Bio and Links
I'm a preservationist and historian descended from many generations in Texas.

I was so happy to find some "lost" ancestors through Find A Grave. I joined the Find A Grave community as a volunteer, to help other people find where their ancestors and loved ones are buried, and to see photographs of markers in cemeteries they will never be able to visit personally. So many wonderful, dedicated people have volunteered time and money to make this website a success. I am disappointed it is now owned by a for-profit company, using the time and efforts of numerous volunteers.

Please give credit to the volunteers who have created memorials, and ask permission to use photographs. I will be happy to add information to memorials, with proper documentation, and to transfer memorials, following the guidelines of Find A Grave.

Regrettably, due to recent hateful messages, I have changed my contributor name to an anonymous pseudonym. As a serious researcher, I thank all of you who are kind, generous, and working relentlessly to make Find A Grave an incredible resource.

RE: Middletown Presbyterian Church Cemetery
Thanks. There are a few markers that did not photograph well as their markings were almost totally gone. I believe with back-lighting, I can make the markings visible, so when the weather gets nicer, I shall try to finish the inventory.

I found what I had sourced and Elizabeth (Cecil) McCracken (# 104404884) is also Alexander McCracken's (# 97807165) wife. She married Charles and Alexander, who are both brothers. It evens says on Alexander's bio that she is his widow. I was able to locate this additional information on Ancestry and Geni, although I am unable to access the information pertaining to them on Ancestry.

As for Mary McCracken (# 97807353), she was born in Monongahela, Washington County, PA. It said she was born May 13, 1803, but it could be October 13, 1803, as I had suggested before. The place of birth is correct and so is the date of death. Place of death is Cameron, Marshall County, WV.

Hi Sharon, I apologize for taking so long to add your edit to the Ferabee Hall memorial. I had surgery the end of Oct and wasn't working my Find A Grave edits. I've got a lot of catching up to do, but this one is done. Thank you for the additional information. Vicki Bullard

Hello, I was entering requests for the Kavanaugh Family in St Patrick Church Cemetery in Kennett Square, Pa. Helen is buried with the Kavanaugh Family and is their Daughter. I verified through the 1930 Census and The Pennsylvania, Death Certificates, 1906-1963, where they listed her parents.
I added the suggestion of adding her parents to connect her with her family.
Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you for your consideration... I totally get it Funeral Home records are not always accurate. And I did not follow thru & check her death certificate. I am sorry.

RE: Charity Marie Holmes in Lazear Cemetery
No. I'm sorry it was not. You stated in your memorial that Charity may have been buried in a different part of the cemetery other than with her first husband, B F Gray. You said she may have been buried as Charity Ferrell.

Your use of the word "may" indicated that either you were unaware of the facts or that you doubted the memorial that I had posted prior to yours. Either way, it was incorrect in this manner. I offered information that did not needed to be hedged which made my memorial accurate and yours inaccurate.

Again, thank you for doing the right thing by removing your unsure memorial.

As an aside, I just posted an accurate memorial for Henry Franklin "Frankie" Holmes in the same cemetery. You can remove your memorial for Frankie Holmes if you wish. I will post accurate memorials from now on without asking you to remove yours.
