I love history, we have so many lessons to learn from it. Having grown up in Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia, like many southerners I was raised to revere my ancestors and the legacy they left.
This site gives the opportunity to give honor to those who have gone before It is a place of reverence and the history of famous, infamous and many ordinary people who have lived good and loving lives.
I am especially pleased to see that Findagrave has so many of our honored veterans. We are a proud Marine Corps family, four generations with others in the future I am sure.
God bless all of you who leave notes, they are appreciated and will be reciprocated.
Nathaniel Templeton I am a direct descendant of Nathaniel Templeton. He is my great(6th) grandfather. Through find a grave I have tracked his particular lineage. Do you have any info of ancestors prior to Nathaniel? You can contact me via e-mail.
Thank You So Much Thank you for the lovely, lovely message you left on my beloved Craig's memorial. ❤ It truly touched my heart. He's deeply loved and missed. Have a blessed Christmas season. Fondly, Suse
