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 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.
|NL Nuttall||RE: Albert H and Bertha Neal info|
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.

I will write myself a note to add her husband. (sometimes I have to make a note to read my notes lol) I know what you mean about bringing them to life. I am on ancestry and after I learned a lot about my mother's history as a kid my heart is sad for her. She never talked about certain things, she had 11 aunts and uncles and seeing their pictures makes me feel closer to her side of the family. Thanks, Kathy

|Diann O||need help finding|
I am trying to update some records. I have been told by family his children that my uncle is buried in D section Plot 342 grave 2,3,or 4. I have searched all the ways I can possibily think of. His name is Garlon Monroe Holloway He sometimes went by GM. His birth date was 01/10/1922 and death date was 11/11/1998. His wife is now buried beside him but all I have on her is her name Phyllis. This is in the Oak Ridge Cemetery in Michigan in Wayne County. Thanks Diann

Hello, Pearl Delavern was my great Aunt. She married Percy Delavern. She was born Pearl M. Lezotte. Next to her is my grandmother, Leona Loretta Moss(nee Lezotte)her sister. Now, I do have some records of her name spelled Delevern, but since it is on her gravestone as Delavern I stick with that spelling. If you would like me to post her husbands' picture with the others I will be happy to. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.
