"12+ years proudly at Find-A-Grave"
I began my interest in genealogy about
30 plus years ago. My dear grandmother
gave me very basic written information
about my family history.
It has been an amazing journey with
many wonderful discoveries. The internet
has been a wonderful tool. I have been
very pleased to find my ancestors memorials
on Find-A-Grave. So going forward I hope to return the favor for others by adding photos,
information and editing family connections.
I hope to have an opportunity to help you!
*NOTE* Some of these folks are my family.
The others are photos taken and added for
the use of others in their genealogical
studies. *You many copy my photos but it would be nice if you let me know...*
Please contact me if you have additions, corrections,obits or connections.
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me? First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree. Transfer requests that do not include relationship to deceased or are out of guidelines are deleted. I would be happy to transfer a memorial to you if the memorial follows these guidelines. Please don't try to hoard graves. I have worked quite a few years to have the numbers I do and most were added and photographed by me. You shouldn't be asking to transfer if you have no connection... It's always nice when you acknowledge the transfer so I know you received it! IMPORTANT *If you are looking for a "perfect" photo, it doesn't always happen when you have limited time to photograph large sections of graves. I try my best but I am unable to stop and care for every grave that needs assistance. Please request a Find-a-Grave photo through the "Request A Photo" button tab if you do not feel my photo fills your needs. Thank you! DR

I hope you don't mind that I added a few photographs to the memorials of these people. Mary Ippel nee Bruinooge was my husband's grand-aunt. Thanks!

RE: Roland Ambrose Sparhawk, # 147989665
Thank you for the prompt response.I sure appreciate it. I really get irritated with multiple dates for the same event that are years apart! Your listing of Effie as a widow on the second one, but a living Roland on the first would seem to agree with the gravestone. And definitely his 1925 death would have to be wrong. Thanks! Jo P.S.: I'll send edits for links and additional name info that I have.

Roland Ambrose Sparhawk, # 147989665
He's my great-uncle, and I'm trying to find a verifiable death date source. Did the memorial info come from the gravestone, an obit, cemetery records, or ?? I'd appreciate the help, as some places have October of 1925 and some have October of 1927, with the only references I can find as unsourced family trees. It would be nice if I could get it all to match! Thanks, Jo W Guthrie, (member #48178412)

Wildwood Cemetery, Sheboygan, Sheboygan Co. WI
#115705423 Sgt. Lange

I believe the stone reads SGT. F.A. Rausch,
Co. H 26th WI Inf. The stone is hard to read but
it looks like F.A. and the last three letters che.
Applications for headstones list. Fred'k A. Rausche, Co. H 26th WI Inf, Wildwood Cemetery, Sheboygan. Died 10 May 1897. Pension index lists his wife as Maria. Wildwood Cemetery List has Ferdinand Rausche, Sec 2 - N/2 34, interned 12 May 1897 and Marie interned 28 Mar 1904. There is no Lange listed that fits listed.

Flag holders
Memorial #41850943 and #41850793 have the same photo of the flag holder. I have been researching Alvin Hager. According to Headstone Application he died 20 Dec 1899. He isn't listed in the Wisconsin Roster, however he is listed as Alois Hager. I believe Alvin Hager and Aloyse Hager #73864837 are the same person.

RE: Cornelia Bayens
Hi there - thanks for doing the update. I submitted the birth location via the regular edit tab but she was born in the city of Kloetinge, in Goes (Zeeland Province) Netherlands.

Until I found your memorial I didn't know that Peter had remarried - updating my tree now :).

May I use the monument photo that you contributed to the Find A Grave memorial for George Mattoon, to post on the Vermont Civil War site? ( George was credited to Brattleboro, Vt., and served from 1861-1864 in the 1st Vermont Calvary.
You will receive credit for his.
Thank you for your consideration.
