Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping others out. As well as working on my family history. If I can help in my area let me know. I will try to help get your photo and or obituary, if possible.

However, after going out of my way to get pictures and the such, I would appreciate it if Marcia would stop trolling the findagrave site and nit picking at my and "other" contributors work, effort and help. We are all adults, or so should be.

I am human and do make mistakes, just like the rest of us. (Whether some want to admit it or not is still out for debate. LOL)

If you find a problem, please be kind when asking for corrections to be made. Don't ASSUME that all the information on the memorial was made by me. You know the saying "DON'T ASSUME-it'll make an ass out of you!" LOL Most would agree that a polite contact is the best kind of contact.

In the event you find memorials that need to be linked. Please provide proof that it is husband and wife buried together. I've gotten wrong information. What a headache that was. So please provide proof. Thanks!!

Currently I am inputting information from cemetery books. I am not trying to have a bunch of memorials under my number WHO CARES???
What I care for is to list the forgotten, that didn't have a headstone or the headstone is missing for whatever reason. For those that are searching for loved ones. Not knowing where in the "county" they are resting. Since inputting the cemetery book info. I have had several people contact me because I had solved mysteries where their relatives are buried at. That has been rewarding. It trumps the "negative" ones.
So fellow findagravers, the cemetery entries are a great source for information, if you can't get out to cemeteries, entering from the cemetery books would be greatly appreciated.

This helpful info. below came from Eva Pippin Flowers (#47244686)
When requesting how to be able to click on name and then taken to their site:
< a href="">NAME< /a>

Please copy and paste the above statement and then delete the space between the first < and "a" and then after the last name< and /.

Found this wonderful writing by: Thelma Greene Reagan.

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

God Bless America!!!

link correction.
Memorial #114746661 for John B. McCabe shows a newspaper article telling of his wife and child dying on same day. The article should say his wife and grandchild died the same day. My previous post with the article of grandmother and grandchild show this. Just needed to let you know the other article is misleading, and that's probably why the relationship links are messed up. Thanks, Diane Koenig

Need birthdate and relationship correction
Hello, could you please correct Memorial #114747729, the parents listed for this young child are not correct. The listed parents are actually his grandparents. Notice Catherine Wagner McCabe died April 3, 1876, the day after her grandson died, who actually died on April 2, 1876. Please see newspaper article below. This proves the relationship of the grandmother being buried with her grandson. Thank-you for correction. --Diane Koenig

A Sad Case of Sudden Death.
Only Sunday last, a little boy, son of A. J. McCabe, four years of age, died after a few hours sickness. The sudden death of the child was a sad bereavement to the family, and especially to the mother of Mr. McCabe, an old lady living in his family. She took the death of her grandson greatly to heart, and Monday before the funeral, several times made the expression that it was sad that the child just entering life should be snatched away, while she, old and decrepit was left to live on.
While the family were at supper, the members were startled by a sharp cry from Mrs. McCabe, and at the same time horrified to see the blood spurt from her mouth in a great stream. The aged lady fell over and immediately expired, death having ensued from hemorrhage. Preparations for one funeral, were changed to arrangements for two, and Tuesday the funerals of grandmother and grandson were preached at the Baptist church, and their remains were laid side by side in two graves in Oakwood cemetery.

Note: Sunday, April 2, 1876 A. J. McCabe son died. A. J. McCabe is Andrew J. McCabe.
Monday, April 3, 1876 Catherine Wagner McCabe (Andrew J. McCabe's mother) died.

John Bryant 1874-1893
Will you please look at John's information that reads: Information from Chockley Cemetery records. Birth day info & Death state info. from J L Bryant (#47514108)

The confusion is that we do not know if this means John Bryant, my Gfather's brother, has the middle name of L and that -death state info from J.L. Bryant means HIS middle name or that J.L. Bryant is the person who gave info. J.L. Bryant is a living person #47514108 that I have talked with and he is a researcher for a Bryant line. You can see the confusion and he stated that he has no knowledge of my relative, John, listed in this bio. You are the creator, labs2006. Please see how you posted (#47514108) because that member has no knowledge of this deceased person. Thank you.

J L Bryant
John Bryant - Chockley Cemetery
Dear Labs,
Please bear with me. I'm trying to understand the note currently on memorial # 129600190, that states life/death dates being provided by me.

Did I ever communicate with you on this memorial? because I don't think I did, and I'm awfully certain these life/death dates were not from me.

Appreciate helping clear this up.
Thanks, Jeff Bryant

Silas Preuett
I noticed on your Find A Grave page for my 3x Great Grandfather, Silas Preuett you have his father listed as Reuben Pruett,my 4x Great Grandfather a revolutionary patriot.

You submitted copies of what looks like a bible. Where did you obtain these copies of the bible pages? We are trying to do research for a historical organization and would love to obtain a better copy of them.

Thank you so much for your assistance in this matter.

George Washington Coghill
Hi, my name is Jerry Jackson and George is my great grandfather. Through our local Mid West Genealogy Society here in Wichita, Kansas, I'm doing a research project on George during the civil war. Are you related to him? I'm looking for more information on his time in the civil war. I did find one error on the marriage date and you can check this out if you want. He was married to Sarah Jane Eiffert on Mar 31, 1864. It's on her find-a-grave page and I have a copy of their marriage record page book. If you have any further information for me please contact me.

John Bryant
John Bryant died 1893 and is at the Chockley Cemetery in McDonough County, Illinois. He may be the brother of my GGfather, William Aaron Bryant. We can not see what is written at the bottom of his grave marker. Will you please visit there and let us know what is reads? His parents may be William and Mary Bryant of Eldorado. Thank you.
