Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Elizabeth Frye - 1932

My goal is not to have great numbers of memorials but rather great numbers of photos posted to aid those researching their families. So if I have a memorial that is related to your family, please request a transfer. Families should be together.

Families I'm researching include:

Lydia Gertrude King #119823337
Hi Lin! I had William Riley King's wife wrong. This is the final touch to the corrections to the right woman.
Would you be kind enough to add this bio for Lydia Gertrude King? Thank you!
Lydia Gertrude Sidensol was born August 25, 1876 in Wisconsin. The California death record shows her parents were Sidensol and her mother's maiden name was Stogdill. She married William Riley King in 1911. William's 1918 draft registry card shows they had moved west and were farming in Watsonville, California. They had two children; Mary G. King born in 1912 and William R. King born in 1913. Census of 1920: moved to Sonoma, California. William, age 45, was an auto mechanic. L. Gertrude was 42. Lydia Gertrude didn't spell out "Lydia" on many census, voting, and property records, using " L. Gertrude" instead. There are numerous census and voter registry records for both William Riley and L. Gertrude King. She passed away May 15, 1951 at Yolo County, California.

RE: Mary Jane Throckmorton
Hi Lin,
You are very welcome. I'm glad I could help. I fixed the photo so it is now right side up. I don't know why it wanted to go sideways at first.
Yes, you certainly may use the photo on your family tree. To me, that is what this is all about, is sharing and helping others. I have my tree on ancestry too. Most of the time people are willing to share photos, but I had this one lady once that almost got downright nasty about me using her findagrave photo on my family tree. I had half a mind to drive the several hundred miles down to Oklahoma and take my own photo just to spite her, but it wasn't even a close relative, so I took the photo down and just went without. It was a lesson learned to always either ask, or at least read the person that took the photo's bio, and sometimes they will already state to "feel free to use the photo's as you see fit." I did learn too that using a photo without permission is against findagrave's policy. Isn't it funny though that Ancestry now owns findagrave?
I was not able to read Mary's husband's name. It was right where the stone had obviously split at one time and was repaired and set in a concrete foundation, which is great, because otherwise your Grandmother's stone would have probably been ruined by now. One good thing is that it give's her age at the time of death which given the death date minus the age using the date calculator gives her a birthdate of May 8, 1817. Does that match what you have?
As old as this cemetery is, there are still people being buried there, in fact, while I was there today they were getting ready to inture someone.
Good luck in your research!

RE: Local Obits
This gets you access to the Twin Falls Newspapers additions from the Public Library.
Some obituaries are posted on the date of death and others you have to search dates following deaths if there was one posted.
If I can help let me know.'

James T. Nelson
"Thank You" so much for the wonderful photo to add to the family tree. I put a photo request in for his wife over at St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery last week. No one knows why James and her are buried in different cemetery's. I'm wondering if you could do me a favor the next time your at your local library and have a spare moment and look up his wife obit.

Thanks again Larry O.
