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.

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 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

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."

Issac Howe
I found a grave headstone for Mary Howe but nothing for Issac. There is only one stone on that lot and the caretaker said it appeared there were others buried in that plot. If you want a picture of Mary's Please advise.

Doris Danehey
I found your memorial for Doris Danehey and her son James through I created a memorial for them last year. The grave is located in St. Francis cemetery in Walpole, Norfolk County, Mass. Doris was my mother's cousin. There are a number of family trees on that include her. The newspaper article you quote on her memorial had her name spelled incorrectly. The correct spelling is Dannahey, and her maiden name is Reinhardt. Her year of birth was 1925. My memorial has the links to her family members that have died. The memorial number is 132760893.

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.

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.

Schwegler family
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?
