My interest in "paying it forward" started after I found a record of one of my ancestors on Find a Grave. This led me on an entirely new branch of genealogical discovery. I soon became a volunteer photo taker and then branched out to photographing entire cemeteries. |
I think it is important to document history and it is unfortunate that many stones are so worn away that they can't be read, or there is other damage to the stone that makes the documentation of that person's history incomplete.
Find a Grave is an astounding phenomenon! Feel free to use photos I have taken. Please ask if you would like a memorial transferred to you for management or tell me if there is additional info I can add to the memorial. My goal is to improve accuracy and to give someone else that needed leg up in their genealogical research.

|Cindy ( Pennel )Paulson||RE: Retzlaff|
I took an interest in both those cemetery because my daughter-in-laws gr-gr grandparents, gr-grandparents and grandparents were buried between both cemeteries. They had no memorials. I noticed that there were many buried there and no memorials. This winter I have been placing photo and making memorials 800 so far in St. Paul. I plan on doing Pine Eden too. I have been double checking between both cemeteries to make sure of duplicates. If you want to transfer that's fine,but you do not have too. I just want to be sure everyone has a memorial and there are no duplicates. My feelings are the same as it says in your bio. Have a good day Cindy.

I see in the past that I let you know that Pine Eden and St. Paul are side by side. The only way to tell the difference is looking towards the road and the fence by each cemetery. Pine Eden is silver and St. Paul is black with yellow brick posts.I have photographed all of St. Paul and came across some names that you have placed in Pine Eden and they are in St. Paul. I will delete mine if you transfer yours to the correct cemetery thanks. The names are.

|Mahaley||RE: Lemly family|
I'm sorry but I don't know anything further back than Charles Lemly. Any of my research regarding Lemly's is due to researching Verbeck's in Ohio & Southern Illinois. Charles' wife is Mary E Verbeck. I did do a quick search for Mary V Lemly Mallard and I think that the likelihood is high that she & Charles are related, but I have no information to substantiate it.

I was just notified by Donna Lange telling me my memorial was a duplicate of yours. I checked St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery and mine was the only one. Then I decided to check Pine Eden and you have him there. He is in St. Paul's not Pine Eden. St. Paul's and Pine Eden are side-by-side. The only way to tell them apart is by looking towards the road. Pine Eden has a silver chain link fence and St. Paul's has black fence with blond colored brick posts. I have come across this many times between these two cemeteries. I went last summer and photographed all of St. Paul's and I kept track of where the difference fences where. If you place him in St. Paul's I will delete mine.

I also took a fairly good look for Robert Kessler, since the Kesslers and Turleys (a family I'm working on) were related. No luck yet.
