My contributions are in honor of those, who walked before us, no disrespect is intended whatsoever by my submissions to this website.

“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.”

Born in Germany in the 60's and growing up in Berlin and Munich, I now live in Central New York. I started my own genealogy in the 70's, then did my High School and College thing in the 80's, and came to the US in the 90's. Now I am taking pictures for fun and business. Some of the photos I post are digitally enhanced, so the lettering on older grave markers is easier to read. The information on FINDAGRAVE is provided by thousands of volunteers. Please let's not forget we are all volunteers. I take exception with those volunteers who say their photos are copyrighted. Why take photos if you're not going to share them with everyone? My photos are free to anyone who wants to copy them for non-profit purposes, no need to ask. A credit to FINDAGRAVE would be nice. After all, they are just photos of grave markers, not the Mona Lisa!

If you find errors on any of my submitted items, please be so kind and let me know so I can correct those. It's important for all of us hobby-family-researchers and historians to remain accurate in the data we publish. Always glad to transfer memorials following the FaG's guidelines. Just send me a SAC: Click on the memorial's EDIT tab, then on "Suggest any other correction or addition", that way I get your number and that of the memorial.

When researching European names, pay specific attention to the spelling, especially when uncommon letters are involved. In German there are those "Umlaute": Ä, Ö, Ü, ä, ö, ü.
Do not assume that Schäfer and Schaefer are the same. And Boeck is not the same as Böck.

Search for European Nobility with and without prefix, e.g. Friedrich von Bayern or Friedrich Bayern. Frederick of Bavaria or Frederick Bavaria. For Dutch names with the "van" search with and without space: "VanAusten" and "Van Austen".

I welcome every message left for me, but will delete them after I read and acted upon them. I like my member page "clutter-free", I am German after all. Giggle.

Thank You,
May 2016

Gravestone photo for Margaret Johnstone
Hi Frank,
First of all, thank you so very much for the gravestone photos you just put on Margaret Johnstone-Simpson's memorial page (Memorial# 117569458). She is my 4X great grandma.

I created a page for her husband John I Simpson (Memorial# 161004738), and for their son-my 3X great grandpa John 2 (#160371038) and on down.

You also added a picture of Charles A. Simpson's
stone (next to his grandma Margaret's) on his page (again-Thank-you!!). Could you possibly put in the caption of the photo on Margaret's page- the one with all 3 gravestones- (but I don't know if "Butterfly Kisses" will remove it if you do...) that ...

The stone in the middle is for-
----Charles A. Simpson, (#117569459), Margaret Johnstone and John 1 Simpson's great-grandson, who was born Sept 5, 1851 and died at age 5, in Geneva, NY, on Oct 10, 1856.
Charles A. was the son of Margaret & John 1's grandson= James Pow Simpson (#139625543) and wife Amanda Jane Probasco (#5126229).
James Pow Simpson was the son of Margaret and John 1 Simpson's son= Robert Simpson (#90545086) and wife Julia Ann Pow (#90545080).

In 1832 Margaret's son-John 2 Simpson (#160371038) bought a 32 grave, 20x40 ft plot at the Washington Street Cemetery. After John 2 Simpson & his wife (Alice) Elcy Palmer moved to IL in 1835, John 2's brother- Robert Simpson (#90545086), who remained in Geneva for 40 years, put the plot in his name.

The stone on the end (marked JRS, with the ? above it)---
I was told by family that went there 40+ years ago to find Margaret (and did) that the little stone marked JRS was John Robert Simpson, but I see on his page (#117569491) he has a stone with all the same details about him as we had listed for him (Thank you for that close up picture on his page too!!).

It's certainly possible that John Robert IS actually buried there next to his grandma Margaret and Charles, but that later on, after John Robert's father Robert took over the family plot in 1835, John Robert received a new and much better carved memorial (rather than grave)stone in the cemetery. I don't know where John Robert's (117569491) engraved stone is, in relation to Margaret or any other relatives, so it's hard to know if that might be the case.

Lastly Frank-
I see you added a photo (yet again THANK YOU!) of the marriage family of Elizabeth Johnston(e)- White (Memorial# 117596788).
I have had little luck adding any additional info to 'Butterfly Kisses' memorials, so if you could possibly put as a caption to her stone's picture---(but I don't know if "Butterfly Kisses" will remove it if you do...) that---

----Elizabeth Johnston(e) White was the daughter of Margaret Johnstone-Simpson (#117569458)'s nephew = John J. Johnstone born Apr 11, 1791 Knocknalling, Kells Parish, Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland, died Nov 24, 1880 Geneva, NY, and his wife Margaret Alexander born Oct 22, 1791 and died Aug 30, 1854 when struck by lightning, in Geneva, NY.
Elizabeth was born Dec 26,1818 in Balmaclellan, Dalry Parish, Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland and died Oct 11,1843 in Geneva, New York. She was the wife of John White, born May 1814.

I hope you had a great vacation. Again, adding those gravestone pictures was a lovely surprise and I'm very grateful. If you can't or won't manage to add captions, that's fine... and I'm still very grateful for your photo efforts. Rebecca
