PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, no sun shining directly into the camera, no photos with shadows of your body parts across the stone, no close ups unless it is to get a clearer photo of the names & dates (I prefer a photo of the "whole" stone), no people in the background, no tips of shoes or your reflections in the surface of a stone, no cars if at all possible and please remove dead grass, bird droppings, etc. and flowers if necessary before taking a photo. Be sure to replace flowers. Also try to take photos at a right angle to the stone so as not to distort the engravings even if this means you may have to get down on one knee to get a good quality photo. If you follow these simple requests it will prevent others from having to walk the same cemetery and take and add another photo! These are not just my preferences but are what the experts who have taken lots of photos suggest. |
One U.S. farmer provides enough food and fiber for 154 people. Farm families make up about 2 percent of the U.S. population, yet provide for themselves and the other 98 percent.
In 1896 William Jennings Bryan said it best, "Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic, But destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country." As long as the North American farmer can supply our food at a price that allows us to spend the greatest part of our income for our cars and TV's and recreational items, our high standard of living can continue. But when our farmers can no longer produce our low-cost food, or when they have no economic incentive or ability to produce this food-truly again, "the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country."
Only positive, helpful edits PLEASE!
EDITS should only be sent from the memorial you wish to have changes, corrections or links made from. Go to the memorial and click on where it says "EDIT" in the upper right hand corner of the memorial. This way I know which memorial you want me to make the necessary changes to. DO NOT send edits by leaving a message on my contributor page. This sometimes makes it very difficult for me to locate the memorial on my end!
SOURCES: Cemetery records, census & marriage records, history books, several family genealogies, obituaries and death certificates. Note that they may contain errors as I have found lots of them even on death certificates and cemetery stones! If you find a mistake, even if it is just a typing error on my part, please let me know. NO BODY IS PERFECT!
PLEASE DO NOT POST DEATH CERTIFICATES OR OBITS AS A PHOTO! I will be happy to add the info. to the bio. area if asked. Also do not add multiple photos of the grave unless it is an improvement over the original photo or if a close up is needed in addition to a photo of the "whole" stone. Also please do not add photos that have people in them or their reflections in the surface of the stone. It would also be nice if you could remove any dead grass or bird droppings before taking a photo. It would also look better if grass or flowers in front of a stone is removed before taking the photo (always put flowers back). This helps others see the names & dates which I am sure everyone would appreciate seeing in a photo.
My family & my husbands family as well as a few people that have special meaning to me, will have purple flowers (called many blue by FAG) attached to the memorial.

Thank you for your suggestions. My great grandmother was the only child of two people who never married to each other. This is why they are not connected on Find a Grave. I have more story to add to the facts if you are interested.
|Penny Neeson||RE: Hugh Keown #72704951|
thank you so much. It is wonderful to have a little info about a person by some one who actually knew them. Thank You so Much Penny

Dear Farm Girl,
Would it be possible to send me a copy of what is written about Grandpa Hugh and maybe his father John who was supposed to be in the same unit as his son when Hugh was injured. Very little is known of this family and it took me over 30 years to find him. Hugh died in 1906 and spent many long periods in the mental hospital because of his injuries during the war. I have not been able to positively find all his children or who they were. My grandmother, Hugh's great-grandchild knew nothing, and his granddaughter, grandma's mother knew nothing about her grandfather except that he became very upset at the color of red. Any info would be appreciated. thank you Penny Neeson
|Cindy G.||RE: Hazel Mathis gunnels|
thanks for linking the parents. I got the info on the sister so I thought i might as well link the sister to them also. I didn't know about the tab, but will use it from now on. Haven't worked much on Find A Grave this winter like I had hoped to. Such a bad winter, too depressing to do anything! Hope spring comes soon. Thanks for your help!

Thank you for your emails. I know about Dr Keith's research. I wish I had a copy of the book. I do have a letter that he sent to my grandfather. I appreciate your help. Judy

Hi. I never had a hard copy of the stone and it was lost in a computer crash several years ago. Once the weather warms up (Spring), I'll be happy to go take another up-close of the circle w/the farm. Right now the snow is knee deep and I'm an old woman who doesn't like cold tootsies. Stay warm. Pat
|M. Millard||RE: Relationship?|
Good morning! Thanks for your message. I've been going through a CD of photos that isn't yet completely edited, and found a baby picture of George Amos LOGAN and have added it to his memorial(Find A Grave #35916091). Studio info is with photo label.
So far I have 9 photos that contain Logans (most already have been posted). Also found some SIMMONS I hadn't processed yet. Have at least 34, so far. If you need a photo for someone, let me know and I might have one.
Stay safe and warm.

I did it on Agnes' side. Didn't think about it linking on the Finas side. Thanks for responding.
