RE: Help for newbie cant get the gist of the beauty until you see it!
My little nephew came here and had never seen hills before! He was 4 years old and said "why do you get all of the tree mountains?" He loved them! He was so thrilled with going up & down "rolly-coaster hill" roads! And loved the rivers & Conway Rail yard with all of the trains! Things I drive past and don't think anything of!
It is beautiful! I hope you do make a trip here! Everyone should see it!!

RE: Help for newbie
WOW! I can't imagine only having 3 cemeteries! There are so many here that I never even heard of until I joined Find-a-Grave! I was shocked to see how many there are within 15 minutes of me!Probably more than a hundred depending on which direction I go!Some are small churh cemeteries, some are city cemeteries and some are huge!!!
Some are beautiful! We are all hills here, and although I hate climbing them to find a grave, the scenery is beautiful! There are no such things as "FLAT" ground cemeteries here! Have you ever been in PA?

I glad you found a lot marker! Our cemeteries are not marked well at all! Some of the marker are unreadable! You would think that the cemeteries (at least the bigger ones) would up date the markers to make it easier for us, but they don't!
I have about tweleve different cemeteries that I can take requests from. I try to stick to my favorites though!
How many cemeteries are you close to?

So, how is it going? Are you getting the hang of it yet?

RE: Help for newbie
Okay. If they do not post the grave location, and most don't, you can go to the office, give them the info that you have and they will tell you what section, lot number and grave number.
Find the section first, and then look in the ground for lot numbers. They are little markers that usually look like stones, but have numbers printed on them. By reading the number, you will know if you are close to where you need to be! They are harder to find in some cemeteries than others. Say you call and they tell so John Doe is buried in Section- Garden of Gospels, Lot 50 grave 1.The section should be posted clearly to see. (Some cemeteries go by numbers instead of names.) Once you find that, you are half way there! Start looking for the ground markers, but look at the name plates as you go! You might get lucky and stumble across it! You should see some fairly quickly. They will usually say the Lot number, or say C-50. Once you see that 50, you know that's where you want to be! If it says 60, look for the next marker. If the next marker says 70, turn around and walk the opposite direction until you see those numbers get down to 50. Once you find that, then you look at the name plates and you should fid it.
If you can't find it, go back to the office and ask if there is someone who can help you locate it, or if it is possible that it is not marked. MOST cemeteries will be willing to do that.
If there is no office on sight, call the phone number listed in your phone book and ask for grave location.
That's the basics. I have one cemetery that I am going grave by grave, but it takes FOREVER!
Let me know how it works out for you.
If you are familiar with one cemetery, it gets easier.
Once you know the sections, you will get to know about where to look.

Are you related to the Zombeck's in Grandview? I am only wondering because I added a few more from Section-I that I took photos of last week. Check them out and let me know if you want any transfers.
Are you getting used to Find-a-Grave yet?

RE: Vaughn
That's okay. It took me a long time to figure everything out!! If there is anything I can help you out with, let me know. I'll do the transfers, and then you will see your name at the bottom of them. That means you will have access to change any info, or connect any new family members you find! It is just a button that says link family members under the bio. All you have to do is put the member number in it.

That didn't really tell me if you want them transferred or not?

Added by Cathi Moore on May 30, 2012 3:26 PM

Do you want the rest of the Vaughn's that I found transfered to you?

Arthur Vaughn
There were several other of Arthur's family in Grandview cemetery. Although you did not ask for their pictures, I did take them and add them as memorials. Are they related to you? If so, I would be willing to transfer them to you. There are two sons, Arthur Jackson, and Bruce F. and also Arthur Jacksons wife, Edith. There is also Arthur's wife, Eunice. Her headstone is buried under a brush that someone planted above the headstone that has now over grown. I had to try to hold back as much of the bush as I could to get a shot of it.
