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: John Sonner
You are welcome. I just wish a picture could have been taken years ago when the writing was easier to read.

RE: Phillip S Sonner/Phillip Sonner Stover
I meant that his last name is shown as Stover, not Sonner. Just wondering.

RE: Phillip S Sonner/Phillip Sonner Stover
So, I was wondering why he is shown as 'Phillip S Stover' on his headstone, and not 'Phillip Stover Sonner'? Just curious.

Phillip S Sonner/Phillip Sonner Stover
Hi Bruce,

I have taken a picture of Phillip S Stover's headstone in Riverview Cemetery in Strasburg, VA. The memorial (142879738) shows the name as Phillip Stover Sonner...same birth and death years...but not Phillip S Stover. He is buried in the Sonner grave plot with Bettie M, James A, Calvin L and Ora E Sonner. His headstone looks to be the same shape and size as Calvin and Ora's.

Do you have any more information on him...know his parents, etc?

RE: Ira Fluhart
Bruce, will look again for the other Fluhart you requested. There is an an unmarked grave in the family plot that could be his. Will look again to cover my tracks. Not gonna give up!!

RE: Frank Taylor Austin
I just don't seem to give least not yet. Sorry there was no tombstone for him. There was only three tombstones (as you can see from the photo) on that lot. Have a good day.

Hyman family
I am working with cemetery staff and they have no records of Mary Jo and Lester Hyman in the cemetery. Do you know where you got this information?
