Bio and Links
Bio Photo While I have always been fascinated by graveyards, my interest in genealogy started only a few years ago when I started researching my 2nd great grandfather, who died in the Civil War. During that research, I came across this site and my Grandfather Purcell was my first memorial here. Since then, I have found many of my ancestor's gravesites already listed and I have created many more. It's been a fascinating and educating journey.

Most of my father's relatives were of Irish/Scotch/English descent and from Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana, via Philadelphia, Long Island, and Baltimore. My mother's family was among the early Danish immigrants to the Stonington Peninsula in Delta County, Michigan.

Unfortunately, I am a fair distance from all those places and am unable to regularly visit the graves of my family. Find a Grave is the next best thing. I have found many helpful people here that share my interest in preserving our past.

The names I am actively researching are Petersen, Bonefeld, Hoi, Iversen, Allen, Armstrong, Atkinson, Purcell, Ferry, Pollock, Wood, Wiley, Coe and many others.

I will gladly transfer any memorial of persons to whom I am not related to anyone that is a relative. If I am related to a person and a requester is a closer relative, I will also be glad to make the transfer. Please make any transfer requests, corrections, or Family linkage requests via the Edit tab on the memorial.

Please feel free to use any of the photos I have posted. If you have a better photo of a gravestone or of a person than I have posted, please let me know and I will remove mine.

Please be aware that, while I am happy to post obituaries, I may remove the names of individuals that are still living before posting the obituary. Please do not post photo copies of obituaries to memorials. These should be transcribed and sent to the memorial owner for posting in the bio section.

I have many relatives buried in the West Danish Cemetery from both sides of my Grandparents since they were both Peterson before they got married. I was wondering if you could tell me where to find more information/obituaries for the following people:

Albert Peterson 1835-1925 #83537297
Marit Peterson 1837-1920 #83537321
Peter Peterson 1780-1948 #83537327
Christine Hansen Peterson 1874-1944 #83537304
Christ Peterson 1820-1906 #83537302
Christine Peterson 1834-1823 # 83537303
Stephen C Peterson 1845-1923 # 58671654
Helen Peterson 1851-1922 # 58671658

Any help would be greatly appreciated in my search.

RE: Robert Irwin, Jr
Go right ahead and use any photo(s) I've posted. Was unfortunate enough to "receive" the recent virus where they take over all your files, then demand ransom to get them back. My Norton was able to Recover what was on the Desktop but everything in my external hard drive was lost. Yep, stupid me, had it plugged into PC...even more stupid...that's where I had the 1000s of cemetery marker photos stored.
So, do whatever you need to do to clear up the Irwin issue. That's why we do this help others. Bulldog

Hi there. I'm working on this gentleman's place in our family tree (it's distant) and have come across a newspaper clipping about his death. It indicates that he died in July 1833. This differs greatly from the DoD on the memorial. I'm going to put in an edit request but since it's *so* different I thought I'd reach out to you separately with an explanation. Thanks a bunch. -- Christine
