I've been doing genealogy since 1988. I love walking through cemeteries, imagining the lives of the people I pass.
Most of the pages I post are for people to whom I am not related. (the ones I am connected to usually have a photo of the person added). These "extra" people are ones from local (and not so local) cemeteries that my husband & I photograph their stones and I enter them on FAG, trying to link as many as I can so the families are brought back together after all this time. I do lots of research to accomplish this and I hope I add correct information. I love to connect these people and I'm always thrilled when something comes together, either through the census, obits, marriage records, a family genealogy, Rootsweb entries, or even "social" news in an old newspaper. I hope I find "homes" with descendants for all these people. Please ask for a transfer if you are related.

as an added comment--I always try to guesstimate a person's birth year, based on age at death, so it obviously is not always correct. I just feel that a person searching for an ancestor will be less confused with an estimated birth year, rather than having to paw through other entries with no year listed at all.

RE: Anna Hibbard Lindley Baker
Dear Ms. Branca: THANK YOU! I looked in vain for obits for Anna and Elijah! Your assistance has made my day!!! WOW!!! I am delighted to find this information even though I still don't know where they are buried. My interest in Anna stems from the fact that her first husband, David Lindley, was a soldier in the 147th Regiment, about which I am writing a book. David died at Andersonville from diarrhea in October 1864 and Anna married Baker in 1867. Orletta was her only child. She and Lindley had been married only a few months when he was drafted into the Union Army. Very sad. Again, I thank you most heartily for the wonderful information. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall, PhD

Anna Hibbard Lindley Baker
Dear Ms. Branca: I hope you can help me. I am trying to locate the graves of the above named woman and her second husband Elijah L. Baker (d. April 27, 1900). Both her parents, Stephen and Eliza Hallett Hibbard, and his parents, plus her daughter Orletta Hallett Baker Johnson, are all buried in Millers Corners Cemetery, Ionia, NY. I think Anna and Elijah are there too but can't find any corroboration. When you visited the cemetery did you by any chance see grave stones for them? She died November 6, 1907. Thank you for whatever information you may be able to provide. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall, PhD
