It is the love of family history makes us smile. Each new find, each new puzzle piece brings the story into closer focus. We enjoy roaming old cemeteries and taking pictures that we hope will help others tell their family story.
Any and all pictures we take can be used without any further contact, we took them for your use. Please don't use them to make a profit without our consent. They are for your personal/family use. Thank you for allowing us to help and enjoy your search.
In an effort to eliminate "dead Memorials", I give Find a Grave staff full permission to transfer any of the Memorials I maintain to whomever wants to maintain them upon my death.
We understand that none of us are perfect and we are all volunteers. With that in mind we always try to treat everyone with the utmost respect and hope you will show that to us as well. Together we can do amazing things. Happy Researching!
Re: Martin Dunn d. April 1905 There being two Martin Dunn's in Janesville and a Mrs. Martin but plots do not match, I will just furnish you with the family relationship for you to link. I have not been able to locate his nephew, Edward Carroll in order to link him with his two children buried in Monroe (Joseph and Helen, nor Martin's sister Ellen, who is Edward and Henry's mother. Happy Digging for someone.: * 1900 Monroe, WI Census: List Martin Dunn b. Nov 1833 Ireland, wife Margaret b. Apr 1840 Ieland and their son, Charles E., b. Aug 1876 WI.

RE: Flossie Branscum I have looked at many stones, some stones are preserved but some are just rock markers with no names on them. I will try to get a lay out of the cemetery, & maybe that will help locate the graves. I haven't given up let. Irene Brewer
RE: Flossie Branscum I'm so sorry I could not find the headstone you ask for. I am also related to the Prater's on my dad's side of the family & would have loved to find the headstone. I will go back & look again later.
