Bio and Links
The descendants of the old settlers, those who cleared the land and first upturned the wild sod to the sun, should see that the doings of those early years are fittingly remembered and recorded.
It was once remarked by a great writer that those who take no interest in the deeds of their ancestors are not likely to do anything worthy to be remembered by their descendants.

Please leave flowers or memorials on my memorials, I believe everyone deserves flowers, and I have a great family. Thank you in advance.
A BIG thank you to those who send histories, death notices, obits and links to add to the memorials. They are wonderful additions.
You may use my pictures and information for your family trees but I do like credit. This is all put on findagrave for your family trees because so many people have helped me with mine. Thank you.

Please read Find A Grave's Transfer Requirements before requesting a transfer "THE FIND A GRAVE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS ARE: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for a transfer BUT PLEASE do no ask for a transfer that is not within these guidelines and PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED.
Putting requests on this site you will be ignored, and erased. Ignorance is not bliss it is just embarrassing for you.

For extended family members you can add
Virtual Cemeteries as we have done.

PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB ON THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE OF THE MEMORIAL TO SEND CORRECTIONS AND REQUESTS FOR TRANSFERS. Will gladly add any obits and will add links to family members. "

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out On polished, marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our heart contracts and beat a pulse Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled One hundred years ago Spreads out among the ones you left Who would have loved you so.I wonder if you lived and loved,I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you.

Thank you for deleting your memorial for him at Riverside National and allowing me to move mine there even though mine was a burial unknown.

RE: Ethel Billings
None of what you sent supports your correction.

You sent a correction stating she was born in Lewis and Clark County, Montana and died August 9, 1922 in the City of Los Angeles.

The sources you sent me were a CA death index (which supports the death date and county only). CA death records state the county, not the city, so that would support Los Angeles County, not the City of Los Angeles.

The enumerated data from two census records show she was born in the state of Montana and neither of them state she was born in Lewis and Clark County.

Lastly, copying the information from her mother's Find a Grave memorial does not provide proof of her burial at Live Oak. She is not on the cemetery transcription, so I'm requesting your source since you created the record. Thanks, LG

Hiram Olmstead memorial, Madison Co
Barbara: the bio indicating that the Hiram who died in 1817, civil war vet, was the son of Jane and George Olmstead seems to be in error; Jane and George's son Hiram died in 1878 and is buried in St. Peter's churchyard, Bronx, where the family lived, Helen S. Wilson
