Bio and Links
Bio Photo I came across this statement on Winston "Wink" and Martha Murphy's headstone(buried in Woodland Cemetery), "I want someone to know I was here".
Pretty much sums up why I do what I do. I feel Everyone wants to be remembered.

Please REMEMBER I do this in my FREE time out of respect for the families. If mistakes are made, BE KIND and remember this isnt my paying JOB. We will not transfer FAMILY Pages from our own Framily Tree. Thank You.

Re: Fredrick J Shane
Re: Fredrick J Shane

Hello Ronipony,

Your person listed as Fredrick J Shane, Find A Grave Memorial# 39888969 was my own my own blood Great-Greatuncle.

Fredrick J Shane was "Roderick Frederick James "Fred" Shane." You have him listed here: on Find a Grave's site.

I am related through his own parents James "Jim" Shane Find A Grave Memorial# 162011930 and his mother Eliza Jane "Jane" Copeland Shane Find A Grave Memorial# 162012102.


You don't have an email address listed so I will have no choice but to leave you a "public message on the Find a Grave's site." My email is gballik@ Roderick Frederick James "Fred" Shane and myself share the same birthday of Mar 21st.

Roderick Frederick James "Fred" Shane married Jesse May Shane Mackenzie on 4 Jul 1904 in Frontenac County, Ontario, Canada. They both lived in Kingston, Frontenac County, Ontario, Canada before moving to Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio. I have records here.


I would love to share more information I have here on this family; however your bio says "Please REMEMBER I do this in my FREE time out of respect for the families. If mistakes are made, BE KIND and remember this isnt my paying JOB. We will not transfer FAMILY Pages from our own Framily Tree. Thank You."

I have extensive knowledge here that you should be made aware of concerning my Great-Greatuncle and I am willing to provide and send once I hear from you forward. It is not my attention to add "duplicate" records so please contact myself at your own earliest conveniece. I will provide details for review and suggested corrections to you on your own ownership of

Yours in trust,

Gord (#48985937)

Wrong marriage
Hollie Bussard is a Male in Oct 3, 1917 served his country in World war 1. Oct 16, 1918 at the age of 31 yrs old was Killed in Action WW1 in France.

HE was NEVER married to my Great Grandpa Otey Lee Bussard who was married to only 1 person my Great Grandma Lillian Frances Aton on Nov 4, 1920 to May 16, 1977 the day he passed away..

I understand this is a hobby and you don't get paid for this, and I'm sure loads of people are grateful for all you do, BUT this is the problem I have with this site..

1. its not your family, and when the real family contacts ANY of you Find a grave HOARDERS and YES that's what you are acting like a bunch of DEAD people HOARDERS collecting as many as you can....
about incorrect info or we want the rights to our dead love ones we gotta hear all your drama, not my day time job yada yada.. and we cant just open a new record for the SAME PERSON.. by rules of find a grave....
and some people would like to have the CORRECT info for future generations..

2. if your so busy with daily life and this isn't your daily job than RELEASE the families who want to add other children, death dates, marriage dates, spouses..the CORRECT INFO

3. Why collect dead people you don't know aren't related to? is this a contest? Find a grave running some kind of dead people collecting contest we don't know about?

Sarah Z. Williamson
In your work at the Highland Cem, Covington, Miami Co, OH, there is a tombstone for Sarah Z. Williamson, Memorial# 28788386, I cannot make out the information on the stone, you give a death date of 19 July 1898, aged 69y 9m 5d. If I computed that correctly I get 14 Oct 1828 and this conflicts with her census age. I cannot read the stone, only that her name is Sarah Z. Williamson and the month July. If you have any more information, or photo I would greatly appreciate it, just as I appreciate your work providing we readers at a distance with the information we need.
Thank you,
Claudia Mader

I made a mistake on Edit
On #32691844 The relationship should be for the husband @ # 32691927

If you could edit my edit for me I would appreciate it.

Thank you Steve Moore
