9th generation Eastern Kentuckian.|
Currently living in central Texas.
I have enjoyed genealogy since 1992.
Good practices for memorials and photos:
*Check different variations of the name before adding a memorial. Last name Talmadge or Tallmadge for example. Chris Ross Smith might be listed as C.R. Smith, Chris Smith, Ross Chris Smith, etc. There should only be ONE memorial per person!!
*For larger cemeteries, make every effort to locate a cemetery map before adding memorials so you can list the correct plot and/or section. Many cemetery maps are available online. This is especially important for folks who want to find that grave in person.
*CROP AND EDIT YOUR PHOTOS BEFORE UPLOADING! Straighten them, remove distracting background elements, and especially remove bird poop. Who wants that in their photo?
*Please don't add memorials for the living! If there is no date of death on a stone and I cannot find proof of death for that person I don't add a memorial.
*If there are two names on a stone and one is living, I choose to remove the living person's date of birth from the headstone photo. In this day of identity theft, why be a contributor to that? Just Photoshop the date out with the eraser tool.

Thank you for taking the time to photograph the cemetery and post Geraldine's headstone.

I just came to notice the nice photos of various relatives in San Marcos, for which I thank you. It's always nice to see the ones I'll probably never get to in person.

Thank you for the transfer Cheryl. I appreciate it and all the pic's that you have taken. Hopefully I will be able to visit a lot of these graves in person. I am just now discovering most of my family history on paternal side of my family.

I would appreciate the transfer to me. I think I have quite a few relatives in that cemetery. Thank you so much for offering the transfer.

Could you let every one know that Henly Cemetery and Flatreek Cemetery is the same one. It's entrance is just w of intersection of 290 and Pederales State Park, the gate (Drive)is right after the new beer joint on the right side of 290 W heading to 281.
You can call up both cemeteries and one has about 20 more names in it.

Thank-you very much for your work and your kindness,
The Bryant Clan.
Thanks ever so much for the links you established. Again, sorry for my incompetence and confusion. I appreciate your timely responses to my requests!

Thank You for adding the photo. Sorry for the delay but we had worm-virus problems for a few days.
Mary (mom), forwarded your message to me in reference to James E Crofoot listed as a cousin to Elmer Goodrich as posted on your photo that you placed on his memorial.
I did the research for our Crofoots in the Noble County, IN area. I did not find Elmer Goodrich listed as a cousin or any of the other names. James E also had a cousin named James Crofoot who was about the same age. He moved to Ionia County, MI and then to Isabella Co, MI. James E also had an Uncle and Grandfather with the name of James Crofoot, but they would have been much older than the Jame's pictured in the photo. The research still continues....James E had no children survive that I have found. His siblings inherited his estate. James E's cousin James up in MI did have children, so maybe these names are associated with the in laws of one of the James'?
If you have any more info, that you could send along with the first names of the Goodrich, Whirledge, Morrison, or other family names along with locations I will continue to research and find if I can find any connections. I did find those names associated very very distantly to Mom's other lines, but they were not related to James E.
Thank You again, J R Nash

Wow, nice detailed image of memorial!
I realize you've relocated to Texas and this memorial's in Kentucky yet wonder if you retained separate detail pics of names and dates, and additional side views of the memorial available? (My gggg grandfather is an uncle of George, Judith's husband.)
Thanks for sharing.
