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.
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.
These records, especially Death records, can contain private and sensitive information that family members may not want shared.
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!!
Please do not put photos of newspaper obits on the memorials. These take up limited spaces in the photo allotment. If you have an obit then please type it up and submit it through the edit option and I would be happy to add it to the bio section as long as the name of the newspaper and date of publication are included.
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..."

|Margie Etter||Adella V Lauer|
Adella's maiden name is Loman. She was married to Thomas William Heddleson who died 21 may 1901 and is buried in the New Matamoras Cemetery.
|John Blakemore Sellers||RE: UNKNOWN PRICHARD|
I totally agree with you Anna. Took out the picture and added it to yours. Glad you found his death certificate. I added his wife, as she died about the time he did. Also we need to link him to his father Lewis Prichard. I have been referring to the book "Descendants of William Prichard". I am a true believer in solving the inscription mysteries with rubbings.
Thanks for your attention to details and providing accuracy. Let me know if you need help on one of the memorials, as it was just transferred to me unexpectedly.
|Memory||RE: Hood Cemetery photos|
I am not quite sure where my head was when I went, I didn't get a picture of the cemetery, usually I get at least 2. There were several stone I couldn't get to because the grass was so high and there seemed to be a drop off but I couldnt tell where. There is at least one entire row that I wasn't even gonna try for :)
It's also hard to say how many stones were down that I couldn't find, I saw a couple areas in the high grass that looked like stones could be there. It would be nice if the land owner would mow.

Quite by accident I came upon your entry of my mother's grave marker in Parkersburg, West Virginia. It never occurred to me that someone may have taken a picture of it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My mother died on April 24, 2014, and it appears that you took the photo about one year after that. May I ask if there was a request for it or if you simply took the photo by chance. I am returning the favor and will become a contributor to Find a Grave.
Thank you again. I am in tears.

|Chris Painter||Albert J. Ewing|
I'm working on obtaining information on Albert J. Ewing, and I noticed that you posted a pic on his memorial. Do you mind if I include this photo in the information I am gathering? Do you happen to have more info on this family? Thanks, and I hope to hear from you soon~
|Jeff torman||RE: PFC Emory LeRoy Taylor|
You are welcome. I will try to get the photo turned.
|Arlene||RE: Flavil Howell|
No I'm not going to delete Flavil Hawell Memorial. I just got him in the wrong cemetery by mistake. I didn't mean to.

|JIm Mullen||RE: James Mullen|
Thanks you so much for your efforts! Yes, I believe James was buried in the old Barker Cemetery because the new on wasn't in use when he passed. It's believed his marker and possibly his grave was washing away by the years of floods on the Ohio River. The old one was down by the river. I found a book at Marietta, Ohio Library that listed all the readable markers in 1961. James was not there. I fear he is forever lost.
I, too, have come up empty in my search for his parents or previous information. A small obit I found in a Marietta Paper said he came from Pa.
If I find anything I'll let you know. My next step is checking various spellings, Mullin, Mullens, Mullins, McMullen, etc.
Be well, Jim Mullen (304) 422-5340
Thank you so much for taking the time to fulfill my photo request! It is great appreciated! ;)

I just found a duplicate memorial for Flavil Howell. He was a neighbor of mine in Dalzell years ago.Your memorial # 116540015...the other is #115111346.
The first one was added August 8,2013 by Arlene. Yours was added Sept4, 2013. Yours has the correct burial at East Lawn. The other one has his burial at Salem Township Cemetery.
Perhaps you and Arlene can get together and combine information into one memorial?
