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.
My pictures are not copyrighted. You may certainly use my monument photos for your PERSONAL PRIVATE family trees. I am finding my pictures on Ancestry without source, and not linked, which is illegal. IF YOU CANNOT PROPERLY SOURCE OTHER'S MATERIAL, DO NOT USE IT!!
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.

|Barb T.||RE: Albert Hawkins Gates|
Hi Chloe, no, I'm not related. But I have been spending quite a lot of time at the library researching my family. Ran across his info and couldn't let it go - trying to Grave-it-Forward when I can. And please, no credit necessary. Years down the road I won't be here for anyone to contact anyway. Thanks for everything you do! Barb T.

I am researching Andrew J. Gunnison and found your memorial to an Effie Gunnnison Monaco. The 1850 US Census has Andrew J. and Effie Gunnison, age 26 living in Lowell, MA.
Andrew J, has a brother according to his obituary:
"Andrew J. Gunnison (1823-1902) arrived in San Francisco November 15, 1851, with his brother,
A. R. Gunnison, who is still a resident here."
My question: Is Effie the niece of Andrew J Gunnison?
Andrew's full obit is here: 136624047
And thanks for creating a beautiful memorial to Effie Monaco!!! Well done

You are welcome.
Duplicates are common, so if I come across in the course of doing other work, I let folks know.
