Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Happy Trails!

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.

Oops...
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!

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
