|Bio and Links|
A little ring encompasses our lives and many generations link the rings of theirs, thus forming a chain that is without end. -Goethe|
Walking the cemeteries, learning the history of those who have passed gives one a sense of accomplishment. I love every moment. I've transcribed Mound in Pike Co. OH. for many years. I also transcribe Gardner in Pike Co., Harmon in Scioto, Blanton Branch in Johnson Co., KY, as well as other cemeteries in Clark, Green, Highland, Pike, Ross, Scioto & Johnson Co.. KY. I've taken pictures of headstone's, gone back a few years later & couldn't make them out. The elements are hard on the old one's. I'm in this because Genealogy is my passion. It has been for 37 years and will be until someone is taking a picture of my stone.
I'm also very glad to transfer. I have a strong belief family should manage family, be it a recent death or four generations past but I won't transfer my BLANTON Memorial's. I've researched the Blanton's for 37 years this Sept. I've labored hard & long, visited many states, counties, court houses & cemeteries. You might as well say I've researched them half my life. I'll be glad to add info to their memorial's but I won't transfer them.
Please don't post obituaries/bio's to flower/note section or correct me there. Send an Edit & I will make the changes. If not I create a new memorial without the info posted to the p/n section. Send as many as you want. Anything going into the Bio Section is given credit by the contributor.
I also follow FAG policy by omitting the living from obituaries & not posting obituary pictures. I'm slowly removing the living & pictures from obituaries I previously posted unless permission has been granted.
If I've created a duplicate, "duplicate" is all that's required by FAG. I add duplicate #, date originated & by who. I'm more than glad to remove duplicates. It's never done intentionally.
I also try to never post the living. Because a stone has two names, doesn't mean both are deceased. Someone made a memorial for one of my "very alive" cousins. The spouse had passed but not my cousin. This is also against FAG policy. You can't Find A Grave of the living.
Lastly, a member once told me FAG thought the memorials should open like a book. I agree. It can't if you don't link the families. They should be linked in death as they were in life.
PRAYER FOR GENEALOGISTS
Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient road
On which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

Thank you for entering this memorial and photographing his headstone.
(that's a neat-looking font they used for the lettering!)
I'm his sister's granddaughter and never knew he existed until a month ago.

Okay, thanks! I'm not very familiar with Ross county cemeteries either unless they are close to the Pike county area.
|Julie Knox/Graves-Birkhimer||Ross County Cemeteries|
Are you familiar with a Roberts or Harris Station Cemetery in Ross County? I've had several death certificates with Roberts Cemetery, but I'm the only one that has entered anything there.
Thanks for any info you have!

We've got a photo bandit, I'm trying to protect you from. Lol
Thank you for your prompt response!
|Stone✞Searcher||Will You Add your Photo|
You uploaded a photo to memorial # 32269927. Turns out that it's a duplicate. Could you instead add it to #31890134 - David Allen Mustard
Thank you for your time

I just want to thank you for the invaluable service you have provided to the dead and the families that want to remember or find them.
You will be greatly rewarded for this.
