|I have been intrigued with family history since I was a young child. My mother came from a large family of ten children and my father was from a family of five children. There were dozens of aunts, uncles, cousins, 2nd cousins, great-aunts, great-uncles, etc. I frequently asked my mother questions about how I was related to all of those people. I was especially curious when we went to family cemeteries on "Decoration Day" each year. Mother would decorate dozens of family graves and she would tell me how I was related to each one of the deceased. She would describe them or share family stories about them. At other times she would show me pictures of them. Consequently, those graves became much more than a plot of dirt and a headstone to me. |
Mother and dad died at a fairly young age and now I cherish those memories at the cemetery on "Decoration Day". Naturally, Find-A-Grave is a resource that is very near and dear to my heart.

My husband really deserves the credit. LOL He's my helper in finding stones on my graving expeditions. He also found another Bough next to Roscoe. Her name is Myrtle which I also photographed and uploaded to her memorial. I'm glad we were able to locate Roscoe's for you and, of course, Myrtle as a bonus.

You are very welcome. My father is buried at SFNC, and it is always an honor to fulfill requests there.

You are very welcome. This time, I took my husband with me and he is the one who found the grave. We were both so thrilled that we found it. It is a very unique memorial. I am glad we could capture the inscription with a photo before time wears it away.
|sherrie myers||RE: Thank you|
You are very welcome. I will go out there and try again soon.
|Shirley Houk||RE: broken headstone - KUHN|
Thank you for your recent message regarding Peter and Minnie Kuhn's headstone. It took me awhile to access Find-a-Grave - seems as though ever since Ancestry acquired Find A Grave, there has been nothing but problems.
Unfortunately, I am not in the position physically located nor financially to have anything done to get their headstone back up on the foundation.
Fortunately, you have taken photographs so at least their stone will always be legible which probably won't last due to being on the ground and the lettering more exposed to the elements.
A very sad situation indeed.
