The photo here is a pretty good metaphor. I would be the duck on the far left. I believe in Random Acts of Kindness of all kinds. |
I have a virtual cemetery for memorials that could use some tokens of remembrance. The contents change periodically and I try to keep the number between 10-15, but sometimes it's larger. I also have virtual cemeteries for deceased firefighters, mostly from Michigan, and a few police officers. Please visit them if you can.
I have added photos of both tombstones and people to memorials created by others. Between Dec 2-4, 2013 I also deleted 40 of my memorials that became duplicates when two cemeteries were merged. I didn't particularly enjoy doing that but mine were the later entries. I will not, however, delete memorials that I have created in the correct cemetery in favor of Burial Unknowns with a prior creation date, as the FAQs for Burial Unknowns clearly state that the memorial created in the correct cemetery has precedence.
I try to follow these guidelines:
"Assume good faith."
"Use good manners."
"Don't bite the newcomers."
Walking in cemeteries is becoming difficult so I am currently adding memorials from a transcription of Oak Ridge Cemetery, Woodhaven, Michigan and from The Wyandotte Death Index through 1962.

I called Ferndale Cemetery... they do have Susan James there. She was interred in 1935. They were very helpful and if you are interested in finding her grave, visit the office M-S 10-4 and they will be happy to show you where she is buried. They suggest you call first to make sure someone is available.
Ferndale Cemetery: (734) 282-3145

I appreciate your kindness to transfer Emma temporarily to me. Since she is merely a 1st cousin twice removed and I didn't know her I don't feel justified to keep her so I have returned her to her rightful owner.
I did write a short bio, more about her husband Emerson than Emma. It might help to someday reconnect them. Maybe Emerson was not Catholic so could not be buried at St Mary's.
Thanks for your kindness.

I recall seeing this dupe. I did tell the other person but never heard back and put it out of mind. (Almost forget to reply to you also). I don't know what else to do.

Hi, if I'm not mistaken your great-great-grandfather was Francis
Marion Wampler, (1860-1944). His great-grandmother, your five
greats, Elizabeth (Steffy) Wampler, (1770-1856), was the sister of my 4 greats grandfather Henry Steffy, (1778-1859). This means
you're my sixth cousin once removed.
Your 5 greats grandfather Hans George Wampler Jr., (1765-1851), was also the son of Hans George Wampler Sr. and Elizabeth Steffy,
an aunt of the above mentioned Henry Steffy and Elizabeth (Steffy) Wampler. So your five greats grandparents were 1st cousins, with the common connection being through the Steffy's.
You might also be interested to know that Emmons Cemetery, in Lawrence Co., IL, where your five greats-grandparents are buried,
and some of my ancestors, is on land which formerly belonged to my grandparents, until the early 1970s, and only a short distance from their home, now greatly changed, where I spent many hours
of my childhood and youth. I've been to the cemetery many times over a span of some 50 + years, though probably a babe-in-arms
on my earliest visits.
