When it comes to genealogy, I truly believe in the saying, "A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words". Tombstone photos can sometimes hold obscure clues to the lives of our ancestors.|
The "Edit" tab which is on the upper right of each memorial page must be used if you are requesting updates or linking to family members.
If you are requesting links, please supply the memorial #'s as well as the names and relationships.
Thank you and Happy Graving.....

Hello L Master, just a short note to say thank you for finding Robert Hampton, Sallie McCoy Hampton Maddox and James Maddox at Whitehall Cemetery and for transferring them to me. Your kindness made me very happy. The headstone photos are wonderful and I am truly grateful for the photos.
After browsing the cemetery list of interments at the cemetery; I noticed you have documented some of my other ancestors such as the Merriman family and Nicy Alverson buried at Whitehall Cemetery; which I deeply appreciate. I have been looking for them for 10 years.
Finally, and most important, thank you for your contributions as a volunteer Find A Grave contributor. You can be assured your photo headstone contributions will be appreciated by families today, many you may never hear from, and the photos will surely be appreciated by future generations.
Again thank you and have a wonderful evening.

I made a mistake and requested to link her to her her husbands parents George and Mary as if they were her parents please reject. Sorry long day time to step away from the keyboard.
|Steve Stobaugh||Photo Thanks|
Thank you, It looks like you linked my father and uncle which is great!
My grandfather George M Stobaugh is also in that cemetery unfortunately the person who took the photo is inactive for awhile, his memorial is 66591838, is there something I can do to link him & his spouse Margaret 45172902, she is in Missouri.
Any advice appreciated, Thanks,

Hi I'm requesting permission to use this photo in my family tree, Alva is my fathers brother.
You're welcome - I wouldn't remove the photo request, though, because it's possible I missed it. It is a well kept cemetery...I was impressed that where the stones were known (either now or at one time), there are aluminum memorial 'cards' placed in front of the headstone, to help with identification.

And who would think to look for a young child at the Stockton Asylum? He may be one of the youngest patients I've found so far, but there have been others. Heartbreaking really, but I suppose even a youngster who is acting out in a dangerous way has to be contained in a controlled environment. No doubt asylums were not ideal places for children (or most adults who weren't dangerous) but from many accounts Stockton was among the better ones in its earlier history anyway.
My biggest objection to the asylum is how the gravesites weren't respected in later times. Some were moved to another nearby location, others were not and who knows where any of the patients actually rest. To my knowledge, most of the early burial sites are built over, paved over, or under a fountain and water area. I'm just trying to account for the early patients.
Anyway, it's wonderful to know there are others who wish to know about their kinfolk and where they are buried.
