Bio Photo If you need edits to a memorial I have created:
*************************PER FAG!!!!********************************

and then please use the "EDIT" tab. It has been said that "Genealogy without documentation is mythology." (THANK YOU SUSAN!!)

It never ceases to amaze me how many people visit or create memorials for deceased people but balk at having a picture of a piece of paper that says someone has died.....?? Just saying!

I started doing research on my family tree around 1995 with my grandmother Dennis. We spent many hours together researching, walking cemeteries, looking at family photos, and sharing memories as well as making even more. She was a special person to me and I like to think I got some of my traits from her.

As of February 2016 I am currently uploading pictures of all the graves in Seaford Odd Fellows Cemetery. After I enter everything entered I will go back and check for duplicates and any other problems. Thanks!

My favorite epitaphs:

Marion Michael Morrison (John Wayne):

Today is the most important thing in life
Comes into us at midnight very clean
It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands,
It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

Godfrey Beamguard:

Adieu all both far and near, my loving wife and children, For my immortal soul has fled, I now lie numbered with the dead. Remember friends as you pass by, As you are now, so once was I, As I am now, so you must be, Prepare for death and follow me."

RE: Wingate Family
Hi Laura! Thanks for yourmemorials! I think you're referring to the two edits I submitted that you have not yet approved - adding Flora Hester Matthews and Roland Wingate as the parents of both Alice Wingate and Marjory Smith. I don't think I have any documents to share with you (well I probably do in my files somewhere if you need them) but Roland and Flora are my grandmother's parents so I know these edits are 100% accurate. My grandmother was their daughter Myrtle Elizabeth Wingate Lucente. Alice Wingate and Marjorie (Wingate) Smith are my grandmother's sisters. On Alice's page, you actually have it written that she is the daughter of Flora and Roland, so I just want to link the memorials. I actually knew Marjorie well since she was so much younger than my grandmother and just died 12 years ago. Anyway, so my proof is that I'm a direct family member! :) Let me know if you have any other questions and thanks so much for making sure everything is accurate!

RE: Elsie Tilghman edit
I don't have copies of her marriage or death certificate, the information supplied in my edit came from a hint on Ancestry in the U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007.

James Dashiell

Hello Laura -

Do please forgive my tardiness in replying. Serious problems have been plaguing this computer, which is now supposedly fixed.

The picture that I removed was nearly the same as the replacement. The only difference was that the first one was without the attached caption.

From "Dashiell Family Records," Benjamin J. Dashiell, Volume I, Page 28:

"It is in this burying ground, located on the second terrace above the waters of the Wetipquin Creek, that James Dashiell and his wife Ann are supposed to have their graves."

Personally, I have not had the pleasure of visiting "Long Hill." If James' grave was ever marked, the gravestone evidently has decayed. Of course, he died almost 319 years ago.

RE: Edit requests
Thanks! I updated Lucy Edie Fleming's profile page to show a more detailed obituary that lists her children. I agree, more information is a good thing.

Thanks for your interest. We haven't been there in some time. My wife would certainly appreciate your efforts. She always has a wistful look in her eyes when it comes to talking about her older sister, even after 44 years.

Aleda Glime
Thanks for the Seaford O. F. tip off about Aleda! Odd, indeed, that she's on a shared tombstone with child Rinda and ex-spouse Clarence, as - like you mentioned - they ceased to be a couple decades ago, per obituaries and records, yet the shared tombstone looks relatively recent. I wonder of Aleda wound up buried there, and if her death date will be added to that tombstone, or if other arrangements wound up being made. Either way, since there's the stone, Seaford Odd Fellow is validly where her memorial is now assigned to. Thanks for letting me know about the stone there!

RE: Alice Ritchie
Yes, that was a duplicate. I moved the link to her husband and deleted the duplicate. Thanks for catching that.
