Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family's history for years. Many of my memorials are of my relatives and people I have known. My family has many old photos which I have posted so that others can enjoy them. I try to personalize the memorials as much as possible by adding bios, details discovered through ancestry research, and the personal remembrances of people who knew them.

My father's mother (Olive Kullgren, 1897-1986) left many fascinating photos of her youth in Colorado and later in Southern California, where she became private secretary to Edward L. Doheny Sr. in 1925, after the departure of his previous secretary Miriam Lerner. I spent many hours pouring over her photos, trying to identify family and other people in them, and created memorials for the people I was able to identify, such as for her lifelong friend, Eunice Winifred Morgan, and two friends from Denver who served in World War I (Charles Matthew Klaiber and Wesley Louis Murray). Her photos touched and inspired me.

I'm currently working on cemeteries in Shawano County, Wisconsin, where my mother's father (Einer Louis Tulberg) grew up. I'm researching the individuals buried there to provide family links, obituaries, full birth/death dates and full names. One challenge is tracing the maiden names and parents of married women.

My family's names are Boetius and Blad (Denmark), Kullgren (Sweden) and Morrison (Scotland) on my father's side. On my mother's side, my ancestors are Tullberg (Sweden); Houm, Engebretsen, Kjerneby, and Vestby (Norway); and Stolz and Klein (Germans from Russia). Other surnames close to me are those of my second cousins - Hollands, Scott, and Zook on my father's side, and my mother's North Dakota cousins (Schacher, Wagner, Enockson).

RE: Harry & Mary Wallar
No, I didn't know Mr. and Mrs. Wallar. I usually leave a flower when I post a photograph--
Take care,

This is not the same Benton that belongs to my family. He was from Oregon and never lived in New York.

RE: Borden family
That would be fine, but the only Gilberts there that I know for sure I'm related to are Richard, Rose Jackson Gilbert, and Frances Gilbert Kirkbride. If they are related to the other Gilberts in the Columbia Cemetery, I have not come across the information in my tree as of yet. Thank you very much for the Bordens- I hope to get back there again to check on them again.

RE: Borden family
Hi Gale- Thanks for the message. If you would like to transfer EJ Borden, that would be fine, but it is not a must if you prefer not to. Either way is fine!

Hello Gale,

Thank you for asking but I am ok with you keeping the memorial. Darol was my Great-Uncle and he was one of 12 siblings.
