The last few days I have been visiting the National September 11 Memorial here on Find A Grave, leaving flowers and just remembering...It's shocking to see several of the memorials have only 4-5 "Notes/ flowers" left on their memorial. Please take a few minutes and visit this page and leave some Love for these people, Thanks|
I spend most of my free time working on my Family history and find roaming old cemeteries is amazing. I create the memorials to go with the pictures and will gladly transfer the memorial to a family member unless the person is a member of my family. 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 what they are seeking.

Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on. Cherished memories will never fade, because one 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.

Thanks for your work!
|Dianna Taylor||RE: Clinton Seymour|
Thank you so much for the photos, I requested an edit on Clinton's date of death, thanks for pointing that out. and a big thanks for the photo and memorial of Clinton,s son Clinton, his mother is Georgia, someone else made a memorial for him at another cemetery, I will notify them of the mistake.
These are distant cousins, if you wish to transfer the memorial I'm always honored to maintain them but that's up to you, my main goal is to connect my kinfolk and make it easier for others who are searching.
|Sue Armstrong||RE: William Dodd|
Thank you, just added his death certificate showing the July 1939 death date. The engraver must have messed up. I have found this has happened before when engraving markers. Thank you also for adding Claude Dodd, if I find the connections will advise you. Happy holidays - Sue Armstrong

Hey-They really are spectacular. Here they are referred to as Villes de la mort (Cities of the Dead).The great thing about them is they're family owned and still used today.I don't suggest you come in the summer, though. It gets to be around 100 degrees with 100% humidity (ya' know it's not the heat, it's the humidity that'll get ya'!)Most of them are safe and lots are on guided tours, it's just the little ones that are tucked back in already dangerous neighborhoods (you know, the ones you'd never go thru anyway).St. Joseph's is on City Park Avenue so it shouldn't be a problem. But problem is these cemeteries are enormous, each aisle is actually called a street, has a named street sign and an address. Unless you have the address of the crypt, you could spend all day looking for a name. I suggest you try calling St. Joseph's @ 504-488-5200 or 504-488-4989 for help finding it. Good Luck!

I am happy to transfer Mr. Lawrence to you. Glad you found him. The records here are actually exceedingly good (considering). Many of the cemeteries are owned and maintained by the archdiocese. They kept excellent records but are not willing to give anyone access to them unless you can prove you are a direct relative. As it is now, they consider these cemeteries private property. The records for Mr. Lawrence are from the Louisiana Death Index Public Health Records at the Orleans Parish Public Library. They will not send records. You must go to the library and copy them.I would offer to get you a picture of his grave but, as is often the case here, these very old cemeteries, dating back to the 1700's, originally were on the outskirts of town. As the city grew around them, they now lay in the absolutely worst and impoverished parts of the city, have high brick walls around then are can be very dangerous. I'm sure, though, that if you put in a photo request, some kind sole will take the challenge. I hope this was of some help.

She was part of a cemetery list...good luck with finding records for someone who died so long ago (your 3rd g-grandfather)...maybe a Will somewhere...

I have added the links to John Halsells page just as you asked if he or his wife are family to you and you would like for me to transfer them to you just let me know.

I don't know what happened to the SACs, maybe they somehow ended up in my spam folder or otherwise got lost. I did add the links.

Hi. I have checked all my sources and could not find where Jessie Franklin Long was buried in Sabine Parish but could not find anything. I was going to suggest Nelda Click (#47544561) but I see you have contacted her already. She's my go-to person for Sabine Parish information. Hopefully she'll be better help.
