I stumbled across this site by accident. I am so grateful that I found it. It is a way I can memorialize my dad and sons continually. I miss him very much and never let a day go by that I don't think of him.
Then I got to thinking that there are alot of loved ones out there that have passed on and have been forgotten. Therefore I set out to try my best to add names of those that I have known throughout my life. I would eventually like to get all of my family listed that have gone on to be with the Lord. My ultimate goal is to add all the names in the cemeteries around the area that I live. There are alot of names to add but with the Lord's help I will eventually get it done.
If you see any mistakes or errors in my postings, please let me know and I'll make corrections. I take photos with a great deal of respect for those who have walked before us. If a family member objects to having a gravesite photo posted on Find A Grave, please let me know and I will remove it. Permission is granted to use any of my photographs for non-commercial, private use by family members. All others, please ask first.
Thanks so very much for allowing me to be a part of this ongoing task of making memorials for others.
Memorial# 10743598 Hi. Would you please transfer the memorial for Sarah E. Robeson to me for maintenance. She is my paternal grandmother and we have lots of family history and links to add to her memorial. Thank You. Lee Robeson #48034457
Mem # 10827238 Hi!You uploaded a picture of Private Charles William Byrd born in 1835. I was hoping you could give me more information about the picture, and share with me any other pictures you might have. Mr. Byrd is my husbands' 3rd great grandfather (My husband is Brandon Byrd, his father is Robert, his father is also Robert, his father being Ervin, then Charles.) I've just recently restarted my journey of following my husbands line back in time, as I got stuck before and didn't have the time to pursue it. I appreciate your time!
Joseph Alton Thompson and Jetta Edwards Thompson I am in hopes of seeing if you could connect my Great Grandparents with their children. I have gotten some of them connected but with you having listed my Great Grandmother Jetta Edwards Thompson, it will not let me connect her to others. I have the memorial numbers and names that I will list if you would be so kind to help me out I would be thankful for it.
With sincere thanks in advance Jason McDonald

Some of the children may already be connected with one of the parents, I was in hopes of getting all of them together.
Rising Cemetery, Bladen NC As I am sure you are aware, I have been updating the relationships of the individuals buried in the Rising Cemetery (White Family and Dove Family) off NC 242 near Elizabethtown. My paternal grandfather was a White and my paternal grandmother was a Dove. I have been involved in searching my family trees for the following families: White, Dove, Campbell, Shaw, Edwards, Pait/Pate, FitzRandolph, Lee, Rowell, Singletary, etc.
I should have asked you earlier to transfer the Rising Cemetery to me to keep you from having to approve all my numerous updates which you have so promptly approved. I know the history of almost every individual buried there having grown up in eyesight of the cemetery. The cemetery is still in the hands of the White Family. My father and my paternal grandparents back at least 3 generations from both sides of the families are buried there.
My deceased father and I have kept up this cemetery since I was a young child. Much of my information on the individuals buried there came from him. I would like to request that you transfer the management of this cemetery to me. I still have a lot of info to include on these people consisting mostly of bios on many of them and updated pictures of the gravestones and the cemetery itself.
I appreciate your tireless work and efforts in this matter so very much. If you would like any of the information I have gathered, I will be happy to provide you with the same.
