Bio and Links
Bio Photo It never ceases to amaze me how many people visit or create memorials for deceased people but balk at having a picture of a piece of paper that says someone has died.....?? Just saying!

I started doing research on my family tree around 1995 with my grandmother Dennis.

If you need edits to a memorial I have created please PER FAG...POST DOCUMENTATION SUPPORTING YOUR EDIT REQUEST FIRST and then please use the "EDIT" tab. It has been said that "Genealogy without documentation is mythology." (THANK YOU SUSAN!!)

As of February 2014 I am currently taking pictures of all the graves in Seaford Odd Fellows Cemetery so that I can enter them on FAG. After I enter everything I will go back and check for duplicates and any other problems. Thanks!

My favorite epitaphs:

Marion Michael Morrison (a.k.a. John Wayne):

Today is the most important thing in life
Comes into us at midnight very clean
It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands,
It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

Godfrey Beamguard:

Adieu all both far and near, my loving wife and children, For my immortal soul has fled, I now lie numbered with the dead. Remember friends as you pass by, As you are now, so once was I, As I am now, so you must be, Prepare for death and follow me."

RE: Ethel J. Hamblen Hahn
Thanks to contributor, "Anonymous" it appears the mystery concerning the burial place of Ethel J. Hamblen Hahn has been solved. They made the suggestion, "Although at one time managed by IOOF, the cemetery name is Union." I am unable to contact the contributor for further information about the renaming of the cemetery, but a call to Union Cemetery may resolve that. Thanks again for bringing this to my attention. May the Lord bless you.

RE: Hurd - Stubbs family
That's great. What is your email address? I can send you a report of what I have found so far and hopefully you can fill in the blanks. Of all my MomMom Kelley's siblings, Grt Aunt Liza, Grt Aunt Emma and Grt Uncle John were the two she mentioned.

Thanks Laura,

Hurd - Stubbs family
Hi Laura,
I'm researching my Grandmother's family. Her sister was Eliza Hurd Stubbs. It sounds like you are also a relative. I have some blanks on some of Eliza's grandchildren, etc. Could you help?

Thanks so much,

Memorial # 101334345 He is Samuel J. M. Smith, wife of Clara Hamilton Smith.

Is that what you were looking for?

Cape Charles Cemetery
Do you recall ever seeing a sign for that cemetery? I am cataloging in my tree and I wanted a image to reference with. I can not find a sign for that cemetery at all.

No, but the last pic of him in the DSP magazine didn't look good.

Missing pic?
Hey, I need some info. Back in 2005, you took pics of the Tharp Family Farm Cemetery, Farmington, DE. There are some missing pics. I know its been a long while, however can you advise about James Madison Tharp, 12/25/1808 - 3/12/1849; Ann Jane Tharp Harrington, 1/22/1812 - 3/1/1888 and Jonathan Tharp, 7/24/1843 - 9/8/1855.
I am working on some missing pics requests. I know I only been doing this short while, however I enjoy searching for the small cemeteries and getting pics of the headstones.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Dear Laura,

I have made you one of My Friends! Anyone that would check an 80,000+ cemtery for my Photo Request, whether singly or with others, has earned more than my 'friedship' can hope to repay. I checked your outstanding Photo Requests and it would be a long shot should I travel there before hopefully someone in that area is able to fullfill your requests. That being said, I will strive to 'pay it forward' in a Photo Request in your honor.

I will hopefully visit the office as you have suggested and seek further info on Walter and his wife Margaret.

Thank you for the informative specific search report and All your Find A Grave efforts! You and I have the 'specific data' sharing trait in common.

Always, in Find A Grave brother/sisterhood,
