I've been doing genealogy for a long time and enjoy it very much. |
I am thankful for this sight because I've found photos of graves of my family and my husband's family that I might not been able to see.
Thank you for everyone's hard work on this site.
Most of my information comes from obituaries I have collected throughout my research or find online.
I will transfer those who are not family, just ask. I like family to be with family when possible.
I started putting where I found obituaries, so people can search for the complete obituary and information.
To One in Sorrow
Let me come in
where you are weeping friend,
And let me take your hand.
I, who have known a sorrow
such as yours,
Let me come in —
I would be very still beside you
in your grief;
I would not bid you
cease your weeping, friend,
Tears bring relief. Let me come in —
and hold your hand,
For I have known a sorrow
such as yours,
—Grace Noll Crowell
There is hardly anything in the world
that some man cannot make a little worse
and sell a little cheaper,
and the people who consider price
only are this man's lawful prey.
"Earth Has No Sorrow That Heaven Can Not Heal."
Found on headstone in Friends Cemetery, Bentown, McLean County, Illinois
"Our family chain is broken
And nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again"
"Not lost blest thought, but gone before,
Where we shall meet, to part no more."
Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT."
ABOUT READING ILLEGIBLE HEADSTONES- from MOCAVO Genealogy Newsletter
The two best friends you have for reading gravestones are water, and a reflective surface, such as a mirror. I routinely bring a couple of bottles of water in my bag when I visit a cemetery. often the simple act of putting some water on the stone makes some of the etched words easier to read. I’ve even brought out letters and numbers that were completely illegible.
A mirror or other highly reflective surface works well also. This tool is best used on a bright, sunny day. Use the mirror to reflect light across the face of the stone. The shadows it creates may illuminated the illegible inscription. I’ve also used photographer’s reflectors to achieve the same effect. They are flexible and as they are not made of glass, there is no risk or dangerous breakage if you drop them. You can get them inexpensively through photo supply stores or Amazon
Those we love don't go away, They walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear
What We Keep In Memory Is Ours Forever
Sometimes I leave flowers for those I come across who have no flowers. This doesn't mean I am related - just means everyone should be remembered.
Thanks to all the volunteer photo takers for posting photos I have requested. I am very grateful for them taking their time in getting and posting. I sometimes don't thank them personally, but thank them for getting something I have asked for.
Don't view my emails everyday, to thank them faithfully. But I appreciate their dedication in getting them.
PLEASE NOTE: Sometime I edit my corrections, but when finished, when no change is sent in a message, it's usually a COMPUTER MALFUNCTION that sends NO CHANGE message to people wanting changes. SORRY. CAN'T HELP THIS COMPUTER'S MIND.

|vicki (dennison) dennis||RE: Mollie Milam|
I don't have a lot of information about the Milam family, I know she was married to Ernest Milam, in Leitchfield Ky, I did research on my dad's side. She was a Beville, married to Benjamin Beville. She had a son, Lonnie Gaither, and that was also her maiden name. That's all I know about her, she passed away in 1950. I do remember Ernest when I was a child. He lived with my Uncle Charlie Dennison. I know he was blind then, that's all I can tell you right now, but I'll ask some of my cousins about him. Hope that helps some
|Gary Ayers||RE: James V. Milam|
You are most welcome. Glad To help.
|Doris Christensen||RE: Polser Family|
I don't know if we are talking about the same Herman Polser or not. The one in my family tree was born Aug., 1910 in IA to Norman & Elva Polser and died in McLean Co, IL in Aug., 1983. I have no other information for him as for spouses, etc.
Sorry, probably not much help to you, wish I could! Good Luck
|Mark Butler||RE: Martha Miller|

Glad I was able to match them up. Thomas Brettell
|Jim Keller||RE: James M. Martin|
No - just a close friend through church/Promisekeepers. I helped Jim's widow, Ruth, prepare for Jim's memorial service and created a memorial video using the photos posted to his Find A Grave.com page. Jim's living son, Geoff Martin, also live in Overland Park, KS and works at Sprint.
