Bio Photo "When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."

I've been working on genealogy for about 20 years now. I stumbled upon this site and so impressed with the idea that I decided to volunteer and add graves as I ran across them. It saddens me to see the state of some of the graveyards I've visited, but I feel like I'm helping save part of history by photographing the stones that are still there. If I can be of any help just let me know.

"Genealogy is the art of collecting tidbits of the lives of those who came before us. And a genealogist sorts, organizes and nurtures this info for the purpose of paying it forward to a future generation's hands. The bucket is in our hands now, for a moment it's "ours", but the rest of the brigade is waiting for that pail of water to be passed to the next soul." Gerblady

if you would like a transfer of a memorial, please use the "edit" button on the memorial and state your relationship. I will gladly transfer memorials within 4 direct generations. Others I will be happy to consider. :-)

Theresa Plessinger (56885144) maiden name

I put in a change to the name for Theresa the other day to change it to True. However, I have done some more research and it turns out that she was a distant cousin to Morrison Plessinger and her maiden name is in fact, Plessinger as well. Morrison's father was Hugh Plessinger who's father Philip was the brother of Theresa's father Jacob Plessinger. This is not the only time when one of Hugh's children married one of Adam's. Theresa's sister Laura married Loraine Plessinger also one of Hugh's sons. I guess this was not an uncommon practice back in the day.

The memorial has been complected with all the known information with the exception of the linking of your memorial to Martha Jane Dinkins Palmer, # 60474248. Your cooperation in this matter has been outstanding & very much appreciated.

Raymond and Marcella Harris
I noticed you input a lot of names for Ebenezer Cemetery. I show that Raymond Harris, dod 1977 and wife, Marcella, dod 1988 were buried there. Do you have access to records?

Thanks for your help.

RE: Ebenezer
You're welcome. I photographed the whole cemetery about three years ago when I was there to photograph some relatives' stones--it's not very large. I don't mind contributing the pictures, if you don't mind my doing so.
