Bio and Links
Bio Photo I hope you all enjoy the memorials I've created and if any of these people are related to you, please don't hesitate to ask me to transfer them to you. I've also provided links wherever possible to spouses and/or other family members.

Regarding photos -- Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo. See FindAGrave FAQs for more information.

...I only ask that you give me credit for my work. This statement applies to using my photos on OTHER websites -- not FindAgrave. You cannot copy my photos to put on a duplicated memorial on FindAGrave. Apparently, this needs to be specified because some people try to find loop holes everywhere. Courtesy and common sense should guide you but if you aren't sure, you can ask me.

If you want to attach a memorial to your family tree on Ancestry, FindAGrave is listed as a source under the birth, marriage, death section. You may have to look for it, but if it's on this website, then within a short time after adding it, it will be on Ancestry, too. If you must put the photo on your tree, please add, "Photo compliments of VickiO of FindAGrave", with a link to this page.

RE: Eliza Brooks
Thanks Vicki,
I found a record of her death and a listing of her on the Cedar Lawn Cemetery burial plots. She is listed as being buried in Sec 314, Lot 11. I noticed that her husband and children are all in what is shown on 'Find A Grave' as Sec. 11. So I guess she is buried there, but her name was never added to the headstone. What a shame. Her husband is one of my 1st cousins. Thanks again, Robin

Eliza Brooks
Hi, I'm not sure if she is buried with her husband Munson and daughter Julia. Her full name was Eliza Jane Doremus Brooks. Whoever did the photo for Munson listed Eliza as his wife, and she is on the Find A Grave memorial along with Munson. I guess I shouldn't have assumed that just because she is shown at this cemetery that she is buried there. Thanks for looking for me and I guess I'll have to do some more research on her. Robin

RE: Jessup grave photos
Thanks anyway.
At least I got the data I was looking for from Cedar Lawn. The photos were just a hoped-for bonus.

Were there no markers for the Scotts, either?

Thank you for trying to fill my photo request for my uncle George. If I had gotten out my reading glasses I would have read that hs is buried in Section 4 Lot 95 Division S.W. Grave 3 & 4 He may be buried next to his wife, Emma J Adams Bradshaw,
born about 1863.

Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

RE: Granger grave photos
Hello again, Vicki!

Well, I heard back from Cedar Lawn concerning my paternal grandfather's parents.
(Was surprised to learn they were buried there since they lived in Elizabeth.)

The names are Henry H. Jessup and Emma Grayson Jessup and both are shown in Section 9, Lot 531, grave 1.

Henry was interred 11-8-1930 (internment number 35852).
Emma was interred 11-25-1929 (internment number 35220).

Also in the plot are my great-aunt Elizabeth Scott (Henry and Emma's daughter) and her husband William D Scott.
They were buried 7-14-1910 and 4-6-1948, respectively. Do not have internment numbers.

Still hoping you can find Ida Granger's grave.
Again, she is in Section 4, Lot 552, grave number 2. Cedar Lawn was very specific about it's location / has perpetual care agreement. They even provided a diagram and information about burial space remaining in the plot.

Thanks again hugely, Vicki!

RE: Pieter Bokma

Thank you for returning to Fair Lawn Memorial Cemetery and photographing that headstone that I suspect is Pieter's. It was thoughtful of you.
