Wish I would have known about this site years back. My wife and I have been in cemeteries all over the country from Alaska to Arkansas and New Mexico to New Hampshire. We have over 19,000 names in our family tree. I have a passion for doing this and would be glad to help anyone that I can. If I have something on here you would like removed I will do it.
I will be happy to transfer a memorial to you if your relation is closer than ours. Please include your Findagrave number, the name and number of memorial, and the cemetery where the memorial is located.
I have become the Family Historian and the keeper of records. It is a life-long journey that continues to fascinate, amaze and sometimes puzzle me.. but the path has taught me the value of patience and perseverance - both valuable life lessons.
I also do a web page for the little town of Indianola Nebraska that I live in. The site is http://indianolane.com
Obediah Joy Jr Hello! I saw that you were related to Obediah Joy Jr. I am as well and I am looking for more information about him. I am related to him through his granddaughter Elymra and her husband Aaron. They were my 4th great grandparents. Their son Charles Lester Gardner was my 3rd great grandfather, and his son Nathan Frank Gardner was my 2nd great grandfather. The only one I was able to meet was my great grandma, Wilma Gardner (married name was beyer) and i am very desperate for more information. If you have any and don't mind sharing with me, I would love to hear from you! Thank you!
Osceola Cemetery, Osceola, NE Hi Bill, We respectfully request permission to use the cemetery entrance photo in our personal tree. Bruce has a cousin and family interred there and the photo will make a great addition to our tree.
Charles Schneider You added an entry for Charles Schneider (17154222) in the Otis Lutheran Cemetery. However, he was actually buried in the Otis Methodist Cemetery as memorial page 90896423. Please remove you entry for his in the lutheran cemetery as well as all of his siblings on that tombstone.
Peter D Van Patten Hello! I am curious to know if you found a grave for Peter Van Patten's wife in the Benkelman Cemetery. I am writing a book on the 110th regiment NYSV and am attempting to trace all the men who survived the war. Thanks for taking the picture of Peter's stone. I attempt to confirm all information I locate and pictures are worth more than their weight in gold!! Many thanks. Natalie J. Woodall, PhD
RE: Jacob Zurich Bill, I am the Research Assistant at Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum in Miami, Az. As I am digitizing old newspapers, I am saving the obituaries and adding the information to findagrave. So as I find them, I will add them. Also, if you find some that I've written, feel free to send me a message and ask for the actual obituary. Findagrave doesn't like for anyone to post the actual obituary, even though the copyright laws apply only for 90 years.
Pawnee City Cemetery I wonder if I may have your permission to use your grave marker and/or cemetery photos on my family website. Check it out at www.freienmuth-shortridge.com/shortridge/cemeteries.html. This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.
