Genealogy has become my newest addiction!|
Taphophilia = an abnormal love for graves and cemeteries. The love of walking cemeteries and finding lost relatives and the gravesites of ancestors.
If you've never taken a few moments to spend time in the cemetery...You're really missing out. The peace and tranquility you find in them. Those that have gone before many times have left a final message on their tombstones. These messages are an inspiration and make me feel humbled and blessed! Go ahead...take the time...walk your local cemetery and read their messages and see how they reach out and touch you! You'll be glad you did! (quoted from another find-a-graver)
THE STORY TELLERS
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe.
"When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."
I would prefer that birth/death/marriage certificates not be posted to the memorials I have created. I prefer the space be made available for photos of the person since most of these documents are easily found online and can be transcribed to the bio area of the memorial.
The addition is even less helpful if an edit request is not sent to have the pertinent information added to the memorial. Thanks for your cooperation!!

|cynthia mullens||RE: PFC Gordon Dean Perry photo|
I am in East Oak Grove frequently. I'll stop back by in a week or so (after the weather breaks.....snow storm coming in) & look on the other side of the stone. I will remember where it is because most of the Perrys are in a separate plot & I was excited to finally find Gordon. I thought on the way out that I should have gotten a photo of the face of that statue!
Thanks for your note.

Clayton D Payne is buried in the Watertown Cemetery. On his find-a-grave it says his parents are William and Alice Wilson Payne. I have been trying to find another wife for a William F Payne's Father of Clayton and this is the first time I have seen Alice Wilson Payne's name. I called information and they have no listing for Watertown Cemetery. Can you tell me where you found that information about Clayton's parents? Also is Watertown Cemetery very big who do you think would have the records?
Thanks for all you do
