I began this adventure upon loosing my Grandmother; After 5 yrs and more late nights than I would like to remember I began piecing the biggest puzzle I have ever started together, Now I enjoy each and every new find of a wonderful puzzle.. I hope that by adding some of these to the find a grave sight that future generations can find there roots easier than I did. And if there is any that I have added that helps another It makes it all worth it. I research the Lowther, Keller, McDonald, Sims/Simms line from West Virginia, whenever I get a few minutes, if there is anyone out there that is looking for the same please feel free to contact me and I will gladly exchange information with you. I have a pile of photo's and memorial cards from My Grandmother that lived in West Virginia that I hope to get posted on many of these Memorials. To other contributors keep up the great work, your efforts are not going unnoticed, this is a great sight. A Great big Thank you goes out to everyone who has helped in finding the information that is posted.
Memorial# 40184753 - Albert Sims I thought you would like to know that your listing for Albert Sims brought a great deal of happiness to two ladies who were looking for him. I work at a library in Wood Co., WV, and they came into our genealogy section today with not much more than his name and place of employment. Thanks to your listing on Find A Grave and the posting of his memorial card, I was able to use the dates listed to find an obituary for him in our microfilm archives. The ladies were overjoyed to obtain this information, as the obituary listed several other family members that they were also searching for. I also got them directions so they could visit his grave. Thanks for providing the clues that helped me locate this long-lost relative for his family!

Brethren Cemetery in Kansas I noticed that you have posted a picture of James Posey Ball's headstone at the Brethren Cemetery in Belleville, Republic, Kansas and am wondering if you could tell me if this is located near Pleasant View Cemetery, Republic County, Kansas. I have ancestors who are either in one or the other and I can't figure out where the Brethren is located in relation to Brethren.
Any help you could give me on the location would be much appreciated.
RE: Could you move this memorial and cemetery I hink you have a cemetery listed that is not in Marion Co.. Would have to try and look it up. Did you put the Kaiser cemetery on F-A-G? That may be it. Kaiser is actually Kizer and I have it listed as such.
Could you move this memorial and cemetery Don't believe this is a correct listing for this burial. I am a local genealogist living in Marion Co. and there is no Marion City as of about 1890. I know there is no cemetery located there. I'm trying to eliminate non Marion Co. cemeteries from the Marion Co. registry.
