Bio Photo Hello!

I scout antique stores and websites that sell antique photos in order to pair up the grave with the person. I get lucky when the name is unusual enough and I have a date on the back of the photo with the state. After investigating, this usually this leads to success. Out of the dozens I have paired, I have been wrong once.

Nothing thrills me more than to give this lonely gravestone an identity. Also, the people in those old photographs should not be forgotten. I might do this because I don't have much of a family myself and no family grave site. I hope to find your relatives one day!

Photograph Removal
In September 2013, You inserted a photograph on my memorial for Hannah Macgraw Andrews Treen. At the time we both believed this was her photo.

However, I received an E-Mail last week from another member of Find A Grave, who pointed out that the photo is actually of one of her ancestors. Following is an excerpt from her E-mail.

"I am sorry to tell you that the photograph attached to "Hannah Magraw Andrews Treen" is really "Hannah Smedley Fernwalt Treen", my second great grandmother. Andrews-Treen Find A Grave Memorial # is 33414397; Fernwalt-Treen is # 177874685. When Nicoleta originally posted the photo I informed her of this, however, she did not address it (not even a response). The memorial was transferred to you without this knowledge. I built a tree around Frederick Saffrey Treen. I have two other Treen trees. I am trying to connect these families to Captain William Treen, the privateer in the Revolutionary War. I have connected one but not my main Treen tree. Maddening!

Respectfully yours,

Cathy Crawford"

I agree that Ms. Crawford's information proves that the photograph is of her ancestor, and not mine.

Inasmuch as you were the person, Nikkie, who inserted the photo into my Memorial, you are the only one who can delete it. I request that you remove the photo from my memorial to eliminate the possibility of future confusion.

Thanks for your past efforts as a member of Find A Grave !!

Hi Nicolina!

I'm writing re Rosemary Dawson, #129584431. I was just curious if you happened to find the photo of her as a baby in an antique store somewhere? She was my grandmother and I have a copy of the same photo, but am wondering if there are more out there I'm not aware of. Thank you!

STONE Family Photograph
I have "rescued" another photograph identified as Elwin STONE which matches the one you posted on findagrave, however, the photograph I have was taken in the 1890's so it could not have been the same Elwin STONE whose memorial page you've connected it to.

I believe instead that it belongs to one of the two Elwin STONE'S that were born in 1889 in Michigan. Not yet sure which, but I am working to connect with family and confirm which of the two it actually is.

Althea Hodson
Could you tell me the source of your photo of Althea? I have several of her. Her father John Wesley was my granduncle. I am always hunting for more Hodson photos. Thank you for putting her on there, she was a real cutey.

Photo of Hannah Macgraw Andrews Treen
Photo of Hannah Magraw Andrews Treen
Hi Nicolina:

I was looking today through the 60+ memorials I manage. All of these memorials are for ancestors of either myself or my wife. I have been gradually adding old photographs that I have of those ancestors to the memorials. Today, however I spotted a new photo that you added to my memorial for Hannah Magraw Andrews Treen. This is the first time that a co-contributor to Find A Grave has added a photo to one of my memorials.

Hannah's husband's parents were my mother's maternal grandparents. Although I have photographs of Frederick Saffery Treen's parents and some of his siblings, I had none of either Frederick or Hannah.

Thank you very much for adding Hannah's picture to her memorial !! Do you have any other photos of the Treen or Andrews Family members? How did you come across the picture? Are we related ??

Uncle Oscar and cousins
What a pleasant surprise photo. An uncle and cousins together. Thank you so much. By the way, I'm told I favor the young lady on the left, Retta or Maretta Fairlamb. Interesting since we are 87 years apart.
I located the photo on the sweb, forgootenfacesand by Teresa and just love the site. Thank you, Nicoine Emily Fairlamb Parker
