Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a member of the Richland County, IL Genealogical Society, in Olney, IL. I am trying to create memorials for anyone I find information on, from our many sources that are available. If any of these memorials are of your family, within 4 generations, I am willing to transfer. See Find A Grave guidelines pertaining to relationships.

I became interested in genealogy several years ago, while attending a family reunion. Someone made the statement "If someone doesn't write this information down, then it's going to be lost". I realized how true that was, so I began my searches. I think "Family" is very important, and sometimes younger generations don't think much about the present time, then later begin to wonder. Of course, after all the info has been gathered, then family members request copies of the info, which I am happy to share.

Now that I have become acquainted with Find A Grave, I am trying to get as much info and photos added, as possible, to help others locate their loved ones.

If requesting transfers, or asking me to do corrections or additions, please do so, through the edit tab on the memorial you are requesting.

RE: Susan Geyer # 157807174
Thanks Janice for the information on Susan. No, I am not a relative either, just taking pics of all the graves in the cemetery.

Thanks for asking to transfer though, but no need to. And I did post a pic of her grave.

Thanks for all you do on findagrave and for helping others find their family!

Susan Geyer # 157807174
Hi Susan-

I just wanted to let you know I will be adding a picture of the marker for Susan Geyer, buried in Evergreen Cem in Everett, WA.

Her grave has just a temp marker on it, but is still readable, although 80 years old. Her marker is a bit muddy from all the record rainfall, and I will be cleaning her marker on my next full day visit to the cemetery.

I didn't know if she was a relative, but thought you might like to know I will be adding a picture of Susan's marker as soon as I take it off my camera tonight.

Best Regards,
Edmonds, WA

Hi, I received your suggestion about Elizabeth's FindAGrave. She was my wife's grandmother. I would love to manage her memorial if possible. I could not figure out how to respond to your suggestion.

Thanks, Janice. I have so many tabs open at once and probably looked at one without refreshing it.

Thanks for asking, Janice, but, quite honestly, I have NO idea who they are. I was just taking some of my random photos!

Apparently, you created the above memorial for Elizabeth Kupferschmitt in December 2015 and I created on for Elizabeth Kupferschmidt in August 2016. I guess Charlie Samual Stephen Victor Adams (#48965032) was checking out memorials and discovered that they are one in the same. He has submitted all necessary edits (info from my memorial to your memorial), I have added the photos I took for the memorial I made, and I also submitted death notices for both Elizabeth and her husband, John. I am deleting my memorial.
