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 live in NE WA & at this time not available to search cemeteries nor take photos as physical disabilities hinder me in doing so or would do in a heartbeat. I will submit various family memorials as the information & gravestone information is gathered & given to me or I am able to do so. I gladly help anyone I can, esp along the lines I research to help connect families. 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!"

I admin our Smothers Tribe DNA project 2002-2014 as well as admin at least 50+ rootsweb & ancestry mail lists & boards to help others. I live on a ranch, am happily retired and besides a heartfelt Passion for Genealogy; my beloved family of children, grandchildren, cousins & precious friends, all my critters too esp my sweet little deer herd I've made great friends with over the years; 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.

If you wonder when census are done go here

Here is a link to a You Tube video about reading unreadable tombstones. Very interesting technique.

this one might be very helpful for photographers

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.
LDS research site/new

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 NEWS has bought F-A-G
will remain Free but some changes are coming.**

thanks kindly, More later~~Happy Trails >>>>

Hi Nena, I am just seeing your message today. Violet Lay was my great grandmother, her son Robert Kercher was my grandfather. I love all the information on your page!

RE: Gilliland
You are welcome. I also added David and Janice since they were beside Ulysses and Ellen. I did not link them since I do not know the relationship.

I took the photo of Frank's headstone. Pinie is in row 7. This Frank Porter is buried in row 17. He is buried between Hugh B and his wife Etta R Porter on one side and John L and his wife Lillie H. Porter on the other side. The county index lists Frank and John as sons of Hugh Porter. I hope this helps.

Great Great Grandmother
I am Sherrie Dunlap Watson. My Mother was Mary Helen Bond Watson. Daughter of Cecilia Watson Bond. Mary Jane Smothers Watson was her mother.
Mary Jane was the daughter of Sarah Elizabeth Barnes Smothers and James Franklin Smothers. Very little is said anywhere about my Great Grandmother. I found the only picture any of my family has ever seen on the internet. Thank you for helping put the info out there.

Hi Nena. You wrote me back in December regarding the Greeno family. Sorry it's taken so long to reply -- this is the first day I've been on Findagrave in months. But, yes I am related to the Greeno family and would enjoy collaborating with you! Regards, Jan
