Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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, but alas too late to add many of our family ,as others gleaned the information from the above website and added it to findagrave.

I will not link my family to entries created as "burial unknown", for that is not the mission of this website as stated below.
"Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information . . ..
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition.
"Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days."

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.

On your problem with posting a photo.
Anyone can post photos--iif there is no room for additional photos--5 photo limit--you can sponsor the memorial for $5--option at top of memorial. Then you can post up to 20 photos I believe. I have sponsored memorials on some of my family members to add additional photos. Just thought I would offer this info to you. Best of Luck.

RE: Woodmere photo on memorial 21356622
I don't know what's wrong with my Cemetery Front Entrance photo. I only placed one photo on the cemetery entrance. I have no idea where all the other photos came from.

RE: Charles Dabney
I'm always interested in anything historical about Mississippi and the South in general. Love all these type of books written by southerners during the Civil War era. And yes, sadness abounds in almost all of them. Lots of information in them as well. Glad you found it!

RE: Susan Macomb d'Hautville
Thank's interesting. I just found her obit. Looks like she died in Switzerland. Please add to the bio:

Newport Mercury (Newport, Rhode Island, Friday, 5 Oct 1928, P7:C&

THREE DEATHS. Mrs. Susan Grand d'Hauteville, Mrs. Ruth D. Ackley, Franklin White

A cable from St. Legier, Switzerland, announces the death there Friday of Mrs. Susan Grand d'Hautville, widow of Frederic S. Grand d'Hauteville, a former well known summer resident of Newport. Mrs. d'Hautville was formerly Miss Macomb and had spent the summers here, occupying the residence on Bellevue and Victoria avenues. Mr. d'Hauteville died June 16, 1918, and his widow has lived the greater part of the time since in Switzerland, where she had a villa "Chateau d'Hauteville." She was in her eightieth year and is survived by two sons, Frederic V. Grand d'Hauteville and Paul Grand d'Hauteville, and a daughter, Miss Renee d'Hauteville.
Of her sons, Mr. Frederic V. Grand d'Hauteville was engaged in important war work in Switzerland, in charge of supplying the needs of French prisoners in Germany. The other son was engaged in Red Cross work in Paris, and was awarded the honor of Knight of Grace in the Grand Priory of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, for his work as director of the British section of the Bureau du Secours Aux Prisoners de Guerre at Berne. Mrs. d'Hauteville was a stockholder of the Newport Casino, a member of the Newport Reading Room, the Redwood Library and Newport Country Club.
