I would like to take time and thank members of the LDS Church from Grafton, Lorain Co., OH who have generously taken all the photos I have posted with their permission at Ridgelawn Cemetery in Elyria.

Jackie Johnson and Linda Van Meeter graciously shared their photos from Penfield Cemetery and Jackson Family Burial Ground of which I have posted on this site with their permission. Thank you ladies.

If I find you have created a memorial duplicate to mine please delete it and I will transfer the memorial I manage to you. I am not hoarding memorials like I have been accused of. The majority of the memorials I have were transferred to me by F.A.G. Admin when another contributor left. Managing a memorial does not mean I must research all of the deceased and add to their memorial. I do not have time.

I will gladly transfer memorials to you if they are not in my family tree. I will not transfer military veteran memorials unless they are family to you. My genealogical research began before records were online and all correspondence was snail-mail. Long time!

My messaging is turned off because I became tired of harassment from some contributors. Please connect to me through a memorial that I manage.

God Bless the USA!!

Why should our tears in sorrow flow
When God recalls his own
And bids them leave a world of woe
For an immortal crown?
Is now e'en death a gain to those
Whose life to God was given?
Gladly to earth their eyes they close
To open them in Heaven.
His toil is past, his work is done
And he is fully blest;
He fought the fight--the victory won
