Bio and Links
I started researching our children's family history in Oct 2012, discovering FindAGrave within a few weeks. It has been so helpful in my own research that it seems appropriate to give something back. My goal is to return the favor 10 for 1; i.e. by a combination of creating memorials and uploading photos to achieve ten times the number of memorials I have referenced in my genealogy work.

After both good and not so good encounters with other contributors, I decided to treat the FAG guidelines for transfers as just that, guidelines. I will transfer memorials to others whose relationship to the person memorialized is closer than my own.

As of 12 June 2014:

Memorials used by me: 375
Photos uploaded + memorials created = 2042

Work to do: 3750-2042 = 1708 photos and memorials

Fred & Ida are husband & wife as you deduced. Edith Viola married their son, Fred Shaw, Jr. She is their daughter-in-law.

RE: Re: Benjamin Smith
I'm sorry this Benjamin has proved not to be a relative. I know (because my last name is Johnson) how frustrating it can be to follow up a good lead only to find that person is no relation at all. Feel free to leave the photo request up. Sooner or later, someone will come looking for this particular Benjamin.

Re: Benjamin Smith
Regarding your photo request for the marker of Benjamin F. Smith, Green Lawn Cemetery, Columbus, Ohio: I searched the interment records and found that he is buried in section 27, lot 165. The birth and death dates are as appear on Find a Grave. He was born in Lawrence county, Ohio, the son of Benjamin and Elizabeth (Penn) Smith. He died of pulmonary tuberculosis, and was buried on May 12, 1913. I found him in the 1870 Lawrence county, Ohio, census with his parents and siblings Charles, Henry, Elizabeth, Ida and Ethel. I have not found a record of marriage for him. I'll do a headstone search soon.
