Bio and Links
Bio Photo We completed a survey of all known cemeteries in McMinn County plus transcribed McMinn County death certificates from 1914-1955.
Surnames we are reseaching: Marvin's lineage = Templin, Click, Bryant, Sisk, Smith, Waddell, Gross. Samme's lineage = Carpenter, Simpson, Hutsell, Julian, Warren
Whenever we go out to fill a request, we try to take photos of a few of the surrounding burials. Never know when you might help someone find a lost relative. We also take tombstone pictures of any veterans we see, as we try to honor ALL VETERANS regardless of when they served.
A big "THANK YOU" to all the Find-A-Grave volunteers who have taken tombstone pictures for us.
We are always working on adding veterans to national cemeteries. Our way of honoring our veterans.
***** When asking for a memorial transfer, PLEASE PLEASE use "Edit" then "Suggest A Correction" instead of posting message here. Thanks*****

Thank you
Thank you for posting the tombstone marker for my great-great uncle Joseph McNally. As a veteran, I appreciate the time you take to post veterans' graves.

Salute to you!

I suspect I may be related to the Templin/Goranson families.

I've been told my father was adopted shortly after his birth in February of 1933. His birth mother may have been Elizabeth Goranson.

I understand that Sophie Templin and John Goranson may have had an unwed birth (February of 1933).

If anyone has has information that may help my family trace our family's heritage, it would be greatly appreciated.

Please reply to this thread.

Thank you so much for helping others through your work with Find a Grave. You have helped me. I can no longer visit cemeteries due to age and health and I thank you for helping me see the graves of my family. I have been working hard on my ancestry trying to get as much as I can on family files on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker so that my descendants and others connected can see their heritage. I hope you don't mind my using copies of your photos for my family files. Thank you in advance. I appreciate so much the hard work that you who work for Find A Grave do. May God bless you as you help others.

The obituary on this memorial belongs to Clifford Francis Brink, who is buried in East Rush Cemetery, Rush Township, Pennsylvania, not Riverside California.
His birth and death dates are wrong also. He was born Sep 28 1928, and died Dec 30 2000.
