|Bio and Links|
I started actively researching the family ancestry in 2006 and my daughter started almost 20 years earlier. In this search, we have looked for the final resting places of our ancestors and their families. We found many, but some are lost and the cemeteries abandoned, uncared for &/or destroyed. For this reason, I am especially interested in documenting and preserving the memory of the pioneer cemeteries and those buried in them.|
I am a member of the Genealogical Society of Marion County (Indiana)and currently the editor of the Society's quarterly "Family Quest".
Although the Internet is a great tool and source of genealogical information, a lot of this information is incorrect, misleading and self-perpetuating. Just because it is written, does not make it true. Facts are not facts until they are proven. (That is why Ancestry.com calls everything a "hint".) Remember that genealogy without documentation is mythology!
Find A Grave is no exception. There are memorials with incorrect personal information, the wrong cemetery (even with photos from the correct cemetery) or showing cemeteries that don't exist or have made up names. So treat everything as a hint until it is verified as a fact. Remember that bad information is never right and it can cause others to stop looking for the truth.
Corrections and additions to my Find A Grave postings are always welcome. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial and click on the Suggest a Correction ("SAC") link. Also use the SAC link for transfer request. Transfers outside Find A Grave guidelines will be assessed on a case by case basis. Please state your specific relationship to the deceased.
Any posted grave marker photos I have taken may be copied for personal or genealogical use AS LONG AS CREDIT IS GIVEN. Written biographies may NOT be copied without permission. (Posting them on the internet, does not make them free to use.)

Thank you so much for going to the cemetery to see if you could take better photos of the stones for Ebenezer and Jane Smith. I genuinely appreciate your time, and will be happy to return the favor if you ever need someone to take photos of graves in Virginia. Very best. Gregg Prillaman.

You are so right. What a mistake. I entered his mother's maiden name as his last name.
I made the change to Sullivan.
Thank you for catching my error.

I understand. We have one like that here in Albuquerque. I don't understand it. There is no prize for dying with the most memorials.

Thank you for the info on them being in the other cemetery. I have sent a request for a photo at Holy Cross and have asked the person who posted the memorial at Calvary to delete those. Thanks for the corrected info.
|Thomas Clark||Carl W. Phillips|
Thanks you for the info. I moved it from Marion to Hamilton.
|love always||re: Thomas Warbington Powells|

|Kathy Feltman||Lenora Gundlach Photo Request|
I received your e-mail about the memorial for the above being in the Holy Cross/St. Joseph cemetery and have put in a photo request there. It appears there are duplicate memorials for Lenora and her husband Arthur. Neither cemetery has a gravestone picture and I am not sure which is correct. Thank you for your help so far.
|love always||RE: Thomas W. Powell|
Yes, I also did the travel calculations, thought it was rather strange? Will remove Thomas from the acton cemetary, thx Hopefully able to find better results in Lebanon.
