A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS WHO SO POLITELY PUT UP WITH ALL MY ADDITIONAL INFO REQUESTS!|
I live just blocks from Greenwood Cemetery, Orlando, Orange County, FL. It's beautiful, and I'd be happy to take a photo if one is needed. I LOVE going to the cemetery!
I have been actively photographing and documenting the older sections of Greenwood. I am currently going through all their records to make sure we get everyone on findagrave.
I'll gladly transfer management of memorials upon request, no matter what your relation (unless they are my relatives - but I will transfer a relative to a direct descendant if I am not one). I create every memorial with the hope that their family will find them. Every transfer request I receive makes me know its worth it.
Please let me know if you find any errors or I've duplicated a memorial, I'll fix it! It's so important to have dates correct and names properly spelled - but we all make mistakes, and sometimes the markers are very difficult to read.
Feel free to use my photos (with credit to me - Merf works) for your personal genealogical project. My photos are of public places, and of no artistic (I can guarantee that!) merit. I don't believe I "own" a simple snapshot of someone else's grave marker. I volunteer here to SHARE and to make sure memorials are as accurate as possible. HOWEVER, photos of people - such as my relatives that I have posted...I do require permission prior to use or visible credit to me and that they came from findagrave.
My mother and I are researching our family who settled in Lee, Phillips and Monroe County, Arkansas.
In particular, we are desperately searching for parents and siblings of Thomas Trotter Bonner, who settled in Spring Creek, AR. He married Elizabeth Shackelford Bonner in 1834 in Marengo Co., AL.
Assisting my mom and the Annie H. Darracott UDC Chapter out of Lakeland, Polk Co, FL in the documentation of Confederate Veterans.
Completing FAG entries for Greenwood Cemetery using various sources including cemetery records and undertaker records. I'm only concentrating on the lettered, older sections.
Family surnames: Allen, Allred, Bonner, Coble, Estes, Gaines, Garrison, Gearhart, Gower, Hale, Harris, Higginbotham, McGee, Mauney/Mooney, Ottertail, Raymer, Redditt, Waldron, Walker, Whitfield

Thanks for the death certificate and additional information. I want to give you a heads up over a decline for the edit with the name change. If I accepted the edit it would have placed the first name as Maud with an unknown middle. Her signature was Alice Maud Rice...I did place the maiden name on the memorial and am grateful for the assistance. As always...Thanks for the information...I appreciate it.
|Barbara Wolf||RE: Long|

I worked the GOWER line many years ago, and yes it appears that you and I are distant cousins.

Thanks so much for updating this for me
I noticed GOWER was one of your family surnames. My great-grandfather was Thomas Jefferson Gower, born Apr 28, 1856 in Williamson Co, Ill; died Mar 17, 1899 in McCune, Crawford Co, KS. Where are your GOWERS from?
|Gary Yawman||Yes, it's me!|
Hello, thanks for the note. Yes, I am the one and only Gary Yawman. I am still in possession of the Yawman & Erbe Rapid Roller Copier, which sits proudly in our entry hall, and is a constant source of questions and curiosity. I am happy to have it.
It looks like we are both active on Find-a-Grave, but your numbers certainly beat mine!
|Lyle Fulton||Dwaine Grossman|
Thank your for transferring this little fellows memorial to my care. Memorials for him and both parents are now together.
