Bio and Links
Since 1990, I have been working on the genealogy of my husband's family. In 1997 a computer was foisted on me and the real fun started! I began researching my own family in 2000 as a 70th b-day present for my brother. In sleuthing for family gravesites in the Northeast, we have physically unearthed family headstones. During the process of gathering family data, we have had a refresher course in US History as well as some post-grad work. The threads of our country's fabric have been spun from the family histories in our cemeteries.

In 2003-04,I had the pleasure of working with Michael Robert Patterson to identify family genealogy in many burials he had listed on his superb Arlington National Cemetery website. Michael linked the families on the website and supplied copious biographical information. The "family" continually amazed us both. At the time, I neglected to enter names in findagrave's Arlington list and have tried to catch up.

All of my entries in Find a Grave have been family members,until recently when I put in a few names from some obscure places that may be your family.

RE: Francis Sweeney
Hello Shirley,

The only information I have on the Sweeneys is what was shown on the tombstone. I've uploaded the images :

Hope it'll help you a little bit.

Sorry, I don't know. I just happened to be there and took random photos.

Do you want to transfer management to me, or are you satisfied with maintaining her memorial yourself?

Thanks for your explanation. This is like the Lemon/Lemons family of central Missouri. I admire them for being who/what they wanted to be.

Hi Shirley: I entered 3 Givens before I realized you had entered them as "Given". My source for the records I'm using is James Givens, a member of the Genealogical Society of Central Missouri. Unless you are certain the name is used in Maries county as Given, please change all your listings as as the Givens don't appear in a search.
