Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started visiting cemeteries during Sunday drives with my family when I was a child. We would often make a game of finding the oldest date on the headstones.

In college I provided the wheels for many a road trip to escape campus life. It was then that I learned to visit a cemetery with a flashlight just after dark so that I could cast a shadow across a nearly smooth stone and be able to read the shadows created.

There are some towns I am unable to drive through without stopping to visit the grave of a family member or friend; leaving the requisite flower or penny or even a stone as a sign that someone remembers and came to pay respect.

Some cemeteries are enjoyed because they command such spectacular views, whether in countryside or city.

While I love doing my own geneaology, I also enjoy helping others with theirs. Cemeteries and headstones quickly become a natural fit with such endeavors.

Since joining the Find A Grave community I have ventured into even more cemeteries than ever and have learned to appreciate a lot about my local community, its history and families.

As a career biologist, I also enjoy finding many unique plant communities existing in some of the oldest cemeteries in my locale. The wildlife making their homes or their livings in cemeteries is fascinating to watch. Also, some large cemeteries contain the most wonderful tree specimens around.

It surprises me how often searching for dead persons I find and learn to appreciate the living ones; beit long distant family members, local cemetery workers and walkers or neighbors, and other volunteers with Find A Grave.

Keep up the good work and happy hunting, Everyone!

Are you related to Jackson Wisehart? He is my 1st cousin 4x removed. If you are related to him I would like to see what information you have on him.

Thanks,

RE: We may be distant cousins
Hello Carol - Good of you to write me. Yes, we are cousins. Ida Mae Allshouse was the daughter Ann Jane Adams Allshouse & Finley who married my Great Grandfather Alfred Veatch. The Lady who wrote the newsletters that I think you're referring to was my Aunt Merna Jean Veatch Urso. I still have several of Merna's Newsletters if you're interested - she was quite focused on the Allshouse family. My email address is on my profile, if you are interested.

Again, It's good to meet you Carol !

Travis Darnell
Carol,

Someone gave you the wrong directions for locating the grave of Travis. This is a new section with very few burials. There is only one bronze bench in this section, and it is to the left as you enter, not the right, and it isn't Travis on the bronze military plaque. There is to the north of the bench a new grave, however, this grave is not marked in any way, there is no name on it so no way to tell if this is Travis or not. I took photos to show you what it looked like, but I will not post them on his memorial unless I can be certain that is his grave. I suggest that you take your request down, and wait until some one puts up a stone or marker for him.

Bert & Myrtle
Hi Carol, I hope you don't mine me transferring Bert & Myrtle to you. I thought it would be easier for you to add any future information if it becomes available than going thru an edit and then waiting. I was going to edit Ethel to show Myrtle as her mother but after reading that awesome story I would have been wrong.

Hi Carol,

The edits I sent you back on March 17th are still awaiting your approval.

Are you still active on Find A Grave?

Some people who have been on Find A Grave for a long time still don't know about the new edit features and how to approve edits. If you need help with finding where you click to do edit approvals, let me know and I can help you. :)

Thank you!
