|Bio and Links|
The past 10+ years I have been an avid researcher of my family (Heimerman(n)-Menges-Mahnke-Poe). These surnames are my parents. I began my search after I asked myself "Where did I REALLY come from?"|
My research has taken me to many cemeteries looking for headstone to place in Ancestry.com. I happened to stumble upon Find-A-Grave when a hint in Ancestry.com lead me here. Although I have not been real active here, but have always been interested in taking photos of headstones. That is when I signed up to volunteer my time.
Any pictures I upload to F.A.G. can be duplicated to paste elsewhere (Ancestry.com). I am not going to get upset if this happens. You do not have to ask my permission...just do it. After uploading, I delete all photos off of my computer. I do not save them unless they are part of my family.
If there is a family member that I have added and you want it transferred, ask and ye shall receive. I add them so that they have a memorial to go with the photo I took.
I don't spend my life on this website, but look at my emails daily.
P.S. Copied from another member's site which I concur with:
"I think it is a real shame what Find A Grave has evolved into. What started (one of the reasons) as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.
With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them."

You have posted some excellent photos from this cemetery. I know it is hard to get to, on private property and arrangements must be made with the property owner. I have a great many photo requests for there. If you will let me know if/when you plan to return, I will start submitting them. I know the markers have all been photographed for the Barry Co. cemetery site, but they don't care to add them to F-A-G memorials.

Just re-read your note under the pic of Mary's stone and realize you only said she was in the vicinity of L.I. Hudson, not WW. Sorry!
|Pamela Johnson Mortensen||Mary Hudson|
Thank you SO much for your trouble. Forgive me, however, for remaining as frustrated as ever regarding the birth/death dates of Mary, which you have indicated are too worn to read. I was hoping to be able find out that someone had misread the stone originally and that rather than 1880-1882, she was 1870-1872. This would then make it possible for her mother to be Laura Ione Walker, who died in 1871. Otherwise, I would have to speculate whether it was possible for her mother to be W.W.'s second wife, Elizabeth. Also - you have indicated that Mary is buried near W.W. and L.I. Walker. Actually, W.W. is buried in Granby Cemetery, where his second wife is buried. I can only assume that ALL of the stones in the Old Newtonian are as worn as Mary's, and it was for you to assume that William was there with Laura...=) Anyway, this will probably have to remain one of my mysteries. Thanks again for your help!! Pam
