I enjoy helping others out. As well as working on my family history. If I can help in my area let me know. I will try to help get your photo and or obituary, if possible.|
However, after going out of my way to get pictures and the such, I would appreciate it if Marcia would stop trolling the findagrave site and nit picking at my and "other" contributors work, effort and help. We are all adults, or so should be.
I am human and do make mistakes, just like the rest of us. (Whether some want to admit it or not is still out for debate. LOL)
If you find a problem, please be kind when asking for corrections to be made. Don't ASSUME that all the information on the memorial was made by me. You know the saying "Don't assume- it'll make an ass out of you!" Most would agree that a polite contact is the best kind of contact.
In the event you find memorials that need to be linked. Please provide proof that it is husband and wife buried together. I've gotten wrong information. What a headache that was. So please provide proof. Thanks!!
Currently I am inputting information from cemetery books. I am not trying to have a bunch of memorials under my number WHO CARES???
What I care for is to list the forgotten, that's didn't have a headstone or the headstone is missing for whatever reason. For those that are searching for loved ones. Not knowing where in the "county" they are resting. Since inputting the cemetery book info. I have had several people contact me because I had solved mysteries where their relatives are buried at. That has been rewarding. It trumps the "negative" ones.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY LEAF
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Ralph Jones, You said you have his obit or bio. Would you be willing to share it with me? Ralph is my 1st cousin and I would love to know more about him. Thanks

I noticed you had posted a photo to Granville's memorial, so thought you might be interested in one of him with his wife. I posted to their memorials, but it is also available for sale on eBay. I am not the seller, but here is the link:

Thanks to Find a Grave, I recently discovered that my dad's great-great-great grandparents, Andrew and Sarah Matheny are buried at Moore Cemetery near Littleton, Illinois. My dad, who is 92, and I would love to personally visit their grave and take our own picture. We were able to locate the cemetery several months ago, but it appears to be on private land with "no trespassing" signs in the vicinity. Any ideas about how we could gain access? Thanks for your help. Please email if you have information.

I'm curious about the photo you've posted on the memorials of all the Hines "children". It's a wonderful photo! I'd love to know more about it. Their mother and my great-grandmother were sisters. Are you related? If not, can you tell me how I can contact the owner of the photo?
Cathy Patten Haar
I am on vacation and only have my IPad and can't place the headstone . Go ahead and copy it over to the other memorial. Credit the photo to Jean Pinick who took the photo. She and I worked together on this cemetery.
No, I am not related to them and have no idea of who might be.
Sorry and good luck! Am sure there is someone out there that would love to have the old picture!
