How ironic, I also, in the 80's, went to college for Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration. LOL what a small world.

How do you copyright a photo? I had many, many old pictures of my ancestors. I shared those photo's on Find A Grave. I didn't want my loved ones, my bloodline, to be forgotten. I learned all I could about their morals and the struggles they faced from day to day. They lived life with an honor system and a belief that everyone was important. If word was received of a neighbors misfortune they never stood around thinking "oh well". Instead they put themselves in their shoes and pulled together with other neighbors as a team. Special bonds were formed and with the help from God above they worked side by side until the misfortune's were mended Their values and morals should be remembered and mimicked by us, their descendants. We are the ones left to carry on and to behave as they themselves would. I felt the very least I could do was to put in place a memory of them that would remain long after I am gone. I remember how distraught I felt when I saw that someone, I didn't even know, had copied my photo's and claimed them as their own posting them to websites such as Ancestry. What bothers me is that this person never had the desancy to even mentioned me or the hard work and love I put into telling my ancestor's story of their most valuable existence. I am, as well as many others, because these precious people existed.

RE: Amen
omg.....thank you so much for understanding that. I get harassed by a group in my area. If I post a memorial, I usually get an edit very soon.....sometimes within minutes.

Thanks for all you do also!

RE: Duplicate
You are welcome, Phil. I appreciate when someone tells me, when there was a hiccup on the memorial. Thank you for all you do.

Edward Glancey Ogle #147233378
After Edward Ogle's death, his wife remarried and his son was adopted by her new husband. The son passed away in 2011 with the surname of his adoptive father, naming two fathers as having predeceased him.

I created a manual link from the son's memorial to Edward Ogle's memorial.

The son's memorial is here:

William R. Rickson
I was doing family research in SLC history library this weekend and found no documenting info on William R. Rickson but did find in 1870 census he was no where to be found but his wife Miraiah and children were in Goodson, Washington Co. Virginia living with her father Henery Moree. Does not list marital status.
I also found evidence in a Jesse Miller diary that he was present when his youngest son was born, William Edward in 1867 Goodson, Washington, Virginia.
In the 1880 Census the family was also still present in Goodson, Washington, Virginia but no indication of William R. Rickson - but it did state that she was a widow at this time.
We did a complete search of info avaliable of the area and found no death, burial or cemetery records for him.
I think the marker just might be in his memory and that he actually is not buried there.

William R. Rickson
I have a question about your William R. Rickson -
in 1870 we have his death in Washington County, Virginia - how is it that he is buried in Betonville, Missouri?
Why would they haul him across country to do this? It says there is no stone - but I really wonder if he is buried there?
