I have been researching my family history for over 18 years and have found quite a few interesting characters along the way... :)
I spend a lot of free time in cemeteries, not only for my research, but because they are peaceful and very interesting.

I am related to everyone buried in Sand Pond Cemetery (Levy County, Florida), I have many relatives buried in Cedars of Lebanon (Levy County, Florida), Dog Ear (AKA Black Dirt) Cemetery (Marion County, Florida) and Red Level Cemetery (Citrus County, Florida).

I am willing to transfer any Memorials that I create, provided they are not my family members, but that depends on which of my family you are willing to claim. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With the exception of a few family members and the Florida State Hospital memorials, most of my memorials are created from the photographs that I take. I enjoy adding the photos more than anything. It's my belief that a family member who can't travel will find these memorials and be able to see their loved ones graves.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have received the following message in regards to the Florida State Hospital memorials:

FLORIDA STATE HOSPITAL CEMETERIES 1-4

Why do you list all the people in the above cemeteries with a photo of the current in-use cemetery of today???? It's misleading. Cemeteries 1-4 are 4 separate cemeteries. The people buried there are lost, there is no way to know who is who and posting them with photo's of a clean maintained cemetery is just misleading. The people are not taken care of in cemeteries 1-4. There should be 5 separate cemeteries on Find A Grave for these cemeteries.

Since this member leaves no way for me to respond, I am compelled to add my reply here:

Yes, the cemeteries at Florida State Hospital are separate cemeteries and my entries for Cemetery #3 started as it's own cemetery. However, the decision was made to combine the cemeteries into 1 cemetery due to the fact that it's easier to search the FSH cemeteries as 1 entity rather than 5. The cemetery/grave locations are listed in the "plot" field for each entry I have done. As for the photo, the current photo is shown by default.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Due to me duplicating memorials because of several Burial Unknown's, I have been trying to double check every entry, but some may slip through. Please tell me if I've created a duplicate or if I am in error on any of the memorials I create. & PLEASE don't get upset if I duplicate a memorial that is SPELLED WRONG or has misinformation on the original, let me know I duplicated and contact the manager of the original for corrections. Once the original is corrected, I will delete the duplicate. Since 95% of my memorials are from photos I take, if I duplicate a memorial that is not listed under the same name/information as in the photo of the headstone, please let me know and I will attach the photo to the correct memorial.

Thanks to all at Find A Grave!! Ya'll Rock!!!

RE: Dora E Moore Oliver
Dora, I was researching for someone and discovered this problem. I honestly have forgotten the surname I was searching...please, refresh my memory on that. Yes, it will be just fine if you transfer it to me and when I get the surname I will continue the search and record it. Thank you so much, Linda

Dora E Moore Oliver
Please review the date on the stone is either in error or this is not the correct Dora E Oliver. 1900 Census records her DOB as Nov 1877 and she is married to Lonnie F Oliver with these children. The headstone here records a birth very close to the DOB of her children. I imagine it was just engraved in error as this is around the area that Dora and Lonnie lived.

RE: Stricklands @ Stage Stand, Homosassa
My grandchildren are the great-grandchildren of Joseph Lee Strickland. 1888 by all records and 1885 by tombstone. Do you or anyone in your family have information on the parents of Joe's father, Henry Clay Strickland born June 19, 1845 in Georgia. From all census it seems they were both born in Georgia. If you transfer the memorials that you offered, I will add what info I have. Thank you for contacting me. Mary Ann

RE: Joseph Lawton Goethe 141069897
The birth date was confusing for me too, until I figured out the family connections from the grave marker. Perhaps whomever had the marker erected confused him with his brother, John H Morgan Goethe (1862-1926). Both have the same year of birth and death on the marker. I believe that Joseph died in 1909 (according to family trees on Ancestry.com), but have no definitive documentation. He supposedly died with nephew, William Edward Goethe, when their boat burned off of Anclote, FL on 31 Dec 1909 (Find A Grave Memorial# 21412897)

Hi Camilla, they are distant cousins of mine, I believe 3rd (the one through marriage). I will gladly take ownership of their memorials if you think it best. Maybe another family member closer in relationship will come along in the future and I can hold onto them until then. Whatever you decide. Thank you for the work you've done :) RC

Gadsden Hospital for insane
Hi there,

I have a question. You have someone buried there that is listed as JB Haynes. Can you tell me where you got this info.? I am looking for a TB Haynes and have some information on her but I cannot find her as being buried there. I do have a Florida death record listing her as having died there in 1923. Any help would be great! Thanks, Susan
