I enjoy helping others out. As well as working on my family history. If I can help in my area let me know. I will try to help get your photo and or obituary, if possible.|
However, after going out of my way to get pictures and the such, I would appreciate it if Marcia would stop trolling the findagrave site and nit picking at my and "other" contributors work, effort and help. We are all adults, or so should be.
I am human and do make mistakes, just like the rest of us. (Whether some want to admit it or not is still out for debate. LOL)
If you find a problem, please be kind when asking for corrections to be made. Don't ASSUME that all the information on the memorial was made by me. You know the saying "DON'T ASSUME-it'll make an ass out of you!" LOL Most would agree that a polite contact is the best kind of contact.
In the event you find memorials that need to be linked. Please provide proof that it is husband and wife buried together. I've gotten wrong information. What a headache that was. So please provide proof. Thanks!!
Currently I am inputting information from cemetery books. I am not trying to have a bunch of memorials under my number WHO CARES???
What I care for is to list the forgotten, that didn't have a headstone or the headstone is missing for whatever reason. For those that are searching for loved ones. Not knowing where in the "county" they are resting. Since inputting the cemetery book info. I have had several people contact me because I had solved mysteries where their relatives are buried at. That has been rewarding. It trumps the "negative" ones.
So fellow findagravers, the cemetery entries are a great source for information, if you can't get out to cemeteries, entering from the cemetery books would be greatly appreciated.
Found this wonderful writing by: Thelma Greene Reagan.
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY LEAF
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.
God Bless America!!!

|Michael Burley||Lydia (King) Yoder|
I'm distantly related on my mothers side of the family. Lydia King Yoder is my 2nd cousin 5 times removed. I have no memorabilia.
My grandmother was born in Garden City, MO (near Clearfork) and came to Oregon as a young child.

Greetings, I am not a relative but I was checking for the names of some Yoder's and found this photo you added. It would be very helpful if you know the names of any in this photo that you add them public caption that is shown when you click on viewing the photos connected to an memorial. I usually assume that it is a photo of the individual when only a single person appears but with a group who knows. Thanks for adding photos to the entry. Have a good day, Leo Shelley

|Sharon Lantz||RE: Samuel Haulk|
Barbara Stein (#47224390) just added a memorial to Find a Grave for Mary Ritchie Haulk #171865766, Samuel's wife and Sam Jr's mother. I haven't located burial info for Vada Riggs Haulk yet but the quest never ends.
|Bonnie Lou Stoner||RE: Catharina Eyster/Oyster Yoder|
Yes. They were my fifth great grandparents.

Thanks for taking the time to leave this picture. I do suggest one correction. The name of his wife carved in the tombstone and her tombstone as well is "Catharina Eyster" The little dash in the middle of what appears to be an "L" makes it an "E"
|Connie F||Louis Lambert in Woodlawn - Augusta|
Hi - I found a little write-up about Mr. Lambert's passing and thought you might like to add it to his memorial. Use if you want, it is from the Augusta Eagle of Augusta, IL - issue from April 15, 1954.
Louis Lambert, 49, passed away very suddenly on Sunday night, April 11, at his farm home northwest of Mt. Sterling. His demise came as a distinct shock to his devoted family and their many friends. He had apparently been in his usual health until stricken.
