They come from Pa to NC/TN, from KY to TX.
Willing to take those of my family lines, extended families & those in our Smothers Tribe DNA project to manage when I run across them. I am glad to submit various family memorials as the information & gravestone information is gathered & given to me. I gladly help anyone I can. It is my passion as a genial genealogist to assist others as much as possible.

...I like this I saw on a gal's page recently, "Let's make it a goal to add as much information, as we can possibly document, to these memorials."

Had to snag this from a gal's site.."I enjoy reading contributors Bio's but it's called that for a reason but Not, to use the space to reiterate F-A-G guidelines by a contributor who feels the need to preach to others about how they should make their memorials. Believing we are all adults & know the guidelines most all do act accordingly & do not need to be preached at."

New! snagged this on member's site which I agree with 100%, "Any and all info or pics I have uploaded are meant for SHARING! Family memories were meant to be passed on. I just don't understand anyone that thinks different, if you don't want to share, than DON'T put them on a public site!"
One good note I want to post-From FAG: Death certificates may be added via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. [that should end that discussion]I like DC for their info not always totally correct but most of the time very informative good info and helps as guides especially if someone died young, why, I feel that is important to visitors and family, esp if it is some inherited issue family needs to know.
There is a dna test out now called 23and me that also helps families know of inherited issues esp any fatal ones passed from generations.

I admin our Smothers Tribe DNA project 2002-2015 as well as admin rootsweb & ancestry mail lists & boards to help others. I live on a ranch, am happily retired and besides a heartfelt Passion for Genealogy; I immensely enjoy working with F-A-G and members in helping folks connect with their ancestors. Am happy to make links, corrections & transfers. I am especially appreciative of our gravestone photographers and are owed big Cudos!!
Many kind thanks to all who leave flowers on any of our ancestor memorials!~Happy Trails!

Here are tidbits:JFYI
finding Gravestones without a dob>
when you don't have a dob and only dod & yr, mo, dy-here's a formula to figure out the dob
example: person died May 6 1889 age 71yr 7mo 9dy
1. write year, month day >18890506
2. subtract age at death >> 710709
3. gets this sum >>>>> 18179797
4. subtract 8870 >>>>>> 1817/09/27
= Sept 27 1817
here is another way to do it if the above gets you too frustrated/:-)
freebie calculator someone sent me. http://www.progenealogists.com/birthfromdeath.htm

If you wonder when census are done go here
http://www.archives.gov/genealogy/census/1850-1940.HTML

LDS site has added millions of new records; checking it probably will find a DC for that individual with most all info one needs for any missing dob/dod's.

When giving your Member # to someone be sure to give them your whole link in your browser, otherwise they end up at a dec'd person's memorial; this separates being a member in F-A-G vs being a dec'd person with a memorial where you only need their member # to find them, can't find a F-A-G member though using this method, trust me I've done it, and end up at an unknown person.

"The Dash" is based on that little line on a tombstone, between the dates of birth and death. Ultimately, that dash is a symbol which represents every day they've spent alive on earth. Therefore, how you spend your "dash" is all that really matters. These memorials we do for folks hopefully give a glimpse into their lives of that DASH!

FLASH!!update/after years of research I personally believe WE have finally found our 4x grandad burial site, Capt William Smeathers

Boyd was my grandfather. Rosa, his wife, is buried in Houston. My dad was Royce H. Tucker. He died in 2003. There were three children ; my dad, Minnie Mae, and Andrew Julius(Red). All passed on now. Mary Ann Smothers Kelly was my Great grandmother. John Henry Brown and Caroline Gobble Brown were also my great grandparents.It was interesting to see your bio. I am sort of new at this "stuff".

RE: Memorial# 111267874
Hi,
I can go back and double check, but I think the bottom part of the marker was broken off. The name on it actually just says "Aberne". I made the assumption that it should be Abernethy.
I was planning to go this weekend to fulfill a photo request there. I will find this one and give it another look.

Did you know my grandfather? I use to visit near Halletsville with him, in the early 70's, and we would stay in an old cabin that had a wood stove. Suzie Ellison

RE: Ida McClure
I have the newspaper obituary. I was told by her daughter, my grandma, Willie Mae Woodward Holland that she was jealous of her nurse Pearl who was suppose to be taking care of her but was more taking care of her husband Francis Gauntt. Shortly after her death they married.
Sincerely, Coletta Lee
