The memorials I have created are my attempt to get the information on Find-a-Grave with the hope that others will contribute to their accuracy. All information I have posted on the memorials has been gathered from the headstone, other contributors, books or websites I have found noting such. While under my custody, each memorial is considered by me as a "work-in-progress" waiting to be claimed by a family member.|
If I have added and still manage a memorial for one of your family members, just let me know and I will transfer it to you. Of the memorials I manage, there are only a few that I have created for my own ancestors. I would love to have the opportunity to reunite the memorial with a family member. After the transfer has been made to you and you find that you are unable to manage it for any reason, feel free to transfer it back to me and I will hold it until another family member comes along.
Many times I take several pictures of a grave site or monument to show close-up or expanded views with the hope that the viewer can see the general site, inscription or the entire monument. If you don't want a photograph shown that I've posted to the memorial, please let me know and I will delete it.
While I'm at the cemeteries taking pictures, I try to also update the GPS coordinates of the grave site (if I have cell phone service). I have noticed that many times the coordinates will be off by as much as 50 feet or more. So, please use this tool as a 'general reference'. The coordinates will get you close but it may not be the exact location.
Feel free to use any of the photos I have taken for your use - you have my permission. There is no need to give credit to me if you choose to use the photos.

Sorry...disregard. I couldn't find it on the app so I thought it was gone. Good news, it's still there!
|Margaret Wade||RE: Lamott Cemetery|
Jim they removed the photo! Can you email it to me? Margaretswade@gmail.com
he was my gggrandfather, born in galway, ireland, came to the united states aboard the ship centurion july 11 1848 and traveled to oswego ny. he was joined by mary jane mccabe who arrived on board the same ship (centurion) 22 jan of 1839. they were married on may 30 1849 in oswego at the catholic church. they traveled to chillicothe, settled in to raise a family of 5. he enlisted for the union, FEDERAL army (not an ohio unit) in july of 1861 and served his three year enlistment. two weeks after his discharge in july 1864 he enlisted as a substitute in the FEDERAL cavalry (Co H) and took a minie ball through the hip which exited his groin at third winchester (called by the south opequon creek) on sept 19, 1864 and was discharged as unfit for further duty and died in chillicothe in 1870 of that wound which never healed. I have his service record from the national archives. He was not colored troops, being irish and was one of some few to serve and re-enlist. he was eligible for a pension, $2.00 a month, and of course a military headstone.

Thanks for catching the cemetery issue. I think I have all of them in the correct Mt Pleasant in Kingston now. As for WOP's real burial place I had already noted in the Bio that that was not his actual burial site. There is also another memorial for his "burial" site with all the others in Europe. I had already linked all three by connecting each one to his parents... findagrave seems to think they are brothers instead of the same person with three memorial spots... I have also updated the death place to match the official memorial from Arlington National, of which I have no control over. If it is still incorrect have the person fix it for the main one and I will reflect it.

I just found your memorial for James Charles Harper in Bethel Cemetery. Wondering if there are other Harpers in there that you have not yet memorialized. Several of my somewhat distant cousins, including Robert Harper, 1819-1900, father of James Charles, and his two wives, Mary Gleasen/Glissen, 1817-1862 and Marinda Byron, 1835-1903 are supposed to be there.
|Donna White||re: Henry Hall and margaret Hall|
