|Bio and Links|
Let me begin by saying that cemetery research and genealogy are much more than simply a hobby for me, they are my passion. I desire to capture the history of every day people, to make sure their lives are remembered.|
In all my hunting, one of the stories that I've uncovered and touched my heart isn't a relation to me. In fact, she has no descendents of her own. Hers is the the story of a young girl known as Minnie Adams, "The Wild Girl of Brush Valley Township." If you get the chance, stop over at her memorial, read her story, and remember her.
Little Angels and Angel Mothers Project
A personal project of mine is to create virtual cemeteries for Pennsylvania infants and children and for mothers who died in childbirth. Please feel free to contact me with additions to these virtual cemeteries.
Updates and Corrections
I am more than happy to work with others to make additions and corrections to the memorials I manage. That said, I very much appreciate when updates provide the source (that's not just a family tree someone found online). Unfortunately, I have been given incorrect information in the past and wish to avoid that.
When Memorials Don't "Look" Like You Prefer
Also know that for memorials of those who died 100+ years ago, the "traffic" is high as those individuals may have a 1000 or more descendants. Please understand that everyone has their preferences of what to post on a memorial and how it should look. The memorial may not appear exactly the way you want it (ex: the photo of the stone isn't at the top, there is death or marriage certificate included ), but there may be someone else out there who likes it that way. In my view, I may "manage" a memorial, but it isn't "mine." This is a public site, and the memorials are here for everyone. As long as what is posted on the memorial is respectful and relative to the person, I leave the memorial for the living to honor the dead.
When Resources Conflict
Always be aware that sometimes obits, death certs, and even carved headstones can have errors. In those instances of conflicting sources, I will make the best judgement I can and will note it in the bio.
Be Kind... Always
I do take pride in the memorials I manage, and I do my very best to promptly make updates that are sent my way. I take that responsibility seriously and always appreciate it when others manage their memorials with the same diligence and respect. One thing I've noticed across the board here at Find-A-Grave, kindness when making requests most often is rewarded.
I also would eagerly transfer management of a memorial page of a person whom I am not related (primarily anyone buried in New England are non-relations) to a descendant as well as Greenwood Cemetery. I do expect that if a transfer is requested that you are an active Find-a-Grave member and will continue to maintain the memorial and graciously network with other descendants to ensure accuracy.
However, please respect that I retain management of the memorials of my ancestors. If we are both descendants, I certainly respect the Find-A-Grave policy on transfers. If you are looking for a way to "gather" your family and loved ones together, please check out the "Virtual Cemeteries" feature on your profile. This is an excellent tool for you to connect your family together.
SENDING EDITS AND UPDATES
PLEASE send corrections/requests by clicking the "EDIT" tab at the top right corner of the memorial page. Then click "suggest a correction or provide additional information". For transfers, state your relationship and include your member number. I sometimes miss messages posted below, so you'll have much better luck emailing me through the "edit" function.

|Stan Arnold||Thank you!|
Thanks very much for the transfers of Joseph and Mary Bachellor, and for all your work in Find-a-grave. Warmest regards... Stan
|PBW||Melanie LaDawn Barnett...|
Hi Jennifer!! I came across your name when I was just looking around and saw you had links for babies without any links to their families. Melanie LaDawn Barnett caught my eye so I did a Google search and found her mother. Here is a link to her obituary. Have a nice day. Andrea
The person I found that had your name on it was Marie Meehan & her son just passed away recently a couple of towns away and the obituary mentioned her. Here is a link to that.
Here is the link to Paul Meehan's mother's grave.

Thank you for the photo and the suggestions. I have made the corrections and requested that the other photo get pulled from the memorial page.
|Christine Miniman||Deeds Family|
I see you have recently created an entry for my second great grandfather, Charles F. Deeds, and my second great grandmother, Catherine M. Dunovan (Donovan) Deeds. They had four children: Mary Elizabeth, who married John Henry Dodd; Teresa Ann Deeds, who married Charles Farnum White and died in Brooklyn; Andrew F. Deeds; and John Francis Deeds, who married Anna Maria Annesson. Mary Elizabeth and John Francis both died in Holliston and may be buried in St. Mary's Cemetery. I can provide you with their vital information if you find their graves. Andrew may also have died there, but I have not been able to find much information about him after the 1880 U.S. Census. Additionally, my third great grandmother, Catherine M. Dunovan or Donovan, died in Holliston sometime after the 1880 U.S. Census and may be buried in St. Mary's Cemetery. Please contact me if you need this information.

Thank you so very much for providing this service. It helped me answer some questions.
|FrancisMattesonLine||RE: Lake Grove Updates|
Thanks Jennifer! I still have not proven I'm a cousin because my Mystery Mary Smith who married Adam Comstock is the link, but I am unable to prove she is the one I suspect she is.
I will ask T Mowry who is on the BVHS RI Cemeteries Recovery Research team of he wants them. I'm not sure if he has an account here, but he is a documented relative.
|Jacki, Weymouth Massachusetts||The pictures|
You can hang any picture you want. The clearer the better. I had people helping me with the smaller cemeteries, one person from the historical society was helping with the soldiers, the other people were researchers and photographers. I didn't dare ask for the bigger cemetery. Thanks for your help, Jacki

|stendec||Re: Paul Keough|
