My interest in "paying it forward" started after I found a record of one of my ancestors on Find a Grave. This led me on an entirely new branch of genealogical discovery. I soon became a volunteer photo taker and then branched out to photographing entire cemeteries. |
I think it is important to document history and it is unfortunate that many stones are so worn away that they can't be read, or there is other damage to the stone that makes the documentation of that person's history incomplete.
Find a Grave is an astounding phenomenon! Feel free to use photos I have taken. Please ask if you would like a memorial transferred to you for management or tell me if there is additional info I can add to the memorial. My goal is to improve accuracy and to give someone else that needed leg up in their genealogical research.

- Occupation: Blacksmith

- Following were listed in the household:
Mary V. Mallard (age 48), Charley A. Mallard (age 14), Emma B. Mallard (age 11), Ann Netta Mallard (age 10), and Harriet E. Mallard (age 7)

Thanks for the response.
I believe I was asking you if you would put a "NOTE" on Jason to reference Amanda. I could not find anything online to possibly explain relationship.
Or " I can " just transfer to you if you would like. They are not related to my family. Let me know either way.

Don't worry about it. I am hoping to get out that way in the next couple of years to visit the cemeteries for myself and to do some research. However, if you do happen to be in the area and it would not be too much trouble, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much!!!

Hi, I was wondering if you could do me a huge favor. You took a photo of this gravestone in Pine Eden. I realize it is badly worn, but I was wondering if you would mind, sometime when you are in that area, if you could stop by and see if you can read the dates, I would greatly appreciate it. I am not sure whether or not they are possible to read.
I believe There are actually 4 names inscribed on their headstone:
Alva and Amy and two of their children.

I am requesting the transfer of the memorials for:
Bessie Trettin (#89869921
Carl L Trettin (#89869938
Donald L Trettin (#89870245)
This is the sister and her husband and son of my
maternal Grandmother. I realize this is not a direct relationship, however, they are family and families belong together. I would love to manage these memorials and I will be happy to transfer the memorials, in the future, if someone with a direct relationship requests it.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
