MEMORIALS: I am more than happy to transfer any memorials, there is no necessity for it to be a certain number of generations. If they are in your family, just ask and the transfer will come.

PHOTOGRAPHS: Please feel free to add any photographs you want in order to enhance any memorial. They are greatly appreciated.

EDITS: Please use the edit button to make any changes necessary. If it is a person in your family though, just ask for a transfer and you can make the changes that you feel are needed.

RESPECT: Please treat myself and others with the respect that our loved ones would expect from us. None of us OWN these memorials and we should be working together to make it what it is: A memorial to a passed loved one.

INFORMATION TO SHARE: Anything that I have posted is free to be used in any site you please. I have put it here for it to be used and shared. I would just ask that you list me as the source. If not, I will just take it as an oversight on your part, and be delighted to see it being used.

A belated thank you for your photographs of David Washington Beardsley's and Betsey Beardsley's tombstones. And a special thank you for the photograph of Julia's; I would not know of her existence without your photo.

Hi, oceandome,

I agree. There is one woman in Frederick who is impossible to deal with. Beware of those with a little bit of power!!!! I am always happy to add to or transfer any memorial to family. It brings me joy to know that I took that photo and now there is documentation of the existence of that person.

After my dealings with the above person and she refused to make any changes to my 1st cousin, nor to transfer it to me, I contacted Find A Grave, and told them what was happening, and even quoted from her email to me. They intervened and transferred that gravestone and any others with the same last name into my keeping. Boy, I never expected that and I was thrilled.

So please, copy my profile and use it. I think most of us feel exactly the same way.

I will submit it again, and use O-30 and see what happens.

Thank you so much for trying to find the gravestone of the Burgans. The office, you say, has no record of their burial. All I have is the death certificate that notes they are buried there, but of course, there is no specificity as to where they are buried.

So I have taken them out requesting a gravestone, because it seems to be a dead end for right now, but I do thank you for your help, as I will note what you have said on my Ancestry account under their names so future genealogists will understand why we can't find their gravesite.

Thanks for all you do,

RE: Mt Carmel
Thanks for taking the time to look at the grave site. I appreciate any info you may have or can share. I know the cemetery is quite a mess and I haven't attempted a visit in several years due to the overgrowth.

RE: Mt Carmel
Hello Oceanmdone,

Thank you for the photo request help. I am not sure who you are speaking of in your message to me, but the name I requested was for Lillian Lorraine Balk. I do not know who the Euler or Omiess name belong too? Is this confused with someone else's photo request? I think my request for Lillian Lorraine Balk was in section N.

Thank you so much for my Thanksgiving gift! Your photo is spectacular and easy to read! I love it. I hope I can get all my family members recorded. Your note of who is buried nearby is a gift within itself.

RE: Littletons at Mt Carmel
Thank you so much for the pictures and the extra work you did as well, including the new memorials. It's wonderful to get as much information as possible but please only do what you can reasonably and safely. What you have already done is greatly appreciated. Thank you for noting the new memorials.
