Bio and Links
I have been a semi-active member for almost 4 years, as the simple issue of earning a living has always come first, and only out of necessity.

As an avid Geneaologist my only wish is to provide the most accurate information I can for future generations.

I want to provide information both substaniated by fact and my personal insight.

I have a great deal of respect for all of my family members who have passed on before me.

Find A Grave is one of the most amazing sites I have ever encountered. Both for those of us who wish to honor our family,friends and mentors and for all of us who have lost them, still mourn their death and their loss to the communities that raised them.
FindaGrave allows us to provide them with the perfect place of Tribute. Give their all of their future descendants a measure of
solice and comfort and
for those we have loved and cherished whether we have known them personally or not.

Martin appears in the siblings list on his page, but it's not a link to him like it is for his sister Rebecca.. it's the way Find a Grave does the Siblings on each page..

Sponsoring Memorial
Thank you for sponsoring the memorial for Mary Tullar, wife of Reuben Tullar. It's very kind of you to do so. Is Mary an ancestor of yours too?

Best Wishes,

Our Oliver Amsbury, died in Arrow Rock, MO., in 1867. He was from Maine. One of his daughters married a Huston, their son Fred H. Huston born 31 August 1885, died here in Los Angeles Co., CA., on 12 April 1969

So you can see that I did get her maiden name:
Addie R. Amsbury and that Fred was in Calif. not so lucky with Harry C. yet!

Thanks Michelle.
The only beneficial result for sponsoring is to remove adds on Find A Grave.

If this is your aim you must be using IE.

Try Firefox for liberation!

RE: Headstone Photo
Yes you can use the photo. Thanks for asking. Most people just use photos without asking.

What is your line back to Jacob? Jacob is also my 6th great Grandfather.
