Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started taking pictures and adding data after my own mother died.
I was doing research on a neighborhood history project and accidently ran across a picture of that families' mausoleum on find a grave.
After looking at the site, I decided to add my family to the collection. When I took pictures of my families stones, I took others near them. Then I took pictures of good looking stones and monuments and odd ones or old ones.
Now, I try to honor any I find. I feel I am helping people find their history and honoring those who went before us.
I hope that if anyone finds their loved ones through me, that they will see it in that way.

Many Blessings,


Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

I found this lovely poem on the site of Dave Buckmaster - I loved it and "borrowed" it.

RE: Lucy Tibbals 19511947
No - that is perfect - I am so sorry that I sent a wrong link. I think what happened is I had you link the correct daughter (also a Lucy Tibbals) and then later saw the grandchild and was thinking it was the daughter and thought I forgot to send you the link. It's that old age thing creeping up on me - ha ha.

Thanks again,

Lucy Tibbals 19511947

Eeeek! I must have sent you this link in error - this was Huron's granddaughter, not daughter.

I was glad to give you some information. He is descended from my gr-gr-grandfathers half sister. I recently found a 3rd great grandson of her and was working on the trees and found the memorial. I may find some more info if you have memorials for other folks.

I don't know what the connection is between Jasper C and Jasper Newton.
Might be cousins, but I have no record.

I haven't a clue about the information you're looking for on thyroid glands.

Dear Pamela,

I want to start by saying Thank You on behalf Genealogists everywhere for your contributions to the Find-A-Grave website.
I found the listing for my husband's 2nd Great Grandmother virtual Grave created by you.
I was wondering if maybe you could transfer the 'Grave" to me, Unless of course it it a family member of your own.
In which case I would love to know how you might be related to Mary Jane.
Please feel free to contact me about this or if you have any questions

This is the information of the Virtual Grave:

RE: request for John Jacob Parks
That's strange. If I get to the cemetery tomorrow I will take a photo and add it to the site. Maybe that will help.
