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: Letha L. Jacobs Clark
Very welcome. :) I also transferred all the Clarks to you as I am not related and like to have people with their relatives who can add any info they want anytime. :)Becky

RE: Major Peter Studabaker
Yes, I would be pleased to maintain the memorial for Maj. Peter Studabaker, progenitor of a line of descendants I have been trying to connect. Thank you for the transfer and for all your good efforts regarding the departed. See that we have similar philosophies regarding those who have preceded us. God bless.
--Sandra Studebaker
P.S. Feel free to check back periodically to see how I'm doing.

George A. Seaman
Something is wrong with this memorial# 3750996,
He was born in 1824 and both of his parents Joseph & Anna Seaman were born in 1816. The math is a bit off.
Are the birth year for him wrong or is he link to wrong parents?

Minerva Bell
Minerva does not have a headstone. I add the page from the plot book showing who she is buried with.

Bruce, I tried to fulfill your request for a tombstone pic of Sophia's grave. My wife and I walked the entire cemetery and could not find it at all. There were many old stones that all the letters were worn off. Sorry, that I could not find it.

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
