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

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: Augustine Christy
Since Church law mandated keeping sacramental records, and since death/burial doesn't fall in that category, almost no pastors ever kept burial records in the 19th century. In this diocese, you start to run into burial registers in the parishes only in the 1930s. Prior to that, the families kept track of who-was-where in the cemetery. The change in this diocese was probably due more to the bishop insisting on it, since there was no change in Canon Law at that time.

One of my tasks last spring was to photograph all the stones in the long section of St. Michael Cemetery, extending back from the Chapel House. The next section back starts ca. 1915. That means that if Sylvester Christy is not listed on Findagrave at present, he unfortunately has no stone.

Hey, cuz, I've lost your 'puter.
I found a memorial created by you at St Catherines cem and there's no photo. Some lady in Alexandria VA wants a photo of his grave marker, so I'll go up and look for it. But if you have it already, let me know, and save an old lady a trip.

RE: Augustine Christy
Woops! You put Augustine in the wrong St. Pat's. You need to take him out of Newry and put him into the larger St. Pat's in Blair County.

PS: Also "Gallitzin" is spelled with an "in" a the end and not "en."

Where did you get Clarence's birthdate? If you take the age he died and re-calulate it doesn't come out. I know the family Bible was destroyed in a fire shortly after his death, so having to verify the info with other records, had given me 3 different dates/years. I'm trying to eliminate the info to get a clearer picture. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and effort in advance.

Nelson P Wheeler
I am researching the Cannon/Wheeler family. Do you have the full picture of Nelson Wheeler and the Family? I would really like a copy for my files. Thanks for your help. I appreciate your adding his death and that of his wife Eleanor Knox Cannon.
