I'm in the process of researching my memorials. I try to get documentation for all the information I place on each one. Disclaimer: I am not responsible for misinformation placed on the memorials I manage via "edits".
Do not use my pictures without my permission. I will not give permission for them to be used on Ancestry dot com. Why would I post them here "free to view" only to have another site "charge" to see them?
Many thanks to all who have helped me with my memorials. A very big thank you to Find A Grave for this outstanding web site.
(my Grandson...sadly, my first memorial) 16 March 2006
If you have additions or corrections for a memorial, please use the suggest a correction "edit tab', upper right on each memorial. I will not make additions I can not verify. Please do not leave "edits" below. Thank you.
If you donít want to read my RANT, stop here. Whatís up with these people who MUST have their relative transferred to them. Then when I look at the memorial, a year or two later, not a blessed thing is added. Not even a flower.
Also, how hard is it to proof your memorial bio AND correct typos? OK, Iím done.
Samuel Bull I am the great-great grandson of Samuel Bull. Do you have any information on his ancestors, or death date? Census only states that he was born in VA.
His wife, Rachel Irons Dale is buried in the Dale Cemetery, Harrison County, MO, as "Rachel I. Dale". The stone appears to be concrete and etched by a semi-literate person as the number "9" is consistently reversed. It lists her birth as 13 Mar 1838 and death as 13 Sep 1892. The survey of the cemetery does not list any Bull burials.
Their daughter Sarah Lavina [Bull] Gordon [2 Jan 1855-17 Jul 1936] (my great-grandmother) is buried in the Sophia Cemetery, Beaver County, OK.
RE: Johnny I too have a Grandson named Jonathan. Today is his 25th birthday. I treasure every day and every imperfection he may have (not as neat and tidy, etc). He has taught me to love more than I ever thought I could. I so understand your love of your Johnny....
RE: Nancy Hazen I agree. When I contacted Find A Grave about him creating brand new memorials, they went with him. Most of my memorials were entered in 2007 and back then we entered by names on the headstones (as listed on cemetery surveys). When he enters a new memorial, he does not have the courtesy to advise the person with the original memorial to delete theirs. Thus there are a slew of duplicates which confuse people, links that go to originals, etc. It is a mess, really. I don't know why this man lacks cooperation with fellow gravers. It's like he's a control/rule freak who has to be 'right' about something.
God forgive me, but I figure I'll read his name in the obits one day and then it will take years for other gravers to straighten out the 'duplicate mess' he created for his legacy.....
RE: Republic of Texas Citizen Burial Registry I was able to confirm that he has been validated by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and have added the medallion and verbiage to the site. Thanks for bringing him to my attention.
