LAST, BUT CERTAINLY, NOT LEAST:
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!"

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.
So sorry Ellis has no headstone, but I have posted a photo of his final resting place. Chris

I have been wondering the same thing. Miss seeing her postings! Wish I could help, but I have no information either. I hope she's all right and will be back soon.

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 email@example.com. I am also Find A Grave contributor,#47673320.
I know my friend would enjoy this.
|John W Littleton III||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.
|Mrs. Bee||Gertrude and Victoria Hooff|
Thank you for filling out the parental information. I always appreciate your work!

You are very welcome.
|John Webber||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.
