|Bio and Links|
I am a family historian in my fourth decade of researching, and most of the memorials I have created or manage are for ancestors and members of my widely extended family. About one in six are of either siblings or of direct relatives, though a slightly larger number are of more distant ancestors. The remaining two-thirds of the memorials I manage are for more distant relatives and their spouses, plus a few memorials for old friends of mine who had not yet been placed on FindAGrave.|
I have a special memorial here for my goddaughter, Anastasia WitbolsFeugen, and the domain at which I keep my email ("Stasia.org") is where her real memorial is.
I am grateful to all who visit these memorials, read their stories, and leave mementos for them. Should you find some of your own family among these, I am willing to transfer, as we're probably related anyway.

|Alice Silva||Joseph Rock|
I was adopted at birth and have recently been doing research on my roots. Joseph Rock is my great, great grandfather. I was astounded to find all this personal information written about his life. It's so wonderful to know these details because it makes him a real person, instead of just dry facts like birth and death dates. Thank you so much for all you do!

I am a McGinnis, and William S. was approximately my great, great, great uncle (it gets confusing. My g-g-g-grandfather was his brother Greenbury. I spent the afternoon at Find-A-Grave researching Uncle William, and learned so very much about him and his family due in part to your excellent research. I am so very impressed with your work. I knew a lot about William but your input, as well as others' in-depth research, really "fleshed out" Bill and his family, and what they endured. I feel a great deal of sympathy for them. Thank you so much for your detailed, exacting information. It is rare to find facts from other researchers I feel I can rely upon, and since I have been researching for about 15 years now, you are truly the exception in my experience. Thank you so much.

|Conroy-Harvey||RE: Sarah Conroy|
Third cousins once removed? Confusing. I get 3rd cousins, but what is considered once removed?
I am a descendant of James Conroy (the grandson). He is my maternal grandfather. I was in St Joseph last year and found Sarah & James Conroy headstone, but could not make out Sarah's inscription.
Can you possibly decipher the inscription and post it here?

I have added the changes you requested to Isabella Ross. Since she is a member of your family, I would be happy to transfer management to you.
|Mary Schatz||Lucy Gray|
I have transferred the four Gray memorials to you. Always glad to connect families.
|Mary Schatz||Lucy Gray|
I have made the corrections on Lucy's memorial. If you would like, I will be glad to transfer Lucy and her family to you.
|Conroy-Harvey||Sarah Byrne O'Rourke Conroy|
My grandfather was James Augustus O'Rourke who was adopted and became James Austin Conroy. I was in Missouri and located James & Sarah's monument (my grandfather's adopted grandparents) but could not make out the inscription on Sarah's. Does anyone know what it says?
James Conroy (adopted grandfather) inscription reads:
"His mortal tread is heard no more
His weary march is done
He sleeps beneath the flage he loved
The man of sixty-one".
BUT, we can't make out all of Sarah's inscription. If anyone is interested in filling in the gaps, take a trip to Hurlingen and see what you can make out. So far I've only gotten the first line
'Hopes are crushed and hearts....."
A mystery to be solved!
