Bio and Links
Bio Photo I came across find a grave while looking into my ancestry.
Some photos may have additional notes in the Caption, usually plot or family information, so be sure to check it out.

Please let me know of any corrections, additions or transfer requests through the edit button on the memorial.

I do enjoy the walks through the cemeteries, the research, the data entry and linking relatives.

Thank you to all the volunteers here on Find A Grave, your work is invaluable and appreciated.

I found this online and wanted to share:

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone

The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone

It reaches out to all who care
For us to late to mourn

You did not know I would exist
You died and I was born

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone

Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many 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: Edits
That is fine. I just found a man yesterday that did not know they existed and he had been on as long as I had. I did not know they existed either!!! Nobody told me about them and I am not that curious of a person so did not find them until one day I was looking around after 10 years of being a member. So, I have found some others that didn't know they were there either.

RE: Worthy Gannett Spencer, Ohio
I would very grateful if you could send me the articles about the Gannett and Humphrey families. I am currently gathering as much information as I can on that side of our family. Thank you Pattie!
Looking forward to seeing them!

Worthy Gannett Spencer, Ohio
Hi Patty, just wanted to make a correction on a memorial you manage. Worthy Gannett was married to Mary Alice Martin Brown (she was formally married to Charles O. Brown of Grand Rapids, Michigan). Worthy lived in Grand Rapids and met and married Mary. They had one daughter together, Mary Alice Gannett and Mary Martin Brown had two children from her previous marriage (Celia Blanche Brown, and Edwin F. Brown) They all moved to Spencer, Ohio where Worthy H. Gannett's family was from. Worthy, according to census records continued to travel. I am still working on records of when his wife died. 1900 and 1910 census indicated that Mary Alice or Alice Gannett, his daughter born 1892, was staying with her Aunt and Uncle (Franks) in Spencer. Sarah Humphrey was Worthy's sister. She was born Sarah Gannett and married James Humphrey. She died in 1929 from complications of a burn sustained from lighting a gas stove. Her parents are listed as Alvin and Mary(stewart)Gannett.(death record) Thanks for putting up the page! If you need any further info please let me know. Erika Gallatin (2x great granddaughter-in-law of Mary Alice Martin Brown Gannett

Thanks Patty, same here!

RE: Knowles Cemetery
Why would anybody even care about how many memorials you manage? That's just petty. If anything it just shows your dedication and hard work. It should be appreciated, not "blasted".

RE: Knowles Cemetery
OK thanks. I don't know if the new edit system allows for deleting memorials automatically if there isn't a response, but that would be nice. It irritates me when people just blatantly ignore requests when all they want is the numbers.
Thanks for your input Pattie!
