Bio Photo "The country newspaper is truly a family record. It proclaims your marriage, it announces the birth of your children, it gives the obituary notice of a loved one of your family. It not only gives your family record, but the family record of your neighbors. Many do not realize the benefit their home paper is to them."
The Newton County News August 14, 1890

My count is unbalanced because I maintain all the memorials of my close friend and genealogy associate Bill Boggess that died on March 4, 2015. Please visit his pages and for all of his genealogy research, which is quite extensive and leave a flower. He would love that.

I also maintain numerous memorials for several contributors that are no longer on Find a Grave.

REGARDING TRANSFERS
All transfers will be done on an individual basis. Please state your relationship/or reason for requesting the transfer and be sure to include your member number.

PLEASE USE THE VIRTUAL CEMETERY FEATURE TO GROUP YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS TOGETHER. NOT ALL CAN BE TRANSFERRED CONSIDERING THERE IS A POSSIBILITY SO MANY PEOPLE CAN BE RELATED IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

LINKS, TRANSFERS & INFORMATION LEFT ON THE BOARD are very time consuming to search for those memorials and less accurate.

To insure accuracy. . .
PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB on the upper right side of the memorials, then choose the Suggest a Correction feature for correspondence regarding a listing, transfers or to add information and links.

RE: Edson B Parker Memorial# 122460953
Ok, no problem. It was just odd to see Manhattan listed. Allegany County is a better in line with the family origins. Thanks for checking and making that correction. :)

Bill Boggess
I'm so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I did quite a few requests for Bill in Suffolk, VA and Bill quickly became a friend. Every request that I did for Bill was a history lesson.

Bill missed his calling in life. He should have been a history profession. Bill meticulously researched each and every one of he memorials that he established always providing source citations.

Bill will be missed.

Bill Boggess
Shock!!! Am I to assume that Bill has died??? I just visited with him end of February at Shell Point in FL!! He is a distant cousin that I wanted to meet and talk genealogy with. Oh my gosh. I just returned home and had intended on sitting down and writing him a lengthy letter letting him know how much I appreciated our visit. Please advise. Thank you, Christine (Wood)

Even if the link is just plain text it is not allowed on Findagrave. Links change over time. Please remove any plain text or hyper-links from memorial pages.

Powder Mill(s) Carthage
Just wondering if you might have ever assembled a list of those who have been killed over the years working at the powder plants there? (Hercules, Atlas, etc.) One of my ancestors worked there around the turn of the century; WININGER, James Browder # 90907556. I relate one of his stories on his memorial and I always wondered how many died in that one particular explosion. Thanks.

Thank you so much for getting me back to Findagrave. I am really attached to the Geo. Miller record. The cemetery was hard to get into as it is fenced and locked with cattle (including a bull) roaming. I slid under a gate as did my husband, keeping an eye out for the law as we did so. My husband and I traced the Miller family from Kentucky to Oklahoma, visiting each place they lived, stopping in small towns to visit little museums and speak to elderly people who had recollections of the family. We spent several days out at the site of the 101 ranch, Cowboy Hill, and the various museums that hold the ranch memorabilia. We visited the cemetery and graves in Ponca City where Miller family members are buried. The trip from our home in North Carolia to the sad remnants of the 101 is a treasured memory. If someone has something to add I have no problem with that, but I want to retain my record. It means a lot to me.

From the former shirley32olson@yahoo.com, now cammygrammy99@yahoo.com.

I am not still actively transcribing cemeteries and changed my E-mail address a while back to get rid of the nuisance messages. I wasn't thinking about losing my place in the Findagrave records and also at Rootsweb, it didn't occur to me. I also lost all my contacts so it was a big headache.

If you were messaging for a specific reason other than the name change please respond. If you know how to get my cemeteries changed over to my new E-mail I would appreciate it.

Shirley
