Bio and Links
Bio Photo "When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."

I've been working on genealogy for about 10 years now. I stumbled upon this site and so impressed with the idea that I decided to volunteer and add graves as I ran across them. It saddens me to see the state of some of the graveyards I've visited, but I feel like I'm helping save part of history by photographing the stones that are still there. If I can be of any help just let me know.

"Genealogy is the art of collecting tidbits of the lives of those who came before us. And a genealogist sorts, organizes and nurtures this info for the purpose of paying it forward to a future generation's hands. The bucket is in our hands now, for a moment it's "ours", but the rest of the brigade is waiting for that pail of water to be passed to the next soul." Gerblady

if you would like a transfer of a memorial, please use the "edit" button on the memorial and state your relationship. I will gladly transfer memorials within 4 direct generations. Others I will be happy to consider. :-)

RE: Herman Harband
I found an article from 2000 (that listed him as 82, in keeping with the 1918 birth date on the grave that you "own") in the _New York Daily News_ that said he was arrested for throwing acid at police from his apartment. So, that's probably the same way-past-curmudgeony Herman Harband.

Herman Harband
I noticed that the Herman Harband grave that you manage is the only one in that cemetery. Do you have more history on that fellow? I'm trying to figure out if it's actually the same person as this grave (which has no death date, and so is probably not buried there), I know the birth years differ, but that's not that uncommon. I'm hoping that you can shed some light on this.

RE: Edith Lake
Sorry I didn't reply back sooner. The maker to the right of Edith & Joyce/Florence markers is Charles B. Hartwick 1961 and sharing that marker is Agnes E. Hartwick 1966. I don't know if the other 3 plots are above or below this line of 3

RE: Duplicates
I am NOT duplicating YOUR records.

Your statement of "I am disheartened by your bullying tactics" ??? MY bullying tactics??? What are you talking about?? I don't bully anybody. A simple request to you regarding "please add information" is so that I can delete a duplicate is NOT bullying. Do you know what "Please" means?? PLEASE DO FORWARD ALL my emails to you. I'd love for them to see the kind of messages you send to me.

I used the cemetery list at the court house 1885 for the older names in the cemetery.

I did not find a headstone in Little BLue River Baptist Cemetery, but her name was in two listings for this cemetery.
She was not listed in the 1885 reading the the Friends cemetery.
As which is correct, I DO NOT KNOW, I am only able to rely on the oldest reading of the cemetery.

RE: Benoit
Yes, they are on the same marker, front and back. She was his second wife. I always post photos of both sides of a marker on a memorial page (if there is anything engraved on the backside). I'm glad to have been of help.
