Bio and Links
Bio Photo I would like to thank all of the volunteers who take the time to enter the SACs and information I send to them. I do research the information with Census, birth/marriage/death records and obituaries before I submit the request.

In response to an email I sent to a librarian at the Brooklyn Collection of the Brooklyn Public Library, I was told it is okay to retype an obituary or a death notice, in whole or in part, from the collection at the BDE and post it to FindAGrave memorials. The newspaper should be cited as the source. It is an orphan publication since the publisher is no longer in business so there is no copyright infringement.

************************

Please visit Marcy Border's memorial, a 9-11 survivor who recently succumbed to stomach cancer and Cassandra Ann Morton's memorial, a murder victim who's case is still unsolved.

************************

Please DO NOT POST DUPLICATE HEADSTONE PHOTOS ON ANY MEMORIALS I CREATE OR MANAGE. There is no reason to have two (or more) headstone photos. If the memorial is un-sponsored there is limited space. If your photo shows more detail than mine, please contact me via email to discuss it.

************************

I will transfer memorials unless it's my direct ancestor or I'm more closely related than the requester. My goal is to reunite memorials I have created to family members. You can send the request via the suggest any other correction link under the edits tab.

************************

You are welcome to use any photos that I have taken and posted on FindAGrave for personal use and/or not-for-profit genealogical Web sites. Please reference Find A Grave and the memorial number that you copied the photo from.

RE: McInerney
That was very kind of you to send me the McInerneys. Harold's wife Mary was the granddaughter of my 2nd great grandma's sister, Catherine Parker Maloney. So Mary Florence Maloney McInerney and I share my 3rd Great Grandparents, Leonard Parker & Mary York Parker. I'll go through them all & add what I have about their lives. Thank you!

Esther Big Day
Thank you for the edit suggestions to Esther Big Day's memorial. I like to have a lot of genealogical info. on my memorials but given that this was a self imposed project to capture as many graves in this neglected cemetery as possible, while working in the area for a few months, I knew too little. I appreciate your contributions and hope it brings the family some gratification to see their loved one memorialized well.

RE: Mary Goodman
Hi Christina,
My best friend is a Goodman (Lee Goodman Starkel/Kansas) and I made a family tree for her in Ancestry. I was just doing a bit of updating. Mary Francis Smith Goodman is her 2nd great grandmother.
Thanks for the correction. I was thrilled to see Find A Grave info giving Mary Francis' parents' names because we hadn't yet found that bit of information. Love doing genealogy and love the community it creates.

Henry Straub (1907-1962)
Dear Christina, I live in the Columbus Ohio area and I have family members (Hoover/McInturf) buried at Green Hill Cemetery in Johnstown Ohio. Johnstown Ohio is a 25-30 min ride outside Columbus, Ohio. I ran across the grave marker of Henry Straub (1907-1962). Henry Straub was born in NYC (Manhattan). His father's name I believe is Henry Straub also and I also believe he may be buried in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. If you are able to find out more information on Henry's father (DOB) maybe where his wife is buried Agnes Straub (Sweden)? Sadly, Henry Straub (1907-1962) took his life (suicide). There was not a lot of effective treatment for depression years ago i.e. Prozac, Zoloft etc... Take Care, William C. Hoover RN MSN

Info
Christina, I know you are looking for Howards today as I have followed you in linking. I just want to tell you a place to look in this area that proves to be a lot of information. www.dcplibrary.org this is our Library in the next county. Look for Genealogy, then look for the Owensboro area obituary index. This index goes back to early 1840's to the present. I found Barnett Johnson Sr. that was married to Sallie Howard, he is with his second wife. Lot of info on him. I wanted to find anything that said where Sallie and Mary Ann were buried. Also this is a free search, some on the library you need a membership. This is the obituaries out of our local newspaper. I Love it and use it almost everyday. Just a thought, I know sometimes you just run out of places to look.
Blessings
Anita

Howard
I was so happy to see that you moved them to the Buck Creek Cemetery in McLean Co. I went into the DAR on Groves Howard, his daughter Amelia married Samuel Charles Harrelson, then down to me.
The information on James is from a obituary database from the library. They might not have stones. I will see what I can find.
Blessings
Anita
