Bio Photo There is a word for men that lose their wives, wives that lose their husbands, children that lose their parents.

There is no word for a mother who loses her child...


How you make others feel says a lot about who you are


If I have created a memorial for a family member of yours, don't hesitate to request a transfer.

Any photo I have posted on Find a Grave is intended to be used.... Please feel free to use them in personal use and documentation.

Searching means finding the other entry, even though it may contain an error and working together means sending an edit.

Links, Corrections, Transfers and/or additional information
If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.

Find a Grave does not require that I search the entire Find a Grave system globally, only the individual cemeteries in which I am adding to. Please do not move your Burial Unknown into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my duplicate. For further information on this, please refer to how Find a Grave handles duplicate memorials.

Lastly and most importantly
There are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.


"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

- Hunter S. Thompson

RE: Soloman Cecil
BTW. Try to get over yourself. Your methods, your attitude, and lack of understanding show me you need a new hobby. I have been doing this for nearly 20 years and do not need a spelling correction nor a lesson on how info is gathered from a 5 year amateur.Do not bother to reply as I will just delete further contact.

RE: Edward Ira Franklin
I was told by a family member and then the documents in Ancestry matched the information I was given. He changed his name when he was a young adult.

RE: Soloman Cecil
Linda, While the census records do not match by one year either one would be better than unknown, which gives the sense of totally not knowing anything at all. Its done all the time just to give one a sense of time involved. Circa is used extensively in this field. Because it cannot be used on the sight I see no reason why 1806 or 1807 could not be used to give a sense of life span. In Genealogy accuracy is paramount but much is lost over time.It is our job to try and make sense of that loss without over stating it. Anyway its your call. Unknown is just so decisively empty when we know better. Dan P

RE: Georgea E Brown Headstone Photo
Yes, they still have that lovely view and will soon see the whales migrating south from their lovely outlook. The Cemetery replaced the grass before and I have photos of it then too but it was all dirt. They told me at the office that they are replacing with a hardier grass that holds up to the ocean salt better. Thank you again for your kindness
