Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia

A former large volume F-A-G Contributor had a dispute with Find-A-Grave staff and Deleted some 80% or more, of their contributed memorials, estimated to be about 40,000 or so. Thus causing the rest of us local Contributors, over the last year or more, to re-enter those family, friends and distant relatives we noted were missing.

Once F-A-G had decided to take positive action, they reloaded all the Deleted memorials from that former F-A-G Contributor, on Wednesday, 25feb2015. F-A-G staff, undoubtedly knew they would cause tens of thousands of Duplicates, and assigned their staffer, known as 'ProjectMgr' to work through their Merge process.

Please be patient and allow F-A-G to work through the entire group of Duplicate memorials.

Thank you.


My primary Find-A-Grave foci are the following cemeteries for which I clip Death Notices:
-ANC - Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington,Va
-CG - Columbia Gardens Cemetery, Arlington, Va
-MC - Merrifield Cemetery, Falls Church, Va
-NMP - National Memorial Park, Falls Church, Va
-OC - Oakwood Cemetery, Falls Church, Va
-QNC - Quantico National Cemetery, Pr Wm Co, Va

Anyone having interest in ANC & QNC, primarily, that would like to add memorials and/or death notice data, I have been amassing them since I joined FAG and could use your help. Just send me an e-mail indicating your focus and I'll arrange as many as you would like to handle and mail/deliver them to you. Thank you in advance for your consideration. Special Note: Due to several prolific FAG Contributors, most of the Death Notices I have clipped have been memorialized with only the basics: name, dates and cemetery data. Many of the DNs have relatives, living and predeceased, plus biographical data that are truly worthly of posting, and Linking. This type of enhancement requires submitting the data to the original Contributor or transfer of the memorial to other caring Contributors willing to do this further step. My sincere thanks to those who have offered to assist me in the past.

To all those wonderful people who add photos, provide link data, etc, and those who simply offer 'flowers' to any of my memorials, I humbly Thank You on behalf of those who have passed on.


Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

*You know who you are when you know who they were.*

*Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed, forever dear.*

Per FAG Contributor Treva Poe.


No terror has death, or the grave,
To those who believe in the Lord -
Who know the Redeemer can save,
And lean on the faith of his word;
While ashes to ashes, and dust
We give unto dust, in our gloom,
The light of Salvation we trust,
Which hangs like a lamp in the tomb.


Unable are the loved to die.
For love is immortality.
~ Emily Dickinson ~


A fine compilation by Contributor Patricia, 4753 3805, of worthy words:

Lastly, a few thoughts on genealogy . . .

The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. . . Herbert Spencer

Nothing makes our ancestors seem more real than to walk where they walked and to stand where they finally came to rest.

Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories. . . Unknown

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. . . Anonymous

"There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." ~Author Unknown


"When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." - Fredrick Beekner

As found on 'Calmly Searching's Contributor page.


"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."


When we are dead and people weep for us and grieve,
Let it be because we touched their lives in a special way.

Let it not be said that life was good to us but rather we were good to life.

We should not measure life by its length but by the value it gave.

Lives that have been intimately intertwined,
can not possibly be separated without pain.

It is a miracle, nothing less than a miracle,
That flowers bloom every spring,
That living thing begets living thing
That we human beings immerge again and again
From ignorance to knowledge from hopelessness to
From sadness to joy.
It is a miracle nothing less than a miracle.

They are not dead, those who leave us this heritage of remembered joy,
They still live in our hearts in the happiness we knew,
In the dreams that we shared.

They still breathe in the lingering fragrance,
Windblown by their favourite flowers.

They still smile in the moonlight silver,
And laugh in the sunlight sparkling gold.

They still speak in the echoes of words we have heard them say again and again.

They still dance in the rhythm of the grass and dance in the branches of the trees.

They are not dead,
their memory is warm in our hearts,
comfort in our sorrow.

They are not apart from us but a part of us.
For love is eternal and those we love shall be with us for all Eternity.

Pusser Memorials
I have transferred several Pusser memorials to you since you have expressed an interest in them. Maybe through your research, you can add to their memorials. Please let me know if there are others that you would like to have.
Good luck,
Mary Jo

Dear No Name,

Your message has left me speechless. Are you really serious? I do this on a volunteer basis. Oh, my finger almost slipped and hit the wrong button. I will do my utmost to hit the proper button at all times. You have an assistant? This is not my profession, but an attempt to help others.

I have a daughter with stage IV breast cancer, and I don't have time for your trivialities. I will delete this memorial and you can put it in yourself.

Thank you for your suggestion - I'll see to that! And yes, my mother is in the photo you mentioned.
I hope to get a current picture of Ernie and his family with all the children and grandchildren, and at some point get all of my aunts and uncles sponsored.

RE: Mueller, Walter H - 87863500 - Cedar Hill Cem
That would be great! It's always nice to meet another Find A Grave'er who is passionate about helping others. My husband isn't too keen on it. He frowns on me "playing with dead people" :{
It's a great stress reliever for me. It's all very peaceful and even exciting when I come across a grave someone is looking for a picture of when I'm walking the cemeteries. And better yet I've never found a dead person that's whined, complained, or given me crap about anything! LOL!

RE: Your daughter Jaime
What in the world are you talking about? I don't have a daughter named Jaime. You obviously have the wrong person. Is this some kind of a cruel joke?

RE: Mueller, Walter H - 87863500 - Cedar Hill Cem
Wow, what an awesome, touching message!
I consider myself a "problem solver" by nature. Cedar Hill was quite a challenge. I rented a room at the hotel on Andrew's Air Force Base for a week and explored Cedar Hill every day from the time I woke up til the dark. Then I'd go back to the hotel, download the pics of the day and get ready to do it all over again. That's my idea of a great vacation, (not to mention great exercise!) My husband calls it "playing with dead people"! LOL! Anyway, hopefully, I can go back soon and find Mr. Mueller. The workers there were so nice. They gave me maps of every section so I'm ready!!
And I am honored to be among your friends :)
If there's ever anything you need in my part of the world (DE, MD, VA, PA) please let me know!

I haven't been able to locate her.
