My great, great grandfather inspired my interest in genealogy with all the information he passed down through the family. How I wish I could have met him. He was a very sentimental fellow, recording many family events, happy and sad. To have lost 5 of his 10 children before they reached the age of 23 must have had a significant impact in his life. He wrote poems about his children and a tribute to his wife after she died.
I have always liked visiting cemeteries and have been to many coast to coast but didn't take pictures until I discovered FAG. What a wonderful place to make a memorial for our loved ones and also help others find their ancestors burial places!
