Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started on my family tree in 6th grade (1972) when I wrote a report about my ancestors who settled in Minnesota, and have been fascinated with genealogy ever since. During college, I spent my spring breaks and summer months visiting cemeteries, courthouses and genealogy libraries while my contemporaries were no doubt up to other things. Find-a-Grave has blossomed into a wonderful resource, though I hope eventually individuals can be linked with "Family Tree" profiles at Family Search.

My grandparents:
Albert Lee Volk
Della Margaret Henrietta Buelow Volk
Henry "Warren" Denison
Frances "Evelyn" Thornson Denison

My wife Ruth's parents:
Lavere Burchett
Marjorie Ruth Morris Burchett

Cemetery Photo Requests
Hello Greg

I wanted to let you know I completed Mount Olivet, Glenwood & Woodland Cemetery photo requests (at this moment). I guess I'll have to look for another to occupy my free time during the summer.

My friend will be in Big Fork, MN this summer and will attempt to get a photo of Oralee and Shirley Rahier's headstone(s).

RE: Thought of you...
I read your mother's obituary and she sounds like she was an incredibly talented and very smart woman. Also, that's a great photo video you put together on YouTube; what a great idea. Again, I'm truly sorry you lost her.

Thought of you...
Hi Greg. Hope you've been well. I thought of you while visiting my grandparents at Resurrection Cemetery in Chicago this past Sunday. I say this because I photograph many stones while I'm there; I happened upon a John W. Volk and his wife Emily. Ring any bells? Here's John's memorial #163472749. Emily is connected to him.

Abner Keen Garland TX
Mr. Volk are you still looking for a memorial photo for Abner Keen interred in the Pioneer Cemetery in Garland TX?

I did read on his site that one person did not find a marker for his grave. I am very close to that location and I would be happy to look again, unless you have information which would make my effort null. Please let me know if I can assist you.

Lydia Jane Hendrickson Cooper
I photographed the entire Hendrickson Cemetery near Liberty Center, Warren County, Iowa.

I found the gravestone for Flora Viola Hendrickson but not the one for Lydia Jane Hendrickson Cooper. There is a stone in the Hendrickson row that is partially buried, face down in the dirt.

At the time I was photographing the cemetery I wasn't looking for photo requests. I was just there to take pictures. So as a result, I didn't bother to dig that stone up to look at it.

I will go back there sometime soon and will dig it up with a garden trowel--and see what it has to say (if anything) on the face of the stone.
