Bio and Links
Bio Photo I accidentally came upon the Find A Grave website! I was amazed at how much new direction it has provided me with on my genealogy search. I started my genealogy research about 30 years ago just as a hobby, but it now has become more of a 2nd occupation for me. I love being able to help people with their research and at the same time it helps me with mine. I have been adding my family members info to FindAGrave in the hope that their story will endure. I try to ensure that the memorials I add are correct! That is one of my pet peeves! I want my memorials to be more than merely a beginning date and an end date in someone's life! I want to paint a broader picture of that person. Since this is a living memorial, I want it to be just that! To show that the person did live, have a family, etc. So, I try to only add a memorial once all the facts have been verified as accurate and when I have a short bio of the person. Sometimes, there is nothing more than a birth date and death date and that is all. If I make a mistake on a memorial, please contact me so that I can edit it and make it correct! I appreciate any and all help in this journey of mine. The people I enter on FindAGrave ARE my family members! I take good care of them, but if anyone has more info on my memorials, I welcome the addition of information. Just send a message on the SAC (Suggest A Correction) for their memorial.

Sorry, I do not have a copy of the photo. I have moved so cannot go back and get another. Good luck in you searching.

RE: Henry Besse - husband of Keturah Besse
Her daughter was buried right beside her. I'll try to get back there sometime. There are a lo of broken tombstones laying on the ground. It's a hard cemetery to walk because it has some many holes where the ground is caving in. It probably has old coal mines under the cemetery.

RE: Dennis Moran FAG# 23682751


You are very welcome to add William Dennis information on his memorial.

I almost always try to get them added to their memorial, but even though I send them, they don't always get added.

In this case the reason it may also be there is because, so far, I don't have any information on Dennis himself.

I could pick and choose and add scraps, but for me, this works, and anyone interested has it, without following links.

I could have added his daughter Thelma Moran Hamilton (1910 - 2010) also, but I didn't. ;-)

Hi Pat,
Thanks for the message, and nice to know we're related. I know of at least three different ways to spell our ancestor's first name... what a shame! I recognized the spelling you wrote as Keturah. Another variant has the "t" "u" flipped.
I'm sure since Katurah was not a common name, its spelling must have been difficult for many, including descendants! Thanks for responding to my message, and glad to know her memorial is in good hands with family.
Distantly related,
Christopher Donald Conger

Not sure what this means, would you please review and explain? I checked the memorial you gave by both name and numebr and I see no duplicates or errors.

Pat, thank you so much for the info on Thomas's burial site.
If you would like a transfer of Anna's memorial, I would be glad to do so, as I am not related. Let me know.
