Bio and Links
Bio Photo Welcome -

We are doing a holy service by remembering the dead, and preserving history.

I think we all have a piece of the puzzle and if everyone contributes, questions will be answered.
please note - FINDAGRAVE as the name implies is a grave registration site and NOT a genealogy site. Although it can be very useful for genealogy.

This a wonderful site for remembering people. Peoples lives are fascinating and they deserve to be remembered and documented.

Please remember we are not just entering names or stones, but real people. Please ask yourself if your memorial is search-able. All memorials should have last names. Women who never marry, and children don't have maiden names. There is no maiden name unless the name changes. Also please do not use ().

Please do NOT create duplicates.

If you notice any mistakes, please let me know, and I will be happy to fix them. Nobody is perfect, we are all fallible human beings mostly doing the best we can at the moment.

We are merely stewards of 'our' memorials - we manage them and are entrusted with their care and maintenance, but we do not technically 'own' them.

Please read the FAQs (frequently asked questions). Thanks, and please try to resolved unknown burials ASAP.

Please free to use any of my photos with appropriate citations. Will also add updates, -the more info, the better. I don't have a policy about transfers - ask and we can work it out.

"A cemetery is a history of people - a perpetual record of yesterday and sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering - always." (author unknown)

Hi Donna:

Headstones for James W. (sr) & Elizabeth, perhaps Dottie's parents, and James W. (jr) & Jane E., perhaps Dottie's brother and sister-in-law, are very near Clarence Laubach's headstone. I have photographed and added memorials. Corrections and transfer requests welcomed.

Best Regards,
Steve Orso

RE: Elizabeth Hasbrouck.
Preston died 14 September 1982 in Hobe Sound, Florida but I don't have burial information on him and neither does the JMA genealogist. If you find him in the same cemetery as Elizabeth, please let me know.

RE: Charles William Cole
Donna, thanks for letting me know. I apologize for not responding before now. I just found your message.

Got to admit. Saw your note and couldn't remember who he was. Did a search in my memorials. Not there. Then wondered if you left your message on the wrong member. I did a US search for his name and scanned down the list. Saw one in NJ. I knew I had conversed with you on memorials in NJ, so I clicked on that one. Lo and behold, there was my flower & note. I read it over and remembered him then, and there I was naming his wife with her first name but maiden name 'unknown'.

You spotted it and were kind enough to "clue me in" on who she was. Well, now I can tell you, "Thankee". ^_^

(I've started trying to find the notes like this one that I've left, so I can delete them, since they are actually a "no-no" on this site. I hate deleting them, because I have gotten responses from people about the help they did get. Trying to help wherever I can. A quick note posted and I can move on to someone else or back to whatever I was working on. Hey, we all need all the help we can get! These are so much quicker and easier to do than suggest/corrections..... But, rules are rules. I will now add her name that you spotted to give me, filling me in with a clue/fact that I didn't have, and I will then delete my note. Just to think... if I hadn't left that note, (or had already deleted it) you wouldn't have known to let ME know what I didn't know & that I hadn't remembered that I didn't know...thus my help note got me some help instead, but it still proved my point of how they do help... someone... 0_o)


Okay, I'll shush. Many thanks,

RE: Samuel McKinstry McCord
Hi Donna,

I am looking for Sam's daughter NOT mother. Elsie Ann McKinstry McCord (Sam's mom) is #56926482, the link you sent me. I am looking for Sam's daughter Elsie Catherine McCord, born 26 September 1889, Brooklyn, NY. She lived most of her life in Shawangunk, Montgomery and finally Walden with her paternal aunt, Isabella Hunter McCord Burlison, #51163403. She lived with Isabella until her death and then in 1942, I lose her. Pretty sure she would have been buried at this McCord site.

Hi Donna,

I found that his father, Martin Levi Shipp and his mother, Mollie Shipp Tinker, are buried in the Estates of Serenity Cemetery in Marion. His brother, Henry, is also buried there, if you want to link them to him. Thanks for writing to me.

Hi Donna,

Thank you for letting me know that I had made a duplicate, I wasn't aware of it. I got my info from the site: At that site, you click on Grant County, then cemeteries, then Sheila Watson's cemetery surveys. There will be a list of all the cemeteries in Grant County, go to Weaver Cemetery, and click on that and you will see all the names and info of burials there. It said he was born on 3-1-1911 and died on 8-7-1930 and his parents were Martin Levi and Mollie Shipp. I will delete my memorial and you can add his parents names to your memorial. Thank you for letting me know. Have a happy day!
