Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been climbing around
on my Family Tree, swinging
on it's branches, and digging
at it's roots for over
30 years, (since 1975).
I have been widowed since 1991, retired in 2005.
I LOVE Find-A-Grave. It is a wonderful
asset to the genealogy world.
If I've created a record that someone
needs to correct, update or add
information, please let me know and
I'll be glad to add your information
for you;... or if the person is your
direct family member, and you would
like to have me transfer "ownership"
of that memorial page to you, please
let me know...If that person is not
directly related to me and they are
directly related to you; I will be
glad to transfer their memorial to
you. However, I want to note:
Nearly all of the memorials that I
have created are connected to my
family tree and are a result of a
lot of years hard work and research.

To all the members who have been
kind enough to transfer "ownership"
of my family members to me....
Find A Grave is one of my favorite
It has given me a place that I can
remember my loved ones and honor
their memory.

If you have time, please leave a flower
for my dear husband, Roy E. Hughes.

I just lost my Daddy & Momma
within 3 weeks. Please be patient,
I am way behind in answering request.

Hunt Requests for Freedonia Cemetery
Mrs. Loretta Hughes,
I "claimed" your request for James and Sarah Hunt. I have searched the entire grounds three times now and had my Mom help me search for James and Sarah. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find their headstones. The cemetery is very old and there are many headstones that are broken, weather-worn, and missing. I did see that you may be interested in any Hunt family headstones. I took pictures of every Hunt headstone that I could find. How would you like me to send these to you? I'm so sorry that I haven't been able to find the headstones you requested. I'm going to look in another cemetery as soon as the ground dries out. Maybe I'll have some luck there. If you have any other requests for my area, just let me know. I'm more than happy to help!

I transferred a gravesite I had made for Miranda. You can use what you can and then delete it. I didn't know there was another one for her.

Loretta, Thank you for making the family connections for me. I think just about everyone buried in Rennie Cemetery is related to my husband. It is nice to see them united.

Jeremiah D. Small # 19584755
Dear LoRetta, Wow, I saw your precious Mom and Dad's memorial, but the photo of your Mom at the top is a twin to you!!
I'm writing about Jeremiah D. Small buried at:
Immaculate Conception Catholic Church Cemetery
New Oxford,
Adams County
Pennsylvania, USA~
His memorial number is 19584755. I am not related to him but have taken an interest in his family. Four of his children drowned. I wanted to add his obituary and the newspaper write up of his death. If you would rather not transfer him to me I totally understand. I just thought I would ask. Thank you and I am truly sorry for your loss of your parents so close together and the loss of your husband. Take Care, Laura Hershey (#47639879)
