|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. Edit & send. 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. I'm glad to do this. Credit is always given.
I also follow FAG policy by omitting the living from obituaries & not posting pictures I did not take. I'm slowly removing the living & pictures from obituaries I previously posted.
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.
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.

|Cindy Hamilton||Larry Overholser Transfer|
Thank you for transferring management of my grandfather, Larry Overholser to me. Also, thank you for creating the memorial for him and including the information from his obituary, I really appreciate it. I am curious, did you know him?
In addition, I saw in your bio that you are researching the Blantons of Johnson County, KY. William and Martha (Blanton) Pennington are my 4x great grandparents.
Have a good weekend. Thank you, Cindy Hamilton
|Nina Welsh||transfer of Find A Grave Memorial# 126805041|
I would like to know if you would be willing to transfer memorial #126805041, Greenleaf Norton Louderback, to me. He is my gggrandfather. I have been trying to research my great grandfather, Francis M. Louderback, son of Greenleaf, but our family has no clue as to whatever happened to him. I can only find him on two census (when he was young), and a marriage certificate for him and my great grandmother. I have been unable to locate any divorce or death records as I would have to know where and when he died. No one in my family has any information. Also, do you know if a findagrave site can be made for a relative that one has no death records on? I do have an old photo of Francis Louderback, and I would like to tie my grandpa (Frank's son) and family to his grandpa (Greenleaf). Thank you.
