"I will show you fear in a handful of dust." T.S. Eliot|
We are not so much afraid of dying, as we are of no one remembering we existed at all.
We only walk this earth because of the people before us. Every name is a memory to a life, not just a branch in a tree. Sometimes all that echoes through time is a name, a date, a relationship, a headstone. But bringing those things together here is remembering the person who lived, and I am proud to be a part of this community of volunteers who spend their free time to send the message "you have not been forgotten"
Still active as of November 2014. If you have any information to add to any memorials I have created please let me know but use the EDIT- SUGGEST A CORRECTION feature. Please also use this feature when inquiring about a specific memorial, the comments section below is not helpful in directing me with a link to see what you are talking about.
PROCESSING EDITS: I know about the feature, but I don't blindly click all. Have patience, I will get to it, but I do check- I will also look for an obituary for you if its here in Oregon. So have patience, check back when you get the email, it might be worth a look.
DO YOU KNOW? Find A Grave will automatically process all untouched edits after 3 weeks. Yep. that contributor who's been ignoring your requests for years didn't just finally get with the program.
DO YOU KNOW? if you mess up a submission you can go to your own edits page, use the drop down menu to find edits you have submitted, find the edit you did and delete and redo if it hasn't been processed. Pretty Nifty if you ask me. Edits on Find A Grave are finally happening and they have fixed some of the flaws from the initial launch.
PHOTOS: I took the photo to help you! If you would like any of the photos I have taken for your own family tree, you are welcome to them. If its a family photo I added though, please contact me! I don't mind sharing, I have a public tree on ancestry.com that I will give you directions to for more photos (if I have them). Our ancestors should be remembered by all who want to preserve a piece of who they were. My collection is the work of many who believed in saving photos of cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents they never knew and then taking the time to share them with me. As we pass through this world, I feel better knowing my ancestors wont disappear and pictures forgotten if multiple people from all over have the key.

Walked through the snow and found Bertha's headstone. Apparently she is the only one in the family with a headstone, as the rest of the family is not listed on either cemetery reading (1930 DAR reading and 2001). Of course, I couldn't tell for sure with all the snow. :) Will have to check back after the snow clears - and possibly pull a lot card from the microfilm at the library.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for finding & posting the photos, the parents names are a blessing. I am searching for 6 Betts women from Crawford County PA, they were not named anywhere as daughters of Reason Betts (shown in census before 1850).
Jesse Webb's mother also married Thomas Yokes--the family I am tracing at the moment. Just searching for remote clues.
BUT the reason for my note is the statements you made about being remembered. Brought tears to my eyes...just thought you would like to know that you are appreciated!
|Bill||Sarah C Miller - memorial 93266944|
Memorial 93266944 shows 4 Jan 1919 as the date of Sarah Miller's death. I have been unable to confirm the date or place of death from any other source. Can you provide any additional information.

|Lolita Velezlolita||Henrici clan|
Erin: are you a kin to the Henrici clan? We are a great grandson of Henry Henrici and are trying to find some information.
|Marlayne Boblett||Boblett/Bargeman family|
Erin: I have come across some additional documents on the Boblett family. I've made note that Walter died in Napa, California, but his ashes were transferred to Edward L. Boblett in Prescott, Arizona.
Also have a Creamted/Interred Human remains removal from Napa, California to Edward L. Boblett in Prescott, AZ for Minnie J. McMahan that I've added in editing bios for them.
Thank you for all you've done in the way of information etc. for these families.

|Martin Burrell||Edward Henry Mollett - FAG# 93267051|
I have sent changes to you for this important character and I am hoping that he and his wife Daisy will again be able to relate some of their past through their memorials.
Thank You, Martin Burrell
Edward Henry and Daisy Ione [Gruber] Mollert gave birth to three children in Minnesota, Minnie, Cecil and Richard Mollert.
Richard was born on 23 Jul 1907, in Ottawa, Le Sueur, Minnesota. He died on 23 July 1997, in Alameda, Alameda, California and his remains were cremated and interred in Cypress Lawn Memorial Park, Colma, San Mateo, California. Find A Grave Memorial# 87713018.
Nice job on your pictures! You done good. I don't think I could have done better myself?!
Those shiny ones are a pain to get a good picture sometimes. They are like a mirror and all kinds of stuff reflects in the surface. Sometimes you can get a good angle and get a pretty good shot but sometimes no matter which angle you try to turn at something keeps making a reflection in the stone and messing up the picture.
That just reminded me of something you said quite a long time ago that really helped me. Not sure why that stuck in my head so tightly? I have such a lousy memory anymore.
You said that sometimes you twist and turn in all kinds of contortions to try to block the sun to keep the picture from being half sun and half shade which just does not look good at all.
When you said that my thought was "whaaaaaat?"
I tried it and have been doing that ever since.
I was going to thank you for that and have always kept forgetting to do it. I used to go back to a grave an hour later or whatever to hope that maybe the stone was either in the sun or out of it.
You are welcome to use the photo that I took of your relative's grave marker.
