Genealogy is my primary interest, along with the desire to protect the information found in our cemeteries. No one repository is safe from deterioration or loss. All corrections, additions, and pictures are appreciated!|
Each memorial is a token of respect and appreciation for those who went before us.

|Rita Goss||RE: Scottish graves|
Thanks for such a quick response and the web info. I'm going to get started searching using this new site. According to findagrave.com there are over 1500 cemeteries in Scotland so I sure hope that this site will norrow down my search.
Thanks again for your help.
|Rita Goss||Cemeteries in Aberdeenshire|
I am trying to locate gravesites for several relatives who lived and died in Scotland. Ancestry.com shows where they are supposed to be buried but when I checked findagrave.com they are not listed at the cemetery.
When I search findagrave.com for Scotland it does not give me an option to narrow my search to the town or city. I was wondering if you could help me. Do you know how I could get a listing of cemeteries in Aberdeenshire? I would also be interested in their addresses so I can visit them when I visit Scotland in the near future.
I am also a findagrave contributor who loves genealogy. I am inactive at this time due to a knee problem.
I do appreciate any help you can give me.
Thanks a million!

Thanks for the offer but I'm happy with the way it is. After all, you did the most work and I see from the stats here that you have made an enormous number of contributions.

Sorry we have no further information, what was posted came from a cemetery book we had from a genealogy society.

Josiah James was my great-great-grandfather and I am interested in what you wrote on his memorial about his life. Josiah's daughter Sarah Francis was my great-grandmother and she's buried in Hemphill County, Texas. It was my pleasure to link her memorial to those of her parents and siblings.
I saw your stuff on Ancestry.com also, so I'm thinking you and I are related. I have never known much about the James family, probably because Sarah lived so far from the others. You can read a little of her story and see her picture on her memorial here or also on my Ancestry tree. I'd really appreciate any information you will share with me. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to hear from you!
|Peachy Pringle||RE: John Henry Reed - Arcola-Roseland|
I don't remember a sign at the cemetery indicating who is in charge. Next time that I am there I will look for a sign. That failing, I will ask the librarian at the parish genealogy library next time that I am there. I understand that most cemetery associations won't release information to non-relatives, but perhaps I could get an address that you might write to.
So, next time that we are there, we will also keep our eyes open for the West family, also.
John Reed should have one of those nice thick marble federal veteran's tombstones. They hold up even in this climate.
I suspect that other local people have also tried to fulfill your request. If a request stays on the Tangipahoa list for more than 2 months, there is usually a good reason.
Louisiana does not have a climate that is good for the lungs.
|Peachy Pringle||John Henry Reed - Arcola-Roseland|
My husband and I take pictures for people in the Arcola-Roseland, Tangipahoa, Louisiana Cemetery from time to time.
We have walked the whole cemetery a couple of times.
We have not found John Henry Reed.
The Cemetery is much larger than online records would indicate.
Most of it is in good shape, but some of the old stones under the trees are covered with moss and lichens - making them hard to read. Several rather large stones have fallen over on their faces.
The population of the cemetery is diverse - Yankee soldiers, Yankee carpetbaggers, CSA of course, people born in Europe.
Anyway, we have found no Reeds. Could you guess what people Mr. Reed might be buried near? We could look more aggressively in that area.
We might find him yet.
|Shelby Neuzil||RE: Shearer gravestone pics|
The stones were pretty hard to read. I don't think that either of them showed the birth date, but did say how many years old when they died. To me it looks like Walter's says the death date that is listed on his Find A Grave page, and then says aged 70 years. I think Euphemia's says the correct death date and then aged 67 years.
Sorry I don't have more info to help!
And you are very welcome for the pictures :) My husband and I really enjoy fulfilling photo requests!
|Paul Rolfe||Joshua and Thomas Heft|
Thanks for the info you provided on the two Hefts. I entered it on the web site. I have no relationship to them, but I support our veterans and love to provide what I can for genealogy buffs like myself. Did you know there are two Hefts in Fisher Cemetery in Underwood, Pott. Co., IA (7 or 8 miles from here)? Peter b. 1839 and Margaret b. 1843. Paul
|Jacie||RE: Shearer gravestone pics|
Your gravestone photos have been added. =) They have the full birth and death dates! =D If you ever need obits, don't hesitate to ask. I love looking for obits. =)
