You have my permission to use any headstone photo I have posted, as you wish.|
IF I HAVE CREATED A MEMORIAL OR LEFT FLOWERS AT ONE, THAT DOES NOT MEAN I KNEW THAT PERSON.
If you are responding to me because of an "edit" I sent to you or a memorial I made, PLEASE include the memorial number or the URL to that page. A simple mention of their name is not enough.
I will gladly make changes or corrections, no matter how small, if you request them. PLEASE do this by clicking on "edit" at the upper-right corner of the memorial, use their form to notify me by email. If this is your loved one, I would prefer transferring management to you. Just ask, same process.
I'm always happy to transfer to any family member. I'll never understand the reluctance of some contributors to let go of the memorials of strangers simply because they've created them. That's why we do it isn't it? For their family to find them. That's why I do it.
I have always enjoyed visiting cemeteries, especially the older, historical sections, long before I knew any of the "residents"... I am a regular visitor to Lower Lake Cemetery as it is nearest to me and I have friends and family there.
I began making entries at Find a Grave, first with ancestor's info, my parents in Hayward, then Lower Lake Cemetery because I have lived here for so long, I knew or know of many of the "residents." I knew many of these people personally and/or their families. I am not related to any of them directly. Two sets of in-laws, including my husband, many friends, high-school teachers and classmates, the doctor that delivered my son, etc., etc. My son has eight grandparents in this cemetery counting the greats- and steps-. My parents are in a Hayward cemetery because they made their own pre-need arrangements. If they were here, I would take care of them too. Thanks to Find A Grave I am able to "visit" them, add virtual flowers and notes, gather them and their families into virtual cemeteries I made for that purpose, and so on. I love that we can request headstone photos for those distant graves and get them! Usually. I DON'T LOVE THE FUSS ABOUT COPYRIGHT ISSUES THAT OCCUR OCCASIONALLY.
Every time I start to work on my family tree, I get side-tracked in the local cemetery. Since the beginning of 2011, I have been systematically photographing all the tombstones there and making memorials here. I REPEAT, FEEL FREE TO USE ANY HEADSTONE PHOTOS I HAVE ADDED AS YOU WISH!
I am always researching AKRIDGE and HAVENHILL/HEAVENHILL/HIMMELBERGER family trees... when I'm not getting lost in my neighboring cemetery.

|Ann Delacruz||Eliza Wilson Akridge|
I am trying to locate family members of mine. On my mothers side my great grandfather is buried at the Akridge cemtary in Mitchell county. His name is John Jasper Wilson. Having trouble locating any of his siblings not totally sure of who exactly they are. I noticed an Eliza Wilson Akridge buried right near him an was wondering if she might be related to him. Do you have any info on this Eliza Wilson Akridge? I don't believe she is a sister of John Jasper. I think John Jasper's father is Henry Alfred Wilson and mother was Caroline Hurst. Thanks for any help you can give. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank You for catching my mistake, it is appreciated

Judy: Good news. Wanted to let you know the headstone of Mary Love Dillard Snow at Lower Lake was found and photographed for F/G. You transferred the memorial to me (thanks again for that, btw!). The person who found it wrote that she searched the cemetery 2 different times w/ no success, but then came upon it by accident when searching for other names and markers. Am so pleased, and since you created the memorial, thought you might like to be in the loop too. (-: All best. -ajf

Hello, Thanks for creating this memorial. I used some of your info for her daughter, Julia Fryrear Cash, (concerning Uncle Wm being founder of Heavenhill Distilleries), then went to Wikipedia to look up info on Heaven hill Distilleries.
I found info on Jim Beam and five original investors, Shapiro brothers etc. but nothing about Wm Heavenhill.
Please help me with verification of this info. Thanks. BTW, I am from the area! Diane
|sandra hanson||RE: Where did you go?|
I am on facebook. I found the Heavenhill/Havenhill FB page and clicked on join but it still comes up pending. How long does it take? You may friend me, look for Sandy Cranston Hanson.
|sandra hanson||RE: Too Late|
In Feb 2012 I had mentioned that Valentine Himmelberger was my 5th great grandfather. You wrote 2013 that there was a Family Group of Heavenhill/Havenhills. That we were obviously cousins since we share the same ancestor.And that to join I would have to friend someone. Sandy
