For as long as I can remember my family has routinely visited our local cemetery. Young and old attend to the graves of our ancestors and reflect on those various individuals that have touched our lives. It seems to be a way for the adults to keep those departed individuals fresh in their memories and serves as an opportunity to pass on family history to younger family members. In our case, the cemetery is a very park like setting, located on a lake shore, and is a very pleasant place to visit. |
Over the years I have found that cemeteries are an excellent place to take break as I travel. It's a chance to get out of the vehicle for a while, take a walk in a quiet setting, and to learn a little about the local area. Now, as I make these stops, I try to take random photos of headstones that provide a cross-section of those who are laid to rest there.
It is my hope that the photos and information posted to Find-A-Grave will be of interest to individuals who are working to document local or family histories. Please feel free to contact me if you spot any errors in my postings or if you have photos or information you would like me to add

|Teresa ||Manchester Maxwell correction|
THANKS John for posting the correction to Manchester Maxwell in Citizens Cemetery, Flagstaff, AZ..... the "copy 'n paste" people have somehow managed to distort this Maxwell line and the miss-information seems to have gone viral. Thanks again for the correction. Manchester's gg-grandniece, Teresa

Sorry for not responding. The person that removed the pictures must have mistakenly removed them as they replaced them right away.

Below is a link to your photo: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pis&PIcrid=33357&PIpi=2846094&PIMode=cemetery
The photo is of Colonial Park Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia. I was wondering if you know or remember the names on these stones? I am searching for Mc/MacDonnel & Pelot surnames and believe my ancestors are buried here in a plot known as the Pelot corner. Death dates are pre-1868.

I was hoping you would transfer my Great Grandfathers site to me. He is Lysander Davis #17810669. Haswell, Colorado. I have some information from family records to transfer. Thank you for the great work you do for this site. DDavis
