Bio and Links
Bio Photo (Desperately hoping someone, anyone, will create a new website called FIND AN OBIT. This is not the place for adding someone who passed away yesterday especially when often there's no cemetery or disposition even mentioned. Many times family would like to add their own loved ones & resent having to wait for a transfer, if they even receive one. Hats off to those Find A Gravers who dig out the old obituaries & add them to memorials. That's what makes this site so helpful for genealogy purposes. Adding this week's death total is just morbid & ghoulish, especially when three people add the same person on the same day. Who was first? Numbers shouldn't be the goal here! Just my opinion)

My interests are genealogy & history, especially military history~God Bless our veterans & active duty servicemen & women!

I really enjoy visiting cemeteries searching for ancestors & always try to take some other grave photos while there. It's fascinating to read some of the older inscriptions & see the style & design that went into the older monuments.

Find A Grave is the best site on the web & has helped me a lot. It's enabled me to find family members who moved away years ago & some that I thought I'd never find.

We've all lost loved ones, wonderful people we'll never forget. This site gives us an opportunity to remember them with photographs, obituaries, family stories & monument photos. It's always a great feeling when someone finds a family member that they'd been unable to locate. I'm sure that's what makes this site so very popular!

I'm always happy to transfer family members or make corrections or additions! I'll gladly remove a memorial, also, if requested. Feel free to use any of the memorial photos I've posted for your family tree, Ancestry.com, etc.!

The other side of the highway
Hello, my name is Jennifer. I live on the other side of the highway next to Blades Rd. Many times I have visited the graves that are in the forest behind my house, but I can not find any records of the names that are inscribed on the tombstones at all. One of the graves is down a nature trail to the right just a little ways into the woods and the name on it is Cordelia S. Jones, wife of Thomas Jones. She was born May 1835 and died in May 1873. It says something about "Our Mother" in the paragraph at the bottom, but it is so old I can't really read it without doing a rubbing. At the foot stone the is " D. S. J.". There is also a decorative iron fence around her entire grave. I don't know if she was a relation to the Jones' graves that are in Beth Eden cemetary or not. The other graves are back in the woods kinda veering off from Blades Rd, but off to the left through the trees. There are 3 of them, and the names are Capt. John Callahan, David Callahan who I guess is his son but that one is really hard to read to, and Louisa Callahan who is the wife and mother. I have not yet been to the library or the courthouse, but I guess that is the next step. It just seems like they have been forgotten.

Hi,
I was fulfilling photo requests at Workmans' cir. I am not a relative of the Tilles, but I was wondering if you could confirm the relationship for Michael Tilles. I am only curious because one of the requests was for Ida Tilles and there is a Michael of her stone that I believe was her husband. I am sending this to you and the creator of the other memorial too. Thanks a bunch

LOUISE VIOLA DONALDSON HEIKKINEN
DEE, THIS IS PROBABLY AN UNUSUAL REQUEST FOR YOU BUT I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE IT A TRY. I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING LOUISE DONALDSON'S FINAL RESTING PLACE, SINCE IT SEEMED TO BE INCORRECT IN FIND A GRAVE AS WELL AS ANCESTRY.COM. I LOCATED HER GRAVE AT OAK LAWN CEMETERY, ALONG WITH HER HUSBAND'S(REINO HEIKKINEN). I NOTICED THERE WERE 70 UNANSWERED REQUESTS FOR PHOTOS AND ALSO NOTICED THAT YOU HAD A MEMORIAL FOR A JOHN HEIKKINEN AS WELL AS A PICTURE OF THE HEADSTONE.
WHAT I'M ASKING IS THERE ANY POSSIBILITY THAT YOU COULD PHOTO THESE TWO GRAVE SITES AND E-MAIL THEM DIRECTLY TO ME SO I CAN THEN FORWARD THEM TO THE APPROPRIATE PEOPLE ON FIND A GRAVE, AS WELL AS ANCESTRY. I AM CONSTANTLY ATTEMPTING TO CORRECT ERRONEOUS INFO, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE ITS NEVER ENDING

THE 2 PEOPLE ARE
LOUISE VIOLA NEE DONALDSON HEIKKINEN 1904-1988
SECTION: LINDEN LOT 107 PLOT 4
REINO HEIKKINEN 1909-1988
SECTION: LINDEN LOT 107 PLOT 4

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP YOU MAY BE

RE: Malcolm Cox in Nelson Cemetery
Thanks for being so gracious. This whole thing shows up one of the many reasons that memorials should not be created from obituaries.

The # is 85704954. I hate to see you delete your correct memorial. The point of all this is to help people to correctly locate graves.
Thank you for all of the memorials and grave photos you have created from Accomack County. Your efforts have been a big help to me in researching my ancestors there.

RE: James Stough
Thanks, appreciate your prompt response, and sorry for any confusion on it. I'm just not sure enough at this point for that info to show on the memorial.
