Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy for over 20 years and know the value in finding family information at cemeteries.

I'm retired -- hobbies are genealogy, travel and photography. Most of my travel includes visits to lighthouses -- I've seen over 1100 of them around the world. My email address relates to my interest in lighthouses... 'wickie' is the term given to lighthouse keepers of the past whose duties included trimming the wicks in the oil lamps atop the tower. This small flame was magnified either via reflectors or lenses creating a powerful beam of light.

If I have posted a photo to Find-a-Grave that you would like to use in your family tree or other genealogical records, feel free to copy it.

Two memorials for same person
There are two memorials for the same person.

Millie Bassett and Millie Bassett Goodwin are the same person.

Millie Bassett's obit in 1878 says she was adopted by the Goodwin's so that is where that name comes from.

Hi Shirley -

Would you please deleted the photo that you posted that shows the sign with the phone number? This is outdated. There are new signs up and I can post one if you will remove the one you have.

Thank you - Cindy Sartori

a belated thank you for the photo. I've been working way too many hours this year - no time for my hobby.

Canfield TS photo
Dear Shirley,
Thank you so much for providing a photo to Find A Grave for James Canfield. It was posted in Sept. and my accident had prevented me until now from getting back to you to express my appreciation.

Re: Johnson, Jackie and Merle
Thank you so much for trying to get a picture of Jackie's and Merle's headstones. I will get in touch with my cousins and see what they know. If they don't know anything, we will see about getting stones set for them and I will post again at a later date. Again, thank you. Leah

RE: Minnie Baker - Evergreen
I'm afraid I don't have anything further on Minnie. I did attach her death record to the grave record, which shows that is where she was buried and her name.

Thanks anyway,
