Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a family man and web programmer, who has recently assumed the role of family historian from my mother.

I am active on, and I used Findagrave,com to help in my research.

The memorials in Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN (except Charles and Elsie Slocum) are random headstones I photographed while my buddy was taking requested headstones. If you want one transferred to you, just let me know.

The families I'm most interested are in my Virtual Graveyard.

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

Sorry I meant Peter Myers' daughter, not George Grant's. Did she ever marry? Thanks.

Shirley Copeland Hudson
Sarah Browne Armstrong Adamson

Hi: I think we have been in contact in the past about our common ancestor Benjamin Adamson. I recently discovered the diaries of his wife Sarah. I saw a query of yours asking about the diaries. Did you get any results? I know where the diaries are and was told that they are not digitized. Also, there is a transcription of part of the diary that can be purchased.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could help me out with any of this info.

My name is Shirley Copeland Hudson, I have a tree on Ancestry (Copeland/Adamson) and Family Search.

My question may be answered after reading your blog.

Thanks for any help.

Also, do I need permission to add photos to my tree from another persons Find a Grave or tree?

Claude & Dorothy Sherman
I was told at the cemetery office that they were both located in Lot 1 of Sequoia Plot, but there is only a marker for Claude. I think they are in the same grave, and her name was not inscribed on the stone, but I think you would have to call the cemetery to confirm that.
