Bio and Links
Bio Photo I took over after my Aunt Geraldine Martinez passed. This is all new to me but I have become addicted in finding where my family members rest. No one should be forgotten.

I was born in Alexandria, Virginia and now resides in Florida.

I am researching, on my fathers side of the family, Rhodes, Walters, Wright & Brockman in Virginia. On my mothers side, Lytle, Channing, Hayden & Moore in Pennsylvania. And for my Grandchildren, Greene, Caudill. Hutchinson & Vallance's in Kentucky.

I have noticed that I am not the only one impatient with the tokens coming up and I end up with two. I found that if you click on the flowers it will take you to a link to delete the extra one. =)

I have also found a link to calculate birth dates, so when you only have a date of death & the headstone gives you their years it will give you the date of birth. http://longislandgenealogy.com/birth.html

I have met the most wonderful people with Find-a-Grave. What a great family we have here. Thank you all for doing what you do.

Everyone has been so generous with their photos that I would like to reciprocate. You may use my photos in you family trees. All I ask is for a thank you and recognition from whom you got them.

Happy Hunting =)


Strangers in the Box

By Pamela A. Harazim

Come, look with me inside this drawer,
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, serene.
I wish I knew the people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories
Are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like.
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time
To tell who, what, where, when,
These faces of my heritage
Would come to life again.
Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories
Someday to be tossed away?
Make time to save your pictures,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.

Jo,

I didn't know about the contest. Many on this website view it as a contest. They collect memorials and are unwilling to add biographies or transfer to contributors willing to make meaningful additions.--Storres

Jo,

You are welcome. All is well, photo requests have been infrequent lately. Keep checking this memorial for the GPS location. The coordinates will appear when the edit is approved. You may use the photos and you do not have to give me credit.--Storres

RE: Magdalena Pletcher Hibschman
You're welcome. You may use the photo. I did find a little info on her spouse Andrew on Newspaper Archive. He died 3 Nov 1895 in Wabash, Indiana. His funeral was in Elkhart 6 Nov. He has a brother named Dan. I did find a marker for Andrew J. Hibshman, same section, same death date, different spelling. #147448208.
