As a newcomer to findagrave.com, I have found it very interesting and what a great way to remember loved ones. Look forward to memorializing as many of my relatives as I can.|
It's kinda sad to walk through the cemeteries and see so many headstones with little or no inscription left, or the headstones have fallen over, are broken or completely gone. We need to record as much information as possible before it's gone forever.
I don't have a problem with you using any of the photos I take and post to your memorials for your other family history projects, just ask. If your going to use them for profit, then there is a problem.
It's amazing how a few people say that it's not about the number game when asked to have your relatives transfered to you and they refuse. If it's not so, then why don't they honor your request? I understood it's about helping others with their family history, but apparently that's no so !!!
When entering memorials, please check for correct dates and spelling of names to avoid creating duplicates...
Don't think of them as gone away
their journey's just begun
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one
Just think of them as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years
Think of how they must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away
And think of them as living
in the hearts of those they touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and they were loved so much !!!!

Thank you so much for the tombstone photo. Paul Crim and Magdalena Lana Steele are my 6x great grandparents, and their daughter Maria Catherina Crim Casler is my line. Adam would be a 5x great uncle. I greatly appreciate your taking the time to photograph tombstones before they are lost forever.

I see the pictures on Crim cemetery, were those today? I'm kinda new at this and can't figure out which are some of the newer ones. If you have a memorial number that goes along with the pic. that would be great. It would be awesome if it has some clues to some of the long lost records I have. Great pics of the Crim's BTW-it's hard to get up there if they're haying (and I would never go there alone!)
|Lorraine Smith Bell||RE: Hoyer|
Hoyer is awesome so I think you're thinking of the cemetery by my parent's land. That cemetery was maintained by my cousin until he had a massive stroke and could no longer upkeep it. My cousin and wife sold their farm so now I think it is probably in worse shape than ever. The DAR was going to try to save the remaining stones, sadly most are in the ground covered with earth or moved to the stone wall - so no telling which plot they belonged to. Thank God for LDS research, they have a lot of names of those buried there. It's know as the Jeremiah Marshall Farm Cemetery- but who knows how long since the Marshall's lived there. They haven't been around in the 100 years that my family owned that particular part of the farm acreage.
|Lorraine Smith Bell||Hoyer|
Yes, it is. BTW which Crim are you so I can keep an eye out for anything through my searches. Thanks!
|Lorraine Smith Bell||RE: Hoyer Hill Cemetery|
It's the one in Jordanville by the monastery - across from Crim.
|Lorraine Smith Bell||Katherine Crim Kayner|
Just curious- does the stone say Catherine or Katherine- I just see Atherine? I've seen it spelled both ways through her history- maybe they left it Atherine?
|Kurt Riegel||RE: Fixing headstones|
Yes, we do repair and upright damaged stones. Which stones are you interested in? Send me an email with some photos of the stones you are looking at and I will send you back an estimate. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
