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.|

DJ was a very dear friend of mine many, many years ago when we were in high school. I found out he'd passed away about a year after the fact, and I never knew where he was interred. I always wanted to visit the site to pay my respects to him. My husband encouraged me recently to do some research, and I found the name of the cemetery...and then I found this page. I don't know who you are or why you added his grave to the site, but in my eyes you are an angel. I will always be grateful to you, because now I know where my friend is and where I can go tell him the goodbye that I never got to say. I can't begin to tell you how much that means to me. Thank you.

Absolutely not, we never feel like we've wasted our time searching for the final resting places of loved ones for their families. We just wish we could have had better news and picture to send. Let us know if you have any further cemeteries we could check.

I was at Prairie Home Cemetery the other day to find Calvin's marker where he is buried (along with Mary Richardson). Unfortunately there are no markers for either one of them. They are buried there, just no markers. I did take a photo of the grassy area where they are buried, please let me know if you would like me to upload that photo. It does show the marker to one side of the person buried in the space next to them. I am sorry that I could not be of more help. Regards, Alice

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.

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!

Just curious where you found the picture of Granny Bert?

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.

Changed cemetery from Oaklawn Cemetery to Oaklawn Memorial Park. Thank You for the correction. Yes, add the photo please.
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.
