Bio and Links
Bio Photo I accidentally came upon the Find A Grave website! I was amazed at how much new direction it has provided me with on my genealogy search. I started my genealogy research about 30 years ago just as a hobby, but it now has become more of a 2nd occupation for me. I love being able to help people with their research and at the same time it helps me with mine. I have been adding my family members info to FindAGrave in the hope that their story will endure. I try to ensure that the memorials I add are correct! That is one of my pet peeves! I want my memorials to be more than merely a beginning date and an end date in someone's life! I want to paint a broader picture of that person. Since this is a living memorial, I want it to be just that! To show that the person did live, have a family, etc. So, I try to only add a memorial once all the facts have been verified as accurate and when I have a short bio of the person. Sometimes, there is nothing more than a birth date and death date and that is all. If I make a mistake on a memorial, please contact me so that I can edit it and make it correct! I appreciate any and all help in this journey of mine. The people I enter on FindAGrave ARE my family members! I take good care of them, but if anyone has more info on my memorials, I welcome the addition of information. Just send a message on the SAC (Suggest A Correction) for their memorial.

RE: John Henry Blair, Jr.
John Henry was married to my maternal grandmother's older sister. I have the photo in an album my mother put together for us. I will send you a jpeg of that and any others I find. Of course you have my permission to use.

RE: Hiram Cagle Turner
My wife is a granddaughter to Hiram and she just says that is how she always spelled the name. No corrections needed on your end.

RE: Hiram Cagle Turner
Hiram and Portia were married after the death of Ila. Portia died before Hiram and they are both buried at Mt.Zion Church Cemetery by their first spouse. These are grandparents of my wife who is Brenda Carver. Brenda's mother is the daughter of Ila Fine and I believe she still lived at home when Portia and Hiram married. Portia is the only grandma my wife knew on the Turner side and family has always talked very highly of Grandma PORTY as they called her. We have decorated her grave yearly for several years.

Re: Herman A. Raab
Sorry about the typo in the previous message. I meant to say "his adoption by Henry Raab".

Herman A. Raab FAG # 104124622
I had already added the information to Herman A. Raab's bio about his birth father Joseph LaCroix and his adoption by Herman Raab. I have added a link in the bio, which is the only way I can link Herman to both fathers.

Regarding changing Lucy Raab's and Herman A. Raab's last names to LaCroix-Raab, as you have requested through the edit tab, I will leave their names as on the markers. Changing them would likely cause duplicates and is actually against Find A Grave's naming conventions, which say "Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links."
