I have been researching my family for over 25 years. Any photographs you find on the memorials that I have posted are yours to use on your family tree...after all, they are your relatives, too (credit is appreciated).|
I am glad to transfer any memorials that are your family unless they are related closer to me or my husband.
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

Considering this is your ancestry please be aware I have added his mother today.
|Denali Rose||Thank you, BJWD for grave research|
Thank you so much for helping me with my HANKEY family research. I've been compiling the family information for decades now and finally found the link with Jacob Andrew Hankey, through your addition of the FindAGrave site.
|Michelle M. Hughes (Smith)||I think we are related|
Hello. I noticed on Ludwig Getgan III memorial you indicated he was your great grandfather and he is also mine! I think we must be cousins. My personal email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to communicate with you on our family history. I do have a tree on ancestry and also on MyHeritage and do have my raw DNA. Thank you! Michelle.
BJWD, I would like to thank you for transferring the Memorials of Chester, Lilian, Medora, Vernice and Willie Russell to me. I also appreciate the photo of Laura and Arthur Raymond Posey headstone which I downloaded and placed in my Posy family tree at Ancestry. I did credit you in the photo caption as the owner. Thank you for all you have done here at Find A Grave...... the amount of Memorials and all the other work is just amazing. Jim

|Sue Straw||Drisco photos|
Hi! I have left gravestone photos for Capt. James Drisco and his wife Elizabeth in the Point of Graves, Portsmouth, NH. I have many more on my website that you are welcome to. The website is devoted to the children buried in the Point of Graves. It is my desire to identify as many as possible and tell their family histories. They made a difference, even if just for a short time. www.AncestorSpeak.org

I uploaded a picture for him, I did notice that on the marker it shows the spelling as Weatherston, but all other information matches. It was also interesting to see he was a CPL in 24 Ambulance Co in WWI.
|Tammy Smith||Old Brookville Cemetery|
I am so sorry that I couldn't find the grave you requested, both my daughter and I looked over the entire cemetery. There are so many faceless tombstones that it makes finding someone very hard. Once again I am sorry.
|MrsB||Thank you for the edits for your uncle|
I appreciate these--if there is anything you would like me to add to his bio, please send an edit through the memorial. I am happy to work with you.

|Joan G||Garlands in Rye Cemetery, NH|
I also have a photo for a grave of Sally Garland, wife of Benjamin Garland.She died April 5, 1828 age 34 years. She didn't seem to match with either of your two Benjamins. I also found a "MWG" buried between AVG (Annie V) d. 1913 and WHG (Wm Harley Garland), 4/24-1839-8/27/1922.
I don't know why the photos posted sideways to findagrave. They aren't sideways in my viewer. Sorry. Perhaps you can save them and turn them around.
The records of Rye Central Cemetery aren't computerized at all. I looked in the 3 books of graves but couldn't find the other Garlands you wanted. I did find a listing for Mary A Garland, daughter of John Calvin and Elizabeth, but I couldn't find her grave. The book listed it as being in section 2-028.
Happy to be of help. Joan

There is a family story that he did serve in the Civil War, so I haven't discounted the possibility. He would have been young. But I haven't found a record. Thanks for answering.
