Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please visit my dad John Joseph "JJ" Farley and my mom Arlene Ida Wittenberg and other family members that I have linked together. If the mood strikes, thank you for leaving a flower or token.



Please DO NOT make requests by leaving a message.

Use the "EDIT" tab on the memorial to ask for any corrections, updates, or transfers to be made. I need the links the "EDIT" tab provides. Please make sure you're signed in as I need the link to your member page as well.


The 6th option on the "EDIT" tab - "Suggest Any Other Addition or Correction" is a free-form e-mail sent to the manager of the memorial (even when they have their e-mail address hidden from public view) and should be used when -

1. you'd like bio info added (or corrected),
2. you'd like to request a transfer,
3. anything that requires an explanation or source info; or if you'd like to contact the member without leaving a public message.



The "EDITS" tab on the top part of your profile page is NOT the same as the "EDIT" tab on each memorial page. This is where you will check on the status of most of the edits you request as well as approving or denying most of the edits sent to you.


Please read the FAQ's!(AKA - Help with FAG) There have been many changes to the FAQ's lately, please re-read them. If you can't find an answer or if what you're looking for isn't clear, please come to the Discussion Forums. There are many people there with years of experience on this website and are more than happy to help.


I do not link to memorials that are - "Burial: Unknown Location". Find the grave first, then we add all the other info.


I add these memorials as a tribute to those who have passed as well as allowing friends and relatives who cannot travel to "visit" and pay their respects.

All information shown on the memorials I create, has been taken from obituaries, provided by another member, was available on the funeral home website or taken from SSDI.


Many thanks to all the volunteers who have added their hard work, love and sanity to create these memorials. Without your dogged trekking through brush, nettles, rain, snow, ornery cemetery attendants, dusty historical registers and the like to photograph and record the resting places of those that have gone on before us, we would not have this website.


My heartfelt thanks to bill for sponsoring several of my family's memorials. He is a very kind man with a wicked sense of humor.

RE: Edits for Gladys Taggart
Edna was not Vandiver's mother, but stepmother.
His mother's name might of been named Mary "Molly" , but I am not sure yet.
I have an obituary of one of Edna's family members listing her last name as Taggart/Taggert

The 1930 Census with Gladys and her mother living in Indiana.
The 1930 census record of George listed as a widow and his sons in his household.

RE: Yo! Bucky!
It is past due. I never understood why the place added a "chat site" type board in the first place. It made the boards look unprofessional and ... worse.

I stopped posting there way back on Christmas Day of last year. I had enough of the insanity and bickering there.

Perhaps I'll log into the new site to see what's what.

BTW... My email address is always there for you to contact me.

RE: Yo! Bucky!
Things here are good. Last month I won $2500 on a scratch off ticket. Luck of the Irish. In a month I return to Plymouth Mass. for a vacation. I'm not quite dead yet.

I'm going to try holding on to my subscription for one more year before I drop it. I think there is little meaningful stuff I can even add now.

I used to stop by and read forum stuff, but I understand it is gone now? I have not tried to visit in many weeks. I'm not in contact with anyone there (present company not included).

Hope all is well.
