Bio and Links
Bio Photo I feel it is very important to locate our ancestor's gravesites.
Photographing a headstone is one way of documenting our family.

I helped form the "Noble Family Association". We locate the graves of family members that need a new marker or perhaps only had a rock to mark where they are buried. So far we have done over 180 in Breathitt, Wolfe and Perry Counties in Kentucky.
{We leave the old marker in place and add a second marker in front of the old one}
This has been such a fulfilling program.
We have done this through donations and group fund raising programs.

If you find a mistake in my posting please email and I will change the information.

I will abide by the rules in transferring the memorials. However if the person is also related in my family line then I prefer to keep and maintain myself.

Good luck to all of you in finding your relatives and hopefully you may find a way to keep the stones in good condition or replace. It is so sad to see the condition of some of the markers.

RE: John Haddix and Mary Taylor Haddix
Jerri:

Thank you for your reply. Obviously, I read the considerable contributions and work you and others have done with the "Noble Family Association". This is above and beyond the call of duty. An honorable and noteworthy cause. I thank you greatly for it especially considering John and Mary Haddix.

However, you would not be eliminating an ancestor but placing it in the capable hands of a direct descendant of John and Mary Haddix. I'm not only a writer, a graduate of the University of Nebraska, and a dedicated contributor such as yourself but a seasoned researcher dedicated to our Haddix family name and compiled solid ancestry data back to the 1400's.

Regardless, I'm glad to hear that although you do not bear the Haddix name you consider our common heritage an important life mission. Please consider my request due to utmost respect and courtesy towards you.

John and Mary are at the apex of the Haddix genealogy, especially because the uniqueness of the spelling and the branching off from the Haddock root name. In essence, these memorials represents one of the keystones to my own surname, namesake, and birthright.

Thank you for our reply once again, and I hope you understand the sincerity of my request and honor it out of the deep respect I have for my own bloodline and heritage.

With great respect,

Donald Haddix

BROSIUS Cemetery in Millville, Ohio
Hello,
First let me thank you for taking the time to transcribe and photograph the Brosius Cemetery. George Daniel Brosius is my 5th great uncle.
I see that there are a few duplicate memorials posted. I have sent requests off to the woman who created her memorials after yours to delete hers. I would like to ask you to link the children to your memorials. I will put thru the requests in the proper way, this is just a heads up on those requests being sent your way.

Thanks again!!

Hi
I can't read the inscription on her headstone where it says how old she was? Do you still have that photo on your pc?

Thanks, Hilary Steinmetz

I just noticed Peter Clem's tombstone that you photographed. I think that's great that you used something pink (chalk?) to emphasize the engraving. I was just thinking a couple of days ago what a great idea that would be because so many older stones are so difficult to read even when you zoom in on them and now I see someone has actually thought to do it! Thank you!
