Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy doing genealogy as time permits. I've found numerous graves of my ancestors that someone had posted. I probably will never get to visit their graves, but "you" have provided that privilege to me. When I enter a memorial, I like to think it is someone's kinsman/ancestor they are looking for.
On my memorials, I try to add the parents' names, if I can find them.
I especially like to find veterans (all wars) to honor them and will add a flag, or floral tribute, especially if they don't have one.

I welcome additional information to a memorial, or a correction. Use the white Edit tab at right top of the memorial. I will transfer a memorial if you are a relative according to Findagrave guidelines.
My Family names I research: Vance/Sinclair, Yarbrough/Ellis/Young, Montgomery/Posey, Barnett/ Reynolds; Yandell/Sparks, Lee/Durham, Ward, Powell/Weaver and on it goes.

NOTE: I appreciate the person who posted that we need to look at our 'profile' page (top right) "Edits" to find requests for amendments to memorials we need to make for them.

Hi, thanks for the info on Richard. But I happened on you edit email in my spam folder! Things have been a litte screwy since Ancestry took over!

You mentioned "more info". If you sent more than one, I did not ger the first one.
Thanks, Debra

RE: Florence Fitzsimmons...
Yeah that is correct.. They are buried next to each other and then her Father and a Brother I just connected and a couple of babies that were her Sister Kathryn's...There is also a Grandson, Cousin and Aunt and uncle on the lot..Graishs are buried here but I haven't figured that one out yet.. Mary K. is buried above Bert and Kathryn and her husband Coyle are buried above Fitzsimmons...I think there is one more Walaski monument but the camera decided to paly games about that time and by the time I got it figured out I was at the bottom of the hill and didn't want to make the climb...I will be going back and doing more pictures the first week of August.. I did a walk through on the way back to the car and have most things scouted out.. Still looking for one or two families but I keep finding more that isn't on the cemetery list that what is...

RE: Florence (Walaski) Fitzsimmons, PA
As far as I have found Florence was the daughter of Bert Walaski and Mary K. ?..I am not sure what I edited as it was rather later last night and I was running behind this morning...All the Walaskis are buried in one spot up on the central hill.. I was trying to connect Florence to her husband...

RE: Carrie Hall, transfer - Update
There is no need to transfer it back I'm not related, and your more likely to come up with the family links than I am. JF Simpson

Thank You
Dear Winnie,

Thank you so much for the information on Rev. Thomas L Pratt of Rushford, NY, it is greatly appreciated !!!

Please go back Thomas's Memorial, and check that I wrote everything. I have you down as a source.

I need to go back to First Cemetery in Rushford & try to take photos of the old gravestones, which are almost impossible to read. I just need to figure a way to get the gravestones to read, so that they can be on Find A Grave.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. The 2nd of July was my birthday & I am so involved in the Mount Prospect project. I am taking photographs of the entire cemetery & adding them on Find A Grave. I will be there today also !

Sincerely, Your Friend, Laurie S Tokarsky

Winnie,Thank you for contacting me. I am very interested in receiving a copy of Nathaniel Sala's Memorial and book info if possible. Are you related to Nathaniel? I have much info on him and the other Sala's if you're interested. Happy Hunting, Nick.

RE: Prof/Mrs.. W. Colegrove, Conn
Hey thanks!! I try! I just got finished linking everyone. I'm just stumped about where Williams mom is buried, Sally Eliza (Brewster) Colegrove. She does not show up on the Hale listing. Thanks for your input, I love it when people send me the sources for their corrections/enhancements. It makes my job easier! I do dislike the new way that folks can send their corrections, because now I have to do all the research! If I can't find any info, I then do the correction, then contribute the links/dates/etc to that member with their member number. That way I don't get blamed for any incorrect info! Irma
