Bio and Links
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.

Thank you so much for the picture of the headstone. I do not remember requesting it, but I must have.

RE: Thank you SO MUCH!!!
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.

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.

There are two remaining graves to be photographed in this cemetery. Thought I could finish if ok with you and know it's close to where I live, but can find no address or co-ordinates. Can you help?

If you are talking about his headstone photo, it is still showing up when I open the page. Sometimes when the internet is slow, the photos will not open.
