|Bio and Links|
A native of northwestern Pennsylvania (Spartansburg, Crawford county), I've lived in New York City all my adult life. |
I have a large database (150,000+) and all my entries on Find-A-Grave fit on my "tree," however distant. (Some, transferred to me by folks who no longer wanted to maintain them, may not fit on my "tree.")
I update my entries as I get additional information, and try to fill in the "blanks." I want my Find-A-Grave pages to be the most informative they can be.
Geographic areas of particular interest:
Armstrong counties, PA, Chautauqua county, NY, and Rockingham county, NH.
I WILL be glad to do "linking" and add information to the pages (obits, etc). I also WILL transfer to relatives (see Find-A-Grave guidelines) and, in some cases, others, IF they are willing to MAINTAIN the page - that means BEING AVAILABLE & RESPONSIVE to requests for "linking," inquiries, corrections, etc IN THE COMING YEARS! Otherwise, they are better off in my care.
I WILL NOT mention any living person on a Find-A-Grave page, other than surviving spouse. I WILL NOT add a list of someone's children. My understanding is that Find-A-Grave pages are intended to be a tribute and memorial to one particular individual. I WILL NOT "link" to a "Burial Unknown" page (see below).
The following PARAPHRASES remarks made by QUITE A FEW fed-up users in their profiles (and, yes, they're shouting), which I would ordinarily just think and not say, but I do agree with:
FAR TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE USING (ABUSING) THIS SITE AS IF IT"S THEIR OWN PERSONAL FAMILY TREE SOFTWARE.
NO ONE HAS ANY BUSINESS PUTTING ON A PAGE SAYING "BURIAL UNKNOWN" (SEE FIND-A-GRAVE GUIDELINES FOR THE RARE EXCEPTIONS.) WHO WANTS TO FIND A LONG-LOST RELATIVE LISTED HERE, GET ALL EXCITED, AND GO TO THE PAGE TO SEE "BURIAL UNKNOWN" ?? IT'S CALLED..... "FIND".....a-grave" FOR A REASON!!!!!!! (THE PAGE WILL, SOONER OR LATER, BE REMOVED BY FIND-A-GRAVE ADMINISTRATORS.)

Was just at Woodlawn, and took a photo of the grave of Jesse & Rose DeMille and added it to your memorial - here is Jesse's obit if you'd like to add it...

|Anne Sturgis||Carrie Ross memorial|
Thanks, Ted, for this memorial, and the obit - this lady's father, Ossie Ross, was our landlord when we first moved to Titusville...when he died, his son sold it to my parents, and my sister and I live there again now after many years away. I'd heard years before about Carrie, and when we had our old garage torn down, there were books that had belonged to her in it, and I still have them. I always sort of wondered if she had died in our house, because Ossie had said the upstairs sun room was built for someone with TB. Now I know the whole story about Carrie Ross.
|Beth Walsh||Judy Bush|
Hi Ted, I was wondering if you got any followup information from Live oak on Judy Bush? When i spoke to them they could not find her. sometimes prodding them helps to take another look.
Thank you for updating Uncle Claude Crosby's information. Betty is right, you do work fast. Wondering if you fit into my tree. I have been trying to connect to Crosby's in Spartansburg for years. Thanks again. Marie
|Tony Klingensmith||Henderson Cemetery|
Thanks for the info on Henderson Cememtery. That actually clered up several memorials that I had dual listings of Union Cemetery and Henderson Cemetery. It all makes sense now.
Thansk for yoru help to get these as correct as we can get them.
|Tigger||Lucinda Louise Sargent Negas/Borland|
Can you please transfer the information on your entry over to 66675251. There are duplicate entries and that entry is more correct. (All I need transfered is the husband, father, daughter and son). Then can you delete your entry.

|rc90||Thanks for link|
Thanks for sending link to James Maxwell "Max" Bumpus' parents. It was no problem to "link" them. If you're closely related and would like me to transfer Max and his wife, please let me know. I'm not related, but am close friends with a number of Max and Bertha's relatives.

You are welcome. I am glad that you were able to add information and link him to his parents. That is what I feel that Find A Grave is all about, bringing family together. Thanks, Karen

Hope all is well with you. I wanted to contact you to let you know that I was able to locate the Franklin Cemetery. You sent me some obit's of Family members and the opbit of my Great Grand Father Daniel Wagner.
This Cemetery is where Donald Leply and Ada Smith his Mother were laid to rest, you said in one of your E_mails you weren't sure if this was the actual Cemetery that was listed in their obits or if ti just staed they were burird in Franklin. Thie Cemetery sets on a hillside just north of the City of Franklin.Pa.in Venango County
Again Thank You
|T. L. Muir||Belden Bradley|
Thanks so much for your reply. That 'adopted son' regarding Charles is the key phrase. This is exactly the information I was looking for! I'm trying to confirm Charles' birth family but needed to be sure this was the right Charles Bradley, as our records had Erie County, New York.
