*Oh, by the way, most of the memorials I created are made-up and fictitious. I just did it to get to over 50,000 entries which was supposed to qualify me for a prize ribbon of achievement for FAGer's. Found out it was an untruth! Not nice to lead one astray. I really wanted that ribbon of achievement as it would go down in history as my finest hour.

If you can't say please or thank you, don't ask me! OK?

Perhaps you have seen me at the cemetery in my 1956 Cadillac hearse. Runs great, has some rust, equipped with casket, plastic flowers, and funeral cones. Bose speakers behind the front grill that blasts out tunes from the Grateful Dead.

Have you ever noticed the absence of toilets at most cemeteries? When nature calls, what is one to do? Thank God for corn fields and big trees.

Isn't it weird that we FAG volunteers want to be in cemeteries before we have to?

I am proof that if you do too much with FAG, it will cause brain damage, cause infidelity, and create insomnia.

People ask me to do so many transfers, I think I should be working for a bus company.

In case you are wondering, I am related to each and every one of the people I have memorialized. Yes, my My Family Tree is over 52,500 souls and some red-necks. Democrats are buried with blue tombstones and the Republicans are buried in red. It is fun to go to the local cemetery and see all those red markers, sprinkled in with just a few blue one's.

THINK OF FINDAGRAVE as a Facebook for the Dead!

Antique stores sell dead people's stuff. Just like death, all deals are final, no returns unless you are Jesus!

An early farmer in Iowa used to bury the remains of animals, birds, fish, and an occasional vagrant in order to fertilize the soil. This particular farmer always had bumper crops and the rumor was that he and the Mrs. mass murdered the wild life in the area, buried the remains in the soil, resulting in the best corn crop in the county. (Neighbors said that late at night they could see the dude out in the field with only a flashlight and a shovel.) His name was Osama Bin Farmer with ties to a fanatical Methodist group.

I am enjoying your evolution. Doesn't that mean
"third generation of Deutsch seamstresses casting stones"?

Glad to hear from you.
I see you changed your name again, and your bio. You sure come up with some great ones!

RE: Conklin, Lansing
Hi Larry
Thanks for all your photos and help. We both started a memorial page for George Conklin on the same day. Thanks for doing that, but could you delete your memorial for George Conklin.
The picture for Lanson-Lansing Conklin Jr. is the same one at the one for Lanson Sr. Lanson Jr's is in the next row and up closer to the entrance.
Very close to Lanson Jr. is another Conklin , Thomas and M. Louise. Could I prevail on you to take a picture of that one also ? I will start a memorial for Thomas and M. Louise Conklin.
Thanks a Bunch!!!!!!!!!.

RE: Mary Hathaway
Minnie Fish was the first wife of Daniel Hathaway, and Mary was the second wife. Daniel and Minnie had 2 children, Hazel and Ernest. So in answer to your inquiry, no Minnie isn't a relative but there is a connection. Was there a headstone for Daniel?

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph Mary's headstone. This helps so family is not forgotten, especially when she had no children of her own. God bless you and folks like you!

RE: Conklin, Lansing
thanks for checking about the Conklins. George and Lanson are buried close together. Lanson Jr. is on the far side of the next row. I will start a memorial page for George Conklin wo if you have time to take his picture, I would greatly appreciate if.
do you live in Rockford?
Both of my great grandparents (Bugbee and Conklin) settled in Rockford about 1860. They are related to the Abbott family, Pitt family, the Ross family and the Reems family were neighbors.
Thnaks again for all your help.

RE: Charles Bugbee
thank you so much for checking for Charles Bugbee. I was there about 20 years ago and both headstones were there. I took pictures of them at the time, but I can't locate them now.
Could I ask you another favor? I have a picture of Lanson Conklin's headstone but it is not a clear picture. Could I prevail upon you to take a picture of his headstone at Elmwood. Lanson was born in 1826 and died in 1897. His son Lanson Jr. is also buried there and he died in 1899. I have just added both of them to Find A Grave and I will request a photo for both of them. Thanks for all your help. Barbara Moore
