It was the custom of our family, out of respect; to visit the cemeteries where our family members are resting. I no longer live in my home state so this site is the next best thing.
As time allows, I can be found "adding names" to my former home state cemeteries. I'd like to think I'm leaving a small memorial to the people of Southwestern Pa., and hope that someday the information will be useful to the generations of the next millennium.
A favorite Russian proverb; "We live as long as we are rememberedů" Find-a-grave helps us do just that.
Just a Note to everyone who may be contacting me:
I do not at present have internet available at home. I DO read all emails and I DO read all corrections, it just takes me time to make corrections or connections.
OK ... lately I've been getting over-whelmed transfer requests for memorials that have been on Findagrave 5 to 7 years. For me to consider these requests please state how you're related to the requested transfer.
I'm very sorry I can't possibly transfer every memorial I have posted, I'm not trying to be unresonable but I'm having people request transfers when they're not even remotely related. I love Findagrave, the memorials aren't suppose to be about "who" owns them, it's to remember those who are no longer with us.
Transfer Dave could you please transfer these two site to me as I am a true descendent of theirs. the sites are 7900336 Emeline Butler Keys and 7900354 Mary Ellen Butler Pratt Thanks for your concertation on this subject.
Moving page to cemetery You have a George E. Zimmerman obit and information with burial "Unknown". I have been photographing Horn Cemetery in Marianna, Washington Co., PA. Could you move his information to that cemetery and I can place the picture. His parents are there and as soon as I put them in there will be numbers to include him as part of the family. Thank you, Janis Noonan
Memorial 35218374 Dear friend, I see this man, my grandmother's cousins husband; a beloved family member in the our history. Records indicate he is buried in West Finley Cemetery and you have him in the Fairmount Cemetery. He was married to Rosanna Ealy Sampson until her early death and later he married his second wife Mary McMurry Sampson. Both his wives are buried at West Finley also. Could you look into this and possibly correct? Your Albert is duplicated on memorial 131278758, in West Finley Cemetery.
Bernard L Richardson Hi Dave, I have a question for you. I created a memorial #145479190. You have one also but the birth years are way different. Do you think by chance they messed the dates up on the marker? Or do you think they are 2 different people? Randy
Edna Louise Carter - 10738676 I respectfully request that you delete Memorial 10738676. There is a more complete Memorial 105765973 done by her daughter that has many family connections attached. Thank you
