|Bio and Links|
I inherited by interest in genealogy from my mother, Doris Sue Spence Fontaine (Memorial # 83062091). Growing up, a Sunday afternoon ride through the country usually included a cemetery visit which I affectionately call a cemetery hop.|
A few years ago I decided to make her handwritten or typed pages into an electronic format after encouragement from family and friends. In many instances, she left behind clues for me to follow in my adventures today.
You are welcome to use any of the photos that have been posted to the memorials. I would appreciate if you would kindly give me credit for my efforts when using them.
~ I'm the Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Granddaughter of Rev Jaques James Fontaine IV and Anne Elizabeth Boursiquot Fontaine, Huguenot Refugees from France who first settled in Devonshire & later in Ireland. It was his dying wish that all members of his family remain close through the ages and to aid one another in times of strife. From his wishes was formed The Fontaine-Maury Society which today is an active thriving organization whose mission is to strengthen the family bonds of the Fontaine and Maury families.

Thank you for her obituary and burial info. Hopefully, someone can now find her gravestone and her husband's gravestone so a photo can be posted to Find A Grave.

After entering this grave of Harry and Maude gearing, I did an ancestry search and found your entry with burial location unknown. So, I thought you might want to know about this. Is it the same person? Are you related? I am not... Let me know what you would like me to do, i.e. transfer to you, delete, etc.
All the best, -Hal

I took photos of what appear to be this couple in Greenwood Cemetery, Bedford VA resting not far from their son Wyndell Grimsley Halsey # 138762811.
Their dates are June 20, 1876, Dec 11, 1974 for Cebert # 138762963
and Oct 27, 1886, Nov 25, 1976 for Eva # 138762946.
If these dates match the records in question they should be moved to Greenwood Cemetery.
|Marcia Lynne vonGunden||Thank you again|
Thank you as always for you continuing help with "gathering my nuts"
Your recent transfer of:
Richard Dale Green # 96619068
is very much appreciated.
Now we just need to delete:
Ralph Gale Green # 96619097
and all is well.

I was notified that William Carr Allen and wife, Susan Sayers Morris Allen, are actually buried in the Millirons and Allen Families Cemetery in Pulaski, Va. These were created by the late Becky Sowers. There are already memorials for William and Susan Allen in that cemetery so Becky's are now duplicates. Please move your image of William and Susan's marriage certificate to the existing memorials in the Millirons and Allen Cemetery and I will delete the old ones. Thanks for all you do for Find a Grave!

How have you solved the mystery? The tombstone is in Maple Park Cemetery, but another family member shes was moved to Monte Vista. The cemetery no longer has any records.
Hi! I see you have a photo request for Cedar Hill Cemetery in Suitland Maryland. I'm taking a trip there soon and I'm planning on trying to fulfill as many requests as I can. Since this cemetery is so large (about 80,000 graves) it would help to have the section and plots of the burials. I have spoken to Carmelita Walker from CHC. She said she can't give locations of these sites to me since I'm not related but she said if you call her at 301-568-5400 & tell her that you're a relative (or think you may be!) she can give it to you. She said there's no charge for this information. If you could get the info soon (by 9/6) that would be great! If you are no longer interested in fulfilling the request for whatever reason, just let me know too so I can cross it off my list. Thanks!

Much thanks for posting the photo of the marker for Rickie Davis. Rickie was a special child much loved by his foster parents, Thomas and Mary Brunk, who are my great uncle and aunt. The report I have is that Rickie is buried beside Uncle Thomas. Thanks again and may God bless you!

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! I am so appreciative of your finding his gravesite! If you don't mind me asking, you didn't happen to notice a stone for his wife Jane there beside him by any chance did you?
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND EFFORT. KNOW THAT YOUR HELP IS SO VERY MUCH APPRECIATED:
