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.

If you decide to not play by the Find A Grave rules, I will report the incident to Find A Grave, and let them resolve the situation.

Norma Stuart Porter #27711670
I have to apologize for not sending a thank you for your request in connecting Norma to her parents. I have made this connection. Are you related to the Stuart or Porter families?

98803163 Eugene Leach. Thanks for the info - good, you contacted the person who has Eugene's memorial. Just one problem with the Porter family - none of them know I exist and I'm surprised nobody has called me out this on this stuff yet.

Thanks but no that is not her. She is 2nd child of Eliza Joslin. I don't have my file handy but she is a couple years younger than Sarah.we know she died about May 1917 as a cousin remembers she died soon after the cousins dad was born. In 1900 she is listed as living in Montana in an obit and in Idaho in another obit. One gives her last name as Liel.i have looked and no Medora died in ID or MT in or around 1917. It had never occurred to me that she came home to WI til today. She was married 3 times. Skinner, Fields and Roberts but the kids always called her Gramma Fields.

RE: Eliza Joslin
Thanks Janet. . I will think about that. I do have more info.
If you happen to see a grave for Levi Davenport Shippee or Medora ( with any last name ) died in 1917 I would appreciate you posting it.

Hi Janet
Yes you can use any info you would like that I post on the Joslin family.
Are you related? Eliza is one of my grandmas. I see you have worked a lot of cemeteries where my family lies. I am related to a lot of people in the Plainfield cemetery.And the Joslin are my people. Thank you for what you do. Loretta
