Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband is a journalist and I'm a stay-at-home old-house fixer-upper. We are in a constant state of restoring our old house back to it's former glory. We love to flyfish and geocache in our spare time. We love to go out birding. We live in the area of the Atlantic Flyway for migratory birds. I am also in the process of documenting our ancestry. These hobbies brings us to many cemeteries in the area. Especially the geocaching as many geocaches are placed in or near cemeteries. We have come across some lost cemeteries that I've wondered if anyone has documented them yet. I will try to do what I can when we come across them. I have had dead ends on my ancestry research and then someone will add one of my ancestors to Find A Grave and it opens up the research again. Sometimes it just takes a date on the headstone or "wife of" or "son of" to make new connections on the family tree. I'm very thankful to all the other volunteers that are putting in their own time to help others.

Note: I'd be happy to transfer any memorial I added and manage that aren't in my own ancestry.

Note about photos: Any photos I have taken of headstones may be copied and used. However do not copy personal photos of the McCuaig or Patterson family as the photos belong to others in my family and were to be used just for our family's memorials. Thanks!

Norman D McCuaig (Mickey
Do you have any information re Mickey's parents birth place? I have links to the McCuaigs/McCouaigs from Rathlin Island, Co Antrim Ireland although they were most likely Scottish highland crofters prior to the mid 1700s or before. On Rathlin they knew of Mickey's accidental death in America so wondered if there are any links.

This line is related to the famous Morlok identical quadruplets born in Lansing, MI. I had one of them at my home years ago. I am sending you this Morlock family file going back to 1500's that I have. Anyone else interested, contact me, it is about 145 pages, I am always adding to it.

RE: Christian Braun
Your welcome. I added additional information on other related family (Luginsland), etc. that at this time hasn't shown as yet. So keep checking.

Coming to Erie County
Howdy Linda,
I'll be at my sister's house in North East for a few weeks starting June 10.

I'm trying to organize a "meet and greet" lunch in Erie with other fellow Find-a-Gravers. Several have already expressed interest. If you can join us, I think it'll be a great time. Details of when and where to be worked out when I know how many can come.

If you are interested, e-mail me at the address on my profile page.

Cheers, Rich ^_^

Mary & Frank Patterson
Hi Linda.
I too am a direct descendant of Mary and Frank. They are my ggg grandparents. I stumbled upon your entry for them here on findagrave yesterday. I am soooo excited to see that there are photos of them!

Can you put me in touch with the owners that I may get a copy? I am also curious about photos of their children and grandchildren. (I am so so so into having at least one photo to go with the names in my tree. It can tell so much more)

So, yes, thrilled to see someone has photos of Frank & Mary and can't imagine that there are none of the children. Someone out there has to have something :)

I am on ancestry and have a large tree in place. If you will email, we can share more privately.

Thanks so much!

RE: Foud John Patterson's Marker!
Hi Linda,

Yes, this is so exciting! I am researching my own family and people have helped me along the way, so I am glad to help others; it looks like you have helped many people too!

My e-mail address is and if you can send me an e-mail address I will send you a link for the form to order the headstone; maybe I can help, I there is certain service info the government needs, but maybe locally they have that info, since the Legion put a military flag marker on his grave. I'd be happy to check into that for you, etc.

I think that anyone can request a grave marker for a deceased veteran, and you are a descendent, so that's good.

It sounds like you had quite a trip from one coast to the other and then up to MN! It's reality when you see grave markers of ancestors!

Have a great day!
