Please take a moment to visit my son Travis. My love for him is a deep pain that will never go away, until I see him again in Heaven. Many thanks to all who visit his memorial. It warms my heart.

A special THANK YOU to all who have left tokens and kind words for members of my beloved family. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated. Blessings to all.
Hi, I'm a retired educator. Genealogy is in my blood. My mom, her mom and so on have recorded family information for years. I have those records and more for many surnames. Check out my virtual cemeteries. We may be related.
Find A Grave has helped me locate burials of ancestors who were lost. I'm very appreciative of the people who have posted memorials for those cherished souls.

I will transfer memorials WITHIN the Find-A-Grave Guidelines. Use the "EDIT" tab to ask for EACH transfer. PLEASE STATE YOUR DIRECT RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED. Many are family or family friends. NO TRANSFER IF SPONSORED!

Eugene McWayne
I have transferred Eugene McWayne memorial to you.

His wife Lydia Allen Huddleston is my 2nd Cousin 3 times removed:) Do you know when and where she died? I try to document (on Ancestry) many Huddleston's related to me.

She is named in following file. Rebecca Lenning Huddleston is her mother and Shelby A. Huddleston is her father.

Pension - Huddleston, Rebecca - Lydia A McWayne - Fold 3 Page 87

There are 107 pages in Rebecca Lenning Huddleston, Widow’s pension application No. WC 25352 on Rebecca Lenning Huddleston, Widow’s pension application No. WC 25352; service of Shelby A. Huddleston (Pvt, Co. C, Regiment 41, Illinois Infantry) ,” digital images, Fold3 ( : accessed 1 Jan 2013), “Case Files of Approved Pension Applications of Widows and Other Veterans of the Army and Navy Who Served Mainly in the Civil War and the War With Spain, compiled 1861 - 1934,” Pension Files; Department of Veterans Affairs, Record group 15; National Archives, Washington DC.

Artemus McWayne

I am writing in reference to the following message:--

Dixie, thank you so much for adding the photo of her gravestone. We (the family) have been going on Artemus McWayne's Bible records, which are not the easiest to decipher. Neither are Iroquois County marital records for that matter. You are so handy, do you mind if I keep you as a friend on findagrave? Thanks again for all you do in assisting others with their family members.

I am affiliated with the Batavia Public Library and would like to learn more about Artemus McWayne's Bible for research related to his daughters, Ellen and Grace.

Thank you for your help!

Best regards,

RE: duplicate Henry Moores
I was not accusing YOU...I was informing you that I can see that your flower note says that the two Henrys are cousins, but that the other manager has connected BOTH of them to the same parents and the same wife. And since you posted the flower note a long time ago, s/he has had plenty of time to correct the mistake, but has not done so.

Grue family
I noticed you left flowers on a couple of my memorials for the Grue family in Blue Earth county, MN.

If you are related, I thought you might be interested in the bio I posted for Ole Grue, husband of Elizabeth Nelsen.

Here is a link to Ole's memorial.

The write up is from the book, "History of Blue Earth County and biographies of its leading citizens," by Thomas Hughes, pub ~1908, pages 414 and 415.

Bless you

Thanks so much for sponsoring Aunt Helen. I quit sponsoring our family and friends when finances changed with the death of my husband, as well as dropping cable.... :) Thanks again, it was so thoughtful of you. Darla
