Bio and Links
Bio Photo I inherited the genealogy bug from my mother. I ran across F.A.G. while trying to find information on ancestors. I believe F.A.G. is a wonderful site to find missing family links.

When photographing, I go row-by-row. I am not a greedy request-claimer who will go out, take a single pic, and run back to post it. From a genealogy perspective, I want to know if there are other family members in the cemetery that I may not already know of. Also, if someone has previously posted a pic of the headstone and I get a better one (I am using a HD camera), I will add mine as well.

If you would like me to transfer management of a memorial, please send me the request, and your relationship to that person. I try to transfer to family members if possible!

***** If you send me a message stating "this memorial is a dupe, please delete," please make sure the other memorial has at least as much information and pics as the one in my control. Otherwise it will remain as-is!!!

****If you would like me to add an obituary to a person, you MUST provide me with citation information!!!!!!!!

RE: Fred Carpenter - Fairbury Cemetery

If you ever get to this cemetery again, would you have time to try to read his headstone for me?

Fred Carpenter - Fairbury Cemetery
RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 57840653


You posted a photo of his headstone and I am wondering if you might still have the original? I cannot read the inscription on the posted photo. Do you by chance have a transcription?

Dear Melissa,
Thank you so much for all the work you've done recording graves and publishing the information. I have been looking for my great-grandmother's grave for several years without success. Since you added this record last year, I am finally able to know the location of her final resting place! She migrated with her husband and children to Nebraska in the late 19th century seeking land and a new start. She died in childbirth or shortly thereafter; the farm did not succeed and her husband brought the children back home to West Virginia. I have her obituary and knew that she was buried somewhere close to Omaha, but I had not been able to travel to Nebraska to try to find her. Now I know exactly where to go!
I have just joined Find A Grave, and if you are willing, I would like to take responsibility for this memorial. Please let me know what I need to do to make this happen.
Thank you again! Marjorie Price
