Bio and Links
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have a great interest in family history. I would love to help others who might need some photos of graves/cemeteries in my area.
I am also a 5th grade school teacher. I am married and we have five children and live in Evanston, Wyoming. I grew up in Michigan.
I would be happy to transfer any memorial I have created or delete it if the family wishes.

Thank you for the transfer. I am distantly related to his mother. Hopefully someday a closer relative can be found.

Thank you!

I was just browsing through my emails and I believe I failed to thank you for the photos you took in the Evanston Cemetery. You always do such a great job. I am still working on the local cemetery here. Still much work to do. Thank you for all you have done for the Evanston Cemetery. The one I am working on is only about one third the size of Evanston. There are many unmarked graves and the cemetery has been through many physical changes as well as administrative changes. This all lends to a bit of a challenge. Something is causing the erosion of many of the headstones, thus people are redoing them. I have now posted close to 600 photos and reviewed or updated approx. 1900 memorials. Only about 800 more to go. Thanks for being an inspiration to me.

No - Helen Hancock Farnsworth was only married once - to Glenn L. Farnsworth in 1962.
