Robert L James and Ollie Mae James are buried in the New Union not the old Union in Lincoln, Logan, Illinois. I should add them, as well, as Kenneth Ernest James and Mary James, my grandmother and grandfather.
So you said you were 2nd cousin of my mother's, how is that: I am only asking because it is rare that I find anyone in that line.
Charles Marion Terrill =7814491 Hi Barbara, Thank you so very much for sending me the obituary from the 1945 Bland Courier. I am his last surviving grandchild. I met him when he came to California to visit 3 of his children and 2 of his grandchildren. Your efforts were beyond "the call of duty." I will share it with family. Deepest thanks, Shirley Stanton
Thank you for your kind welcome. I will try to learn more about the system to be more helpful to other researchers. I just started on findagrave in December, although I have been researching my family for over 20 years, with varied success.
Since I retired in September, I was hoping to get back into genealogy, and having used findagrave, I wanted to pay back the favors I found through it. I have spent quite a bit of time in cemeteries looking for family, so it isn't really a new activity. I will eventually add my family information to it.
As to adding photos, I took a digital image from my camera and moved it to my computer desktop. To add a photo, I went to the cemetery page for Resurrection, chose photo requests, clicked on fulfill, and added the photo by clicking on it. Then you can add info about the photo by selecting the last box. I write down the information at the grave because I never know if it will be legible from the photo.
I know the photo wasn't the best. I had tried to wipe mud off of it. I will try again later after we haven't had so much rain.
NANCY POINTER Hello I have many Nancy Pointer's in my records. William Pointer's daughter, Nancy Pointer, married Samuel West. She was born abt. 1810. William is my direct line thru daughter Jane. Nancy Pointer who married James Jett was not born until 1859, so she was eliminated. Leaving this Nancy Pointer who married Stephen Branson. I have seen group sheets listing her as a daughter of my William Pointer, but that is impossible because she was born in 1824, and William died in 1820. I also have other Nancy Pointers who married and remained in Kentucky. Hope this helps.
Find A Grave Memorial# 133453385 I submitted an edit for Sophia J Obrock. She was the daughter of Frederick Scholl and Antonia (nee Weber) Scholl. This is per Sophia's MO death certificate #13512 and an obituary I found for her father in The Saint Louis Republic, Feb 1902. (Antonia Weber is the sister to my gg-grandfather, Theodore Weber.) Thank you for correcting the info on Sophia's page. Kathy Ziha
