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:
99060SSA #47215387 (also identified as: Wakulla Families and A98M00J01C03) writes on Feb 08, 2015 9:39 AM:
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. 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

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

Thank you so much for John Bliss's memorial. It is very kind of you to transfer it to me. I appreciate all your hard work.
|Kim White||Amanda Croup Pinneo Juleff|
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

So instead of vacuuming and dusting this afternoon, I started researching Donald...
|Lisa Atwood||Thank you|
Thank you so very much for transferring my grandparents memorial and thank you for the time and effort you have put in to this project on Find A Grave. God Bless you!
|Eric and Candy Wicker-Tilton||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.
|Jana Ulrich||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.

|Priscilla Elledge||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 Ancestry.com submissions and/or tracking census records ~
|Priscilla Elledge||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!
