Cemeteries are "a memorial and a record. (They are) not a mere field in which the dead are stowed away unknown; it is a touching and beautiful history, written in family burial plots, in mounded graves, in sculptured and inscribed monuments. (They tell) the story of the past, not of its institutions, or its wars, or its ideas, but of its individual lives,--of its men and women and children, and of its household. (A cemetery) is silent, but eloquent; it is common, but it is unique. We find no such history elsewhere; there are no records in all the wide world in which we can discover so much that is suggestive, so much that is pathetic and impressive." ~~ Joseph Anderson, American clergyman (1836-1916) |
For a very touching poem, see "Dear Ancestor" by Walter Butler Palmer.
Please use Find a Grave guidelines, if you wish me to transfer management, or edit/add information (please ask via Edit tab/SAC link). ~~
I believe obituaries provide much needed genealogical information that if not captured will be lost. With the increase in cremations, obituaries might be all that outlives our ancestors. Since obituaries are already published in newspapers and on the internet, anonymity has already been compromised.

|KKW||LInking a parent to a child|
I'm not sure how to link the parent to the child using the edit button when memorial is maintained by someone other than myself. I tried to and it does not give me any options for adding people. If possible, could you link Johnie Pearl McDaniel-47924043 with her parents: Wilena C.Boyd 32804490 and James T. Boyd 32804462?
I appreciate your help in this matter.

Thank you for all you do with the memorials. I was wondering how you had information on this man. He was an uncle of mine through marriage. His wife, Johnie Pearl was my mother's sister. Anyway, you state with your information that he had a Purple Heart. Thank you in advance for any help.

|James Ray Nugget||Hi...Haven of Rest Cemetery-Barbour County, Alabama|
Is there any contact information such as a phone number or address on the Haven of Rest Cemetery (Maybe also named Russell Haven of Rest?
|Linda McDaniel||Trellis Fay Sellers|
We have been to Emory's Chapel Baptist Church Cemetery looking for Trellis Fay Sellers' grave. She died on August 30, 1967. We were unable to find her grave so it must be unmarked. Do you know of any way to find out exactly where she is buried? I noticed that you have a memorial number on her information. What exactly is this number? We appreciate any information you can give us on this. Thanks so much.
