Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the archivist in my family and have enjoyed researching my family genealogy off and on for the past several years. My favorite hobbies are scrapbooking, photography and walking through old cemeteries. I love the history one finds there. I am currently making heritage albums for my siblings and children. During my research I came across a photo of my great grandmother's grave marker. She lives across the country from me and I would never have seen it had it not been for a volunteer who photographed it. I want to give that gift back and am honored to volunteer for findagrave.com.

Dear Ancestor,

Your tombstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist,
You died and I was born.
Yet, each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our Blood contracts and beats a pulse,
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago,
Spreads out among the ones you left,
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew,
That someday I would find this spot
and come to visit you.

RE: Lloyd Seeley
Glad I could help. My wife does scrap booking too.
I have one more wider angle shot, send me your email and I will send it. The only issue is I shot it looking back into the garden, so it is upside down.

Hello! I was very happy to see this photo of Ed as I had never seen it before. Ed was my father and I guess that makes us cousins! Ed and my mom never married, but it sure is kewl to know I have family out there. I hope to hear back from you.

RE: Anna Stanford
You're welcome Carol! I'm happy to have been able to find her stone. The section she's in does not have a lot of grave markers.

Best Regards,

Rick Weaver

Query:
Looking for any information on Henry Thomas Hart, born Feb. 5th
1838, he was postmaster in Clifton, Texas between 1881 and 1886. He
was buried in the Old Clifton Cemetery after a bout whith Typhoid Fever.
Have been unable to locate any information reguarding him or his
family. His wife was Harriet Lavina Tennison Hart and their children
were; George Washington Hart, J.W.F.M.A.S. Hart(?), Ebenezer Hart, James
W.S. Hart, Mary Elizabeth Hart, Squire Henry Hart, Martha M. Hart, and
Emma Jane Valentine Hart. Anyone having information reguarding any
of the above PLEASE contact me at okquail@ptsi.net.

I found this info online by typing a search for Henry Thomas Hart, Clifton, postmaster.

C,
There is another fellow who contacted me last week about Henry, I gave him this same info but dont know if he has contacted the email given. It is old so might not be valid anymore.
I will give you his email so you two can confer.
I am sure he wont mind.

Hope this helps

RE: Tacy Photos
I clicked on the Volunteer photo of Charles Tacy and noticed all 5 photos were basically the same marker your 2 color photos were the same exact photo, the other less color ones, 2 are same photo from 2 different people. I'm guessing there was an attempt to FILL the Limit of 5 Photos per memorial. At this point, no one can add a photo unless it gets sponsored.
Not my buisness, just being inquisitive, in case there is a new way of doing things.

Just being inquisitive... Why all the duplicate photos on the Tacy memorial page?

Daniel Weaver
Do you have any more details on the Daniel Weaver family, father perhaps? The cemetery sextant says they have no record of Daniel but there are many large Weaver monumnets that Daniel may be next to.

RE: Eddie Paquette
Hello, Carol. Eddie never actually got to Korea. He was the Army's number one deep sea diver and spent all of his time beyond basic training (Ft. Jackson, S.C.) at Ft. Eustis, Virginia. His unit was the 110th Harbor Craft and Marine Maintenance Battalion. He hated the Army (as all of us draftees did) because he felt he had served his country in WW II and should not have been called up for Korea.

Thanks for the info on Eddie. We served in the Army together during the Korean War and lived together in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1955. He loved his marina just south of Navy Pier.
