                           Welcome-----    may your visit be both comfortable and rewarding!!!  

                                                                         --------------------------------00000--------------------------- 
                    WHERE ARE YOUR FOLKS BURIED?
                                                                   ----------------------------------00000-------------------------------- 

                              This " unknown" has surely been a 
                                                           nagging and un-resolved experience 
                                                         for many of you, and, 
                                                       most definitely, 
                                                                                 it has been, for me.  
                                                                  In many cases,  
                                                  we may even know the large general area of the grave site, 
                                                                             but,  
                                              circumstances have made it impossible,   
                                                     to go look for,
 
                                                          
or to know for sure, 
                                                                  just where our relative has been placed.

                                Hopefully, some bit, of the information,
                                                                                                in this        
                                                             county-wide, searchable database,
                                                        may be the "find" that ends the complexities,
                                                                                      of the long hunting season,
                                                                                                            that each of us has been on, 
                                                                             at some time during our family search endeavors.

                                                                       The credit for the content
                                                                           of this research vehicle

                                                            must be awarded to each of many, many people;
                                               un-related, perhaps,
                                                                   in a genealogical sense,
                                                                             
    but,
                                                                having a common purpose;

                                                              that being,
                               1) to contribute of their time, efforts and expenses,
                                                                              in an attempt to give an amount of due
                                                                     reverence and "remembrance
"
                                      
      to those folks who have gone on before us;  
                                        
2
) recording their record that is
                                                               "written in stone"; and,

                                       3) providing a tool of research,
                                                                          
   for each one of us today----- and,
                                             also for our as yet
un-born, replacement, researchers.

      In your mind, or, holler, if you wish, thank the contributors,
                                                                    
of this data----- 
                              hurray.............., hurrah..............., hurrah...............!!!
                  
        ------------------------------------------------///////////////////-----------------------------------------

                                    There are many of these cemetery locations,
                                               that are situated
                                                           
in the hilly areas, 
                                                  
            
  of good old Mercer County, that
                                                                                                  "MOTHER NATURE
                                                            
  has once again re-claimed,
                                                                    taken back what was
borrowed
from her---- 
                                                                           repossessed
, if you will, 
                                                                               
because, 
                                       
       "we" may be among those that have not been good stewards.
                 

                         
         --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                           Making the trek to a cemetery location,
                                                             can be quite perilous,
                                                                               in and of itself. 
                                                                     While obtaining the information, 
                                                         from the grave stones, those that can be found, 
                                                                 these contributor
"gatherers"
                                          
may have put themselves in
                                                                                      
                    harms' way",
                                                                               
                        in many precarious ways;
                                                   
       
as it can be said of many of these cemetery sites,
                                                                 "
there's a jungle out there
".
 
                                                 
        Hats off to each of you guys and gals!!!
