3mar2015 - 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.
2sep16 - Sincere Thanks is given to Contributor John Stoutimore for his toilsome contribution of the original Copied, Pasted, edited and compiled obituaries, marriage notices and other pertinent publicly printed news data from various sources which he kindly posted to thousands of memorials across this nation; for which F-A-G has soundly reprimanded him for.
My primary Find-A-Grave foci are the following cemeteries for which I clip Death Notices:
-ANC - Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington,Va
-CG - Columbia Gardens Cemetery, Arlington, Va
-MC - Merrifield Cemetery, Falls Church, Va
-NMP - National Memorial Park, Falls Church, Va
-OC - Oakwood Cemetery, Falls Church, Va
-QNC - Quantico National Cemetery, Pr Wm Co, Va
Anyone having interest in ANC & QNC, primarily, that would like to add memorials and/or death notice data, I have been amassing them since I joined FAG and could use your help. Just send me an e-mail indicating your focus and I'll arrange as many as you would like to handle and mail/deliver them to you. Thank you in advance for your consideration. Special Note: Due to several prolific FAG Contributors, most of the Death Notices I have clipped have been memorialized with only the basics: name, dates and cemetery data. Many of the DNs have relatives, living and predeceased, plus biographical data that are truly worthly of posting, and Linking. This type of enhancement requires submitting the data to the original Contributor or transfer of the memorial to other caring Contributors willing to do this further step. My sincere thanks to those who have offered to assist me in the past.
To all those wonderful people who add photos, provide link data, etc, and those who simply offer 'flowers' to any of my memorials, I humbly Thank You on behalf of those who have passed on.
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you. - Author Unknown
*You know who you are when you know who they were.* Per FAG Contributor Treva Poe.
*Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed, forever dear.*
No terror has death, or the grave,
To those who believe in the Lord -
Who know the Redeemer can save,
And lean on the faith of his word;
While ashes to ashes, and dust
We give unto dust, in our gloom,
The light of Salvation we trust,
Which hangs like a lamp in the tomb. - T.
Unable are the loved to die.
For love is immortality.
~ Emily Dickinson ~

Lastly, a few thoughts on genealogy . . .
- The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. . . Herbert Spencer
- Nothing makes our ancestors seem more real than to walk where they walked and to stand where they finally came to rest.
- Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories. . . Unknown

- "There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." ~Author Unknown
"When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." - Fredrick Beekner/'Calmly Searching'
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

love leaves a memory no one can steal."

You requested a photo of her stone. I am sorry to disappoint you but, the death date is no longer visible. It is buried. I am posting the picture I have taken, you can barely make out the DOB. I'm sorry, I tried.

|David Hunsberger||Finding some Abbey Interments at NMP...|
I'm finding quite a few names at National Memorial Park that were originally at Abbey Mausoleum, and were moved. You created records for many of them at Abbey; I have photos of their crypts at NMP. Please send me an email so we can figure out the best way to handle these.

Thanks! Yes I'm familiar with it but I forgot they had some pictures. I have submitted edits for the dates. Also, my family is good friends with the Ulfers. I just talked to Helga the other day.

Thank you for the interesting info about Annie and her grandson. Edits have been made. I also made a note in her bio that she is the paternal grandmother of Ronnie Dove.

Not that close...Silas Munch married Rebecca Jane Barr in Fort Valley and was the only one there to vote for A. Lincoln in 1860 and had to leave. His younger brother Addison married my g-gm's younger sister Rebecca Cullers. Fort Valley was pretty much a closed society in the past.

Hello Fellow Graver!
Regarding your email:
I own a 2nd home in the area - it is a family home of which I am the 3rd generation.
Also,several of my ancestors are in the same cemetery, as well as many surrounding cemeteries. So, when I visit, I try to get in some cemetery photos and I also work with the Aurora Country sexton (Pat Knigge) to get accurate information.
I am not clear as to what you would like adjusted on the memorial. Are you a family member? Just let me know and I will be happy to help in any way that I can.
