Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sheri and I am a genealogist, thus the nickname "Gen-Sher" because I like sharing my genealogy knowledge.

Find a Grave in creating little miracles everyday by connecting the living with their ancestors, relatives and friends. I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES.

By adding cemetery memorials to Find a Grave, I am trying to add correct birth and death information, including places, parents, spouse and children (and photos when possible). Sometimes the stone just has the years (i.e. 1876-1947). If I can find the birth and death dates on Ancestry, I like to add that information, too. I also try to find obituaries, then add links to other family members.

In placing obituaries on the memorials, I am attempting to provide families and researchers with additional information on the individual. Obituaries published in newspapers are in the public domain and as such, anyone can legally post an obituary and its photo. There are no copyrights unless noted in the obituary. I hope I don't offend anyone. If I do, I am sorry and will gladly delete information.

If you find mistakes on a memorial, please let me know by telling me in "Edit" on that memorial. I will gladly correct mistakes.

If you'd like to manage a memorial I posted, please let me know by asking under "Edit" on that memorial. I will transfer to any relative or friend, unless the memorial is for one of my own relatives.

I have always found cemeteries a place of serenity and meditation, away from the busyness of the everyday world. To me they are very sacred, as the lives of those buried there are sacred.

By sharing information of those who have "gone before", we are honoring their lives. Some people live and die without any fanfare. This site gives the dead their "Notice".

RE: William Sterling
Sheri, I would love that! Thank you so much. I have a lot of info on this family line and plan to meet the Cape Charles archivist in a couple weeks to go through their archives for more old pics and history on the Sterling bros. I discovered an error in the Littleton Heritage related to this line, if you can believe it. William H. Sterling B-127 is the son of John Nelson Sterling, not Aaron. So many William H. Sterlings, and these Sterlings moved away and were lost from collective memory in later years. Anyway, I'm grateful to have found them! Thanks for your memorials and your consideration. Valerie

P.S. I'll request a transfer from the memorial itself to make it easier.

William H. Sterling #81532529
Hi, I sent links for William H. Sterling of Crisfield, MD buried in the Cape Charles Cemetery, Cape Charles, VA. They're for his parents and are based on his VA death record and his parents' obits. I'm going to run over to the ESPL and see if I can find his obit as well. I'll send it to you. There are two other Sterling brothers buried here as well, but I need to get the proof together for you. You wouldn't believe how many William H. Sterlings there are in Crisfield. It's nice to have some records to finally make the family connections. Valerie
