Bio and Links
Bio Photo I took over after my Aunt Geraldine Martinez passed. This is all new to me but I have become addicted in finding where my family members rest. No one should be forgotten.

I was born in Alexandria, Virginia and now resides in Florida.

I am researching, on my fathers side of the family, Rhodes, Walters, Wright & Brockman in Virginia. On my mothers side, Lytle, Channing, Hayden & Moore in Pennsylvania. And for my Grandchildren, Greene, Caudill. Hutchinson & Vallance's in Kentucky.

I have noticed that I am not the only one impatient with the tokens coming up and I end up with two. I found that if you click on the flowers it will take you to a link to delete the extra one. =)

I have also found a link to calculate birth dates, so when you only have a date of death & the headstone gives you their years it will give you the date of birth.

I have met the most wonderful people with Find-a-Grave. What a great family we have here. Thank you all for doing what you do.

Everyone has been so generous with their photos that I would like to reciprocate. You may use my photos in you family trees. All I ask is for a thank you and recognition from whom you got them.

Happy Hunting =)

Strangers in the Box

By Pamela A. Harazim

Come, look with me inside this drawer,
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, serene.
I wish I knew the people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories
Are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like.
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time
To tell who, what, where, when,
These faces of my heritage
Would come to life again.
Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories
Someday to be tossed away?
Make time to save your pictures,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.

RE: William Dull 41848346
You are so welcome, and I'm glad I contacted you and that the information is correct, as I wasn't 100% certain. Please go ahead and create the memorial to him. I found his death certificate online at Thanks for letting me know so soon!

William Dull 41848346
Melva, there is a William Henry Dull buried in Greenlawn Cemetery in Allen County, Ohio, with DOB 3/24/58 Mercer Co., DOD 5/21/1924 Allen Co., OH. He does not have a Find-A-Grave memorial yet in Greenlawn Cemetery but his death certificates states that is where he is buried. I believe it to be a daughter, Grace Myrtle Dull Crisenbery, buried also in that cemetery, who does have a Find A Grave memorial. If your records indicate he has a daughter named Grace, 1st wife Flora and 2nd wife Clara, this could be the William Henry Dull that you are looking for. My apologies if it is not. Thanks.

William Henry Dull
We were yesterday at Riverside Cemetery in Rockford, Ohio. The care taker there is a very nice chap and he looked in not only Riverside Cemetery records but in all the cemeteries in Dublin Township. I'm sorry to tell you, William Henry Dull does not appear in any of the cemeteries. There is however, in the Mt. Olive Cemetery his parents, Josiah and Mary. Also in the same cemetery there is this record in the Dublin Enscription Book which follows: "DULL, Floire w/o Wm. H. Feb ? , 1884 25-1-7." (The last 3 numbers mean 25 years, 1 month and 7 days. I believe I can say that William Henry Dull with certainty, is not buried at Riverside.

Your two requests for photos
I believe the Murphey Cemetery you are looking for may be one of the 41 on Fort Gordon. Images of photos from cemeteries found on Fort Gordon can be obtained easily by contacting Renee Lewis 706-791-2403. She was even willing to take me to a grave at the Newman location, (which is in a guarded area. There are 41 Cemeteries on the Fort but many are in Hazardous locations. She keeps a book of all the wonderful photos she has taken however.

RE: Hello

Peerson & Martha (Dean) Fazenbaker are in a different line of the family. I found mention of them in the Fazenbaker book written by Walter Warnick.

RE: Hello

So glad you got a photo! I looked ALL OVER and never found it, but when I saw the photo I realized I walked by it twice!! LOL!!

I do admit that it was SSSSOOOOOOOO COLD that day last December and the wind went right through me, it was hard to concentrate!! I am just sorry I never found it but snow and wind that day made it really hard! I am from Louisiana and live in Georgia so am NOT used to THAT kind of bitter cold LOL!(my husband is from Mercer County, Ohio and my Father-in-law is buried out at there at Mendon along with many others from his family so I am there 2-3 times a year). So I never mind looking for photo requests when I am taking my mother-in-law out there. I didn't mind it a bit, so if you have any other relatives out there and need pics, don't hesitate asking me!! :D

Jo, This is a link that connects Wegman and Jerome Pletcher. Multiple marriages, illegitimacies, I don't really know the final answer.

Re: Hannah Alden
I did not add either of these sons that have same dates and same wife. This may be an error and I have no way of changing this from the memorial. Only those who added the children's info can change their own information.Thank you for trying to help. sincerely, kcv
