Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into genealogy for some 50 years and have never lost interest in helping myself and others find their roots. I find it a huge mystery game with many surprising discoveries.


TRANSFER REQUESTS: Please request if you are really a relative and will do something constructive with the memorial. If you are just a close friend, etc., the same goes for you. I will never refuse a request for valid reasons.

CORRECTIONS: additions, & family links when asked but no promises if you just send me an email instead of using the edit link. Use the Edit tab at the top right of memorial, then the Suggest A Correction option. Now we have the auto edit request and permission ability so that makes it easier. You can upload your pictures directly to the memorials, but PLEASE take pride on what you enter. Photos should be carefully composed and submitted with the highest resolution that FAG will accept.

I believe everyone prefers a typed Bio to be entered through the Bio button on the memorial page. If at all possible please transcribe the newspaper Bio and send it through the Edit button rather than attaching a photo of said Bio. I will gladly enter it in the proper location on the memorial.

Re; Smilydino's message. There is one Kathleen Anderson buried in OPC. The burial entered in 2001 used the old numbering system and so appears to be a different location. The other entry is correct. Perhaps the earlier entry could be deleted?

RE: Picture of marker for Robert Verlaque?
A friend and I are currently taking pictures of markers at the Odd Fellows Cemetery. We have taken about 200 pictures, which seems to be about half the cemetery. We checked our current images, and Robert Verlaque does not seem to be among them, but some markers are very worn and hard to read. (Even a few wooden ones that can not be read at all.) My friend and I intend to take pictures of all the markers at Odd Fellows. I will let you know if we find Robert there. Also, I think the cemetery had a list of names on a bulletin board near the gate. I will look there first, to see if Robert is listed as being there.

RE: Otis Mark
You are welcome. Yes, you will have to request a photo for your new memorial as I no longer have it. Put in a request and I will fulfill it the next time I visit the Ainsworth Cemetery.

Picture of marker for Robert Verlaque?
Are you still looking for a picture of the marker for Robert Verlaque (b. 1870, d. 1933)?

Otis Mark
If I deleted every memorial that had been duplicated, I bet I would have deleted 2,000 memorials.. okay, maybe that's a bit high.

As you already have so many kin linked to your memorial, I will delete mine if you promise to move yours to the correct cemetery.

We all make mistakes... as hard as I try to avoid it, I have even posted a few dups myself :D

Otis Mark
You set up a memorial for Otis Mark in Grandview Cemetery, Long Pine, Brown co.,Ne., and requested a photo of his headstone. He is actually buried at Ainsworth cemetery, not Grandview in Long Pine. You will find a memorial for him there, along with a photo of his stone.

Babe Hudspeth
You manage Babe's memorial and I would like to ask if you know where the photo of him standing in the coat with pistols is from. I would like to try to find the original.

RE: Beulah and Sarah Griffin transfer requests
Beulah Inez Harwood Griffin was married to my g-g uncle Charles Edgar Griffin.

Sarah Ann was the wife of my great uncle Francis Marion Griffin.

My father before his death was the family genealogist for the Griffin family and now I am working on the family records.

RE: Infant Gard
I was lucky to find any of them. I've never seen so many harmful plants in one place. If you are able to sidestep the thorn bushes, razor sharp yuccas, and poison ivy, you still have eye level trees with spikes on them. I paid dearly for every poor quality photo. In most cases, I physically can't get closer to the monuments for a better photo. I find it hard to believe it's only four years of growth, and even harder to believe that 130 people are buried in there. I'd like to help clean it up but don't know the landowner. I certainly like to take better photos, because these people deserve to be remembered.
