I have been doing genealogy since 1983 and full time since 2004. I do enjoy taking trips for genealogy and walking around cemeteries looking for family even as far away as Auckland, New Zealand. So much can be learned just from grave photos.
Find A Grave has really been helpful in locating some of the graves. You may copy photos and genealogy information for your family research ...all I ask is that you remember where you got them in case someone needs a source.
Bacon Hi, --- I received your message about the parents of Isaac Bacon, b. 1818. If you have viewed the Ancestry.com family trees, you will know that there are at least 3 different fathers listed for him. The Walker Family Tree has quite a few sources and lists his parents as Jesse Bacon, 1790 PA - 1819 TN, and Elizabeth Pritchard / Prichett, 1790 - 1851 AR. Several other trees list his parents as Jonathan Bacon & Mollie Adams. Another tree has Aaron Bacon as Isaac's father. --------- I'm not related and mainly researched George Bacon because he served during the Civil War. George's parents were together in Barton County, Kansas from 1875 - 1895. I added a little more information to the memorial for George Bacon, but I don't think I can help you determine who the parents of Isaac were ! It looks like an on-going discussion and perhaps something definitive will turn up. ----- AG
RE: Earl Murray Thanks for sharing with me how you have connected family members. It must be very satisfying to know where your kin went. I always wonder why people would move to Walla Walla, Washington, "back then", but I guess I will never really know! I hope they had a good life while here!
RE: Shipley grave There are nearly 300,000 people buried at this cemetery. So, it's huge! For the other Shipley's that you are looking for, perhaps you can make a photo request for them. The Forest Lawn website does have a search engine to look people buried at their Los Angeles-area cemeteries.
RE: cora deakins Rowe Cemetery is on the Elizabethton side of Johnson City, TN. Go out Watauga St. toward Elizabethton. "Roweland" Drive will be on the right off Watauga. Kennametal plant is on Roweland Drive. Go to the end of the street. Alemite is on the right. The cemetery is at the extreme back right corner of the property across from Alemite, at the back of the property of a distribution place called Jammin Butter. Cemetery is about 300-400 feet back off Roweland.
Walkers Hi Janelle, Just received your (EDIT notice from Find A Grave) I need a little help I guess. I am going to send you an email & just thought I would give you a heads up. Thanks for contacting me Bob
Marjorie and Alexander Godfrey Janelle, Unfortunately, the headstone for Marjorie and Alexander is broken and there are apparently no names on it. There are two small markers for Andrew d 1895 and Annie d 1917 Godfrey. I placed photos on their respective memorials. Pat Shearer
