Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since I was about 12 years old. I have been tromping through cemeteries with my mom & aunt for as long as I can remember. I am a mother of five children, step mom to three. I have six boys, and two girls. Besides my busy life of motherhood, I love genealogy and helping others.

My brick wall is death date and place of Daisy Belle Patterson Brown, she is my 2nd great grandmother.

If I manage a memorial of someone in your family just message me, I have no problem transferring management.


***When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see the sun will rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. Life at times will catch you unaware, but please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand. He said my place was ready, in heaven way up above, and that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly loved. As I turned to walk away, the tears fell from my eyes, for all my life I'd always thought I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for, so much left yet to do, it seemed so very cruel to me, that I was leaving you. Thoughts of all our yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, are remembered for all the love we shared, especially the fun we had. If I could relive just yesterday, even for a short while, I'd say my goodbyes and kiss you-and hopefully see you smile. As the days pass into weeks, don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'll be right there in your heart!!***

RE: Delia Patterson #24482841
Yes, it is always worth requesting a tombstone photo - sometimes it can be disappointing to find there is none, but at least you know where they are. Block 1 is a lovely area even though there are very few stones and they keep it well maintained. Thanks for your note.

Delia Patterson #24482841
I am sorry, but Delia has no headstone. As per my note below regarding prior requests, this area has hundreds of unmarked graves and they are 99% single graves so no known relatives near her. I added a photo of the overall area.

Hi Jennifer,

I posted Daisy Fager's obit to her memorial. If you need additional information just let me know.

It's kind of sad that she died on Christmas day.

Best wishes in your search.

Patterson infants - photo requests
Regarding your photo requests for Elizabeth (24236313) and Edgar (24236307)Patterson in Oak Ridge Cemetery, I'm sorry to report they have no markers. They are both buried in the same grave in Block 1, alpha sections, which generally were for burials at the county's expense. Since they were infants, no grave markers were not unusual for that time frame. The Infant Patterson (24029043)
in Block 3 also had no grave marker. I added an overall photo of the area in Block 1 and Block 3 where they are buried but unfortunately, that's the best that can be done.

Justus W. Gary
Thank you for searching a grave location for Justus W. Gary 143120833. No need for a photo of the abandon location of this. Even though it's a poor farm cemetery it's a shame that it has not been preserved. Justus is my 3rd great grandfather.

RE: Frank Griffith
I appreciate your continued efforts with this, its very kind of you. Can you suggest a library I could find some obituaries for the family? So far I have found nothing online for the entire family.

I have posted a note on Frank's memorial stating there is no gravestone found and thanking you for all your hard work with this.

If there is anything I can do for you in my neck of the woods in southeastern Wisconsin, please let me know. We also get a further bit up north too.
