PLEASE use the edit tabs for corrections, I have deleted my e-mail.|
I enjoy helping others out. As well as working on my family history. If I can help in my area let me know. I will try to help get your photo and or obituary, if possible.
However, after going out of my way to get pictures and the such, I would appreciate it if Marcia would stop trolling the findagrave site and nit picking at my and "other" contributors work, effort and help. We are all adults, or so should be.
I am human and do make mistakes, just like the rest of us. (Whether some want to admit it or not is still out for debate. LOL)
If you find a problem, please be kind when asking for corrections to be made. Don't ASSUME that all the information on the memorial was made by me. You know the saying "DON'T ASSUME-it'll make an ass out of you!" LOL Most would agree that a polite contact is the best kind of contact.
In the event you find memorials that need to be linked. Please provide proof that it is husband and wife buried together. I've gotten wrong information. What a headache that was. So please provide proof. Thanks!!
Currently I am inputting information from cemetery books. I am not trying to have a bunch of memorials under my number WHO CARES???
What I care for is to list the forgotten, that didn't have a headstone or the headstone is missing for whatever reason. For those that are searching for loved ones. Not knowing where in the "county" they are resting. Since inputting the cemetery book info. I have had several people contact me because I had solved mysteries where their relatives are buried at. That has been rewarding. It trumps the "negative" ones.
So fellow findagravers, the cemetery entries are a great source for information, if you can't get out to cemeteries, entering from the cemetery books would be greatly appreciated.
This helpful info. below came from Eva Pippin Flowers (#47244686)
When requesting how to be able to click on name and then taken to their site:
< a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=FAG#">NAME< /a>
Please copy and paste the above statement and then delete the space between the first < and "a" and then after the last name< and /.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY LEAF
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.
God Bless America!!!

Hi, I noticed that you declined my corrections for the above memorials because there was a "conflict with your data."
Here is the source for my data:
"John Mitchell, one of the early pioneers of Washington Township was born in the North of Ireland about the years 1760 and removed from thence to the state of North Carolina in his youth, where he married, and removed from there to East Tennessee about the year 1790. In the year 1793, he removed to Fayette County, Kentucky. From thence he again removed to Middle Tennessee, settling in the then small village of Franklin, where he opened a shop, he being a wheelwright. In the year 1807, the spirit of emigration again seized him, and he removed, with at that time a large family, to within the present limits of Washington Township, settling in Captain Blackwell's Survey No 1, 457, just south of Cuba. His family consisted of five useful citizens. James removed to the West at an early day. The daughters all married, lived and died in Clinton County, where they left many descendants, honored and respected."
Source: History of Clinton County, Ohio, pp.798-9, published 1882
What is the source of yours?
I'm trying to locate the grave sites of some of my Humphreys relatives. They lived and died in the LaHarpe and Fountain Green Twp. area around the years of 1850-1890. Could you possibly give me some assistance in locating them? I have exhausted my internet resources and am in hope of finding a local to give me some help.
Thanks Don Bedwell

Thanks so much for your entries! It has made it possible to locate a few of my kinfolk and I cannot get to Ohio very often. People without monuments are still people I want to find! I just read your profile stating that you require proof before linking spouses, and I just sent link edit request for this Mary. Not sure what to send. Marriage record to Isaiah M. Roberts 21 May 1868, Clinton County. They are in 1870 census in Washington, Clinton, OH with their baby and then Isaiah died. She is next found in 1880 Liberty, Highland, Ohio with parents, then marriage record to Samuel H. Mitchel 15 Jul 1885, Highland County, both widowed. Holmes is my lineage so I especially work to document them. Thanks again.

Your consideration of this request is appreciated.

Regarding John Carnahan #70290474 and Nancy Black Carnahan's photo, is there an original that could now be scanned with better resolution? Also, what was the source for this photo? I'd like to add that to the photo. Thanks!
