My Grammie loved visiting cemeteries. Her favorites were the old, semi-abandoned cemeteries. We would drive by ones out in the desert or the plains, and Grammie would say, "We'd better stop and visit those folks who don't get out too much." We would wander through the graves, Grammie would have a chat with those folks who don't get out too much, and we would be on our way. Those people are gone, but not forgotten. I'm glad that Find A Grave is so popular, along with local historical societies and free genealogy sites like USGenWeb. Thanks to them, we can all visit "those folks who don't get out too much," and remember them. They may be strangers, they may be family, but they are not forgotten.|
If anyone wishes to use any of my photos on genealogy websites or for other purposes, I do not mind as long as you are not charging anyone for them! I want family and friends to be able to see these photos, especially the actual photographs of the people. Too often only one person in the family gets the photos, and the rest of the family, decades later, are left wondering as to what their ancestors and relatives may have looked like. Please, share your photos, post them on free sites. You never know just how happy you might make a distant relative who sees a resemblance between that person and them or their children!
If you stop by my page, please take a moment and visit my Grammie, she always loved having visitors. Thank you!

|Macso||RE: Sylvia Hamilton|
Sad to hear there is infighting and it has resulted in her grave remaining unmarked. Happens in lots in families. I'm glad you liked what I could provide and your mother was happy too. I try to do that for the unmarked, not the same as a stone, but yet still something. Hopefully, it gives some comfort to the family seeing the area in which they are buried.
I hope to work on marking my ggrandparents after the first of the year. I have gathered the documents necessary, it's just finding the time to drive the 35 miles to the cemetery during the week (as they aren't there on weekends) and having them accept my documentation. Then I can order a stone. My brother has offered to pay for half (what a nice brother). Then after 80+ years they will be marked. They were always remembered as we would go and put flowers on their graves when I was a child, but there needs to be a stone and hopefully soon there will be.
Much success to you on searching for your family members. Chris

This is my great grand father my father was David Alton Hatcher sr if you like get in touch.. I am very interested to see if any one may have phota of him or my grandfathe A.A. Hatcher married to Draxie Watson
|Macso||RE: Sylvia Hamilton|
You are very welcome. Glad I could be of help to you. I did verify with the cemetery that she was buried to the right of Marvin. I have had 3 instances in the last few weeks where the wife dies after the husband and no one bothers to get a stone for them. It's very sad. My father and I marked several graves that had not been previously marked in the 90's in out family. I have one more that needs marked, my great grandparents. It was hard times and my grandfather just didn't have the money to mark them. However, in CA, you have to prove lineage, so I have to gather several documents together to show my relationship to the deceased and that everyone else has died, giving me the right to mark the grave. So it's quite a task. Chris

I am sorry to report that her grave was unmarked. She is buried next to her husband in Lawn I. I did take a couple of photos of where her headstone should be. Always sorry to have to report an unmarked grave. Chris

Hi - I am descended from 2 of Anna's sisters. I was in LA last week and went by Forest Lawn to look for the DeGrootes and the office couldn't figure out where they are buried. Maybe you can help or give me a number to try and call again? Will be back in LA in the next few months. Thanks!
Hi, did you know Carrie Fawver personally? I appreciate this contribution!

|speell||RE: CC Hanna|
Absolutely not! The important thing is that C C Hannah has found people who belong to him and will honor his memorial. I've always marveled at how a memorial will become alive once it is "tended" by a descendant who remembers the one it represents. Your Grammy would be proud of all that you have done, and that you care enough to pass on a memorial to another who can make it come alive.

|speell||C C Hanna|
Hi, I'm photographing the Covington, TX Cemetery and have come across a CSA headstone for C C Hanna. There are no dates for birth or death. I have placed it on the memorial you created for Christopher Columbus Hanna. If it is not his, will you let me know so I can move it to a new memorial?
