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.

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.

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."

Thanks for the information. Do you know where Florence Ralston is buried? Did Lydia have a married name?

RE: Rachel M. Ralston
My grandmother's sister married Guy F. Brady. I never knew who his parents were. Recently, a man in Georgia by the name of George A. Peterson told me that Guy's mother was Dorothy E. Brady, daughter of Conrad Brady. Apparently she wasn't married to the boy's father and gave him her last name (Brady). Later she married Hopewell P. Ralston. His wife had died previously and he had a child or two. I was trying to get his first wife's name. That's why I was looking at women with the last name of Ralston. If you know her name was Flora, do you have the dates?

Mary (Magee) Huff
Hi, I am doing some research on the Huff family of Warren County, Pennsylvania, and I had a question about Mary Magee Huff (Find A Grave Memorial#: 80198060), wife of Benjamin Huff. I was wondering what your source was for her maiden name. The memorial states that she was the son of Thomas Magee and sister of James Magee, and I was wondering if you could point me to a genealogy or county history book that mentions it. I really would like to verify her maiden name, and any help you could give me would be very much appreciated! Thank you!
