I am a retired widowed senior with four children. I began genealogy research a few years ago about 2000. Sometime in 2005 I located my father's grave site. After meeting three first cousins (his nieces and nephews of my father's) that I had no idea existed. I found out he was buried somewhere in Ohio. So I then contacted funeral directors in the area, specifically in Cincinnati, OH. That is very near Wyoming Ohio, where his mother lived when he died and Carthage, Ohio where he was born. I then located the funeral director's office "IMWALLE" Memorial Home in Cincinnati. They graciously did a search of their records and found my father's cemetery information which was sent to me. A year later I went to see it and photographed the site with me next to his grave. Amazingly, I found his Maternal grandmother Mary McCarthy Fitzpatrick who is buried next to him!
His mother is buried in Albuquerque, New Mexico, his father in Oak Hill Cemetery in Cincinnati, OH
Beverly Ruth Byrd Hello I was looking on the Riverside National Cemetery website and noticed you had left a note requesting information on my mother. I'm her youngest son and would be more then happy to answer any question you might have. I really never knew my grandmother Ruth McMills as she passed 3 years before I was born, however her mother, Maud (My great-grandmother) lived with my family most of my life. My name is John Robert and I was told I was named after one of my mother's favorite cousins.
RE: Thank you in advance Thank you for your kind remarks, but alas, I can not accept the credit for your McMills burials in Findagrave. Most of the graves in that particular cemetery were put there by the Utah State Historical Society. But it is for you that Findagrave exists, and why it is so popular. Please continue to enjoy the site, and if you get the chance, please feel free to add to the burials.
Sergio Reyes Grave Thank you for your nice message. I'm glad to have helped you out. If you will click on the photo of the grave marker, you'll see that I added a caption of the grave's location. You can also add that to his Memorial Page where it says "Plot." That's something you'll have to do since you are the creator of his Memorial Page. If you don't have a copy of his obituary, you can obtain one by writing the Southwest Oklahoma Genealogical Society. Their website is http://www.sirinet.net/~lgarris/swogs/ Information at the website tells you about their research service.
RE: Robert McMills grave Hello Ellen: Thanks for the Find A Grave contact. Always glad to help and provide photos, many times it is not easy to get to "our" relatives grave sites, and Find A Grave is the next best thing!
In your message you indicated you are having trouble uploading information and grave photos. I will be glad to help, but first let me suggest you go to "your" home page on Find A Grave. On the left side of this page you will see the Find A Grave logo then "Actions" down a little way you will see "Logged in as: and just below that "Contributor Tools"click on that. Half way down that page you see Q&A, now click on Frequently Asked Questions.
Here is where your homework begins, take some time to read some of the areas you might be having trouble with and my guess is that most of your questions will be answered. If not let me know and I will do my best to walk you through a particular area.
Regards, David in Wichita Sedgwick County Keeper: Find A Grave
