Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(rev 21:4)

"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
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, in 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."
-Poem by Walter Butler Palmer


A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

James/Margaret Criser
Hello Barbara, I found that you have James Criser 1867-1953 and Margaret Criser 1879-1956. Both were buried in Greenbrier Burial Park. Last night, I found and learned that my 2nd great Uncle, William A. Morris died in Charleston, West VA on Nov 5, 1937 and buried in Greenbrier Burial Park. The informant on his death record was his wife, Mrs. Addie (Criser) Morris. I believe that Addie was his 3rd wife. I tried to find her on 1940 Federal Census. No Luck. Maybe she was remarried. I have no idea how old was she? I did call Restlawn cemetery office to get more information on William A. Morris where he was buried in Greenbrier Burial Park. I wonder if Addie Criser is related to James Criser as her sister. Maybe you know any information on her. If so then please share it with me. Look forward to a reply from you.

Pictures of headstones for Ernest Shapland. I installed the new one last year. I have viewed the old one numerous times but on this particular day the sun hit it just right and I could plainly see the name "Ernest"

Thank you for posting the death certificate for Miles B Herren. I cannot seem to determine the actual cemetery he is in so we can add to his memorial.
Another person was also kind enough to post his wife's (Lavina Boyd Herren) death certificate also which states Dye cemetery in Swords creek. Both are Swords Creek Virgina. Any help appreciated. Thanks again Barbara A in CA 47024710

RE: Fay and Edith Humphreys
I had the same problem. I have sent an email to the funeral home who conducted the services. Maybe they can answer that question

RE: Fay and Edith Humphreys
Thanks for your service. You couldn't find the grave because there wasn't a headstone until I recently installed it. The parents are buried in Portland, Multnomah, Oregon in the Terrace Lawn Memorial Park

Fay and Edith Humphreys
Records show you are the creator of memorial 82414166 (Fay Humphreys) and 82413764 (Edith Humphreys). These girls are my wife's aunts. Are you related to them? My wife is the daughter of Reva Alice Humphreys Anderson
