I enjoy taking and posting photos.
Cemetery walking involves planning, time, gas, bees, flies, gnats, ticks, assorted other bugs, dogs, burrs, briars, weeds, tall grass, snakes, scrapes, cuts, mud, dirt, snow, rain, dust, wind, sun, rutted roads, hills and dales, getting lost, and BUCKETS of sweat.
I had to throw my lunch to a couple wild peacocks headed my way. Seems they have a fondness for egg salad.
I appreciate those folks who list their source when posting my photos to Ancestry.com :)

Thank you for the transfer of him. His great or GG grandfather was conscripted by the British in the 1700s. He switched sides and fought for the Americans in the Rev. War and was murdered by Indians in about 1813 in Southern Illinois.

Can I have him transferred to me as he is a 2x great uncle of mine. I just came back from visiting his grave and family. I added the OB that I found in the paper! My findagrave number is 46849125! Also can I have his wife, Amanada C, his daughter, Mary E. Summers and husband Henry Summers, his son, Frank W. White and his son, William C. White and wife and family?

Thank you for transferring my great great grandfather's John Weese memorial #63595394. You really didn't have to transfer it and you are doing such a great job with all your memorials- and I think I was pretty much done updating it. But thank you for all your help on that one and also other relatives that are in your care. I do so appreciate it.. Thank you- Steve Grover

Hello again Debra,
Thank you for your generosity in transferring:
James Elmer Reed # 113709299
to my care. With your help, I have successfully connected him with his parents, six of his eight siblings, his two wives and his two children. As I receive more information, I will add it to Our shared memorial.
With sincerest appreciation,

Mr. Galusha's Bones- Vicksburg Cemetery
Date: 7/10/2016, 10:25 am
A Western paper is responsible for the story that Mr. Galusha, a one-armed soldier, living near Aurora, Illinois, recently found the bones of his lost arm in a Vicksburg cemetery, where they had been buried after the seige. He identified the lost arm by a ring found on one of the fingers and preserved, the ring being numbered to correspond with the number of the little grave in which nothing but the arm was interred.
Northern Ohio journal (Painesville, Ohio) 20 Jul 1878 man. Appears to be, James Earl (Sam) Price
|Dennis Bell||Pleasant H Armstrong|
Debra, I was doing some research in the Pleasant Run Cemetery in Story County Iowa and discovered the mostly buried tombstone of Pleasant H. Armstrong. It is located in row 25 next to the tombstone of Frank Jackson. I have added the photos to Find A Grave 92678371. I believe his brother Samuel O. Armstrong is also buried in Pleasant Run, this again according to the Allens History of Story County, Iowa.
I will submit a few change recommendations via the standard submission process. Thanks for putting the record together.
