Bio and Links
Bio Photo Love of genealogy has led to love of sleuthing old cemeteries! Where some people like to go to a park or a museum, I'd rather check out a cemetery any day of the week! A passion not shared by my husband, he does accompany me on my sojourns, and I think he secretly has fun... As for family history, I am a genealogy addict uncovering not only my own family history but that of friends and family (in-law type family) There is so much out there to discover and document!

Most of my memorials are of my own family members. My grandmother was an avid genealogist and compiled most of her side of the family, which I inherited and continue to add to. The other 3/4 of my lineage have been my own discovery, years (and years) of compiling family data (on paper in the early days) and now on sites such as Ancestry.com has made me the Family Historian - now I have another resource to share my collected data: Find A Grave!

My goal is to create, manage and link my ancestry, putting life stories to the people under the stones and hopefully find a few more 'cousins' out there!

I am compiling an extensive FAULKNER Genealogy/Family History. Any/all information on this family I would be strongly interested in. I am also interested in IRONS (Scotland), FRASER (Scotland), O'CONNELL (Ireland), early McBRIDE from Orange Co New York and CZACHOROWSKY from pre-1850 Prussia. States I am interested in are New York, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan and Minnesota.

F.Y.I. I am a volunteer photographer for Bluff City Cemetery in Elgin, IL - any memorial I have created for this cemetery I will happily transfer to a relative - please free free to request! My photos are a gift to the families of the deceased. Please feel free to copy and use as you wish.

RE: Rebecca H Thomas
I wish I could give you more information but I can't. Several years ago on the day after Thanksgiving I photographed the entire cemetery and posted all of the photos. The Warren Co. (Ohio) Genealogical and Historical Society has a great library and collection about the history and residents of the area. I would reach out to them, I think they would be your best bet. I wish you all the best and will hope for a positive outcome! Angie

RE: Forest Bixler
Sorry, that's all I have. The Genealogy Room at the Grand Rapids, Michigan Library has microfilm on the Vets from the Vets Home.

RE: James M Bixler
I was looking through some of my older Bixler notes when I realized that there has been some confusion about your James. I don't know where it started, but I'm sure that it is because he is about the same age as the son of Christian Bixler and Jane Martin. I knew that the death record for your James showed that he was born 16 Feb 1860 (which might be a year off?) in Fremont, Ohio. The location didn't quite make sense, but it was when I was looking more closely at the family of George Bixler and Margaret Barkimer that I discovered where he should fit. I don't think I ever found the family in 1870, but some V. A. info on Forest/Forrest Bixler, the son of George Bixler and Margaret Barkimer, shows that he had a brother James M Bixler of 1837 Morse Avenue in Chicago, which has to be your James. See my notes under George Bixler, memorial number 109908558, for a listing of their children which includes your James. See my notes under Tabitha Bixler Traster, memorial #105300001, for info on her parents and sibs for more info on the other James (50728165), the one who belongs to Christian/Martin.

I also left birth & death edits for Beatrice & Richard. You might not have seen these because Find A Grave has recently changed the edits process, but failed to notify its members. I found out just by chance. To find & process these, you have to go to your home page (where messages are) and then click on the "edits" tab near the top of the page.

RE: Lovina
Yes, that was my photo also. I also took a close-up and have posted that. If you can't read any of the close-up, let me know and I can post what it says. Janet

RE: Katie Faulkner
The picture that Rick put on for Katie was one that I took and he did not have permission to use it. I posted mine and then saw that it was the same as he posted so deleted mine. I can post the picture again and tell you what the stone says if you want me to do that. Janet

RE: John Chalmers
Not a problem. Will get some more photos next time I'm out that way. I enjoy the hunt and its even more enjoyable when I find what I am looking for. I'm sure you would love it over here looking for your own ancestors! :) Marc

RE: Northall Cemetery
No problem. Is quite well hidden out of the way. There are quite a lot of the headstones laying face down which is a shame. Also the pile of headstones all laying together. Sad to see a cemetery in such a state.
