Bio and Links
I've opened my "messages" back up. This doesn't entitle anyone to be disrespectful, which is why I closed it. If it happens, your message will go directly to FAG Administrator's. The message feature will be closed.

Walking the cemeteries, learning the history of those who have passed & making connections gives one a sense of accomplishment. I love every moment. One of my objective's is to compile Mound Cemetery with photo's & biographies. I've transcribed Mound for many years. I also transcribe Gardner in Pike Co., Harmon in Scioto, Blanton Branch in Johnson Co., KY, as well as other cemeteries in Clark, Green, Highland, Pike, Ross, Scioto & Johnson Co.. KY. I have family in many of these. I've taken pictures of headstone's, gone back a few years later & couldn't make them out. The elements are hard on the old one's. I'm not in this for the numbers game, whatever that is. How can anyone judge if someone is doing that or not? No one knows another's circumstances. I'm in this because Genealogy is my passion. It has been for 36 years and will be until someone is taking a picture of my stone.

Please don't post obituaries/bio's to flower/note section or correct me there. Edit & send. I will make the changes. If not I create a new memorial without the info posted to the p/n section. Send as many as you want. I'm glad to do this. Credit is always given. I'm also very glad to transfer if the request is reasonable. Once someone wanted transfers of over 30 graves. I couldn't believe it. I have a strong belief family should manage family, whether it's a recent death or someone four generations past.

If I've created a duplicate, "duplicate" is all that's required by FAG. I add duplicate #, date originated & by who. I'm more than glad to remove duplicates. It's never done intentionally.

I also try to never post the living. Because a stone has two names, does not mean both are deceased. Someone made a memorial for one of my "very alive" cousins. The spouse had passed but not my cousin. This is also against FAG policy.

Lastly, a member once told me FAG thought the memorials should open like a book. I agree. It can't if you don't link the families.

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient road
On which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

Martin Family
Please accept my apology for making a linking mess from the edit/suggestion tabs for Helen Louisa Perkins Martin 126069535, her husband- Robert Leland Martin 56839191,her father Vincent Perkins 126069188, and her mother Hulda E Gibson Perkins 126069325.

Hulda E Gibson's parents were incorrectly linked as well. Mother is Cosby Gibson 129515768 and father is Milt Gibson 129515702.

I have sent corrections again through the edit/suggestion tabs. Please let me know if you need additional information and again I am sorry. I'm not sure what happened. I'm usually not that sloppy :(

I hope you are not discouraged because that is not what I hoped to do. I am just so thrilled you posted it!!!! My great aunt had been looking for her for a long time and with joint efforts of family up there to be my eyes we were able to find her through your memorial! That is a great thing. Your posting the marriage was nothing when it could be corrected and it was. Good Job AND Thank you sooooo much for your efforts, time, & care.

Thank you for unlinking them. I did find where she had died and the obituary. They were not married nor linked at all. I am not even sure they knew each other. But I do understand where you would think they were connected. I take photos of a lot of headstones and sometimes I think the same thing but I usually just wait until someone tells me about any corrections, then I know for sure. What alerted me was he was the same age as her children and her husband had died in 1941, it just didn't make sense. She actually lived near her daughter and son-n-law in a very small house that looks something like a doll house in the pictures. Fortunately for you and your headstone photo, we have found another missing link to our famly and we THANK YOU for that! If I hadn't found that, we may have never found this mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother,etc.
