Bio Photo Hello everyone.

I came across this website and decided it was a nice way to honor forever those loved ones who have crossed my path of life at some time whether family, friends, co-workers or their families. I have also included quite a bit of information on my family (Rake/Raike & McCane) as it becomes available for genealogy purposes.

If by adding any of your loved ones I have overstepped my bounds or upset you that is not my intent. If you do not like what I have done please let me know and I can delete the information.

Please use the edit button for sending any requests for corrections or transfer.

If you have other loved ones you would like for me to add just send me their information and I will be happy to do so for you.

Take care....

The comment below isn't mine but I saw how true it was within a short time of being on Find A Grave. I copied this to share from another member's site:

I think it is really a shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some.

Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these are people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.

My apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them.


You may use any of my photos for your own personal use or for posting to your tree on without my expressed consent. You are not permitted to use my photos for commercial usage. If you do use my photos, I appreciate a note crediting me with the photo if you can. If not, no big deal. The whole purpose of posting photos is to breathe life back to the deceased.

Duplicate Memorial
Memorial #78178700 (Eva Morris McElfresh Beaver) was created in 2011. This is a duplicate of a memorial which was created in 2008. The 2008 memorial has her picture and is completely linked with her immediate family.

I have added the monument photo and deleted my duplicate. The inscription should read "Indiana PFC 194 Glider Infantry World War II BSM". Thank you for all your help!

RE: Charles Edward Isaacs # 58652037
Thanks for moving him Greg. I deleted my memorial and linked Charles' son Paul to your memorial. Would you add the following obit to his memorial.


BOONEVILLE, KY -- 7 September 1967 -- Charles Edward “Ed” Isaacs, 72, died at his home on Boonevile Route 2 at 9 p.m. Thursday after suffering a heart attack. He was a member of the Baptist Church, a veteran of World War I and a retired farmer and carpenter. He was a native of Lee County.

Survivors are his wife, Mrs. Sarah Isaacs; three daughters, Mrs. Martha Briscoe, Greenwood, IN; Mrs. Drucilla Price and Mrs. Fannie Bell Caudill, Booneville; two sons, Jack and Billy Isaacs, Cincinnati; four brothers, Gentry and Finley Isaacs, Vincent; Claude Isaacs, Beattyville, and 14 grandchildren.

Services will be conducted at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Vincent Baptist Church by the Rev. George Williamson. Burial will be in the Combs Cemetery. The body was taken from the Searcy and Strong Funeral Home to the residence.
