Bio and Links
I believe there is much to be learned about a family when you track to the cemeteries. They peacefully hold a wealth of 'clues'. We can learn of other family members whose final resting place is in or near the same location. Monuments reflect the 'times' the individual lived in; in many cases their trade, religion, military experience, sometimes even their interests, like Brotherhood of Masons or Woodsmen of America, etc. A headstone is, in many ways, the last remaining evidence that this individual actually walked the face of the earth. It is an eternal tribute.
We must remember that the information found on the headstones might not be factual but rather an 'oral history' from close family members. Cemeteries are wonderful place to begin searching for your ancestors.
We each have our own 'History in Headstones'.

Lane Family History
I am the great-great granddaughter of Abraham Lane, one of Randolph and Biddy's children. You seem very well informed on the Lane Family and was wondering if you would be able to share some details with me or possibly direct me where to look.

Thank you.

Thank you!
What an amazing record and service you are creating! It seems that every time I find a family record on F.A.G. the contributor is Sherry Link and so much additional back round info. I know how much research and time you are giving. We Meadors descendants are so fortunate that so many were buried in the Bolton Cemetery and that you have taken on and been so faithful in your task. My aunt Alice Meadors Lack took me out on those country roads once to Bolton in the spring time when the cemetery was full of those beautiful yellow flowers all over the grass. She took me around to pay respects to the many, many relatives who rest there. A trip I will not forget. Thank you.

RE: Roy Ham and Truney Ann (Hubach) Ham
Some of my fondest memories are of Uncle Roy. I remember him as a sharp dresser and very polite. He always wore a bow tie with his suit and he wore a distictive hat. Although I only saw him and Aunt Truney on occasion I never heard him complain of any pain or anything wrong. He always had that cane in his hand and that hat on his head and he was always moving.....

I am the grandson of Lydia Fallen (Hubach) Wilkerson and Roy Roscoe Wilkerson. Lydia and Truney were sisters. I would ask you to transfer Roy and Truney to me but if you dont want too I understand. It was a pleasure extending my family tree on Uncle Roy's side by talking too you.

Sincerely
Donald Lloyd Wilkerson

Roy Ham and Truney Ann (Hubach) Ham
I was wondering if you are related to these people? They are my aunt and uncle. I am Lydia Fallen (Hubach) Wilkerson's grandson. Which is Truney Ann (Hubach) Ham's Sister. If you are related I would enjoy swapping family history with you? If not would you please consider transfering both of them to me?

ROGERS, Howe at Stilwell, OK
Hello. I am a fellow volunteer here on Find A Grave. I am a big supporter of our veterans and I think they deserve to be honored upon every chance, including the small courtesy and recognition of having their military rank included on their memorials. (In the fashion of adding their rank added via the drop-down box, so that it appears in the title line of the memorial page)

Just wanted to ask you, -- when you get a chance, would you please check the "EDITS" tab on your F.A.G. profile page? I have sent one or more items for very minor corrections, a suggestion or addition of a plot number, etc. (including this one) and they are apparently still pending your review/action, as the manager of the memorial. For more information SEE: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=listFaqs#172

Thank you so much! I appreciate it. Best wishes for 2014.

Sherry, I don't know if I have ever emailed you before, but I descend from Thomas and his first wife Jane Barlow. From their daughter Margaret Lydia Elizabeth Costephens, who married Samuel Robbins. I would like to hear from anyone who descends from this family.
