Bio and Links
Bio Photo I feel these memorials should be maintained by family whenever possible. With that in mind, if I am not related to the person, I will be happy to transfer the memorial.

If I have a picture on the memorial you want to use, feel free, you don't need to ask.

I surely don't understand some contributors that hold your families memorials "Hostage", If you are not related then "Give it up", I absolutely believe in KARMA...(and Ghost) but that's another story...

I spend most of my free time working on my Family history and find roaming old cemeteries is amazing. Some of the headstones I see are nearly unreadable, some are eroded to the point they can no longer be read. If we don't try to preserve these at least by photos, they will be lost forever, no one will ever know who they were. By taking photos and sharing the info, maybe someone who is searching will find who they are seeking.

I'm back in Texas now but spent a few months in Pennsylvania. I found the cemeteries there are
unique and some so very old. I loved it and the trees and grass, lol everything was so GREEN!

Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on. Cherished memories will never fade, because ones loved is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart,for as long as there is a memory, they live with in our heart.

RE: # 86861639 Jane Hart
I did a little looking on Ancestry. Found a death certificate for Jane Hart born in and died in Fayette county, PA, died at South Union Twp. Some of the writing in very poor. Including the birth year, they have 1831 but doing the math (death age 62) born March 16, 1851 died Oct 8, 1913. Buried at Sandy Hill.
Father's last name as Grinn(I think) Grimm, first they shown Dawed ?? David?? does not have a name for the mother. It says she is a widow. Information supplied by Benjamin Hart.
Hope this gives you some clues.

RE: Memorial# 98101616
Hey, just a quick followup. I found two marriages for John in Cedar Creek, Scott, AR. The first was to Martha A Singleton, on 23 Aug 1885. She was born in 1867 in Illinois. The second was to Mary A Hansard, in the same city/county on 12 Jun 1904. This is 2 years after the death date for Mary. So my theory is that Mary A Singleton is the mother of the children up until her death (maybe 1902), so if the headstone is accurate 1867-1902 that would be Martha. She is presumably mother of Thomas William (b. 1886), James M (b. 1888), and Pearl (b. 1890). Mary A. Hansard (or Mollie, in future censuses) married John 2 years after the death date on the stone, so she must be elsewhere and I don't know at this point where/when she died. She was born 1871 in Alabama. She would be mother of John Quinton (b. 1905), Ruth (b. 1907) and Etta/Ettie (b. 1909). Are you on Ancestry? Even if not, you should be able to look at my family tree (Christopher Banks). If not, let me know your email address and I'll give you access. I'm trying hard for clarity, but these Lairds are especially difficult! Hope this helps...

RE: Memorial# 98101616
Hi there! Thanks for the feedback on Mary A. Hansard Laird. My relatives were Lards, and it has been the dickens trying to get them straight since they do seem to be related to Lairds, and there were so many of them. I'm beginning to think my ties to Arkansas are not strong, more centered on northern Alabama (esp. lauderdale co.). However, I found Martha A on family trees. There seems to be some confusion about a Martha A. Singleton who may have married a different John. The 1900 Fed Census of Cedar, Scott, AR Dist 109 shows Martha A born May 1867 ILL. I think this is the Singleton, as I look more closely. But in 1920 the census shows Mollie. For Mary A. Hansard, both the AR death index and AR county marriages show birth as about 1871. Check this out:
Also, you might look at F.A.G. #35522992. Confusing, no? You are probably wise not to change anything until it becomes clearer. Good luck! Any Lard relatives in Hardin TN or Lauderdale AL? My great grandmother (wife of James Perry Banks) was Mary Lou/Luella Lard.

thank you
Thank you for the extra effort you take. It is a rare, and valuble, contribution to find the obituary cited in a find-a-grave record. It adds a personal touch to the information we gather, and shows a level of caring on your part. Warmest regards, Jeff

Your requests plus FG links allowed me to identify the third person sharing the bench with Paul and Verna. I have made the links in verna's memorial.
It would be great to get the Findagrave info for Edna's second and third husbands!

Edits to Verna Gray Memorial
You requested that I add some biographical info to Verna's memorial. Do you have the location of her mother's grave? If so, is it on Findagrave? I could then link them that way.

RE: Steve Ann Akin # 123904902
Thank you for what you do. No, there's no need to transfer the memorial to me. I can't remember exactly what I said, but I might have listed Yeager simple for future genealogy purposes. Her maiden name was Akin. She married Ed Yeager (my father). They divorced and she married Harold Shappell (no children from that marriage). She died with his name, even thought they also divorced years before she died. If it seems to much to list a "divorced" name, I understand. But her children (my brother Ford Yeager and I, Day Yeager)have a different last name than hers when she died, so I just mentioned it for someone trying to follow a family tree link. Make sense? Please do as you see fit.
