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: Howard Smith Sonner
Bruce, I'm adding the photos of Sonners in Riverview, Strasburg. There are quite a few duplicate memorials. I didn't know if this was on purpose or accident. Anyway, I'm posting the photos to the older memorial pages.

RE: Howard Smith Sonner
Bruce, yes, please do use my photos on Ancestry. You're welcome to them. Your last message saddened me -- what a shame for a contributor to remove photos out of spite. Don't worry -- I am happy to photograph Sonner memorials in Riverview. Be patient, and I'll get to all of them.

RE: Howard Smith Sonner
You're very welcome, Bruce. I'll get to your other Riverview requests shortly. Howard Sonner's grave is right next to the road, so I snapped it as I walked by.
