"When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner|
Thank you in advance for the many updates and links that I receive almost daily for my memorials. I strive to keep up with them.
Before accepting information in edits now, there is a great effort made to confirm the information you send. One edit sent to me, may take 4 to 6 hours of my time searching on ancestry and other genealogy sites to complete. I gather the records for said edit, gain knowledge of the family, contact other contributors to link family members that I am able to find, so that the entire family can be linked on any given memorial.
Please make sure your information is accurate, so that I can accept it. There are a lot of people being linked to those they do not belong to due to so many "same names". It is an easy mistake, I know, as it has happened to me in the past. When possible, follow your loved one from birth to death, check your dates and locations lived to make sure it is the correct memorial.
Know that I appreciate your time and effort. Please, be respectful of my time and effort. If I have made an error, sign in to Find A Grave, and send me an edit. If you have documentation of your information, include that as well.
I would also like to thank the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.
Find a Grave is kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.
Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"
When making CORRECTIONS & TRANSFERS
Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. ***PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES***
Transfer requests should be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.
Keep in mind, those of us who list the memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.
The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.
I am of the belief that "no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten." Phyllis Behrendt 2008
So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

|P Sherman||Jeanie G. Weston|
Hello, I wondered who told you that Jeanie was a Dower? She is the daughter of Roger Hall Ptolemy and Mary Ann H. Ptolemy. She was their youngest. Jeanie was born 1870 in Ontario, Canada. She immigrated in 1902 after the death of her father. All found in the census. She married Jesse Hugo Weston on 21 Apr 1909 in Mancos, Montezuma county, Colorado. (This is at the state archives) The wedding was at her brother, John Edward and Cora Ptolemy's home. Wedding is mention at the Colorado Historic Newspaper Collection, on-line. Jeanie died in 1944 and is buried at Cedar Grove Cemetery, Mancos, CO. After her death Jesse went to California and died there on March 12, 1948 in Los Angeles county. Jesse Hugo Weston is the son of James and Emmaline "Elty" Watkins Weston. Jesse's parents are both at Cedar Grove in Mancos. I do not know yet where Jesse is buried. He was the last in his family, so if he was brought back to Colorado, it would have been nieces or nephews or a friend.

I appreciate your efforts and wish you luck. My phone calls to cemetery caretakers have been not been fruitful.
If you don't mind, could you also ask about a death date for Celia Bobbe Ptolemy? (May be listed as Cecelia.)
Let me know what you find out.

Thanks for the info. I was not aware of Roger's burial in California. I will ask Find a Grave to mark the memorial in Cedar Grove as a cenotaph.

Thanks for the photo.
|Harry Johnson||RE: JOHNSON FAMILY|
Sorry to keep pestering you. Looking at the Johnson Clan from the Iowa/Nebraska areas, here are some more names you may run across in your files:
Children of Aaron & Sarah Taylor Johnson (Millard Fillmore, Theodore Sheridan Franklin, Cassius Clay & Lewis Charles Fremont).
Children of Aaron & Elizabeth Taylor Johnson (Charity Ann & William Jasper).
Children of Aaron & Jennette Gordinier Johnson (Ernst, Newell, Amelia Burns, Ulysses & Letha Mendenhall).
If you have material earlier than Aaron, I'm looking for photos of Miles McDowell Johnson & David Johnson. They, like Aaron, were sons of Benjamin.
Thanks for your patience!! HJ
|Harry Johnson||RE: JOHNSON FAMILY|
AWESOME!! Thanks so much. I don't know what you have for photos (or who your ancestor was) so hard to say what I'd like to have. Definitely would like to see anything you have of Ernst, Newell, and Millard. Any descendants of Aaron, their spouses, or their children would be useful for my book. If this is causing you any expense I'll happily compensate you. Thanks again for your willingness to help me out. Cheers! HJ
|Aleta||Nancy Troutman Lewis|
Wondering if you could attach the documentation you mentioned as far as Nancy's death in Vernon County. You mentioned a death or burial record without a date. Is there anyway I can get a copy of that? Thanks. Aleta

|Harry Johnson||RE: JOHNSON FAMILY|
WOW!! Whatever your connection, someone did well to preserve photos. Millard was my grandfather (he was NOT a nice man!). Would you be willing to share some of your photos with me? For more than 20 years I've been writing a family history book (almost 700 pages now!). I use photos, documents, letters, and anything else that will help people understand their family members. Photos of Ernst, Newell, Millard or any others connected to the Johnson family would be very helpful. Please let me know if there is a way to achieve this. If you would like to contact me directly my e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org Many thanks, HJ
|Harry Johnson||JOHNSON FAMILY|
Thanks for the posting of Erista Mendenhall and the fabulous photo! I am descended from Aaron Johnson and his second wife. For the past 15 years I've been searching for a photograph of Aaron for my family history book. I'm curious to know where you located the photo of Erista and if your source might have other photographs. Thanks again, HJ in Oregon
