Bio and Links
Have been a history buff forever. Walking thru cemeteries is a passion as my Step-daughters will attest to. It spurs the imagination. Six years(1999) ago I started researching my family as well my spouse's. Until recently I thought cemeteries were sacred but if they are on private land the owner can do as he likes which is what happened to Elder Cemetery, it was plowed up. We have left the big city to live on my husband's family farm in Ks. We have zebus and scottish highland cows, peacocks, dogs and orchards, super sunsets!

Dear Evelyn, Thank you for changing her date of death. The tombstone photo I saw was on her husband's Godfrey B. Nuzum #7102090. I also found her listed on the 1880 census in Kansas. Godfrey's mother Hannah was the older sister of Hepzibah Beaumont Pascoe, who was my 3-great grandmother & died in a cholera epidemic in Platte Co, MO in 1851. Let me know if you would like any more information, and many thanks for your great volunteer work. Jenifer Jones

mysteriously losing a memorial
I tried to see if you were familiar with the guy that input the info on Jesse S. Childers. I found your post to him about someone tampering with your memorials. I HATE it when findagrave so easily MERGES 2 memorials for the same person. It almost always gives it to the newer memorial maker. Not fair at all. It's happened to me several times as well. There should ONLY be merges when the original maker is deceased or no longer active. Otherwise, put in the information via the edit key for the old memorial and delete that new memorial. PERIOD.

my numbers
One reason I find graves via books, obits, etc., is because many times there are no headstones, so traipsing through cemeteries wouldn't help. Also, many of these books are pretty old and at the time say that the stone was nearly unreadable.
I've done my time photographing stones in tick and snake infested cemeteries. And I hate chiggers and mosquitoes. The internet is the way to go! Old newspapers have tons of information. They didn't just print the bad stuff that was happening, but if someone was having a birthday party or getting married or even taking a trip to visit family in other states, those are good clues.
I do love a well-manicured cemetery though. When I was younger and having a bad day I would go to one, sit by the graves of babies and young children and finally decide that my life, noisy and hectic as it was, was better than what the parents of these children had. It brought things into prospective for me.

RE: Re:memorials
do I know you? Your name is familiar for some reason. Do I have someone in your family among my memorials? What's up with all the questions? Why me?

RE: Memorials
you don't have to visit them to add them to findagrave. I purchase books from various cemeteries, funeral homes, etc., then use the death certificate files to find those who have no memorials. Of course, there are a lot that are family/friends/neighbors, etc.

RE: Elder Cemetary
Yes, that looks like a much better guess than Bridget. Could even say Elisabeth. It's on my wish list to someday return to Elder Cemetery with proper tools for clearing the overgrowth and documenting what's left properly. Meanwhile I keep plodding along, concentrating most of my efforts on the find-a-grave website.
