***************************************

Born 1959. Married, 6 children. Love history, cemetery art and gardening. I have been doing genealogy for 30+ years.

******************************************
I am a historian. I document an event for future generations. I am not a "hawk" or a "vulture". I do not get paid for this, I do not gain anything from this. I do not wish to disrupt your grieving process. I do not do this to disrespect anyone.

I believe that after 3 or 4 generations, everyone is basically forgotten. Our graves sit there deteriorating without a care. I especially feel for childless couples or infants and children, they are forgotten sooner. I love this website, because generation after generation, our future family will be able to come here, and see our graves, and with a little love and care can see our faces also. Tracing our lineage will be so much easier for future generations.

I will post obits on memorials with proper citation. I know some people feel that this info is "private" or "personal" but.... it was PUBLISHED IN THE PAPER FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE.
99% of the time this info is invaluable to genealogists. I have had cemeteries tell me they are private property and those interred there want privacy. If someone truly wants privacy, get cremated and scattered over the ocean, don't put up a huge headstone with your name, dates...... Like having a huge billboard up on a highway and you are asked not to look at it or read it........SILLY.

**Please, no drama. I report, ignore and block, rude or offensive communications.**

I also feel creating memorials for living people is disrespectful. Anyone can find names and dates to enter, but to truly do the job correctly, the names, obits, dates and links should be complete. If you add an obit, it should be as it was printed.

My paternal grandparents were Wavie (nee Rench) & Jesse Botkin. She was the first schoolteacher in Atlanta. Jesse ran the store in town. I have a 2006 copy of the cemetery records. I will try to get the transcribed into Find A Grave.

I do my best to post accurately and respectfully.

I LOVE FINDAGRAVE. I love making corrections. I want my memorials to be as complete as possible. Bring on the additional information. I am on here every day.


I am researching my genealogy, surnames: Botkin, Tonelli, Rench, Redenbo, Kuhn, Chrisman, Reeves, Crutchley, Boggs, Borror, Leach, Studebaker, Mumper, Jones, Houghtling, Terenzoni, Bartoli, Luchini, Ceci, Kieken, Gbur, Davia, Eggert, Horn, Inman, Redenbo, Winter, Spadaro, Davis, Hester, Curl, Shepperd, Maury, Sasser, Humfleet, Sprinkel, Allen, Clark, Brown, Gilbert, Read/Reed, Weber, Hauser, Davies, Dyerhin, Hainlein, Bomher, Fitzpatrick, Halper, O'Connor, Keevil, Cunningham, just to name a few.

Beatrice Pearl Norris Botkin
I assume you are related to Kenneth A. Botkin. I am trying to find the grave of his wife, Beatrice Pearl Norris Botkin. I made a photo request and the person could not find her grave at Grant Memorial Park, Marion, Grant County, Indiana
Plot: E 673.

Do you have any information regarding her burial and grave?

I am a relative of Beatrice.

Thank you

The memorial for Ralph Leonard Vining says that he was "son of Thomas & Charlotte (Smith) Vincent". Is Vincent a typo, or do you know of a name change in this family?

Thanks,
Tom

Marcus "Mark" Pounds bio
Wow! Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I was probably tired when I made that mistake. That's why my Ancestry tree is named Misstex - for Mississippi father and Texas mother - but also the mistexts! Mark Pounds was my grandmother's father. Should have treated him better. My mother had fond memories of Nancy Gann Pounds. When she first visited from Texas, Nancy was sitting on the front porch in Marietta with her apron in a bundle on her lap. She opened it to show off her baby "biddies" she was caring for. Loved her chickens. Thanks again. Barbara

RE: Dewey Price
Rita, I'm sorry but I don't remember my question to you. Delpha Price was my grandmothers sister & she is the mother of James Dewey & grandmother of Dewey Eugene.

Memorial #120769298
Information in this memorial (for "Ralph Leonard Vining") says that he was a son of "Thomas & Charlotte (Smith) Vincent". Was there a name change, or is one of these surnames incorrect? I noted that there are several Vincents reported for Belvidere Cemetery (Belvidere, Illinois) but only one Vining.

Thanks,
Tom
