|Bio and Links|
I research many family lines>> |
Smothers, Smethers, Smathers, SMEATHERS, Smither, Smithers, Smythers, Smitheys, Smiddys, GRASS, Longmire, STATLER, Beall/Bell, BERRY, Gentry, ASHBY, Stribling, Taliaferro, Youngman, Harris, Netherland, Lee, FOSTER, Greathouse, Showalter, Bowlus, RAMSEY, Strange, Ash, France, MILLER, HINCH, Hinsch, Hinchey, KELLY/Kelley, Butler, Clark, Dufner, May, Upton, Taylor, Day, Dowlearn, Upchurch, Turk, Reid, McElroy, Faught, Richardson, Schafer, Weymouth to list a few.
They come from Pa to NC/TN, from KY to TX.
Willing to take those of my family lines, extended families & those in our Smothers Tribe DNA project to manage when I run across them. I live in NE WA & at this time not available to search cemeteries nor take photos as physical disabilities hinder me in doing so or would do in a heartbeat. I will submit various family memorials as the information & gravestone information is gathered & given to me or I am able to do so. I gladly help anyone I can, esp along the lines I research to help connect families. It is my passion as a genial genealogist to assist others as much as possible.
...I like this I saw on a gal's page recently, "Let's make it a goal to add as much information, as we can possibly document, to these memorials."
Had to snag this from a gal's site.."I enjoy reading contributors Bio's but it's called that for a reason but Not, to use the space to reiterate F-A-G guidelines by a contributor who feels the need to preach to others about how they should make their memorials. Believing we are all adults & know the guidelines most all do act accordingly & do not need to be preached at."
New! snagged this on member's site which I agree with 100%, "Any and all info or pics I have uploaded are meant for SHARING! Family memories were meant to be passed on. I just don't understand anyone that thinks different, if you don't want to share, than DON'T put them on a public site!"
I admin our Smothers Tribe DNA project 2002-2014 as well as admin at least 50+ rootsweb & ancestry mail lists & boards to help others. I live on a ranch, am happily retired and besides a heartfelt Passion for Genealogy; my beloved family of children, grandchildren, cousins & precious friends, all my critters too esp my sweet little deer herd I've made great friends with over the years; I immensely enjoy working with F-A-G and members in helping folks connect with their ancestors. Am happy to make links, corrections & transfers. I am especially appreciative of our gravestone photographers and are owed big Cudos!!
Many kind thanks to all who leave flowers on any of our ancestor memorials!~Happy Trails!
Here are tidbits:JFYI
finding Gravestones without a dob>
when you don't have a dob and only dod & yr, mo, dy-here's a formula to figure out the dob
example: person died May 6 1889 age 71yr 7mo 9dy
1. write year, month day >18890506
2. subtract age at death >> 710709
3. gets this sum >>>>> 18179797
4. subtract 8870 >>>>>> 1817/09/27
= Sept 27 1817
here is another way to do it if the above gets you too frustrated/:-)
freebie calculator someone sent me. http://www.progenealogists.com/birthfromdeath.htm
If you wonder when census are done go here
Here is a link to a You Tube video about reading unreadable tombstones. Very interesting technique.
this one might be very helpful for photographers
LDS site has added millions of new records; checking it probably will find a DC for that individual with most all info one needs for any missing dob/dod's.
LDS research site/new
When giving your Member # to someone be sure to give them your whole link in your browser, otherwise they end up at a dec'd person's memorial; this separates being a member in F-A-G vs being a dec'd person with a memorial where you only need their member # to find them, can't find a F-A-G member though using this method, trust me I've done it, and end up at an unknown person.
"The Dash" is based on that little line on a tombstone, between the dates of birth and death. Ultimately, that dash is a symbol which represents every day they've spent alive on earth. Therefore, how you spend your "dash" is all that really matters. These memorials we do for folks hopefully give a glimpse into their lives of that DASH!
**FLASH NEWS UPDATE:ancestry.com has bought F-A-G
will remain Free but some changes are coming.**
thanks kindly, More later~~Happy Trails >>>>

Hi Nena. You wrote me back in December regarding the Greeno family. Sorry it's taken so long to reply -- this is the first day I've been on Findagrave in months. But, yes I am related to the Greeno family and would enjoy collaborating with you! Regards, Jan
|Diann Palmer Brodnax||RE: Memorial# 73795794|
Nena .... I am sooooo sorry for not returning a reply until now. I was offline for awhile and just returned to see your note. I am sorry but I do not have any information for you regarding DODs. I try to contribute photos either by request or if a memorial needs a photo. I have completed requests for folks that say their memorial is deceased and the date is not on the headstone. I find that strange, but I guess it could happen. (?) I hope you were successful in finding the answers you were seeking. Again, I apologize for the delay in responding. :)

I also added photos of the other Pillows that were beside them. If you are researching this family, you may want to check out Rose Hill at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~maury/cemetery/RoseHillCemetery/RoseHillListP-Z.htm to see connections for Pillows in Rose Hill.

Thank you for the help on this memorial.
Thank you for your time
Wendy EBENSTEIN Norman
If you want to add plot location it is: Field of Honor West Lot 14C-Space 1.
Mildred did sign the paperwork in 2004, it seems the empty space beside might be for her, but sometimes people will remarry or move and not end up in those spots. I did ask them to look up the father's name and they found nothing at this cemetery.

Hi...photos were taken of all the visible stones in that plot, so if they are not online they are unmarked. I'd have to check the cemetery records to see who all is buried in the plot. I'll try to remember to do it tomorrow when I am out there. Thanks for the info.

Yes ma'am, it is the order of the Eastern Star. It means he was a mason.
