Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 "© 2010-2016 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.

RE: Charles Henry Hibbard & family
Hi Chloe, thanks for your prompt reply.

Will digest the further info on Rev. Chas.H.

We are located in Christchurch, New Zealand, "down under as you would say".

Kind regards,

Les.

RE: Susie Abigail Grant
I've got it. It was about correcting information on Susie' mother Martha.

RE: Susie Abigail Grant
Chloe, sorry it's taken a while but I kept getting side tracked but here it is. Susie Grant was married to Lester Daniel Rogers and she was the daughter of Andrew Jackson & Martha Jane (Beckstead) Grant.

Her cemetery number is; 138617827. I hope this can help you. I actually forgot what I had asked you, was it "were you related to her".

Susie Abigail Grant
Chloe, I was just looking at Susie's information in FindAGrave.com and noticed that you mention Susie' mothers maiden name was Vallon. I am the gr-gr-granddaughter of Martha Jane and want to let you know and please correct that Martha Jane maiden name was Beckstead, d/o William Ezra & Mary Jane (Winn) Beckstead. Martha md (1) Andrew Jackson Grant (father of Susie) then his brother (2) Dr. James Madison Grant and lastly (3) Frederick M. Vallon. Martha had 4 children by Andrew, 1 child by James and 3 children by Frederick.

I hope that this helps with the confusion. Thank you for your work.

RE: Janise's Photo?
That's odd. Here's my story--my parents and aunt and uncle are buried here. And I take lots of pix for find a grave. When I saw that the cemetery was only 20% photo'd, I went down a couple of times and shot the whole thing. I'm not done posting yet, and to be honest my brain us a little fried. Will check back this pm

RE: O'Neill Duplicates
Hi Chloe,
Very gracious of you to take care of the O'Neills. Not sure what I was thinking when I 'corrected' the spelling of their name as I entered them originally. :>
They are from an interesting family, especially Owen's mothers side. Some very detailed trees on Ancestry with some early photos.
Thanks again!
