Bio and Links
Bio Photo I think this "Find-a-Grave" website is wonderful, and I hope more people will add data to it. Hopefully my input will help someone out there.

I so enjoy finding & visiting the old pioneer cemeteries, where the dates go back to the 1700-1800's.

I'll be more than happy to make corrections and/or add data, make relationship links, etc, but I am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to a growing misunderstanding of what Find-a-grave is all about.

Please DO NOT not leave me a message of "any kind" without leaving a way for me to get back to you. It makes no sense to do so - it is useless and it will be ignored.

Your "e-mail" must be present in your messages to me.

DO NOT ask for transfers without return contact information either.

I only transfer memorials according to Find-a-grave guidelines so check first before asking please.

TRANSFERS: Per Findagrave regulations:

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. This DOES NOT include aunts, uncles and cousins.

Please do NOT add personal data in the "Leave Flowers & Note" section -- that is NOT what it is for...... send the data to me & I will be happy to add it in the "Bio Section" where it belongs. Thanks!

Another contributor has ask my help in managing some of the memorials he created, therefore if I can be of any help to you with of the memorials he has transferred me let me know. I will be glad to make updates/corrections or links to them.

God Bless!

Check out my memorial below for my beloved kitty "Punky" that crossed over the "Rainbow Bridge" on July 20, 2014. It was such a heartbreak..... I miss her so much.

2nd wife of George I. Harder, married 25 Jun 1831 at Christ's Luth. Ch., Ghent, Columbia Co., NY

Lieut Zachariah Goodell
Thank you for creating these memorials for the Goodell family. I really appreciate it.

This Zachariah Goodell (46854745) is my 5th Great grandfather. He was born July 30, 1737 and thus was "in his 62nd yr" at his death (according to Pomfret Vital Records 1705-1850). Please be kind enough to correct his age from "24". I have submitted his birth date and connections to his parents to Find A Grave. Thank you so much.

RE: John Pickens #158029065
You are very welcome. I'm surprised I was able to find it. It was stacked against other markers that have fallen over and or broke.

You are welcome, Ruth. To have a heart filled by a cat is to live life to its fullest.
