Bio and Links
Bio Photo We have been working on our family geneologies for many years and recognized that many leads can be gleaned from tombstones and cemetery records. When a friend informed us of Find-a-Grave we were thrilled. It is so difficult doing research from afar. The volunteers have been so helpfull to us. We love being able to volunteer our time to help others find and memorialize their family members.

Some of the family names we are researching are, Ausman, Burgess, Craig, Dodson, Farrow, Iaricci, Lincoln, Mitchell, Murray, Ramaglia, and Zito.

RE: Gangwer
Thank you for your response back. I have created the memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 181330696), but I'm not sure who his parents are for sure. You mentioned Charles Burt and Besse Arnett Chancellor Gangwer. There is a Charles Burl which I assume is the father, but I can't find Besse. Do you have a F.A.G. number for them to verify and I would be happy to attach them. Thanks

RE: Ripabottoni
Dear Joseph and Connie,

Thank you for the message. My great-grandfather and his ancestors were from Ripabottoni as well. I went to Ripabottoni once (9 years ago), and that's when I took those photos at the cemetery.

What dates of death are you looking for? One thing to keep in mind: the cemetery there is very different from what I am used to in the U.S. Here, you can generally expect to find a gravestone for each family member. That wasn't what I found in Ripabottoni. I found no graves for the older generations of my family. Two different locals explained to me that the common people were often buried in unmarked, often shared graves. Good thing Italian law required all births, marriages, and deaths to be recorded at the Stato Civile office! Otherwise there would be no record of many people.

I did see a few markers from the 1920s and 1930s. (I think I photographed them all), but nothing older than that.

I found a couple distant cousins when I went to Ripabottoni, but, unfortunately, I don't think they're interested in photographing gravestones :) But I just contacted a genealogist- through who lives in Canada but was born and raised in Ripabottoni. Let's see if he is going to Italy any time soon. It seems like he would be interested enough to search the cemetery. I will keep you posted! Thanks again.

Mitta Mitta Cemetery, Victoria
Please delete last message.

I just realised you may also have family buried in Mitta Mita, Victoria.

Here is a contact I found:

Scroll down to Mitta Mitta Cemetery and email them there.

They may be able to help you or point you into the direction of someone who can help.

Regards Sharon

RE: Rufus Henry Rose
You're very welcome. There were Christmas wreaths on each grave, so they are still loved and visited. There is a cemetery wide clean up through 3/14/16, so these will be removed.

If I can be of further help, feel free to message me.

RE: William Henry Farrow
Yes, the photo is from your ancestry page for William. Are you not able to delete photos by Tonie on the pages transferred to you?

William Henry Farrow
I have downloaded a photo of William Henry Farrow and would like to add it to his memorial page, but there are too many photos of his headstone to post it. Would you please consider deleting one of the photos so that I may add a photo of him? I also added a photo to William Henry Ausman's memorial page. Thank you, Mike.

Tombstone shows 5/31/23 as death date. Do you have proof of 5/21/23 at death date that you asked to change it to? Are you related also? I am granddaughter of Mary Elizabeth Sturm.

We'd just finished 48 hours of soaking rain and many nearby stones were under water. I am thankful this was not since I wanted to get it done before the snow flies.
God bless your day.

Pietro and Angiolina Iaricci
Hi. I just want to inform you that these people would be buried in Old St Raymond's Cemetery. You placed their memorials in the new cemetery. The old cemetery uses numbers for sections. The new cemetery uses saint names. The two cemeteries are only a couple of miles from each other, but they are separated.

Thank you thank you! It's great having so many inputs! I have updated his bio. He's an interesting piece of American history. Now I have to ask, which one are you related to? Email me! ~C
