A lot of the memorials I have done are not family members, I have virtual cemeteries for my family members and ancestors for reference.
Big thanks to my hubby's uncle Pat for the genealogy on the family. He was a MAJOR help with the information I needed to "dig out" ancestors final resting places.
*Ancestors* If you could see your ancestors All standing in a row, Would you be proud of them? Or don't you really know? Strange discoveries are sometimes made, In climbing the family tree. Occasionally one is found in line, Who shocks his progeny. If you could see your ancestors, All standing in a row, Perhaps there might be one or two, You wouldn't care to know. Now turn the question right about, And take another view. When you shall meet your ancestors, Will they be proud of you? --Author Unknown--
"Gone are the living, but the dead remain, And not neglected; for a hand unseen, Scattering its bounty like a summer rain, Still keeps their graves and their remembrance green."
Patrick Porter I just recently discovered that I am related to Patrick Porter. While researching I came a cross the memorial. I am wondering about the grave marker death date and the historical marker that shows a different death date. Is there a story there? Thanks in advance, Joan
John Tennar Trina am wondering if you would transfer John Tennar to me, this is my G G G Grandfather. There are many people who try to link to this family through his children's marriages but there are very few direct family members. Alot of people pick up on the "Tanners" and try to link them but they're not our line. Keep in mind alot of people keeping records i.e. census etc. spell how it sounded to them. There are Tanners that came from MD to Harrison Co then to Van Wert area but these are not our line. Our Tennars are French, it was spoken in the family also. Thank you.
Oliver Bower - Ft Wayne State Hospital Cemetery Hi there!!! I believe I am related to this guy thru a very tangled web (go figure right?)... wondering how you came about the name "Bower", I think it's really Boner based on the 1920 US Census... any help or direction you can send my way would be so very appreciated
I need a little clarification I am a little confused...maybe you can help me. I am looking for the grave of my great grandfathers brother John Nicholas Everidge "Nick". He is the son of Moses Everidge and Emily Jones Everidge. He died in 1945 due to a C&O railroad accident. He was married to a Georgia Patton. His children are: Nicholas, Henry, Henrietta, Lucille etc. He was born on 10-17-1910 and passed on 06-01-1945. He was buried somewhere in Martin, KY. I am a little confused with the names and dates in this cemetery. I am concerned that maybe I have some info that may not be correct. Maybe you can steer me straight. Any help would be appreciated.
