Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

For The Fallen(excerpt)
Poem by Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)
"Do not regret growing old. It is a privilege denied to many."

"The love of a child goes beyond time, culture or boundaries".

For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. ~ William Penn
"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."
Leonard Nimoy 1931 - 2015
"Family is not an important thing. It's everything."

"Let us before we die, gather up our heritage, and offer it to our children." Will Durant, "The History of Civilization"
A Prayer for Genealogists

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient road
On which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.
--by Curtis Woods
We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted. Each of us contains within ... this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations, sacred memories, and future promises.
Edward Sellner
SO much of what is placed on Find A Grave is searchable, but in order to assist others in their research, I also use

Disasters strike us all, and it helps to put family moves into context when they abruptly move, relocate or - frankly - just disappear!

Please take a look, it's an interesting site.
In the eastern United States you can often "discover" old cemeteries by the daffodils.

Daffodils are not a feast for deer, they multiply and spread on their own and were often the flower of choice to plant at grave sites.

And I love the sunny, bright daffodil, reminding me the long winter will soon be over and I can get out again to seek and document ancestors - both my own and for others living too distant to be there in person.

If I have "planted" a daffodil on a memorial, it is one which I have directly touched or made an addition.

My Find A Grave 'anniversary' date is 12 June 2007

RE: Duplicate memorials
Thank you for being so helpful. What I am attempting to do is discover more about my paternal grandmother who was married to Edward R Johnson. Her name was Kate Brady (Katherine Brady Johnson) and she had a sister Margaret. Her mothers maiden name was King. Their parents were born in Ireland. They were raised by an Aunt who took them out of an orphanage in Baltimore, MD. I get no where with this? I am grateful for any help you can give me. I see you are a Johnson too and how are you related to me?

Smallwood Cemetery in Indiana
I could not find Alice Goens in the cemetery but did find a Brandi Goen. I will add it today. We may go back to visit that cemetery again but there were not that many illegible stones.

Me again

I think I got Martha and Patsy put in place in our tree.

Know I am moving on to Ben F Chesnut Sept 15 1904 -
July 9 2004 and his wife Mary Reams .

I found the O bit which I was going to add in Find A Grave but the O bit says Norvell Cemetery and Find A Grave has him listed in Pitsburg Cemetery 149965701

I called mom and she said when she had a warm day she would go to the cemetery and see which one he is in.
We have Mary Reams in our tree in 3 other places with differen men so I have my work cut out for me on this one.
