I started doing genealogy with my mother a few years before she passed away. I took over her substantial database and have been adding to it ever since. I found Find-a-Grave a few years ago (2007) when I added her memorial, but I only started really using it in 2010.
It's such a great tool for a genealogist, and such a great concept in general...strangers helping one another find the graves of their loved ones all over the world. I'm happy to be a part of it.
RE: Thank you! I wondered that as well. I have seen it both ways.....some buried with their second husband and others with their first. My grandmother was married twice. She was buried between both husbands and had the second husbands name on her stone. But, they all had separate stones. I think I would put her name as the only she is buried under and add the second husband to her memorial. That way anyone who looks at her second husbands memorial will see hers as well. I work in Wilmington and was on call this weekend. So I have decided to work on this cemetery during my down time. It is a very large cemetery!! I think I was in section 5 circle. At some point I want to chat with the grounds keeper to understand the lay out better. Have a wonderful Labor Day and take care! Beth Ann
RE: Thank you! So glad to do it. It was my first time to volunteer for taking pictures. My husband and I did it and we even found another name on the list. That made us happy. I did find another grave next to Everett's. It was a Theodore George I believe, but I did not see the grave listed for the cemetery even though the grave was right there. I have the picture if you need it. So glad we could help.
I made the connections for Corwin's parents. Corwin and his wife's memorials were just volunteer memorials ... if you are interested in a transfer, please feel free to ask. The photograph of them is very nice.
Rees Family St. Joseph John, I will be headed to St. Josephs this weekend, depending on the weather, and will try to find your Rees family and take pictures. I have a question though. According to St. Joseph's database there are three more Rees graves..apparently triplets born to Joseph and Jennie and lived one day. If there are stones would you like a picture? I do not know if they belong to your Jospeh and Genevieve. Let me know. Katie
