Bio and Links
Bio Photo First of all, if you are looking for a family members grave and find a picture here, please contact me for permission to use it. Whether or not you were directed here by Ancestry or Billion graves.com. Please ask me first. Thank you

Unknown we are to each other...through time our paths have crossed...so as we visit one to another...know as family you shall never be lost.

I consider Cemeteries to be outdoor museums.
I am proud to be referred to as "The Family Historian."


THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7

RE: Laughlin
hi i love doing this, to ''reunite'' people with their loved ones.....i was trying to find on ''google'' anything about the ''finding of the bones in yosemite for carol ann, but nothing came up and i couldn't find anything about any obiturary. i remember a girl being murdered in yosemite but i don't think that this was her......great find, i love to see what you find, if you want to find any special stuff, i'm on ancestry and i do think that the data that is published is pretty good, the census takers might not get all the dates and names right, but the data is really there.more fun for me with you than redoing any data that my father collected at the original sites with the times prior to xerox and internet, again thanks for all your hard work and i'll be in touch..we really should go and hike around a cemetery one of these days, frances ann

RE: You missunderstood
I will remove mine please note on yours that the CADI is under Brown, someone else most likely will put another memorial up if you don't.

You missunderstood
I made the memorial because I did not know about your memorial until yesterday because you have it up under the wrong surname. I would have never made it had I found yours. If you will fix yours to the correct name I will delete mine. It is never about numbers for me but being accurate. Eileen

RE: Grace Terrill
Was not my intention to "steal" it. I'm sorry you're so upset. I just wanted to put the memorial up and used the info I could find. I'll take it down of course. She was married to my great-uncle by the way. Once again, my apologies.

there was already a Find A Grave memorial for her #125547974. Just not correct cemetery. you should merge or remove yours as it is newer.

Recently you transferred 2 memorial to me, those of Wendy Joan Strickland and Brian Wesley Adams. I would also like those of my parents, Ralph C. Strickland and Marjorie Jean Hewes Strickland. They are located right beside Brian and Wendy. Thank you!
