Bio and Links
I enjoy being able to link family members or add obituaries and other information and welcome additional information or corrections for any memorials that I have recorded.
I do extensive research with the local papers, and when I find an article that might help someone else I try to pass it on.
I try to be as thorough and correct as possible, while helping as many people possible to preserve and share the stories of those who have gone on before us.
If you find an error in anything I have posted, please let me know. As we all know, everyone makes mistakes from time to time.
I do not as a rule make transfers, unless it follows the Find A Grave guidelines, I will gladly make any connection, or corrections needed.

RE: William Cralle
I have also come across errors. That is why I raise the question when I see one. Thanks for checking it out. Are you a Cralle descendant? My Cralle's migrated to Kentucky after the Rev War.

RE: Winston Brooks Memorial#100642359
I apologize for the delay in my response to you I have had so much going on... and I have been meaning to thank you dearly for the transfer of our Winston Brooks, whom was laid to rest in Lynchburg Virginia... His bio states his surviving family members and included the last surviving sibling of Winston, and of the 8 children in all, was his sister Norris Derienzo of Salem OH.. We lost dear Norris the day after Christmas... She went home to be with them.. they have missed her as much as we will here on earth.. I just wanted to thank you dearly so much for his transfer. In about a week or so if that would be ok? If I could give you a couple names and you could help me with possibly finding anything from an obit. To anything ... you seem to be so very smart with that kind of stuff. I will message you soon.. Thank you again

Thanks for the information. I've added the obituary to the two memorials and linked them to their parents.

Gill Family Cemetery, Miskimon, Northumberland County
Marsha, In Prosser Crowther, Jr.'s "Rock of Ages" he lists cemetery in Giles Corner. Another contributor, GJ (#47117269), has it as Gill / Eubank Family Cemetery, McNeals Corner, Lancaster Co. We basically have the same cemetery in three different locations. HELP. Tom B

RE: Lillian Vanlandingham
I found Lillian Brann's obit in From ancestry I have Zeff and Ora as children of Asa and Lillie, Ora is with her grandfather in the 1920 and 1930 census but Zeff was farmed off to others. Back when i did the pic of Lillie Vanlandingham's grave i used shaving cream. This was 20 years ago and I was new at this and didnt know it was not good to do. I still have the pic if you want me to email it to you so you can see it. It is a little bit better but the gravestone was still in bad shape then.

Winston Brooks Memorial#100642359
I sent you a revision form with my request for our dear Winston Brooks (#100642359) whom is buried in the Fort Hill Memorial Park Cemetery, located in Lynchburg Virginia. I do and manage most all our families memorials and additions added, so that I can edit what they would like me too so always the newest info and correct info is added, and when my great aunts remember is when I have to be on standby so I can jot down what they say they remember when their memories come back at any given time I will get a random call from one of them and then I have to run to the typer! :-) they really enjoy seeing what I can do for them and how I have found SO many old photographs of mine of our family members, and are very appreciative that I have saved and savored so much of our family history like I have. Which brings me to say to you that I really enjoyed reading your "About Me" section here on F.A.G. It is amazing what I have seen people do, how smart they are especially in family quests :-) I wanted to ask a question beside the request for our "Winston Brooks" memorial, and that is if possibly you could help me by looking something up for me? To see if you could maybe have better luck than I have, and I do not know anyone who could possibly give it a try? So when I read your "About Me" you sounded like just the person who can help me possibly... In your most convenient time of course that is, please do excuse my long message... I had alot to say on the slat board in my mind lol but if I were to provide you with a couple names... could you try? thanks so much for your time in general... :-)
