I am a retired school teacher and retired from the United States Army. I currently live in California and I travel through out the country and try to help others find their loved ones when on my travels. You may use any picture I have taken.
Any headstone image I post is public domain and available for non-profit use - ONLY IF - you give credit by listing your source so others can find it. Noting the source INCLUDES the photographer's name and either the Find A Grave memorial number or memorial URL. Acknowledgement of where found and who posted them would be appreciated but not mandatory.
Domingo Rocca Chuck, There are two person's with this name (father and son) at Odd Fellow's Lawn Cemetery in Sacramento. The photo you added is for the father (which needs to be listed, so you could probably transfer the photo and add a memorial for him).
George A. Pollard I recently found the Find a grave for George A. Pollard the wife of Henry W. Pollard and that you had created the page. She was a sister to my grandfather and I could give you more info if you would like it. Her husband Henry W. Pollard was set up by Mike B. and his was Nove. 2, 2015 while you page is Mary 13, 2014. Tell me if you are related or if I can give you additional information for him as well. Thanks very much for making the Find a grave page.
William S Withrow #90261815 Dear Chuck, Thank you so much for the wonderful photograph you have added to the above memorial. It is a great addition to the information gathered there. I know that it will be appreciated by the Withrows in my family, especially those who live too far away to see the headstone in person. In appreciation of your photograph and your help with the duplicate memorial I will sponsor this memorial. Sincerely, Jennifer Sims #47158681
William S Withrow #150883442 Hi Chuck, Judging by the birth and death information contained on the above memorial I believe we have two memorials for the same person. Although the memorial that I maintain for my husband's ancestors has more information and family links, it lacks the wonderful photo you have taken and posted on your memorial. My hope is that you will post your photo on his duplicate memorial #90261815 (William Simpson Withrow)and then perhaps we can deal with removing the second memorial. Are you perhaps a descendant of William Simpson Withrow?
In the meantime I am capturing your photo and the credit information in hopes of posting it on my husband's William T Withrow Family Tree at Ancestry.com as soon as we resolve the duplicate memorial situation.
Thank you so much for your consideration.
Sincerely, Jennifer J Sims (#47158681) William T Withrow
Jess Collins Thank you so much for putting Jess Collins with the rest of his family!!!!!!!!!
I know many contributors have no way of knowing if a person belongs with other family members. Especially women that marry and their name changes.
What you contributors do for us genealogist is absolutely wonderful beyond words!! The Census Records tell us people lived but we never knew when or where they died. This is the closure we all for our loved ones that came before us.
You, other contributors, and findagrave.com make this possible.
Your story was so interesting!! I enjoyed it very much!! Thank you for sharing it!!!!
Lajos Tarjany Thank you for the photo of his stone . He had passed away from the Spanish Flu. He is my mother's mother brother. My Great Aunt And my Grandmother were having look for him and not find him. always to cold or snowing. or very hot. But thank you so much they are very happy to see there oldest brother.
Mary Gilder Thanks for the quick response. I have newspaper clippings of everything if you think you want to take information from that. It is a tragic story. I can email them to you. Is that your correct email on the account. I will subject line them as Mary Gilder.
Mary Gildner- in Allentown Thank you for posting this. I was looking for her all over. After her son died in 1895, Charles Gildner age 5, she went mad. Several months later she brutally murdered her infant. She was then an inmate in the state hospital system for many years. The last reference I see for her is on the 1930 census for the Allentown State Hospital for the Insane. She was 72 in 1930. There is no 1940 census for her so she probably passed between 1930-1940. Her birth has been recorded as 1857. This is really a sad story. Her son Charles was playing on real trains (yes, a 5 year old was playing on real trains) and fell and got decapitated and mangled by a coal train.
Oakwood mixup ~ Hello Chuck. I just noticed, you posted a photo of my aunt's gravestone to the wrong memorial. THIS is the gravestone of Ada B. (Shelton) Hughes 1885-1968, not Ada (Sharpe) Hughes 1876-1910, and you've linked her incorrectly from John C. Hughes. To fix this, please remove the photo from THIS memorial and place it HERE. Then please remove the relationship link from HERE? Thanks for your help, and your Army service as well. Rich.
