I am trying to help people with their family history.
I will continue to list a new memorial so people can find it when the first and last names are totally different than Green Hills shows.

To the wonderful, nice people on findagrave, I will gladly add dates, relationships, plot and grave, etc., just let me know.

If you want a transfer, please include your findagrave contributor number and the relationship (she's my aunt, neighbor, friend. For the last 2, indicate how long you've known them.)

If I'm not related, or you're a closer relative or I have known them a shorter time, I will transfer.

I'm in the process of adding a source to the Fredericksburg National Cemetery monuments. Until I finish, it's listed in the book Civil War Burials Fredericksburg Virginia,compiled and edited by Maude E. Mercer Sellman 1979.

I walked Green Hills for exercise, sometimes forgot the broom to sweep the stones. If you need a better picture, request a photo from a volunteer.

I don't use my real name cuz of a toxic couple on findagrave! I believe they are inactive now!

Happy ancestor hunting!

Mary Elizabeth Motsinger White--
I have reviewed the findagrave report on the above mentioned person, a great aunt of mine. She is the sister of my grandmother Iva Pearl. You have listed that Mary E was born in Franklin County, Il...can you tell me how you established this birthplace. I was of the understanding that Charles Wayman and Margaret Ann children were born in the Dallas Tx. area before they, the Charles Motsinger family left Texas and relocated in the Southern part of Illinois--Franklin County. I believed that they had settled in that area around 1903-05 at the time the City of Sesser was established. The Motsinger Family lived in the Greenwood area of Franklin County.

Please get back to me regarding this information.

Margaret Palmer Cross Picture

I really appreciate that you have posted the picture of the Palmers on Maggie's page. Maggie is my Great Great Grandmother. I can see that the names of those in the backrow are listed on the picture but do not see the front row. Do you know who the 4 are in the front row and can you send me that information? Also, how are they all related?

Thank you again and in advance. Sure love seeing photos of my ancestors that I may never have been able to without sites like this.

John Logan Grove
Dear D K Railsback B,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, John Logan Grove was also a member of this unit, which is partially confirmed by his gravestone.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but want to eventually publish something. Would it be permissible to use your photograph of the grave of John Logan Grove (Find A Grave Memorial# 3713325) should I eventually publish something?

Thank you,

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson

Shelly photos
I want to say thank you for adding photos of people (such as Elenora Potts-Clark and family) and gravestones.

I'm wondering if you would grant me permission to use your photos on my file. I place credit for the person who posted the photo under the photo description in Ancestry and I have no interest in the photo for anything other than genealogical purposes.

Thanks so much for all your work and your consideration of my request.

I went to the cemetery for the above mentioned name. He is not buried there.

This is my father whom I never met. I was hoping to get some closure. Although my uncle is buried there my father is not.

Railsback family
In 1887 the Levi L Sutton family, William Goodenough family, and Elias Dirstine family all moved from Michigan (Lapeer County).
Levi's wife Sarah Jane was Wm. Goodenough's sister.
Levi's sister, Sarah Isabella, was Elias Dirstine's wife.
So all were brothers and sisters-in-law.
Levi L Sutton is my gr gr grandfather.

I am trying to figure out when the Railsback's moved to Adams Co.
In 1887 Adin Railsback was only 7. He married Maude Goodenough, daughter of Wm. Goodenough.

you can email me at
