|Bio and Links|
I'm a genealogy enthusiast, a Civil War & U.S. military history buff and have always had a fascination with cemeteries. I'm also a USAF veteran of the Persian Gulf War, a second generation hillbilly and recently commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel. Being a career NCO (former USAF Technical Sergeant), I struggle with this. A large bowl of ice cream usually remedies the situation.|
My current Find-A-Grave projects are locating graves and updating existing memorials for members of two of my great-great-grandfather's Civil War regiments (23rd Kentucky and 28th Ohio Infantries, both Union). I appreciate all of the cooperation I'm receiving from my fellow gravers!
Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow FAG's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative or close friend to someone (simply because the guidelines say that "you don't have to") - shame on you. That's just plain mean. What a truly horrible person it takes to be selfish with the memory of someone's deceased friend or loved one.
Wikipedias definition of "guidelines":
A guideline is a statement by which to determine a course of action. A guideline aims to streamline particular processes according to a set routine or sound practice. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory. Guidelines are not binding and are not enforced..

|HudieGram||RE: Estella Trimbur/Wolfram|
Thank you for your help. The informant on her death record must have added the wrong name for her father. The record is type written and easy to read but clearly wrong: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XXS7-QX3
I appreciate your help very much,

Thank you Rob for taking this picture of my cousin's headstone. His father James was a great uncle to me.

Thank you Rob for the great photo of Estella Anna Applegate Trimbur's headstone and your help.
|HudieGram||RE: Estella Trimbur|
Thank you for your help. I'll link Estella as you recommended even though her death record has Aaron Applegate listed as her father and not John Israel Applegate.
Thank you for your research and great photography!
Thank you so much for the pictures of the Helck's headstones.

Thank your for your dedication and attention. The photo revealed no headstone, darn it, but I certainly appreciated your help.
