Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is a passion of mine from when I was very young. My grandmother told me wonderful stories about our families and I have been doing family history for over 30 years. I have traveled all over the world photographing family graves and writing books on my different families. I need another 25 years to finish everything I have started!

PLEASE do not add birth or death certificates to my memorials. Thank You...

RE: Alva O'Connor
Thanks for your message! I've researching by family history since about 2005. Alva's site enables me to now finally locate all nine of my grandfather's brothers and sisters gravesites. My grandfather was Jesse James O'Connar. Thanks again!

RE: Dennis Hogan
Thank you for your lovely message and for finding my Great grandmother's little brother's resting place. I had thought for years that he'd remained in Canada and that I might never find him. He's with his family in only one census. I also assumed he'd died early before his sister since he's not mentioned in her obit, however I found old newspaper articles that discuss comings and goings of local residents. One mentioned his sister Ella spending time with him in Escanaba at the lumber camp. There is another brother, Michael in Canada that I'm still looking for. A little sister Jennie appears in the census as well but had eluded me. Luckily Dennis was born in the US and his birth record shows the exact date and parents' names. I'm not sure if Mary Keizur was his wife; I haven't found any marriage document and with such an age span I wouldn't assume it even though it wasn't uncommon with the genders reversed. Have a lovely day, Karen and thanks for your hard work!

Peachy Quinn Harrison
Hi Karen,

Just wanted to let you know that I am related to Peachy through the Harrison line. I was verifying his place of burial and checked with the cemetery. He is actually buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Kansas City. It's located at 6901 Troost Avenue. He is in Block 13N, Grave 1208. He has no marker. His death certificate confirms that Forest Hill took care of his arrangements.
Peachy's memorial# is #80546181.

Thanks so much,

RE: Nellie Chambers
You are welcome. Now if I could find the memorials or more information of two other siblings another sister and brother that live into adulthood. There are two older sisters that died quite young and aren't mentioned in the other siblings obituaries. Chances are most family members don't know about those two that died quite young.

RE: Lydia Logan
I'm sorry that I spelled her maiden name wrong the first time, it's "Tustin" Our family records show her first name a "Martha", hence, being call "Mattie". Not sure where 'Lydia' came from but then many used names other than their given name. Thank you for making the change. Nancy
