I inherited by interest in genealogy from my mother, Doris Sue Spence Fontaine (Memorial # 83062091). Growing up, a Sunday afternoon ride through the country usually included a cemetery visit which I affectionately call a cemetery hop.
A few years ago I decided to make her handwritten or typed pages into an electronic format after encouragement from family and friends. In many instances, she left behind clues for me to follow in my adventures today.
You are welcome to use any of the photos that have been posted to the memorials. I would appreciate if you would kindly give me credit for my efforts when using them.
Happy Hunting! Martha
~ I'm the Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Granddaughter of Rev Jaques James Fontaine IV and Anne Elizabeth Boursiquot Fontaine, Huguenot Refugees from France who first settled in Devonshire & later in Ireland. It was his dying wish that all members of his family remain close through the ages and to aid one another in times of strife. From his wishes was formed The Fontaine-Maury Society which today is an active thriving organization whose mission is to strengthen the family bonds of the Fontaine and Maury families.
After entering this grave of Harry and Maude gearing, I did an ancestry search and found your entry with burial location unknown. So, I thought you might want to know about this. Is it the same person? Are you related? I am not... Let me know what you would like me to do, i.e. transfer to you, delete, etc.
Thank you again Hello Martha, Thank you as always for you continuing help with "gathering my nuts" Your recent transfer of: Richard Dale Green # 96619068 is very much appreciated. Now we just need to delete: Ralph Gale Green # 96619097 and all is well. Marcia # 47059326
RE: Randolp M. Kabrich My grandfather, Randolph Moore Kabrich did serve in the military during WWI, but I don't ever recall seeing a picture in uniform. I only know that he became very sick on the ship to Europe. I will ask my mother, and then her brother or sister if they know of any pictures. Martha Tothill Woody
William Carr Allen I was notified that William Carr Allen and wife, Susan Sayers Morris Allen, are actually buried in the Millirons and Allen Families Cemetery in Pulaski, Va. These were created by the late Becky Sowers. There are already memorials for William and Susan Allen in that cemetery so Becky's are now duplicates. Please move your image of William and Susan's marriage certificate to the existing memorials in the Millirons and Allen Cemetery and I will delete the old ones. Thanks for all you do for Find a Grave!
I need your help with Mildred Hoilman I have been working on photo request at Ottawa Hills Cemetery in Toledo, OH and have managed to cut the requests in half! They do not allow photographers to photograph the stones so go when they are closed. With over 8000 graves, I've been calling to get exact locations but they know my voice by now. Would you please call their office and get the location for your request? Then I can have the photo within the next week! Thanks for your assistance! (419) 536-8321
