Update 12 April 2013|
Hello. My home is in Bay City, MI. My principal interest is in 19th and early 20th century gravestone and grave site rescue - from both elements of nature, and from human scum who vandalize or damage stones, toss debris into cemeteries, or rescue from jerks who fail to perform their obligations as cemetery owners, managers, and operations staff. When these fail to do so, they become paid vandals, thus entering the cross-hairs of my webscope. Lest they think we don't notice, my personal website has a subsection for local and national cemetery scandals.
With regard to my website [ see the URL below ] commencing next week there will be a section, accessed from the left-sided navigation column, that tracks my participation upon Find-A-Grave. The stimulus for this change was rejection April 11, 2013 of a Virtual Flower that I left for the American author, Mary McCarthy. Her entry - Memorial #7316259 - was composed ten ears ago. See what you think of it.
Find-A-Grave has a legal right to apply a set of policies and judgments, and censor my contribution without explaining why. I have a corollary right to make Screen Shots of my photographs and text of my creation, and to post any material rejected by Find-A-Grave to my own website. Persons who subsequently view that material can decide whether they agree with the censors, or with me.
The 2013 season for making rescues of grave markers and grave sites is beginning. My participation on Find-A-Grave is reduced during those times of outdoor physical activity. I enjoy hearing from my online acquaintances, and can always be reached by email.

|Nancy Lindauer||RE: Edward Uhrich|
I'm having trouble finding Edward. Is he on F-A-G or on your website? I've looked in both places and cant seem to find him(Duh). Could you please let me know where he is?
I have a hard time understanding why someone would walk through a cemetery and destroy something so deliberately. Actually, I guess that it doesn't surprise me half so much as meeting a truly unselfish person like you, who goes SOOOOO far out of his way to take loving care of so many peoples' graves, and then to investigate their genealogy. WOW! It was truly my pleasure to meet you in person today and I am happy to have had the privilege to do your card for you.

|Cathy||RE: The King Family|
I don't think they have any contact. They don't know very much about this side of the family. I will ask though, and if I find someone in my travel through genealogy for this family I will ask them to contact you or the cemetery.

What a lovely photo!
|nancy robison||Clara Margeret Graham|
BTW, Clara was NOT Matilda's daughter, she was in fact Matilda's cousin, just as the 1900, 1910 census' says. Her parents were Lorenzo P and Edith Alberta Proper, she was born in South Norwich, Oxford, Ontario, Canada, on 27 Sept, 1896.
Her grandmother Susan Kalar was the sister of Matilda's mother.
After her mother died, Clara and her father immigrated to Michigan, where Lorenzo left his only living child with his widowed cousin Matilda.
I would suggest, before you label someone as the illegitimate daughter of someone, you look back and see if you can find actual birth records.
