Bio Photo Hello everyone - I live in Huron County, Ohio, have three living children, and one deceased as a baby (SIDS). I love genealogy and have been doing it for at least 25 years. Barbara Kane Kolanda

TRANSFERS: With any findagrave memorial that I maintain, if you are a closer relative than I, I will transfer. If I have no connection and you have some connection (even friendship), I will transfer, as long as you do the same, and transfer freely as well.

A cemetery is a history of people - a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.

It has been said that every person has three deaths.

The first is the actual physical death, when the spirit leaves the body.

The second is when the body is lowered into the grave, never again to be seen in the flesh.

The third and final death comes much later, when all who knew that person have joined him in the afterlife, and the name, even the existence of that person, vanishes from knowledge.

RE: Joseph & Viola
I am happy to transfer anyone I'm not related to, or to someone who is more closely related to the person than I am. If you don't feel comfortable transferring Joseph and Viola, that's fine.

RE: Carabin
Barbara, all of those Carabins are related, so that would also be much appreciated. Thank you very much for this.

RE: transfers
I agree with you on this. 99% of my memorials are of relatives, but I'm more than happy to transfer to anyone who is a closer relative or if the transfer means a lot to them.

Sorry for my confusion Barbara. thanks.

RE: Cecelia Hoeffel
I apologize but I hope I understand what you are asking. Do you want to know my profession? If so, I have accounting degrees and a law degree and work for a law firm.

Hopefully this is what you need but let me know if not.

Thank you very much for your help with this.

Joseph McKenerie Smith
Thanks for putting his memorial on the site. He is the grandfather of one of my cousins. However, the application for military headstone cite is not for him, but rather for Joseph L. Smith. In 1918, Joseph M. Smith would have been close to 60, so I'm pretty sure he didn't serve.
I've linked him and wife Viola to their son Joseph Clare Smith. Thanks again!
