I started in Genealogy when my aunt brought me two boxes full of pictures from the 1880 through the 1950's, that my Grandmother had written names and dates on. That was 1980. Then with the advent of the computer, and the on line data bases, it became easier, or rather, faster.
When the kids left home I became addicted.

RE: Jeffrey names in Fairview Cemeter Hi Helen, Haven't been able to get back to Fairview to finish/double check the old section. ... Some day. Please just send the links as edits and I'll "approve" them as time permits. Nice to hear from you. mrs
Now I see that Rachel Staple's Find A Grave memorial was created by another person! You created the memorials for her parents, Jason & Phila Taft Staples. (But at least now you know where their new links to daughter Rachel are coming from!) Sorry for confusion on my part.
I just sent you some edits for Rachel Staples, Swan Dale Cemetery. Just wanted you to know I'm researching the Staples line, trying to learn about my 4X Great Grandmother Deborah Staples Marsh, b 1741 in Mendon to Abraham Staples 3rd & Lydia White. I'm using the Mendon Vital Records to 1850 (online) so the info I'm sending is per those records. Unsure if I'll have more for you, but wanted you to know where my edits are coming from. Thank you for creating Rachel's memorial. Appears they named a later daughter Rachel also.
RE: Raymond Little ok, thanks, Helen. Your home page says you created over 4,000 memorials and that you manage over 4,000 memorials so I thought the chances were good that you had created the Raymond Little memorial. My mistake. Thanks again & best wishes.
Alice and Raymond Little Helen, can you transfer management of these two virtual graves found on Swandale Cemetery, Mendon, Massachusetts over to me? They are my aunt and uncle. I would like to add links to their parents. Thanks. Alice V Daniels Little and Raymond W Little
Rich Square Baptist Church Cemetery Just wondering if you created the Find A Grave entry for Rich Square Baptist Church Cemetery and if you did to let you know there IS NOT a Rich Square Baptist Church Cemetery in Northampton Co., NC.
You posted a pic of the cemetery which shows some of the gravemarkers looking across RT 258 towards a church (which was the site of a former Pinners Baptist Church) that is now a black church (can't remember the name).
The cemetery pic you show on this memorial is one taken of Cedar Lawn cemetery on Rt 258 north of Rich Square.
There are 5 memorials on Rich Square Baptist Church, 4 of whom are buried in Cedar Lawn. I haven't found any info on the 5th individual.
I've written to the creators of the 4 memorials posted in Rich Square Baptist Church Cemetery who are buried in Cedar Lawn advising them of the incorrect cemetery and asking them to transfer the memorials to the correct cemetery.
If you created Rich Square Baptist Church Cemetery, you could remove the pic and place it on Cedar Lawn's page, where it should be and then write a note in the description of the Rich Square Baptist Church Cemetery advising researchers that the memorial was created in error, that there is NOT a Rich Square Baptist Church Cemetery.
Hopefully that would keep people from posting memorials to that page in the future. Or you could request that Find A Grave delete the cemetery - after the memorials that are there are transferred to Cedar Lawn (for 4 of them).
Thanks for your help in eliminating the confusion.
Thomas Cooper photo Hello Helen, There are two Thomas Coopers in Marietta National Cemetery. You have a grave photo on Find A Grave Memorial# 28829115 (Thos Cooper Plot: F-4775) that should actually go on Find A Grave Memorial# 3947762 (Corp Thomas Cooper Plot: G, 7564).
Could you please fix? Thanks for all you have done in that cemetery. -Janet
