|Bio and Links|
I am very much enjoying doing our family genealogy and learning about our family. The "Lemon" side, the "Eastman" side (my mother's) and the "Reid" side (my wife's). If anyone has any stories about our families I would love to see them.|
I am working with Family Tree Maker 2014.I really enjoy working with this program. This project helps to keep my mind active. Originally from Galesburg, Michigan we now live in Lady Lake, Florida.
Connie and I have taken Genealogical trips researching our families and taking pictures of headstones in many cemeteries. We have been to Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, & Canada recording cemeteries. If anyone has any further information or corrections please feel free to contact me so I can make this information as complete and correct as possible. If I know we have family members in a cemetery I usually take pictures of every legible, and some barely legible, headstones.
Please help me with corrections.If you have additional info or a correction to one or more of my memorials please use the edit button then suggest a correction on that memorial. Leaving me a message makes it harder to make that correction.
These trips have afforded us the pleasure of meeting many distant cousins and we even found the original "Lemon" house built in 1809 and still being lived in in Columbia County, Pennsylvania. I had the pleasure of talking with a man that had grown up in the house and could tell me many stories of its history.
A picture is worth a thousand words and for the most part I only post internments with a picture of the headstone. Consequently I don't always record every inscription on the headstone. It is already written in stone.
We don't take all these pictures as if we're in some sort of a contest. We do it so we can help other people researching for their family members. I much prefer having a picture of the headstone. It is my belief that in death the family is much more likely to record the proper/correct information. It is true that upon rare occasions an engraver will make a mistake but much less likely than a census taker. Census records are a good guide but some people are very lackadaisical in giving the correct information to the census taker or the census taker is only trying to earn a pay check and just writes down what he/she wants, the way he/she hears it and many times very unledgible.
Unfortunately, Connie passed away on February 12, 2011. I will carry on but researching is not the same without her help. I truly miss being able to use her as a sounding board for ideas and problems. We really enjoyed traveling and taking photos of cemeteries.
Family research can be an addiction, it is for me, but it can be very rewarding and is a great avenue for meeting and corresponding with many distant relatives. I wish everyone happy hunting in your research.
Submitting a SAC ("Suggest a Correction" on the Edit tab) is the ONLY way to give me the information I need for corrections or transfer requests. I will not make changes from public messages. Please don't make me turn off public messages. (Public messages don't have the necessary links to do changes efficiently.)

I was wondering if you have photos of the headstones for the Bennett family in Sheffield Cemetery. Charles and Amanda were my 3G-grandparents and Josiah and Elizabeth were my 4G.

James, I thank you for the transfer of William and Sarah. As always your work is much appreciated. Ann
Sorry, I didn't leave his memorial number in the previous message: # 71575560
|Onlyarethusa||Howard Syers Tompkins|
Howard was the first husband of Mary Martha Lucinda Wilson Tompkins Lemon. I've found your memorial for him in the Oakwood Cemetery in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada, but can't find any death records for him. I'm documenting Martha and John Clayton Lemon who married in Canada, lived in Pontiac, Michigan, and moved to and then died in California. Any information you can give me on your source for Howard's death would be greatly appreciated. We've been in contact before about these pesky Lemons. :)
|Ann in Kalamazoo||Graham family|
James, thank you so much for transferring the Graham family. I really appreciate all the work you do for Find A Grave!!! Gratefuly, Ann

p.s. I'm sorry that Find A Grave sent you the request two times. I don't know what happened, but I certainly did not mean to look impatient.

Thank you for adding his father's link. When I track down his mother, I will give you that link to add also. You created a very nice memorial for him!
