Bio and Links
Bio Photo In February 2008, my son invited me to join his Geni Family Tree which sparked my interest in the family histories for myself and that of my wife. Since then, I have researched birth, death, and census records (Winning, Hudelson, Wilbur, Howell, Jolly, Dye, Oates, Hibbert, Poage, Clark and Krigbaum families) which have given me a wealth of information. I have walked cemeteries in and around California and Nevada as well as visited local museums which gave me some interesting family history. In May 2009, my wife and I took a road trip through several midwest states to walk some cemeteries as well as visit some family. While I am new to being a genealogy sleuth, it has become quite a hobby and I find it's like putting pieces of a puzzle together and oh so fun!

RE: Plucar Family
You are very welcome. I only get up to that area of Wisconsin a couple times a year so I was happy to be able to fulfill the requests. Most of that cemetery is not photographed so I hope to make some more progress on it my next trip up! Hopefully there won't be snow on my next trip!

Take care!

RE: Annie E Jolly Declue
It was my pleasure! Sorry about the shadow. Of all the pictures I took that day, I felt Annie's was the prettiest grave marker. And, the flowers looked lovely. My husband and I watched the eclipse in the cemetery that day so we could also provide some service while completing the requests. It was a great day all around! Cheers, Amanda

RE: Parsons
U R welcome. Seems no one around here likes going to St.Mary's cemetery, as there were 22 unclaimed requests, yours being one of them. I used to go there regularly, but took a break. But as the requests seem to be piling up, I guess I need to get back to work! It's a bit far from me, at 11 mi. one way. But I guess I feel duty bound, as no one else seems to want take on that cemetery. = ] Randee

I'm not sure which John Simpson you are referring, since there are three.

Yes, you have my permission to use the photo. Please use this line:

20XX by LKat on Find A Grave. Used with permission.

Thank you very much for being considerate in asking if you could use the photo.

Please replace the XX with the correct year. Thanks again. I am always glad to share photos I have posted.

Hi John,
Hope things are well in sunny California. Would you please transfer my Mother's memorial to me?

Also, I noticed on Aunt Nettie Lee's memorial that there needed to be four more names added to the siblings list: Julian, Martha, Mary and Barney.

Say Hi to Dude for me.
