Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Oregon and started my genealogy hobby in 1976. That lasted for less than a year, and then I started again in the winter of 1998.

"The Final Act Of Love Is To Remember."

Family surnames:
Direct Paternal: Fenter, Hardage (Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri), 1800's. Collateral Paternal: Allen, Bray, Cain, Doudy/Dawdy, Hardage, Hughes, Tanner.
Direct Maternal: Campbell, Steele (Kansas, Missouri, North & South Carolina, Pennsylvania), 1800's. Collateral Maternal: Anderson, Bailey, Chamberlin, Cook/Koch, Cordon, Drake, Duff, Hart, Hillhouse, Holmes, Montgomery, Myers, Stanley, Williams.

I try to use the best possible photo on memorials because I know how important it is to be able to read all the text on the marker.

Find A Grave allows 5 free spaces for photos on each memorial page, so I try not to upload more than 2-3 cemetery photos. If you need more room for photos, please contact me and ask me to remove a photo so you have more room.

My Photos: If anyone would like to use any of my grave marker photos, please contact me for permission.

Transfering Memorials: For those that are not of my family, please contact me, and include your member name & number, the name on the memorial and memorial number.

Please Note: The last residence on the Social Security Death Index is not always where the person died, but where the last benefit check was sent.

RE: Fernetta E. & Edwin L Trimble, Jr., 148247518, 148247575
Ah thank you for taking on the project, I'm always grateful to people for documenting burial sites. Sorry about the mistake for the father and correcting it. As Fernetta married into the family line I was tracing I hadn't tried tracking down her parents.

RE: Fernetta E. & Edwin L Trimble, Jr., 148247518, 148247575
Hi Jan thank you for letting me know. Yes I am related, are you related as well - maybe we are cousins? I am a 5th cousin coming down through Charles Trimble's wife, Edna Wilson. For Fernetta I was going off of her Social Security application . In light of different documents with different variations on the names I'm now at a loss too.

That was a mistake I should have had his father as Edwin Trimble Sr, (1904-1996), thank you for catching that!

RE: Donald Richard Anderson, 120115195
Hi Jan,
I have updated his location (or name location) and added a note to his bio area.
You are welcome to add the photos if you like.
When people send in edits we don't always have a way to find out if they are fact or not.
We tend to assume they are.
I'm thinking that someone sent me the edit for him being at the other cemetery assuming he was buried in the same location as his first wife.
But I don't know.

Hi Jan, I tried searching for more info on Donald but came up empty handed. I deleted the memorial I created for him. I guess add the photos to the other memorial. John

RE: Anita Florence Sargent Marlowe, 34587529
Jan, if I remember correctly, I contacted Angel Hunter several times for a transfer but never received any kind of a response. So I just decided to make another memorial for my great aunt because I thought I had much to add.
Is there something else I could have done?

RE: Malcolm B Horne, 154505199
First off, no, I'm not related. While researching Malcolm I found both spellings of his middle name, you can ignore that edit if you like.

Are you in North Dakota? Kensal was the land the farm was on and all of the children were born at home. The county line between Foster and Stutsman is very close to the farm. I'd still like you to accept that edit.

Thanks, Valice

Jan I looked on google for the cemetery records for William Cahill There was not any birth date just his age and death date. Possible that the person who entered the dates made a calculation error. I have sent them a message, hopefully they will correct it.

RE: Dorothy M Ferguson, 154426522
Hi Jan,
Thank you for your questions. I found an obit for William on Genealogy Bank. I could send it to you but you won't be able to use it on her memorial page. The memorial for William doesn't say her name but it mentions her mother's name Minnie Nelson and 3 daughters. I am kind of a relative but not direct. I'm writing a book on this side of my family. We would be cousin's some times removed. I haven't put her on my tree so I don't know the calculation. William was born 1865. Sorry, I didn't look at the birth on the memorial before sending you this information. Let me know if you want to see the obit and where I should send it.
