I enjoy helping others out. As well as working on my family history. If I can help in my area let me know. I will try to help get your photo and or obituary, if possible.|
However, after going out of my way to get pictures and the such, I would appreciate it if Marcia would stop trolling the findagrave site and nit picking at my and "other" contributors work, effort and help. We are all adults, or so should be.
I am human and do make mistakes, just like the rest of us. (Whether some want to admit it or not is still out for debate. LOL)
If you find a problem, please be kind when asking for corrections to be made. Most would agree that a polite contact is the best kind of contact.
In the event you find memorials that need to be linked. Please provide proof that it is husband and wife buried together. I've gotten wrong information. What a headache that was. So please provide proof. Thanks!!
Currently I am inputting information from cemetery books. I am not trying to have a bunch of memorials under my number WHO CARES???
What I care for is to list the forgotten, for those that are searching for loved ones. Not knowing where in the "county" they are resting. Since inputting the cemetery book info. I have had several people contact me because I had solved mysteries where their relatives are buried at.
Found this wonderful writing by: Thelma Greene Reagan.
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY LEAF
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Thanks so much for the photo! I appreciate it! Anne
I noticed that you are managing the site for William Butterfield. I'm trying to verify that Green And Elizabeth Butterfield are his parents. Do you have anything or can you help with that? Thanks,

Hi! I was going to start a memorial for Sarah and saw you had already taken care of making sure she is remembered. Thank you so very much!
Sarah's father was John Allen and his link number is 136551540. My proofs are obituaries, family trees from direct descendants, and best of all Sarah's diary from the mid-nineteenth century where she speaks of her father and where he is buried.
Sarah's mother was Georgeann Botts. My proofs are the same as for her father plus I own the diary of Georgeann's granddaughter, Flora Helen Manier Geiger. Georgeann's link is 136532956.
This information is being provided from direct lineage and I hope it helps.

|Stephen Cantrell||RE: Infant Hedgcock|
You're welcome...and thank you! BTW - I also made two edit suggestions, one linking him to his father and the other changing given name from Infant to Infant Son.
Have a great day!
|Deb McCallister||Changing photo|
When you go to add any picture the photo page
shows: Type of photo
file to upload.....
On the type of photo you can click on the arrow
and it will show: grave, person, family, other.
(Not something you notice at first)
Obits can be added as other and they won't show up as the headstone icon on the page.
Person is for a person's photo and that picture will stay on the top of the page, even if headstone or other photos are added.
To change one, just re-add it as "other" and delete the first one. Have a good day!
