Bio Photo If you need edits to a memorial I have created:
*************************PER FAG!!!!********************************

and then please use the "EDIT" tab. It has been said that "Genealogy without documentation is mythology." (THANK YOU SUSAN!!) For those of you who don't care enough about accuracy to submit proof to back up your edit, don't be surprised if your edit is declined.

It never ceases to amaze me how many people visit or create memorials for deceased people but balk at having a picture of a piece of paper that says someone has died.....?? Just saying!

I started doing research on my family tree around 1995 with my grandmother Dennis. We spent many hours together researching, walking cemeteries, looking at family photos, and sharing memories as well as making even more. She was a special person to me and I like to think I got some of my traits from her.

As of February 2016 I am currently uploading pictures of all the graves in Seaford Odd Fellows Cemetery. After I enter everything entered I will go back and check for duplicates and any other problems. Thanks!

My favorite epitaphs:

Marion Michael Morrison (John Wayne):

Today is the most important thing in life
Comes into us at midnight very clean
It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands,
It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

Godfrey Beamguard:

Adieu all both far and near, my loving wife and children, For my immortal soul has fled, I now lie numbered with the dead. Remember friends as you pass by, As you are now, so once was I, As I am now, so you must be, Prepare for death and follow me."

Didn't see your last note until now. Glad you could laugh at yourself, Laura! I understand and believe me, I create plenty of those occasions for myself, too. :o) Thanks again for allowing me to copy your nice photo.

Thank you very much, Laura; I appreciate your generosity and all the kind work you do. I created & manage the memorial for her so no need to transfer, but thanks for thinking of and offering that. :o)

Hello Laura, I'm wondering if I might please copy your headstone photo from the memorial above for our private family tree? She was a cherished relative. Thank you very much for taking the photo and considering this request.

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

RE: Tull pic
Happy Almost-Thanksgiving to you, as well! I looked carefully at the newspaper picture you posted in the Mary Elizabeth "Abbey" Tull memorial, and to my eyes the Elizabeth Tull in that picture doesn't at all look like the person I knew; I don't think the face looks like the same person. That's not to say, 100% conclusively, that there's no possibility that it's her. But, in my opinion, I very seriously doubt it's her, and feel 97.5% confident that it's not, as the facial type doesn't look anything like the Abbey Tull I knew. And, meanwhile, Abbey NEVER went by Elizabeth, as far as I know, and was solely known by everyone as Abbey, and only officially was Mary Elizabeth. So I think that if that was Abbey in the newspaper picture that she'd have near certainly been identified as Mrs. Abbey Tull, rather than as Mrs. Elizabeth Tull, in the caption.

RE: Charles Wollaston Edit
Charles is my Springer 5th cousin 1 time removed. I downloaded a marriage record from Ancestry that has his parents as Albert and Lizzie. I'll attach it as an image to his memorial. Once you confirm the connection, I will delete if from the memorial. Thanks
