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

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.

"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!"

George W.Beach
No complaints here. I am impressed that you added so much census information on his page. I just wanted to add that his father was William 'Harrison' Beach born 1827. Harrison probably died in the Civil War, 5th Virginia Regiment; I have not been able to find more. His son, George W. probably never met his father. Catherine Arrington was his second wife.

My great-great-great grandmother was his first wife, Diana Sutherland. See Ancestry.

Thanks for your great efforts.

William Rolla Sharp, Memorial # 42077467
Dear Sir,

On January 9, 2017, I sent you a message to see if you would consider releasing the memorial to me as my friend is the Niece of PFC Sharp. We both have visited his grave site several times, most recently on 28 December 2016.

Feel free to reply to my email at I am also Find A Grave contributor,#47673320.

I know my friend would enjoy this.

Margaret W Moore Trueblood Burial
In reference to the memorial for Margaret W Moore Trueblood who you have listed as buried in Cox's Cemetery Athol, Maryland. Her Obituary states Graveside services are 2 p.m. CST Saturday in Cox Cemetery in Annapolis, which is referring to Annapoliss, Ill. I looked up the obituary to verify, that is how I found out that she was buried in the above mentioned cemetery.

RE: Rachel Tippetts
I did look into her lines a little bit more and she has a separate father than the father that is listed. So the first name that we had for her was correct she is a Tibbetts.

I do not always have all the information on all these individuals I just patch them together they're so others can help enjoy the family lines and also so others can contribute to any of these individuals who do get lost. I do not know where they are buried at but if you do find I would be very interested to know.

I do not personally you ever get offended by this.
