Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired and a full time RV'r. We spend the summers traveling our country.
My husband and I like to visit cemeteries, especially old ones.
I have found many relatives on this site and am willing to help with photos in any of the areas we travel.
We spend winters in the 78006 & 78015 zip-code area. San Antonio & Boerne TX.

Feel free to copy any of my photos for your family trees. Be sure to follow the policy of this site in re-using them here.

I am willing to transfer FAG memorials to those who provide their relationship to the person and also provide their FAG member number. For those FAG memorials I wish to keep, I will update any information provided to me.

Thanks and blessings to all.

RE: LeLand Eugene Vail # 76074614
Glad I could help. It is a small world.

RE: LeLand Eugene Vail # 76074614
This will probably make you think a bit and count but here it is:
Cynthia Wymore Playle was the daughter of James Martin Wymore (1825-1870). James was the son of John Joshua Wymore (1783-1855) who married Nancy Meeks. Incidentally, they are buried in Barnes City, IA.

My uncles, James & Jacob Meyer, wed Opal & Pansy Wymore--brothers wed sisters. Opal & Pansy's parents were Henry Samuel Wymore (1875-1941) & Anna Miller. Henry was the son of Abraham M. Wymore (1848-1927) & Olive McMains. Finally, Abraham was the son of Samuel Wymore (1828-1863)& Amelia McMains. This Samuel who was the son of John Joshua & Nancy Meeks was a brother to Cynthia's father James Martin.

That is where my Wymore interest was. I hope you understand all this. There are several Wymore's buried in the Mahaska Co., IA area and if memory serves me right there is even a Wymore cemetery around there.

I hope this helps you some.

RE: LeLand Eugene Vail # 76074614

I really am not sure what information you are referring to for the communication must of been some time ago. Most of my research material comes from information found either on or FamilySearch although I do search obits and such also. Possibly, you are asking about this person's death etc. I found this about him in the Minnesota Death Index: State File & Certificate #025530, Cert. Yr. 1963 Record #1538542: Leland Eugene Vail, born 16 Nov 1892, died 26 June 1963 in Hennepin Co. MN. Mother's Maiden Name: Spencer. There is also his World War I draft registration, censuses etc. to go by.

I am not directly related to this person. My interest in him was through his wife. Two of my mother's brothers married Wymore girls and Leland's wife, Alice Lucile Playle, was related into the Wymore's.

If I can be of any further help to you, please let me know. Happy researching.

Hi Barb; I got the info from LDS or Family Search. You don't have to be a member to make corrects and add to your tree. Here is the link. There is a phone number any assistance. You can add a pic and ur documents also. I have a little problem not related to yours. I have a old email that I had used for findagrave and I have go into my profile to try to delete it, there is no phone number. My direct email is Norilee

I travel to Iowa and Lincoln, NE in the spring to visit family. Your William Taylor is just off I-80. If this isn't full filled by next year, I'll stop by.

Forest Hill Cemetery, Houghton, MI
I appreciate you contacting about the Forest Hill Cemetery. I thought you like this sight to the cemetery listings and locations:
Click on the Records, for 4,250 she has collected. This not a complete list.

This is also where I contacted Scott & "Tami" Hiltunen on her continued research project. The sexton reports that there are over 20,000 burials. Of which Find A Grave currently list 7,385 memorials, less than half.

Hopefully Tami and others will continue collecting info. Keep my "Brayton" surname in mind in future visits. I live in Charlotte, NC.. Wish I could visit. In college, I did a road trip with friends of the great lakes, made as close as Marquette, MI. Thanks again.

RE: Mary Brayton# 124152986
Sorry, I do not.. they lady was working on the index, was working on other things. I don't know if they have an office or that would be open. Wish I did know. I can't locate her e-mail at this time... I don't want to limit your time. His wife's parents "James & Mary Maher" I'm sure are buried there as well.. but also no locations. There are 3 Mahers listed on Find A Grave with stones, but no locations. No clues to help ya. But you might get lucky walking by it.. Thanks again...
