"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."|
Leonard Nimoy 1931 - 2015

Genealogy, begins as an interest, becomes a hobby, continues as an avocation and in the last stages, is an incurable disease.
"So…I was born; I blinked; and it was over. No buildings named after me; no monuments erected in my honor."
Emily DeBrayda Phillips, from her inspiring, self-written obituary
Find A Grave Memorial# 144465033
The only thing you absolutely have to know is the location of the library.
We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted. Each of us contains within ... this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations, sacred memories, and future promises.
Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life.
Any photos, bios and or other information that I have entered is avaialble for free use - no paid only websites. I would perfer that credit is given, but I put those materials and images here to be both saved for the future and to be used.
The web site TimeandDate.com offers date calculations for many of those little genealogical problems and more.
SO much of what is placed on Find A Grave is searchable, but in order to assist others in their research, I also use GenDisasters.com.
Disasters strike us all, and it helps to put family moves into context when they abruptly move, relocate or - frankly - just disappear!
I also note to Find A Grave when I can find an applicable memorial.
Please take a look, it's an interesting site.
In the eastern United States you can often "discover" old cemeteries by the daffodils.
Daffodils are not a feast for deer, they multiply and spread on their own and were often the flower of choice to plant at gravesites.
And I love the sunny, bright daffodil, reminding me the long winter will soon be over and I can get out again to seek and document ancestors - both my own and for others living too distant to be there in person.
If I have "planted" a daffodil on a memorial, it is one which I have directly touched or made an addition.
My Find A Grave 'anniversary' date is 12 June 2007
"Remember me in the family tree, my name, my days, my strife; then I'll ride upon the wings of time and live an endless life."

|Geraldine Barnett||RE: Charles Thomas|
I am guessing they were in an orphanage because the mother died first, no one to care for the children while the father worked and he died shortly after so they were truly orphans. Who might be able to afford taking in 5 more kids?? It was a means of providing and keeping them together if no one would take responsibility for their upbringing. geraldine

Corbin Times Times Tribune- Corbin Ky, Friday September 1977 Fire Kills Children
Two children are dead as a result of a fire early this morning in a London apartment occupied by a mother and her three children.
According to Wilson Rawlings, assistant fire chief, the blaze started at approximatly 12:01 this morning in the home of Marietta Bowling, East 6 th Hill street.
Ed Bowling Laurel County Coroner, released the names of the two children who died of asphyxiation as a result of smoke inhalation. Dead are Sammy Hafley approximately, 13 months old, and Donnie Bowling age 8.
According to Rawlings, the cause of the fire is unknown and the apartment was blazing when the two fire trucks and rescue unit arrived at the scene.
Rawlings said the two children who died were sleeping in the front part of the apartment and the mother and another child, David were asleep in the rear of the apartment.
Rawlings said the blaze prevented the mother from reaching her children and she was forced to escape through a rear entrance with David.
Rawlings said the cause of the fire is under investigation, but arson is not suspected as the cause of the fire.
Rawlings said that while the apartment is gutted the appartment building did not suffer extensive damage.
|Linda Edmonds||RE: Martha Keen and Martha Johnson|
Grandfather: Hiram "Newton" Johnson.
Henry F. Johnson & Martha "Caroline" Cornett.
Hiram B. Johnson & Martha "Patsy" Keen.
Joseph Johnson & Phoebe Young.
I suspect that many researchers have certain facts intermixed between my Hiram and Rev. Hiram.
Thank you for all your work on Victor "vic" Schwegler family! Your work has been very helpful with filling in information I did not have.
Family records say that Victor and his first wife Mary had a daughter that should be buried with them. Her name is Mary Schwegler born 26 Jan 1862 and died 16 Feb 1866 of typhoid fever like her mother and brothers. Have you found any records for her?

|P Renee T||RE: McDaniel Cem|
Good morning there.
I will be in here for a little while today.
Thanks for all the info I love getting it.
This couple is in McDaniel Cem.
Lucy Lincks Johnson 7513820
R. Boyd Johnson 7513819
Moms uncle William Ray (Bill) took her to this cemetery back a few years before he died, And he told her where all the Johnson, Bowlings and the Roark bunch over there was resting.
Mom can remember the stones but not what her uncle bill told her about them, So I have to piece it all together again.
From what Mom says the Johnson and Bowlings tie real close to her grand parents in this McDaniel Cemetery.
I am going to try my best to get moms pictures back in the McDaniel Cem over the next few days.
and of course send edits and corrections as I go a long.
This week alone over 50 people have been fixed from the edits mom and I have sent out over a 3 month's time span.
|P Renee T||7483541|
Any idea why they droped the longer name ?
I went and looked at that line It goes places for sure.
Any info that is not in here I would love to have.
E mail would be great.
My new home phone will be in next week, So I can get back in here more often
