|Bio and Links|
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
DEBEE, D'ERCOLE, EDGAR, FREDERICKS/FRERICHS, HAHNENKAMP, HIXON, JANCO, KOLK, McCLOSKEY, PETRINI, POYNTER, STRIEBEL, WEISS

|Randy McKean||RE: Re: Catherine Weiss (#51450376)|
You can see her record and sources at https://familysearch.org/tree/person/KNZC-Z8D/details
There are marriage record sources on this page. I am not related to Catherine.

Sorry, got carried away with the middle name. I did not find documentation for Emil, so disregard that suggestion. If I find documentation, I'll resubmit my suggestion.
Please post the obit I am submitting for his bio field. It documents his parents.
|DL James||Matilda Frances Knollhoff McQueen|
I've updated her middle name. Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the transfer offer, but no relation. I've found JAMES is a very common name.

|DL James||RE: Re: Billie O'Neal|
No, I'm not related. I took a lot of photos in the Wright City Cemetery and was adding them as needed to the memorials. I noticed there wasn't much information for Billie O'Neal so I looked him up in ancestry.com. I started with the 1940 Census and that took me to the Social Security Applications and Claims Index. That's were I found his middle name and birth place.
No need to transfer the memorial to me.

|Ross Boehning||RE: Re: Lockie Walker|
I am not related to Lockie, except in the heart. Her husband, Al, was my father's (Charles W. Boehning) best friend and best man at his marriage to my mother. Al & Lockie, I can never seperate the names as they were like one entity in my life, were over to see our family fairly often. We thought of them more as Uncle & Aunt. Of course, as time went on, we kind of lost the intimate visits, and would hear from each other only through greeting cards as such. Time seems to do that as it passes. Much to our regret. Anyway, that's the story, and unless you are blood related to them, I would like to manage the memorials, and add a little as I remember more details. Thank you.

Not related, just adding info. Thank you for your work on Find a Grave.
