TO ME FIND A GRAVE IS NOT JUST A RECORD OF HEADSTONES, BUT ANOTHER FAMILY GENEALOGY SITE AS WELL.
RE ANCESTRY'S BUYOUT OF FINDAGRAVE: Ancestry should continue to maintain FINDAGRAVE AS A FREE GENEALOGY RESEARCH SITE since FINDAGRAVERS add information to their memorials that may not find it's way to Ancestry otherwise. BE SURE TO Save copies of your family's memorials to your computer!
MY GOAL: is to create accurate memorials that will honor the memory of each individual.
CORRECTIONS OR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Please let me know if I have made a mistake or misprint on any memorial or if you have additional information by clicking on the EDIT button on the top right of a memorial.
VIRTUAL CEMETERIES: When you cannot control your ancestor's Find A Grave memorials then CREATE a VIRTUAL CEMETERY. Check out how to do this on your member page.
LINKS: Be sure to link children to their parents and wives to husbands. FindAGrave then automatically adds siblings if they are linked to their parents.
TRANSFERS: If I have created or am maintaining a memorial that you would like transferred to you, please use the EDIT button on the top right of the memorial page to make your request - I will do so as speedily as possible if I have no personal link to the memorial.
SPECIAL "HOW TOS" (HELPS) FOR MY FELLOW FIND A GRAVE VOLUNTEERS USING HTML CODE:
HOW TO EXPAND YOUR BIO PAGE AS WELL AS YOUR INDIVIDUAL MEMORIALS : Just type a line across the page at some point in the bio OR add a row of characters. Just make sure to leave your EDIT TAB IN FULL VIEW. Recheck before continuing.
HOW TO CREATE BOLD TEXT:
To create bold text in your Find A Grave memorials or on your home page you need to USE SOME HTML CODING by first type < and next TYPE the letter b with no space and then type > NEXT TYPE THE TEXT THAT YOU WANT IN BOLD PRINT and at the end of what is to be in bold TYPE < no space then / then b then > with no spaces in between them.
HOW TO CREATE ITALICS TEXT:
You can also do the same thing with italics by switching out the b and replace with i (for italics) using the same procedure. Or you can do both bold & italics by adding both the corresponding HTML codes one following the other with no space. Experiment with this until you get it right. Try it!
HOW TO CREATE A LINK TO ANOTHER FIND A GRAVE MEMORIAL:
Sometimes you may want to link to another memorial especially when there is no way to normally link the memorials - use the following HTML Code:
< a h r e f = "http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid= number "> name < / a >
NOTE: There are no spaces in the code except one after a before href. I had to make spaces so you can read this. Then find the memorial you want to link to, copy the number from the bottom of the memorial and paste that number where you see the word number - then delete the word number being careful not to remove any other notations. Then place the name of the person you want in place of the word NAME. Carefully delete the word name. Then click SAVE CHANGES. Always check to make sure the link has taken place and it is to the correct memorial.

|John Latchford Beck||RE: Fuller headstone photo|
Hello: thanks for the speedy edit and your kind words. I've been amassing info in Family Tree Maker, but help off joining Ancestry all those years probably because of the cost. Then a few years ago it just dawned on me to join.
There's so much information on line these days!!
I'm sure your tips will be of great help.
Thanks for your kind permission,
Happy New Year,
|John Latchford Beck||Fuller headstone photo|
I'm writing to ask permission to used your photo of the headstone for John & Marietta Fuller. I would like to add it to their records that I have in Family Tree Maker. I will, of course, credit you as the photographer.
Thanks for all the amazingly useful information in your profile!
Thanking you in advance,
John Latchford Beck
|Eddy Dodson||RE: David Fadely & Mary Fadely|
I understand and I am always happy to meet a fadely desendant. I have some information on David's service in the War of 1812 if you are interested in adding it to his memorial. I am also a member of the SAR under David Sr.
|Michael S. Markwood||Daniel Wotring|
Hi, my name is Michael Markwood, #47643470. I am looking for info on Daniel Wotring #76822279 (1776-1839). I see that you have him listed on this site and under the burial info you have: Specifically: Farm south of Aurora, Preston County, WV. I live in Eglon, WV which is right beside Aurora and would like to know where Daniel is buried. Do you have the exact location where he is? Daniel Wotring is my 5th great grandfather. Thank you for any help you may have.
|C Yocom||Indexing a death|
I just indexed a death which I believe is your Mary Elizabeth Lear Sine. It's so messed up, I think you would never find it. Death Cert Commonwealth of Virginia, #13498, listed as Sarah Elizabeth Sine. I thought with the info on the memorial you must have done a lot of research on this line and wanted to let you know. I came to find your memorial because I couldn't read her last name but her mother Matilda was fairly clear.

Just want to also say thank you for the "How TO's" of different print!! Appreciate it!! Laura
|Robert Galloway||Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!|
Thanks for putting on your bio page the method to use for bold and/or italic print on memorial records. I had wondered forever on how to do that but you explained that so simple. Thanks!
|Church Volunteer||James W.C. Hall|
Thanks again for the note. I went thru my copy of the "History of Fremont Church & School" and if I may, here is an excerpt, "When Rev. Summers became teacher he moved from Cedar Creek to the red house nearby the church, now owned by the Misses Hall, daughters of J.W. Hall". The misses may have been Myrtle and Minnie Hall, who became teachers themselves, with Myrtle going on to be a certified public school teacher. The birth date of James W.C. Hall posted at F.A.G. fits well with the James W.C. Hall mentioned in the list of the students who attended Fremont School at its opening in the 1853. The author praises Col. James B. Hall for all of his ten children being "well fed, well clothed and as well educated as circumstances would permit at that day". It's the author of this book who calls the son as Dr. James W.C. Hall, MD and whom was still living as of 1918 when the book was published. I hope these notes help, and yes, I write way too long, so please feel free to delete my notes at your choosing. Best Regards, CV.
|Church Volunteer||Maj Daniel Wotring|
Thanks again for the note. Here a follow-up with a little more info. There are 3 written references which I've used for posting the info relating to the Hall family descendants. The first one, Norris, is quoted on the Wotring memorial page 107641522 The 2nd is Cartmell, "Shenandoah Valley Pioneers" pg 440 which not only details the Hall & Clowser & Rosenberger families, but he had actually written about them in the same order that their homes were on Rt 600. The 3rd is from the book "History of Fremont Church & School" where many of these families attended both activities. The author, Asa Richard personally knew these families and he is the source which mentions Dr. James W. Hall. Some of his excerpts are posted on the Summers memorial 108969564 who was once tutor/teacher of them both. I also have a (fair) photo of the old Hall place if you're interested. It's no longer standing however. And the Wotring place burned down not so long ago; it being vacant for decades. I know you're familiar with these sources, but I hope putting them all together here helps. Best Regards, CV.
|Church Volunteer||Hall Cemetery Location|
Thank you for the note. The cemetery consists only of the four graves that are listed. It is on a very private homestead today; which was once a part of the Hall place. The location "Rosenberger" actually no longer exists. It was a reference to the Rosenberger Post Office which closed in the 1950s. The old P.O. was on the same road which a section of the Hayfield community is, Rt 600. Whomever posted the cemetery to F.A.G. may not have had a chance to actually visit the location, and might have been doing their post from text. I've only provided the photos of the headstones as requested. I hope this helps. Best Regards, CV.
