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. Please state how you are related. Transfer requests outside of Find A Grave guidelines will be considered on an individual basis.

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.

There are some contributors who create memorials for individuals and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers like me to find these individuals and create memorials for them in the correct cemetery. Then after the individual is found, the contributor sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. It's pretty unscrupulous, but it's done. 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 the people 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.

If there are duplicate records in a cemetery, a request will be sent to Find A Grave to merge the memorials. All the information, photos, etc. will be preserved. Find A Grave will decide which memorial to keep, which usually is the memorial that was created first in the correct cemetery. This usually takes about 1-2 weeks.

Emil Torval Pearson
Emil Pearson is my great-grandfather's nephew. When finding the findagrave memorials for Emil and his siblings, I noticed the photograph of Emil that you added in addition to his headstone.
Just wondering if you being in possession of this photograph means you could be relation to Emil/his family?

RE: Yahr Family
Hi Janet!
Thanks for accepting the edits. The mausoleum is gorgeous, and I love the photos you posted. How wonderful that you were given the opportunity to get inside. I'm not sure if I'll ever make it to Princeton, but you have given me a reason to go.

I just wanted to bring it to your attention that the child, Dolores you have linked to Mary Elizabeth was born 17 years after Mary died.

Ruth C Harmon

Find A Grave contributor Janet Marie has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Ruth Gustin.

Their suggestion:
Hello Tom,

I added an obit today for Ruth Gustin that indicates that her maiden name was Harmon - not Brown. I sent a request through the edit key to change the maiden name.

Janet Marie

Can you please e-mail copy of OBIT. TOO small to read as posted

RE: Alexander Beulen - #140130930
Hi Janet, I do believe the marker is incorrect. I usually check all docs I can find to verify that the change I am requesting is valid, especially when requesting a date change on a marker. For Alexander the 1850 Census lists him as age 5 and the 1860, 1870 and 1900 Censuses all reflect his year of birth as 1845. The 1880 Census I found with this name (and a wife), neither of their ages match all the others records, so I have to go searching for another 1880 Census on him. Not any easy task since the spellings of the surname are quite varied. His death notice from the newspaper did not give his age or year of birth. I hope this is enough information. Thank you for all you do and your consideration of my request. Sondra Cartwright

RE: Eli Roland Hogan
Hi Janet,

I use Find-A-Grave a lot, but apparently do not pay close attention when someone makes a change. I am so sorry for this extremely late reply, and write now to thank you for your addition.

Thanks for checking on the cemetery. I sincerely appreciate your efforts.

RE: Howes Corners Cemetery
Thank you for the information. Most mornings I check the newly entered memorials that show with no last name. Because they are so new I can usually get the corrections done right away. That's why I noticed the "aa" memorials.

RE: Lucy Stanton/Stouton - Darien Cemetery
Hi there, I don't get to Darien that often, but still have some of the claimed requests photos to post. My husband and I did look for Ruth and found some Starins, but not Ruth. I don't know when I will be able to get back there, but I am sure there are Contributors that live much closer that will be more helpful.
