Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave has been a great resource for freely sharing information among researchers. I am rather concerned that will figure out a way to screw it all up like they have with RootsWeb. I would like to think that they learned their lesson from all the negative publicity they received in that earlier takeover, but they are so focused on the Almighty Dollar that it's hard to predict -- their corporate greed overwhelms both their common sense and common decency. If they begin to charge or otherwise restrict access (mandatory registration or tracking cookies) in order to view the photos and data that have been freely donated by millions of volunteers, I know that I will immediately delete any of the items that I still have control over.

You may freely use any of the grave photos which I have taken for any legal purpose. The other items (personal photos, obits and other documents) may have copyright restrictions of which I am unaware, so use your own best judgement on those.

RE: William & Esther Jones photos
Yup, hers was pretty dirty. Her stone has sunk quite a bit. The letters were all plugged full of moss and dirt too. I thought you might like to be able to actually see what it said on her stone. Cleaning them up is good exercise for me and it is the only way I can get myself to exercise. So it is a win win situation.
There was another Jones couple three rows straight down the hill from where they are. I did some checking and it does not look like they are related. There are a few Joneses here and there are there not? :-]
The names were Charles Wesley Jones 1865-1933 and his wife Mary Elizabeth 1867-1931
Nobody has added them to Find A Grave. I will probably do that tomorrow.

RE: Wild family grave photos
Just got back from the Union Cemetery office.
Bessie N. Wild is definitely interred in the 1917 Addition Lot 507 of Union Cemetery. The records indicate she was re-interred from Greenlawn Cemetery August 8, 1921.
You can set up a page for her or request a transfer from the originator of the Greenlawn page. I only set up pages for any of my family members. I primarily am a photo volunteer.
I have a photo of her monument to attach.
Please let me know what happens.

RE: Wild family grave photos
Very interesting! The marker is adjacent to Richard/Florence Wild and simply is inscribed "Bessie M Wild 1884-1900". Possibly a sister to Richard?
Later in the week I will be researching at Union Cemetery and will dig deeper.

RE: Wild family grave photos
There was also a grave for 16 year old Bessie Wild next to the other graves.
You are welcome. I enjoy taking the photos. It is a nice quiet time for me to get away on my own.

Thank you for the Obituary, I didn't know she remarried after Judd's death, I was told by a cousin that she was buried next to her first husband Judd Doolittle. Thank you again I do appreciate it.
