Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found Find-A-Grave (aka FAG) accidentally, but I love the idea, hope that it always stays free to the public.

If there is something I've posted that you question, or are concerned about; please contact me. I'd like to get the information on the memorial as correct and complete as possible.

I try to use as many sources as possible (that I can get to) to get the information correct; such as Cemetery records, Church Records, Funeral home records, County records, State records, obituaries, & from the families; but I know mistakes can be made. Please let me know.
One problem that comes up a LOT, is duplication; since I work mainly from church records, I have no idea if indeed there are 2 cemeteries; or 1 cemetery with various different names that were used over years; both instances have occurred. But what is the right answer?? I have found 1 person who has two stones in 2 cemetery's in 2 different STATES; but where is the body actually?? Or a different person entirely? I can't tell you because I don't know.

Myself? I am researching for my own inter-related family branches as well; Bahr, Baker, Hays, Keyes, Kussmann, McLaughlin, Meeker, Shaw, Visger, and Walker (up to great-great-grandparents and all their siblings so far).

I found a statement about links that is similar to my own beliefs. Myself? I believe in adding information as found because others might not have that particular detail that will help them. I have requested of Melaney Friesen Shaum to be able to use it and with permission, here it is:

Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten.

I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.

RE: Stephen Hays 70396044
Did you find a link to a Hays patriot? I am interested in your DAR application - has it been approved yet?

Stephen Hays/Hayes was my great-great grandfather. His oldest son, George Washington Hayes, was my great-grandfather.

How are you related? I'm sure we can work this out.

Best wishes,

Thanks for the information on the parental links. I didn't know where her parents were. "Sally" is my husband's maternal great grandmother.

You sent me a message: "Because the information I have is much older he is not included in the plots map, can you tell me who is on either side. Please??"

I wish I could. My photos are strictly of the grave markers that I went to go look for. I do not have any photos, records or other information about the other graves.

Sorry for the late reply. I get so many requests that it is hard to get back to everyone in a timely manner.

You requested a photo and a transfer for Daniel Bahr. I have added a photo to his memorial and transferred his memorial to you.
