Genealogy has been one of my interests for over 15 years. Find A Grave is another way for me to link to family members and pass on family history. Like all genealogists, I spend much time "cemetery crawling" looking for that one missing stone! I will happily transfer anyone who is not my relative or those memorials that I manage for friends.
RE: Edward Clark Brown I have added your request. And yes I would be interested in any information you have on the Edward Clark Brown family. He married a Nancy Giddens who is in my line of Giddens. I would like to know if you have any pictures of them and if you could add them to their memorials. do you know where the parents of and grand parents are buried and are they on FIND A GRAVE so they can be linked.
Email me anything you would not mind sharing. My email is JonaKay24208@yahoo.com
William Baldwin Glenna - what I did was transfer some of your info to my memorial - the photos are much better on mine - if you delete yours I'll transfer mine to you. You had his birth year as 1849 though, which may come from 1900 census which has notoriously wrong years - I really think it's 1846, which is on his marker Dexter
We are working on standardizing all the location addresses for View Crest Abbey. In the process of doing this, we realize we had to change the format on the addresses we had just sent you. ... Please excuse our extra edits to your memorials. We hope this won't happen a lot!
Boy, that's one of the worst photos I've seen! Unfortunately I don't live near there or I would happily go take a new one. You may want to make a photo request for the memorial and see if someone can go get a better picture.
RE: Sarah Smith Glidden That is interesting! I followed a Dutch family who buried the father in the Netherlands and then mama and her 4 boys came to the states and settled in West Michigan. You had to be really brave to even cross the Atlantic 140 years ago and then come to a place with no infrastructure and carve out a farm, grow crops and make a society. We owe so much to those early pioneers. I can see where the farmers and blacksmiths were those needed to start a society and the lawyers and politicians couldn't make a buck with Indians living in Teepees along the rivers. One hot shot lawyer from NY came to my town and wanted to start a business, but found 6 Indian Teepees and decided to open a saloon instead.
