I am doing my family genealogy, and I wanted a headstone picture of a past relative killed, by friendly fire, during the civil war. My interest grew, and now I take pictures and create memorials myself.
I've now been a graver for more than five years, and I enjoy it as much now as I did when I started. I truly enjoy getting those photo's for other's who could not, because I now know first hand how it feels to finally have a much wanted photo of that loved one lost.
If you'd like a transfer of a memorial I've created, just ask. If it's my family, it may be difficult but not impossible.
I send a personal thankyou to all of my fellow gravers. Keep up the good work.
Nettie Greenfield & Ellen Salgat Thank you for creating and updating the memorials for Nettie Greenfield and her daughter, Ellen Damoth Salgat. I truly appreciate your efforts in linking these two ladies to the Damoth family and each other.
headstone photo Hello Al! I just created the memorial for John O'Henley's wife Catherine in St Columbkille Cemetery, Huron County. Just wanted to tell you that I used the headstone photo that you took for John's memorial. I gave you full credit for being the original photographer in the photo memo section. Please let me know if you would rather I remove the photo. I will gladly do so. Thanks! Cathy Taylor
RE: Hartwick I just saw the photos and they are so good and we are truly grateful for what you have done, Al. Thank you so very much. Novesta Cemetery is lucky to have you posting so many good photos of those buried there!
Gathering Roots Al, I would like to contact this person but their message has been turned off. She has a family member I would like to see if she would transfer to me. Can you put her in touch with me? Jerry Coffman firstname.lastname@example.org PS: The family is Bowers
I located the expired listing and sent a message to the seller about the picture. He is going to put me in touch with the person who purchased it to see if s/he might be interested in selling it. Here is a link to the expired listing -you'll have to scroll down to see the actual listing.
The picture posted there was listed for sale on Ebay. IT was identified by the seller as John R Cross of 113th Ohio. Note there were two John R Cross from Ohio who both served in the Union Army during the Civil War. As I have Cross ancestry, I copied the image and have just now made any headway in researching him. Unfortunately, the listing has now ended and I didnt save it, but I did copy the picture. The listing might be found by searching Ebay for ended listings?
Please let me know how this man fits in with your Cross ancestry - if he does. Thanks so much. Laura
