Bio and Links
Bio Photo I could care less about the number of memorial that I create. Or that I manage.I am more concerned about recording the persons in the cemetery for all time in the internet where weather, vandalism, and time doesn't degrade a person after they have been laid to rest. I have seen many headstone worn to nothingness, broken by cowardly vandals who take "kicking a man when he's down " way too seriously! The dead in this case are known only to God, they truly become nothing more than another grain of sand!  I try to keep that from happening, as much as I am able. I freely transfer the memorial that I create, I am not stuck on 4th generation criteria. If you are related, you hold more ownership to that person than I! I just hate to have other people step on my toes to glorify their own numbers. It's the deceased that is important in establishing a memorial, not the creator of the memorial page.

RE: Ira Double
Wish I could have found a tombstone. It is amazing the number of people who do not have one. So very sad. You are welcome for my effort. Barb

Reisenberger requests
I'm fulfilling your Reisenberger request but I must apologize for the photo. This marker is under water and mud after every rain and then when it dries the dirt is left. I tried wiping it with a rag but that didn't help much. I'll return to this cemetery this summer and will snap another photo if I can get the marker cleaned up.
