Fallen Graver...
Sadly, this contributor has passed away. Please consider visiting their Find A Grave memorial page and leaving some virtual flowers. Their enthusiasm for cemeteries and willingness to help future generations lives on through their contributions to Find A Grave.
Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was so pleased when I found the "Find a Grave" site, which has given the opportunity to list members of the Akin Family and their brief bios with burial locations. I wish to recognize the hard work of Lois Akin Schultz, Daphne M. Brownell, Robert Lawrence Akin, Donna Wendt, and Karen Kelly for gathering, researching, photographing, and making available the majority of the information I used on the Akin memorials. My hope is that family members of persons I have recorded will feel free to contact me with missing information, corrections, and to add their own photographs to the memorials.If I have listed one of your family members and you wish to take over the page let me know.
Terry passed away on 2 May 2011 but I (Heidi)will continue to maintain his site and any request. Just use the edit tab on the memorial to send messages at his email address on file for any changes you want.

RE: Charles R Bloom
I am so sorry! I realized my mistake as soon as I hit "send", but unfortunately you just can't take it back! I am so sorry for your loss. What a fitting tribute to your beloved husband that you are continuing his work.
I received notification that my edit for Mr. Bloom had been accepted, so no further effort on your part is required.
Thank you, and again, I apologize for hurting your feelings.

Hi, Terry.
I can see the parental links I submitted in my "edits I have sent that are pending". I don't know why you aren't able to see them in your "edits sent to me that I need to review" file. Please check again.

Thankful Talmadge
Thank you very much. I can't tell you how sincerely I appreciate your help with my project of collecting these family memorials and seeing that they are all linked. I would never have imagined that it would be possible! Again, thanks! Deirdre

Thank you so much for continuing to manage this site! I truly appreciate it.

I wonder if you could transfer the Dakin memorials to me? I am related on my grandmother's side.

I will send an indivividual email for each memorial, with number referenced. Thanks again, Deirdre

HI Heidi,
I just wanted to say hello and thank you for managing the memorials and condolences even though it's been quite a few years after losing Terry. I never even read his page when I first joined Find a Grave and haven't been back to my families' memorials until I went to double-check my records. And no, I have no need to request transfers at this time. (Mine are the Peeds at Loudon Park Cemetery, Baltimore). But going back this morning and reading his/your page I see that he was a dedicated contributor. It's nice to find a kindred spirit. Our friends don't understand what we do but we contributors understand and appreciate each other. Thank you and regards, Jane Feldmann Cook

James Sellman Shipley
The Shipley's are my son-in-law Darren Few's line. He is descended from James Lester Shipley and Elizabeth Augusta Gere Shipley. They and several members of the family are buried at Loudon Park Cemetery. I have no entry for James Sellman Shipley with the family. Do you anything else about his family as he is no doubt related to them somehow.

Heidi, Thanks so much for the transfer. I am so excited to construct a biography for a personally-significant ancestor, whom I initially knew little about. I appreciate Terry's contribution very much.
