I am always happy to transfer a memorial to a family member closer in relationship than I am. Just let me know which ones, using the edit tab in the upper right and then under "suggest a correction" ask for the transfer of the memorial and include how you are related.|
I have been doing genealogy for 45 years and have published family history books for my parents, my husband's parents, my daughter-in-law's family and my son-in-law's family. I am a retired librarian and have traveled with my husband as we volunteered to help build Habitat for Humanity homes all over the country. We have visited all of the cemeteries of known direct ancestors for all our families; I have loved adding them all to this wonderful website.
My genealogy is downloaded to the World Connect Projects link at Rootsweb.com. I have 7 gedcom databases, accessed by typing in the database name in the "jump to specific database" box or by searching by name and looking for my entry with one of the database names below:
gravleesellers, druinlewis, macyblair, barchliger, lewisadams, rudisilltrigg or fieldmasser.

|Donnie Daniel||Judge John Martin bro to Rachel|
Speaking about Rachel's father....I will be in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on June 8th for the Martin reunion and a memorial placement for Judge John Martin, bro of Rachel. He was the 1st Supreme Court Justice for the Cherokee in Georgia and then in Oklahoma after the removal. I attended the Martin reunion at Cumberland Gap, Ky last year for a placement of a memorial for Col Joseph Martin at Martin's Station/fort that Joseph and John constructed to protect the whites coming into Indian territory.
|Donnie Daniel||Rachel Martin Davis Memorial|
John Martin, Sr (Joseph Martin's bro) is the father of Rachel. Dr. Emmet Starr had it wrong in his book 'History of the Cherokee'. Noted historians and authors has long since conceded that John is her father and it was recorded on her slab marker before someone 'turned it over'. Don Shadburn noted historian and author of ten books on the Cherokee saw this marker before it was 'turned over' and has photos. People want to have her father as the famous 'Colonel Joseph'....you know more glamour. I am not changing my records.
Thanks for contacting me...

Is it okay to use the pictures you have posted for personal use and on my ancestry.com tree?
|BCHS||RE: Andrew Joyce grave marker|
I have an idea where that photo was taken so I will go out there and see what I can see.

Diane, I've started using Carboff Paper to make a "rubbing" of the stone. It does a very good job of bringing the engraving to life and does absolutely no harm to the stone. For an example go to memorial #76629797 where there is a photo of a rubbing and one of the stone without help. See what you think and let me know. I found this product while vacationing in Michigan. On Grand Island in Lake Superior to be exact. There was a lady there doing a whole old, old cemetery for Find a Grave and she was using the Carboff. It was introduced to her Genealogy Society by a Funeral Home Director. If you're interested I can tell you where I bought mine. Gerry
Thanks for taking this picture for me! I really appreciate your kindness. It's people like you that make Findagrave such a great site.

Would you happen to know if there was a marker ever placed in Brookside for him? I will check at the library to see if there was an entry for the 1977-79 surveys. If not listed there, he probably does not have a marker.
