Welcome to my profile.|
Everyone who knows me knows that I love getting to know my ancestors and have spent the better part of the last thirty years devoted to it. I enjoy walking through cemeteries and looking at memorial stones. I find it relaxing and peaceful and have met some of the nicest people through Find A Grave!
It makes me happy to help someone add a page to their history and keep the person's memory alive. I also feel that it may give a family a type of closure to know where a loved one is located.
Please, do NOT copy my photos to ancestry.com without giving me credit. Simply indicate "© 2010-2017 Chloe on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated.
Please use the new Edit System when possible for making any name or date changes to a memorial. You add the changes yourself and I will approve them or contact you for further clarification.
I am happy to add or correct information for you on memorials. I am somewhat liberal with transfers of anyone not related to me, but please state your specific relationship.
Please also feel free to contact me via email or post a message regarding any additional related family members. Perhaps we are cousins!
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Thanks again Chloe for the Census information on the Andreas and Elizabeth family. Hopefully this will also help other people searching this family. I never knew my grandfather, Andreas, but knew my grandmother Elizabeth.
|Joanne Davis||RE: Elizabeth and Andrew Heim|
Thank you Chloe I really appreciate it.
|Joanne Davis||Elizabeth Barbara Schuck Heim|
Hello. My name is Joanne Heim Davis. Elizabeth Schuck Heim and Andrew Joseph Heim are my paternal grandparents. I have pictures of both of them. May I post them on your site? Thank you.
|Michael Vrchota||RE: Ramus Rasmussen|
The one I am looking for was married to Josephine Vrchota. They were married in Montana. Record lists born 1883 in Ludington Mich. USFC for 1920,1930 and 1940 indicate birth place is Michigan and in 1940 USFC it show both of them living in LA. He could have died in San Francisco but lived in LA. He was a civil Eng and did a lot of moving around. We could leave the death location as Ca. His wife died in 26 June 1980 but no burial record. I thought of calling the cemetery to see if she is buried there. Actually at this time I am not related but I have been doing extensive research trying too link my family to this branch of Vrchota's. then I got carried away and set out to link all the Vrchota's in this country. There is only one correct spelling and that is Vrchota. variations are Wrchota,Verchota,Vercota and many others. I have documented over 3000 of them coming from only 3 areas of Czechoslovakia. Trebo, Tabor and Kojakovice. All within about a 50 mile radius. My family is from Tabor and goes back to 1740. Anyway if his wife was buried they that would solve the issue.

|Deborah (Richter) Garcia||RE: Frances Littlefield|
Yes after I wrote it I thought I should check out the name. When I wrote that barb had the wrong place she corrected after and I never removed the note. It is gone now.
|Deborah (Richter) Garcia||RE: Frances Littlefield|
Im not sure what your talking about. I have not been active for awhile on this site. Did you mean to send to someone else?
