<-- My sons, Sean and Eric, and myself, several years ago.|
The older you get, the more deaths it seems, or maybe I was just too young to know the difference. I wanted something to memorialize members of my family and friends.
For all those that took my pictures and used them on Ancestry, it would have been nice for anyone of you to say "Hey, I used your picture on my family tree!" I would have replied with something like "Lets see how we are related!"
Discovering who your ancestors are is one thing, but reading about them even if its just an obituary tells you something about them as a person, not just another leaf in the tree. Seeing their final resting place is a type of closure for me.
I'm looking for any information on Scovill, Hill, Gear, Parlett, Lawton, Shields, Weilbacher, Frierdich, Murrah.
Please don't add any music to my interments. If you have a picture for one of my memorials you'd like to add, go ahead, but please let me know so I can see it! Thanks!
If I've left flowers on a memorial, that doesnt mean that I know them. It could be that I was flowering random names, or I got there by following links from other memorials. I've flowered over 20,000 memorials, and I probably only knew a very small percentage of those people.
This was posted in the forums, and I think it pretty much sums up how most of us feel about graving and looking for our ancestors.
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spread out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Hi, Sherry: I do not have a contact for this cemetery. You might try contacting the people at this website as they are in Bates County http://www.cemetery.poplarheightsfarm.org/html/rider.html

I took the photo of Alma O'Farrell's stone on Friday while I was in the area looking for some of my relatives and posted it today. I also phtographed Jim O'Farrell, her husband, along with Ira and Genevieve O'Farrell (don't know if they are related) and posted them also. Please feel free to use the photos in any way you please.

|Marlene Smith||RE: Lon and Ruby Slinkard|
I didn't know how to transfer my mistakes so I deleted and added them this morning to the correct cemetery. If you have the time, I would be interested to know how to change a cemetery name. Write me at my e-mail account, please. I feel so much better to have this done right.
|Marlene Smith||Lon Slinkard|
Thank you for finding this terrible error that I made with a simple typo. I will correct this right away. The cemetery for this grave is MARBLE HILL CEMETERY in Bollinger County, MO. because I only take photos in my local area. I hope I'm more careful with making memorials now than I was when I joined less than two years ago. I have deleted the memorial with the wrong information. Thanks again.
"...no Mable Hill cemetery in Kansas City, Jackson County, but there is a Maple Hill in Kansas City, Wyandotte County, Kansas."
Thank you so much for the correction. I really appreciate this!
Off to fix it now.

I found Hulda in 1900 and 1910 (listed as Fannie)census with the three children. I have linked them all together now. She was the second wife of Augustus.
