|When I retired from the Penn State University Libraries, where I was a reference assistant and staff supervisor for many years, I began to research our family history, and this has led my husband and I to a number of cemeteries around the country, searching for family members and taking photos of their graves. It has thrilling for us to find the grave sites of long-lost relatives as well as to visit those of fondly-remembered loved ones. It has been equally thrilling to discover photos that have been posted to Find a Grave for relatives buried in distant places that we have not visited or are not likely to ever be able to visit. |
We are very appreciative to all of the Find a Grave community of volunteers who so freely give of their time and effort in creating memorials and taking photos, so that others may benefit from them. Likewise, we are happy to share our photos with anyone who cares to use them for personal research or on genealogical sites such as ancestry.com. We aren't professional photographers, and our egos are not invested in our photos. That said, we would still love to hear from you if you are able to use our photos, simply to give us a little "glow" from being able to help you out.
Most of the memorials we have posted have been for members of our families, but we will consider transfer requests within the Find a Grave transfer guidelines. If there are errors to correct and/or additions to be made, please let us know and we will attend to them as soon as possible.

It was my pleasure! Lindo is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Colorado.

Elijah Hall - War of 1812 pension application. On the application it lists "Delila Ruckman" under the category of Maiden name of widow and also his second wife Nancy (mnu) Fields.
I also have copies of two Rusk family bibles; both list mother of Margaret as Delilah Ruckman.

Thanks Gwen for alerting me to the removal of his body to Deerfield, I have alerted the person managing his memorial in Arizona. Any time a headstone/marker exists in a cemetery or public place other than the place of burial a memorial should be created and noted as a cenotaph. This is why there must not be a merge of the two, they need to stay separate and notations made identifying which is a cenotaph and which exists in the correct burial location. Jim

So much for the better picture of Mr. Copp's stone! I drive over a hundred miles to get these pictures and if one doesn't come out well, like his, there's little I can do about it!
I'm adding to his obituary today and happened to notice the much better picture - thanks again!

Abel, Sidney & Martha and cemetery photo: yes, you may use them with credit given. Sorry the Abell photos aren't any better. I must have been there on a very sunny day because they are rather hard to read. Thanks for asking!
