Bio and Links
Bio Photo My direct research efforts are primarily based on my grandparents - Harness, Vermillion, Egnor, and Stewart mostly in Indiana and West Virginia. I have enjoyed seeing the grave sites of my ancestors so I hope that my input is as well enjoyed by others.

I have created and contributed memorials for the benefit of others to find family members, as well as, memorialize those who have gone before us.

Please feel free to use my photos for personal use only. They are not copyrighted and have been posted for your use.

The comment below was copied from another find-a-grave member.

I think it is really a shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started 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 are people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.

My apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them.

Leslie D. Arndt 1923-2004
I see that you are related to Leslie Arndt. I am doing research on this Arndt line, and would like to know if you have any information on his ancestors.

I have hit a brick wall on his great-grandfather, Christian Arndt (1835-1912).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia

A former large volume F-A-G Contributor had a dispute with Find-A-Grave staff and Deleted some 80% or more, of their contributed memorials, estimated to be about 40,000 or so. Thus causing the rest of us local Contributors, over the last year or more, to re-enter those family, friends and distant relatives we noted were missing.

Once F-A-G had decided to take positive action, they reloaded all the Deleted memorials from that former F-A-G Contributor, on Wednesday, 25feb2015. F-A-G staff, undoubtedly knew they would cause tens of thousands of Duplicates, and assigned their staffer, known as 'ProjectMgr' to work through their Merge process.

Please be patient and allow F-A-G to work through the entire group of Duplicate memorials.

Thank you.

this gentleman is actually buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery rather than Fort Lyon as on his memorial. A lot of military burials are listed incorrectly. I notified the creator. You can check this on the Veterans Affairs Grave Locator website. I now always check there before I drive to the National Cemeteries to take photos. Good luck!

Manly and Grace Dent Stewart
I noticed that you left virtual flowers and identified Manly and Grace Stewart as your great-grandparents. I have transferred management of both of their memorials to you. I hope you don't mind that I did it without you asking. It just seemed the right thing to do. Nina

Naomi, I just transferred Find A Grave Memorial for Eva to you. Thanks for emailing me. She is no relation of mine but I photographed a lot of the headstones in the Fletcher Cemetery.
