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."

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.

The Strohmaier plots where she is as well, are best accessed via Market St. straight in for about 75 feet or so off to the right. The main Strohmaier stone is a reddish tan with individual headstones. Don't have any coordinates.

I wish I could find Perry and Mary Marvel. I'd bet they are also there as James and two of his siblings are too. If you find them would you let me know? thanks

Mary Ann was my wife's sister, killed in an auto accident in 1972. I was at the funeral and burial. She may not have her maiden name listed on the stone.
