PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON TO REQUEST TRANSFERS.... ;)|
When I first discovered Find a Grave it was for famous interments only. It wasn't until mid 2000 that I heard they were allowing non-famous burials. That's when I immediately made an account and started adding family to memorialize and leave tokens for them. I've been a member now for over 15 years and just within the last two to three years did I start thinking about all the others who may be forgotten. I have entered several from the cemetery transcriptions and then photographed entire cemeteries. Not only for those who have gone before us, but also in the hopes of helping others and eventually seeing them in the hands of family again. If I have created any memorial that any family wishes for it to be removed please let me know and I will immediately take it down. Please just know that all my memorials are made to remember them. For any memorials anyone would like a transfer of please use the Edit button on said memorial. I have no problems transferring them. I love seeing them back with family. ;)
Wo, to him who can trample down without emotion the grass of the church yard, and who breathes not within his heart a fervent prayer at sight of those tombs, where so many affections, so many hopes are swallowed up, and many we will hope are at rest in the Lord. The only thing certain is the destruction of the body, and the immortality of the soul; for that frail body, dust and forgetfulness. For the soul, a celestial dwelling where it will enjoy eternal happiness, if it has not betrayed the purpose of its mission, in the course of its short pilgrimage on earth. Yes! tread lightly in the cemetery; there kneel in that place consecrated to grief and meditation. It seems impossible, even to approach such a spot without the soul being benefited; it will probably awaken some holy recollections of childhood or some warning of the shortness of life. What a volume are those tombs; how eloquently do they speak to the heart, at least to those who understand their language --how forcibly do they announce the nothingness of terrestrial things! Yes! it is in these pages, traced by the hand of death, that we may study and learn the necessity of virtue -- If man approached more frequently the resting place of the dead he would not remain so indifferent to the mild voice of conscience.

The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?

Love geocaching, photography, graveyards, & hiking. I've been to quite a few cemeteries here in Perry & surrounding counties. I love being able to help people find their ancestors & post photos for them.
I have no problem transferring as long as they're not in my direct line. Ancestors I'm researching are:
Jones, Rizer, Woltz, Allen, Forsythe, Wilkinson, Mauller, Shepler, Fox, Pierce, Gobel, England, Green, Conn, Young, Harper, Dunnick/Dunnock/Dunnuch, Gorsuch, Landis, Butler, Tiller, Yontz, Coleman, White, Mossburg, Schultz, Shallenberger, Camby, Alden, Cole, Wroth, Lovelace, Hunter, Weber, Leininger, Stage, Wright, Buzzard/Bussard/Bussert, & Julien......just to name a few.
Husband's side: Lantz, Walker, Dunlap, Snodgrass, Wherry, Abbott, Keckler, Johnson, Ross, Thomas, Griffith, Perrin, Nofsker, Beall & Beal.

Thanks so very much for fulfilling my photo request for Marie Lantz's stone. I truly appreciate your time and efforts!
|Larry Cunningham||RE: Geocaching|
I remember that CITO very well, I had a good time with some wonderful people. I remember meeting you there, it's great to hear from you again! Since then, I haven't attended that many geocaching events, and my caching has gradually decreased. Too many other things I'm interested in doing, like haunting old graveyards with my camera. Let's keep in touch; let me know when you're up for some hiking or cemetery exploration!
We seem to share quite a few interests. What's your geocaching name? I've been larryc43230 for more than 10 years now.

Thanks MissT for the Kearnes picture.
What a great day to go picture taking!!
Have a great week.
|Henry S. Dillon||RE: Harry Andy Dillon|
Thanks for your contact and thanks for your offer.
Harry Andy Dillon's family line traces back to Hamilton Dillon and mine traces back to Hamilton's brother Vincent Dillon. It's not a big thing one way or the other. I was really hoping you might be related and have some info that I did not have. Best regards,
Henry S. Dillon
