Bio and Links
Bio Photo Originally from the Philadelphia area, I now live in Columbus, OH. Researching Gilbert (Essex Co. MA), Poland (Essex Co. MA), Wheelock (Essex Co., MA/Nova Scotia, Canada), Andrews (Essex Co. MA), and Prince (Essex Co. MA) lines on Paternal side and Bennett (Philadelphia/N. Ireland), Farrell/Ferrel (Philadelphia/Germany), Schuler (Philadelphia/Wuertemburg, Germany) maternal lines. Researching Wife's lines: Priest (Ohio/Iowa), Gebhart (Iowa), Autullo (Ohio/San Bartolomeo in Galdo, Italy), Walker (Licking/Delaware Co. Ohio).

I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to ancestry.com without giving me credit. Simply indicate " 2006-2014 K.B.Gilbert on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated. [borrowed with permission from J. Sullivan].

Thanks to Brooke in Henry County, Iowa, for getting me started. She found my wife's great-grandmother's grave in Iowa and posted it--we never would have found it without her!

Thank you!
Thank you so much for filling my request for John B. Hixson and Eleanor Hixson! I greatly appreciate it. I live in Seattle so it's not possible for me to get out there myself. I love that there is an American flag by their headstone. John is a civil war veteran. It means so much for you to have done this for me. Thanks again!
I did copy the photo to ancestry and gave you credit as requested.

I looked up his offspring the other night and two of his boys are in their 90s and live in Florida. Another is comparable age and lives in Columbus.
I am 75 and on dialysis.

RE: Anna Frances Hickman-Maple Grove
Thank you. It is after all your posting so you should have a lot of say in what's there.
My genealogy charts are on the internet at the rootsweb kycarter website which was posted by a correspondent of mine.

If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.

RE: Anna Frances Hickman-Maple Grove
Accordung to FTM, Kin is First Cousin Twice Removed of yours truly and Anna is his wife.
She has been dead 20 years.

Here is the obit for Anna:
Anna W. Hickman, age 86, died Monday [28 May 1984], Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., formerly of Delaware County. Former school teacher. Survived by sons, Willis M. and Harold S., both of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., Donald L., Columbus; daughters, Marguerite Albert, Freda Weldon, both of New Albany, Eloise Balish, Cleveland; 11 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; brother Robert Willis, Avon Park, Fla.; sisters, Eliza Gumlock [sic: Gunlock], Chillicothe, Alice Hess, Newark. Friends may call Moreland Funeral Home, 55 E. Schrock Rd., Westerville one hour before service, which will be held Saturday 10:30 a.m. Rev. Norman Gendt officiating. Interment Fancher Cemetery.
Columbus Dispatch -- Columbus OH; 31 May 1984

This obit is archived on ancestry.com which now owns findagrave, so I don't think those old rules apply.
See http://boards.ancestry.com/topics.obits/52675/mb.ashx
There was a glowing obit for Kin, but I don't have that handy.
