Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE use the EDIT to ask for transfers, with your ID # and the PHOTO REQUEST if you want a photo of the stone for EACH person listed. I try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, but if they are already listed it is nice if you also request them. I print off the requests from the computer, and the "notes" don't show if you ask for other family members. You have my permission to use my photos of the stones for your family records.

It is my wish that everyone is remembered, this is my way of helping make it happen. We all will make mistakes, I'm happy to make changes and transfer loved ones always hoping that you can add to their memorials. I just want to help, when I find more information and send an edit, it is sad when that isn't added. I am so thankful for the ones that put family of ours on, some we had no idea where were, so you can see what a blessing Find A Grave has been.

Today this seems to be the case- Author Unknown
An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked. As they went along the road they passed some people who remarked, "What a shame the old man is walking and the boy is riding." The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions. Later they passed some people who remarked, "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk." So they then decided they'd both walk. Soon they passed some more people who remarked, "They're really stupid to walk when they have a donkey to ride." So they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people who shamed them by saying, "How awful to put such a load on a poor donkey?" The boy and man figured they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the donkey and he fell into the river and drowned. The moral to the story? If you try to please everybody, you might as well kiss your ass goodbye!

Having expressed this I have to say, most all of the people are easy to please. There are occasionally some who aren't, it is extremely hard to read people's minds. If you send information try to tell us how you want it added or used. It is really helpful if you send it directly to that persons memorial page, but I'll do my best to add & give credit to you however you get it to me. Thank you all who have sent links and info to make memorials more then just names and dates!

I am working on the Graf lineage so if you find a connection that might be what we are looking for regarding the messages.I know there was someone you helped me with in connection to my work that you offered to transfer to me. Don't sweat it. We will discover who it is eventually.

RE: Martha Ray Chism
Luella, Thanks for your last note. We did have a wonderful day. I said the lady was 95 I think in prior message, she is 97 and will be 98 on the 20th of Jan 2015. She keep up with us all day. She walks without any type of aid. Doesn't want you to help her in and out of the car. She is so special. We went to about 5 cemeteries. Left about 9:30 and got back at 7. Weather was a little cool with not much sun. We hope next year to go 1st of Oct. The trees were still beautiful, but would have been better a couple of week earlier. We were talking about the picture of Martha Ray Chism you found on Find A Grave. I must ask one more question how did you find this? Take care. Have a great day tomorrow.

RE: Martha Ray Chism
Thanks Luella. What a gift of love you are doing researching the children. I just think this is an interesting story. I live in Fishers, IN. We plan a genealogy trip to Randolph County, IN tomorrow, a little over an hour from here. We are taking a 94 year old friend with us. I'm sure this will be the last time she will be able to go. We went 3 years ago. We left at 8 and got back at 9. She was so funny it was getting real dark and she wanted to visit one other cemetery. We were so afraid she would fall. We had a flashlight and off she went looking for this tombstone. She found it. It was full moon which helped. Later, she told me she hoped the police would come and ask us what we were doing. We had a great day. Thanks for your most kind deed.

RE: Martha Ray Chism
Luella, Yes, I now remember. What an interesting story. I must ask you are you related to Martha Ray Chism? Where do you live? If you are related and would like the photo will be so happy to send to you.
