and Canadian. I am mostly focused on Kansas (around Vilas and Chanute, where my family grew up), and also Missouri, Nebraska, California, Oregon, Washington and Arizona.

My Swedish ancestors came over mostly around the 1870's from the mainland and the Island of Gotland and then settled in Kansas. My records go back to the 1500's.

My goal in Find-A-Grave is to provide as much information on a memorial as possible for the benefit of others. I use daily for research and have accumulated a lot of solid info.

RE: Margaret Schmidt # 95803140
Thank you for adding the bio. Margaret was a distant cousin, and I'm trying to get all her many siblings linked up. She was quite a character, and her story deserved to be shared. Thanks also for adding the link to her son, which I meant to do but forgot!

RE: Darwin Benton # 133290860
Your welcome. I thought I was going to strike out on this request as I looked at a few hundred graves in the more recent burial areas and had pretty much given up. I decided to look in an old area for some 1920's requests and there he was.

Hi, I have deleted my memorial and added the photo to yours. Glad to have her with a relative. I had her son 27826119 listed also on mine, if you want to add. Thanks!

RE: William Beckman
He is buried in the mausoleum. This is a permanent marker on the outside of the mausoleum about six feet high.
