Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi Everyone - Back when I was 8 years old, my grandpa, Paul Joseph Peter Allen, helped me make a family tree for a school project. Back then we didn't get that far...LOL. In 1999, I found that project and started working on it again. Now I've got over 20,000 people connected to my tree. I think my grandpa would be proud of what I've accomplished, thus my name, My Labor of Love!!! I'm a "Genealogy Pack Rat" and it's time that I shared my findings. I hope I was able to help someone with this information.

Take Care & God Bless -
(a mom of 3 cutie pies)

My goal is to attain what was once lost or forgotten. To investigate and then document my finding to further an ancestry or find a loved one. But most of all, making sure everyone is remembered no matter how short or long they were on this earth or what accomplishments they did or didn't do, that they are remembered and their story is told.

Please use the "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" found under the Edit tab.

First and foremost, you must be related to that individual; (ex: grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, uncle, aunt, cousin, etc...) I really don't care how many generations back, you could be a 4th cousin 5x removed, as long as the lineage is there! If you meet that criteria, please use the Edit tab on the individual that you would like transferred over to your care. Then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information". Please include your Find A Grave ID #, relationship to the individual, and that you would like this memorial transferred to you. I'll transfer anyone that isn't in my family tree. But if it happens to be someone that is, closest relationship to that person wins!

I think it's selfish for people to take possession over a photo taken, so please feel free to use any photos that I post.

This man was friends with my Great Grandparents.
I have pictures Charles his father and my relatives.
I noticed there was a message on this memorial from
Charles son.
Do you know how I can get a hold of this person?

My relatives were Norman & Helen (King) Brewster.

Hello, I made a duplicate of Jane Guest, 85192205 in error a few years ago with links, would you consider deleteing yours or adding my links? Someone wants to add parent links and there confused also.
Sorry for the hassle!

Life's a garden...dig it!
Ben Perry 85257624 Incorrect burial location
There is no edit tab for this correction. If you'll please correct this error. Ben is buried in Manchester IOOF Cemetery, in Adams County, Ohio where his parents are. If you'll read the death certificate that is posted on his memorial, you'll see that. Thanks so much.

George L Wheeler
husband of Cora Eastman and Julia Northrup.

The reason for change from 1860 to 1861 is because of his Social Security claim - giving exact date of birth.

Cora H Eastman
Memorial 47401412

1880 Census, shows 1871, living with her parents.

Married George Wheeler (the date 1861 is his birth date.)

You won't find her in 1870 census because she was not born yet.

Her parents were married in 1866.

Please remove this site. A.W. Crandall is buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Knox County, NE. His stone is there, site #73795806. A.W. lived in my hometown of Winnetoon, NE. He wrote yearly diaries from 1914 to just a few days before he died in 1939.
Thank you,

My husband and I were looking for his grave, there seems to be no headstone. How did you happen to find his grave? He is a close friend to the Helms family. We are pretty sure we found the right spot and would like to place something there.
