Bio and Links
Bio Photo I add memorials as I have time when I see obits in my local papers. I don't usually have additional information on these people. I also add obits from my research into my family lines.

I do check each name before I add it, so ideally there would be no duplicates, however, mistakes happen. There are often alternate spellings of a name, or tombstone dates are wrong and my search does not find a previous entry. If you find a duplicate please message me and if you have the earlier entry, we will work together to get the information consolidated!

One of the reasons I do this is to help ensure those who have gone before us are remembered and, if possible, 'reunited' with family. If you find a relative or close friend among my burials, I encourage you to request a transfer. If the memorial is for a member of my family tree, I would love to exchange information with you, and we can discuss a transfer. You can leave me a public message or use my email.

I welcome corrections and additions, but would appreciate if you would leave a message giving your source, particularly if it conflicts with my information. I do NOT add obituaries unless they are out of copyright. I also try to avoid including names of the living. If you are friend or family of the deceased and wish to have this information added, please ask for a transfer. (But be aware that obituaries are considered copyrighted information and are not to be added under Find A Grave rules.) THANKS!

My family tree surnames include

Kim, Its actually John Wilbur Streich Jr. Son of John Wilbur & Lavona Streich. That was confirmed from his U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007.
Yes i am related. My Grandmother's maiden name was Streich. My Great, Great Grandfather was a brother to John W. Jr's Great, Great grandfather. If you would like to tranfer this memorial, I would be Happy to have it. Up to you. Scott Bird : 47004792

RE: Re: Gary Thomure (#18842418)
I got most of the info from the Alton Evening Telegraph (birth) and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspapers (death and family relationships). He is my 4th cousin as is a whole bunch of the Missouri Thomure family.

Sure, transfer it.

Earlier I left you information on Wilda Carrol. I wanted to check if you were able to look at the duplicate memorial for this memorial in the wrong cemetery. Can you delete your duplicate?

I made the changes to my memorial, so you can delete yours.  I thought this was the easiest way to make the correction.  One comment, it's very unusual to see the obit indicated the interment in the wrong cemetery. Thanks for bring this to my attention.

I noticed this memorial is in the wrong cemetery at Dardenne Presbyterian Church Cemetery. Wilda Carroll is buried in the Dardenne Presbyterian Rock Cemetery. I see Memorial#81102987 is already added. I saw this headstone at the Dardenne Presbyterian ROCK Cemetery and confirmed with the church records. You may want to consider deleting your duplicate memorial.
