Bio and Links
Bio Photo Short and sweet:

My health often gets in the way of things but I do check my messages very often and I do my best to maintain current and accurate memorials. (Because of health issues, if I have forgotten to do something I said I'd do, feel free to remind me. I try my best... but I'm only human!)

I send far more edits than transfer requests. This means that I often spend hours looking up extended family and sending those page owners the family links. I also send biographical information, dates, etc. for pages I have no intention of asking for.

To me the important person here is THE DECEASED and that is something we should all remember.

Please do not upload images of my hand written Biographies of the deceased onto other websites. The main reason is that sometimes I make changes and rewrite them, as my research reveals new information. If you upload a static image, or a story under your own name, then I can never edit that to match the current version.

And yes, the other reason is proper credit. If you think credit does not matter, then please, make your own work available and put no stipulations on how or where it is used. Most people who upload other people's work under their own names, never do so.

If you have a question or want help, ask.

Thank you to all of the helpful people here. You truly are angels. 99 percent of the people I have 'met' in my family history research have been wonderful.

To the others: You will catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

RE: Information

What a great article you wrote. Thanks for all that you do for Find A Grave I had access to a lot of old obits over 50 years old. I am trying to follow the guidelines and not put in any living name and only on people that I am related to. I wish there was a way that I could provide young families, that are interested in their families, with old obits that may not have been saved over the years. Sometime we have to be older before coming interested in ancestry and a lot information has been lost.

RE: Elisha Hatch family.
I believe that Hilton is her maiden name and that Whitehouse is the maiden mane of her mother,Mary. Just a hunch but then I feel good about it and they usually pay off close to or right on. Not a terrific way to do research but some cases it works......Peace.....Lawrence

Elisha Hatch family.
T.L.,Lets see if I can correct a couple of things. I do believe that you are correct with Elisha and Rebecca as parents as the names do carry forward etc, so that I will correct even though Experience is also listed with the other parents but no mention of Richard Hiscock.

Experience's mother is listed as both Rebecca Whitehouse and Rebecca Whitehouse Hilton so they both carry forward with parents for both. I tend to lean with Whitehouse Hilton, but will also make a note as such and just maybe someone will have a bit of info to share.

I will redo the memorial to reflect these changes as best as I can. Thanks for the inquiry.

Jane McFadden Hiscock
you asked about sources/documentation for data shown on the memorial for Jane (McFadden) Hiscock. I believe most of it comes from "Vital Records of Old Bristol and Nobleboro: volume 1 and 2, Chrstine Huston Dodge, 1931 & 1947, published under the authority of the Maine Historical Society."

Thanks for the enhancing information.
I have inserted it and let's see what the other page provider has in mind.

RE: Thank you!!
Therissa's stone is one of only a few lying flat on the ground. I did not see any other fragments from her stone, but it looks like it says "John A" at the break. I see from her bio that she had a son named John Arthur, but I don't believe he has a Findagrave memorial.

RE: Thank you!!
Tree Leaf, your message made me laugh. I'm glad you're so tickled to see your ancestor's gravestone. It is laying flat, and was probably missed by others who have photographed this cemetery. This is a historic cemetery, and includes one of the Confederate soldiers executed in the Palmyra Massacre.

I was looking for your Obert and Goebel but I could not find them in my area here.
And I did not see them in the Baden emigration database.

Frankfurt am Main is in Hessen not in Baden.
