Bio and Links
I am in search of family history and knowing what of the backgrounds for family members. This all started at my having grandchildren and wanting them to have as much information on their family and where their ancestors hailed from. I believe heritage is important. When I enter cemeteries to take photos of stones, I know there is a real person in there, whether or not they are still breathing. They were born, lived and passed on. What went on in their era, their lives in between those dates recorded on their stones. I know I once read a quip about how we spend our dashes (the dash between birthdate and death date). It's an important matter and I want to make the most of my dash!
I am interested in helping others with their research and photo requests as well. It is the preservation of life and memories and somehow helps us feel connected to those relatives and Grandparents we never got to meet. I love bringing that to life!

Thanks much for the photo. I'm assuming there was no birth/death date or name on the stones? At any rate, I appreciate it. Again, thank you.

RE: Helen Townsend
I think that the ground near her husband's grave was freshly disturbed when I posted my note a year and a half ago. Since then the grass has probably had a good chance to hide the signs of a recent burial. I do not know where her grave is specifically. I had assumed that it was next to her husbands (from the evidence of the freshly processed grave). Here is the link for the offices for the Riverside cemetery. A quick phone call or email should get you the exact location of her grave. Good Luck.{F5BFFA5E-2DD8-4BCD-B8B1-2E540C0C497F}

Is this straightened out now? I am trying to clear up emails before I go south for the winter. Thanks. Mary

RE: Allen Willis
Can you please update the cemetery to the same cemetery as his parents?
Added by K Please provide proof and Memorial numbers. I update many of these each day and those without detail get ignored. Thanks. Mary

RE: Addison Curtiss
I called today and talked to Linda, the other sexton. She had E.L. Curtiss who is Edward Levy, as you said. His father was Levi and mother Grace. Linda said she would go to the cemetery to see what she could find. I asked her to look for Levi and Grace also. Edward did not have a son Levi. Strange that you talked to Amy today. Linda told me she was away and she (Linda) had the paper work that Amy had been working on for you. She said she would call or email me after she went to the cemetery. I'll let you know what I hear.

Thank you for the additional information. I wrote it down and will try to call one of the ladies listed. I'll let you know what, if anything, I find out.
