|Bio and Links|
|Several years ago I began researching family history as an alternative form of relaxation. I have always enjoyed reading, sewing and crafts --with the exception of needlepoint that I found tedious. Genealogy research is both challenging and rewarding to me. When I discovered the wealth of information on find-a-grave I joined the community as a way to share some of the facts I had gathered over the years, and perhaps make research a little easier for someone else. I am happy to add links and information for any memorials I manage and would appreciate you using the edit tab for your requests. Please advise your relationship when requesting a memorial transfer. I request credit for information and pictures I have shared in memorials that I have created or manage. Permission is granted to use these pictures and the biographical information for any personal non-commercial use. |
In 2013 I was fortunate to officially retire after over 45 years experience working in health care. Much of this work required me to read the medical records of patients. I mention this, because if anyone has a death certificate that you are having difficulty reading, if you wish to email me a copy and specify what it is you cannot decipher, I am happy to tell you what I see.
A variety of members of the find-a-grave community have graciously left flowers and remembrances on some of my memorials. I deeply appreciate your thoughtfulness, kind words and consideration. One of the primary things I have learned from my genealogy research is that I have found no one whose life was without challenges. The diversity of their trials is vast including death of a parent, step-parent and spouse all at a young age, a governor's pardon but loss of family, death from exhaustion and of course many more unpleasant incidents. Encouragingly each person persevered to overcome the ordeals they were dealt in life and this knowledge has made me better value all contributions to our society, as we all have different talents to share. My realization of the magnitude of problems bravely confronted by our ancestors has helped me on a personal level to keep my expectations in each aspect of my life more realistic, consequently affording me a genuine peacefulness and contentment. I have indeed been blessed.

Hello Susan, thank you for your comment about my entry for World War II veteran Orville Burton. If he is of some relation or friend to you? I'd be more then glad to transfer his memorial owership to you. Best always,
|Debra Stanley||RE: Elihu Farrington|
You are most welcome. :)
|Roy Woodruff||RE: Shaw Cemetery|
Hi Susan, my wife's ancestors settled in Grant, Newaygo, Michigan and gave some of their land to start a new cemetery. It was called Shaw Cemetery at one time but later was renamed Hillside Cemetery. They are all buried there. My guess is that is the cemetery you are looking for.
Good Luck in your search.
Thanks for pointing out the 'triplets'. They have been eliminated and she stands alone! Always willing to have help.

|Robert David Miller||RE: Thanks|
Thank You for the kind works, I'm surprised anyone reads my bio. Today must be luck for me, you're the second person today who has agreed with what I wrote in my bio. With working closely with dead people for the last 15 years, I have come to think of them as my extended family. That's why in what little spare time I have, I enjoy visiting others and leaving a meaningful token and note. That is how I came to meet Agnes. I am part Native American and it is my personal belief that each time a person's name is mentioned, their spirit soars up high. When I visit someone, I speak their name and read their bio, I bet Agnes is soaring high into the heavens. Many people are forgotten by the family but when I visit, they'll know they're not forgotten. Sincerely, Robert Miller
