Bio Photo PASSED (PAST) PEOPLE

My graver name comes from my sons. "She's going to go hang out with the dead people". I prefer to call them the "Passed (or Past) People"! Been in love with cemeteries since my childhood as a preacher's kid, wandering in the cemeteries near our churches, and attending my fair amount of funerals, too.

CHANGES?
To change information click on the "EDIT" tab at the top right of the memorial

PLEASE DO NOT ADD ANY PHOTOS YOU DID NOT TAKE.

DUPLICATES happen. Let me know in the "other comments" section of the "Suggest a Correction" section and include the number of the original memorial.

TRANSFERS:
Please be as specific as you can in stating relationships. My decision, on a case-by-case basis.
OBITUARY: please credit the source. Don't post an actual obituary text from a newspaper photo. I will edit out survivors unless it is made prior to 1932.

MY PHOTOS - OK to use.

RE: Crowther duplicates in Sunset, Manhattan
You're welcome! I always welcome help on my memorials. Sunset Cemetery is quite interesting. I had never been there before.

RE: Elvina Martens
Ancestry.com has her full maiden name listed as well as scanned documents and pictures of her. That is how I came across her middle name and wanted to add that to her memorial. Hope there's no inconvenience.

Hi!
You created a Find A Grave for Lydia E. Jameson #90171539.
Can you tell me are you related to her, or know anything about her family?

Thanks
Mary Escher

RE: Ermaine Davies
Thank you, so much, for these transfers! If it's convenient to update the marker photo, that would be great... but please don't go out of your way to do so. It's still a wonderful photo. Thanks, again!

RE: Hafffener
I will also take responsibility for her parents as well.

How did you come to have so many to care for?

Thanks for getting back to me. It would be my honor to take over Teresa's memorial. Thanks for everything you have done.

RE: Robert Parizo edits
Yes, if you would like that. He's probably a distant relative of my husband. I happened upon the brother's entry and became interested in their family.

Teresa Sue Frost/Haffener
I was asked to get a photo of the grave of Teresa Sue Frost (#117418365) and discovered that there was already photos for that grave under the name, Teresa Sue Haffener (#89152771). These are obviously the same person. The cemetery records have "Frost", but the stone has "Haffener." Her infant child is buried with her and has the name Haffener. Perhaps her maiden name was Haffener and she had a child while unmarried and later married Frost or she simply kept her maiden name. In any event one of the memorials might have to be removed or, at least, some note on both as to the names.

RE: Elizabeth Corwin
I don't have an Ancestry account either or I would see what I could get for you. Does your library have the library edition of Ancestry? You could look it up on there. That is what I do. I bring a USB with me and save the image to the USB. You can also have documents emailed to you through their account. It is something to check into.

The photo on mooseroots looks to be a basic family photo. The reason I know that is because I did a search for a family member of mine and the same photo shows up. I didn't see anything on ancestry when I did a basic search of the photos. There are a few that have Earl West Corwin in their family tree, but I don't see where they have photos added to the tree for them. I am sorry I couldn't help you more with that. Where did they live when they were growing up? Depending on where they lived there may be some yearbooks at some of the libraries that might have a photo of them in it. Not all libraries have the yearbooks, but it is worth a try.

I am sorry I couldn't help you more. Hope your weekend is a good one. Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
