Bio and Links
Bio Photo We love genealogy and recognize the importance of it. We treasure the little bits and pieces that we are able to glean from the smallest specs of information. We do our best to help others as others have helped us... however...

Although it is our normal policy to attach memorials to those to whom know them best, we will no longer just randomly transfer memorials simply because they are in your genealogical tree. Findagrave is not a "collection" site. It is a Memorial site designed to honor those who've gone before us. We do not treat them as "property" to be traded or collected to increase your numbers and notoriety. If you have more data or biographical information, we will gladly verify and add it to the repective memorials and do any necessary linking to parents & spouses.

You can do this quite easily by clicking on the "Edit" tab at the upper right corner of the memorial. Once opened, you will see a "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" link. If you click on that link, a message box will appear that will allow you to send a message directly to the memorial creator who can then add the information as needed. You can easily check the box that will allow you to send a copy of each transmission to your own e-mail for your records as well.

If we have ownership of a memorial that you are related to, ask and we will either transfer ownership or may share accumulated information if you are closely related and can verify your relationship. If you'd like to use a photo for genealogical purposes that we have added... please just give credit where credit is due by referencing our ownership of the photo and where you located it. ~"Happy Hunting"

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.

RE: Abraham and Eunice Walker
I was happy to be able to help. Eunice's stone is in such sad shape. It was a fortuitous request, as it still was somewhat legible and probably won't be for long.

Abraham and Eunice Walker
Greetings. Today I took photographs of the Walkers in Sand Hill Cemetery in Foster RI at your request. I left captions on each photo to explain. If you click on each photo, you will be able to see the comments under the enlargements. Eunice's stone is almost completely broken down leaning forward and unreadable. I was able to get what writing is left by lying under. I have included a transcript of Abraham's stone to make sure it is clear. Hope this helps!

Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate memorial. Since mine was the original but I only had her listed as Mrs Jake Wiley, I think best that I will delete my memorial for her.
Thanks for letting me know.

Hi there,

I noticed that a couple years back you requested a photo of your great grand uncle, and although a volunteer wasn't able to find his grave, today I posted a copy of his death certificate on his memorial. I hope this little bit of information might help you.

RE: Fowlers Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery Photos
I'm glad that those will work for you. I wish I had a chance to go back and get Minnie's marker for you as well. I am from St Louis, and am only here for one day looking for loved ones of my own who came from this area and wanted to do what I could for the members of this site who have helped me on my genealogy work. I'm so sorry. I hope another member will be able to get that photograph for you soon!
God bless,

RE: William Torgerson - # 66723088
You are so very welcome! I am glad the information was readable even though the marker needs a good cleaning.

Glad to be of help!

William Torgerson
Hi there- am posting a few pics of the marker for William. I actually set this up a few years ago, and his marker is hard to photograph with the sun and the black marker, but think I have a fairly good picture for you to see what his marker looks like. His marker is in a very old, section of the cemetery which is very hilly and on the north end of the cemetery. This area used to see many teens and young kids frequenting the huge Rucker Tomb above his marker, and vandalizing markers on the way down the hill and out of the cemetery. The cemetery is great now with security and vandalism has gone way down. I have a friend who helps out with photographs in this area, so we are partners in numbers to be safe!

i am very thankful the marker for William is there and am posting a few pics, and would love to send them to you. Please let me know if okay to send!

Cheers again from Everett area-

RE: Haskins Burials - Chico Cemetery
I have corrected the captions on Pricilla and Laura Haskins. Tomorrow I hope to photograph the headstone to the right of the large family marker.
