Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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,
can understand.
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,
And understand.

—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.

—John Ruskin


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.
THANK YOU.

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.

RE: Wm. Smalley
GINA, Thanks for your comment concerning the Smalley family. I have tried to arrange my contribution entries in a manner that one can follow (by clicking on family links) the family members throughout. Most of the photos that I use are from my own camera or from family photo album of my parents. The photo of this William L Smalley is cropped from a group photo showing the four sons of James L. and Irene Waite Smalley. So if you want to see the four brothers, you can see it in James L. Smalley memorial or edwin Forrest Smalley memorial.

By all means, please feel free to add my info into your family tree. FRH P.S. we can use our email addresses to comment concerning non-pulic topics.
