|Bio and Links|
When my daughter was assigned a classroom project of "Who am I?" while in school, the internet was extremely young and no really easy way of filling in your ancestors other than questioning the living or hours ensconced in the library or local LDS family center. By questioning me and my parents she sparked the ember that would grow and grow in both myself and my mother.|
When I discovered Find A Grave and its wealth of information, I was in heaven. Many of my ancestors I had no idea where they were buried. Now a whole new world was opening up.
I have since become a contributor and photographer. When I go to the cemetery to fulfill a photo request, I take extra photos of the surrounding plots. It is my fervent hope to one day have the majority of this cemetery documented and photographed.
Anyone wishing to use my photos may do so. My only request is to please give Find A Grave a mention in your use of the photo. Without this website, the photo wouldn't be there.
Also, I am not one of those contributors who will not transfer a memorial strictly within the guidelines. If you have a legitimate connection, just let me know what it is. I am not a numbers hog. If I accidently duplicate an existing memorial, please let me know, I will remove it.

|Terry Dorough Fogleson||RE: Dewitt Frazier|
You are quite welcome! I find that many of my roadblocks from years back, are beginning to clear up thanks to more records becoming available and to those who ask for corrections on many of those records. The transcribers (I'm one too) sometimes make mistakes and it is caught later. Thank you for being a Find a Grave contributor. I really appreciate you!
|Anita||Marie Trottain Bouchard|
Thank you for the note! I took his edit at face value, but after researching it further, I've deleted the death year and middle name. It does look like he was combining Marie Trottain and Marie-Madeleine Laporte.
Also, I found a PRDH record for Marie-Madeleine Laporte with her death and burial info, so have added her to Find A Grave and linked her to Michel. Unfortunately, there wasn't a death listing for her first husband, Martin Fouquet or their children.

Hi Chris, I transferred these memorials before seeing the edits that you have submitted, so you'll need to change the last name for Jean. On Louise, the last name is supposed to be the last name they were known by, so it would just be Mateau rather than Migneault Mateau. However, if the last marriage didn't have any children, you should be ok to leave her last name as Migneault... Thanks

|Robert DeVowe||RE: #141975474 Jacqueline Leger Mallet|
I entered Jacqueline in my data base in 2008 and at this point can not tell you where I got the info, but know it is not my original research.
I have checked Rootsweb, Ancestry and the French site Geneanet and in all date bases Courgeon is the location that out numbers Courgeout by vast numbers. Also checked LDS catalog, that did not help either.

Sorry about that. It is removed.
|Jane||Isabella Horne in Yorktown Cemetery, Delaware Co., Indiana|
I was at the Yorktown Cemetery today and note that there are actually 2 Isabella Hornes buried in the Cemetery--Isabella Horne (d. 1896), wife of Dr. John Horne), and Isabella Balingall Horne (d. 1854), daughter of J. & I.B. Horne. I believe that one of the headstone photos posted on the memorial for Isabella Horne #68597143 is incorrect.

You're welcome. Glad I could help.
|rockthehouse||RE: Billy Ford|
I have taken and posted new photos of Billy Ford's grave site. A permanent marker was recently installed.
I haven't tried that yet. Does it say it checks for originals? I'll have to check that out. Well I guess it's still up to us to check when we make memorials in the meantime. Thanks for taking care of it. :)

|John Merwin||RE: Findagave Bussey|
Now that I know who he is, I went back and easily found his marker, as shown on Findagrave. I saw it yesterday but didn't know he was the husband of the person I was looking for. In any case, her marker is definitely not there. Perhaps one was never set (wouldn't be the first time in my searches) or maybe she was buried in his grave. Other possibility is that she was buried with her own family line elsewhere in the cemetery.
