I have previously requested Find a Grave to designate this memorial as a cenotaph, but have not heard back from them. If you look closely at the stone it is ancestry list for the person at the bottom. Check his memorial and you will see the same stone with the memorial created by the same person. I have not bothered to check the intervening names. All of these ancestors have not been moved there. Here are the rules from Find A Grave on a cenotaph:

"A cenotaph is a marker within a cemetery placed in honor of a person whose remains are buried elsewhere. It may also be the original marker for someone who has since been reinterred elsewhere. To add a cenotaph, create a memorial. Then email with a link to the memorial and request to have the memorial designated a cenotaph. Please only add relationship links to the actual burial memorial when both a cenotaph and actual burial exist."

Payne Surname
Ailleen I wanted to Thank You for solving my mystery. My gr grandfather James M. Payne death was unknown for many years to me. We all know the date but how he died and where he is buried is still a mystery. Cemetery known but place not known. Would imagine near his brother P.E. Payne. Thanks again. David A. Payne

Can You Add One Child of Jacob Fickling
I believe there might be a name missing from the 10 children of Jacob Fickling--that would be Lucy Jane Fickling Elliott Miller, dob June 03, 1856, and died Jan. 02, 1950. She is buried in Galva Cemetery.
This would have been my great-grandmother; she had four children George, Charles Harlan Elliott, Glenn Elliott and Susan Elliott.
I do have some additional information I could provide to you on her. Please contact me at
Thank you,
Catherine Elliott-Dunne

Thank You!

Thank you for the wonderful photo of my cousin's gravestone. William Nicholas Reynolds was my 3rd Cousin 2 Times Removed. I have spend years researching my family history. You have added a piece of the puzzle.

Thank you for all of the good work you do!

RE: Thank You!
You were on vacation?! What an angel you are for taking the time to get this photo! I really don't know anything about the Norton's. I don't even know her 2nd husband's name (other than his last name was Norton). I was hoping she'd be with Joseph Beavin. He died about 10 years after they were married.

Thanks again!

Thank You!
Thank you so much for the Headstone photo for Susan I. (Stewart) Beavin Norton! I was hoping maybe she would be next to her 1st husband there, but it's nice to at least see she is with family! I love the photo you posted with all the people to the right of her (with the headstones marked!), and I'm guessing there was no one related to the left.

Thank you again! What a great ending to my day!
