Find A Grave ID


I have been doing my family genealogy for over 30 year along with several other family members. On my Cantrall family line my Great-great grand parents William and Charlotte had 10 children, in the 1890's they lost three daughters in 3 years. During our research we were able to find the final resting places for all but one of Charlotte and Bill's children, their daughter Olive who died about 1895. All we know of her was she had died because we had a picture of her in her casket and on the picture it says Everett WA.
For years we looked for her but could never find anything. Then one day I woke up and thought to myself this is the day, I got on my computer went to "Find a Grave" typed in her name and her memorial page came up. A woman in Everett WA took a picture of Olive's headstone not because anyone requested it but because she wanted to help a family locate a long lost relative that they couldn't find. She had no idea that anyone was looking for Olive, she just took random pictures and put them on her find a grave site. So I want to pass along this act of kindness by doing the same thing, by extending the Olive branch. I will be taking random pictures of head stone that are over 50 years old and posting them.
