Bio Photo Genealogy is a passion of mine from when I was very young. My grandmother told me wonderful stories about our families and I have been doing family history for over 30 years. I have traveled all over the world photographing family graves and writing books on my different families. I need another 25 years to finish everything I have started!

Wilbert Bowen 1923-1970
Wilbert Bowen is one of your memorials. According to his grave his name is actually Bowens. If you could update memorial, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Charles L. Stopher
My sister and I would like to know who contributed this information. We would like to get in touch with the informant since we thought we were the only living relatives. He is our great grandfather. Thank you for adding a piece in our puzzle. Perhaps a window into our family background might be opening.

RE: Hill Family
Wow Karen Mickel Bennett,

We thank you!! I've been a bit overwhelmed lately. Your efforts are tremendously appreciated.

Are the Hills you worked on listed on your profile? I cannot seem to find them. What cemeteries were they?

TIA

JENNIE SHARPE BATTS
Hi Karen,

I received a surprise today in my email. Sibo80 posted a photo of Jennie's marker, so my request has been filled by him/her. Thank you for your willingness to take a photo of it next time you are at Montlawn.

Have a good summer!

JENNIE MARIE WALTON SHARPE BATTS

Good Morning Karen,

I finally have the Montlawn Cemetery gravesite location of:

JENNIE WALTON SHARPE BATTS (1911-2005)
Memorial # 11502843
Section 9, Lot 64, Unit A, Space 2
Sharone at Montlawn confirmed she does have a marker.

Jennie is buried next to her first husband, JESSIE MARVIN SHARPE, space 1. (There is no 'E' on his marker...but the correct spelling of his last name includes the 'E').

A photo exists of his marker on his Find A Grave Memorial page # 47834729, so it is not necessary to photograph it.

If you will photograph and post a photo (on Find A Grave) of Jennie's marker the next time you go to Montlawn, I will be most grateful.

Thank you,
Karen M. Freeman

Florrie L. Allen
Hi Karen,
Thank you for accepting my Edit for William Gaston Allen (1851-1910). I noticed that you have Florrie L. Allen (Memorial #84245114) linked to the above William Gaston Allen. Actually this is probably her grandfather, but certainly not her father. Her parents likely are:

William Gaston Allen, Jr.
(1851-1910)
Memorial #10750023

Florence L. Allen
(1848-1884)
Memorial #63160541

I have just done a new link on Florrie's page, but One caution here. There is another sibling (William G. Allen III Memorial #85822981) with a birth year of 1880 too. I just checked Ancestry,
(NC Deaths 1909-1975) so William's birth year of Jan. 6, 1880 is correct. Unfortunately Florrie died too early for a NC death certificate. Maybe it would be best just to leave Florrie unlinked until a tombstone picture is done.

John Foster and Harriett Smith Bryant
Karen,
Thank you so much for putting my grandparents' graves on the website. Would you allow me to manage their sites? I have some photos and links to John's parents who are buried in New Jersey. Both of them were only children and my father is their only living child.

My Find A Grave no. is 48442806
John Foster Bryant #123708486
Harriett Smith Bryant #123708823

Thank you for your consideration,
Ellen Bryant McCoy
