Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in Find A Grave when I was looking for information about a friend's son that died many years ago. To my surprise Find A Grave came up with his headstone. After telling my friend about this way of memorializing her son, she gave me a photograph to upload. Of course I had to become a member to add it, so I did. After browsing through the site I realized the value, added some ancestor's graves that I had wanted to see for years and requested photos. I was overjoyed when Laurie LaPage fulfilled my request. I am hoping that this tool will help me to find some missing ancestors, memorialize those that I find and allow me to help others find clues to their ancestors.

RE: Helen McPartland
Sorry there was no marker. The more I look for graves the more I find without headstones. Kind of sad. The person that runs the cemetery told me that at times distant relatives of these people have a stone erected for them.

RE: Bertha McIntosh - Hampton Cemetary
All I can remember about Granny Bert as us locals called her was she always drove a green car. She was William Alva Saxton III, grandma, his mom was Lucile Saxon who passed in a car wreck many years ago. I wish that I had my mom's box of old photos, then I could send you one of her, but unfortunately I do not.

The photo you put up may have been of her way before I got to know her though. Thanks for what you do for find a grave!

I have made the correction. I don't remember taking pictures at Oaklawn but stranger things have happened. My dad passed away in August 2013 and he is buried in Oaklawn. Maybe I will stumble on more Oglesbys there.

Thank You for correcting me.

Hi Dede, Good to meet you and put a face to the name! I think I got all the transfers you asked about taken care of. Just let me know if any didn't go through. Hope to see you again at the museum. Robert

For sure she is not buried in meeting house. I have left a message for John O'Conner to further investigate where she is buried. I will keep my eyes out for her in other cemeteries.
