|Bio and Links|
I have been doing genealogy for many years. One of my favorite things in researching is visiting cemeteries. I love to just walk around the tombstones and try to imagine what the people's lives might have been like. I have been contributing tombstone pictures to this site to help fellow genealogists that are a distance away that can't visit their relative's gravesite in person. |
My family has been a big assistance to me in my project for this website. My son, Trenton, my daughter, Alena, and my husband, Terry, have helped me take tombstone photos. So a big "THANKS" goes out to all three of them!!
Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT." Please keep this in mind when you request a transfer as it takes a lot of time and money to do research to add memorials to this site. I love working on this site, but I have run into some problems just recently.
I DO WELCOME ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS AND FAMILY LINKS. The more information the better!! I usually get the updates done within 1 or 2 days.

Thanks for all your time and effort to document cemeteries. I was happy to see a pic of William Hand in Indiana and I was wondering if I could use his picture in my ancestry tree as well as on Fold3. I will of course give you credit for the picture and reference your findagrave member #.
I don't have any extra information to add for William at this time. I think he may have been married to a cousin. I did find his service card at fold3 but it didn't hold any additional information.
|susanews||Stonebraker or Meneley?|
I'm confused by two obits - Jennie's daughter, Melba's obit indicates her mother was Jennie Stonebraker, with no mention of Meneley. One of them may be a mistake, or there's another piece of information I don't have...

I just suggested that Jennie's maiden name was Meneley (from her obit, which I posted) There was a Jennie Stonebraker living in Champaign, IL, but I think it's a separate person. It looks like the way private edit "suggestions" are being handled has changed, and now someone at findagrave reviews a suggestion before making an edit?
I just want you to know, in case you have better info than I do!

Thanks for adding the birthdate. Greatly appreciated.

Thanks for adding birth year to the memorial. Thank you for all the work you have done on Find A Grave. It is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for taking the time to photograph Harry Kuemmerle's grave marker. His daughter was married to my great uncle and I've been trying to find out a bit more about their family.

Hi Lisa: I just updated two of the cemetery pictures for my great grandfather that was not there and his son. William McGee and john McGee. I was there a few years back doing research on our family. I found the old farmstead and the plots with markers. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication.
|Lynn Hayes||Altha Wills/LaTourette|
Hi Lesa! I recently picked up my copy of the new Fountain history. Very new to geneology, but know my family is connected to the LaTourettes of Ftn. I have a picture of Schuyler in a uniform which he sent to my grandmother with a letter signed Loving Uncle. My great-grandmother was Altha. I believe her maiden name was Eyestone. Grandmother was Florence Wills Carter, and was born Feb.1899 or 1900. Would appreciate any direction you might know to get jump started. Thanks so much! Lynn Carter-Hayes.

|Pamela Johnson||john Burton|
Do you have any other information about John S. Burton, #52735193? I am trying to determine if this is the one I am looking for. He was married to Martha Elizabeth Duncan and they lived in Danville, Vermiliion Co., but 1900 census says she is a widow, then 1910 says divorced so I don't his death date. Any info you have would be great. Thanks Pam J.
|Sue C.||Mendenhall updates|
Thanks so much for updating the various links I sent on the Mendenhall family. It is very much appreciated.
