Please contact me if we have a connection or if there is a correction that needs to be made. When adding photos and/or creating memorials I research the person so I may be able to link them to family and be as accurate as possible. Please realize that we are all human and mistakes are made. So please let me know if there is something I should add/change.
Also, I believe that family should be with family, if possible. I have no problem with transferring out of Find a Grave guidelines to family. Please, just simply send me a request and let me know your relation.
Feel free to use any photos I have taken for your own personal genealogy research. It would be nice if you would credit me with the photo.
A few poems that I enjoy:
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
STRANGERS IN THE BOX
By: Pamela A Harazim
Come, look with me inside this drawer,
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, and serene.
I wish I knew the people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories,
Are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like,
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time,
To tell, who, what, where, and when,
These faces of my heritage,
Would come to life again.
Could this become the fate,
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories,
Someday to be passed away?
Take time to save your stories,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours,
Could be strangers in the box.

|Genealogy Lover||James Riley revisited|
when I get home I will contact you again so maybe we can work together to get all of this straightened out!
I have seen several problems in the two cemeteries I mentioned but have not yet set aside the time to go through them. But it looks like this is a good time to do it! Looking forward to your input!
|Genealogy Lover||RE: James Riley, again|
I am out and about. It's difficult to do some looking on my phone but when I get home I will look this one up that you mentioned and get back with you when I know more. Thank you for all your help. The Paris – Riley cemetery and the Riley cemetery are kind of overlapping and I have been working to get them straightened out.
|Genealogy Lover||James Riley, again|
Since I have straightened this memorial out, I will need to decline the edit request to remove parents since, given the RIGHT date, he is their son. Just know I appreciate your help!
|Genealogy Lover||James Riley|
Thank you for catching my error! It took me a bit to see what had happened. There are two James Riley names in the county transcription book. I had picked up the wrong date for this one which made it impossible for him to be the son of Joseph and Caroline Riley. Plus when reviewing my source, I realized that I had placed him in the Parris-Riley Cem and not the Riley Cem where he should be. I have made the necessary correction to reflect the right death date, and the right cemetery (as per the county cemetery book). With the right date, this one IS the son of Joseph and Caroline.
Thank you for helping me get this straightened out!

|Mark W. Neice||RE: RE; Pvt. Christopher O. Yocum|
Thank you. Yes, I'd like to have a copy of his death certificate.
|Mark W. Neice||RE; Pvt. Christopher O. Yocum|
Where did you get his date of death from? It contradicts my date.
Also, do you know who his parents are?
|A Friend||Re: Elizabeth Frump|
Hi, I did pull up and add Elizabeth Frump's obituary to her memorial since the date on the stone was wrong.
Also noticed that your Morris side ties into big Jesse and little Jesse Morris buried in New Harmony. I knew them both.

Billie - am having trouble with my internet today and tried to send you a note via the edit key. I just fixed birth date and linked baby Albert to his parents. Thought you might want to add to his bio:
Stillborn - Vigo County Birth Record Book CH-34, page 46
Was just in town and obtained records that I've researched. Thanks and have a good day! Dott
