Bio and Links
Bio Photo It doesn't really matter what one puts in the bio section because 99% of the time, no one bothers to read it anyhow!! :D

But for the record,

I am pretty liberal with my transfers,

The majority of my memorials are made with 2nd hand information so please feel free to send me corrections (as long as they make sense that is),

Cite the source and I will add obituaries (but I will edit out living relatives if it is a recent death),


I don't mind checking to see if there is more information on said person at the local library (depends on where the funeral took place)...within reason...I have my own family to chase down (living and otherwise!).

RE: James Murray
Hi Tori,
I am definitely fishing to see if James is there and will delete his memorial if he isn't on her memorial. Logic tells me since she lived all over with her children since his death in 1877, that she went BACK to Illinois to be buried with her husband. She also has a son who died in PA who is buried in that cemetery. Thanks for your help. Jill MacRae

RE: Manerva Adcox
I added the photos. Curious about the spelling of the last name - did it get changed from one generation to the next? I know that happens.

I needed to get out and walking after this horid winter. My family cemeteries are too far away, so I kind of adopted Oakland and Rosedale, since it's only a few blocks from my house. I've been trying to get as many photographed as have memorials.

I have corresponded with some very interesting people along the way. Lots of history in Oakland.

RE: Manerva Adcox
Thanks Tori! I also found James Robert Adcock 1863-1934 and Charlotte A. Adcock 1854-1946 in the same family plot. I assume siblings of Manerva. If you want to add them, I'll add photos.

Thanks for all the work you do on find a grave!

RE: Memorial# 93449638
Hi Tory,
Before you do any research can you contact me thru my private email?

I want to explain some of the mystery and how it is being slowing solved.

Memorial# 93449638
Hi Tori,
I have a question on Memorial #93449638, Sarah E. Thomas. She was born 19 Dec 1885 died 15 Apr 1895.

I can see the initials J. R. & ??
J. R. would be James Riles Thomas.
?? could be the Harriet Jane Goodwin Thomas that I told you to connect to Sarah.

However, a MC for James & Harriet that I obtained recently has them getting married in 1892. That means he was still married to his first wife, Emma S. Lefter Thomas in 1885.

When you took that photo were you able to make out any of the lettering that would be the wife's initials?

I have been untangling this family one small step and a time.

Don't change any information until we know what it says after the "J. R. &".

Tori, what a beautiful stone that Sam has. Thank you for taking this photo and posting the memorial. I wasn't certain when he was moved from Ohio (after his death) exactly where he was buried.
