Bio and Links
Bio Photo I served in the US Army, Military Police Corps, stationed in Germany, so attention to detail is something that guides me. I am unable to give up or walk away from a task till it is fully accomplished. I'm also an Overseas Army Brat. I have American Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, Korean War, Vietnam, Cold War, and a nephew who has deployed 4 times now in my family line. "Assist, Protect, Defend" and "Of The Troops, For The Troops" are my motto's

I really enjoy doing this and the pleasure is all mine. I want to thank those who tell me the back story of the person they are looking for. If you think that there is another angle or view that you would like let me know. I live close to all the cemeteries I photograph and will always be returning for more requests.

I edit all my pictures to obtain a full on top or front view of the marker/stone and adjust the contrast and color when needed to get a true to life picture.

Thank you to all those who have served in our Armed Forces, because our freedoms are not free!
If I have any of your relatives posted and you would like them transferred to you, just let me know and I would be happy to do it!

Hello + FYI --- His grave marker has been repaired/standing upright now. I posted a picture of it on his wife's (#52829240) page (no more room on his page) ...

Yes, I knew about it a long time ago. It was left that way because someone requested the headstone photo on the AKA page and I discovered through the cemetery record that her real name was Judd. Because the cemetery record (contract or whatever) is in the name of Lane, I left it that way on purpose. I took the question to the Forums for advice and they said leave it.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 62444367
Thanks for adding Hattie's Wilson maiden name, and thanks for originally including Rhea's obit that enabled me to find it. After rereading the FAQ, I'd be inclined to put Baumley and Hall in Hattie's last name field since both married names are on the headstone, and I'm ambivalent about adding a hyphen that's not actually part of her name, but I'm satisfied that all surnames are included one way or another.

Just two small items:

The 1920 census gives Rhea's birthplace as Nebraska, not Illinois, and her name is misspelled as Dhea on Edward's memorial.

Since you created a memorial for Cyrus M Hall, I have memorial #s for his father (18910845), mother (18910927), and first wife Julia (70409163).
His parents are listed with him in these censuses:
1860 • Union, Davis, Iowa, USA
1870 • Marshall, Taylor, Iowa, USA
Cyrus and Julia were married in 1877 and are listed together in these censuses before her death in 1918:
1880 • Marshall, Taylor, Iowa, USA
1900 • Plainview, Pierce, Nebraska, USA
1910 • Lincoln Ward 5, Lancaster, Nebraska, USA

Thanks again.

Hi Red Dog,

You left a message concerning him that noted you knew his nephew .... I've updated his bio and thought that you and possibly his nephew would like to read it:

I was looking for the last name Hurst and this showed up in one record because whoever transcribed it had difficulty reading Hunt.

I have already shared the story of coins on a soldier's grave.

RE: Julia E. Morrell Davis # 50029249
I think that I have been misunderstood. I was providing additional, documented information about this entry for Julia E. Morrell.

The family information for J. Burge Morrell (Find A Grave Memorial# 101615411) includes his obituary. That obituary includes factual errors. His great grandfather was Joseph C. Morrell, who was an immigrant and did not fight in the War of 1812.

The other Joseph Morrell from the War of 1812 has nothing to do with this family, it was a genealogical error way back when. The other Joseph Merrill from the Civil War error also does not relate to this family.

Just trying to provide a correct history.

Julia E. Morrell Davis # 50029249
I'm doing some research on this family and I am trying to track back to Helen Hewitt Morrell Lynch and her first husband Joseph C. Morrell.

Oddly, the family seems to have a disconnect at Joseph C. Morrell who was an Anglo-Swedish immigrant. He arrived in western New York sometime in the 1830s. So the bit about the war of 1812 soldier buried in Williamsville is a fun fabrication, although Joseph C. Morrell's father may have been part of the British military or diplomatic corp stationed in Sweden during the Napoleonic wars.

Do you have additional information about this family or a contact for this family's genealogy?
