Bio and Links
Bio Photo ***Please leave flowers for Charlie H. Hill (183836976), a Korean War soldier who was MIA/lost near the Chosin Reservoir in 1950, and whose remains were just recently identified and interred at Fort Custer National Cemetery***

This site serves as a database so that present and future generations can find those they seek. It is used by professional genealogists, as well as amateurs, and is owned by If you've used Ancestry and found a link to Find A Grave, it is because of the work of many volunteers who pursue this endeavor with an earnest regard to preserve history for future generations. I was able to trace our family back 13 generations in America (arriving in 1633) with the aid of Ancestry and those who contribute to this site, and it is my desire to "pay it forward" by doing the same for others.

Please keep in mind that this pursuit is completely done by VOLUNTEERS who spend countless hours in this dedicated effort to honor those that have passed before us. However, I understand that some folks do not want their relatives memorials posted on this site. I will honor all requests from IMMEDIATE family members to remove their relatives if they wish. Please state your relationship when contacting me. Remember that your relative's memorial was posted to honor them, so please take that into consideration when contacting me.

Please feel free to ask for a transfer if you find one of your relatives posted here by me (or any other contributor). Most folks will gladly transfer relatives to family members. Please state your relationship to the person in the listing and use the edit tab on the memorial to request the transfer. If you don't wish to manage the memorial, I will gladly add any biographical information you would like.

My primary focus at present lies in documenting the final resting places of veterans. I once found a poem written on a memorial for a young soldier and it stays with me. I believe it was originally from a speech at the conclusion of the Civil War. In part: "Nor shall your glory be forgot while Fame her record keeps; for Honor marks the hallowed spot where Valor proudly sleeps". I am privileged to preserve these markers for future generations. After all, their valor is our heritage.

History is made every day...ALWAYS REMEMBER!

RE: Sadie Priestly edit
Thank you. I was a bit confused. I knew Sadie Priestley personally. She was my grandfather's (Leon Abbott Brown) niece. Anna Bozarth was his sister. Even though Sadie was much closer to his age. He was the youngest of 13 children. Anna was the eldest.

Thanks again,

Lynn Frederico

Duplicate grave
To: "Shirley" and "13th Generation Fairbanks in America":
8454285 and 139329282 are duplicates. I leave it to you two owners to resolve the problem. One has a photo; the other has better information.

Thank you.
When the software or server sticks, it doesn't tell me when the memorial goes through.

RE: John E Miller in BG Doyle
Sounds good, thanks. His brothers are sons of his step/adoptive dad, sister is a full sibling. Bio/birth father was William J Rose. Found his parents in the NYC marriage index (1 Aug 1936) and John, his mom, and his sister are found living in NJ with maternal grandparents in 1940 census all 3 with the last name Rose.
