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 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.

Florence Eva Hall Koch
I have been searching high and low for a death date for Florence. Her husband was John Koch (1881-1958) and his second wife was Viola. There are 3 children on that plot also in Plainfield cemetery. Recently I learned from an elderly relative that Florence had been cut accidently by a hatchet in her leg and her husband didn't get help for her soon enough so she died of infection. Her death must have been between 1920 - birth of her last child - and 1929 when John remarried. If you have any clues for me I'd sure be happy. Thank you, Marianne Koch

RE: Newton cem.
You are so thorough. At the gravesavers website, One of the members (and Oshkosh Scrabble Club member) thought I should write a book about my repairs and the repairees lives. Albeit boring, seeing nearly all my repairs are from forgotten people, seems tough to find any info! I hope to stand wrong. You know from your genealogical angle, most of my repairs are from mid to late 1800.s. ugh, long winded

Hi Janet,

I'm glad you are doing Newton cemetery, I went back this summer and photographed all of the markers, but grrr, they are stuck in my broken SD card. I didn't have the oomph to go back and snap again! Keep up the good work, Marty

RE: Thank you!
Thank you for you research. I guess I cannot expect removal of the monument until confirmation is received. That is reasonable. Thank you again. Kathleen
