I retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. As a person that sleeps only 4 hours a night that leaves 20 hours to fill. Sitting home is not an option. Now, I drive a school bus 5 hours a day and visit cemeteries every chance I get. I have never been to a cemetery that charged admission and seldom is there a crowd. My wife, Sandra, is of a like mind so it works well. We both enjoy the hunt and the thrill that comes with each discovery. Let us know if we can help. If you have additional information on one of my post or you are a relative and want ownership, I will gladly transfer it to you. Just ask. Oh! By the way just call me Doc! NOTE: Many times the family plot has names different from those on the headstone. I always attempt to provide a reference point for markers. Hope this is not confusing.
Two quotes worth remembering:
"Tread softly, dreams are buried here." Unknown
"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended. --Mady Castro
Lee Roy Black Doc It is my understanding that Faith Lutheran Cemetery and Shiloh Lutheran Cemetery is only divided by a lane. Your site is in the correct cemetery. I am only distantly related to Le Roy's mother, the Troutmans. Let me know what you decide to do as I have made links to the family and want to make sure I change those. You are doing great work and your information has been helpful to me many times. Karen
You took & posted a photo to memorial 40096548 for Corbett Mode back in 2009. I recently requested a photo of his wife's headstone and it appears someone copied your photo and posted it on the wife's memorial, as their own. You may or not be OK with that but the photo you took, while great for Crobett, does not show all info for the wife. I intend to request another photo of his wife's part of the stone but I did want you to be aware of what the other person did with your photo.
Lee Roy Black Richard I realized I made a duplicate of your memorial for Lee Roy Black (35437656). Would you add the links I have on my site (150219060), then let me know when you have and I will delete mine. Thanks Karen
Stirewalts Thank you so much for the Stirewalt transfers. I have updated their Bio and linked them to my family.It is interesting to note that David Miles (35468141) has two grave markers in the same cemetery?
