For over 20 years I hunted for my great grandmother's grave. I found someone who searched for
graves as a hobby and through Findagrave he found my grandmother's grave. There was no death
certificate and no one knew where she was buried. Out in West Texas, in a very small cemetery, near
a ranch where some of her family lived she was buried in 1906 with just a small concrete marker.
There was a picture of this marker on find a grave with only the last name that was almost washed
away. I want to thank the person who made those pictures and posted them. The cemetery care-
takers did not know that grave was there. The historian for that little community did not know it was
there and she had been forgotten and lost all these years. My family has provided a very nice monument for her.
I can not understand all the negative comments that have been posted on this site about
find a grave and some right nasty ones. Many people would be lost forever if they didn't provide
this service for free and after all our ancestors are gone forever and we should be happy that our
friends can find those that they didn't know were gone and maybe someday visit those graves that
a lot of people forget once they are buried.
