"The best way of preserving the ancestry is by bringing the descendants together." unk
I found this site by chance while doing some genealogy searches on my family history. I am going to attempt to add all my ancestors graves to the site, if they can be found! I should have started years ago before all the "old" folks pasted. Great site, thanks to whoever started this!
I want to thank everyone who visits the memorials of my family, friends or just people who tug at my heart. It really means a lot to me for people to take their valuable time and pay homage. I would like to thank everyone personally but this endeavor of mine has grown so much. What started out to just be a way to find and honor my relatives and ancestors has snowballed into a second job almost. Thank you again with all my heart, my new find a grave family are such caring and wonderful people. God is holding a special place for all of you. I love you all!!
Let me add a PS, my pet peeve is the selfish people on here who refuse to transfer family members to family members. How dare you tell me to send you any bio info or family connections and you will make them for me, wrong! I don't need a secretary. I am constantly revising and updating the memorial sites for my family as I uncover new info and don't get me wrong, I truly appreciate the time and effort people put into surveying cemeteries and posting pics. But this person had never been to this cemetery, let alone his grave. She picked his name out of a book and devised a memorial on him for her virtual cemetery, and showed no more interest in him until I posted a picture of his grave site and personal pictures to the site and asked her to transfer him to me so I could do a bio on him. Now you tell me how someone who has posted over 10,000 memorials can be so attached to my dead relative. If she ever reads this she will know this is about her and if you have ever dealt with her you know who she is. She is a nut, who needs a life and a new hobby!!
I also want to send a SHOUT OUT to all the wonderful cemetery surveyors who unselfishly spend their time and energy surveying cemeteries and posting memorials and making it possible for family members to find and connect to lost relatives, ancestors, friends and love ones. It is quite an ordeal posting memorials and pictures not counting roaming around amongst the dead and keeping all the info straight. The majority of y'all are wonderful people and your work is truly appreciated by many. I especially want to thank Richard Robinson and Mary Ann Ferguson who have uncovered many of my ancestors graves that would still be unknown to me if not for their hard work. If I have posted any memorials for your family and they are not mine I will gladly transfer regardless of the generation gap. Take care and keep up the good work, love to all of you and thanks again!!!! I am a saddened to learn of the passing of Mary Ann. Find A Grave Memorial# 104968834

Just to say Hi I stumbled across the photo you posted of Martha E. Tumblin Crowe (I was looking for Martha Tumblin in the hopes that this was her - it's not). I thought the photo was so very lovely that I had to leave her a flower. Then out of curiosity, I read your profile and had to laugh and shake my head because I too have run into a few here who have been unkind and a bit rude, so I know how you feel. There's never any reason to be unkind here because we never know what the other person may be going through. Anyway, you keep up the great work you're doing for your ancestors. I know somewhere in the vast beyond they must be happy you're remembering them and keeping them alive, at least here at Find-A-Grave and in your heart.
Indian Creek I don't know if the church has any records, will have to contact them if I can find out how. Don't see a Suzy Smith, maybe you know another name she went by? A lot of unmarked in Carroll County and a lot of funeral home markers still with names. It looks like the wife died first, the husband married again, so the 1st wife got no marker. Then the husband was buried with the 2nd wife on double marker. Found a few that 1st & 2nd was on marker with husband. I have tried to up date all cemeteries from the book, takes a while. I find a lot of kids not added so I have added them. Don Sharp lives there and knows where all the cemeteries are. Maybe he can help you, he likes research. If I can help more, let me know...Ed
Sara Watts pictures No Kay, it's not necessary. I don't know what happened to them either. I do have a request if you can/will. I would like to have the GPS coordinates of the grave yard. I've tried to find it on Google earth and can't for sure locate it. Thanks for all you do.
middleton fain ( Milton ) The memorial was made in 2005 and at that time You made the memorial as it was on the tombstone. The tombstone is readable as You can see from the photo on My memorial. The little tag with the name Milton was made after the memorial was made. He was married to Syntha and buried next to her. A Grand Daughter was the person who told Me You had made a duplicate of Mr. Fain. She could read the old memorial.
