Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family for about 15 years, starting with my maternal grandparents. They were born in Campbell County, Tennessee and migrated by covered wagon to Oklahoma.

I have tried to restrict my memorials to my direct paternal and maternal family lines, the grandparents of various degrees. Then somehow some aunts and uncles of various degrees were included, then a few cousins, then . . .

Of course, Find A Grave requires that we know where are ancestors are buried in order to create memorials on this web site, thus, the further we go back the fewer memorials we each have because we do not know where those early ancestors are. However, there are known burial locations for at least two of my ancestors that go waaaaay, way back. You might want to visit their memorials:
William and Matilda . They are my 28th great grandparents on my paternal grandmother's side of the family. When you get back that far, you have a LOT of cousins.
Find A Grave statement regarding headstones:

How do I clean a headstone or grave marker?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone. By related, this does not mean, for example, if you are a third cousin three times removed.

Gravestones should never be cleaned with anything but water and a soft brush. Slate gravestones from the Revolutionary era and Pre-revolutionary era are best left alone due to their delicate nature and tendency to erode.

Never apply bleach, ammonia, shaving cream, chalk, flour, baking soda, cornstarch, firm pressure or use anything abrasive.

Do not post photos of recently chalked or shaving-creamed headstones.

I invite researchers of East Tennessee to the memorial for Peter Graham Fulkerson . The name P.G. Fulkerson is probably more familiar. P.G. was a farmer, lawyer, judge and district attorney general who also had an interest in history and genealogy. He created brief records, perhaps a paragraph or two, of some of the early settlers of Claiborne County. As he created for some of my ancestors, his memorial is my brief record, a paragraph or two, of The Honorable Peter Graham Fulkerson.

Take time to follow the link on his memorial to his answers to The Tennessee Civil War Veterans Questionnaires.

RE: Lorene and John Twiehaus
Indeed, I knew them well, worked for them indirectly right after high school at their Farm in Grandview. I worked for their trainer, Charley Judd. I was thinking about Lorene this afternoon in front of the wood stove and wondering how old she was when I knew her, 54. I had a bloody hard time locating any information on her and finally found them thanks to you. Are you related to them?

Glad I could help. I made memorials for both Helen Cody Eib & Gloria L. Eib and if you would like me to transfer them to you, I would be glad to do so.

RE: Paul Frederick 119377842
Hi Janet,

I found how to do the memorial and I created a new one.I have deleted the one from the cemetery.
The new one is 137378891

But how do I delete the cemetery I created?
