RE: Catherine Finnigan
Hold on...All I have found is a death record in St. Louis for Catherine Finnigan, which gives no info other than 32 years old and born in Ireland. There is also a marriage record Sept 15, 1862 for Patrick J Finnigan and Catherine Cahir, but I don't have a connection yet between the death record and the marriage record.

Catherine Finnigan @ Calvary STL
What was your 3x great uncle's name? Doing a little digging for you. Patrick? Also, she does not have a marker. Very few on that part of Sec 8 and all photographed.

RE: Agnes Meagher

In the 1900 census, the Meagher family is in El Paso County, Colorado. In Ancestry, the family name was originally transcribed as Meaghen not Meagher, so that may be why you are having trouble finding it. I found it by searching on Agnes' son from her first marriage Thomas H McCabe (age 14 in that census) who was living with the family at that time.

I hope this helps!

RE: thank you
... and thank you for such a nice note! I do this volunteering for a short list of reasons; good for the soul, good exercise, "meeting" very thankful folks, and a couple of etc. etc.
Yesterday I filled 21 request plus 9 more ... took 90 photos and after editing, uploaded about 60. That took 4 hours of traipsing around Holy Cross; at home there was another 3 1/2 hours doing that editing, uploading, including text with the photos. My dear wife knows I enjoy it so doesn't nag me .... brings me tea, etc.
Keep those requests coming ... hopefully I'll spot yours & claim 'em!

James Finnigan Photo Request at Evergreen Cemetery
James is located in the Pioneers section of the cemetery, also known as Paupers Field. Of the 2500 or so burials in that area there is maybe 90 headstones remaining so it is 99% likely that there is not one for James either. The area is not well mapped so pin pointing a burial location is not going to be easy either, maybe even not possible. So, the likelyhood of fufilling this request is slim at best.

RE: photo for Morrissey
My pleasure. It is always fun to be able to help people find such information. Are you related? I can transfer if you are related. I linked him to his wife and input as much information as I could find.

RE: Nomann
Thank you so much for the nice message. We were close friends for years and unfortunately for various reasons mainly a demanding career, we drifted apart. I had been working in Europe for a while and spoke with him before I left but I was gone several months and received a call thru work from maybe his sister informing me of his death. I was so shocked to hear the news at the time and I never really new how to contact his family. I eventually found his memorial and googled the farm. It looked like somewhere I had been before since he talked about it so often. Thanks again for your message, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

Best regards,

Thanks so much for the photo of Ricks headstone I am very glad and thankful to see it was nicely done. I miss him so very much and at least I know that this was taken care of for him. Thank you for your time and efforts.

RE: Josephine Williams
Kathy, you're welcome, but it was really no problem for me. I love to search find a grave for my relatives & ancestors, because it is such a primary source for finding dates & sometimes obits.

Take care,

RE: Josephine Williams
Kathy, both the memorials for Josephine & Raphael should have their gravestone photos posted? Do you see them? If not, maybe I'm missing a link.

Josephine Williams
Hi again Kathy,

Did you know there are 2 memorials for Josephine M. Williams? I added the gravestone photo to one & also added Raphael Williams. I didn't know at the time that there were 2 memorials. They are both added by you on the same date.
Do you want me to post her gravestone photo to the other memorial al well?

RE: Harry Finnegan
You, in turn, have made my day. Your gratitude is so heartwarming and I am so grateful that my very small gift to you has made such a difference. I have been blessed by the photos others have taken of my ancestors and so I am really glad I can do it for people like you as well.
May God bless you richly with His loving presence.

