Bio and Links
Bio Photo I maintain memorials only for persons to whom I am related and a very few close friends.


8th Great-grandparents: William Layton and Violet Blackman

3rd Great-grandparents: James Thomas McCord and wife Martha Burch

2nd Great-grandparents: George W Kerfoot and wife Dorcas M Trout

2nd Great-grandparents: William Elliott and wife Mary Davis

Will also work on maternal lines of: Trout, Dilts, Throckmorton, Stillwell and many others.

And paternal lines of: Wynn, Holzinger, Costello, Smith.

I have considerable information on many lines and am eager to share what I know since, after all, that is the purpose of compiling a genealogy. I will not, however, share my GED file.

RE: Erling Christensen
Thank you for deleting the duplicate...happy to send the original memorial to you.

I remember when Erling and Alma had the grocery store in Maquon...long time ago....sixty some years.

The memorial you entered for Erling is a duplicate, but if you would like a transfer I would be happy to place the memorial in your care. cj Please use the EDIT tab. Thanks.

I was going to ask K to remove her pre need memorial, as outlined in Find A Grave guidelines and to add the photo to my after death mamorial. If she refuses after 3 weeks, I'll contact Find A Grave to merge the photo with the after death one I put on. when it's resolved, since she's a close friend of your family, I would be glad to transfer her to you.

Hi, John,
My husband and I have taken over the records for St. Patrick's. I see you have a message from Stephen Cantrell who had done great work with many cemeteries.

Unfortunately, the church is now closed and many of the "old" records from the west section are gone or incomplete. The east section is being brought up to date.

Reviewing what records I have, I see a William, George, Richard and Thomas Wynn.
If I find more information, I will contact you.
If you have other questions, my email is

The photo is all that I have. A good many stones in that cemetery were beyond recognition. I did my best on some and sadly had to leave others, without creating a memorial.
I have had some brief contact with the current sexton, but I don't get any indication that any of the old records have survived.
Some of these stones could be "brought out" with a rubbing, but I don't forsee going back to that cemetery in the near future.

photo requests at St. Marys
Will try to finish up adding the rest of the photo's later tonight or in the morning. I will also send you a list of those who did not have markers w/ their sections & row #.
I did not get to all of your requests but will get back out there asap to finish the list.

John, Thanks for the heads up. I requested that the two sites be merged for Captain Khan. I searched for the first one, but did not see it. Connie Graham

RE: John Otis Elliott
My pleasure! There are a bunch of Elliott's in Foster, all related I'm guessing.
Have a safe weekend!
