Bio and Links
Bio Photo I owe much gratitude to the Find a Grave members who have helped me in the search for my family. Perhaps my entries can help someone else to find their family.

Per Findagrave guidelines:
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. KEEP IN MIND THAT THE ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTOR MAY ALSO BE RELATED TO THE PERSON IN THE MEMORIAL AND MAY NOT WANT TO MAKE THE TRANSFER. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer.

I am happy to make any corrections and add any additional information you have for a memorial. Please submit additions, corrections and family links to me under the "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION" tabs.

RE: Elizabeth Clapham Strong
Dear Dawn,

You're very welcome! Elizabeth is the sister of my 3x great grandfather. Unfortunately, the stone was nearly impossible to read. However, it looks like it says 43 years, 8 mos & 21 days. That would put her birthday about December 22, 1820 which fits with what information I had about her being born about 1821. This cemetery is extremely small and dilapidated. I wasn't sure if I would find her because most of the stones within her section were worn smooth. There were also a lot of missing stones. I'm so glad I was able to find hers! I'm also glad I was able to share.

Hi Dawn,
I have deleted my duplicate as you requested. Thanks for letting me know. I do not make a duplicate on purpose, but sometimes just do not think to check when I am downloading several hundred graves.
I did have a photo of the grave and have posted it to your memorial.
Thanks again, Connie Sims

Emma Lantz's dates
Dawn,
You asked where my dates for Emma came from. I note that the Blair cemetery's website shows her DOD as 11/1/1929, but buried 11/22/1929 so your DOD of 11/18/1929 seems more likely. That website also shows her DOB as 1/1/1852, which always looks like they really only knew the year. I don't recall where I got my DOB, but I'm glad to use yours as more reliable.
