RE: Rebecca Bell Hurd
I've found that your source is first and foremost from cemetery readings, which I find the most credible. As well as the birth year matching the age, and also, many of Rebecca's siblings, as well as her parents are in the Dundee cemetery. I will be using this source. Thank you so much for your assistance!

RE: Rebecca Bell Hurd
For your information, here is the source that lists her in the Starkey Methodist cemetery, with a death year of 1861.

I've written to both sources to ask them where they got their information. I lean toward her death in 1864 because her age was listed as 39 years (on both sources) and from census records I tend to believe she was born in 1824.

I will let you know if I hear back. Again, thank you.

Hello. My husband's gggrandfather was Daniel McLane of Columbiana Co., OH. I have several xeroxed copies of civil war letters to and from him and his brothers, James and William McLane. Some mention Billy Adams. This could be your ancestor.
Daniel was in Co I 78th OH. His brothers were in different units. Let me know.

Dear Yee-Lin, I recently discovered the Find A Grave site of Christy Chakos, a Navy Veteran and talented artist who painted my portrait and become my dear friend. His wife died in March and they had no children, so I would be most grateful if you would leave him a tribute. Many thanks, Janice aka Tigress

Its just a wish,

A sparkle of hope,

A flash of colour,

Sprinkled with gold glitter,

To brighten up the dull weather,

Its nothing special,

Not amazing in any way,

Just a care blown across the sea's your way,

Its love and compassion,

Maybe small but meant always,

It should not be abandoned,

Its just manners after all is said,

Yet may a smile form across your face,

As you read the message below I wish to covey...



To a loved friend by Ryan S.

A Grateful Acknowledgement
My very dear friend, Ye-Lin!

Truly, I thank you so very much for most touchingly showing respect and interest in my parents' memorials by visiting them and leaving such wise and poetically fine words when you were available to do so. They were good people in this life and their spirits deserve this and bless your great kindness and superior friendship as I do!

Most people wish optimistically for a better future in the coming New Year but so often this is not to be. Whether fate is good or bad to us let us make the very best of the present and be grateful for our precious friends at Find A Grave.

God bless you, dear Ye-Lin, and your family to overcome your present problems and so regain a better happier period!

The holiday season has begun and the celebration of love is approaching. I will remiss not to say "thank you" for the many visits and flowers / tokens that my family has received from you. It means the world to me. I wish you and
your families a good and blessed Christmas season. Kind regards and God bless.


A little poem:
Always a little light more
In the wreath, which we sinuous,
That he to us luminous very much
through the dark hours

Two and three and then four!
All around the wreath, what a light!
And, thus we shine,
And, thus shines the room.

And thus shines the world
Slowly towards Christmas.
And: which she holds in her hands,
Knows around the blessing.

Faraway Thoughts So Close
Always remember ... your troubles are your friends too. The stuff friends are made of are all the adversities of life, however severe and hopeless, with just a modicum of the joys.

In your home and in your being a wave of prayer settles from these people, in this world and the world closer to God, who can only be completely happy when you are happy.

God bless you for your most dear and profoundly kind heart forever!

Joys Of Long Ago
The arrival of a festival so often awakens a feeling of excitement for the young who yearn for fresh wonders while those who have already lived such wonders yearn for those seemingly no longer present who made them so. But I am perfectly sure those special absent loved ones are very much with you still in your home. And thoughts are precisely as undetectable as spirits and as plentiful ...

God bless you on Thanksgiving Day!

Just stopped by to wish you a happy Thanksgiving.

From the spare time I spend here at F.A.G. You have always given me unconditional help and for all that I will always be grateful. Also for passing you knowledge and being so patient.
Thank you.

Winter Bonfires
Yours is a beguiling voice ... of ethereal sensitivity and lofty brilliance and with these extraordinary qualities you ennoble any memorial you visit with your marvelously choice words!

Happy childhoods are the very best foundation for adulthood but they also present an anticlimax to those who retain an uncorrupted heart. And in this way each step one makes is a reminder of how the world has changed around one. But there is lasting happiness in memories and they go wherever we go.

Your problematic year should improve for the woeful influence of Saturn has moved into another constellation and I will pray for you too. Though my life this year has also been as a Flemish winter landscape of centuries past those unknown indomitable lives now smile forever in a much fairer, lovelier world where survival is for a worthier purpose. So your personality and mine lost in stormy darkness have a divine sunburst awaiting to our loved ones!

Your exquisite words have given me so much joy! I am most appreciative. You are truly a treasure.
