Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Washington, DC, I have a PhD in Romance Languages from Princeton University (whose mascot is the tiger). I wrote my dissertation on Andre Breton. France is my second home and I often travel there. French cemeteries are very different from American ones. I have traveled to every continent (even Antarctica) except Australia. I enjoy visiting cemeteries and paying homage to the great souls who have made life beautiful.

I began by writing "famous bios" for Find A Grave while recuperating from a broken foot. Then I added memorials of my parents and parents-in-law. This opened the gates to an amazing set of new friends from around the world who have visited my family's sites and given me the opportunity of honoring their dear ones. The kindness, caring, generosity and concern of Find A Grave members have been extraordinary. I am especially grateful to Edda Meinikat for so generously sponsoring my mother's memorial as well as my mother-in-law's site. Three such lovely women would certainly have been friends had they known each other on Earth. I am also thankful for the friendship of Janet, the "Cape Codder," for sponsoring the memorials of my father John Stanford Stultz and a special member of my husband's family, Sister Mary Roddenbery. My favorite Find A Grave "cousin", Alice Morton, kindly sponsored my dear father-in-law, Thaddeus Roddenbery. Then Reilly, my friend in Ireland, sponsored the site of my Irish great-grandfather. The circle of kindness spread even wider when Seagull sponsored my Aunt Indie Gutman on the eve of her 109th birthday. The depth and breadth of my gratitude have grown ever deeper and wider.

RE: Needs flowers
My dear friend,
I know it's been a while since I've been active on Find A Grave, but today I do so with a heavy heart. My big loving brother, Michael Ockenden, died earlier today. I am still in a state of shock, but have made an attempt at a memorial for him.
#178679185. If you still leave tokens I would appreciate one from you. Thank you.
Your friend
Kris, U.K.

It's nice to meet another Copp cousin! According to my Brumback/Copp genealogy database, Fred Beidler was my 5th Copp cousin, so I guess you are also---Welcome!

Frederick Beidler
I've added his parents names under 'relationships' on his memorial. I see in his obit this the family surname is spelled 'Beidler', but I also have it spelled as 'Biedler' in my Brumback genealogy---confusing! Linda H

RE: Eugene Franklin Baker
All I can tell you for certain is that Eugene was married to a Minnie Wisman, I have linked them and they also share a stone.
