"When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner|
Thank you in advance for the many updates and links that I receive almost daily for my memorials. I strive to keep up with them.
Before accepting information in edits now, there is a great effort made to confirm the information you send. One edit sent to me, may take 4 to 6 hours of my time searching on ancestry and other genealogy sites to complete. I gather the records for said edit, gain knowledge of the family, contact other contributors to link family members that I am able to find, so that the entire family can be linked on any given memorial.
Please make sure your information is accurate, so that I can accept it. There are a lot of people being linked to those they do not belong to due to so many "same names". It is an easy mistake, I know, as it has happened to me in the past. When possible, follow your loved one from birth to death, check your dates and locations lived to make sure it is the correct memorial.
Know that I appreciate your time and effort. Please, be respectful of my time and effort. If I have made an error, sign in to Find A Grave, and send me an edit. If you have documentation of your information, include that as well.
I would also like to thank the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.
Find a Grave is kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.
Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"
When making CORRECTIONS & TRANSFERS
Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. ***PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES***
Transfer requests should be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.
Keep in mind, those of us who list the memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.
The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.
I am of the belief that "no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten." Phyllis Behrendt 2008
So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

You didn't link Walter with his parents. Please view my memorial for the links.
Sorry about the last message. I made a slight error. Willie was not the brother to my Mary. It was his Father whom was siblings to my great grandmother.

|kalber||Grace Lorraine Corbin Davis|
Good afternoon! I came across this page by chance. I am a descendant of the Davis'. My great grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Davis, sister to Grace's husband. My question to you is: All my life my grandmother (daughter of Mary) has told the family that the Davis side of the family contains N.A. ancestry, however I have never been able to locate anything. However I have heard of a story of an article being ran in a Pueblo, Co. Newspaper of an interview with Mr. Davis where he mentions his N.A ancestry, Cherokee to be exact, i believe.
I was wondering if you knew much about the family or could point me in a better direction.
Thank you for everything you do for the community!!

|Anonymous||Winifred Barton Snyder|
The photo of Winifred lined up with the other Barton women is great..I have the same photo, but without the little boy. The photo was taken by the Denison photographer (from Barron WI) at the Isaac Barton barn raising in West Maple Grove Township in October 1912. Winifred's adoptive mother Molly McAdams Barton (the tall oldest woman in the photo) was sister to my great-grandmother.
Regarding the Clemans..very sad that Winifred's biological father Jacob remarried, and had more children, but did not raise his own first family.And Jacob's parents had also relocated to Barron.!
If more Barton photos to share, please contact at email@example.com
and thank you
|JPK||John Golf FAG request|
John Golf is buried in Dry Ground. Ver markers in that area that was used for indigent and county burials up until about 1940.
If there was a headstone for him, Brad would have photographed and posted it.
Here is some information that may be helpful:
Mt. View cemetery is divided into Blocks, then lots, then grave numbers with an east or west designation. There are usually 6 graves on the east side of the lot and 6 graves on the west side of the lot. The way the montgomerysteward.com website lists them is kind of strange. But read it as block, lot, grave# then east or west side.
Go to montgomerysteward.com and look under genealogy. You can search by name OR by Block and Lot. Brad has photographed all headstones in Blocks A-Q. So if you have family in one of those blocks, they probably do not have a headstone. I usually check to be sure. I can sometimes find the grave location and take a picture if others in the lot have a headstone to use as a waypoint.
pueblolibrary.org has an index to obits that appeared in the Pueblo Chieftain. Under search on the home page, click on obit index. All you need to enter is your surname, given name. If you get a hit, there is a place to request a free digital copy of the obit. It may take a couple weeks as the microfilm has to be read.
Most mortuaries will not give out their burial information, but Davis Mortuary used to do so for burials after the big Pueblo flood in June of 1921. Chris is more helpful than his brother, Brian. You can find their contact information online. Marvin from Montgomery Steward runs the Mt. View cemetery office.

|Bob Ford||Cornelia Spencer|
Thanks for the reply. In 1910, she was living with her son Charles in Denver. The last record I can find on her is in the 1920 census living back in Mancos on the same street as her son George. George and his family can be found in the 1930 census but Cornelia is not with them. I cannot find where Charles was in 1930, but he shows up in California in 1940 and died there in 1968. I added her to the Cedar Grove cemetery with her family as the only logical place she could be. If you can find anything differently, please let me know. Thanks.

Thank you so much for the wonderful information you find. Do we know who is doing the Archival work with the newspaper?
I have had a very crazy day and when I saw what you had for my Buddy I was very pleased and it was a thrill to add his obit.
|Cathleen Sheibley Miller Kalin||uriah B Holloway dies of Yellow fever|
Thank you so much for the obituary for Uriah. He, his wife and child Elwood GEORGE Holloway all died of yellow fever. His father was also George Holloway and I suspect that Uriah's son was called George even though it was his middle name.
I have included your information on Uriah's memorial. Once again thanks for your help.
