Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,

Since 2009 I have been working on preserving the Greenwood Cemetery. I started out taking care of a few family members there and then found more and more. I am related somehow to almost 1/2 of the cemetery.

I have been going through the cemetery stone by stone trying to physically place all the graves. I'm also trying to add names to the stones that are unreadable, which is very very hard! Sometimes I find a stone which just says mother or father even

I have been going through obituaries, church records, cemetery books, county birth records, funeral home records, and death records just trying to make sure every one is found and taken care of.

If you are within the FAG guidelines I will GLADLY transfer too.

I'm just about done with the cemetery now. :D

FAG Rules Regarding Submitting Information / Creating Memorials

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?

Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.

FAG Rules regarding duplicates:

** If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. YOU SHOULD NEVER DELIBERATELY CREATE A DUPLICATE MEMORIAL.

FAG guidelines regarding photos:

** Not obtaining permission before using others photos is a violation of copyright law and is against Find A Grave policy.

I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?

Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo.


"I don't want to submit my information and then see it for sale here or on another site. Will Find A Grave always remain a free site?

Find A Grave has been around for over ten years. Our stated goal has always been to remain a free site for everyone. We have no plans on changing that. Additionally, we claim no copyright or 'ownership' of any photos that are posted to Find A Grave. THEY REMAIN YOUR PROPERTY. If we were to turn evil and start charging people to view YOUR photos against your wishes, you would have every LEGAL RIGHT to demand that we remove them. But we're not planning on turning evil, so it shouldn't be an issue."

Do NOT steal photos from findagrave to use in your family trees on or for that matter either.

Do not copy, or post to any website, any of the pictures that I've added to Find-a-Grave Memorials.

Thank you.

David Ardrey Marker
Thank you for adding the photo of the David Ardrey marker in Altoona. I built that virtual memorial for his wife. Both are/were friends of mine. The reason I wanted the photo of the marker with the musical notes on it was that David was a musician, and while his wife asked for them on the marker they originally didn't get on there, and the cemetery counselor who she worked with really didn't care.

Thanks for all you do for

RE: Nola Saxton
I got Nola Marie Simpson Saxton's middle name back in the 1960s from her aunt Marvelle Laverne Simpson Hutchison (1903-1997). Nola's grandmother Rebecca Maria "May" Crecelius Simpson (1860-1930) was a sister of my grandmother Etta Crecelius Coulter (1862-1946). Aunt May had eight children, but Nola was her only grandchild.

Do you happen to know the name of the cemetery where Nola's father Gerald Crecelius Simpson and her son Robert Gerald Saxton are buried? I have a notation that they are both buried in Cheyenne, but I don't know if that's Cheyenne, Wyoming, or Cheyenne County, Kansas, or?

I believe Nola's husband Robert's middle name was Elmer.

Thank you!

RE: Mary Pierce Memorial
Thank you for telling me about the copyright statement. I didn't have it in the beginning but I have found many of my photos, birth & death certificates and the like posted to other websites. Some folks have the nerve to even change the name of the person in my photos. I will try to figure out what to do. Thanks again, I'm with you, why do people have to steal from a site that is meant for finding ancestors and cherishing their memories.
Blessing in all your endeavors.

Lydia Seem update
I added a bio note in Lydia's memorial that reflects a more accurate account for Lydia. Please disregard my previous note.

Thanks again.

Frank Burnside's wife at Bloomington
Hi there,
On the marker for Lydia Seem at Bloomington Friends cemetery, it shows that she is the mother of Cidney Burnside. and have info about Sidney Sharpless Gibbons Davidson Burnside in the info that's been included in the memorial for Frank Burnside's wife. There aren't references to her elsewhere. In all records, and on the stone, the name is Cidney. She is the child of Charles H. Seem and Lydia Hoopes Seem and has other children Emma and Edna Seem buried at Bloomington. Here's the link to Cidney's mother's stone.

The markers for Willie and Ella Burnside will need better photos before they can be legible. Do we know where the Sharpless Gibbons Davidson names enter the history? Thanks for all you do on

RE: Morgan family
If you have her husband's parents, try looking at them on the census closest to when Rachel was married....look at the other names on the street and on the pages before and after. Many times people married someone who lived on their block, or within a few blocks....chances are good they lived near each other before marriage.

RE: Morgan family
The recording and keeping of death certificates was not required in PA until 1906. All PA death certificates 1906-1944 are now online in two locations. Rachel died before this time, so there is probably not a death certificate for her. There are some earlier City of Pittsburgh Death Certificates in a file online at, but they were only beginning to keep records, and were not required to do so, so this file certainly does not contain all of the city deaths during those years. If she died within what were the City limits at that time, and during the few years in this file, there might be something there, otherwise, none exists. If there is no death certificate, you can contact the Uniondale office, their records often, but not always, contain cause of death.
