Rudeness will be ignored.

I enjoy documenting graves so that others can find their kin easily & accurately. It is an opportunity to honor those who have died as well as give current and future generations access to information on the life of a forebear or other relative.

Thanks to everyone who has sent encouraging and positive thoughts! I don't always have time to answer everyone back, but please know you too are appreciated. :)

With only a few exceptions, I will no longer enter cause of death info nor death certificate numbers.

Duplicates: It's never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please use the SAC and let me know.

If I enter a memorial on May 1st for Jane Doe and then someone else enters another memorial for the same Jane Doe on May 15th, the one entered on May 15th is the duplicate, not mine, regardless of how much info is or isn't on the memorial.

Transfers: I am not one of those people who refuse to transfer in or out of guidelines. Ask and ye shall receive, unless you're 1 of those people who don't transfer out of guidelines. Please note, if we are both related to the person in the memorial I will only transfer if you are related to a closer degree.

If you have any questions about family history research, or need help navigating this wonderful site, I always enjoy the opportunity to help you. Please contact me via the SAC tab on any memorial I have created.

RE: Thank you
Your very welcome, I had been looking for her memorial since the first time your request was added and walked that section 20 times at least. Finally seen Louis's marker and there she was beside him. It was a good day.

RE: Thank you
You are most welcome. I also took a photo of his wife Irma. I will create a memorial and link them together. Take care.

John & Fannie Thompson
The position shown in the photograph is next to the headstone for Joseph Thompson. It appeared as if someone had been to the cemetery marking the 70 or so graves without headstones with orange spray paint.

John & Fannie Thompson
Hey William - My wife and I walked the relatively small Abilene BC Cemetery this morning and sadly report there are no headstones for either John or Fannie, The only Thompson here is a Joseph E. and the 1930 census shows John & Fannie living with a Joseph E Thompson. (1920 census showed them living with a grandson)

I have added a photo that states there is no headstone at this location for these folks that passed the middle of the last century.
