I am hooked on genealogy and finding my ancestors final resting places. We have tromped through many very old cemeteries across the country in our search.
We have been lucky enough to have had some amazing things happen during our research travels. We have had completely unexpected help from some wonderful people, some we happpily found were related and of course we have had lots of devine intervention and guidance when least expected.
Find A Grave allows me to permanently record my findings so that I can share with others who might also be searching for the same families. Please feel free to contact me if you find we are related.
Find A Grave gives me a way to "Pay it Forward" by helping others find their families resting place. My hope is that maybe some of you that I help will in turn "Pay it forward" by helping others.

Children Thomas Paxton b: Abt 1720 in Erin,,,Ireland Mary Paxton b: in Northern Ireland Jane PAXTON Sarah PAXTON James PAXTON William PAXTON Samuel PAXTON b: 11 JUL 1748 John PAXTON Nothing is known of the early life of Thomas Paxton, nor of the circumstances of his first marriage. He came from Pennsylvania about 1747, and setteld on North River, at the mouth of Buffalo Creek. Hence he was distinguished from his cousins, of the same name, as "Buffalo" Thomas Paxton. He kept a boat yard, and had flour and saw mills. He was also a thrifty farmer, and acquired wealth and infulence. Presbyterian in faith, he was an elder in the old Falling Springs church. (from page 139 by John D. Paxton) My grandfather, Thomas and his brother William were ruling elders of the Falling Spring Presbyterian Church before the time of the American war. After the death of my grandfather, my father succeeded as ruling elder of the same congregation. Thomas was buried at the old Falling Springs cemetery and there his dust reposes. His epitaph is but his name and dates: "Here lies the interred body of Thomas Paxton, who departed this life Sept. 27, 1788, aged 69 years." His first wife lies at his side

Linn Grove Cemetery, Shortridge I wonder if I may have your permission to use your grave marker and/or cemetery photos on my family website. Check it out at www.freienmuth-shortridge.com/shortridge/cemeteries.html. This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.
