I'll be PLEASED and HAPPY if you'll use and share my photos of headstones for historical and family purposes! I'll be HAPPY if you do, and disappointed if you don't! So, SHARE, SHARE, SHARE! In return, please just direct people back to findagrave when you can, so they'll use this wonderful site. |
ANOTHER NOTE ABOUT MY PHOTOS: I often digitally remove the birthdate of the living spouse from a double headstone, as a courtesy to the living, to protect identity-sensitive information from being readily available on the internet.
ABOUT ME: I have other pursuits, but what could be more interesting than telling about one's involvement in genealogy and cemeteries? :)
One of my earliest memories is cleaning the family cemetery plots. My uncles, aunts, and parents loaded up the garden tools and us kids, (I was three,) and we raked and weeded. The sun was coming up, and I was taught that we will all be resurrected someday. (One of my aunts must have been talking to us about it.) It gave me a sweet Easter feeling.
When I was fifteen, my mom told a couple of stories about great-grandparents. It fascinated me. Family history is a slippery slope. :) Once a person starts down that path.... I collected some information then, but other things demanded time and attention.
Decades later, I have a bit more time to devote to Family History. I love helping others with family history by contributing to findagrave.com!

Hi Tom! Birthdate for Leroy Holgate: April 29, 1895
Deathdate: March 1891. (I found a semi-reliable source that differs from headstone on the exact day, whether it's the 8th or the 11th of March. If I ever find out for sure, I'll let you know!) Thanks for the good work.
Andy, I gave him a 1901 year of death. The message you sent me had him dying 4 years before he was born. If I read the year on the tombstone wrong, let me know.

Sure - there is no headstone, but some rocks mark the grave. Thanks.
|Joyce Major||George Hoopes|
I did a bunch of research on this, but forgot to claim the request. Please contact me at my email. Thanx.
|Tom Todd||RE: Nancy Harris 30110061|
You are most welcome.

I am going to send you a message through one of your memorial with my email address in it. I am going to try and get the Skaggs members all connected together. I love history and putting these types of puzzles together.
|Rita Osborne||WOW Thank you|
You were busy. Thank you for adding all the headstone photos. I love it. Now I am busy adding everyone information. Thank you again very very much
|mommycita||Elzina Cheney [Thatcher]|
You are correct on her name. Thanks for calling that to my attention.
|Sue Richardson||George Seymour Birdno|
Thanks for your photo and suggestion. It looks like the "9" has been changed to a "2" on the headstone, and I'm sure the 2 is probably correct, so I have changed it on the memorial. Thanks again!

As per your request on above, read online death certificate as stated on memorial under Note.. Someone apparently replaced an old headstone and didn't have correct information as happens all too often.
