I am a CHRISTIAN, wife, mother,grandmother & great grandmother.
I have found past & present loved ones in FAG. It has made my search for family easier. Family means so much to me.
I walk through local cemeteries Bakersfield, Fowler, Fore,Clear Springs,Moody,Amy,Hawkins Ridge, to name a few. I find so many are not listed or photographed. I want others to locate their family .
At first I tried to photograph and enter graves and then I decided if I were going to add a memorial I should look for Obit's, death certs,. I find obit's information that aren't on memorials that I have so I try to enter and "FYI" the FAG person who maintains the memorial. I think that if I post on some one else memorial that they should have a heads up. So please "FYI" so that I can consider what has been posted. I don't want so many memorials that I can't maintain them. If I post something you don't want there, I don't want it there either. Under the comments on obits it should have the paper and year that I found it. How ever I am human I do make mistakes. I also find that the IPad and computer do strange things. Just let me know and will do my very best to correct information.
If you are direct kin I will most likely transfer it to you. I am not into numbers .
I hope you find family members. And if you do I would like to know, so I know my efforts are helpful.
Thank you for the wonderful work you are doing with Find A Grave. I am the grandson of James McClellan and Minnie Atkinson Vaughan.Find A Grave Memorial #'s 49286307 and 49286277. All their children including my father Carl Edward Vaughan has passed. I would like to update the memorials with additional information. Would you consider transferring these to me. Thank you for your consideration.
RE: Caldwell in Fla. Hi - Thanks for the query. Unfortunately, not my family. However,the Polk County Historical and Genealogical Library in Bartow has obits for both of them (but no marked burial info in the county, and nothing on FindAGrave).
RE: 148206116 Dr J P Hoffa Hi again, I was just looking at the obit...it's kind of hard to read...looks kind of blurry....can you send me a copy directly? my email is email@example.com....& maybe you could try uploading it again...& could you tell me how you found this....all my paternal family are some of the founding families of the northumberland area! This might fill in some blanks for a lot of us...thanks again, G
RE: 148206116 Dr J P Hoffa OH YES !!! that is wonderful....It's such a "eureka" moment when someone finds those great Obits!!...Please feel free to add any more you may come across that I may have listed...Just promise to let me know...G
RE: Helen Gaffney Adams Greetings, I responded back to your question "Are you kin?". You said that Helen is your aunt. Who in the family line to Aunt Beulah makes you her niece?? Just curious...trying to fit the family puzzle pieces together. If you feel in the future that you can transfer Helen I would be happy to manage her memorial. sjp.. 47809282.
RE: Helen Gaffney Adams Yes, I am related. Helen's mother, Rosa Beulah Rutledge Gaffney Find A Grave# 42968647 is managed by me. Aunt Beulah is the sister of Leon Rutledge, Find A Grave # 125945955. I manage his memorial and he was my grandfather. sjp.. 47809282.
