Bio and Links
Bio Photo I give permission to anyone who wishes to use the photos I have taken freely. The headstones were placed by family members in honor of their loved one. I claim no ownership and consider my effort to be for the public good. Photos are for those who may not be able to visit their family members, freinds and genealogy purposes...

I welcome updates and corrections to the memorials I have control of. Please submit updates for a memorial using only the edit tab on that person's memorial page, others may not be accomplished as fast.

I will transfer to family members within the Find A Grave guidelines if you have the same goals I've stated. Please submit your request using the edit tab and tell me your relationship to the person.

The Find A Grave guideline for transfer requests says: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents." If you are related and I am not, I will be happy to transfer to you if you explain your relationship and accept the continued effort to complete the memorial.

My goal is to document all my memorials by getting obituaries for each and every internment, a photo of their stone, a picture of them, Death Certificate and connect them to their spouses, children and parents.

Vanny Chris Mahana
Dear Mr. Cappen,

I am a student at Westlake High School. I am currently working on a memorial project for Vietnam Soldiers. I am doing my project on Vanny Chris Mahana and noticed you wrote something on his page. I was wondering if you had any information, stories, or pictures of Private Vanny Chris Mahana that you would be willing to share with me.
Thank you for your time,
Avery Shepherd

Hi Wayne,

I notice you requested a photo for Sylvis Long. He is my Grandfather. I do have a picture of this somewhere. Are you related to the Long's?

Wayne, thanks for the heads up. I don't know how we both missed the duplication but it's happened to me before. I've sent a message to the creator of the original Find A Grave memorial and asked if she will copy my family links before I delete. I'll get this taken care of. Thanks, Tom

Edward Page.
I suspect that the Cemetery Hopper made an assumption about the cemetery's name despite the large sign displaying the name, Ireland. Maybe it wasn't there in 2007.

Town of Hartland Cemetery Index
The index was created by volunteers who read and recorded every headstone in Hartland and was compiled in 2004 by the Hartland Historical Society.

Cemeteries listed:
Black Stream Cemetery, AKA Coston Corner Cemetery
Jordan Cemetery, AKA Starbird Cemetery
Nevens Cemetery
Pine Grove Cemetery
Village Cemetery, AKA Ireland or Pleasant Street Cemetery

In the past, I have tried to have duplicate named cemeteries resolved by the powers that be with very limited luck. If you check other names in the "Hartland" cemetery, I am sure you will find a lot more "Duplicate," Ruth Page for instance.

Hi Wayne,
Thanks for the edits you suggested. I guess you saw the info in the bio also would need to be changed. Could you send me some more info about him?

Death of graver
Wayne - Janet and I have just received word that our fellow graver known as jrrmr910 has died. Her daughter sent a very nice note but only said her mother, Millie, died November 1. Do you know her last name? - would love to place flowers on her memorial. Thanks

I know I'm always a day late and a dollar short; but as was looking thru the sight I read your Bio and it is one of the most thoughtful, kindest, and caring I have read on here!

I'm like you; anything I put on here, everyone is welcome to! Think I'll go rewrite my Bio!

And thank you so much for Elma Hock Davis' Death Certificate! I never knew why she died so young!

You are a Great Asset to Find A Grave!!!
