I love genealogy. Figuring out what happened to my ancestors. Most of my ancestors were the "black sheep" of their families, so finding out what happened to the "good sheep" is a bit hard. |
I'm always interested in more information, and always willing to share the information that I have gathered.
Find A Grave has proven itself to be a wonderful community full of friendly people who are always willing to lend a hand.
I will gladly transfer ownership of my non-family memorials to family members. I am open to discussing the transfer of family members if you are more closely related.

I would like to copy this gravestone photo to my family tree on ancestry.com. I will give you credit. I was going to ask for a transfer but I believe that has been done to some one else.

This is the least I could do. Thanks for all you have done. Have a great Easter!! Baxter
|Baxter B. Fite III||RE: Joseph Stewart|
Dear Nashay, I want to Thank You for entrusting me with the Find A Grave site of Joseph Stewart of the 86th Illinois that you created. I consider it a great honor and privilege to have TEMPORARY management of his site so that I can work on his biography as I find information. Since I started all of this 26 years ago, it has been my intent to locate family members who hopefully can provide me with more information AND PHOTOGRAPHS of their ancestors and to provide them with any information AND ANY PHOTOGRAPHS that I been fortunate to find and copy that they may not have. Since I found out about Find A Grave, I have been fortunate to find a number of family members who were thrilled to take over management of their ancestors site after I had added all I could. I'm not going to beg some grandson who couldn't care less about his great grandpa to take over management of his great grandpas site, but it is my hope and prayer that I can find at least one interested descendant of every member of the 86th that will treasure their ancestors site. And I promise I will do that!! The last thing I want to do is die with 992 Find A Grave sites of the 86th Illinois.
Thanks again for all that you have done and for all you will yet do for Find A Grave. It is GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! P.S. There is not picture of his tombstone yet. I still work in the dark ages with an old 35 mm camera with film in it and the only way I have been able to add pictures is that I also have a scanner that I can scan into the computer and then can send on to Find A Grave. Hopefully a volunteer with the equipment needed will get Joseph's grave photographed. Thanks again for all you've done!! This email leaves Peoria with prayers that it finds its way to you and finds you doing well. Sincerely, Baxter

Hi, Naomi! Thanks for letting me know about the Zumwalt additions. My sister lives in an old home in Williams, and when I visited last year, we went to the cemetery and took pics of graves for people associated with her house. I think Joseph Zumwalt may have been in or near the Retterath family plot. According to people in Williams, the houses in her neighborhood were built by Henry Retterath.
|Katy C||Alma/Elma Thompson|
Alma Thompson is the name on the Find A Grave memorial. Elma is the name in the headstone.
They are the same person - the wife of John Stickney Thompson. I re-request a photo for her headstone.
I will contact the memorial owner, a distant relative of mine, and see if we can sort out what her name really is. I would guess that the headstone is right, but you never know.
Thank you for all of the wonderful work you are doing to help! You are awesome!

|Katy C||Ruth Thompson|
Greetings! I re-requested a photo for Ruth Thompson and in the photo request message I included her middle name, Jane, and her maiden name, Graham. She is the mother of John Stickney Thompson.
Thank you for all of your help!
