PHOTOS: Any photo I have posted on Find-a-Grave is intended to be used...please consider this your permission to copy and/or post any of my photos.|
When I fulfill a photo request, I do not simply take a photo of the request only. I research the surname (and often connected surnames) within that particular cemetery and photograph them all when I go. And I will never, ever take just one photo within a lot. If the lot has more than one grave, they ALL get photographed since they will all be connected in some way. This allows a person to see photos of their entire family units, plus allows me to edit and link them all together when adding the photos.
DUPLICATES: I try my best to do a thorough check before entering any memorials. I will never intentionally create a duplicate, although sometimes it just happens with the delay in the Find-a-Grave system at times. Even if my memorial was entered first, I will usually delete IF the other memorial is complete.
My interest is not in numbers but in the precious souls who walked among us on this earth. However, I would appreciate your using "the Golden Rule" when asking me to delete a memorial. Most people already do and don't have to be reminded. Just want you to know that I will never intentionally be rude to anyone.
CORRECTIONS: I'll be happy to make corrections on any of my entries if needed, or I will gladly transfer memorials to family members (at my discretion when it involves my kinfolks). I would appreciate your using the "Edit" function to request corrections.
ABOUT ME: I have lived in Sweetwater, Texas all but four years of my life. A genealogy nut, I love to help people find their family information through this volunteer work.
FIND-A-GRAVE: I am the Find-A-Grave coordinator for the Nolan County Cemeteries. The Sweetwater Cemetery is my favorite (my daughter, father & grandparents are buried there).
MY FAMILIES: (just to name a few)
Cardwell * Hammond * Turner * Elam * Fry * Douglass
Hughes * Thomas * Lee * Beard * Willingham * Folmar
Free * Wyly * Bates * Stewart * Powell
Always interested in hearing from anyone with any connections to my families.
MY CEMETERY TIES: I have strong family ties to the following cemeteries:
* Sweetwater (Nolan County, TX)
* Old Bethel (Anderson County, TX)
* Frankston City (Anderson County, TX)
* Roby (Fisher County, TX)
* Rose Hill (Taylor County, TX)
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
By Thelma Greene Reagan
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Thanks! You're an angel.
|robertsgr2015||Old farmers' Cemetery|
Need help again. How do I find out where the Old Farmer Cemetery on F-A-G is actually located. The creator of the site, Searchers of our Past, has their messages disabled.
The problem is, I have located an old cemetery that the locals refer to as the Old Farmer Cemetery because 7 of the 10 memorials in it are for Farmer family members. Their OFC only contains 2 memorials, and they are not in the one I found.
How do I create a cemetery record for this OFC, it actually has no name on it's gate, without creating a duplicate cemetery record?
Thanks so much for your prompt response!!! Yes, I'll be sure to let you know if I learn they are correct...Carol

|Txjimdandy||RE: Frank Moore|
Not a problem. I am not into entering memorials on Find A Grave for the "numbers" as some are. I don't usually add to cemeteries that are out of my general area unless it is family or someone from Anson.
When I do enter in other cemeteries I look to see if someone is entering a lot in that cemetery which tells me they are trying to update the cemetery so I usually go ahead and transfer to that person.
Have a good day and may God bless
