Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy since 1988. I love walking through cemeteries, imagining the lives of the people I pass.
Most of the pages I post are for people to whom I am not related. (the ones I am connected to usually have a photo of the person added). These "extra" people are ones from local (and not so local) cemeteries that my husband & I photograph their stones and I enter them on FAG, trying to link as many as I can so the families are brought back together after all this time. I do lots of research to accomplish this and I hope I add correct information. I love to connect these people and I'm always thrilled when something comes together, either through the census, obits, marriage records, a family genealogy, Rootsweb entries, or even "social" news in an old newspaper. I hope I find "homes" with descendants for all these people. Please ask for a transfer if you are related.
If you find someone you are related to and would like to take over their page, please request a transfer through the EDIT option, on the particular individual's page. Select "Suggest" and type in your request, which will then send me an email that will be linked to the person.
as an added comment--I always try to guessimate a person's birth year, based on age at death, so it obviously is not always correct. I just feel that a person searching for an ancestor will be less confused with an estimated birth year, rather than having to paw through other entries with no year listed at all.

Higgins Mendon Cemetery

Thank you so much for the post and info for Eileen Meaney Higgins. Just this weekend, her husband joined her in her final resting place. She is the mother of my boyfriend and her husband and his father passed away in April of this year. This past weekend, James Higgins joined his wife in his final resting place. I didn't want to ask my boyfriend to take pictures and update the Find A Grave memorial. If you are in the area - please take a photo of the updated stone and add records for James Higgins. Thank you!

James S. Forman
Cheri, I've searched this cemetery a couple of times and missed this grave. Do you happen to remember the general area that you found this? He is my ggf from his first wife.

RE: Joseph, Viola & Diane Fox Headstone photo
Yes, I have already sent Sherry a request asking for transfer but thank you for the advice. I am still new to Find A Grave. I would like to manage what family I can find on here, and create memorials for other members who do not currently have memorials.

Spending a summer photographing 13,000+ markers is quite an awesome feat. Many thanks for your hard work and dedication to helping others.

Headstone photo
I want to thank you for taking the photo of the headstone which marks the graves of my grandparents and aunt. My grandparents were Joseph George Fox and Viola C. Fox (the "C" is for Catherine). My aunt was Diane M. Fox (the "M" is for Marie). They all share the same headstone.

In your bio you stated you loved imagining the lives you pass as you walked through a cemetery. I'll give you some tidbits: My grandmother was a homemaker who made the BEST peanut butter cookies in the whole world. Before my grandfather retired, he had worked in construction - building bridges, and then worked in a steel foundry for many years. He could build anything, which included their house. My aunt had an office job working for the government. She had a great laugh to go with her sense of humor. :)

Good work finding this stone before it becomes totally unreadable. Now we have a record of its location - thanks.
