Bio Photo Updated: December 2014

Chief Petty Officer, US Navy, retired.

Enjoying the fruits of my labors - children and grand children - to the best of my abilities.

Recently purchased an RV and traveling around North America.

If you have a problem with something I posted, please email me or click on suggest a correction instead of posting it on my contributor page. I will address the issue as quick as I possibly can.

The purpose in life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

One can tell the morals of a culture by the way they treat their dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin

To Err Is Human, To Correct Divine. If you come across any errors or have additions to the memorials I maintain, please let me know. I strive to provide accurate information and will be happy to make any changes necessary.

So many questions, yet, so few left to ask.


The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. ~ Herbert Spencer

Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories. ~ Unknown

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. ~ Anonymous

"There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." ~ Author Unknown

"Lest they be forgotten."

"May they live forever."

"When an old person dies, a library burns..." African proverb

Life is not a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely, in a well-preserved body. Rather to slide in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming.."WOW, that was a Great Ride!"

Eloise Parker 128572455
I got your email requesting obit for Eloise Parker. You didn't give me an email address to reply with instructions, so I've typed out the obit and added it to her memorial. I hope this is satisfactory?

Edward Manley


I didn't see any headstone for Edward, there was a marker next to Hugh with the letter F and the number 4. I took a photo of it and put it in Hugh's memorial for you to see. Also Nellie was buried next to Bridget not sure if that is Ellen or not or if Nellie was another child of Hugh and Bridget. The marker could be for Edward or Ellen or another family member. Nellie didn't have a memorial for her. Let me know if you want more help on this, the cemetery isn't that far from me.

RE: Arthur M. Shumate and Sheila Lynn Shumate
I can't make a connection with the limited information. If you will send my Sheila's and Arthur's Find A Grave ID numbers I will do more research on them and get back to you. Are you related to the Shumates? My paternal grandmother was Carrie Estelle Shumate who married Clement "Clem" Weaver Payne.

George Hansen & Caroline Bryant photo requests
Hi - there are no headstones for either George or Caroline. I rechecked the plot locations at the cemetery office and they are correct. I have left photos with yellow paper etc. to mark the plot location.

RE: Mary Ellen Durkin Steward Photo
I hesitated to return the photo request, but the cemetery sexton indicated he had no record of burial for her or Wm. G. Mitchell. So, I went back to the other gravestones that are present to double check that I hadn't somehow missed the other ones. It seems odd to me also that "Jo" and her Dad are the only ones buried there, with gravestones anyway. 605-692-2445
Please let me know if you find out something new or different, I am at the cemetery very often and would be happy to get a photo.
