I've been doing genealogy on mine and my husband's extended families for about 12 years. Most of the graves I have input so far are relatives, some closer than others. Some are not related at all, I just saw the graves and thought I'd better enter the information on the stones before it weathered away completely. So if you find your own relatives among my entries please feel free to contact me, If we're related perhaps we can share information. If you're a closer relative to an entry than I, and would like to manage your relative's site, please let me know. I will be happy to transfer the site to you.
Alfred F Martin & grand-dau Jenna Mae Hi, Pat, So glad to find your posting (Find A Grave Memorial# 30917825) on Alfred F Martin and the picture of him with his grand-daughter. Jenna Mae Martin was born 8 May 1914, so the picture was likely taken shortly after that as Jenna Mae looks to be just a month or two old in the picture! Jenna Mae is distantly related to my cousin (by marriage) James Clack. best regards, Elaine

Lyman Township Cemetery I am writing to ask permission to use photos you have added to Find A Grave for families buried in Lyman Township Cemetery. I have a FB page titled Roberts Illinois History that I would love to show some of your photos. Please visit the Facebook page. I understand if you prefer not, but I'm sure others would truly enjoy your marvelous photographs. Thank you. Jan Dowell
RE: Mary Moat From what I read she was going to spend some time in California for the winter with a sister and died while there so they brought her back and buried her in Wessington Springs, SD. Yes it is Mary Moat.
