Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history since 1978 and have enjoyed doing family research since that time. I love this website and have been adding memorials for our family. I hope, if you view any of my memorials you will contact me so I can share what ever information I might have. Some of my family memorials I have listed, not knowing the cemetery, in hopes someone who sees them may be able to tell me. I also have been adding memeorials for my daughter's in-laws family and some from the local cemeteries. So either way, I can possibly tell you something about a number of my memorials. I welcome your questions, comments, corrections etc. I have met some really nice and helpfull people through Find A Grave. It is my most sincere desire to help someone add new data to their research so plese feel free to contact me.

Casi Avery
My name is Casi Avery. My great grandmother, Helen Hecht Edgington, was the granddaughter of Frederick and Adaline Kasdorf Hecht. Her father was Edward Hecht (4/17/1888-4/30/1955). I was wondering if you knew who Frederick's parents were. If you have any information please email me at

RE: Sand Valley Cemetery and Nansels
Hi this is Corbin Naylor. I went to Callaway this past weekend and finished the geocoding. We retook the Nansel coordinates. Hope these look better. Sorry for the mixup last time. If you need anything else please let me know.

Thank you for letting me know. I will be going back to the cemetery Labor Day weekend and will take a look at the coordinates. Thank you for letting me know. I will be adding 5 flag holders to the veteran's headstones! I just got them in and they look great!

RE: Martin Luther Slesdet
On Find A Grave the information about Martin Luther Slesdet does not include my father, Gilbert H. Slesdet as a sibling to Martin. Would you please correct this mistake.
Thank You,

Mr. Barbee, the descendant who made and placed the stone, probably put it there in 2012 (when I made the memorial). He was the one who brought it to our attention that the cemetery had been placed in the wrong county (I don't remember now which one, maybe Stanly) and we first contacted you but you had not created the cemetery record itself, so Find A Grave helped correct the location.
