I started researching my family history after my mother passed away in 2011. Fortunately for me she had everything written down so it gave me a good head start. My wife did not have much on her family so I started looking to see how much I could find on her family. I found out early on the only way to do this was to walk the entire cemetery and try to link each person back. Doing it this way I was able to find relatives that I wouldn't have been able find otherwise. Family plots give a lot of clues about the family that are not obvious otherwise. I am happy to add any family information since it makes it easier for others to find the memorial, any bio information should be written so it can be copied over. Please use the edit tab and the Suggest a correction link when sending information or requesting a transfer, it makes it easier and reduces the chance of an error.

Anna Amey I am so sorry I sent you on a wild goose chase for Anna Amey. I'm not sure how I got that mixed up. I really do appreciate you taking the time to look, and I apologize for the mix up. Thanks so much.
RE: A Big Thank You! I am related to the Braniff, Bankert, Hopkins, McQuilken and Oswald families. I will look over all the entries and see if anything needs to be added. I know I definitely need to add my mother.
A Big Thank You! I joined FindAGrave so I could add my relatives to the website. I was waiting for the engraving on my mother's tombstone to be finished before I got started entering. When I logged in I found that you had added all the relatives I had planned on entering. Thank you so much!!! You even had a few I didn't know about. I still need to add my mother.

I've found out more information about Matilda Reese. For a while she's been a big question mark in my family tree. Having tracked down her children's, I've been able to piece together a bit more of her history. Her second husband was my great-grandfather's second wife.
To help anyone else, could you add the following to her bio, please:
Matilda had three husbands. Philip Smith, Francis Snyder and George Reese Sr.
