I just like cemeteries and leaving flowers. Thanks are not necessary. If you would like me to remove my token from your relative's memorial, you have only to ask. If you're in my friends list, you probably have a virtual cemetery I want to wander. I came here to find Rhonda Lou Jones, buried in Britt IA. She is one of the memorials in my virtual cemetery "missed." The first person entered in "missed" was Mary Helen Swope, whom I was dismayed to find here. Tiny cemetery with fewer than 100 people? I'm there! Cemetery in an odd place (traffic circle, parking lot, median strip)? Love it! Abandoned/neglected cemetery with headstones centuries out of date? Cool! Cemetery I would most like to participate in clean-up and restoration: Old Trinity Cemetery, in the awesomely-named Bone Gap, Edwards County, IL. I visit it on They wrote an article about it: "Nature Reclaims an Abandoned and Forgotten Cemetery," in 2010. Cemetery I most want to see in person: Saint Francis Assisi Cemetery in Brainerd, MN. It's located in Crow Wing State Park--how cool is that? I learned of its existence via Amy C. Rea's blog entry for May 9, 2012. Most disturbing cemetery pictures: with CemeteryTraveler's article "The Watery Remains of Monument Cemetery." Cemetery I want to see before it disappears completely: Orphans' Home Cemetery in Atchison, Kansas. How I want my remains disposed of: Take my ashes and those of my beloved pet, put us in a Bios Urn, and plant us on the site of my childhood home. Add violet & viola seeds. Put up a field stone (we have enough of them around), engraving optional. Let the Bios Urn tree, as it grows, engulf the stone. Carving tree trunk optional. Never dig me up again.

Katherine Ryan
Thank you for leaving a memorial on my aunts only grave site. Sad to think that she dying at 8 years old was left behind to be forgotten. Only a rare comment within my own families gatherings, I left her a find a grave site because there is nothing else left of her. No photos no grave marker and at this point all her 6 sisters are gone too. So at least from us we let her know she mattered and has been remembered. Cathy

RE: photo request for Amy
I'm sorry I couldn't help you with your request. Most people do no know that before 1966 the American Children Field was located in another spot of the cemertery and that those remains were removed.
I will be going back to the cemetery soon and then I will have another look just to really make sure.

Please remove any posts on John West Cunningham Find A Grave 119767928 site unless you have a direct connection.

Please do NOT inadvertently add anything to any Cunningham Find A Grave sites.

It creates confusion and makes others think there is a relative relationship, nothing personal.

William Williams
Hi AR,

I am writing about your request for William Williams at Glencoe/Sloan Cemetery in Emmons County, ND. I have walked through this cemetery several times and have never been able to find it. Also, here is a listing of the interments at that cemetery:

I have found this website to be very accurate. I would be glad to look somewhere else for you, but I haven't seen it there. There really aren't many trees to look in. I have found some headstones in bushes at other cemeteries, but not this one.

Thank you for the tribute you left for Robin Williams today. It's one of the most touching ones I've seen on his memorial in a long time.
