|Bio and Links|
My interest in genealogy began 64 years ago when I followed my mother's and grandmother's conversations as they traced relationships of their friends and family. |
My memorials are family members, then relatives of relatives. My childhood piano teacher and other early settlers, friends of my parents and grandparents were next. Being from a small Nebraska town, this can be quite involved. But interesting. Very interesting.
As a Find A Grave photo volunteer for Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery, I sometimes stumble - literally - over a neglected or forgotten grave marker. I add information or create memorials for the lives I discover in this way.

Thank you for taking the time to get a picture of my first cousin's gravesite.

Thank you very much for taking a photo of my great-grandfathers headstone. It is easier to read and locate if I ever make it up to Portland again. My family has very little information about Michael and this certainly helps.
|Gary Peifer||RE: Martha McFarland|
I am the one who took and added the photo.
I will ask Reta to delete her memorial.
I photographed the entire cemetery between 2012 & 2013 trying to find some relatives. Now I am just trying to eliminate the duplicates as a project.
How are you related?? My daughter-in-law's grand parents are Cory who live in LeRoy, McLean Co., IL.
I also went to school with Penny McFarland Radamaker. Don't know if you know her.
Thanks very much for the return

|Nathan Haines||RE: Carrie Moffett|
I guess I don't understand your reply?? I am guessing that my previous message may have offended you in some way but I may be mistaken about that? I am not a very smart person! I try to be helpful and do things right and say things right but sometimes I come across pretty rude or something because I am such a dumb dumb in trying to say things perfectly right??
Anyway, if someone told me that I put a picture on a page that does not belong there I would take a look at it and see if the person knew what they were talking about and then I would delete the picture if I thought they were right.
You did not delete the picture you put on that page for little Carrie Moffett so I am guessing that you feel that I am wrong, that I don't know what I am talking about and you think you are right and that your picture should stay on that page? Right?
I have studied that Moffett family at length. I did not just add a couple people from that family by going along and adding a name and date of death from gravestones not knowing a single thing about that family like you said that you did.
I know about the Metro Cemetery and all their cemeteries that they oversee. I know about their web site. I have been to their main office numerous times. I used to be the head of the research committee for the Genealogical Forum so it is not like I am somebody that does not know anything about research and don't know what I am doing, ok?
What do I need to do to help you see that you have a picture on the wrong page? I guess I could go over to Metro and get them to make me copies of the Lot that the Moffett's are in and I could print out a bunch of census pages and obits from newspapers and whatever else I need to document and prove that the C. Moffett in Lone Fir is not Carrie Moffett that you put the gravestone picture of onto Find A Grave.
Do I really need to go to that much trouble? Is there anyway I can help you? Maybe if I did some research for you to help you with things you are having trouble solving in your research you might be more willing to help me with my one simple request?
Hope you have a really wonderful day today.

I noticed you added a picture of little Carrie Moffett's mother Charlotte's gravestone to Carrie's page. I reckon you may have noticed that I added the pic of Charlotte's gravestone to Charlotte's page, maybe you did not notice?
All Charlotte's gravestone says is C. Moffett and that she died in 1915 and I imagine you figured that since they buried Charlotte under her previous married name and not her 2nd marriage name, like they should have done, than you probably figured I screwed up and this stone is actually for little Carrie and not for Charlotte, but alas, it is not Carrie's gravestone, since the stone does have Charlotte's date of death on it and Carrie died before 1900, ok?
Carrie's Find A Grave #= 89545902
Carrie's father died in 1878 and a story written about him says he had only one daughter and she died before he did.
Carrie's mother is on the 1900 census and it says she was the mother of 6 children and only 2 were still living. It is written in more than one place that those two surviving children were two of her sons, James and William.
So, if the C. Moffett stone was for Carrie then why does it give the date of death on that stone as 1915?
Do you have any proof at all that Carrie died in 1915 when there is all kinds of evidence that she did not live nearly that long?

Thank you so much for posting the obit and photo of John and Mary Jane Rossiter McMonies" death and grave. I have been looking for that information for some time. I have pictures of other family members in Lone Fir but somehow missed them. What a wonderful "hobby" you have.(I foster kittens). I always love roaming in old cemeteries but you are doing a wonderful service for us amateur genealogists. Bless you
