Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogist at heart and try very hard to find information and links for the memorials I create (and am aware that I am human and do make mistakes) so I am happy to add information and make corrections.

I am also happy to do transfers but please don't send me a transfer request just stating "transfer it to me so I can update it" or ask me to link to "burial unknowns." Every edit or transfer request I receive gets researched and checked against the people buried near them to see if I can find a connection. So please if you have the information, use the edit tab to send the suggestion and THEN ask for the transfer.

Also I create memorials for families so please do not ask for a transfer because you are collecting Civil War soldiers, Pioneers, or whole cemeteries etc. These were real people, not something to be collected and I refuse to treat them as such.

Thank you to all the volunteers that have added photos, send corrections or shared stories or obituaries with me about the memorials in my care. And to those who kindly accept the many edit/link requests that I send out.

A note about photos:
I have been using the beta photo up-loader and one of its quirks is that it doesn't show you if there is already a photo on a memorial. I have tried to delete any duplicate photos I have accidentally added but if you find I have missed one please feel free to let me know.

Thank you.

Re Memorial No. 112780613
I would like to know where you got your information for George's wife Katharina Mueller. She was never a "Keppel" as far as I can find. I refer you to the book, STEPPES TO NEU ODESSA by Cynthia Anne Frank Stupnik, Pages 48-49. Catharina Mueller Diede was my great great grandmother. I am very interested in finding any Diede, Kessler, or Jasmann relative who may have pictures or more information about Catharina.

Thank you and I truly appreciate all the effort you put into genealogy. It is a hard task.

Duplicate entries
Your memorial #143582726 for Augusta Bohanan, dated 2015, appears to be a duplicate for Emma A. Bohanon (memorial #83341456) dated 2012. There does seem to be some confusion about the name, since the death certificate says Augusta, but the stone says Emma A. The grave location is the same, however.

RE: Riverside Cemetery Block 21, Aberdeen, SD
The mystery grave was photographed between Bruce Hay and Bertha Hay. Other Hays were also in the area and a DeForest and Wade headstone. I hope this helps.

RE: Riverside Cemetery Block 21, Aberdeen, SD
I leave the photo numbers on so I should be able to tell you the adjacent graves or a least nearby since some configurations make you skip around. I will take a look and get back to you.

I have a sister that lives in Aberdeen but I don't get up there much. The next time will probably be when my Niece graduates in the spring. I have one more large section, front and center to do in the south cemetery and the east and north rims. I don't even want to think about starting on the north cemetery across the road.

Mueller-Goetz in Faulk Cemetery
Hi Mary,

I see you have found the burial site of my husband's great-grandparents. Thank you for all your hard work!
Louise Goetz Mueller was born in June, 1858 in Baltimore, Maryland.
She married Constantine A. Mueller, a Lutheran minister, on 3 Mar 1879. He was born in Heine, Cuxhaven, Niedersachsen, Germany on 23 Jul 1850.

Their children were Harry Samuel, Mayme Theresa, Clothede (Cloy) Elizabeth, Esther, Walter Samuel. Mayme Mueller Carman was my husband's grandmother.

I am impressed with all the time you must have put into this. Thank you, once again.

Hi Mary,
I believe you have the wrong Leland Whipple Lockwood 1819 - 1891. Leland Sr (married to Catherine Haywood) is buried in Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery. The Leland in Lakewood is Jr who was born 10/25/1860 and died 2/6/1919. He was married to Henrietta Theresa McNamara. You might want to double check this and then edit it. Thank you. Lu
