That is my philosophy when it comes to my FAG contributions.

In my travels, I have seen many different methods, processes and preferences among the FAG members and everyone is entitled to the way they do things - as long as it is historically sound. I am a 30 year data integrity nut and also a family history freak. Find a Grave is my NIRVANA!!!
Personally, I love data mining and enjoy scouring large (I mean LARGE) lists of cemetery & burial records, scouring and scrubbing, and then posting. I have a low tolerance for onesy-twosy memorial creations simply because there are so many of them out there and I ain't gettin' any younger.

Like so many other folks, I came to FAG looking for my family members and thanx to the generosity of others, I was able to locate alot of family. That is where my philosophy and my methods come from when I create memorials. If I can give someone at least a starting point on their family, then I have done good. To those folks who dig and dig to find every tidbit of information I applaud you for it that's just not my cup of tea.

So, remember, everyone has their own way of contributing to this great site and should never be made to feel inferior because they don't do it the same way you do. As long as it's right

If you have a correction or find a duplicate, let me know(and please be patient for results).
If you want to "own" it, just ask (include all numbers)
And if you think that I haven't added enough information byte me

RE: George Gray, 1855-1878, Black Rock, AR
Hi Lorie,

Thank you for replying to our request for information about George Gray. Since contacting you, our search has taken us in a little different direction. We were looking for a P. George Gray, and now have conflicting data suggesting his first and second initials were P.P., based on his marriage certificate. His mother lived in Black Rock at the time of her death in 1910, and we thought she was buried there. But not so. She was buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Pocahontas. In her family plot, there are several illegible markers, so we are having to wonder if those might be her missing husband, R M Gray, and son, P P Gray. The Masonic Cemetery contact said their records prior to 1900 are lost, so we can only wonder now. Again, what you are doing is such a tremendous service to families trying to understand their heritage. Thank you again!

birth dates for Ernest and Hazel Larsh
I believe that the birthdays for Ernest and Hazel Larsh in Ressurection Cemetery, Affton, MO are 1896 for Ernest and 15 Aug 1905.

I can send a chart if you want it.

I am trying to locate this particular person and I can find no other record of him. Do you have his parents names? I have several Thackers but can't find who he belongs with. Thank you.

George Gray, 1855-1878, Black Rock, AR
Hi Lorie, Can you help us? After an exhaustive search for my husband's great-grandfather's grave, we believe we found it in the Oak Forest Cemetery, Black Rock, Arkansas. According to our family bible, P. George Gray was buried there in 1878 (which matches the entry here in We went to the cemetery and could not find the grave, so we called a member of the committee who oversees the cemetery. She explained that their master burial records book had burned in the former caretaker's house fire, and she could find only a George W. Gray, born in 1865 -- who is not our relative.

Do you have any information on where the grave of George Gray is located in Oak Forest Cemetery? We were so glad to see his name listed on -- and are curious as to why it is not also listed on the

Any suggestions you have would be much appreciated!
