Bio and Links
I just like cemeteries and leaving flowers. Thanks are not necessary. If you would like me to remove my token from your relative's memorial, you have only to ask. If you're in my friends list, you probably have a virtual cemetery I want to wander. I came here to find Rhonda Lou Jones, buried in Britt IA. She is one of the memorials in my virtual cemetery "missed." The first person entered in "missed" was Mary Helen Swope, whom I was dismayed to find here. Tiny cemetery with fewer than 100 people? I'm there! Cemetery in an odd place (traffic circle, parking lot, median strip)? Love it! Abandoned/neglected cemetery with headstones centuries out of date? Cool! Cemetery I would most like to participate in clean-up and restoration: Old Trinity Cemetery, in the awesomely-named Bone Gap, Edwards County, IL. I visit it on They wrote an article about it: "Nature Reclaims an Abandoned and Forgotten Cemetery," in 2010. Cemetery I most want to see in person: Saint Francis Assisi Cemetery in Brainerd, MN. It's located in Crow Wing State Park--how cool is that? I learned of its existence via Amy C. Rea's blog entry for May 9, 2012. Most disturbing cemetery pictures: with CemeteryTraveler's article "The Watery Remains of Monument Cemetery." Cemetery I want to see before it disappears completely: Orphans' Home Cemetery in Atchison, Kansas. How I want my remains disposed of: Take my ashes and those of my beloved pet, put us in a Bios Urn, and plant us on the site of my childhood home. Add violet & viola seeds. Put up a field stone (we have enough of them around), engraving optional. Let the Bios Urn tree, as it grows, engulf the stone. Carving tree trunk optional. Never dig me up again.

RE: Seby of Boggy Depot OK
Thank you so much! I find it amazing how foil can bring out the inscription on some of these really old unreadable stones. And the best part is that it does no damage to the stone!

RE: you left a token
Thank you.
I have sent an edit request to the person who created the memorial with the corrected name, however that person has not responded. That is why I added his name in the flower token section. I have requested findaGrave to transfer the cemetery listings to me so the corrections and additions can be made.
Once this is done the listing will have his correction made.

"Died with cousin Olinda, not Linda."

The quote is from newspaper articles. She is referred to as both Linda and Olinda. I imagine she went by both.

Mary Helen Swope
Please remove all 124 so called memorials from Mary Helen Swope's memorial. I feel that they are inappropriate and Find A Grave is not the place for this kind of social media.
