Bio and Links
Bio Photo I give permission to use any picture I have taken for Find a Grave for use for other programs, websites or genealogical purposes. After all..that's why we take the pictures, so people can use them for their families.

I have been working on finding my dead relatives and irritating the living ones for over 30 years. Now that I have retired I even have time to spend on new discoveries. I also enjoy going out to local cemeteries to fill photo requests. If I create a page which you would like to manage and it is not my family, just let me know and I will usually be happy to transfer it to you.

Elizabeth Bjorklon
Hello Mary,

Thank you for fulfilling my request for a photo of Elizabeth's marker. I greatly appreciate it. I'm somewhat surprised that her husband, John Edward wasn't (isn't?) next to her.
After doing a quick obituary search, I find that Leo Dwyer is one of Elizabeth's brothers. I wonder if there was any animosity in the family.........
It looks like they may have "milled off" someone else's name on the marker where Leo's name is? The plot thickens!

Thanks again,

Ken -

Earl Kerr photo request
Mary :)
Thank you for fulfilling my photo request so quickly! I, too, when I have the time am searching for dead relatives. I found that my great grandfather had a first wife and 3 boys that my family really knew nothing about except for an uncle who has been deceased for many years, so I can't ask him. The first wife committed suicide in 1893 using arsenic. If you want to read more about that, her findagrave is under Charlotte Taylor Kerr in Guernsey County Ohio. I found her grave at the church where Luther (my gr. grandfather was a pastor) I still have not found the youngest boy but I am only an amateur sleuth!
Again, thank you!
