|Bio and Links|
I've been an avid genealogist for years, researching my own family and helping others research theirs.|
I have now (December 2015) completed a personal project to research every burial in Pioneer Cemetery (aka Masonic or Odd Fellows) in Boise which has just over 1800 burials. I now have about 3,500 memorials on FindAGrave and a related tree on Ancestry.com with 63,000 people.
With this much data out there, I'm getting a lot of contacts asking for more information, sometimes several in a day. I always respond to everyone (unless they're particularly cranky or unintelligible), usually with much help and many answers. But, my response time is not generally measured in hours, but days or weeks! This is just my hobby and I've got many other things in my life that keep me hopping. So, please be patient. I'll get to you. If a month passes, I may have missed your query. Feel free to poke me again!

You recently sent me an update on this entry. I've since added the funeral notice to him and his wife and updated death dates.

Are you certain Caddie is dau of Jacob Kimball Hardy and Elizabeth Ann Bird? Her birth date of Oct 1859 makes it impossible for her to have a sister Louisa Ellen Hardy, b. 8 Feb 1860. Something is wrong.
Sorry, in my last message I meant Gottlieb b. 1835, not 33. Can't read my own writing, lol

I started delving into the Bamesberger family here in Marshall, IL (Clark Co.) when I found a lone child's grave (#128114966) beside the road with others who had died on their way through on a wagon train. Looking up his family, I came across Gottlieb, b. 1833 (who I assume would be an uncle and brother to the child's father, Jacob. I have an article from 1909 about Gottlieb and his wife celebrating their 50th anniversary in Marshall, but I wanted to ask if you minded me putting it up on his memorial before I did so. It lists all their children and his birth place.

|Barbara Young||Find-A-Grave Memorial - Nancy J. Counts Farrier - 1858-1888 - Memorial # 171308905|
I am researching George Farrier and his wife Nancy J. Counts Farrier. I have found her Find-A-Grave Memorial, Nancy J. Counts Farrier - 1858-1888 - Memorial # 171308905.
May I have your permission to use your information in my research. It would greatly enhance the work I am doing.
Thank you for your consideration.

Hello Kathleen, I have an edit from you asking me to link him to Minnie Creek (# 133561648) as his mother. This appears confusing and I would like to be able to put some note in the bio that clarifies the discrepancy in surnames. If this is a prior marriage do you have any information on that?
|Nathan Haines||A Magdalena Bergold Heuschkel|
I sent a message a whole 15 minutes ago and did not get any response back. I don't know what is taking so long? Hah hah. Just kidding.
It was actually a month and a week ago. May 15th to be exact. At 4 minutes to 10 in the morning.
It is about a page you made for Magdalena Heuschkel
Magdalena's Find A Grave #= 73344579
You have her as unknown burial.
My edit I sent was to let you know she is buried in Lincoln Memorial Cemetery here in Portland, OR. You made pages for two of her sisters that you put are buried in Lincoln Memorial Cemetery. They are all buried together and all three have gravestones.
Since you cannot send an "Auto edit" on changing pages from unknown burials to what cemetery they are in, that is something you have to go in there and do yourself.
Anyway, when you get time. I am sure you aren't sitting there by your computer with nothing else to do but wish some old man in Oregon would send you more work to do? :-]
|Donald Cox||Charles Lester Wright Young|
Kathleen- Thanks for informing me of the Les Wright memorial in the Placerville Cemetery. I will deleated the memorial that I added- Don
|Dianne & Ron Armstrong||Josephine Ellis|
Thanks for telling me. There is a Helena researcher documenting the African Americans of Helena so I'll pass on to her too.
|Matt Sohlstrom||McQuin Burial record|
I was looking at this and noted you added this person to the record of my family's cemetery. I question how this person could or would have been buried there in 1852 as the cemetery was not established until 1854. My sister was the President of the MFPCA at it's inception and family was very involved in the lawsuit to regain proper ownership of it over the 10 yrs. until it was settleed. I have stood in person on the land a few yrs. back. My next step is to dig out my oopy of the family tree to find you. There are only 2 graves. a child who died in '54 and Alexander.
