"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP."
~Leonard Nimoy (last tweet)

Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.

"History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon."
-Napoleon Bonaparte

“To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child. For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history.” —Cicero

Chief Petty Officer, US Navy, retired.

Enjoying the fruits of my labors - children and grand children - to the best of my abilities.

Traveling around North America in my RV with my dogs!

Currently, my favorite bumper sticker is "My grandchildren are cuter than yours"

If you have a problem with something I posted, please email me or click on suggest a correction instead of posting it on my contributor page. I will address the issue as quick as I possibly can.

If you would like a transfer, I do not follow FAG transfer guidelines, so feel free to ask. But if they are a relative of mine, let me know how you are related and we will figure it out from there!

The purpose in life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

One can tell the morals of a culture by the way they treat their dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin

To Err Is Human, To Correct Divine. If you come across any errors or have additions to the memorials I maintain, please let me know. I strive to provide accurate information and will be happy to make any changes necessary, or transfer them over to your care.


The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. ~ Herbert Spencer

Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories. ~ Unknown

Remeber and learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

"There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." ~ Author Unknown

"Lest they be forgotten."

"May they live forever."

"When an old person dies, a library burns..." African proverb



Life is not a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely, in a well-preserved body. Rather to slide in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming.."WOW, that was a Great Ride!"

Sean Divver
John Divver (1850-1893)
My name is Sean Divver and I'm the 3 times great grandson to John Divver, father of Harry E. Divver Sr. (1869-1922). My 3 times great grandfather John Divver was born 1822 and died at the age of 72 on September 26, 1894, as stated on his death certificate. The information that you have posted for John Divver on his profile for find a grave is inaccurate. I have an account on find a grave, so feel free to contact me.

Incorrect Birth Place
Hello, I'm a daughter of Alice Matilda Ulven Burrill, Find A Grave Memorial# 152699167

Both the birth place and death place are not correct.

The correct birth place is Dale, Clay County, MN

The correct death place is Olympia, Thurston County, WA

She lived in Poulsbo, WA but was not at home when she died.

Thank you,
Barbara Burrill

RE: Ferdinand Hayn
Hi Debbie. I'm sorry it's taken over 3 years for me to see this message. Did you find the answer to your question about Ferdinand Hahn's grave? If not, let me know. I believe that he is buried alongside my grandmother Emma.

I found a marker, Baby Fairchild, no dates or other information at Knob Prairie Cemetery at Waltonville, IL. Could this be your Johnnie Fairchild?
