Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history and cemeteries have been a fascination of mine many years. There was a small cemetery across the road from land my grandfather homesteaded in Kansas with graves with our family name. 'Dad, who are those people?,' was an early question of mine.

Then, each Memorial Day, I stayed with my favorite aunt in a nearby town; it had the cemetery of our extended family. We would gather blooms all round her small town as neighbors shared flowers to decorate those graves. I learned about our family and hers as we placed our bouquets at grave sites. Now, many years later there are many more cemeteries where I feel this personal connection.

If you find errors or can add to any memorial I've created or manage, please let me know. Just use the EDIT tab and send your information. If you would like a memorial transferred to you, using F.A.G. guidelines, please use the EDIT tab on the specific memorial and let me know your relationship. I'll have your note AND a link to the memorial you would like to manage. Remember to include your member number.

RE: Billings
You are welcome, it is very disturbing to see some of these headstones. If you do get it cleaned, drop me a line and I will go take another picture without a request.

RE: Media Mix-up
You're welcome, Emily. I frequently add death certificates. Here is what Find A Grave says about them in their FAQs page:
May I add a death certificate to a person's memorial page?
Death certificates may be added via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. Please select the option for "Other" in the "Type of photo:" to be added, as it is not a Grave, Person or Family photograph.
I put obituaries as text in the BIO field, but will post images of obituaries that are from 1924 or earlier, as all copyrights have expired.
Take good care.

You're very welcome. I'll gladly comply - - air fare and expenses. No - - it's just a matter of pride and tricks with the camera, etc. I enjoy the nutty hobby. Regards - - -

John Painter/Hannah Braddock
Thank you for the note re: John & Hannah. They are my 6G Grandparents through their son John.

There are now at least 3 memorials for them. The first that you mention, mine, and the third in Quaker Cemetery of Warren Co, VA.

John Painter gave land in 1758 for the Crooked Run Cemetery in Frederick Co., VA. This area is now in Warren Co, VA and is now the Nineveh Presby. Cemetery. So the Quaker Cemetery and Nineveh Cemetery are the same.

www. "CROOKED RUN Monthly Meeting was located near the village of Nineveh, now in Warren Co., Va., on the main road between Winchester and Front Royal; about 13 miles from the former and 7 from the latter place. A meeting house was built at Crooked Run prior to 1759. A monthly meeting was settled there in 1781-82. The Crooked Run Meeting was laid down in 1810--so few Friends attending. In 1812 selling the house was considered, but it was still held in 1828, though in bad condition. The site is now occupied by the Nineveh Presbyterian Church." Note the plaque photo at this Find a grave cemetery page re John Painter.

I have moved my memorial to this cemetery, and have chosen to leave it up FOR NOW because of the differences between the first memorial and mine, especially regarding the burial place and the parents of John. I will take it down if I find that I am wrong, which is ALWAYS possible.

Any insight that you have on this is welcome. If you would like any other notes I have collected on this couple, contact me by email.

Thanks again…

You have probably received the message transferring Frank Elam Trotter to you. I am part of a project in Canyon County, Idaho, taking headstone photos and posting obits for those buried in the county. It is at if you want to look further as there are other Trotters mentioned.
