I've been doing genealogy since May of 2000 and I have stumbled upon Find A Grave several times but never really explored it. I've decided it's time to take the plunge and be a contributor to this great endeavor.
I live in Georgetown, Texas but I have tombstone photos from all over the United States. I look forward to sharing what I have with others. I also look forward to being a volunteer.
Esther Daniel photo request Do you have a burial location for Esther? If not the volunteers will need for you to call the cemetery and get the location. They do not give findagrave volunteers burial locations but if you call they should give it to you. Their number is 214 363 5401. Just place the burial location in the plot field which can only be edited when the online memorial is in regular view mode and not the edit mode. This is done below the data fields for burial location. thanks! I can photograph the grave within a few days with a location.
RE: John Carl Spangler Tombstone Picture I just created a memorial for Emelia Spangler. I also posted a picture of her marker. Unfortunately, the inscription is hard to read - background and inscription are almost the same color.
RE: John Carl Spangler Tombstone Picture Hi Ken, I contacted Rose City Cemetery and got a reply back. Yes, Emilia Spangler is also buried at Rose City. I will drive back over there in the next couple of days and take a picture of her grave marker.
Evergreen Photos Ken, once again, thank you so much for getting the photos for me at Evergreen. I was so glad to get the pictures of John and Virginia Farris. But the one of Lelia Strickland Olsen was a real "find" for me. As you can see from the inscription on her stone, her husband Herman Olsen was a sea captain who was lost at sea in 1945 and we were not even sure where Lelia was buried. Just when I think I have located all my relatives who are buried in Evergreen, I continue to find more.
Thank you so much for the photos of the Boss' in Evergreen Cemetery. I was unable to request a photo of Virgina Boss Steele and William Cooper Steele when I made the other requests because I ran into my weekly limit - did you happen to see any of them when you were there? I will be making the requests when my week is up.
Evergreen Photos Ken, thank you so very much for taking the time to go to Evergreen. I have been there once and it is such a very large cemetery it took me several hours just to find one or two graves. You said you could not find Henry Marshal Read. Don't make a special trip back there, but if you ever happen to be back at Evergreen, try looking in 14-17. He should be buried close to Oma Turley Whitten Read, his wife. I don't understand the numbering system and am grateful for any you were able to find. Many thanks again!! B
