Bio and Links

Keeping and maintaining our relatives.

Redistributing the other memorials to someone we know will take care of them and isn't interested in collecting dead people like normal people collect friends.

NOTE: If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to be a manager, please make arrangements to transfer your memorials to someone who is active and cares about the accuracy of the information. This really will help reduce duplicates, which we notice with increasing frequency.

If you place memorials and don't come back, or you refuse or neglect to fix them, link them, etc., they are as abandoned as many of the graves we encounter in cemeteries, only you have now abandoned these people twice.

It would also be a good idea to leave a family member or friend instructions on how to make transfers of your memorials in the event of your own untimely death.

In addition, it's not up to you to make new FAG rules regarding anything.

Thank You

(Borrowed from another active FAG Contributor)

"Ancestors are nice to have
We could hardly do without them
And if they made the page of fame
We strut and boast about them.

But there are those who think that souls
Who have lived out life's brief span
Still hang around their earth's abode
To watch the works of man.

So when I think of ancestors
Who have crossed the Great Divide
I wonder if they view my life
With the same exultant pride."

By Pearl E. Bowers
2nd Cousin, 3X removed

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Mary Elizabeth Frye, 1932.

RE: Claude C. Field
I don't have much on the Connely's except for what I've found on Jean Alberta Field (middle name after her maternal grandfather, Dr. Albert Jameson) was the only child of Claude C. Field and Eva Maude Jameson. Her Find A Grave memorial # is 72547525; she married a Pierce Dennis Pisle and he is buried in the same cemetery; they share a gravestone. It says "Mother" and "Father" so I am assuming that they had children together. I do find him married to a Pearl before he was married to Jean. I have not been able to find anything more on Jean and/or her children.

There is a lovely old studio print of Maggie Connely Field on was in an old album of Claude's and my grandmother's and it was marked "Claude's mother". Also, a photo of her 3 children: Claude, Helen, and Maxwell.

There are also alot of photos of Claude and my grandmother Marion Davis Smallman Field...and their pets! They loved photos of themselves!

I wish I could be more helpful on the Connely's...take care,Laurie

RE: Claude C. Field
No, Claude only had the one daughter by his first wife. I will look up more on her from my family tree and let you know what I have for her and her family. I know he just about abandoned her after her mother died and he married my grandmother...she wasn't even listed in his obituary but I'm sure that was my grandmother's doings!

I should've asked how you are connected to the Field family? Perhaps on Claude's father's second marriage or on the Connely side? Thank you, Laurie

I didn't have to look far for him...he was my grandmother's 2nd husband! Perhaps you can add him to his mother's profile page, Margaret "Maggie" Connely Field Shattuck, along with his siblings? Thank you, Laurie

RE: Lafayette
I know how you feel. I am always afraid to tell people that I've had a few write back and say 'too bad, my memorial is staying'.
I prefer accuracy though, so you can send me any corrections that you come across. :)
Thanks again,

Jewett Cemetery
You will be happy to learn that a scout has made a project of clearing this cemetery with the help of the owner of the land adjacent. A lot of work to do, and some research. One of the men was a Mexican war veteran, but we don't know which one. This cemetery is also called Henderson-Jewett, ans I've been told another name involved in it from long ago. An Otto I believe. So many stones have been lost so long ago, it will be incomplete, but better.

RE: Marcia Valentine Thomson
One more thing: Do you mind if I add your gravestone photos to my Ancestry family tree?

The Description field will say: "Taken by Find A Grave contributor Taphophile Duo [or your name if you prefer] - used with permission."

Thank you for calling this to my attention and explaining it! I added a note to my Memorial# 56897050 that refers to your memorial.
