Each time I come upon a grave record in my genealogy,I stop and check to see if it is entered. Each time I pass or visit a cemetery,I take pictures and information and enter them if they are not on,in Hope all of you do the we all get a lot from this web site.

RE: Contributor
I just wanted to take a moment to offer my compliments on your dedication and expertise to help make Find-A-Grave the success it has become.
I appreciate the time and effort you expended on your generous contributions.

To my way of thinking, all researchers and contributors should consider you as a good role model.

Best Wishes.

RE: Aven
As I'm not related to this family, I've not any further information other than as posted on his Memorial.

I did attempt to find primary sources verifying the names of his parents. His parents are purported to be:
F. C./ Ferman/ Ferna/Ferney/Ferny Cheasel Aven and Elizabeth A. J. Young.

If not already looked at, you may like to check the following census, as it appears to be he enumerated as a son:
1850 U.S. . Census, Twiggs Co. GA., Division #84, HH#328

Also, I did find a brief mention of the death of J. W. AVEN, of Brenham, Washington Co. TX., the same residence of William Monroe Aven, and who may be a brother, as follows:

The Brenham Banner states that J. W. Aven died on the fifteenth instant, aged 25.
Source: Weekly Democratic Statesman, Austin, Texas, Thursday, November 26, 1874; Pg. 2, Column 6

I would like to inquire if you would be interested in my transferring the two AVEN Memorials I've posted to you. I would be happy to do so.

Best Wishes.

RE: Grave
Thanks for all the work you do. I forgot to mention that his headstone is way below ground level. Someone would have to dig down in front of the stone to read it all.

No doubt the ground in that area was built up after the burial.

Mr. Roberts and family lived for some time near Short Creek, Etowah County, Alabama after moving from Georgia.

Best of luck to you,

RE: Grave
Hi Gerry,

I don't mind if someone wants to use my photos as long as they don't take credit for them. I've driven hundreds of miles and stayed in motel rooms, so I could photograph cemeteries of interest. The next thing I see is how they get all over the internet with someone else's name on them.

If I can help you, just let me know and I'll see what I can do.

I'm pretty sure, John F. Roberts is in my family, too. As you will see, I've done extensive work on the info for this family.

Best of luck to you,
