It really bothers me to see unmarked graves and graves with names but no dates; makes me want to find their families; some I do, some I don't. I wish I had enough money to replace all the monuments that need replaced and add those who don't have a marker! I would happily do so. After being in some of the cemeteries and seeing how many of the monuments are due to environmental conditions, etc; it has encouraged me to photograph and get as much documentation as is there because in future years; at least what is there now will be known and people able to see on findagrave.
Mark Cook a cousin, Jan W Smith, a cousin and I have been working together on our genealogy and others the past few years. Since Jan is in the area he does a lot of photographs and Mark travels once or twice a year to do cemetery photo's also. I have taken many myself as well.
I've been working on our family genealogy for what seems a life time! I started as a youngster with my grandparents, aunts, uncles going to cemeteries taking information and visiting relatives and friends taking information. I am from Washington County, love it and miss it; however, don't like the changes!! But, it is still my home though I don't live there or get home often. I have two sons and two grandchildren and have been able to pass the genealogy "bug" to them and hope they will continue when I am no longer able or around to do so. Mary
