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 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.

Regarding my previous comment, this is a yet another Patrick Ballingal, this one died at 6 1/2 years young.

Find a grave memorial 118863494
This is a duplicate of 118863525 both for Patrick Ballingal. The duplicate entry has the wrong date and misses the links to his family.

RE: edits
I do not remember the edits I suggested but from memory it was the full death date. I make use of the ScotlandsPeople web site were I found full details of her death and burial.
Your computer glitch was interpreted by the adminitrators as a rejection of my edit; they sent me an email about this.
I will apply the edit again.

I saw your message on Hachaliah's Find a Grave memorial that he is your ancestor. He was the founding pastor of Stockwell UM Church. Do you have any information about him? Our church would love to learn more about him. Any help would be appreciated. You can email me at if you are willing. Mark Berg

RE: George Bicksler

You are welcome and thank you for acknowledging the photo. I have seen a number of stones like this in central Pennsylvania. Many are in very good condition. They seem to survive the elements better than the old marble slabs. Some are obscured by biological growth and I don't know how easy it is to remove. I don't clean nonfamily markers. I don't want to be responsible if something goes wrong.--Storres

I'm so glad Family has found Family! I've transferred Miss Sallie's Memorial to you. I received the Lakeside Cemetery Register for the Royal Gorge Museum and Historical Society. They are your best bet in getting any information on your Great Grandmother. They're really very cheap. Please try the address and phone number on Miss Sallie's Memorial!

Take care.

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
