RE: edits and linking
My favorite part of findagrave is connecting the family members and I'm glad they have that "siblings" section because it helps me find quickly that I've put in a number of a sister instead of a mother's number, the dates makes it stick out.

I just spent three afternoons at st . John's the past week or so. What's great about this cemetery, same way with other church cemeteries, the folks marry each other , so I spend more time tracking down the maiden name. quite often the C for the middle initial on a stone is for the maiden name, which helps me look further. Can't find it all the time.

What's great is when you come upon adding parents, and all the kids are already added and you're able to connect them all together.

My method is to go to cemeteries and walk the rows taking photos and working them back in my man cave. Check out the new findagrave ap. I take my phone to the cemetery and can tell right away if a photo's been taken. It's helped the past week.

Keep in touch. be glad to assist if you have any questions about the means to my madness. I also tell folks on ancestry when I've used their tree for info, it works as a check on me. See ya, sorry the message is long.

RE: edits and linking
I rely heavily on family trees on and try to make sure the info appears on more than one (though occasionally that's difficult, especially for partial trees and I try to put two and two together. Also, the Baltimore county library site has the Baltimore Sun on line back to the 1830s. Obits in the papers often have the maiden name and siblings including their maiden married names. Those are my two primary sources. please let me know if you want more info on any graves I've given you; I'll look it up again and be glad to give it to you. thanks for asking .

RE: Cochran
I'm sorry, you are correct. No I'm not related to the cochrans. I spent yesterday at st john's picking out families to take photos of. there are a bunch of Cochrans and I read the list wrong. thanks for letting me know I goofed. I have found the tree for the family on ancestry so they can look at the graves on findagrave. have a good evening.

RE: anna m snyder

I think I goofed. I added photos to her memorial when I saw recently there was a photo request. today when I added my photo, I didn't see the success message and then saw you claimed the request. Please let me know if you wish me to delete the photo.
