Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sheri and I am a genealogist, thus the nickname "Gen-Sher" because I like sharing my genealogy knowledge.

Find a Grave in creating little miracles everyday by connecting the living with their ancestors, relatives and friends. I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES.

By adding cemetery memorials to Find a Grave, I am trying to add correct birth and death information, including places, parents, spouse and children (and photos when possible). Sometimes the stone just has the years (i.e. 1876-1947). If I can find the birth and death dates on Ancestry, I like to add that information, too. I also try to find obituaries, then add links to other family members.

In placing obituaries on the memorials, I am attempting to provide families and researchers with additional information on the individual. Obituaries published in newspapers are in the public domain and as such, anyone can legally post an obituary and its photo. There are no copyrights unless noted in the obituary. I hope I don't offend anyone. If I do, I am sorry and will gladly delete information.

If you find mistakes on a memorial, please let me know by telling me in "Edit" on that memorial. I will gladly correct mistakes.

If you'd like to manage a memorial I posted, please let me know by asking under "Edit" on that memorial. I will transfer to any relative or friend, unless the memorial is for one of my own relatives.

I have always found cemeteries a place of serenity and meditation, away from the busyness of the everyday world. To me they are very sacred, as the lives of those buried there are sacred.

By sharing information of those who have "gone before", we are honoring their lives. Some people live and die without any fanfare. This site gives the dead their "Notice".

RE: Julius Matthews
Thank you very much for the memorial transfer. I have a few more family members in the same cemetery. I will send those requests later today.

Morgan Davies #36305457

I noted you posted a PHOTO for a Morgan Davies that looked just like a Morgan Davies in the book Utah Prominent Men & Pioneers. However, the person it was linked to has the birth place listed as 1841 in Ireland and the one in the photo you posted I think is from 1847 Wales.

Would you mind looking at the memorial and photo I posted that looks similar and let me know what you think? I have Davies relatives but not this one. The other information in the book on him states:

Son of Thomas and Gwenllian Davies of Wales. Born May 10, 1847, in Wales. Mormon Pioneer who came to Utah 1853.

Married: Annie Keep March 1, 1865, Lehi, Utah (daughter of James Joseph Keep and Anne Miller of that place, pioneers 1852). She was born April 26, 1837.

Their children:
Thomas James, married Alice Earl;
Edward, married Lillian Diamond;
Lucy L, married Joseph T. Harris;
Daniel William, died;
Morgan Alford, married Louise Walsh;
Gwenllian, married Frank A. Sange.

Family home Salt Lake City. High priest. Contractor.

Maybe you can send this on to the person who posted the memeorial if you can't figure it out.

RE: Ida Snowberger
If the memorial had been transferred to you, the originator of the memorial will have to delete it.
Please let me know of the outcome.

You should let Find A Grave know of the problem.
