Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've found that Find A Grave is a great tool to locate family members! All of the volunteers who have taken the time to register graves and place photographs are truly appreciated!

I've added some memorials for some whose headstones caught my eye while I was looking for relatives' graves or fulfilling photo requests. I would be happy to transfer any of these to family members even if outside guidelines.

***** Photos I have posted may be copied but please include attribution to the Find A Grave memorial.

Most family portrait photos I have posted on FAG are also posted to Ancestry.com. In that case, please use the 'Add to my tree' command to re-post them to your tree.

**Bowling Family: I have organized the memorials in Virtual Cemeteries. ABowling are the children of Ambrose Green Bowling and their descendants. I have further separated the descedants of his son Samuel Bowling (ABowlingS) by his wives Margaret and Lydia. Lydia's descendants by her first husband Joseph Mahaffey are under Mahaffey. Again, I have separated the descendants of Samuel and Lydia's son Clark into 'ABowlingSL - Clark & Carrie' (Herman and Fawn Bowling Holt descendants are placed in both the Clark & Carrie and Holt virtual cemeteries.) I have, in many cases, included spouses for the Clark and Carrie children's and grandchildren's generations. For Carrie's family see the Morley - Hibbard virtual cemetery.
There are also separate virtual cemeteries for Ambrose's known siblings Jeremiah and Margaret.
This is a work in progress!!

Durham Baptist Cemetery Photos - sorry for the photos with odd 'shadows'! A rain shower popped up while I was driving to this site .and the stones were unevenly wet when I took the photos. I figure a poor photo is better than none...

I found the husband, Wm. H. His last name is spelled Wade, but all of his children have Waid as their spelling. Thanks for the heads up, that it is not Ward.

RE: Kane photo
Hi
Rosemond has some serious "hiding in plain site" skills. I have just finished photographing the entire cemetery today, and drove past a new grave and stop to investigate. There in an area I went through in March was this beautiful, big headstone. "Rosemond!" "I have been looking for you and had given up.I found your mother, father, grandfather and sibling but somehow I missed you"
Anyway I am glad that she was finally found and you are most welcome.

RE: Marion Cemetery
At this point I am just concentrating on photographing the ones already on the site. There are still plenty of those. 😁 I will continue getting the ones that are identified as being in a specific section until they are all gone. i don't really want to sponsor pages so I don't normally add names but do it on occasion. I don't want to do research either; just take pictures. When I have finished, I'll go back for the others that are left. So whatever you get, I'll remove from my lists before i go back out. You are being more thorough, trying to get everyone buried there on the site. I usually get out on Tuesday or Friday depending on the weather. It may be a couple of weeks before the next trip as I have a trip planned.

RE: Marion Cemetery
I have a list of all the findagrave memorials with no picture. i was going through the cemetery section by section and taking pictures of the ones that had updated plot locations. After that i will go back through the cemetery and get as many as possible on the list that don't have updated plot locations. How were you deciding which pictures to take? Wee you working on the requests? I can split up the pictures however you like. The ones that are listed by section are easier and i can send you my lists. I have been through sections 1-17. I only get out there about once a week because i drive from Wichita.
When I started this project the cemetery was only about 50% photographed. It's now about 75%. 😊
