Bio Photo "We actually don't fear death. We fear that no one will notice our absence, that we will disappear without a trace". (unknown)
People come to Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. People volunteer on Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. Sadly, some are in a contest to see how many memorial pages they can put in, mistakes and all, and they hold tight to those pages they've created even if they aren't related to them at all…for them it's all about the numbers.
My friend, Melinda Fowler, and I started doing this for our own families and then it quickly became something bigger…it was about other people's families. We have gotten such satisfaction out of fulfilling requests and everyone is so grateful. But it is "we" who are grateful for the opportunity to honor your relatives. We're not in this for the count, but for the gratification in connecting relatives and for recognizing the need to say "I WAS HERE".
p.s. I take a lot of random pictures in the Danbury, CT and Westchester County, New York area. If I should happen to run into your family and you would like to take ownership, by all means let me know and it's done. Families should stay together!

Please delete photo
Hello Linda - I tried to send you a private message but your email doesn't seem to work anymore. Could I ask that you please delete the picture you posted of my parents gravestone? We did not ask you to do this, it would have been nice if you had asked us before posting it as I know they would not want it.
Thank you!

Mildred Moody Fenno Roth Pascuzzi
Please link Adam A. Roth (131184021) to Mildred L. Moody Fenno Pascuzzi (113350275)

Adam was Mildred's 2nd husband. He also served a term as the mayor of Danbury.

They were my neighbors. I knew them very well along with Mildred's daughter Margie and Margie's husband Burton and their daughters Linda Louise Fancher Bocaccio and Karen Elizabeth Fancher Bedient.
Note: No one that I know of has info re: Marjorie's father, Mr. Fenno. Mildred never spoke of him.

Thank you so very much.

Samuel George Cornish photographs
I thank you for taking the pictures of Samuel George Cornish & his wife. You have added the picture to the wrong wife however. His first wife Mary A. Dykeman Cornish died in 1902. The second Mary Eliza Johnson Cornish died in 1940. If you could move the pic from Mary Eliza to Mary A. I have created a memorial for her. I am still looking for the Mary who died in 1940. Much appreciation, Patrick

Anna Rosser Kellogg
Hi Linda,

Anna (Rosser) Kellogg's middle initial was 'M'-- Mary.
If you look closely at the tombstone I think you will see that
the 'P' is actually an 'R' ( for Rosser ) with the bottom portion
of the 'R' worn away. This makes it look like a 'P'.

So I believe it really should be "Anna R. Kellogg "

RE: doris butler and family
I always do both sides. 😀. Hopefully someone discovers a relative they didn't know about.
