***** If you have emailed me and have not heard back, please email me again. I never thought this would happen, but I am getting swamped with emails from FAG and ancestry.com, and I may have mistakenly missed a few emails. *****|
I will gladly transfer memorials to family, no matter the lineage, as well as to friends. :-) Any photo I take is yours. :-)
I have always been drawn to old cemeteries where I read and touch headstones as my way of remembering those who have passed on.
I am forever grateful to the following FAG members:
Janie #47619161, who located numerous documents for me about my great grandmother who died in 1912 and started my family tree on ancestry.com, giving me an incredible jump start on my ancestral research.
Clint Black #47536687, who was instrumental in helping me learn about my Wyoming ancestors from back when Cheyenne was still a territory.
Van Bender #47533106, who brilliantly took photos of all the damaged crypts at Saint Bernard Memorial Gardens after Hurricane Katrina. Without him I would have never known where my dear friend Dianne Agnes Bird May lays peacefully after a horrific death.
And those who have transferred memorials of my ancestors to me, filled photo requests for me, and have taken their time to help me along the way.
I have had the privilege of documenting an old forgotten Jewish cemetery in Hallettsville, Texas, that is in deplorable condition, and over 150 graves in a Historic Black cemetery in Colorado County, Texas.

|DavidC||RE: Kenny and Charlotte Peters|
You are very welcome. I too was surprised that they were not buried next each other. I found Kenneth's burial site first. He is nowhere near Charlotte. I did add some other Peters to findagrave. I did not know if perhaps they were also related.

You're very welcome! I have linked Rose's husband, Nathan, to his parents. Interestingly, the plot next to them is for David and Celia Krigman. Possibly David and Isaac were brothers?

I found the two gravestones but, they have no markings on them.. There was no small stone so, I would suggest neither one of them is Angeline Beebe.Looks like there may have been a cemetery at one time when they built the railroad tracks, and someone just put them out of the way.. They are down an embankment but look in great shape except there are no information on either one..
I think this was quite the adventure looking for these gravestones...I have the pictures of the two stones...

Please send any info you want place on his bio to me at email@example.com - once I transfer a memorial it cannot be transferred back

He might want to visit Cambridge American Cemetery-it's a 'must see'-feel free to give him my e-mail address.
|geoffrey gillon||RE: Your Bio|
I take it that you haven't physically Plashet Jewish Cemetery?
If you need photographs or just to check if certain individuals are interred there, do let me know.I have to make arrangements for it to be opened, but that's no problem.
|Owl63||Leslie and Alma Samuels|
I've posted the bio data you sent me to Leslie's memorial and then transferred it to you. I also transferred the memorial for Leslie's mother, Alma, for your maintenance. I have not yet determined Alma's plot data but will provide it to you or add it to the caption of her headstone picture.

Maurene, I had deleted this pic from my file, but was able to save the one on Joseph's site to my computer and then upload to Helene's site. The only thing is when you click on the picture on Helene's site, it does not enlarge for you to view. I will try to get another picture later and "re-upload". Patricia

There were stones lost in the storms but there are also a lot of unmarked now in some of these large cemeteries. All of the broadway complex was elevated after the 1900 storm and I have been told that road expansions also came into play but I do not know for sure. My wife's ancestor buried in Evergreen there was supposed to be buried on top of his father according to family legend. The City Burials records before the 1900 storm were destroyed but Rosenberg has some but they are really rough. The City Records for the city cemeteries started in October of 1900 i know this because I saw the book.

Yes you can use the pictures as you wish.
