Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my own family and volunteering for the Logan County Genealogical and Historical Society now for the past few years. I love wandering through cemeteries and will be willing to take photos of headstones in my town (or within 20 mi. or so) to help other researchers.


PLEASE ASK ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO TRANSFER A FRIEND OR RELATIVE. I ALMOST NEVER HAVE ANY PROBLEM DOING THIS!

The following poem, which I wrote, has gotten a lot of attention lately from those wishing to share it with others. Please know that I would be honored if you did. You can use my name as author if you like.

THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER


Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone


***PLEASE NOTE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS!!!! THANK YOU!!***

Find-a-Grave Friends: Due to several circumstances, I have been delayed at fulfilling transfer memorials and corrections/connections. I plan to begin working on these today to complete these as requested. Thank you all for your patience -- you have not been forgotten -- and although I won't be notifying you individually that the corrections are made, please rest assured that they will be done ASAP. I appreciate your patience! -- Jan
**************************************************

**************************************************ACCIDENTS SUCH AS DUPES HAPPEN, BUT *PLEASE* MAKE SURE YOU CHECK FOR AN EXISTING MEMORIAL FIRST BEFORE CREATING A NEW ONE! I HAVE HAD TO DELETE A NUMBER OF MY ORIGINAL MEMORIALS BECAUSE OF DUPES THAT WERE CREATED WITH MORE INFO OR PICS AT A LATER DATE. AS I HAVE STATED IN THE PAST, I WILL ALMOST ALWAYS TRANSFER MEMORIALS IF REQUESTED BUT PLEASE, AS A COURTESY, LOOK FOR AN ORIGINAL BEFORE DUPLICATING. THANKS!

Floy Davis
Were Floy and William twins?
I am wondering because my grandpa Kenneth Lee Davis has Jerry Davis as a father and according to the 1930 census, Floy Davis was his mother.
Do I have the right Floy David?

Lance and Miller
Hello, Jan,

Do you by chance have any Lance or Miller people ancestors in Cannon Co., TN?

There are several Lance members buried in Ivy Bluff Cemetery, Warren Co., TN if you have Lances in TN. The grandpapa of them all was James Jasper Lance from S. Carolina.

Josephine Hoblit Shores
Jan, I saw your name on Josephine's Memorial Page.
Are you related to the Hoblit family??

My grandfather's half sister Cynthia Vance lived with Mary & Green Hoblit in Franklin County Illinois for a while according to the 1880 franklin County Ill. census. When Dr. Hoblit died I believe Mary must have moved to Logan County Ill. where she is buried. I believe Cynthia must have moved with Mary. Cynthia lived in that part of Ill. She lived with a woman & some of her daughters with the last name of Rowley in Bloomington Ill.

I know Dr. Hoblit lived in Franklin County Ill & is buried in the ODD Fellows & Masonic cemetery there in Benton Ill. I set him up a Memorial Page on Find A Grave & Susan attached a picture of his headstone to it. I am in the process of attaching Dr. Hoblit's name to his wife's Memorial Page.


I am looking for any additional info you have on Dr. Hoblit & a picture of him if there is one available.

That was so nice for Dr. Green & Mrs. Green to
take in a little girl of 12 years old & care for her until she reached the age where she could care for herself.

Cynthia eventually married & moved to Mo. & raised a family & is buried there.

If you have or know how I can get a picture of Dr. & Mary Green & any other information I would really love to have it.

Thank you for your help. My email address is afh1942@gmail.com Thanks again Alice Hurst

Same name and dates of birth/death
Jessie Burnett in Oneida and Cincinnati are the same person, Sr. really is JR., I inadvertently hit Sr. instead of Jr. it is being corrected. Jessie is my beloved Grandfather, he is buried in Cincinnati, his marker in Oneida was updated with his death info. I feel this information should only be created by family, not an outsider, you don't have all the information.

Thanks,

Lee Burnett

Fietsam, Carl L.
It looks like we have two Find a Graves for this person - both being born and died on the same date. How do we go about fixing this problem. Thanks.
