Bio Photo 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 !!!!

Dorothy Kemp Tombstone Photo.
her mother, Irene Grimes, is related to me through the Sullivan side of my family. Irene Grime's mother was Emma Agnes Sullivan. Her parents were my great great grandfather John Sullivan and a woman named Julia Callahan (or Callaghan) Sullivan (whose tombstone i haven't found yet along with many others in my family). My geneaology search will be greatly helped if i could get more photos of their tombstones. There must be hundreds of other tombstones that haven't made it onto FindAGrave.com. For instance, besides a lot of the Sullivan's, on my mothers side her mothers name was Stella Bernice Aho. Grandmother Aho's parents were named Bruno Bronislaw Grzanek and Bernice Bronislawa Grzanek. Now, except for a couple of their children, i haven't been able to find any listing of their tombstones anywhere. People like you help to make this possible with your photos. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

Not sure where I picked this up, but I'm coming up with "Mary Pat" for her name. Haven't found anything on her yet, though.

RE: Austin
Hi, Leo,

I'm sorry, I don't have anything on Harry's kids at all yet. I recently picked up his dad Bertie and started working that family again. I quit a few months ago, hoping that I'd stirred up the search engines enough to bring something to the top, but it didn't work. I think they may be the toughest family in the universe to follow. They truly scattered and I've found them from coast to coast, Washington State to Florida and points in between.

I was so glad to find your memorial for Harry. It helped me to confirm what I had and add some details and his kids, which I did not have. I will be certain to let you know if I find anything on them.

Thanks for the speedy edits! :)

RE: Anna Frommelt
Dear Leo!
I am sorry to send you on a "wild Goose chase. It was the information that was available to me. Now I will investigate a bit more and check where the Anna Frommelt is interred.
Thank you though to make the effort to find Anna.
Sincerely
Johannes G Hospel
