Bio and Links
Bio Photo Even though it says I've been on here for 7 years I've only actually been creating memorials for about a year. After having some really great interaction with other people on Find A Grave, I have recently encountered a really unpleasant situation that has made me rethink my membership here and I feel I'd like to clarify: I am still quite new to this site and any mistakes I have made have been on accident and I'll happily change them. I'm really just on here for genealogy purposes- this has been such a great resource so far and also a great way to honor my family, both immediate and distant.

I apologize if I have offended anyone with my past mistakes with certain memorials- I have endeavored to correct them.

Hello Leah,

I have a bunch of information on Horatio G. the son of Liberty Elijah Holmes (L.E.H.) Houghton and his wife Jane Elizabeth West. I've just noticed your posts from 2009 and just this moment discovered your Find A Grave participation.

I think your email is valid as I've sent some inquiries your way by and by the Genealogical sites where you've posted.

You can find me at and I am looking forward to sharing my stories and discoveries.

RE: Chester P Isbell

You are most welcome. I sent you a better picture of Carolyn's stone if you wish to use it. There was already one there and I don't like to step on someone's toes, but you can. Please feel free to post it if you want.

Hi Leah! I read your BIO and am glad you came back. I don't know you. However, you are doing a good job and findagrave needs more like you. Yes. There are some really "ugly" people on here. And that is sad. Those kinds of people must be really unhappy. I can only pity them and I do. However, for every one of them, there must be at least a thousand more who are really wonderful, helpful, and doing the same thing we are--honoring those who have gone on before us and learning so much about our own roots at the same time. Keep up the good work!
