Cemeteries are "a memorial and a record. (They are) not a mere field in which the dead are stowed away unknown; it is a touching and beautiful history, written in family burial plots, in mounded graves, in sculptured and inscribed monuments. (They tell) the story of the past, not of its institutions, or its wars, or its ideas, but of its individual lives,--of its men and women and children, and of its household. (A cemetery) is silent, but eloquent; it is common, but it is unique. We find no such history elsewhere; there are no records in all the wide world in which we can discover so much that is suggestive, so much that is pathetic and impressive." ~~ Joseph Anderson, American clergyman (1836-1916) |
For a very touching poem, see "Dear Ancestor" by Walter Butler Palmer.
Please use Find a Grave guidelines, if you wish me to transfer management, or edit/add information (please ask via Edit tab/SAC link). ~~
I believe obituaries provide much needed genealogical information that if not captured will be lost. With the increase in cremations, obituaries might be all that outlives our ancestors. Since obituaries are already published in newspapers and on the internet, anonymity has already been compromised.

Linda, thank you for all your contributions to the Findagrave website and for permission to use those photographs in our family tree files. I am using your photographs of the grave sites of Ethel Geneva McElroy Dinkins and her family in the Emorys Chapel Cemetery in Upson County, Georgia in my Thaxton file. Again thank you. Becky
Hello - could you please connect James Whitehorn memorial number 136335031 to his wife Fanny (Rogers) Whitehorn? Her memorial number is 55016102. Their daughter Ella's memorial number is 55016125. I have a DNA match to these people but haven't found the actual connection yet. Thanks!

I do not think that the info on the above record is correct for the Maggie Lowe buried in the Porterdale Cemetery. According to the Georgia death index this Maggie Lowe was black. Maggie Mae Skipper Lowe was white and was born Nov 14, 1887 in Bibb County, Georgia. She died in Richland County, South Carolina Mar 26 1953 according to the death certiicate I have found on line. Joshua is Maggie Skipper Lowe's husband and Robert Lowe is one of her sons. Her death certificate states she is buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Colunbia, SC although I haven't been able to locate her gravesite there. Maggie Mae Skipper was my great grandfather's sister. I could be wrong here but I thought you might want to know about the coflict.
Have a Merry Christmas & HAPPY New Years..

Hi was looking for one of my relatives in Mt. Olive church cemetery Dave Merideth and I noticed you took the photo for this headstone. I just found a death certificate for my Dave Merideth but it had no birth date only a death date of December 16th, 1934. I just placed it on here also. I don't know if they are the same people.
Do you recall a Lettice Merideth this is his wife, next to his grave. Because I have her death certificate and it said she was buried there also. I just submitted her information on here with the death certificate.
Please let me know at email@example.com or on here. Thanks!

Thank you for your email.
I apologize for the delay, as I have not been on this site in years. I appreciate your kind gesture, and would be grateful if you transfered my grandfather's memorial to me.
Please advise at your convenience.
Again, thank you.
