Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be happy to add additional information or make corrections to memorials I maintain. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to send your info to me and I will update.

My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from a now inactive member. I work on these daily to update with info and add photos.

Please do not copy my photos to other websites (including Ancestry) or publications without my permission.

Thomas and Mary Sarah Greene Gallaher
Hello, BjJ, I have received and considered your comments about my memorials to Thomas and Mary Sarah Greene Gallaher.

I am not planning on making any changes of burial location at present to Thomas' and Mary's (my GGGG grandparents') memorials. There are several reasons for my decision...I put up the memorials to enable genealogists on Find A Grave to link T&M to their children and parents, and marking a grave as unknown makes it harder to locate the memorials on Find A Grave. (Unknown memorials have no state, county, etc.)

T&M lived in Sangamon County, near Springfield. Their placement in Hutchinson may well be correct; if you look at the marker at Springfield High School, which you photographed, it says "eventually most of the bodies were exhumed." There are many rumors that unmarked graves and bodies were left behind. If T&M were buried there, they may still lie in repose on the grounds of SHS (my alma mater).

I am actively researching this matter, in fact, a gravestone for their daughter, Mary Miller Gallaher Lansden, who died right after her parents, was just located in Pisgah Cemetery in Morgan County, where her brother was the pastor. (And there are two memorials (neither one mine, but managed by the same person) to my GGGG-aunt Mary Lansden, one saying she is at Pisgah, and the other saying she was at Hutchinson and moved to Oak Ridge.)

I have two Morgan County photo volunteers who are planning to go out to Pisgah Cemetery and look for more Gallaher stones, but the cemetery is extremely run-down, I am told. I will update T&M's memorials as I have more information, but, for now, their placement at Hutchinson Cemetery is a plausible one, given the current information available.

RE: Charles A Cundiff
Thanks for the correction, after doing some research my info is for Chester Austin Cundiff son of Orlie Cundiff, and Ella Albright.
This is why we work together, thanks. Rogene

Charles A Cundiff
I'm confused as I don't have a Charles A. Cundiff, I have a Chester A. Cundiff.
Scates1782@aol.com and help me with this.

RE: Pearl Crane photos
Which direction do they need to be rotated? When I look at the memorial they are oriented correctly.

RE: James and Eliza Taylor photo request
BjJ, thanks for taking time to go out, find the site and document the burials of the Taylors. I'm sorry there was nothing there, but appreciate your posting a photo of the area of their final resting places, and your sending along a note of explanation. Thanks for all you do!
