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.

TRANSFERS, CORRECTIONS, FAMILY LINKS:
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.

Photos
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.

Obituaries
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.

Find A Grave Memorial# 84213379
Fredricka A. Thiry is on the headstone with Edmund
D. Thiry - Find A Grave Memorial# 84213376 so I'm confused because I thought Elmer had been married but to C. Ella Ashmore - Find A Grave Memorial# 71846009.

RE: Cub Buck Photo
Thanks very much for your fast response! I appreciate it. I'll keep you informed about the book. I'm hoping to have it published by March 1, but I'm not sure the cover illustration will be ready by then.

RE: Joseph Atkinson/Atkinsin
Hi Daniel,

I asked awhile ago if Atkinson were related to my grandmother Cora Scray (Rodaer). Here is something I found and can't figure it out yet,

Social Security Registration Joseph Lyle Atkinson JR B 3 20 1908 father Joseph Lyle Atkinson SR, mother maiden name Gertrude Wannisheimer.

I have saved the image of document and can send it to u.

What connects them is Gertrude Wineshimer I have married to Joseph Rodaer my great uncle and Cora's brother.

Cub Buck Photo
I've just finished writing a book about Johnny Blood, the great former Packer player, and it includes a chapter about the early history of the Packers. I'd like to use that picture of Howard "Cub" Buck, but I don't know what the copyright status is or how to get permission to use it.
Can you tell me where you got it, along with any info you may have about its background?
Thanks.

Wilner Burke - Lumberjack/Packer Band Leader
I have been looking for the final resting place of Wilner "Bill" Burke for quite a while, and he was right under my big, brown eyes - actually, right above my big, brown eyes, as you will see in the photos I posted. I worked with Bill in the 1970s. He was the moving cost estimator for Schneider Allied Moving & Storage which was later bought out by Nestor Skaleski and became Skaleski Moving & Storage. Wilner "Burke" was one of the nicest people I have ever met.
