Questions regarding any of my memorials? Please EMAIL me directly, not here in the public domain.
Please feel free to use my photos, for personal use only. Contact me for permission if you'd like to use my work for profit. It's been my pleasure to take photos and share them, so that it help those who cannot travel. I have taken many pictures of headstones and put them on FAG. I'm still adding pictures as I go through them and contribute info, when I have time. It's an ongoing project! I also create memorials along the way.
A BIG thank you to ALL memorial creators, photographers, and info contributors who take the time and effort to make this project a huge success. It's really the collaborative effort that we all work together to make this Findagrave possible. It's my hope our efforts help others in their research and tear down their brickwalls.
I trim my messages to keep it under control and only leave those that I need to do something about. I'm using the messages to my advantage.
Like everyone else, I enjoy receiving notes of appreciation! I try to thank everyone too for their efforts, but please do not feel offended if I am delayed for some reason or overlook some. I sometimes have found FAG emails in the spam folder. If you don't get a response in a timely manner, PLEASE leave a brief note on public message to alert me of possible spammed email and I will check. I REALLY do appreciate ALL of you who are helping making Findagrave such a great website.
I've always had passion in genealogy and history since I was a young teenager. Now with more resources online and more time, I'm working on it again. I also work with my genealogist aunt who has been at it for over 70 years and is still doing it.
I have very deep roots in New England on both sides of my tree, especially in CT and MA, most immigrated in 1600s from England. My German ancestors immigrated just before Revolutionary War and a few others came to Michigan between 1840 and 1875. I also have some Dutch ancestry originating in New Amsterdam, a few French Huguenots, some Irish and Scottish, and some others. It has been a fascinating journey discovering and learning so much more about my family, their migrations westward, and local history along the way. I have found that Findagrave has been an extremely valuable tool, a great asset in my research.

2) RILEY Genealogy in America - all Riley descendants for all branches are welcome
3) www.phelpsdna.com - we now know there are about 17 unrelated Phelps branches!
4) www.FTDNA.com - it is the best source for DNA testing and also has the largest and well-established database. I urge those who have roots in Colonial New England have their living male relatives who carry the surname Phelps, Riley, Reed, Howe, Avery, Trowbridge, Eaton, Jackson, Kellogg, Mason, and many more - to test their DNA - we need help to establish and confirm the surname branches. Please email me for more info.

Hello, I checked the cemetery today for Kittie Parker, but unfortunately could not find her headstone. There were several large headstones probably where hers should be that had fallen or been knocked over, and one of these may be hers. According to the index for this cemetery, her date of internment was 1/1/1900. So sorry I could not photograph it for you.

After I got back from the cemetery and logged into F.A.G., I notice several other Knott gravestones are not on their memorial pages. I will return one day and get those that are missing.
Thanks for all of the notes regarding Southerland family members at Southerland Cemtery.I was able to confirm and add most of that info.However,you may wish to submit supporting evidence for the info regarding Joseph Southerland and Martha Ferguson Southerland.If so,I will be happy to review it.
If you have corrections or additional info please send it via SAC and I will be happy to review it.

I said I couldn't find any stone for Jacob Wambsganz in section 15 lot 1497, then I remembered that I did take a photo of an unreadable stone in that lot.
|Shawdau||RE: Persis Randolph|
I've been working on the Copp stones in Canada and a wonderful lady there has been getting pictures for me. An elderly descendant of the family who has now died gave me his notes on where people were buried and no one else had created memorials for them so I gave it a try. I had to set up a whole cemetery that hadn't been listed before on Find A Grave for some of them.
I did the memorials for the Schramms for the same reason. No one else had done them, then I stumbled across their graves, all together at Aspen Grove, one day. I know you'll take care of Persis. I hope to get back to Aspen Grove this fall and get pictures of some of the stones I'm still missing.

I'm glad Persis found her family to take care of her. I'm a Copp, so I know a little about the family, but not as much as your uncle would know!

You are very welcome. Glad I could help :). Paul proctor was in a different section than the rest of them. Don't know if that means anything but I know any info helps.
