I feel these memorial should be maintained by family whenever possible. With that in mind, if I am not personally related to the person, I will be happy to transfer the memorial. |
I spend most of my free time working on my Family history and find roaming old cemeteries is amazing. Some of the headstones I see are nearly unreadable, some are eroded to the point they can no longer be read. This saddens me knowing they are lost forever, no one will ever know who they were. By taking photos and sharing the info, maybe someone who is searching will find who they are seeking.

Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on. Cherished memories will never fade, because ones loved is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart,for as long as there is a memory, they live with in our heart.

|Kimberly ||RE: re: deletion of 73042985|
This is what I found:
On the other side of this stone are George B. McGinnis and his wife Lavina Molsberger McGinnis.
Amelia "Millie" Molsberger Hillman 12/11/1869-9/28/1943. Wife of Leonard Hillman. Daughter of Arnold and Elizabeth (Oswald) Molsberger. Lavina (her sister) provided info on Amelia's death certificate.
Mary "Maria" Molsberger Scullion 12/11/1865-12/6/1944. Wife of John Scullion. Daughter of Arnold and Elizabeth (Oswald) Molsberger. Lavina (her sister) provided info on Maria's death certificate.
Joanna McGinnis Smith 2/22/1861-2/17/1949. Daughter of Joseph and Eliza (Cooley) McGinnis. Sister of George B. McGinnis. Wife of John Smith. Her sister-in-law, Lavina, provided info on Joanna's death certificate.
Amelia and Mary are not McGinnis. They are on their sister's stone/in her plot. Joanna's birth name was McGinnis and she is there also - in her brother's plot.
Hope this clears up the confusion. Kimberly

Hello - Thank you for replying. The information for Maria is per her death certificate. She was buried at Dickerson on Dec. 9, 1944. Her parents (per death certificate) are correctly listed. She was married to John J. Scullion who died before her.
I understand she is on a stone with the name McGinnis. However, I cannot find how she is related. McGinnis is my family tree. My mother's maiden name is McGinnis and family is from Washington County. On that note, a Lavinia(?) McGinnis is the person who provided the info on her death certificate.
I would never take someone else's photo and add to my memorials. The photo on my memorial - I took. Besides, my memorial was created first so how could your photo be on the memorial I created first?
I am going to investigate further to see how Maria is tied into the McGinnis family. In the meantime, I am going to keep my memorial up since there is no proof she was a McGinnis. What you do with your memorial for her is up to you.
Surely don't mean for this to be a huge issue. - Kimberly

|Heidi Brown||RE: Rosemont|
Hi there - I had good intentions, but never followed through with adding all the cemetery markers. You and a couple other people sent me things I need to correct, but I haven't used this in a year or two. Will you please tell me how I make the corrections? Thanks! Heidi
|Annie Duckett Hundley||RE: Roy H Freek|
I'm sorry, I'm not related to Roy H. Freek. I left an offering on his memorial when I linked him to his daughter, whose memorial I created. I hope you'll be able to locate his family...I'm so glad you're among those of us willing to seek them out to see to it they might have photos or documents that belong to their posterity.
|Greg Tucker||RE: Violet Moore Van Sickle|
Thanks much for your help and the additional info! This one is an ongoing mystery to me---I'll keep working on it. Violet's first husband Albert Mumaw is a distant cousin of mine. If you have no objection to transferring Violet's memorial to me, I would be grateful, and it may facilitate future changes/entries. If you prefer to retain it, that's okay too.
|Judy Clayton Hagberg||RE: Leslie Harold Alexander 99521454|
Thank you so very much for the transfer.
Thank you for the reply and the searches, Yes I remember now what you mentioned about not headstones or crosses :( I dont have a problem having Tomasa's DC posted, quite the opposite. I have it but didn't occur to me to post it since I was so focused on finding Ysabel N Carlos.
Eugenio Tarango's mother is Jesusita, Jesus was a male. I can't find anything about him in Fort Stockton, I found a Jesus DC in a different town, didn't have enough info to substantiate it was the same guy. I am sure Eugenio & Jesusita are related to my Tarango ancestors, I just don't know from where.
Through DNA I came across a 4th cousin from San Antonio with a Tarango grandmother, I researched his Tarango side in Chihuahua, Mx all the way to the 1700's when Mx was "Nueva Espana". I have yet to link Carlos to one of them. Like you mentioned, I have to consult the Historical society and hope they have something. I came across Tomasa's descendants through DNA as well but have less info. They are in their 7th- 8th Generation from Carlos T. while I am 5th Gen. They proliferated at a faster rate, ha ha!
I truly appreciate the research you have done, once again thank you!!!

|Thayer75||RE: 3 Memorials to you!|
Thank you so much for the transfers! I did not find out anything yet. I contacted the St. Joseph Catholic Church and was told their records only went as far as the 1930's to 40's in some areas and couldn't find their names. The front desk lady volunteered to go the the cemetery and look if I gave her a picture of an area where I thought they could be. I wouldn't know since I've never been to Texas. By any chance would you remember where you thought you might have seen Carlos Tarango's possible grave? close to Senovia? If the local church doesn't have this information I wonder if The mormon church would have the record on film.
Hope all is well for you,

|Tom King||RE: hollander|
What you hadn't considered is that all of the data for the Albert Hollander after he abandoned Dulcie and his daughter is entirely invented. There is no record of an Albert born c1880 in Cleveland or anywhere else on any census until 1930 as this new identity claims. According to his sister Martha Coats, he had contacted one of his brothers in Cisco in the 1950's.

|Tom King||RE: re: Missing Hollander|
This doesn't make any sense. Whose middle name was Charles? How can he be Albert Curran Hollander if his middle name is Charles? I've researched this line for 50+ years and I am positive of my research,
having gained membership in the Sons of the American Revolution 1972 on Martha Breedlove's grandfather's war service.
