Bio and Links
I can honestly blame my sister and aunt! They have started me on the road of searching cemeteries for deceased family members. Combining the love of cemeteries and genealogy has been an addiction of mine for many years. Sharing brings us into contact with those family members we have not yet met.

I am researching the Richard Ellwood family from New York. My sister is researching my father's line -- Deacon Benjamin Carter from Connecticut.

need location of Brace Cemetery
Hi Charla -
I see that you posted pictures of the Brace Cemetery in Franklin Township, Luzerne County, PA. My husbands grandmother's maiden name was Brace, and he has many anccestors buried there. We were thinking of taking a drive up to Luzerne County this Saturday to see the cemetery, but I cannot find any information on it's location. can you tell me an address, or cross roads? Is it under a different name?
Any information you can provide would be appreciated!
Thank you!

Levi Emig
Thank you for connecting Levi to his parents. I went to the cemetery with Ellen, a descendant of Levi's brother George. She was thrilled to see Levi's tombstone. We looked for the tombstone for Levi and George's sister Sarah Catherman and could not find her tombstone. Do you have a map of the cemetery? Jane

Joan Grisamer Stone
I created a memorial and linked her to Pauline Ellwood Grisamer. The obituary I found for Joan listed her as the daughter of Java Jack Grisamer and Pauline O. Elwood (?) Grisamer (who later divorced). Would you like this memorial transferred to your care, as you are researching this family?

Lucia Malinda Ellsworth Shottenkirk
Hi Charla, do you know much about Lucy's father Wm A Ellsworth? If not, I may have some info for you. I don't want to ramble on if you already have him figured out. :)
You can write to my email if you have time to respond.
All the best, Debra

A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent edits to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

New System for Memorial Edits deployed by Find A Grave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you.
Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names / dates / places / plot #s.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section or do linking.

Martha Sparks
Will you please omit William Newton Sparks from Martha Sparks's profile. He is her step son.

John Sparks's first wife is Martha. His second wife is Martha. William Newton Sparks is oldest of John's ten children. I think John's first wife is buried somewhere in Indiana.

So far I found John's 8 children's burial sites. Now,two more to go. Five of them are buried in California. I am looking for James Henry Sparks and Andrew C Sparks.

If you can help me to find James and Andrew, it would be wonderful.

Thank you!

William, Mary Belle, & Margaret Hargis
The relationship between Margaret E. and William L. Hargis would be man and wife. She is aka "Sue" E. Davault.

Arthur F. Hargis can't be the son of Mary B. and William L. Hargis if the death dates given are correct. Mother Mary died Jan 19, 1883 and Arthur was born Nov 11, 1883 - born about 10 months after his mother's death.

Rebecca Hurst
Hello, I was wondering if you could shed some light on Rebecca J. (Fulton) Hurst, Find A Grave Memorial# 10174530.

I am wondering if she was Rebecca Woods. My grandmother Ethel (Warnick) Boswell was briefly married to Henry P. Hurst. His parents were Rebecca Woods and James Hurst of Cedar Bluffs, Saunders, NE. I found their names on the marriage certificate of Henry and Ethel.

Does this make sense to you?

I know that's a very small community as my ggrandparents the Kubicek's and Novak's came from this area...

Thank you for your assistance..

RE: Gaylord Cooke - Mission cem
Hi, Thanks for noticing that. I always go with the year on the marker unless I have very solid information otherwise. It seems like about half the people in the 1800s couldn't quite keep track of the year they were born. I don't have any better information than what a cemetery person gave me. So I would just insert the month and day, if it was my record, and leave the year matching the stone. (My grandfather died in 1949 and it caused a huge blow-up in the family when the grave marker was inscribed with 1862 for the birth year. One faction said 1861 while the others stood with 1862. People get just crazy about this.)
