I saw a story on my local news about a tombstone that had been found, stolen and dumped. The stone was for a 3 year old child named Maggie A Lloyd. As a genealogist, I know how valuable tombstones can be and it made me sick that someone had stolen this one. So I decided to try to find where it belonged. Turns out, Find a Grave had a record of the Paradise Lake Cemetery where Maggie is buried. A number of other local Find a Grave contributors also contact the Sheriff's department with this information and the stone was returned to its proper place.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who was inspired by this story, as 5 other 'bouquets' were left on her page today. I'm glad to know I'm in such good company!
