Bio and Links
Bio Photo About death certificates and other documents - I ask politely that you PLEASE don't post any DC's or other documents to my memorials. I like to honor their life and history. My humble opinion is that their death is a personal/private matter for not only the deceased but also the family/descendents. I do welcome any photos of the individual so we can see them when alive. I appreciate your honoring my preference.

About photos, if another contributor has posted gravestone photos to one of my memorials, please do not post any duplicates. thank you for that!

The Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you'd have them do unto you"
Please don't create duplicates when you know another memorial was created first. If there is an error in cemetery or info, be courteous and contact the original contributor. You'd want that gesture offered to you too.

We are ALL part of this magnificant GIANT historical jigsaw puzzle!

I always have and still do love puzzles. And I have been bitten by the genealogy research bug for years! Better than fiction!

I am NOT involved with findagrave for the numbers. I research every person for whom I create a memorial for accuracy and in an attempt to include as much information as possible.

Whenever possible, I also try to link family members. I feel that is most important and a way to have them all 'reunited.'

This is a marvelous venue to not only recognize, remember and HONOR those who have passed before us, but also to assist families in the future in finding their ancestors and hopefully even seeing a photo of their headstone.

My sincere thanks to all findagrave contributors and photographers for all you have done for me and the entire findagrave community! It takes a village!

For the MOST part, the cooperation and sharing on this site are tremendous and heart-warming.

A special thanks to contributor peace4me- she is a prolific and wonderful photo contributor and a super nice person to work with! She is incredible with photos in Wheeling West Virginia and beyond!

Remember: be kind to one another!

RE: Margaret Murphy Smith edit
I think I do have some additional info on Margaret Murphy. It took me a long time to figure out who her parents were, but I finally noticed that in one of the Censes Enoch U Smith's family was listed very close to an elderly couple, James & Mary Murphy. Later I found a probate record for James Murphy that verified that he was her father. See if this link works:,268569301#
If it doesn't, I found it in the York Co Orphans Court Dockets vol AA pg 47.

And now, I also have a question for you, which is, how do know Margaret Murphy Smith is at Bethel? Have you seen the stone or do you know through some other way? The reason I ask is because I've been there and haven't seen it yet myself. Is the stone still identifyable or has it been broken or weathered like many of the other stones at the cemetery?

RE: Mountain Home Cemetery
I live about 500 miles from Mountain Home cem. I will be visiting the parents in July and they are about 20 miles away. I will check on Chase. Back in 2012 I took pictures of all the tombstone and posted on FGA. I could have missed some.

There are some Chase family buried in Linwood and new liberty cem all in Greene Co, AR.

RE: Greenwald edit

No worries, I know what happened: "it was a dark and stormy night, despite which, as night wore on, every householder, one by one, nodded off to sleep, except for the solitary, obsessive, bleary-eyed genealogical researcher laboring behind a desk, in the dim glow of a plasma screen, trying to make his/her way through the labyrinth of intersecting family trees, while jumping between seven open tabs on the infernal computer's browser."

RE: you find them!
Thank you!!! Yes, I always have my trusty little shovel with me, but many stones have sunken in the ground to far or have fallen over face down so it is hard to do anything about them. Carla :)

RE: Isaiah Tucker stone photo
Hi, I'm sure if there had been anything on the other side I would have seen it and photographed it as well. I'll be back over that way when the weather improves. It's a very, very old cemetery and I've unburied several stones there that had been grown over. I plan to go back and see what else I can find. I'll try to find her.
