I've been researching my family history for almost 30 years and this is an absolute passion :)
Primary surnames are McCluskey, Curran, Barber, Neil & Edgar (maternal) and Chester, Thompson, Slawson, Templeton & Holmes (paternal).
I share with many the firm belief that 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. As another member so eloquently stated, the ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away - regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.
I'm certainly open to transferring memorials or updating as needed; my goal is to 'connect not collect'. Please use the Edit tab.
You are welcome to copy and use anything I post in any way you like.
Memorials Joe Thank you for adding me to your family website and for the changes to my sister Edythe. Joe sorry it's taken so long to get back to you but I was on vacation when we first connected. Since going back to work it has been hard to get time to myself. I found a copy of Sanford Templeton's death certificate so I was able to add him on. Was not able to find picture. My sister thinks she has picture of Miles and his wife. Just has to find them. Found records showing Williams father was a vet of the war of 1812. Will add info as I get it. Joe I tried to contact you on email that was on my grave, but got no answer so will try public message. Do you have my direct email if not please let me know. Gary
RE: Slawson @ Saint Marys/Rome you are quite welcome I saw only one name requested at the time so I checked to see if the others had a memorial I did not see one for Lena or Louis so I added them thought you might be looking for them also :-) Lorraine
RE: Cecil & Beulah Templeton Joe Thank you and I will. I will be adding pictures to Miles, Fred, and Anna's memorials and I will give you some more info on Williams parents so that may be added if you want. I see you are an Army vet. I spent nine years in the service also in the Navy and then eleven years as a civilian Navy and Marine instructor. Thank you for your service. Gary
RE: Cecil & Beulah Templeton Joe Thank you for adding my parents date of marriage. Joe if you would like to transfer the memorials to me that would be great. I would like to put in bios and additional information. Thank you Gary
