Please let me know if you would like me to transfer any of my memorials to your family that are not in my family. My grandson Owen and I really enjoy this time together. He especially likes the veteran areas and is really into Gettysburg and Lincoln. We found a relative that had brunch with Lincoln on the day of his address and then she sat on the platform steps to hear his speech. |
We have taken many extra photos when looking for family so that someone else can use them. Please do not hesitate to ask for a transfer.
There are many headstones that are completely erased by time or very hard to read. I will list those as Unknown in the hope that maybe someone will recognize them. I will leave flowers so that they know they were not forgotten.
And for all the Findagrave members, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I was fortunate enough to have an encounter with my Dad who passed in 1995. While visiting our cemetery, I always stop and check the flowers I had put on the grave. Last time I was there, I was sitting in my car (hot outside) and a brief fragrance came past me. I recognized it immediately. It was the same way my Dad smelled after showering and shaving in the morning getting ready for the office. I have not smelled that pleasant fragrance since 1995.
The latest surprise I had was at Hampton Union cemetery in Hampton, PA. When I got home and loaded my photos on the computer, I had a picture I did not take. It was a complete figure of a person that was translucent. But the odd part was that I was alone that day. It could have been me but my arms are not long enough to take a full body picture and there was no background--no other stones, trees, grass or houses--just white.

|Joan Tesche||Thank You|
Unfortunately, I don't believe this is my relative, but enjoyed your story. Sometimes I do believe our forefathers do try and help us in whatever way they can. Although, I don't recommend trying to contact the dead...really not something to do!! Thanks again.

I wrote yesterday about Find A Grave Memorial# 139444264 (Edward Leon Cooper). You may transfer it to me if you like. And thanks for creating it.
|L. William Yoder||Edward L Cooper|
In your recent posting for Ed you state you had no confirmation re his birth parents. I know their last name was Dellinger but don't know their first names. I think he was 11 or 12 when he was adopted.
I don't have a copy of his graduation photo -- in fact I don't think he had one taken. But he played baseball and basketball on the HS teams, and I will scan him in one of those photos to post. I was his classmate at EHS Class of '58.

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to get this photo for me. I very much appreciate it.

Thanks for taking this photo.

This is absolutely amazing and has "made my day". Allena still has a living son with whom I share family history information. I know he will appreciate your special efforts also. Cheers to you as you continue the search for other "lost" markers; I wish you much success.
|Sue Hale Sheppard||Allena Franklin #76460432|
What a most pleasant surprise that you have been able to fulfill my request for a photo of the grave marker for Allena Franklin #76460432.
I am curious to know if you had to literally unearth the marker. I am amazed that the marker has been preserved through 22 years of cemetery maintenance.
Cheers to you.
|Catherine Cramer||RE: Mamie Rittenhouse|
Thanks Sheila! The memorial for the three family members are in two separate cemetery listings, same stone, that's why I was wondering. So hard to figure out when you're not there in person :) Thanks for the update, I'll leave it to you to decide what needs to be done. Thanks again for the update!
|Catherine Cramer||Mamie Rittenhouse|
Same issues as William Rittenhouse. I think there is a confusion in cemetery names. These memorials were previously done in 2010 but under Freysville Cemetery.
