|Bio and Links|
Family is important whether you knew them or not. They influenced your life. I find many "traditions" a little piece of each member.|
I enjoy genealogical puzzles. I enjoy finding living people to reconnect especially adoptions.
My greatest struggle is researching, assembling information, uploading, then have a person "merge" a cemetery or duplicates. I put the info in the first dated entry per F-A-G rules. Then it is gone. What takes hours and hours to research and upload is disregarded by one click- delete. Be careful in your expectations
Walking through the cemeteries gives me a "feeling" of the times. I am not a psychic or "into" talking to the other side. However,on a few occasions I will walk past a grave; and "hear; 'I wish my family would find me' ".
I take the name, research until I find a relative and ask for the family historian. With that 9/10 times someone is looking for the grave. WOW not often; enough to keep me going.
TALKING ABOUT ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE
Recently, I stepped forward towards a monument to take a picture as a volunteer. At that point, the ground gave way. My leg went in the ground at an angle next to the monument and under. Since I had no phone service only 911, I tried for almost an hour to wiggle free. Finally I gave in; called 911, to call my husband, to bring a shovel. Instead I had a fire ladder truck, rescue squad, paramedics, and the sheriff.
I was fine, but we all couldn't stop Laughing.

With that last name in Wilber. For some odd reason there were two listings for th Czech cemetery in Wilber. The second person didn't check to see what someone else had entered. All I know is that findagrave is in the process of deleting the dup ones since those two cemeteries merged. It should be okay now to put photo's, etc on there.
|Dacanta||RE: Boone County Graves Cemetery|
ok, now i understand. what threw me was i was looking for a cemetery named "boone county...." i created this graves memorial, and the others in this cemetery as well. i did not create the cemetery, however, and the gps map coordinates were supplied by someone else. i would be interested in knowing where you think this cemetery is, and why. findagrave sometimes makes mistakes, and this may be one. thanks for your interest.

You're welcome for the photo. Glad to be of help to you. Thanks Joy. By the way cute story about your leg going into the grave, I've already stepped and the ground started to sink but I never got my leg stuck.

I will send you a picture copy and a written copy of Gladys's obituary from our local newspaper.
I'm sorry to say I don't have Clement's obituary on file and I didn't find it in the database of our Special Collections Section of the library, so I can keep looking to see if I can find it somewhere else; I can't promise I'll find anything but I will certainly try.

Thank you for your support and kind words during my recent family death and for your offer to take over my account while I was busy with family things. I am catching up now today so hopefully others will have been understanding too that I was a bit slow in getting their SAC's done.
Take care and thank you again for your words of comfort.
