Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about 25 years, originally to help my brother out. He passed away ten 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 8,800 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: Headstone photos
Thanks. The dog and I had a good day Friday; I was glad I found a few photos to fulfill requests.

And I haven't given up (yet) on Clara Anderson in Brantford Covenant!

I do not know anything of Walter B. Turner's wife - yet! I just ran across him while gathering more info on my Elliotts and Turners. See, after Walter's father, William Turner, died, Martha V. Butler remarried, to William's cousin, Elias Elliott. Of course, Elias Elliott was the widower of Martha V. Butler's sister, Idress E. Butler.

My first great grandparents, Asa Wilson Elliott and Viola Ruth Turner (married 1888 in Brunswick), were first-cousins-once-removed. I don't have a Family Tree - I have a Family Thicket!

I did the atDNA thing, and am looking for surnames where I might match up with distant cousins I never knew I had. As you can see, my family loves my family!

Thanks for posting this distant cousin. Her father was named Walter B. Turner. Her paternal grandparents were William Turner and Martha Victoria Butler married in Chariton Co MO around 1853. William Turner was born 1828 in KY, and was the eldest half-brother of my great grandmother, Viola Ruth Turner.

RE: Animated flowers
Hi. :-) If you'll just click on any flower that you see on a memorial, it will give you the option of adding it to your scrapbook. Then click on "add a flower" and click on your scrapbook when you're given flower options. Whatever is in your scrapbook will appear. I hope that makes sense. If not, let me know, and I'll try to explain it better.

RE: John W.A. Murphy
It is no problem, I live about 3-5 blocks from the cemetery.

Yes I did take a photo of his grave and I will upload it to his page if you want.

RE: Stockholm Northern Cemetery
Norra begravningsplatsen Northern Cemetery) and Stockholm Northern Cemetery are the same cemetery and one of Stockholm's 11 cemeteries.

I have changed my memorial to Norra begravningsplatsen/Northern Cemetery, but I still consider that Stockholm Northern Cemetery is a more correct and appealing name.

I have not notified Find A Grave. I have done so in other cases, but they didn't listen.

It is a 8 not a 3, look at the new photo I put up it is very clear. The problem is the original photos were taken at an angle not strait on.
