I just like cemeteries and leaving flowers. Thanks are not necessary. If you would like me to remove my token from your relative's memorial, you have only to ask. If you're in my friends list, you probably have a virtual cemetery I want to wander. I came here to find Rhonda Lou Jones, buried in Britt IA. She is one of the memorials in my virtual cemetery "missed." The first person entered in "missed" was Mary Helen Swope, whom I was dismayed to find here. Tiny cemetery with fewer than 100 people? I'm there! Cemetery in an odd place (traffic circle, parking lot, median strip)? Love it! Abandoned/neglected cemetery with headstones centuries out of date? Cool! Cemetery I would most like to participate in clean-up and restoration: Old Trinity Cemetery, in the awesomely-named Bone Gap, Edwards County, IL. I visit it on They wrote an article about it: "Nature Reclaims an Abandoned and Forgotten Cemetery," in 2010. Cemetery I most want to see in person: Saint Francis Assisi Cemetery in Brainerd, MN. It's located in Crow Wing State Park--how cool is that? I learned of its existence via Amy C. Rea's blog entry for May 9, 2012. Most disturbing cemetery pictures: with CemeteryTraveler's article "The Watery Remains of Monument Cemetery." Cemetery I want to see before it disappears completely: Orphans' Home Cemetery in Atchison, Kansas. How I want my remains disposed of: Take my ashes and those of my beloved pet, put us in a Bios Urn, and plant us on the site of my childhood home. Add violet & viola seeds. Put up a field stone (we have enough of them around), engraving optional. Let the Bios Urn tree, as it grows, engulf the stone. Carving tree trunk optional. Never dig me up again.

Thank you for the tribute you left for Robin Williams today. It's one of the most touching ones I've seen on his memorial in a long time.

RE: Revolutionary war veteran
Thank you for the suggestion, but I only record graves that I have personally visited and photographed in the Cortlandt, Peekskill Yorktown environs of Northern Westchester.

RE: Rye deaths
If there are any memorials that I have made and you want transferred just let me know. You are closer in relationships, than my husband. I just want to make sure everyone is listed and connected. Have a good day Cindy.

Your problem report
Lazarus Heady in the heady burial ground.
I was there in October and the trees and other impedimentia have been removed, the burial ground has been taken under care by the new Castle historical Society..many stones have been removed for repair and restoration.
So your report based on a comment from the 1960's may need to be reconsidered.
Pleasse restore the request?

RE: yes
AR, I was looking in my past messages and we have discussed the Rye family before. I was wondering if you add all the new deaths and make memorials? I add the new information to the book when I find it through obituaries. Harriet's book was published in 1994. There are many who have passed on since then. I do not want them forgotten.

RE: yes
AR, if there are any memorials I have made that you would like transferred to you just let me know. My husband's relation to the Rye's are through Gullick's wife Anna Marie (Sanderson) Rye. Anna's father was a brother to my husband's great grandmother Lukris (Sanderson) Paulson.The person who made all the memorials for the Rye's in Worth County Iowa,just transferred them to me. I had all that information and connections to add to memorial and she just transferred them. Merry Christmas Cindy.
