Bio and Links
Bio Photo Since 1990, I have been working on the genealogy of my husband's family. In 1997 a computer was foisted on me and the real fun started! I began researching my own family in 2000 as a 70th b-day present for my brother. In sleuthing for family gravesites in the Northeast, we have physically unearthed family headstones. During the process of gathering family data, we have had a refresher course in US History as well as some post-grad work. The threads of our country's fabric have been spun from the family histories in our cemeteries.

In 2003-04,I had the pleasure of working with Michael Robert Patterson to identify family genealogy in many burials he had listed on his superb Arlington National Cemetery website. Michael linked the families on the website and supplied copious biographical information. The "family" continually amazed us both.

At the time, I neglected to enter names in findagrave's Arlington list and have tried to catch up, but alas too late to add many of our family ,as others gleaned the information from the above website and added it to findagrave.

I will not link entries created as "burial unknown" to our family memorials, for that is not the mission of this website as stated below.

"Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information . . ..
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition.
"Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days."

All of my entries in Find a Grave have been family members,until recently when I put in a few names from some obscure places that may be your family.

I have added some of his children, all are buried in the same lot or Vault, plus a couple of others. Let me know if these are your relatives.

Also, there are some good photographers in that cemetery. I suggest we ask for some tombstone pictures.

Terrill family
I am searching for information on Betty Jean Terrill born in Liberty Missouri in I believe 1927. She also lived in California in 1946. She married John Boyles. They had a child named Pamela LaVerne. If anyone knows of these folks I'd love to hear from you.

Hi there Shirley...
Like you, I was surprised as well. She did just put all of the Blauvelts as cremated when they were actually interred and in cemeteries. I will try to locate the burials of our Blauvelt cousins and link them with the family members with bios and such.

Thanks again for the note!

RE: Blauvelt, Ellen N.
Hi Shirley,
I believe the three crypts were purchased by Charles for himself and sons. The mausoleum had not been built at the time of Ellen's demise.
