"A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble. " Charles Spurgeon|
My wife and I have been doing genealogy work for many years and with the help of many we have made great strides in research. If you are visiting our site and see a link to any family grave listed in our virtual cemeteries, please email. Others listed as memorials are not our personal family lines, this information was gathered from other sources.
DELETIONS: Creation of memorials are not meant to offend, but are only placed for information and research purposes. IF you have a family member listed and do not want that memorial public, or picture, please notify and we will be happy to delete.
CORRECTIONS: Please use the "edit" tab to make corrections or provide links. We would be happy to add other biographical information. Please be professional in any other request.
TRANSFERS: Will be considered according to Find-A-Grave guidelines. Your request should be made from the page you wish to have transferred using the Suggest A Correction (SAC) form, please include your FAG ID# as well as the individual link FAG ID#.
CONTRIBUTE: Be involved, contribute (don't duplicate memorials) to the community by searching out your area, libraries, etc.. for graves that have not been located. Don't just use Find A Grave, asking for transfers, and not contributing in some manner. If this is your only intention FAG provides a way for you to collect memorials, by way of creating a "Virtual Cemetery". This will allow you to bring together information and family names.
You can see videos of certain cemeteries and family sites I have created at:
If you use information from any grave site or cemetery please site your source when available. Also, become a volunteer and work on a cemetery near you. Your work will benefit so many others.
Thank you for your help. With all of us working together we can do so much more with our family histories.
Have a blessed day.
Yours in research, SOF <><

|Velcro||RE: Sponsoring Fitch Memorials|
You are very welcome. I try to sponsor all of my direct ancestors, when they are not already being sponsored. It is my way of honoring those who came before us and made us what we are today. Regards, Linne

|D Wilkes||RE: Diana Lee Donaldson|
As a descendant of the Butt(s) line, I came across something in regards to Diana and would like to pose a question. Could the "Lee" be her maiden name? When her husband Thomas P Butt married Sally Shaddin in 1823, the opposite page shows a Diana Lee marrying an Alfred M Donaldson the previous month. It seems that no one has any specific info on her parents or siblings. There also is a Thomas Lee marrying a Marriette Donaldson listed below Diana's. Could it be that two siblings of opposite families marry the other siblings? Curious as to your thoughts.

I saw you posted that he is your ancestor... he is my 4th great grandfather!
|Dan Davidson||RE: Davidson|
You are most welcome! Sponsoring relatives, ancestors, and friends Find A Grave memorials is my way of honoring them as well as supporting Find A Grave.
I am a very distantly related to Gen. William Lee Davidson as I am his 1st Cousin 7x removed according to my genealogical research.
I became interested to know if I was possibly related to him because I happen live in TN and Davidson Co, TN. was named in honor of him.
Gen. Wm. Lee Davidson's first cousin, Colonel William Davidson is my 5th GGF - Find A Grave Memorial # 26573046, NOTE: Col Wm. Davidson birthplace is inscribed incorrectly on his marker as North Scotland and based on historical and genealogical research it is believed he was actually born in Tinkling Springs, Virginia.
Here are couple of web links that are most helpful in Davidson genealogical research should you be interested.

I accidentally came across the will of your William Coughran/Cochran of York Co., PA among the wills of the Maryland Prerogative Court. It's dated 20 Sept 1771, probated 15 Jan 1772. If you haven't seen it I can send you what I transcribed. Or you can view the original (PDF) at the Maryland State Archives website:
Bk WD 3, p. 619
(Link to index: http://guide.mdsa.net/pages/series.aspx?ID=S538)
The will lists his wife Sarah and children Andrew, James, William, John, Margaret, Sarah.
|Barbara Arceneaux||RE: Kerner Memorial|
Sounds great to me!
|Beth ||Helms Cemetery|
Are there any graves in this cemetery that have readable markers? I have been looking for a Helms, my gg grandfather that died in 1890 and have had no luck so leaving no stone unturned.

|Judith Johnson||David Rankin Grave|
Wow!!! Thank you so much! I'm sure I am just one person of so many who will appreciate this. :)
|David Coleman||RE: Bobby Rivers|
I had the opportunity to visit the Bobby Rivers cemetery again over Thanksgiving. I went specifically to see if I had missed this grave stone on my initial visit. This headstone doesn't exist at the site. The only other possible location would be at the New Smyrna Methodist
Church in Hancock County GA. While there are some field stones there next to William Jackson, Philip's grandson, there are no headstone markers so I think the final resting place for Philip will have to remain a mystery for now. If you do find out any additional information, please let me know, and I'll do the same.
