We had a successful disinterment and reinterment of Jacob Youtcy in Kelvin/Kearny, Arizona. Over 300 people attended the funeral. Horses, caisson, Civil War re-enactors, Catholic priest in period vestments, the train honked as it went past the cemetery and two military planes flew over the parade and waggled their wings at Jacob as we went through town. Over 100 of his descendants and their families attended as well. God gave us a fantastically humbling day.

A Standers Affirmation

I made mistakes. Horrible ones. And poor choices. And was selfish and arrogant and lazy at times. I thought I was giving everything to my wife and marriage and children, but now I see so many places I could have done better, done more, made better choices, used kinder words.

I am still in love with my wife. I said "for better or for worse" and meant it. I said "in good times and in bad" and meant it. And I said "until death do us part" and I meant it. I still mean those things.

I will not speak angry words to my wife or about my wife. I will not use the children as pawns. I will not return slights with slights. I will speak love and goodness to her, about her.

So I am "standing" for our marriage. What that really means is I'm kneeling in prayer for our marriage. I will trust in God's faithfulness and His ability to do ANYTHING, including change hearts and reroute divorce. I was wrong in so many ways. Please forgive me, Barbara. I love you.

Lazar Ludwig Bergler is my husbands great grandfather. On the memorial there is a note he died at 55, can you tell me where you found this information. I have been looking for Lazar for 20 years, have found close to nothing.
Thank you,

George Seely
Hi Darly and Barbara,

I have transferred some of my Seely memorials to Dee Poole. In doing so, I noticed that I caused you to add George Seely as a duplicate because I had him as being William George Seely. Please delete your memorial. Dee will be adding information as well as correcting his name.

Pleas accept my apology for causing this problem.

Good Evening- I just clicked on the Find a Grave Memorial for my great grandfather-Joseph Zito(Giuseppe) and found that it has been merged. The memorial includes personal family photograph and other information that I had gathered and posted in my memorial for my GGF. I don't know why it had been merged into your memorial, but I am requesting that this memorial be returned to me. Thank you

You have a memorial for this person in Avalon Cemetery, Santa Catalina Island, California. Can you please let me know what your source is? I walk this cemetery twice a year and have transcribed/photographed all visible markers. This is a very small cemetery and no one can be buried here unless they lived here or have a very strong tie here, such as owning a vacation home, or they attended school here as a child, etc. I was on the grounds last October and I saw no marker or cenotaph for him.

Please point me in the direction of your source.

Thank you.

Frederick Eplin
Find A Grave Memorial# 60460617
He was not the son of John Eplin born in 1802. He was an illegitmate son of Sherrod Adkins and Lydia Lattice Parson who was married to John Epling first and after he died Sherrod took her in and had Susannah who is my ancestor, Rebecca, William, Frederick.
I have the military records of John Epling. I have also gone through the film for West Virginia Notebooks and have that printed off.
Here ia also a copy of Cabell County Heritage on the Eplin(Epling) Families
HISTORY: Cabell County Heritage; US/CAN 975.442 H2c; PG:
The Cabell County Eplin(g)s are descendants of John Paul Epling, probably born in Germay about 1750, and died 1809 in Giles Co., VA. His five sons were named in his will: John, Daniel, Paul, Isaac and Phillip. For some reason, both John's often used the name John Miller. The son John married 3 Nov. 1801 Giles Co. Lydia Parson (parents unknown). John was her guardian. John and Lydia removed to Cabell Co. by 1808, as tenants on the property of Isaac McComas' father (John?) John Epling served in the US Army for six winter months in 1812 under extreme harship and died about 1 May 1813 within weeks of his return home. Lydia was left with five small children according to the pension application she later filed. Identification of these children has been difficult as there are nine Eplins born 1804-1825 who cannot be definitely assigned to anyone else.
Possible children of John & Lydia Epling: 1. Henry Epling born 1804, died after 1872, married in Cabell 21 Jul 1823 Jane Adkins born 1804 died 1878 daughter of Randolph Adkins and Charity Adkins. They had at least these children: *Amsetta, *William, *Randolph, *Lydia, *Rhoda, *John, *Julia, *Namcy, *Polly, *Bazel,
received a land grant 100 acres on Beech Fork 1834. No further record. 3. Sary Epling married in Cabell 24 Jun 1835 Frederick Carter. NFI. 4. John Eplin born 1813 married in Cabell 24 Jan 1834 Julia Ann Parsons born 1817 daughter of William & Susannah Parsons. They moved to Campbell County KY where John died by 1870. They had ten children.
Eplins born after 1813, parentage unknown: 1. Susanna Eplin born 1817 married in Cabell 18 Jan 1838 Bazell Massey. They moved to MN by 1872 and in 1900 Spokane WA with a daughter Margaret Hicks. Ten Massey children. 2. Elizabeth Eplin born 1823 married Cabell 12 Sep 1840 William Elkins. Children: Samuel, Margaret and Wesley. NFI after 1850 Cabell Census. 3. Rebecca Epling born 1824 died after 1880 married Cabell 26 Jul 1838 Vincent Lucas Nine children: *Susan, *Parker, *William, *Delphia, *Edward, *David, *Rebecca, *Vinson, *Irvin. May families in Cabell. 4. William Eplin born 1824 married Susannah (Mays?) living with their only child Melissa Nance in 1900 in Boyd Co. KY. 5. Frederick Eplin born 1825 died by 12 Feb 1858 married Elizabeth Adkins daughter of Sherrod and Sarah Adkins. Five children: Mahala, Sherod, Surilda, Mary , Frederick.
William and Frederick jointly conveyed several parcels of land, and in 1856 inherited all land of Sherrod Adkins Sr. by his 1854 will witnessed by Vincent Lucas and Bazell Massey. Lydia Eplin lived with Frederick's family in 1850 and 1860.
My mother was Ruth Emily 6 Epling (1897-1976): (William5, John4, Paul3, Isaac2, John Paul1 Epling of Giles Co. VA)

Thank you for your time.
