Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in NJ. I have lived here all my life. I have been doing my family genealogy since 1996. I love walking through and transcribing cemeteries.

Some of the memorials I have created and manage are ancestors of mine, and many of them are not. I try to add as much as possible to the memorials so that others researching their families can get information on their families. I welcome any corrections to the memorials I have created. Sometimes information sent can be incorrect, the dates on graves hard to read, etc.

I think findagrave is excellent, but when you wish to add memorials, please make sure that someone else has NOT already added that person. Duplicate memorials are confusing to other researchers. I have found many cases where I have created memorials and someone else has created another one AFTER mine. If you discover a memorial has already been created by someone else and you are family to the person added, please contact the submitter for a transfer. Also, adding memorials to findagrave because you ASSUME the person is buried there is also confusing to other researchers. If you do not know do NOT add it. This website is to help others, not to see how many memorials you can add.

The cemeteries that I have added memorials from include:
Canton Baptist Church Cemetery in Canton, NJ
First Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ
Baptist Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ
East View Cemetery in Salem, NJ
St. Mary's Cemetery in Salem, NJ
Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Greenwich, Cumberland Co. NJ
Saint John's Episcopal Churchyard in Salem City, Salem Co., NJ.

I usually honor requests for memorial transfers if the memorial is a relative of the requester, but please do not expect large numbers of memorials to be transferred at a moments notice. I will transfer them as MY time allows.

**PLEASE DO NOT ADD INFORMATION IN THE NOTE SECTION TO MY ANCESTORS MEMORIALS. USE THE EDIT TAB AND SEND ME YOUR SUGGESTION WITH THE SOURCE OF YOUR INFORMATION. I HAVE SPENT MANY YEARS DOING MY FAMILY HISTORY AND THERE HAS BEEN INCORRECT INFORMATION POSTED IN THE NOTE SECTION**

**PLEASE NOTE: I will NOT accept an edit linking children to their Mother when the Mother has married after the death of her first husband and you have her first married name listed as a maiden name. Per Findagrave: They are to be listed as first name, middle name (if any) and current married name. Anything else causes confusion. You can put all names, husbands, etc in bio section of the memorial.

**PLEASE USE THE EDITS FEATURE OF FINDAGRAVE TO SUBMIT INFORMATION OR CORRECTIONS TO MEMORIALS. I will NOT correct if they are not sent through the edits feature. Too many emails are jamming my inbox AND information being sent to correct is NOT for the actual memorial needing to be corrected/updated. I have no problem correcting memorials but I am NOT going to spend my time having to hunt for the correct memorial.

**PLEASE DO NOT ADD INFORMATION TO NOTES YOU LEAVE ON MEMORIALS CREATED BY ME (Parent's names, maiden name, birth information, etc). USE THE EDITS TAB AND SEND THE INFORMATION.

You sent me some edits for this burial.

https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=45028697

I added the Death Certificate. Do you think the entry below is her father and mother? DC Says Fred Dutch and Mary?.

If so, send me the edits to link them.

RE: Annie Parsons
Hi Dawn, You and I have similar hobbies. I love to haunt cemeteries. Anyway, I'm only related by marriage to Annie. She was my great uncle's wife. They had no children together. Thanks for connecting Annie with her first husband. I'm glad you knew the answers. Take good care, Mary Ann

Annie Parsons
Hi Dawn, I think I found your Annie Burroughs Parsons as she was married to my great uncle Alexander Mason Davis. I created her memorial (#181543761) this morning based on her obituary. All the information led me to your family, but if you think I've made some errors, just let me know and I'll disconnect her from your Parsons. If you think I'm correct, could you help me find her first husband? She did not have any children with my Uncle Alexander, but her obituary says she had several grandchildren and great grandchildren. Your thoughts? Mary Ann

Hello!
Hello my name is Alyssa and recently came across a family ancestry book and I found a lot of my ancestors in one cemetery. Could you please upload some pictures of the headstones please. They are the Ware family. I sent a request and since there are several I didn't want to over run you. Thank you so much for putting this names in. This has helped me so much in my search for my ancestors.

Corrections
Thanks for making all my corrections. I welcome your input because as you know I am working off of handwritten lists from information copied from tombstones made many years ago. Many of the information is too faded to read now. It's nice to have the information checked from other sources. I welcome any corrections.

I see you sent me some edits for the Higgins family of Burlington County. Are you related to them? My grandfather was Isaac. Always looking for new cousins

Hi Dawn,


I have that info you sent, and here is the info you need:
Rosalie Martha Stow
died.-2-11-2007, Belle, Kanawha, West Virginia
Rosalie and Bill had five children.

Violet Stow
Born-1915 Salem, New Jersey
died-4-1-2001 Pennsville, NJ
Son Edward Neicen Jr
born-5-6-1935
died-11-14-2009 Sussex Co, Delaware

Dawn, are you related to any of them? If so, I have a baby photo of Violet, alone and both Violet and Rosalie with my Knox and Stow family. If you are interested I will send them to you. Also, I just thought of it, I have a photo of an older Rosalie if you are interested.
Thanks for all your info Dawn,
Steve
