Bio and Links
Bio Photo My brother was a murder victim in 1980. I did not know about this site until I went looking for headstone costs, we had thought that he did not have a headstone for 30 years. I found that he did have one through this site it is really impressive. I went to see his headstone and was amazed at all of the other headstones that were at the cemetery. I will be doing this more often.

You probably don't remember me, but I was a friend of Roy's from Van Cleve.
I have thought about Roy everyday since his passing. That was one of the saddest days for me.
I was 9 years old when he was killed. It has weighed on my mind for the last 30+ years.
I looked up his grave site in the library archives. When I was taken to the actual gravesite,
I was distressed to realize that he had no head-stone.
I asked if it would be alright if I put a head-stone on his grave.
They told me that I could but if the family objected, they could make me remove it.
I'm not looking for anything. I just feel that he deserved a stone and I was in a position to give him one.
Maybe that's my way of finding some closure.
I hope I haven't stepped on any toes or offended anyone.

re; Derringers
Hi Debbie, I finally figured out what I did and was able to retrieve your emails. Thank goodness! Thank you again for the photos. It sounds as if the photo of Margaret Derringer is not my GG grandmother, as she was born in Germany in 1822. I wonder if she could be buried in Bear Creek. Also I don't know where her husband is buried. His name was Georg Adam Derringer, but in the U.S, he went by Adam. I know he was a Union Soldier in the Civil War . I have to do more research on that. I looked to see if he was buried in a military section of a graveyard, like his brother was, but I couldn't find him and I believe that he survived the War. I'll try to look him up at Bear Creek. If you happen to be over there and pass those Derringers, if you see Adam and Margaret, I would love it if you could take that photo. I would appreciate knowing where they are. Thank you again. I'm so lucky to have found this site and that there are people like you who are so generous to do this for us folks who care,but aren't able to get to the Cemetery to see where our ancestors are.

re; Derringers
Hi Debbie, I just got back from a weekend visiting my parents and I went to look at my messages and I saw that you went and took photos of the Derringers, But I have alot of stressful stuff going on here and I was talking on the phone to someone and I don't know if I pressed something, but I can't find the messages from you! I don't know where they went and I have to go out now, but I'll look into retrieiving them when I get back home. I want to thank you so much for taking the time from your busy life to provide me with those photos. I can't tell you enough how much I truly do appreciate it! I hope I haven't screwed stuff up. I'm not real expert on the computer , but I'll look soon to retrieve the stuff, maybe from your site here. I didn't even get a chance to see the photos. Hope everything is okay with you and your family. Sometimes life just gives one so much to deal with, you just gotta slow down , take a deep breath and tell yopurself, everything will eventually be okay. Talk to you soon...Rhonda

Thank you so much for the new pictures of my father's grave site. Yesterday was the third anniversary of his passing. I appreciate all you folks are doing with this site. It is very comforting to be able to visit his grave on line. Thank you so much.

Hi Debbie,

My husband goes with me also to the cemeteries, it is very relaxing and you can walk and the stones can be very interesting.

I have been using for my family tree and you can use it monthly. I will go on for a few months and then stop until I have time to work on it again and it keeps it online even when you are not on. What is nice about that one is as you add a name it will match census, birth, death and marriage certificates with the name if they have them. Also WWI & WWII registrations which have some helpful information sometimes.

Thank you for filling my requests.

Happy tombstone hunting :)

Welcome Debbie!!
I see you have been bitten by the bug to fill photo requests for others :) When ever I do that I take photos of other stones in the area, sometimes I just feel pulled to them. I also then hope a family member will find them and I can transfer the memorial to them for safe keeping :)

Welcome to Find A Grave!!
