Bio Photo Note relating to Fannin County, Texas cemeteries: they have a very nice website that may immediately offer the photo you are looking for. I am trying to get them to transfer these to FindAGrave website. Find it here:

Please have compassion for others and if you cannot reply in a positive way, then don't reply at all.

My husband lost his battle with esophageal cancer Nov. 2014, his memorial # 139923728.

We are all fighting our own private battles and don't need the negativity. If I don't thank you promptly, please don't be harsh. I always thank volunteers as soon as I can.

Please be kind in your messages to everyone on the site.

I will put in a blanket THANK YOU here for all who do my edits/corrections; I submit too many edits and corrections to open and reply to each one, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your time and effort in doing them.

I am a member of Ancestory.com and have had my DNA analysis completed, which connected me to many, many relatives, both close and distant cousins, and many I have made connections with. It also enabled me to find additional relatives on my tree because we are linked by our DNA. My personal heritage shows Great Britain and Ireland as my distinct lineages.

** From Wichita, Manhattan, and Wamego, Kansas, living in Dallas, TX area (Garland, Sachse, Caddo Mills, Celeste) since 1982. My paternal ancestors came from Ireland (Conley/Etchison/Loy/Grimes) and my maternal ancestors from Switzerland/Germany/England (Shoup/Brandon/Elledge/Boone) who migrated to Kentucky/Tennessee then to Kansas. Daniel Boone is connected in both my maternal Brandon (Edward 'Neddie') and also my paternal Conley line (Daniel & Edward's brother George W), and there is also a Lincoln connection I am sorting out because they all lived near to each other.

My husband's paternal ancestors (Siebert, Schmidt) were Russian Mennonites from Karolswalde region, Russia who migrated to Pawnee Rock, Kansas in 1875 to avoid religious persecution and brought with them the Turkey Red Winter Wheat to the U.S. His maternal ancestors immigrated from France (Breault, LeBlanc) to Kankakee, Illinois, then to Clyde-Clifton, Kansas, a French community.

Military connections: my father, a Purple Heart veteran, was a Marine, 2nd Div., Pacific, in WWII in the Special Services/Intelligence team and was at all the island battles;
his father was in Army in WWI;
my brother in law, Timothy Siebert, was in Army, Ft. Campbell, KY, 101st Airborne, Desert Storm and Desert Shield.

your request for photo George F Hartman
Good Evening

I see that you have requested a photo for George F Hartman, 64541762, in Groveville Cemetery in New Jersey. He may not have a stone. The book "From Locust Grove 1695 to Groveville 1980" contains a list of all the gravestones in this cemetery as of 1980. While it is always possible that a stone was missed by the author, this list does not include a stone for George F Hartman. I see by the local newspapers in 1928 that he was said to have been buried there.

Is this a relative of yours?

Hi. I received an edit to add a spouse {William Milburn Dye # 26888412} to Mrs. Dye but I can't find any connection between them. Do you have a source for this link? Thanks.

RE: Emma Greene
Hi - No names on back of stone. Cemetery records show Emma, Evelyn, Rosamond and Irene Greene are all buried here - 2 in grave 1 and 2 in grave 3. Not sure who, if anyone, is buried in grave 2. Posted photo to all four ladies and sent note to contributor. Thanks, Karen

RE: Grimes Find A Grave Memorial# 124198186
Hi,

There is a different database I use: http://archives.lacrosselibrary.org/genealogy/genealogy-database/#search-results

which does have one cemetery listing for an Emma Grimes at Oak Grove (not Catholic Cemetery).

I photograph whole sections of the cemeteries, so if I find a Grimes I can let you know.

Kind Regards,
Dawn

You sent me an edit to link her to parents. I have researched her for quite awhile and never came up with parents. Could you please send your sources for this edit? thanks so much.

Photo Requests in Rose Valley Cemetary, Cowley, Kansas
Hello, I drove out to Rose Valley Cemetary today to find & photograph your 5 requests. Unfortunately, I did not find any of them. This is a very small rural cemetary, with only approximately 280 internments. I walked carefully through it twice searching for your names. The problem I see is that it is also an old cemetary & many of the headstones are no longer visible due to the ground taking over. The older headstones are mostly situated in,family plot areas. I am sorry that your requests could not be filled. I am sure they are no longer visible without digging.

Conleys
Douglas is my great grandfather. How are you related to the Conleys? His father was William Conley and mother Eliza Ryan Conley. I live about 30 miles from a lot of my ancestors.

RE: Patricia Grimes
I talked with Harold and Phyllis' daughter and she pointed me in the right direction to find their stone. Turns out they are on the back of Harold's parents' stone, and I didn't look back there. Their daughter would like to contact you to compare Grimes family information. If you wouldn't mind visiting with her, you can e-mail me at mallard66434@yahoo.com, and I will get your e-mail address to her. Thanks for considering her request.

Patricia Grimes
I went to the Mount Hope Cemetery this evening again looking for the Grimes family. I think the Patricia you are looking for is the one that was born in 1933 and died in 2013. My thought on this is that the person who posted the other Patricia Grimes page must have made a mistake on the date of death.

As far as Phyllis and Harold Grimes, I am still not able to locate a stone for them. The next time I see their daughter I will ask her if they even have a stone, and if so, where is it, because it is not where the cemetery records says it should be.

If I am successful, I will post the pictures. Otherwise I will let you know that there is no stone.
