Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm just a guy who became interested in tracking down my family tree, which led me to Find a Grave.
So now I'm trying to help out filling a few photo gaps in nearby cemeteries.
I try to do more than just take photos. I try to reconstruct the families that I find, especially the women, who many times have no other identity than "Mother", or end up kicked to the curb over divorces and such.

John Moxley
Thank you for contacting me about the John Moxley memorial -- he married my grandfather's sister. I declined your change on date and place of birth. My records show he was born May 12, 1872 (which matches the year on the gravestone). I will make that change and accept the rest of your edits.

Thomas Jefferson Moxley

How were you able to determine that Thomas Jefferson Moxley was buried at Grace Cemetery? Find A Grave #169101805. Were you able to locate a death certificate or find church records of some sort?

I have spent weeks going through records in Uniontown and at the library upstairs, haven't been able to find a thing. I have been into Grace Cemetery, photographed Moxley headstones.

Thomas was my 4th great grandfather, his daughter Lydia was married to my 3rd great grandfather William that ran the tollhouse at Searights. They lived there (just over the hill from Grace Cemetery).

Would love to see what you have found, they have never been able to be located, Thomas or his wife, Elizabeth Murray.

RE: Peters
Thanks for letting me know about this. I don't know what happened back there but it's unfortunate. There might still be descendants of this family that might know something and maybe someday something else will turn up. I'm glad you created a page for her.

I appreciate you getting the photo of Josephine Peters and for her husband Lewis. I saw the creation of the memorial for Hannah Lydia, the first marriage of Lewis. Is she buried that grave plot also? I didn't see a marker for her. I'm afraid I don't know anything about her.

Congratulations on the 36% increase in the amount photographed! And I'll look forward to your edits next summer.

Hector VanTyle Comfort Hamlin
That reminded me that I had wondered before what would happen if the name did take up the whole line, so I added VanTyle Comfort after Hamlin. That fit, so I added it again, and found out that it starts a second line.

marker with first names only
That's a tough one. The only thing I can think of is that maybe the cemetery's records will show who those people's parents were. I came across something similar in our local cemetery, where the markers on three or four side-by-side graves had only initials. Luckily the City's website has a great map and database for the cemetery, and I was able to figure out who they were for sure. If I remember right, though, doing a search on Find A Grave's using just the initials found some of them, since whatever list was used to enter most of the cemetery on Find A Grave had the plot info. Good luck!
