The virtual cemeteries on my list that start with an asterick are one memorial in each of the international cemeteries I have worked on. I use this to easily find each cemetery.

Interesting projects I have been working on. (Newest work at top of list):

The Yangtze Incident
On April 19, 1949, British ships were caught in the Chinese Civil War between the Kuomintang (KMT) government of the Republic of China and the Communist Party of China (CPC).

The Sinking of the USS Conestoga A US Naval tugboat that disappeared from outside the San Francisco Bay in 1921, and was never heard from again. It was believed that the ship sank 2,000 miles away from where it was discovered in the Greater Farallones Islands in Oct. 2015.

Murulla Railway Disaster A midnight train collision in the Upper Hunter Valley on Sept. 13, 1926 near Murrurundi, New South Wales. The different cemeteries are interlinked.

Victims of the Sunshine Station Railway Disaster Forty-four people died when one train ran into another in a crowded train station in suburban Melbourne in 1908. Newspaper articles and photos of those killed. Hyperlinks at the bottom of each page will carry you to the different cemeteries involved.

Coranderrk Aboriginal Cemetery, Healesville, Victoria, Australia. Amazing 150 year old photos of the residents of this Aboriginal Station, who believed that Queen Victoria had given the reserve to them in perpetuity.

Dom St. Petri, Bremen, Germany with photos from Sept. 2014.

Goodwood Motor Circuit Cemetery, Chichester, England with photos.

Chichester Cathedral, West Sussex, England with photos.

National Cathedral of Denmark, Copenhagen. With translations.

Sankt Petri Kirke, Copenhagen.

Oude Kerk, Amsterdam is a 14th century church that became an indoor cemetery. Each stone in the floor covers between 2 and 7 graves. I have found a lot of genealogical information and I have photographed both the stone and the area of the church the stone is in; you get a sense of the size of this place. BACK OFF, girls! The silver fox in a number of the pictures is MINE!

China Ashes is my list of people who died in China and the disposition of their ashes was lost. It is especially interesting considering how many of these individuals I could find photos for.

Royal Naval Cemetery - Liu-kung-tao

Holy Trinity Cathedral and the story of the ashes there (or are they?)

Taiyuan Massacre Graves

The Rebellion Cemetery of 1900

Yangpu Public Park

Heping Park

Weihsien Civilian Assembly Center

-Recently I have been including a list of my sources to be placed under the ADD NOTE tab. PLEASE do not post my name and number; my ego just doesn't need that and your bio will just look sloppy. My greatest reward is a beautifully formatted memorial. THANKS, YALL!

Rose Mary Erdman Foulke Memorial #120199133
Rebecca, I was elated when I found the memorial for Rose Mary.

Thanks for your time and research on the memorial.

Your projects look so interesting.

You are showing Mother of Harry M. Foulke, Rosemary M. Foulke, Verna (Foulke) DeKalb and Jeanette (Foulke) Spurrier.

Harry M. Foulke was not a son of Rose Mary. His mother was Avaline Wyckoff. He was born 21 Jan 1880 in CO; died 6 Sep 1923 Brooklyn, Kings, New York; Find A Grave memorial #184201221. I was much surprised to find his death record showing his mother as Avaline Wyckoff.

The other girls listed are her children. I wonder where you obtained Verna (Foulke) DeKalb, last name. I can't find her after she left for China. I have researched Verna Foulke DeKalb and can't find her any where with the DeKalb name.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for your love of families you have added to Find A Grave. Needless to say I was so happy when I found her. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Here below a descendant tree of this family Lington, well a part of it:

His father was: Cornelis Johannes Lington was born on Friday 18 May 1866 in Utrecht.
Cornelis died on Tuesday 30 October 1917 in Utrecht, aged 51.
His mother;
Geertruida Margrieta van den Dorpe Geertruida was born on Thursday 9 December 1869 in Utrecht.
Geertruida died on Saturday 18 June 1927 in Utrecht, aged 57.

Thomas Mattheus Lington returned once to the Netherlands and that was in August 1953 together with his wife, they return to the States on August, 20 1953, source Ellis Island.

Later I have perhaps more but I let you know, if you like of course.

Frank Barrows Markle
Hey Rebecca, I have been doing some extensive research on Frank Markle and his wife, Carrie (McDonald) Markle. I have just sent you some more edits. Are you related? Do you have any (?s). Just let me know. I couldn't find Samuel McCullough Markle (Frank's father) but did find his mother Lucy Brown (Gere) Markle. She was Samuel's second wife. He was first married to her older sister Mary Russell Gere, also found her. Also found Willard Gere Markle, Frank's son. Would love to hear from you--thanks for all you're doing. Lily

I thank you for your inclusion of this individual she was my cousin and I had no information concerning her burial and limited knowledge of her passing. You have given me some new insight in part of my family that had drifted apart.

Paul Gerhardt Benson
Hi Rebecca,

I'm a direct descendant of baby Paul Gerhardt Benson's brother, W. Burdette, and I was just wondering where you got the brief (but intriguing) information you posted in Paul's memorial (#119216892). I'm trying to learn more about him, and about what became of that cemetery and wondered if you might be able to point me in the direction of some good resources.

(I'm seeing the note currently at the top of your bio, too, and am floored. Respond when you can, but I will not be expecting anything soon--there are definitely more pressing matters at hand.)

Best wishes and kind regards,
