|Bio and Links|
We are ALL part of this magnificant GIANT historical jigsaw puzzle!|
I always have and still do love puzzles. And I have been bitten by the genealogy research bug for years!
Better than fiction!
I am NOT involved with findagrave for the numbers. I research every person for whom I create a memorial for accuracy and in an attempt to include as much information as possible.
Whenever possible, I also try to link family members. I feel that is most important and a way to have them all 'reunited.'
About death certificates - I ask politely that you please don't post any to my memorials. I like to honor their life and history. My humble opinion is that their death is a personal/private matter for not only the deceased but also the family/descendants. I do welcome any photos of the individual so we can see them when alive.
This is a marvelous venue to not only recognize, remember and HONOR those who have passed before us, but also to assist families in the future in finding their ancestors and hopefully even seeing a photo of their headstone.
I welcome any additonal information or changes to my memorials and will be very happy to link to family members.
My sincere thanks to all findagrave contributors and photographers for all you have done for me and the entire findagrave community!
Post Script: I am disappointed that 'some' contributors do not fill edit message requests -- don't include additional info provided or link to other family members requested. I realize we are ALL volunteers here and everyone's lives are busy. However for those who simply ignore SAC's, I think that is very unkind. At least the courtesy of a message back to me or a transfer if you don't care to make edits, please? I'd be happy to make them.
And if you request edits, changes, links, transfers, please do it with kindness. "Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man."

|Thomas Snively||RE: James at Old Point|
Old Field Point Cemetery is in Moon in Mathews County, Va. and I believe it may have been referred to as Smith-James due to the majority of names buried there. Still trying to locate James Cemetery since none of those names have shown up anywhere else. I'm pretty tenacious and will continue my quest.
|Candeux||RE: Esmer headstones|
You're quite welcome; it's a pleasure to assist. You caught me at a good time: I usually go to the LDS Family History Center on Wednesday nights to look at the Loudon Park microfilm and find the plot location, and I had time this morning on the way to work to find the grave.
As you can see, the markers at that site are not in great shape, so there may be other Esmer markers that are fallen and covered over. The only other names buried at that site are these:
Elsie I. Fensterer (1896-1919; wife of Wm. Fensterer)
Clara T. Fensterer (1864-1964)
Daniel Hayden (1839-1912)
Louise Hayden Rapp (1880-?)
I will be adding these memorials eventually (once I get enough to submit a spreadsheet), but if you are interested in them, feel free to create memorials and I will upload the photos.
If you have reason to believe that there are other Esmers buried there, I can check the records for that plot and see who else is buried there. As I recall, there is another plot nearby that also has members of the Esmer family; I will visit that plot and see what I find.

|Diann||RE: West Woods cemetery|
The GPS lists the address as Millsboro, but the cemetery we visited is in the Gumboro area. I'll do a little more checking. Do you have the name of the funeral home that did the service for William in 1977?

I photographed Apolonia Zindl's headstone today, around her are the following:
On the left:
Sebastino Derrico, 1890 - 1949
Philoemen Berube, 1875 - 1949
On the right:
Frank Burke, 1884 – 1950

No, I didn't receive these requests, but did recently add their photos while at Carey Cemetery.
Photos posted - you can find them at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gsr&GSiman=1&GScid=104358&GSfn=&GSln=wilkerson
Your request for the parental link has been posted. I regret that it took me so long to get this done for you as so many doctor appointments etc. for breast cancer have occupied me recently. Thank you for the updates. Jan

Have added family link as suggested.
I'll have to return to the cemetery and look for other family members (father / husband). I have only photographed about 1/4 of the cemetery - and am still adding memorials slowly. It's very close to my home so might make a quick jaunt over there today.
|Carl||RE: Griffiths--so many edits & links|
you're right...we make a good team :)
Best regards as always, Carl

I just remembered that I didn't get back to you on the Flushing cems.
As this site has them:
"Flushing Township" Cem. & "Flushing Friends" Cem. ARE the same cem.
Flushing TWP/Friends is just south of Flushing City Cem. on S.R. 331 inside Flushing village limits.

I agree with you that adding links to parents and spouses whenever known is a large part of the value of FindaGrave. It's a site where non-genealogists can learn about their families without joining anything or *becoming* genealogists and can post photos without paying anything. Those links add so much!
