Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy for many years. After I retired in 1985, my husband and I made many trips to Virginia and Pennsylvania searching for information on our families. Now I can sit at my computer and find most of the same information; although walking through cemeteries where ancestors are buried and going through old courthouse records was worth the trips. Now that I'm 86 and can't walk as well as I used to, I'm grateful for the computer.

My husband died in 2008 and is buried in Sunset Memorial Park in South Charleston, WV. I have been looking up obituaries on those buried in Sunset and adding their names, if they are not already listed. If I have listed anyone you are related to or want to manage, just let me know and I'll transfer the names. Just click on the Edit button.

If you see any errors I've made (fact or typos), please let me know, I will appreciate it.

DEAR ANCESTOR,
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Mohler, Byrne, etc.
Hello again!
It looks like you have added a lot of obituaries for this family, and I thank you very much.
It would be nice if there were some notification from Find A Grave when a memorial gets updated, especially with an obituary!
Regards,
Loretta

thank you
Thank you for the photo of the headstone of my relative Sophie Jensen Bolden and husband George (I saw you also got his parents as well while you were there). As soon as I saw the picture I realized why they hadn't found her under "Sophie" when I'd called. I didn't know she went by her middle name "Marie".

Transfers
Hello, I was hoping you could transfer the memorial of Elizabeth Wentzell Steinle to me. She is my wife's grandmother and there is a bit of information that I would like to attach to it. Thank you.

I have run into a problem with this being the widow of Thornton Guy Floyd. His death date was November 5 1971 and the death certificate says he was widowed. Do you have the complete obituary?

Thanks
