Bio Photo WARNING!! To ANYONE I come across that is using this Find A Grave site for nefarious purposes.. YOU WILL BE EXPOSED.. This includes those of you who post sick & twisted descriptions of how the person died, those of you who are posting & exchanging photos of supposedly dead children or of actually dead people to be used in fraudulent ways, those of you who have EVIL INTENTIONS to manipulate the emotions of the public & those of you who interfere with the intentions of the good people on this site.. WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!

I know there are many others who suspect what is going on with these people and if the administrators of Find A Grave won't do anything to stop this.. WE MUST POLICE THIS SITE & ROOT THESE PEOPLE OUT OURSELVES.. so if you come across a memorial containing something strange please contact me..

and remember.. all that evil needs to succeed is that GOOD MEN DO NOTHING.. so now that I've gotten that out of the way.. I want to say that..

Being a Find A Grave photo contributor is the most rewarding & constructive hobby I've ever taken up.. You have my consent to use any of the headstone or plot photos that I've loaded to memorials.. If I've created a memorial for a family member or friend of yours, I'm more than willing to transfer them to you.. I'm not looking to own high numbers of memorials, my intentions as a contributor are.. first.. to help document the cemeteries.. and secondly.. to help family members find their ancestors more easily.. So even if you don't necessarily fit the Find A Grave 'guidelines' for requesting a transfer, don't let that deter you from asking.. My feelings are that if you've taken the time to contact me with a correction or addition to a memorial, then you qualify...

I also want to give special mention to my Find A Grave friend, Kris Daugherty/OSU1988. Kris has been a tremendous help to me by providing me with cemetery records for Williams County. These records have enabled me to add my photos to memorials with confidence. As many of you know, sometimes we encounter stones that have been so worn down by time and weather that they are unreadable. Her records allow me the ability to cross check the photos with placement of the graves and to identify those unreadable stones. THANK YOU KRIS!!!

Also, I came across this poem on another contributor's profile and it perfectly conveys my thoughts and feelings as I walk the cemeteries.. so with his permission I've borrowed it from his page and here it is..

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

RE: another Reynolds child
So sorry to take so long to reply. I haven't looked for messages here. Ha. Anyway thanks again. My sister and I need to go back sometime with a prod. We think there is another headstone there for a child named Edna Reynolds.
Thanks again for your help.

Eliza A Shimer date of death.
Hi Sandi: Date of birth and death corrected as requested. NJ records report death date as 19 Jan 1889, but 73 years 11 months from Feb of 1816 would be Jan of 1890, not 1889. Interesting, but not the first time I've seen a year difference. Neither Ancestry nor Familysearch provide images of original records, so we'll have to assume the stone is correct. I plan to re-photograph to get--one hopes--better clarity on the dates. Thanks for reporting the error. If you're related to the Shimers, I will be pleased to transfer to you.
Best Regards,
Steve Orso

Sandi,
Daniel Spangenberg (married to Sarah Shimer) is the grandson of Johannes Ernst Spangenberg-the Bible Artist. So that is your connection! Hope this helps you some.
