|Bio and Links|
I have been a genealogist for over twenty years. As part of my research, I photographed family gravestones and have posted them (and others) on Findagrave. Anyone wanting these posted photos (for their own family research) is welcome to make copies or to contact me for a copy.|
Since I wrote the above, my interest in posting to Findagrave has changed. I started with just my family tree, but I have expanded to doing unrelated gravestones & memorials also. Because of personal issues I will not add genealogical information to memorials that is not on the gravestone, unless I personally do the research. By doing this I avoid the issue of what the sources are. The exception to this is my own family tree which I have deeply researched in primary sources. Regarding the memorials I have added that are not related to me, I will be happy to and would rather transfer them to a relative of any degree or other person with a vested interest. This is because I believe that a related person will do a better job of maintaining and have more information to add to a memorial along with having more motivation to see to the linking of related persons on Findagrave. But PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR RELATIONSHIP to the requested memorial as part of your transfer request. If you choose to ignore my relationship information request I will choose to ignore your transfer request. Because of my health issues, in the future any requests for changes to unrelated memorials I have, will result in them being transferred to the person requesting the changes. So I am requesting relationship information the same as a transfer request. I hope this is OK with all. Thank you.

THANK YOU for providing the photo of the burial location of Ben Hiestand. This confirms that no stone was placed on his grave but provides the exact location for anyone wanting to visit the site.

Thanks so much Alva!
I did not know if her parents were still living.
I appreciate all your help! Have a great day!
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to photograph Miss Vance's stone. I appreciate it very much.
She was my high school English teacher.
Did you notice if there were any other members of the Vance family buried near Linda?
God Bless, Elizabeth
