Bio and Links
Bio Photo "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 September 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 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.

RE: George Wyman #85000885
Thank you - I appreciate learning more about the "how to's" of Find A Grave workings. I will be going back to hunt further, including looking for the correct stone and for his wife Sarah. I will keep an eye out for other Wymans as well. I didn't have my foil with me that day so will definitely try that next. I am a firm believer in the do-no-harm/leave-no-trail methods.
I am also working on gathering info on where records may be located for many cemeteries in the area so will try that direction too.

George Wyman #85000885
Hi! I'm assuming that if I used the edit button on this memorial to suggest a correction that the message would not go to you since you don't manage this memorial? I'm still learning some of the nuances of this site so I'd love to know if that's an accurate assumption. If not, please let me know how to do that and route it elsewhere.
The note you left on this photo request suggests that perhaps this marker needed another look. I believe you are correct. I stopped by this cem on my way home from somewhere, the sun was going down and I didn't have my "toolkit" with me. However, I sat and studied it, ran my fingers over the letters, tried to use the shadows. I believe this stone isn't even George Wyman's. It is very worn but I believe that there are letters in the name that do not fit. I've spent enough time with various types of markers and I am pretty confident that the last name on the stone ends in "H" not "N" and there seems to be at least one other discrepancy. I will go back in the next couple weeks. Just thought I'd let you know for now. I'll also see if I can find the correct marker. This cemetery is larger so it might take a couple trips. Thanks! Susan

RE: Elizabeth Hensley

This is what I found regarding Elizabeth Hensley. You are correct that she most likely would have been buried in Missouri - where a majority of my relatives are buried. This shows she was born about 1788 and died between 1830-1840 - so no longer on the census. This shows her as the daughter of Samuel and Frances Ware Livingston - which does fit in with my great great grandmother Eliza Holmes' history. Eliza Holmes Albright.

It does get very confusing. Thanks for the information.

RE: Elizabeth Hensley
You don't have to be rude. I'm simply trying to find my ancestors. I'm actually shocked anybody reads messages.

I know not everyone is on here. I'm actually not stupid. Thanks for your reply.

I copied the survey from microfilm back in the 80s. My computer is down & I'm at the library. Will be happy to share what I have when I get a new computer. Linda

re: the Brindells
THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I was about ready to delete the memorials, as what you said made sense. I HATE duplicates and deal with a man here that has "mass uploaded" one of our biggest cemeteries. We work well together, and I fill in lots of info for him. When I am searching for relatives of the folks of the photos I uploaded, I find a duplicate memorial quite often. He has explained to me that some folks just make a memorial with "burial unknown", if it does not list a cemetery in the obit, and therefore tons of duplicates end up out there. I thought that because I had SEARCHED and SEARCHED FIRST to make sure that there wasn't a memorial already out there, that I was "good to go". Thanks for filling me in, and thank you so much for the photos. I changed Sr's name to Franklin A. and entered the correct cemetery, I HOPE. I appreciate your input and the photos. Thanks again and God bless!
