|Bio and Links|
I fell into this ancestry thing 4 yrs ago when a cousin in Brazil asked for the dates of our grandmother's birth & death. It snowballed from there into family trees, etc. and researching our history, both for my husband and myself. Then when I began photographing graves, someone from RAOGK (Random Acts of Geneological Kindness) told me if I was doing my family graves then it would benefit others to photograph graves in the same cemetery! So another hobby was born as if I didn't have enough to do anyway! I am recovering from breast cancer & I find (& have always found) cemeteries restful, interesting and peaceful on a sunny day...and this gives me a chance to have a hobby that I am passionate about that I can work on at my own pace. Thanks to all the Find A Grave volunteers!|
By the way, I am very pleased to make links, suggestions & transfers that are reasonable.
Please keep requests within the Findagrave transfer policy... namely parents, siblings, grand & great grandparents or 1st generation aunts & uncles. I try to do the best I can with photos but our weather in Oregon this year (2011) in particular has been wet & soggy. Many of the graves are covered in mud or wet when I photo. If you need a better picture I would not be at all adverse to re-doing if you are a family member. Or if you want to take a better photo you are always welcome to add it to my entry & I can delete my picture.

Thank you! Yes, my grandfather remarried after his first wife died. The gravestone at Mount Calvary had already been marked with his name.
|Cherie J.||RE: Foley|
How kind you are! Thank you for your great thoughtfulness in accepting my submissions regarding Joseph P. Foley and John G. Foley.
And thank you also for the photographs of the signs on the crypt of their parents, Dr. Jim Foley and Thelma Foley. (What a coincidence that you were in the mausoleum when you received my two emails!)
With warm regards,
Sorry to hear about your husband in hospital...hope it is not too serious?

Sorry...actually I just sent the obituary location as proof of the edits I did on her memorial. John
there was quite an article and even a photo of him and mother. He was playing camp out in the yard in a tent when the accident happened and his body was found after the fire was out... can you imagine leaving a child that age with matches and candles? you can add it if you like.

I've just found the pictures you've included of the headstone belonging to my Great Grandparents. We take care of their stone; cleaned, raised, trimmed and have pictures. While I genuinely appreciate finding pictures on this website, I'm concerned with how it was cleaned to obtain this specific picture. Everyone please be careful. Stay away from metal brushes, harsh cleansers and scrubbing. There's a proper manner to protect the legacy that represents our ancestors. Our family and our geneology is precious to us. The cost to repair can be expensive. Thank you.

Thanks for the note. I felt as if I had seen every crypt of that size and style. I will have to try again.

Thank you very much for your persistence. This new edit tab was unclear to a lot of people, but does save some time if you can figure it out. We appreciate your assistance in the memorials for our relatives.
Thanks for your contributions.
