Bio and Links
Bio Photo Since 1990, I have been working on the genealogy of my husband's family. In 1997 a computer was foisted on me and the real fun started! I began researching my own family in 2000 as a 70th b-day present for my brother. In sleuthing for family gravesites in the Northeast, we have physically unearthed family headstones. During the process of gathering family data, we have had a refresher course in US History as well as some post-grad work. The threads of our country's fabric have been spun from the family histories in our cemeteries.

In 2003-04,I had the pleasure of working with Michael Robert Patterson to identify family genealogy in many burials he had listed on his superb Arlington National Cemetery website. Michael linked the families on the website and supplied copious biographical information. The "family" continually amazed us both.

At the time, I neglected to enter names in findagrave's Arlington list and have tried to catch up, but alas too late to add many of our family ,as others gleaned the information from the above website and added it to findagrave.

I will not link entries created as "burial unknown" to our family memorials, for that is not the mission of this website as stated below.

"Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information . . ..
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition.
"Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days."

All of my entries in Find a Grave have been family members,until recently when I put in a few names from some obscure places that may be your family.

I believe you have a typo on Lieut. Joseph Stanton's page. You state that he married May 1, 1712 (his birth date). I believe it should be married 6 Nov 1735.
Hope you don't mind my suggesting a correction.

RE: Rebecca Melvina Price
I did see all the attachments to her. But if you find she is not in this cemetery I guess you could contact the other memorial person and ask her to copy over all the info before it is deleted, if it needs be.
Thanks for your assistance in this.

There are two memorials for her in two different cemeteries. The one you created here and one created in White Church Cem. Byron, Osage Co.,Mo. The one in White has a picture of their headstone. The memorial no. for it is 19620205. I do not know which is the correct cemetery. Maybe you can find out. I found this when doing family research. thank you

See FAG #: 112925930
I have added some of his children, all are buried in the same lot or Vault, plus a couple of others. Let me know if these are your relatives.

Also, there are some good photographers in that cemetery. I suggest we ask for some tombstone pictures.
