Bio and Links
Bio Photo The very first thing I want to say is THANK YOU to all of you who send me edits for the memorials I manage. I check Find A Grave almost every day and absolutely love it when edits come my way. I use the edit feature often, and it always lifts my spirits when I see them go through. It reinforces that this site is a community effort and we are all working together to make it as complete and accurate as possible.

I have been interested in genealogy for 30 years and have written over a dozen family history books, the first one being in 1979. The majority of our family vacations in the 1980s & 1990s revolved around cemeteries and visiting relatives. (Our kids ask why there are so many photos of them posing on headstones!)

When I started on FindAGrave, I kept busy adding our own family members. I knew where most were buried but some had to be searched for. In 2013, my husband and I took a trip through Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota and, in the process, found lots of folks to whom we were not related. I've created memorials for them adding as much additional information as I could find. We were able to fill dozens of photo requests; it felt good being able to pay forward all of the requests that volunteers have filled for us.

I endeavor to make memorials as complete as possible, including headstone photos, bios and links. (I have received permission for obits unless the newspapers are out of print or the copyrights have expired.)

Most of my memorials are family members, but I'll happily consider transfers if you are more closely related.

You are welcome to use any of the photos I have posted but I would enjoy hearing from you if you do use any.

FindAGrave has added so much to my life. I love being a part of it!

p.s. I no longer add "burial unknown" memorials, and am working on the remaining 9. At this point, I have 123 cremations, 1 donated to science, 2 lost at sea and 2 in unmarked graves.

RE: Josephine Lee
You are welcome. I am glad that I was able to get the cemetery photographed before the weather changed. Let me know if there are any others that you need. I hope you enjoy your day.

Fred Welker in Bowman Cem., Bowman, ND
Nancy -

In trying to fulfill your request for a photo I found a Fred M. Welker born May 3, 1898, died November 1, 1941.

He was in the armed services. Could you have the birth wrong? If not I made another memorial for the Fred Welker marker that I found. If he's the one you are looking for I will add the photo of his marker to your memorial and delete my memorial. There were several other Welker markers in Bowman.

Best wishes,
High Plains :)

I just want to check for sure if her birth was in COOK Co and not KANE Co. Most of Elgin is in KANE Co. I will wait to hear from you.....thanks.

RE: Richard & Phyllis Hobbs
wish I could help. did find a Darren Kent Hobbs 1960 - 1972 in Barrhead on the AGS Cemetery database, but the list was revised in 2005 so does not have Richard & Phillis on it.
