Thomas Sheasley
I was overjoyed this afternoon to find a post for Jacob Sheasley. He was father to my Great Grandfather Thomas Beaver Sheasley and I have been wishing I had a link to his Find a Grave page. My grandmother was Margaret Laurine Withrow (Sheasley) and she was responsible for my interest in genealogy. I spent so much of my childhood being enchanted with her stories from her research and knowledge. I'm hoping to get these two sites linked and believe the link needs to be created from Thomas' site which is yours.

Rockefeller/Cemetery Project
Hi Mike,

I used to use your website, The Cemetery Project, when I was growing up as a young grave hunter. It was a good tool, and I was sorry to see it disappear some years ago.

On the website, I vaguely remember the account of your attempt to visit the grave site of Nelson Rockefeller in New York. If I recall, you said a security guard or police officer stopped you at the gate?

Do you still have a written account that day, or could you remember what exactly happened? Recently, I began writing about my own visits to the various presidential and vice presidential graves, and I wanted to reference what happened on your visit, but wish to be wholly accurate if I do so. If you could provide me with the details, I would be very appreciative.

Thank you very much! If you are still visiting cemeteries, happy hunting!

Greenlawn Cemetery in Columbus
I have a stack of Section maps for Greenlawn Cemetery in Columbus. I know they are not too friendly to Find A Grave people but one day I went and talked to two men in the office and before I knew it, they were making copies of ALL the sections of Greenlawn!!

I am leaving the area and will not be needing these, so if anyone wants these section maps which would help a lot if you are trying to get photos for a Find A Grave member, please let me know. My email address is I will mail the stack to you.

Cissy Flew Nichols
Is there a reason that grave sites and/or markers can not be seen on Find-A-Grave? I am somewhat confused, as I thought that was the reason for find-a-grave. I looked for years to find my biological grandfather. I drove 14 hours to visit a plot of land that did not even have a marker and the picture was taken off. Could you please explain this for me?
Sadly disappointed,

Looking forward to meeting you.

Thomas Moran
Hi Mike, if this is the same Thomas he was my grandfather on my father's side. They lived in Virginia and he was a farmer married to Ruth Nancy Kitchen. They had 4 boys and the first was my father Thomas Jr.
If it's the right Thomas, I went to his funeral when I was 17. There was a 21 gun salute. If we are related tell me more about the connection.
Thank you, Judy Moran Lohr

Wilbur Ford and Josie Ford
I am removing pictures of the cemetery entrance from these two pages. I added these names, they are my husband's grandparents, and when I added them it had been over 25 years and nothing had been entered. If I decide to put pictures up it will be of the marker or of them at their 60 wedding anniversary, which took place in 1980 (May)

Will you give me permission to use your photograph of the Homewood Cemetery, Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, USA, where my ancestor Henry Snell is buried?

Hi, Mike, Pertaining to #140715071. She is a relative. There is a notation not to show cemetery photos. Why is that?

Hello Mike,
Looks like I made a mistake in asking you to change some information on a profile. I do thank you for contributing a photo of the cemetery and I will ask the proper folks about the changes to the grave page. Thanks!
