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,, etc.!

Hey GF!
Hope all is well and you're ready for the 4th with a water hose. lol - We definitely have the water hoses ready as it's been so dry and don't need a fireworks fire in the yard.

RE: John C Bowers
I don't fully understand the ins and outs of Findagrave, so I'm not quite sure what my responsibilities would be if you "transfer" them to me. I'll have to look into it. I'm sure they have something on here somewhere unless you can explain it to me briefly. I'm a bit challenged when it comes to technology and need lots of guidance. I have obits to put on, people to be added from scratch, will have to learn how to do the pics, etc. I have to decide if I'm up for it once I find out what's involved. Thank you.

RE: Jacob Harrison #117532887
Hi Dee - I'm guessing that Abraham and Rachel are Jacob's parents, as they are the only other Harrisons in that cemetery (all your memorials).
Possible reason for Jacob & his wife Theresa being buried in different cemeteries: he was only 52 when he died, while Theresa lived to be 83. She may have had him interred with his people, and gone to live with (or near) her family. When she died 30 years later, she was buried in her family's cemetery.
My grandmother did the same thing. Her husband died in his 40s; she lived to be 83. He is buried near his parents in one cemetery. She is buried near her parents and infant daughter in another.
God bless!

RE: Mary Kline Slocomb in Nelson Cemetery
Thank you very much. I had confused Mary for a family member but she wasn't and wanted to try to straighten it out. I appreciate your help.
