Bio Photo RECENTLY SUFFERED A STROKE, AND BROKE MY HIP, SO MIGHT BE SLOW TO ANSWER

NOTES EDITS
Requesting a transfer through the Edit feature insures that no mistakes are made. I manage too many memorials to research each one. If I find out later that an edit sent to me is not accurate, I may change it. I do not transfer to "Anonymous" nor do I do edits from them, without some explanation of the source of the information.

I love to see the memorials come alive with biographies and family history....and photos of our loved ones. I just LOVE it when I can help someone!!!
I have been researching some of my families since about 1978.


My grandmother went to cemeteries with me, and once said she would like the following to be on her stone: "WE LIVED TOGETHER, WE LOVED TOGETHER AND NOW WE REST TOGETHER". I Just fulfilled that request!!!!

PHOTOS: PLEASE GIVE CREDIT FOR MY PHOTOS THAT IS HERE ON FIND-A-GRAVE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. I TAKE PHOTOS TO SHARE----NOT TO KEEP AS MY OWN. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE THEM, PREFERABLY WITH CREDIT.

I recorded and submitted the ORIANA CEMETERY, near Peacock, Stonewall Co., Texas in about 1986, which can be found on the internet by doing a search. (It was possibly submitted to interment.net)
The Oriana Cemetery at findagrave is here.
FAVORITE SAYINGS:
"A person's life was more than the dash between years...." That dash represents your entire life and we need to live it wisely.


​Why I research and why I work with Find-A-Grave:
THEY DESERVE TO BE REMEMBERED AND RECORDED!

The names and dates on the stones represent a life lived. These people aren't just names on a stone---they once lived, laughed, loved, were happy and sad, shed real tears, endured pain.
They sometimes endured pain to the end, and they deserve to be remembered == not as names and dates on a stone, but as REAL, LIVE, LOVED people who had a story to tell! Some of them raised children, and some didn't. Some died way too young or as children. There is a story between those dates that you see on the stones. That is why I will research them and record it as best as I can, and SHARE IT HERE ONLINE WHEN I CAN.

​Every time you feel the warm air on your skin, know that I am kissing you gently and whispering that I love you.

Nancy,

You and I have collaborated before on the Mountain View Cemetery in Lordsburg. I had originally added several memorials and subsequently you added several photos and sent me bio details, links, etc.

I wanted you to know one result of our effort. I got a findagrave message today as shown below. I wanted to pass this along to you as you deserve much of the hidden credit here.

It make my heart warm to know that your and my efforts are helping to heal families and mend fences. I feel that is the way the good Lord would want it to be. I can't help but believe her relatives are smiling on the other side.

Thank you for all the good work you have done with this cemetery in findagrave.

Jay

P.S. I did some research and added parent links after receiving her message

Dear Sir
Thank you , for making my Great Aunt's memorial . And what a surprise , knowing that I was born on her birthday , too . Also , due to your memorial , I'll be able to use it as a reference in locating my relatives . Furthermore , her brother Paul is my grandfather . In August of 1968 , when I was three years old , my parents separated and then divorced . All of that , caused a demise for me by never having any more contact with the Giles family . Nor did they try for visitation rights . So , now you know , how helpful your memorial is to me . Once again , Thank you and God Bless You .

Luther Myers Bilberry 53671251
Hi Nancy,

I just noticed that the date of birth for Luther Myers Bilberry (53671251) is shown as 1866, rather than 1856. I submitted an edit through the memorial, just thought I would "explain."

He is in the 1860 census in Pulaski as being 4 years old. The picture of his headstone is a little hard to read but definitely says 1856. Also, born in 1866 would have made him only 14 years old when he married.

I am a Bilberry, gr grandson of Esau, and I do appreciate all the effort and time you have put in on these memorials. I like going to the cemeteries and finding ancestors as well. Some of them are evading me and it gets a little frustrating at times.

Thanks!

Ted Bilberry Jr.

RE: Elsie Cole
You're welcome. Maybe no stone yet, or perhaps the records have the wrong section listed. You could try the Portage Township Office (which runs the cemetery) 906-482-4310. Perhaps they have more up-to-date information, and could tell you if there is a stone in place.

RE: William Fountain Hamby Jr.
I think you might remember the problem with the contributor who established William Hamby, Jr.'s memorial in 2008. He refused to make changes and was impossible to contact (these were the days before Ancestry bought findagrave and the days before the "edit" key that is now featured on memorials. I emailed findagrave administration several times about the contributor and his plan to sell books by using findagrave information.

The same contributor who contacted you about the duplicate also contacted me yesterday about another duplicate memorial that I created. I wrote him and told him of the situation. After giving it much thought, I have decided to ignore him. He can use the "edit" key as well as I to alert findagrave to the situation.
