Oh my goodness! Say it isn't so. . .

"Many have filled unknown graves, far from home and kindred, with no kind friends to drop a tear or plant a sprig over their unmarked graves..." Pioneer Days in California, John Carr (1891)

~*~I don't like it when I see my family members that are being managed by FindAGrave, and they won't transfer management because of rules. But THEY are not related at all!!!! I'm not going to beg, but this definitely needs to be changed. Having a distant relative managing the memorial is better than having a non-relative managing it.

~*~Info, obits, and photos welcome on any of my memorials! Just let me know so I can add info to my family tree if need be. And anyone is welcome to any of my photos!

~*~I'll transfer any memorial as long as they are not my relatives unless you are closer related than me.

~*~I do include the prefix "Mrs" on my memorials where they are given in obituaries. There's a reason this prefix was included (in most cases) and that was to indicate that she was married and/or a widow! Mrs. John Smith indicates she is married, Mrs. Jane Smith indicates she is divorced/or widowed! PER rules of etiquette, which is seldom used anymore, but this particular rule can give information that could be used in research if otherwise unknown, although it's complicated and confusing at times.

~*~ Were there no God, we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts, and no one to thank.
~Christina Rossetti

~*~ All this belongs to the past now. The old homestead has fallen into other hands, the old people sleep in their quiet graves, and their descendants are scattered. The brave old days are like a dream of the night, scarcely to be remembered in the realities of today.
~Reuben Davis, Recollections of Mississippi and Mississippians

~*~ My mother's people, the people who captured my imagination when I was growing up, were of the Deep South - emotional, changeable, touched with charisma and given to histrionic flourishes. They were courageous under tension and unexpectedly tough beneath their wild eccentricities, for they had an unusually close working agreement with God. They also had an unusually high quota of bulls**t. ~Willie Morris
