Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping others out. As well as working on my family history. If I can help in my area let me know. I will try to help get your photo and or obituary, if possible.

However, after going out of my way to get pictures and the such, I would appreciate it if Marcia would stop trolling the findagrave site and nit picking at my and "other" contributors work, effort and help. We are all adults, or so should be.

I am human and do make mistakes, just like the rest of us. (Whether some want to admit it or not is still out for debate. LOL)

If you find a problem, please be kind when asking for corrections to be made. Don't ASSUME that all the information on the memorial was made by me. You know the saying "Don't assume- it'll make an ass out of you!" Most would agree that a polite contact is the best kind of contact.

In the event you find memorials that need to be linked. Please provide proof that it is husband and wife buried together. I've gotten wrong information. What a headache that was. So please provide proof. Thanks!!

Currently I am inputting information from cemetery books. I am not trying to have a bunch of memorials under my number WHO CARES???
What I care for is to list the forgotten, that didn't have a headstone or the headstone is missing for whatever reason. For those that are searching for loved ones. Not knowing where in the "county" they are resting. Since inputting the cemetery book info. I have had several people contact me because I had solved mysteries where their relatives are buried at. That has been rewarding. It trumps the "negative" ones.
So fellow findagravers, the cemetery entries are a great source for information, if you can't get out to cemeteries, entering from the cemetery books would be greatly appreciated.

Found this wonderful writing by: Thelma Greene Reagan.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY LEAF
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

God Bless America!!!

Spangler Bible

Thank you very much. I bought it. Noah was 1C4R. This is the closest relation document I have found on-line. Looks like it has family history in it, so I thank you. BTW, Noah's father was my uncle through the Spanglers and his mother was my aunt through the Hoffmans.

Like you, I just take photographs.
Subject is NOT a member of my family, but I find it appalling that someone would put a family bible on E-Bay for sale..

William Markee / Markey
I am the great-great granddaughter of William Markee Jr, and write to assure you that his grave is in the front (westerly) row of the (aptly named) Markee Cemetery near the old village of Birmingham, in Schuyler County, Illinois. He is not buried in either of the two Augusta cemeteries.

I grew up visiting all these cemeteries, and continue to visit and decorate graves there, although I now live in another state.

The Markee Cemetery land was originally a part of my Great-Great Grandfather's farm, which was located just east of there. My entire family (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins) are all buried in a row at the back of the cemetery.

I can relate many, many family stories as were told me me growing up. My grandfather, Charles Hale (sone of Mary Markee) was a horse trader, and his and my grandmother's farm bordered the east side of the cemetery. I still have memories of my toddler years being sat on one of his horses and led around the barnyard.

THANK YOU for continuing to do all you do to keep this history going.

Hi Beverly,

I emailed "no reins" asking his source for the burial at Oakwood and he responded that "he was there". That is all he said. There is no grave photo with it. Oakwood cemetery records do not list her, Industry cemetery DOES list her in their cemetery, obituary (I believe) also said Industry, and the Illinois Death Index lists her burial in Industry. I emailed him back with my findings and he ignored them. I then put the site up in the Industry Cemetery. That is why I put the paragraph on her site. I am not sure who "no reins" is but I am trying to show accurate records. I hope that you have a good weekend!

Happy to! Is she in the Mount Sterling Cemetery? And where would I access the picture you want to put up?

John Harrison spouse & 1 daughter removal
Hi labs2006, I did send messages explaining the incorrect addition of Emily Spangler Betts (1829 - 1914)* and her daughter Rosa Bell Harrison Whiteley (1863 - 1954)* that someone incorrectly added to the Find A Grave memorial of my husband's g-g-grandfather John Harrison. But I can't find any way to remove them from John's Find A Grave, nor from the sibling section of his real children. There doesn't seem to be a removal option for correctly, only adding. I don't know where in Hancock County, IL his true wife, Jane Ann "Jensie" (Cunningham) Harrison is buried, nor her exact death year. So I haven't created a Find A Grave memorial for her yet. Plus, if I did add her as his spouse to his page, that still would not get rid of Emily and Rosa's names from the Find A Grave memorials that I do have maintain control over. So how do I go about doing that?

John Harrison
John Harrison Find A Grave #122498241 was my husband's great-great-grandfather and I am requesting his memorial page to be transferred to me please. But there are 2 errors on his current memorial that need to be fixed:

Rosa Bell Harrison Whiteley (#35007061) was NOT a daughter of my husband's great-great-grandfather, John Harrison (1805-1861) Find A Grave #122498241. Nor was he ever married to Emily Spangler Betts (#105081611) So she was not a sibling to James Harrison, Mary Harrison Holtsclaw, George Washington Harrison or my husband's great-grandfather, Edward Paxton Harrison. Someone has added these two females to our line incorrectly.

There were 3 distinctly, unrelated Harrison family lines in Hancock County in the same time period and someone has gotten confused and incorrectly added Rosa and her mother Emily to my husband's family line. So how do we get them removed from our family member memorials?
