Bio and Links
Bio Photo NE native but MS delta resident since 1970s. Vacation home in northeast AR. Family names of interest NE/IN/IA: Busse, Watson, Washburn, VanBenschoten, Robinson, McLaughlin, Miller. Cemeteries complete or nearly: Cotton Plant AR, Fifty-Six AR, Hillcrest Decatur NE, IOOF Greenwood MS, Sidon Leflore Co MS. Currently working on Heavenly Rest Coahoma Co MS.

Usually only transfer direct-line relatives per FaG guidelines. Those collecting last names or entire families please use Virtual Cem feature.

Since I believe FaG is created to recognize those who came before us please feel free to copy any picture I have taken for personal use. However, some of my memorials have pictures belonging to others. Please check labeling to determine what you copy was actually posted by me. Otherwise you will want to get permission from the actual photographer.

Please submit Edits using link and NOT by emailing. At least 3 times weekly I check for Edits on site. Emails, MUCH less so.

What a wonderful website & what a wonderful way to honor the lives of our ancestors. And thanks and appreciation to those who send Edits to flesh out memorials - always looking for ways to make them better and more complete.

RE: Elmer Darling & wife Lizzie
SANDI 22 MAY: Did your edits on Elmer Darling and parents in Decatur, NE. The edits took out Lizzie Darling as Elmer's wife. However my photo shows them on the same headstone. Is Lizzie his sister or do you know relation between them? They are of my grandparent's generation & I thought they were married - have a vague recollection of Lizzie. Thanks for any info. Sandi

Hi Sandi, I noticed when I requested links to Elmer's parents that it took off the link to his wife as well, but I was going to input that request to reconnect as soon as his parents had been added. Find A Grave only lets you have that type of addition one at a time-LOL! Please reconnect Elizabeth "Lizzie" A. (nee White) Darling as Elmer's wife. MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE! Best Wishes, Kati in southern CA

Ward J Wilson
Dear Sandi K,

I am researching my grandfather's WWI unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History of the 89th Division, Ward J. Wilson was part of this unit. It's entirely possible, Ward J. Wilson may have been transferred before or after he was part of the 355th. Do you have any information what would confirm or disprove this? Dates would be fantastic!

I am looking at findagrave memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 103551348)

I appreciate your help!

RE: Helen & Monroe McClurg
Thanks !! I may have a bit more information forthcoming. Monroe McClurg was from Vaiden, MS - my hometown. There is a book about him at the MS Dept. of Archives and History. I'm going there Monday and should have more info then.

I have recently had contact with another of her descendants, probably the 2nd contributor who is a descendant of George Payton. I'll send you an email with more info. Thanks. Terry

Photo request of my Mother's grave
Hi, Sandi,
While searching for a picture of my Mother's grave, I saw that you added a photo of my uncle's grave (Jack Ditto) at Odd Fellows Cemetery in Greenwood, MS. Record added: Apr 01, 2014
Find A Grave Memorial# 127238382
I am seeking help getting a picture of my Mom's gravestone. Her name is Virginia Ditto Rountree (b.3-13-16 d.4-25-10). She is also buried in the Ditto Family Plot, next to John Everett Gayden. I have been unsuccessful trying to reach the cemetery itself. Could you possibly tell me how I could obtain a picture of her gravestone? Any help you provide will be most gratefully received!
Thank you,
Susie Rountree McNeill

Ida Davis
Hey Sandi,

Sorry no relation, just trying to find graves for photo requests. Since there is no onsite directory at the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Omaha I had to go to the downtown library and look up the findagrave photo requests for this cemetery on microfilm. The microfilm is the burial card index for the cemetery. Any edits I suggested would have based off information gleaned from the microfilm.

It looks like Ida's burial card says she was born in Cherokee, Iowa and died on 10/14/1962 in Omaha. Her age is listed at 75 and her grave location is Section E, Block 6, Lot 7. I hope to locate it in the coming week if possible. I'll make a note to take a picture of the burial card next time I'm at the library.

You might want to contact this person for photos for gravestones - B.L. Piek at
He photographs of most of the cemetery.
You could check out Nebraska Gravestones and see if he has the ones you want. He doesn't want them copied but he has always been good about posting to Find A Grave.
Hope this will help you.

William Brooks
You are correct and I have changed his profile to reflect the correct date. Thanks for the nudge. I have that date, as well, in my updated database. Sourcing for William's birth is recorded in the "Valley of the upper Maumee River: with historical account of Allen County, Indiana, VOL 1" Hope that helps you! Debbie
