Bio and Links
Bio Photo To honor our passed relatives and friends with memorials on Find A Grave is a great way to reconnect with your families and make contacts with those "long lost" relatives. I feel that truely honoring a person is remembering their life, their passions and their loves and then sharing it with their families and others. This is my main purpose of being a member of Find A Grave. My personal goal is to get my family's direct line documented and "reconnected" as completely as possible. You can find my family descendant's names listed in my "virtual cemeteries".

I have documented many memorials in many cemeteries that are not my relatives. This is the way I "pay forward" the many family memorials that have been transferred to me. I preferentially reserve the transfer of these memorials to family members but have also transferred to others that share my philosophy and have convincing justification. If you find any memorials that are in YOUR direct line or are family members, please request each transfer through the edit tab on each memorial. Please include your name, FAG#, relationship (if any) and justification for the transfer. Finally, I am not a member of Find A Grave to build my memorial numbers, so please ask for transfers of your family members. Hopefully we can all get reconnected with our heritage as we reconnect our families.

George T. and Nancy Eliza Witt
Thank you for accepting the links that I gave for George T. and Nancy Eliza Witt. I have been trying to get all of the children of William H. Witt linked to their parents. Still lack 4.

I have sent an edit on Nancy Eliza's birth date. She died as an infant, so her birth year is going to be the same as her death year which is 1866. The stone is broken where the age part would be, but our family records show that she died as an infant.

Thanks for all your work on these cemeteries!

No, not a duplicate. The marker with his name only was probably provided by the Veterans Administration (government). Then when his wife passed away a year later, it is likely the family wanted his name included on her marker as well. Occasionally I see few like this, where there is two. It would have been better if I had taken a photo of both together, but next time I will know to do this.

Thank you for asking.

I linked Elizabeth to her parents, as you requested. She is not really my family - I do the same as you - add info to people I can in case it is helpful to them. If you are family of some sort, and would like to have her grave -- you just let me know. Thanks for what you do.
