|After the horrendous earthquake in Haiti recently, I decided to read a book I inherited years ago, but had no interest in until now. (The Black Rebellion in Haiti" by Pierre Etienne Chazotte, and edited by his grandson, Charles W. Platt) When I did some research, I learned that Pierre or Peter, is my 4th great grandfather and Charles W. Platt is my great grandmother's brother. In reading the book I learned that Pierre was one of only a couple of white people who were able to escape the massacre of multiple thousands in 1804, partly because he had American citizenship. The unedited version is in the Library of Congress. In my research, I stumbled onto Find a Grave, and discovered that many kind people had made memorials for a number of my ancestors, for which I'm extremely grateful. Some have become friends and are assisting me in further family searches! Thank you all! Especially my friend in Reno!|

|GreenHills Stones Calling||71290100 Photo up|
The headstone photo is up now for Elizabeth Doolin.
|Jack and Ruth Gravance||Charles Doolin|
I linked Charles to his parents as you suggested, and added a photo of the granite marker identifying the section of the cemetery in which he rests.
Can I transfer the memorial to you?
|GreenHills Stones Calling||Elizabeth McKnight Doolin|
This memorial in California for Elizabeth Doolin (71290100) was created from Green Hills Memorial Park records. They provided the birth & death dates and burial plot. I have just requested a photo of her resting place. Our volunteers will likely provide a photo within a week.
|Stacy Fickbohm||RE: Agnes Josephine Steinheimer|
You are welcome. Another volunteer helped me with my family tree so the least that I could do is pay it forward.
No, there was no death date--that combined with the mention of her husband makes me think that perhaps this was a pre-need marker, so she may well be buried in California. In fact, since the California memorial shows plot number, I'm going to assume that was the case and delete the one in Vegas. If you find out differently in the future, you can "move" her...
I have found that the cemetery lists I have used have been quite accurate overall. In many cases there has been confusion caused by the wrong place being shown on the Death Certificate. But if someone dies in one state and is then listed in a cemetery in another state, it sure seems likely that the cemetery list would be correct.
Of course, sometimes bodies are exhumed and moved from one cemetery to another. That's the great thing about Find A Grave--family members with knowledge about people's lives and deaths can come along and add info, and even take over management of their relatives' pages.
