Bio and Links
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!

RE: Marjorie
You caught me. Not a spell check, just a search.

Davy/Wooster Cemetery
I got started with Wooster because I found an ancestor there. While doing research on him, I found the Hale Collection entries and just got carried away. If you could just post your photos that would be great. I'm not connected in any way to the ones I have posted. My own ancestor was already posted and photographed. I also post and photograph cemeteries where I live. Find A Grave keeps me busy along with genealogy research on my family.

That's quite a coincidence! I've been posting a lot of memorials at Wooster with information taken from the Hale Collection. Since I live in California, I was hoping that someone local would add photos. Thank you for taking the time to add photos to the Davy memorials.

RE: Schoenbergs in Kensico
Oh no it's fine. And you are exactly right, that pic was totally the essence of who he was

RE: Schoenbergs in Kensico
No worries! These are my grandparents and I just happened to see the record on (the picture of my grandfather that you have posted here is mine from my tree there!). Never noticed it posted here in the past

RE: William Fanton
Many, many thanks, Linda, for going beyond the expected. William & his wife, Isabella Agnes Annable Fanton, had an interesting life. Isabellaʻs obit was saved by my great grandmother and it told how her husband was stationed at Fort Assiniboine and she was the first white woman to cross the Lonesome Prairie, Montana... she was even escorted on one trip by Sitting Bull and his warriors! Then they lived in Deadwood in its wildest days as a mining camp... Isabella is my 2nd great grand aunt... what a life!!!!

Mahalo hou....
