Bio Photo RECENTLY SUFFERED A STROKE, AND BROKE MY HIP, SO MIGHT BE SLOW TO ANSWER

NOTES EDITS
Requesting a transfer through the Edit feature insures that no mistakes are made. I manage too many memorials to research each one. If I find out later that an edit sent to me is not accurate, I may change it. I do not transfer to "Anonymous" nor do I do edits from them, without some explanation of the source of the information.

I love to see the memorials come alive with biographies and family history....and photos of our loved ones. I just LOVE it when I can help someone!!!
I have been researching some of my families since about 1978.


My grandmother went to cemeteries with me, and once said she would like the following to be on her stone: "WE LIVED TOGETHER, WE LOVED TOGETHER AND NOW WE REST TOGETHER". I Just fulfilled that request!!!!

PHOTOS: PLEASE GIVE CREDIT FOR MY PHOTOS THAT IS HERE ON FIND-A-GRAVE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. I TAKE PHOTOS TO SHARE----NOT TO KEEP AS MY OWN. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE THEM, PREFERABLY WITH CREDIT.

I recorded and submitted the ORIANA CEMETERY, near Peacock, Stonewall Co., Texas in about 1986, which can be found on the internet by doing a search. (It was possibly submitted to interment.net)
The Oriana Cemetery at findagrave is here.
FAVORITE SAYINGS:
"A person's life was more than the dash between years...." That dash represents your entire life and we need to live it wisely.


​Why I research and why I work with Find-A-Grave:
THEY DESERVE TO BE REMEMBERED AND RECORDED!

The names and dates on the stones represent a life lived. These people aren't just names on a stone---they once lived, laughed, loved, were happy and sad, shed real tears, endured pain.
They sometimes endured pain to the end, and they deserve to be remembered == not as names and dates on a stone, but as REAL, LIVE, LOVED people who had a story to tell! Some of them raised children, and some didn't. Some died way too young or as children. There is a story between those dates that you see on the stones. That is why I will research them and record it as best as I can, and SHARE IT HERE ONLINE WHEN I CAN.

​Every time you feel the warm air on your skin, know that I am kissing you gently and whispering that I love you.

Wallace Newman (Pisgah Baptitst)
Hi Nancy. I hope you are in good health now. I wanted to bring your attention to the entry for
Wallace Newman in the Pisgah Baptist Cemetery in Cloverport. The name there should be "Bernard" "Infant son of Wallace and Alma Newman". Wallace and Alma were my parents. Bernard was their first born and I'm the last born. The dates on the stone say April 12, 1931 and April 12, 1931 but it should be April 12, 1930 and April 12, 1930. I imagine the stone was probably put there at a much later date and it's incredible to believe that they didn't get the dates right or that my parents didn't either notice it or didn't get it corrected at that time.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.

Good Morning,
Hope you have a normal recovery related to your health issues.
My name is Mark Suby, I live in Mason City, Iowa. My 2nd Great Grandmother Mary Ellen Wilkie Shobe is buried in the White Oak Cemetery near Lineville, Iowa, also buried in that same cemetery is Unity Wilkie wife of Thomas. I have been trying to find Mary's family history, but can not connect her with a mother, father or siblings. Because she is buried in this cemetery with Unity, I am wondering if you know of any connection with Mary Ellen and Unity's husband Thomas. Mary was born in Indiana 1847-1897.

Thanks for your time....Hope you heal fast.
Mark

Nancy,

You and I have collaborated before on the Mountain View Cemetery in Lordsburg. I had originally added several memorials and subsequently you added several photos and sent me bio details, links, etc.

I wanted you to know one result of our effort. I got a findagrave message today as shown below. I wanted to pass this along to you as you deserve much of the hidden credit here.

It make my heart warm to know that your and my efforts are helping to heal families and mend fences. I feel that is the way the good Lord would want it to be. I can't help but believe her relatives are smiling on the other side.

Thank you for all the good work you have done with this cemetery in findagrave.

Jay

P.S. I did some research and added parent links after receiving her message

Dear Sir
Thank you , for making my Great Aunt's memorial . And what a surprise , knowing that I was born on her birthday , too . Also , due to your memorial , I'll be able to use it as a reference in locating my relatives . Furthermore , her brother Paul is my grandfather . In August of 1968 , when I was three years old , my parents separated and then divorced . All of that , caused a demise for me by never having any more contact with the Giles family . Nor did they try for visitation rights . So , now you know , how helpful your memorial is to me . Once again , Thank you and God Bless You .

Luther Myers Bilberry 53671251
Hi Nancy,

I just noticed that the date of birth for Luther Myers Bilberry (53671251) is shown as 1866, rather than 1856. I submitted an edit through the memorial, just thought I would "explain."

He is in the 1860 census in Pulaski as being 4 years old. The picture of his headstone is a little hard to read but definitely says 1856. Also, born in 1866 would have made him only 14 years old when he married.

I am a Bilberry, gr grandson of Esau, and I do appreciate all the effort and time you have put in on these memorials. I like going to the cemeteries and finding ancestors as well. Some of them are evading me and it gets a little frustrating at times.

Thanks!

Ted Bilberry Jr.
