Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for most of my life thanks to my Aunt Iola who wrote and contributed to a number of family histories. Lewis and I have always taken pictures of grave markers as a means of documenting our families. Last year this interest took us to Hants County, Nova Scotia. I have been posting the cemetery pictures we took on Ancestry and recently received a note suggesting I post my pictures on Findagrave and here I am!

I would be happy to transfer any memorial page that I created to anyone who is closer to the person honored than I am. I welcome corrections and am happy to make additions.

Do you know anything about his wife Agnes? All I can find is a cemetery note that she is in grave 8a, which is Arno's.

Edward Abraham Family - Granite Hill
Is this a family you're researching? There are two other graves in the same lot (the entire lot was purchased by Edward). One is an unknown (no marker and records were destroyed), the other is Albert Abraham, son of Mr/Mrs CE Abraham, aged 6 months, DOD 25 Aug 1896. Wondering if CE might be
Ellsworth C? If not, do you know of any other Abrahams?

RE: Charles Morris Armstrong
Dear Barbara,
Since making another site for Charles Morris Armstrong is frowned upon, should I attach the photo on his father's headstone, since they are on the same marker? It appears to be a 4 sided rectangular prism with the father Charles Morris on one side and the son Charles Morris on one of the other sides. Thanks for responding so quickly.

RE: George W. Tallmon (Tallman)
Thanks so much for the information. I saw that the picture in your memorial said San Jose, California, on it. I couldn't figure out why there were two memorials for the same person. Thanks for clearing that up.

Charles Morris Armstrong
Dear Barbara,
I have found an additional headstone for Pvt Charles Morris Armstrong on the side of his father's headstone (Charles Joshua Morris) at the Loyal Hill Cemetery in Nova Scotia, Canada. Is there a way to list that he has this additional headstone on I'm new to this but it has helped me make so many connections. Thank you in advance!

George W. Tallmon (Tallman)
I hope that you can settle my confusion about George Tallmon. There is your webiste that says that he is buried in Iowa (#89889747). There is another memorial (#73205954) for Lieut. George Tallmon that says that he is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in San Jose, California. The picture in your memorial shows a picture of a grave marker in at Oak Hill and says San Jose on it. Do you have any evidence that he is buried in Iowa? Thanks.

Thompson and Hyde
I came across your virtual cemetery for Thompson and Hyde as I was searching for more information on Galpin. I am the granddaughter of Fred Barnard and great granddaughter of Mary Elizabeth Hyde and so the Hyde and Thompson people are in my direct line. Could we communicate by direct email? Mine is mathmac at

Stonecutters in Josephine County
We had a family of 5 brothers - Al, Lum, GW, James and Joseph Jones - who emigrated slowly from Arkansas, with stops in several places (all the kids were born along the way, in different states). Two worked almost strictly in marble, and had their own quarry. Two worked primarily in granite, and one wasn't choosy. My favorite is GW who did beautiful, simple, but massive stones in granite. Wish he was still around to do mine! I can spot one of his markers in a heartbeat. All of their sons did stonework, as well, but of course, needed another income, since tombstones won't usually feed a family. A couple of them went to the wrong side of the law, but then that doesn't bother me - love discovering the stories in cemeteries. And both times I've done books of JoCo history, I've ended up meeting more of the families and learning new stories. "History" is really two words - Hi, Story!