RE: hi
I found this about unlisted cemeteries on their help link. ~Nancy

What if the cemetery isn't listed for the names I want to add? How do I add a cemetery to the list?
We have a fairly comprehensive database of cemeteries in the United States. Please perform a search from our cemetery search page to make sure the cemetery is not already in our database. Include adjacent counties and other names which the cemetery may be known by as names do change over time.
If you still can't find the cemetery, add the person as you would any other using the Family and Friends form. Fill out Step 1: Biographical Information. Choose 'Cemetery burial' and proceed to Step 2. Step 2, Find the Cemetery. Fill in the first 10 characters of the cemetery name and location information and then search for cemetery. Pick the correct cemetery if listed or choose the link 'click here to add a new cemetery' to add a new cemetery. Fill in the cemetery name and location information and click 'add new cemetery'. The cemetery and memorial are now added. The name of the cemetery should be completely spelled out using no abbreviations nor punctuation, even if the "official" cemetery name is made of such abbreviations or punctuation. St. John's Cemetery would be Saint Johns Cemetery. Mt. Zion would be Mount Zion.
You should never create a cemetery by the name "unknown" or any variant. Burials where the interment is unknown should be added using the 'Other' burial option, then 'recent death, location of body unknown'. Location of body unknown should be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition should be determined and updated within 30 days.

RE: hi
Hi Kathy,

I've never done this, but I think I've seen this happen on Find a Grave. People will make a list of names from graves in a cemetery - maybe all the names & their dates. Then they make a memorial page for each person. If a relative searches Find a Grave for their ancestor, they can make a formal request through Find a Grave & you can then take the photo. Usually the photographer (you) will turn over the management of that memorial to the relative, since you are probably not related.

But it seems to me that if the cemetery is small enough, you could go ahead & take all the photos & put them on the memorials without anyone having to request a photo. The only thing about that, besides being more work, if that you don't get credit for fulfilling a request, if you're into that. Actually, I'm not really sure if you don't get credit, but it would seem not. I don't know how that part works.

I recently saw a relative in a cemetery in FL that had 2 of my ancestors. I wrote the guy directly who put up the memorials, asked him for a photo & offered to make a formal request. He didn't care about a formal request, so just went out there, took the photos & put them on the memorials. I think he had made a lot of memorials for people in that cemetery without knowing who they were.

I don't know if this answers your question fully, but hopefully it helps.

Raphael A. Williams
I hope it was okay that I added a photo of Raphael A. Williams to his memorial, as he was buried next to Josephine Williams.

RE: Irene Cecile Morrissey Young
Not a relative. Obituary came from a Prescott newspaper which I can no longer find online. Usually I add the newspaper name & date. Sorry that there is no reference info for the obit.
Glad to help!

Find A Grave Memorial# 95001681-- the link you gave the memorial manager for Donald's parents is incorrect. I sent them an edit, but would you also let them know? The couple he was linked to had a son named Donald but this is not him. Their son died in 2001 in Kansas City. Thank you for your help with this.

RE: #62582770 Joe Edward Nixon
Dear Ms Quade,
I don't think I can be of much help to you with regard to your relative, Joseph Edgar Williams. My gut feeling is that "my" Joe Edward Nixon and "your" Joseph Edgar Nixon are not the same person.
My father's first cousin was Ila Ray Diehl who married Joe Edward Nixon on 25 Feb. 1933 in Liberty County Texas near Cleveland. I don't know anything about the parents of "my" Joe Edward but "My" Joe Edward and Ila Ray had two daughters, Annie Louise Nixon and Nelda Jean Nixon Chandler, and one son, Alvin Ray Nixon. Annie Louise married a Kornegay and they had a son who I could put you in contact with if you thought it would be productive. Let me know if you want the contact information and good luck with your genealogy. Oh, and have a happy holiday!!

Linking memorials
To link a memorial that you have created, go to the memorial that you plan to link and right-click and copy the memorial number. Then go to the memorial that you want to link with, and click on [edit} by "Family Links". That will bring up a screen showing parents and spouse. Paste the number of the memorial that you right-clicked in the proper space. You can only link parents and spouses--can't link siblings together. They have to go through the parents' names. After pasting the memorial number in proper space, click "save changes" at the bottom and it's done! You can just write down the number instead of right-clicking and then you can type it in, but it's easier for me to click than write down numbers.
