Bio and Links
Bio Photo Click on the tomb for more info. I've been seriously interested in family genealogy for a long time. If I've added memorials to non-family members it's because I was there and had a camera while looking for my family (I'm a grave walker). Some markers catch my eye and I must photograph them. I try hard to capture the Veterans when I find them...because they deserve it. I'm not interested in building an empire of memorials for the sheer sake of numbers so I'm more lax over turning them over to family than Find A Grave's rules. I also don't create memorials for living people for reasons I believe are obvious. If a relative is closer to you than me I have no problem turning them over. If they are at all relation to you and not me then just ask, tell me your relation and they are yours. Just try to be polite, it'll take you farther. Especially if someone fulfills your photo request. I try not to add recent deaths too quickly, doesn't allow friends to post their friends memorials (I don't look at the Obits each morning first). I'd like to thank the volunteers who have brought me photos from far away, you are wonderful. You may use these photos for any non-profit reasons (, findagrave spouses, etc)
I've been happily married for 41 years to a wonderful woman who keeps me in check. (I need to be kept in check.) I'm a NRA Life Member (gun enthusiast), from bull's-eye pistol to BMG, a certified PADI SCUBA Divemaster, Extra Class HAM radio operator and 4th dan Judo black belt. I wish I could fly, parachute, play an instrument and dance but I can't...or haven't yet. I also make a mean breakfast!

RE: Cemeteries in Moline
I have an obit for Sarah E (Scott) Looker. Born 9 Aug 1835 died 21 May 1912. Her obit says she was buried at Hartzell cemetery in Moline. Yet I can't find any cemetery by that name.

Thanks so much for your help.

Cemeteries in Moline
Good morning,

This may be a longshot. I have an ancestor who says they are buried in 1912 in Hartzell Cemetery in Moline. I'm not seeing anything on findagrave. Have you ever heard of this cemetery. Maybe it has been renamed? Thanks for any help you can give me.
