I love genealogy and am attempting to locate and link all of our family members and any others that I come across on findagrave.com. Also tryng to add photos, vital records, census records and any other family photos that someone might enjoy.
I would like to thank all the people that have put my family on findagrave and have been kind enough to transfer my family memorials to me for management. Corrections are welcomed. Please use the edit tab on the memorial for suggestions.
If you copy pictures, markers or obituaries, etc. from my memorials, it is much appreciated and expected to include my memorial and findagrave name and number as the source.
We are the chosen. In each family there is one (or more) who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes (hopefully) have at least one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves.
Fayette Manchester photo request Hi Barbara, I was excited to see a request that I thought I would be to fulfill. However, after posting all the photos I thought were correct, I found another Find a Grave for Fayette Jones Manchester with much more to back it up:
Find a Grave # 33556682, Fayette Jones Manchester.
In short, the marker to Fayette's south is that of James DeVoe, husband of Samantha Manchester, daughter of Fayette Jones Manchester.
So I removed the photographs and notes that I had posted.
Unfortunately there is no other known headstone for another Fayette Manchester in Lake County.
Sorry for the confusion and I hope you connect the dots in this case. I thought for sure there would be only ONE Fayette Manchester. Silly me.
