Ancestors & relatives never really go away, they get buried, cremated or vaulted in a sacred place for us to visit and remember. After all, where would we be without our ancestors? As much as it hurts to lose a loved one, we must be thankful for the time we had together. These memorials in FIND A GRAVE are growing by a million a month and make it easier for the world to find & see the memorials of their loved ones. Through these memorials, they live on.
Passionate is an understatement, Genealogy & Cemeteries are a big part of my life. Have 35 years of sometimes obsessive research under my belt. I'm one of the very few volunteers for Madison County, NY which is 662 square miles with 285 Cemeteries and endless hills (up to 1800 ft) & valleys, so go easy on me folks.
Genealogically I picked up where my Grandfather and his father left off. I specialize in Madison County, NY and surrounding areas and Warren County, NY. If you find your relative in my memorials and would like transfers or to add bios, or corrections let me know. All my photos are free for distribution.

Though it feels like "good-bye", we know that in reality, for those of us who have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ it is merely, "see-you-later"

Taphophilia is a interest for and enjoyment of cemeteries. Taphophilia involves epitaphs, gravestone rubbing, photography, art, and history of deaths. The singular term is a taphophile.

RE: McDaniels
I am having a hard time documenting that Phebe Townsend was the daughter of Mehitable and Samuel McDaniel. What do you suggest?

RE: McDaniels
I have some questions on Phebe that I don't want to ask in a public forum.

RE: John A Covert
Was re-reading your profiles on Wm Covert and his 2 wives.

There is a report in the Milton, Northumberland County Pennsylvania on the drowning death of Mrs Mary Covert - says she left husband and 4 children.

It is in the "States Advocate" 20 Sep 1827. You can see the image of this page as below:

RE: John A Covert
I can only encourage you to have a DNA test done.

I've been trying to identify my Moses Covert's line (1800 PA-1876 Lycoming Co, PA) for years and now am just waiting for a DNA match with a 2-3 or 4th cousin to make a breakthrough.

Denise whose file you have no doubt been reading on is a good genealogy friend of mine
as for many years we thought we must be related - her line is the Luzerne Co ones - but DNA results do not show any matching DNA between us.

We suggest you tested with, they have special pricing from time to time.

Thanks for staying in touch.

Memorial 52980918 posted 5/20/2010 for Dorothy E. Forster Hawkins Kittle is correct and yours but there is another memorial 101556185 posted 12/1/2012 that needs to be removed for the same person.

Your memorial 52159020 posted 5/9/2010 for Priscilla Ann Hall Caldwell is correct but another memorial 10121606 was posted on 11/24/2012 just as Priscilla A Hall which is a duplicate and has incorrect info. Hope you can get the other poster to remove their memorial.

Your memorial 52077550 for Margaret Helena Henry Kiley dated May 29, 2010 is the correct memorial but there is a duplicate memorial 101213721 (dated 11/24/2012) that needs to be removed. Hope you can work this out.
