Bio and Links
Bio Photo FAG (FindAGrave) is a GRAVE REGISTRATION site.

Read the FAQs re transfers and editing. I reserve the right to decline edits.

Birth dates calculated from the stone will not be added; they are notoriously incorrect and anyone can do the calculation; it does not add info. Submit birth dates WITH PRIMARY SOURCE to "Edit/Suggest any other correction or addition". Birth dates submitted without a primary source will be deleted.

My pictures are for your personal use by citing me as the source.

Consider making virtual cemeteries for your ancestors/relatives if your request for a transfer puts you out of guidelines.

Requests not made correctly or left on this page will be DELETED.

You may add pictures yourself to any memorial by clicking on Add Photo then select grave, person, family, or other.

Let's all follow the guidelines and have a wonderful experience. Have fun searching this site.

Van Every
Thank you. Yes, should do that. Some time ago I had Florence Prehn do a lot of research on the Terpening family (when things were not available on the internet. Book has taken years of research and years to compile. Don't think I'll do another one, at least not one as big. This one is keeping my mind active; now almost 79 years of age.

RE: Maria Van Every
Hi Elsie,
Thank you for solving my problem with duplicate registrations. Have since found another family member I didn't know about in the same cemetery; name Catharine Litts. She was the sister of Hannah Rowland and Susannah Terpening and all were daughters of Maria Van Every. Don't think Susannah has a memorial.
I am compiling a family history (Van Every) which is due for publication later this year. Should be about 350-380 pages. Will have limited distribution, mainly in Australia, but maybe 3 or 4 copies will go to the USA of about 50 printed.
Question is, do I have your permission to put these three photographs in the book in black and white format? Have an absolute understanding of copyright obligations, so would not use them without an OK. (Won't feel bad if you say no.)
Regards, John
