|I've been doing genealogy research for about 35 years. I started before you could turn on your computer and do the research from your home. While I enjoy the convenience of using the internet to do research, I still enjoy the more "hands on" approach. I've taken many trips over the years to courthouses, cemeteries, to visit elderly family members, etc. along the way. For me, the online research just doesn't bring the same satisfaction that I feel when I am able to go dig up the information in person. I've enjoyed meeting cousins that I never knew I had, and I've also been able to reconnect with family members that I've lost contact with over the years. This has become a great hobby, and I've enjoyed learning all the interesting stories, both good and bad, about my family history. I hope I have and am playing some small part in getting younger members of my family interested in what came before them. |
I'm happy to share whatever information that I have. Feel free to use the grave photos that I've added without contacting me. I've uploaded them for your use. All I ask is that you list where you got the photo along with the cemetery, city, state so others can find the grave if they wish to visit it. I'm happy to take photos of graves in my area for other people and upload them to memorials here. I think of it as a kind of payment for those who have been kind enough to get photos for me. I try to take the kind of photos that I would like to have....well focused, as readable as possible, and a good angle.
As for the more PERSONAL PHOTOS, I'd like to be contacted before anyone adds them to another website or uses them in any other way. I love sharing, but I also like to know where and how my research and/or personal family photos will be used, and I like to know that credit is given to the proper individual(s) if my research or photos are used by others. I feel it's extremely important that future researchers be able to get to original sources of pictures and other documents the same way that I and others did. It's very frustrating to see a supposed photo of someone on the internet, but the person posting the photo doesn't have the original, can't tell you where the original is or any other information about it, and doesn't even know for sure that the photo is correctly identified.
I'm happy to transfer any memorials that don't belong to my family. Just let me know if I am managing a memorial which is of your family member, and I'll get it transferred to you ASAP if I'm not related. I like to see memorials in the hands of family or friends who can add to the memorial and make it the best it can be.

|Rhonda Fraley Burnett||John Martin Brickey & John William Brickey|
I think there are two children w/ the first name of John. In the 1880 census, there was John W age 2 and he is William in the 1900. In the 1900 census w/ Parish Brickey, there was another son John M. and he was Martin in 1910 census.
It does get confusing!! I know a family where every male had the first name of John and they were all called by their middle name.
You're right, genealogy can make you crazy!!
Any other questions, let me know.

Hello, I added info as you gave me. Thank you very much for the newspaper notices. Are you related to the Dungan or Westfall family ? I also added memorials for the children of Julia Westfall & Levi Dungan I could find.
|Robert Strickland||RE: Thank you!|
You are welcome. Glad I could help.
|Arabelle||RE: Thank you!|
Not a problem, and you are most welcome. I will eventually make it back over there sometime to finish the entire cemetery. :)

|Kevin Frye||L Munroe Grave 6655|
Andersonville National Cemetery
Grave 6655 holds the remains of Andersonville prisoner PVT James Brown 4th New York Cavalry.
There are just two Munroe prisoners buried at Andersonville. James with the 4th Maryland Infantry and James with the 2nd Mass Cavalry. I have photographed all of the 14000 Union graves at Andersonville and have them on disk , I also have a copy of the Andersonville NTL Historic Sites databases. Also checked Monroe,, Same results.
