Bio and Links
I first became interested in our family's genealogy. Then I started collecting old family photos. As my interest grew, I started exploring cemeteries near my hometown, where I learned that tombstones often give valuable information.

Since I found Find a Grave, I have started walking through cemeteries taking pictures of all of the stones. I love the old stones, but they are often hard to read. I take multiple views, then photoshop them to enhance the lettering. I enjoy adding pictures of the tombstones to the memorials. If I don't find entries for the tombstones I have photographed, I add their names to Find a Grave.

You are welcome to copy the photos for your personal use. PLEASE, if you want to put them on or any other website, please give credit to me. All you have to do is mention the Find a Grave memorial number or my name. It upsets me to see someone else take credit for uploading pictures I spent hours collecting or photoshopping.

If you know additional information you would like added to a memorial I created, I would rather transfer management to you than make the changes myself unless they happen to be members of my family.

No, that's okay he's not a family member, I just happened to have his obit on same newspaper page for a family member.
Thank you,

Doreen, Is this possibly the son of Martin and Sarah Belle Adams? i have a record of his birth as in 1887. Could be a typo. Sarah Belle Adams' findagrave memorial mentions a child dying early in life. This is from an obit in the Marion Star Feb. 8 1913. Thanks. Be Blessed Jon D Eager

RE: Martin Adams
Doreen, Happy to contribute to your findagrave page. I found this in an old copy of the Marion Star in our old house in the attic. Ron Adams,Martin's great grandson found it interesting too. He said that there was an article titled "Last Civil War Veteran in Claridon Township Also Wild West Pioneer" in the Marion Star from late May before Memorial Day,1936. Written by George N Hinds. Be Blessed. Jon D Eager P.S. I plan to portray Martin at our Night at Heritage Hall in Marion, Ohio in March of 2016. It is a thing based on the movie, "Night at the Museum". Local people dress as and portray local and national historical persons; everyone from a madam of a local whore house to minister.

RE: Hause twins(?)
Hi, Thank you for inquiring. I don't have any additional information about their burial. I live in Iowa and Find A Grave never puts the Cemeteries phone numbers or email addresses in their data information. Most cemeteries don't seem to even have an office to contact any more. Thanks for your assistance though. Much appreciated. JMartin

RE: Betty Davis
I am so sorry. My wife was helping me and she added the memorial for her. I didn't know that she did. Yes, Betty did work for Farmington schools. Once again, I am truly sorry for tis duplicate memorial.
