Serial Duplicators will be rounded up by the FAG police, stripped naked, and shot with volleys of rubber bands. :-(


*Oh, by the way, most of the memorials I created are made-up and fictitious. I just did it to get to over 50,000 entries which was supposed to qualify me for a prize ribbon of achievement for FAGer's. Found out it was an untruth! Not nice to lead one astray. I really wanted that ribbon of achievement as it would go down in history as my finest hour.

If you can't say please or thank you, don't ask me! OK?

Perhaps you have seen me at the cemetery in my 1956 Cadillac hearse. Runs great, has some rust, equipped with casket, plastic flowers, and funeral cones. Bose speakers behind the front grill that blasts out tunes from the Grateful Dead.

Have you ever noticed the absence of toilets at most cemeteries? When nature calls, what is one to do? Thank God for corn fields and big trees.

Isn't it weird that we FAG volunteers want to be in cemeteries before we have to?

I am proof that if you do too much with FAG, it will cause brain damage, cause infidelity, and create insomnia.

People ask me to do so many transfers, I think I should be working for a bus company.

In case you are wondering, I am related to each and every one of the people I have memorialized. Yes, my My Family Tree is over 52,500 souls and some red-necks. Democrats are buried with blue tombstones and the Republicans are buried in red. It is fun to go to the local cemetery and see all those red markers, sprinkled in with just a few blue one's.

THINK OF FINDAGRAVE as a Facebook for the Dead!

Antique stores sell dead people's stuff. Just like death, all deals are final, no returns unless you are Jesus!

An early farmer in Iowa used to bury the remains of animals, birds, fish, and an occasional vagrant in order to fertilize the soil. This particular farmer always had bumper crops and the rumor was that he and the wife murdered the wild life in the area, buried the remains in the soil, resulting in the best corn crop in the county. (Neighbors said that late at night they could see the dude out in the field with only a flashlight and a shovel.) His name was Osama Bin Farmer with ties to a fanatical Methodist group.

Once upon a time I happened to step on a used condom at a local cemetery. It stuck to my shoe and accompanied me home. Needless to say, the wife was a bit suspicious as to where I had been for two hours! I told her that apparently not everyone at the cemetery is resting or dead! What is this younger generation coming to? Condom's in the cemetery? Seems like a creepy place to do it to me. Now, I check my shoes when leaving the final resting place of the village.

RE: Gopher Football
Rose Bowl? That's a semi-final College Football playoff venue this year.

If they win, they will play for the national championship.

You have high hopes. I'll be happy if the can beat Wisconsin and Iowa this year. Nebraska again too.

Sooo confused....
My dear Hemingstein, I have run across a conundrum. Perhaps you can help me solve the mystery?

St. Johns Cemetery:
Anneta McBride 1863-1933 #87285850
Robert McBride 1861-1905 #87285805

Plankinton Cemetery:
Annettia E. McBride unk-19 Dec 1883 #117141283
Robert McBride unk-16 Dec 1905 #117141965

Do you think these graves were moved from one cemetery to the other? Their son Earl McBride is buried in the Plankinton Cem., if that helps.

Any light you can shed on this situation would be most appreciated!

Bugbee Photos
Thank you for creating listings for Charles H and Ellen A Bugbee (Elmwood Cemetery, Rockford MN). I am currently researching the Bugbee family and appreciate the new information and seeing photos of their gravestones. I was wondering if I could have your permission to add your photos to my tree on, with a photo credit to you which I am glad to add in any wording that you prefer. If it is ok, I would be very grateful, and if not, I understand as well and will respect your wishes. In any case, I appreciate your efforts and hope you keep enjoying your adventures in America's graveyards as much as your bio seems to reflect that you do. Kindly let me know. - Allison

RE: Claude Upside Down!
Thank you Larry for helping me with fixing it. Teamwork is always a good thing! I figured out how to fix the others. It seems like I need to load them to my comp desktop, and then to the memorial page. I've not a clue as to why some of them went sideways and others didn't, but its all good. Have a great day!

Thanking you for this one as well. Was just wondering if these graves are clearly marked. So if a person were to go would a person easily find them. Again thank you. This is an amazing thing you do I live in Canada . So very far away and this is the only place i can connect with my family. :)

I am enjoying your evolution. Doesn't that mean
"third generation of Deutsch seamstresses casting stones"?
