Just started serious genealogy last year (2006)as a result of a broken leg and lots of time on my hands. I have a long way to go! More than anything else, I love hiking the mountains in my area, kayaking and riding my bike. Researching families: Jayne, Vermilya, Plympton, Bogardus, Ohlmacher, Weeks & McCoy; and should you have the time, please place flowers.
RE: Standifer Cemetery Thank you for the info. We enjoy visiting cemeteries and take flags to place on any veterans graves we come across. We are about 10 miles from the Standifer Cemetery and it just seems like a good thing to do. We will definitely ask permission.
Standifer Cemetery in Chattanooga TN Hello Victoria, I am a Standifer Family descendent and would like to go the Standifer Cemetery but it is not easily accessible. I noticed your pictures and I was wondering how you were able to get to the cemetery to take the pictures. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Dianne Holmes Skramstad
John Plympton and wife Jane Hi there. Interesting about John Plympton's death! These two people were my 8th great grandparents. Wasn't sure if you meant these two were your 8th gg or Levy Chase was... Their son Peter, married to Mary Mundan, is my line. Just wanted to touch base with you and tell you I appreciated your write-up and your service to our country! A "maybe" long lost Nebraska cousin...

SD Gravestones copyright on photos This is at the home page of SD gravestones: "All photos on this site are COPYRIGHTED and may NOT be used on other websites without permission of www.southdakotagravestones.org or the original photographer."
I believe you violated this copyright by uploading the photo to Mr. Schrader's memorial. Again, I always ask Brad Plek, SD Gravestones Coordinator, for the photos that he takes. He has spent a great deal of time taking photos throughout parts of SD, and I respect his right to not allow use of these photos.
If I were you, I would take that photo down (any any others you might have added in a similar fashion) and provide a photo request. When the request pops up, I insert a note for Brad to place his photo out there so that others will not be inclined to make a trip for nothing.
RE: 113422748 Brad Plek, who runs SD Gravestones owns the rights to the site and photos. I have always asked him to add the photos at F/G if he took them, so that he gets photo credit as a Findagrave contributor.
A personal story here. One of my great uncles, Lucien Farmer, was born in KY; after the civil war, he moved to MO, became a teacher. His wife (Florence)'s family lived in Ark and when she had their children, she returned to Ark to be with her family for the births. When their 4th child was to be born, he traveled from MO to be with her. He died shortly after the baby's birth. Lucien was buried in Ark. I looked for ages for his burial in MO because that was his home. After his death, his wife remarried, moved to TX with husband #2. H#2 died; he was buried in TX with his wife#1. When Florence died, her body was sent back to Ark to be buried with Lucien. Again, in looking for this family, I looked for years for them in MO. There was never anything that indicated otherwise.
Point being, one can never be sure where, why bodies are not buried where they last lived/died.
It could be other family members wanted your person back with othr family members, not left in CA by himself.
You're welcome about replying. I'm glad I was able to provide that link.
Please see this link at South Dakota Gravestones: http://southdakotagravestones.org/view.php?id=151889, where a photo of his gravestone has been documented. I have requested this photo be uploaded to Mr. Schrader's memorial.
