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. 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, 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.
Found this wonderful writing by: Thelma Greene Reagan.
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.

Please remove the "note about a postcard" from her pictures. This will allow another picture to be added which this area is used for. Thank you

I was hoping that you could transfer Memorial# 93822463 to me? She in my direct line.
|Theron Dowell||Frances Earls|
Wheres the link?
|Charlie Larner||Margarett Cochran|
Hi there I've been doing a lot of research on the Lindsay family and I believe you have Margarett Cochran Memorial# 93822463 as Sarah Memorial# 80169662 and Jonas Memorial# 80169655 Lindsey's daughter when in fact she was actually Sarah's mother who lived with them in Scotland Illinois she was born around 1806 in Pennsylvania and passway in 1892 In Macomb Illinois it would be great if you could edit this where she's in the right place as Sarah's mother not as her daughter thank you appreciate your help

Thanks for double-checking and adding the info! Confusing with diff. dates. Merry Christmas to you also!
|Connie F||RE: Susan E. Lillis|
I knew her parents pretty well. When I had a flower shop, they called near Christmas and wanted to get a grave blanket for her. Otherwise, I would have never known about her.
Thank you for your help with a memorial for her.

The first birth in the town of Macomb was that of a son of Moses Hinton, who was born during the year 1832. It did not live a great while.
The first death was the infant son of Moses Hinton, mentioned above.
