Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired and loving it. Enjoy old cemeteries and photographing the markers. Photography of the markers is my primary focus.

I prefer going out and photographing markers instead of dealing with fraudulent memorials with unverified information and subsequent bogus family links. Please help by refraining from creating bogus memorials and requesting links when you have little or no PRIMARY evidence of a burial.

Requests to link families will be denied if I have no verification of accuracy.

Requests to add links with Burial unknowns in ANY form will be denied, per Find a Grave Policy. Disguising a Burial Unknown to look 'legitimate' usually is very evident and will be reported to management. Adding 'guesses' as to dates, cemeteries and location of deaths is fraud. If the burial is not a KNOWN BURIAL identified with an actual death date, it IS a Burial Unknown.

Adding family links without adequate research and documentation tends to create MULTIPLE errors that require hours of work to remove, if they get corrected at all. It is the responsibility of the requestor to do the research, not the memorial manager who did the photos.

A denial is not personal rejection of you. Accept it and move on.

Thank you to all the volunteers who donate their hours, photos, research and help to others seeking their missing family and friends.

Hiram Seffens
In all my extensive research I have never seen a middle name for Hiram Seffens. Where did you find it?

Thanks for the heads up on the original Tessie LaRose record. It was misspelled with the space (which is an ongoing aggravation to our family along with not capitalizing the R), which is why it hadn't come up in my initial searches. I found the rest of a set of "missing" family members due to the same issue.

Her last name is actually "Wollum".

RE: Jenny family marker photos
You are welcome. It is my pleasure. I did send corrections and several other edits, but nothing has been accepted yet.
Thank you for the kind words.

RE: Graff and De Graff
Thanks for the response. Are you in anyway connected to the Graff/De Graff family that you manage their memorials in Pepin Co. Wisconsin?
If not would you be willing to turn over management to me. They are family members. I would love to be able to add family Bio's and include the data I sent you and much more.
Thank you for your time and assistance. Eva Myrick

Mary Ann Heck Hartwick
I moved her to St Anna Cemetery. I am sure she was the wife of Joseph, but I am not sure about her date of birth, since different sources have different dates.

Mary Ann Heck Hartwick

Yes, I think it is the same person. In census records her date of birth is given 1830/1834. I will try to find her birth certificate.

At the photo at Memorial# 85563667 it says: The Buckmiller monuments are to the left and behind this Hartwick monument in the photo. There is no inscription for "Mother" Mary.

Buckmiller was the maiden name of Joseph Hartwick's first wife. Mary was his second wife. I will ak them to remove the photo.
