I joined Findagrave a few years ago, and what a blessing it has been to me, I originally joined because I was trying to find my bio fathers headstone, When I was just an infant, social services came and took my siblings and I and placed us in foster homes, I was eventually adopted by a couple, but my siblings were scattered in different directions, and were never fortunate enough to be placed permanently. When I was 19, I began searching for my family members, I located my mother in Kingsport Tennesee, who connected me with my father, who was then living in Xenia Ohio, I was given his number and contacted him on Dec 12th 1986, I spoke with my father for the first time in my life, and he informed me, he was ready to pass on from Lung Cancer, I was notified on Dec 16th that he indeed lost his battle to the cancer, I was never able to meet my father face to face. I commited myself at that time to begin my search to put my family back together again, and I have done so minus my baby sister. But thru findagrave, I have been able to obtain, photos of my fathers gravesite, as well as other extended family members, when I sent my request out for the photo of my fathers grave, a wonderful lady responded and did obtain that photo for me, but also went the extra mile, and even went out and searched for one of my sisters who I had been searching for, she went to her doorstep, and told her she had a little sister who was searching for her, and gave her my phone number, the two of us email frequently and talk on the phone, there are 15 of us children. This has been my motivation to help others who are looking for that closure, and the connections to their family members. GOD HAS TRUELY BLESSED ME THRU THIS SITE!! plus I have met some wonderful people thru FINDAGRAVE!! If you need any help locating a grave site or family member, I would love to BLESS you the way I have been BLESSED
re: Seth Toney I placed a memorial/headstone photo for Seth Toney # 125643925-Memory Lane Cemetery,Grant County,NM; I keep getting edit requests from a gg/granddaughter of his to remove your photos from the memorial, as they are of his son,not him. I've told the requester I can not remove them, but they keep requesting. Remove if you wish!
