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.

My family names are: Nichols, Driggers, Dyess, Dias, Shipp, Lanier, Strawn, Henson, Bailey, Bradley, Williams, Peterson, Young, Pendarvis, Hiers, Post, and many more. 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:

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. 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!!!

Greetings, thank you very much for the transfer. I'm still looking for Matilda's mother, but I'll be able to link her when I find her. Have a great day! Amy

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

Thanks for the transfer. I wasn't going to bother writing up a bio for her, but since you transferred her to me, I tried to do her memorial proud. Sweet of you to leave flowers as a sort of good-bye. I will tend her memories well. --Kim in Indiana

RE: James Simms #96866204
Yes. I find him in the 1870 and 1880 census with his parents Joseph and Francis. In the 1870 census he is listed a James A Simms. 1870 census shows it to be Saint Augustine, St. Johns County and the 1880 census is St. Johns County.

RE: Pvt Henry Parker # 134613514
Thanks for your diligence! I was wondering why some documentation was not required when asking for these relationship changes. Here's what I know about my great, great, great grandmother's brother, Henry:
- The New York State Archives; Albany, New York; Town Clerks´ Registers of Men Who Served in the Civil War, ca 1861-1865; Collection Number: (N-Ar)13774; Box Number: 56; Roll Number: 30 lists Private Henry Parker of Romulus, Co. H, 148th, son of Allen and Catherine Parker, enlisted 22 Aug 1862. I have a copy of this record that I can send but don't see any way to attach it here.
- New York State Archives, Cultural Education Center, Albany, New York; New York Civil War Muster Roll Abstracts, 1861-1900; Archive Collection #: 13775-83; Box #: 586; Roll #: 242 says Henry Parker Co H, 148th, mustered from Romulus in August 1862 was killed in action, Port Walthall, VA. I also have a copy of this record if you need it.
- Henry is listed on the 1850 and 1860 Seneca County censuses with the Allen and Catherine Parker family.

Hope this is what you need. Again, thanks so much. I love Find A Grave as a helpful source of genealogical info and have tried to connect as much of my extended family as possible.

RE: Goethe's at East Elfers and Evergreen
Well, I've searched for definitive documentation regarding the changes for Francis (Frances) V Goethe, John H M Goethe, and Adrian Coogler Goethe and have come up with nothing. All information was from submissions and/or tracking census records ~

RE: Goethe's at East Elfers and Evergreen
This is going to sound pitiful, but would you send me a list of the names? I don't write down the additions/corrections that I make . . . lesson learned! Thanks!
