Bio and Links
Bio Photo "We actually don't fear death. We fear that no one will notice our absence, that we will disappear without a trace". (unknown)
People come to Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. People volunteer on Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. Sadly, some are in a contest to see how many memorial pages they can put in, mistakes and all, and they hold tight to those pages they've created even if they aren't related to them at all…for them it's all about the numbers.
My friend, Melinda Fowler, and I started doing this for our own families and then it quickly became something bigger…it was about other people's families. We have gotten such satisfaction out of fulfilling requests and everyone is so grateful. But it is "we" who are grateful for the opportunity to honor your relatives. We're not in this for the count, but for the gratification in connecting relatives and for recognizing the need to say "I WAS HERE".
p.s. I take a lot of random pictures in the Danbury, CT and Westchester County, New York area. If I should happen to run into your family and you would like to take ownership, by all means let me know and it's done. Families should stay together!

RE: William Fanton
Many, many thanks, Linda, for going beyond the expected. William & his wife, Isabella Agnes Annable Fanton, had an interesting life. Isabellaʻs obit was saved by my great grandmother and it told how her husband was stationed at Fort Assiniboine and she was the first white woman to cross the Lonesome Prairie, Montana... she was even escorted on one trip by Sitting Bull and his warriors! Then they lived in Deadwood in its wildest days as a mining camp... Isabella is my 2nd great grand aunt... what a life!!!!

Mahalo hou....

Change of date
Linda, my error. Please change the date to February 12,2002 instead of February 13,2002. She passed away on the 12th,and the obituary was in The Newstimes on the 13th. Also the headstone says the 12th.Thanks again,Joyce

Linda, thank you for turning over this newly found family to me. I have found all the descendants! They were thrilled to know more of their lineage.
