Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm very interested in family history and I love cemeteries. Most of my ancestors have been in this country for more than 200 years. The lines I'm actively researching moved from New York to Michigan and from somewhere (Virginia, we think) to northern Kentucky/southern Indiana/southern Ohio. I ended up in Minnesota, spending more than 30 years in St. Paul before moving up to Duluth on the beautiful north shore of Lake Superior. I recently retired & have moved to southern Michigan where I look forward to doing more in-person family history research.

RE: Where'd you find that picture?
Hello! Thank you for the reply! I've never been, but I've passed by there a few times so I know what you're talking about. I never would've guessed I'd find old family stuff at an antiques shop, but I guess you never know! She was from that area, so it's at least the right location. Thanks for sharing! I'll check that out and see if I can find any more neat family nuggets there!

Where'd you find that picture?
Hello! I noticed your picture you uploaded of Caroline (Daglow) Kulow - thank you for uploading that! That's an amazing picture of her, and the best I have so far. May I ask what antique shop you found that at? I'd like to see if they have any more of my family items there!

Thank you for your time!

RE: Hurtt Photo
Was my pleasure Aunt Hoot. I had alsways wanted to spend some time researching in Summerville as that's where my dad's people are from. Glad I could help your family as well. I also love that 'Zudie' was actually named Missouri.

And, yes, you can share my image(s) with attribution. (Ysa Adams)

Congrats to your sister for her breakthrough and keep on researching.


"Thank you so very much for taking the photo of the Hurtt headstone at the Pennville Cemetery! It is much appreciated. I wonder if I might have permission to use your photo in my genealogy work, for example, by adding it to my family tree for these folks on I would be happy to give you credit for the photo when I use it. Thanks again for taking the photo. Albert & Zudie (her real name was Missouri!) are the newly discovered paternal grandparents of my adopted sister."

RE: Watson Photos
Hi Martha,
Please feel free to use my photo's for your tree. I am glad to be able to help you out with your family. I'm sorry, I was unable to find Isabel Watson today, but I will try and look again. She is in the older part of the cemetery and some are unreadable. I do have the cemetery book to Oak Ridge in Buchanan. If you need anything more let me know.

RE: Eliz M Chance Headstone Photo
Not a problem since I like cold weather as long as the wind isn't blowing like mad.
Also I didn't see John anywhere close, or even on the city page that lists those in the cemeteries.
Happy New Year to you as well.

Hickey family in Saint Annes Roman Catholic Cemetery
I don't know if the Hickey's are family of yours but figured, since you made memorials for some of them with links to other family members, they might be. I was at Saint Annes Roman Catholic Cemetery in Palmyra, NY last week and photographed the headstones of Maurice, Ethel, Thomas, and Richard. There was no memorial for the latter so I created it. After checking the 1930 census to be sure he was related, I added Maurice and Ethel as his parents.

Williams/Lake View
Thanks for the info regarding Lovina Heckman Williams at Lake View Cemetery.
Please note a previous memorial for her with the surname of Bishop at #107076129.I have deleted my version and have suggested to the manager for that memorial that her surname is Williams, since that is the name on her grave marker and Henry Williams appears to be her last husband.
If you have any questions please let me know.
