I love the history of a town. It's people, it's heritage, the culture brought from differnt countries. The history found in cemeteries is, to me, just as interesting. Who were the people? How did they live? |
For those looking to find a long lost relative, loved one or friend, I'm happy to do what I can to help in your search.
After reading a detailed genealogy for my husband's family, I searched for and found his ancestors' graves in a nearby cemetery. That visit sparked my interest in genealogy.
I've since added to my husband's family tree, finding his grandfather's family. And I've begun to build my own family history. As an adoptee, that's particularly meaningful to have. My (1st) mother sent me the information in her grandmother's diary before she passed away. With that, I am able to find my ancestors and share that information with my extended family.

The Measure of a Man
Not "How did he die?"
But, "How did he live?"
Not "What did he gain?"
But, "What did he give?"
These are the units
to measure the worth
of a man, as a man,
regardless of birth.
Not "What was his station?
But, "Had he a heart?"
And "How did he play
his God given part?"
Was he ever ready
with a word of good cheer,
to bring back a smile,
to banish a tear?'
Not "What was his church?"
Nor "What was his creed?"
But, "Had he befriended
those really in need?"
Not "What did the sketch
in the newspaper say?"
But "How many were sorry
when he passed away!"

Hi, Robin -
You are most welcome. I am glad I could help.
|Diana Enos Hammock||Walter Adams memorial|
You took a grave photo for me but did not find the headstone. Another lady did find it and posted a photo. Would you please remove your photo since it does not have the headstone in it.
Memorial number 70318079. Thanks for your time anyway.
Hi Robin, glad to see you on here!!! :D

I hope it works in your favor regarding your relative. Last summer I took a photo at Hillside Memorial Park of a name plaque in a mausoleum where the person had passed away some time ago (in the 80's I think?) and the surviving family members had not ordered the name plaque. When one relative decided to check it out, she found out the plaque had been paid for, pre-need, but the family had not actually placed the order. Apparently, it might not be an automatic thing at some cemeteries, because the place that actually makes the plaques is a different business entity than the cemetery.
|B.J. Waters||RE: W Subke|
Please contact the cemetery! The engraving may have been paid for pre-need, it may not have been ordered after he was buried. I have heard of that kind of scenario, where the family members forgot to order it, etc. But I would contact the cemetery staff to be sure, because if that is the case it could save you some $$.
