Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired teacher from Wisconsin who became interested in genealogy in the fall of 2012. I'm looking forward to learning more about ways to find out information about my ancestors and my husband's ancestors.

I am more than happy to make additions and/or corrections to memorials. Please use the edit key rather than leaving a public message. If you are a relative and would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please submit that request through the edit key as well. If I am not a relative, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you.

When I take photos at cemeteries, I like to take a wide shot if possible to include other family members. I usually create a caption for the photo saying who is in the photo. To see the caption, just double click on the photo. I also use the abbreviation OSSW (on same stone with) frequently when two or more people share the same stone.

I am granting permission to use any photos that I have taken for any non-commercial use. It would be appreciated if you would acknowledge that the photo came from me. Please feel free to use them on family trees and other websites.


Please check out the virtual cemeteries that I have been working on. If you have any information that you would like to share with me, please use the edit key or send me a public message through Find A Grave.

I enjoy photographing entire cemeteries, creating new memorials, and adding photos to existing memorials. I try to do a quick search to see if I can document family relationships. Before I go on to the next cemetery, I try to make sure that duplicate memorials have been removed and all memorials are actually in the correct cemetery (when possible).

Listed below are the cemeteries I have completed so far by county. The first year listed is the year I photographed the entire cemetery. The second year, if listed, is the year I last walked through the entire cemetery again looking for updates.

Note: 99.9% of all Find A Grave contributors are wonderful people. However, there are a few people who operate outside of the Find A Grave guidelines. There are some people who create memorials for relatives and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers like me to find their relatives and create memorials for them in a given cemetery. Then after the relative is found, the person sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. This has happened to me on more than one occasion! Please don't do this to Find A Grave contributors who work hard walking local cemeteries and taking countless photos.

If I happen to find one of your relatives you have been looking for, please send me a thank you through the edit key, remove your memorial, and request a transfer. I will be more than happy to honor your request. I might even be willing to move my photos over to your memorial and delete mine under certain circumstances.

RE: Emma Knutson # 110212103
These are my ancestors. A Genealogist in MN specializing in Norwegian ancestry, helped me locate them in a church records in Illinois. Holt, she told me, is the city they were from in Norway. Norwegians that immigrated to the US wanted other Norwegians to know where they were from in Norway, so sometimes the city they were from was attached to their name. I think names would be better served to have the city name Holt, or any other city, in parentheses after there given names, to make locating people easier. From Wikipedia: Holt is a former municipality in Aust-Agder county, Norway.

RE: Moses H. Bowen #99094069
Thanks so much for your note. I am pleased that your gravemarker photos confirm my assessment that this Moses Bowen was indeed the soldier who served in the 3rd Wisconsin Battery during the Civil War, and I will change my note on his memorial page accordingly.
Much appreciation,
Lou Mosier

RE: Philip Lavanway
Yikes, that was sure a rugged open hole where Philip rests. I was worried about slipping into it too! Hope he gets a proper marker this year. I'll remove my pic from his memorial. take care, Marty

RE: Edward, Elizabeth and Florence Gehrke
Thanks! And it certainly makes sense Florence would be the unnamed child - good to have all the names. And the memorial really does have 1865 as Edward's birthday. I just don't think that can be right, but often times the dates aren't perfect. Still, someone among Edward, Julius, Frederick, or Theodore (or more than one of the above) was not born the date their gravestone said they were.

Thank you for writing about Mary Inda. I have removed the memorial I had established last year. I will change the information in my tree also.
My grandmother maiden name was Inda and I am distantly related to the branch in Waushara County.

RE: William Wallace Chase #141109652
Thanks Janet. I'm a 65 yr. old grandma who is still learning to use this blasted machine. I wasn't too sure what to do. I'm a little hesitant about some things because I have a tendency to push a button when I shouldn't have. When that red flag comes up in my brain, I'd rather be causious then create more of a probelm then I already have. What's even funnier, if ya want to call it funny, sometimes I don't realize I've pushed that wrong button. I don't do it intentionaly. Thanks again for your understanding & patience. I'm going ahead & delete mine if F.A.G. hasn't already. Have a great week.
