|Bio and Links|
I have lived in the Pacific NW most of my life, I travel and take cemetery pic's when I am able, mostly in OR, WA, ID, & MT. (and now SE Texas)|
I am researching these names:
SWEET, WENTZ, STILSON, FULLER, GRAY, HUFF, McCLAIN, and BRIGGS.
AANERUD, WELL, CUNNINGHAM, WALLER,
PORTER, WALKER, HOUSTON, GREENE,
COUNTISS, MUSICK, FLEENOR, and WEBB.
I don't mind transferring outside of the parameters of FAG, if you are related. Please use the edit tab. To be fair for the others that may be related, I will only transfer one of a couple, (ie Grandparents, GGparents etc.)to a single contributor.
I DO NOT link to virtual memorials.

Thanks for the transfer of Memorial # 44142040. Much appreciated. I have made the updates and linked her to her father. Hoping now to find her mother Anna Richards Craft and her husband Andrew Graham – b 18 Jan 1883 and died 1945.

Thanks so much for sending me a document with her maiden name. I just added it to her memorial. If you find a Bible record, etc., with more names or dates, please send!

|wjk||RE: Kenneth Robert Keys memorial|
William (Bill) Kenneth Keys is my husband's uncle. I took that photo of the headstone and never found out why it had Kenneth Robert or, for that matter, the census entries either tho at least the Kenneth was partially correct. I was confused for years. William's father, Floyd, lived to be 100 but unfortunately I didn't get the genealogy bug until after he died. My husband's father died young and my mother-in-law had also died before I saw the headstone so my best sources were gone. I have since found the original death certificate (birth 16 Feb 1919) which confirms the name and relationship with Floyd and Etta. I also found newspaper articles about William's death (a suicide that probably actually occurred 12/25/38, the body not being found until January 1939) which is information also supported by family memories (albeit not much discussed). Thus I am certain that the William Kenneth is the correct name. If you feel comfortable with this I would like to see the information changed.
My husband's Clarke family goes back through Martha Clarke Graham (his 3rd gr grandmother) on to Richard & Keziah (Perkins) Clarke. Not an uncommon name but apparently our connection somehow.
Thanks for replying,

That information was in the cemetery list, so there's no telling, really, what the source was. A few of the lists I used mentioned that sources included "reading" the cemetery, cemetery records, and obituaries, and it seems likely that many others had the same sources, even if they didn't say so.
|Cathy Stevens (Stapleton)||Fuller Line|
I have a book lineage that goes from Edward Fuller, who came to America on the Mayflower, and goes to my husband. Here is the memorial for the author, 163323657. Would this be the Fuller line you are searchin for?
|Sandi K ||97676195 Kenneth Ogden|
Thanks so much for recent edits. I have made them and also linked Helen & Kenneth to a Burial Unk memorial I made for their son Dave (one of my classmates). Do you have any way to find out where Dave is buried? I got info from school website but don't have Funeral Home info & have hesitated to contact his sister, also not sure just how to - if you do have info I'd like to get his memorial in proper place. Again thanks so much and pls let me know if you want any of these which might be relatives to you transferred to you. Sandi

Elwood Sailer (your memorial #91214820) was my 3rd cousin, 3x removed. Would you kindly relinquish maintenance of the memorial to me so that I can link him to his mother at #91214820 rather than #99338436. Once linked, I'll delete my #99338436 of his mother, and no longer have duplicates posted for his mother.
Thank you in advance--
Craig L. Burton

I think you can as a relative ask the Federal Vets Adm. for a free stone for a Veteran if you could prove he was in the service. His name should be on the roster for his unit. Might be worth a try.
|P.K. Magruder||RE: re: Merge Clara Torrey|
In this case the state was taking the land for a flood control dam. The state offered to move the markers & "the bucket" for free; if the family wanted the physical remains removed the family had to pay for it. In some cases, the burials were so old, the family saw no point; in some cases the family felt that their ancestors were buried where they wanted to be; in some cases, the family just didn't have the money; in some cases no family was located.
In the case of Quabbin where it was going to be a drinking water reservoir, the state moved the remains from the area to be flooded + the surrounding watershed.
When the local Catholic cemetery moved in 1865, they removed both because it was consecrated ground & they couldn't deconsecrate (not sure that is a word) it while there were burials remaining. They obviously missed some as it now is a playground & human bones have worked their way to the top.
|P.K. Magruder||re: Merge Clara Torrey|
From the cemetery description:
Unless a family member had the remains exhumed and moved, the remains were left in place. Soil from the original grave accompanied the marker and was placed under it at its new location in Norwich Bridge Cemetery...Note: Marker transcription, relationship links, picture of marker and any additional information are posted at Norwich Bridge Cemetery. A link to each memorial in Norwich Bridge Cemetery is included. For those few instances where the remains actually were moved, the only memorial is in Norwich Bridge Cemetery.
Huntington recorded if the remains actually were removed & in Clara's case they were not. Her remains are at Knightville; her marker is at Norwich Bridge.
