Genealogy has become my newest addiction!|
Taphophilia = an abnormal love for graves and cemeteries. The love of walking cemeteries and finding lost relatives and the gravesites of ancestors.
If you've never taken a few moments to spend time in the cemetery...You're really missing out. The peace and tranquility you find in them. Those that have gone before many times have left a final message on their tombstones. These messages are an inspiration and make me feel humbled and blessed! Go ahead...take the time...walk your local cemetery and read their messages and see how they reach out and touch you! You'll be glad you did! (quoted from another find-a-graver)
THE STORY TELLERS
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe.
"When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."
I would prefer that birth/death/marriage certificates not be posted to the memorials I have created. I prefer the space be made available for photos of the person since most of these documents are easily found online and can be transcribed to the bio area of the memorial.
The addition is even less helpful if an edit request is not sent to have the pertinent information added to the memorial. Thanks for your cooperation!!

|cynthia mullens||RE: PFC Gordon Dean Perry photo|
I am in East Oak Grove frequently. I'll stop back by in a week or so (after the weather breaks.....snow storm coming in) & look on the other side of the stone. I will remember where it is because most of the Perrys are in a separate plot & I was excited to finally find Gordon. I thought on the way out that I should have gotten a photo of the face of that statue!
Thanks for your note.

|Doreen Furlong||Clayton D Payne|
Clayton D Payne is buried in the Watertown Cemetery. On his find-a-grave it says his parents are William and Alice Wilson Payne. I have been trying to find another wife for a William F Payne's Father of Clayton and this is the first time I have seen Alice Wilson Payne's name. I called information and they have no listing for Watertown Cemetery. Can you tell me where you found that information about Clayton's parents? Also is Watertown Cemetery very big who do you think would have the records?
Thanks for all you do
|Linda Collins||RE: Nancy Howard Beebe Snow|
Sorry I didn't see your request earlier.
The inscription looks like:
wife of C.P. Snow
June 2, 1823 (or 1873)
Age 32 yrs
10 m 16 d
That's the best I can make out.
|cynthia mullens||RE: Photos you took for me (4)|
I love that cemetery, and find everything by just walking around. Good exercise!
|D Rausch||Old Barker (Goodman) cemetery|
I have tried to locate this cemetery several times when I am in Ohio. I guess I am missing something.
Any hints for someone that is not familiar with the area?
Also, would you consider transferring any of my Racer ancestors to me that are in the Old Barker cemetery. It would be easier to add information to them. Mary and Benjamin are ggggrandparents.
I appreciate any help.
Thanks so much for all your efforts.
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank You Anna. I was not concerned that the memorial was posted as much as I like to see the information be correct for future generations. I sincerely appreciate the quick reply. Your dedicated work is appreciated by many.
