I grew up hearing family stories and going to the cemeteries every Memorial Day. It only seems logical that I would develop an addiction to a treasure hunt called genealogy. Documenting cemeteries is a great tool for families to locate their loved ones.
I will be happy to transfer your family memorials upon request.
Gravestone Photo Permission I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Rhoda Alford Hoffman in East Hill Shrine Mausoleum (Memorial# 37733453).
I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Indiana Obituaries, where her obituary will be included. You can see the current collection at http://www.alfordassociation.org/OBITS/INOBIT.htm.
May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:
Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—www.findagrave.com Permission granted by the photographer, K. Pruet [or your full name if you prefer]
And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!
Best regards, Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155) Obituaries Project Manager, Alford American Family Association
Mary Cartwright Smith Folger Good Evening, I just sent some details regarding birth/death dates and locations for my great grandmother. Just wanted you to know I got these details from my Aunt Flora Bell Clark Nelson's Mayflower Society Statement of Line of Eligibility. Thank you. Chryse
C. Enoch Crowell I'm trying to find some documentation on C. Enoch Crowell and his wives and children. With his first wife, you have a son, Arthur Sutton Crowell. My current record has an Arthur and a Sutton as separate people, as well as a daughter named Althea born at the same time as Arthur. I was hoping you could tell me your sources so I can see if my record is in error (it probably is). The record I have for Althea could be a twin, or could be a very mistaken record for Arthur.
Also, Eliza had children by her first husband, Calvin S. Kennedy (also spelled Canady, Kenady, Kenedy). The two I know about are Alice (b 1871) and Thomas (b 1875). Unfortunately for researchers, Eliza's and Enoch's first marriages took place between census years, so any information you have would be greatly appreciated.
RE: Bertha Humphrey HI: Thanks for this. Well, I am a bit stumped..but it won't be the first time..thank you so much for the research. Back to the drawing board. I think it is extremely important to get this right. I keep learning over and over, just because you have the right combination of names. and they can be unusual names, doesn't mean it is right. Thank you again. I appreciate it very much! Cris Brown
