I've seen old cemeteries with headstones sunken so far into the ground I couldn't even see the name at the top of the stone. I've see illegible weathered headstones and headstones damaged by careless lawn care or vandalism. I've read about entire cemeteries that are physically lost and gone forever. If we're lucky, someone long ago made a record of the cemetery,but we aren't always that lucky. My first surname search on this site brought up 6 listings nationwide. Six. I knew there were at least 20 headstones with that surname in one cemetery back home. This is why I do what I do. I receive numerous requests for links, adds, corrections, additional genealogy info, etc. The information I have listed in the memorial came from the headstone, in the cemetery. Definitely let me know if there's a mistake on the memorial information. If you want the person's genealogy information on the memorial, please submit a SAC and request transfer of the memorial. I'm not related to 99.9% of the memorials I manage. If you know enough info to send a SAC with info I can't see/don't have time to verify - you may find that memorial transferred to you. Not because I don't care, but rather I don't have the time to research each of the 8,000+ memorials I manage. If you want me to transfer a memorial please be sure you're logged in before submitting your SAC - otherwise I don't have your member # for the transfer. Please keep in mind I don't check for requests daily - sometimes even weekly. This doesn't mean that I'm not active in FaG or ignoring your requests. It just means that I'm a little busy at the moment. By all means submit another request if you think I missed you. I'll get to it. Have a great day!
I just wanted to let you know that I suggested an edit for her name. I filled in her Maiden name, and corrected her first name. Unfortunately, I realize what the stone says..but it's wrong. Emiline Tracey Stansbury was my 4th Great Grand Aunt, daughter of Owen Tracey and Ann Stiffler Cooper Tracey.
Again, I realize what was carved in the stone, but looking back at the Census records, her name is Emiline.
Wanted you to know I am doing a LOT of corrections/additions to the memorials in this cemetery. I have the master cemetery records for the Church and going plot by plot comparing. I also have a good history of the church and would like to add bios to the founding/early members.
Sad note - the church is being closed (organized in 1837) and the future of the building & cemetery is uncertain.
James B Griffith # 32199949 I have previously requested that you remove my grandfather's "memorial" as he is not buried here. Also, another relative requested the same thing. My grandfather is buried in Richmond VA, beside my grandmother.
Memorial # 31400327 for Elisabeth Ensor Hi, There's a headstone next to this one which is unreadable. Do you have a record for this, or do you know of one? I'm searching for Eleanor Wells Ensor, married to Nicholas Ensor in 1821. Thanks!
Date correction I submitted a correction for Hannah engle # 31157547 It looks like the head stone has the year 1883, but the entry has 1853. Hannah is in the 1880 census along with daughter Susanna Ball Engle Standiford mentioned on her memorial. Thank you Debbie
RE: Copley Stones The Shewbridge Family lived in Miladys Manor and if you are near any known churches/cemeteries in that area I would greatly appreciate your kindness again. There were Episcopal or Ch. of England. Wife maiden name was Mary Norris. Many many thanks
