I like walking through old graveyards and cemeteries and taking photos. It is a new found hobby of mine since getting into geneology. Looking for my fathers side of the family since other family have basically sewn up my moms side. Thanks for all the hard work Aunt Babs and cousin Carolyn. Anyway still trodding through alot of my moms moms side and learning alot about myself. |
If I take a photo of a family members grave stone you may copy and use it for your geneology or records of family research. It is meant for non-profit uses only though.
I have a new hobby---whenever I fulfill a photo request I will take a look around at the other headstones and take photos of interesting ones or in particular Veterns headstones. I will come home and check to see if they are posted and if not list a memorial for our beloved Veterns. I will leave flowers for each Vetern I make a memorial and the photo of his or her stone. Hopefully someday the family will find it posted here. If I have posted a memorial of a family member- I will gladly transfer to your care. Just let me know through the edit button or posting a comment. Don't forget to provide your contributor # with transfer requests. I will even consider transfers of non family members as long as they arent my family you are requesting. I have done alot of research in finding the burial locations of my family so I prefer to keep them in my possession.
Also please let me know if you find other family members with the same name buried next to ones that I request photos for. When I find them on requests I let the family know so that THEY may post the memorial. I then upload the picture to the memorial they created and saves the time of requesting transfers and such. If you are just interested in compiling numbers then please don't claim my request. I have had too many people get rude and down right mean when I ask to have my family member to be able to link up and add information or ask them to delete one that was already posted. There are alot of very nice folks that do alot of hard work for others through find a grave let's not spoil it by being thin skinned.

Lydia M Millard - Memorial# 39563058
Louise M Millard - Memorial# 38222103, Plot: Block 81 lot 8
Is there any way to figure out if these 2 memorials are for the same person? The dates are so close. How would I go about finding out?
|Barbara||RE: Brandon Cemetery|
I have never found a listing of people buried at Brandon Cemetery. But I also have not spent a lot of time looking for one. I agree that a list would be interesting. There are 3 places I would look. The Moore Co Archives, Brandon Chapel and the courthouse. The Archives is not open very much. I think it's open only on Friday afternoons, but I could be wrong. It's located on the square in Lynchburg and I have not been in it. The people at Brandon chapel are very nice and want to be helpful. Maybe they have a list. I don't think the Historical Society has a list but you might want to join them on Facebook.
Who is your ancestor? The only Rev War veteran that I know about in the cemetery is Josiah Brandon. He is my 4th G Grandfather and already has a military marker. The cemetery really needs a good cleaning and we have considered doing it. But not until the snakes and critters are gone for the winter.
Along with the Brandons,I did find and photograph the graves of W M Chapman, 1909, and Sarah & Wm F. Bruce, 1892 & 1897. They were all founding members of the Chapel.
Sorry I cannot be of more help.

It helps when you are randomly photographing to sort the cemetery by those without a photo and copy it to Excel and print it. Saves a lot of time.

I apologize. I sent you a message and hit send before I wrote the problem on the requset for Mina in the Neuchatel Cemetery, Nemaha County, KS. I checked with the person that has photographed the whole cemetery and he did not find a gravestone for Mina.
|Phyllis Cole Ware||RE: Limer|

Your addition to the memorial is perfect. Even though he was a pauper, it's folks like you who make sure he is not lost to history. Thanks for all you do.

I would be happy to transcribe and enter the "Once a lawyer, died a pauper" information to Charles' memorial.

The pictures on both Freeman's are not the greatest. I took several pictures of each and these were the best I had. The stones are worn so much that you just can't read them well.
|mshunter||Re: Anthony Medeiros|
Thank you so much for taking the photo of Anthony's gravestone for his memorial. It's a wonderful photo and very much appreciated.
