Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my family surnames on my Mother's side Traffenstead/Traffanstedt/Garrett (AL/GA/TN) Hartsfield/Cross (AR) and my Father's side (Galloway/Carter/Cook/Oliver (SC/AL/GA). I've been interested in geneaology since August 2006 when I started looking for my Mom's biological family whom I found within 2 weeks.
Please take a moment and visit my family. Thank you so much.

This dear sweet woman has been part of our family since I was a little girl. She will never be forgotten. Love you Ms. Frances.

If I have offended anyone, please let me know and I will remove the memorial of your loved one. If you aren't a part of Find A Grave, you can still contact me through the edit tab of the memorial. I don't mean to offend anyone. All memorials are created out of respect. The purpose of me adding names is because I believe that people should never be forgotten, and also I like to help people who are searching for their ancestors.

I will be happy to transfer memorials that are a part of your family with the exception of the ones of my family within Find A Grave's 4 generations guidelines. You MUST state the relationship with your ID number. All RUDE requests will be ignored!

Duplicates - These are errors, and not created on purpose. I search before I create a memorial and after every time. Long time users will tell you that FaG searches can be flaky at times. Please bring any errors or duplicates to my attention so I can correct them. If I have created a memorial and you create a duplicate, do not send me a message that the one I created is a dupe and for me to delete. I will not delete any memorials if you created a dupe. Don't create a dupe memorial just because you're related. If you are family, kindly ask for a transfer or you can add photos and send me information to be added and I'll be glad to add it. If you are within the 4 generations, please ask for a transfer. Please read the FAQ's for this site on creating memorials.

***Please do not take any of my photos 📷 without permission. If you would like a grave marker photo that I've taken, just ask. The reason for this is I spend many hours in cemeteries to take these photos. I've seen my pics show up on other sites without giving proper credit. I keep a record of people who have asked and been given permission. The only EXCEPTION is if I post a photo of someone and their spouse doesn't have one, feel free to take the photo and upload it. Just give me credit. I'm a chronic pain sufferer but I do this anyway because it's something I love to do and contribute to this website. Thank you for understanding. :)***

Stella Johnson
I purposely did not post the picture from Raymond's memorial to Stella's because I'm waiting for them to add the death date to the headstone. I've known this family my whole life, my father worked w/Stella's husband and I'm still in contact w/their oldest daughter.

Mann Family Photos
I am researching the Mann Family and see that you have added several photos of gravestones for this family. I see that you wish to be asked for permission to use them, so I am respectfully asking if it is ok for me to use them on provided that I credit you as the photo source. Thank you for your help and please let me know. - Allison

Would be nice if you practiced what you preach- "***Please do not take any of my photos without permission. If you would like a grave marker photo that I've taken, just ask. The reason for this is I spend many hours in cemeteries to take these photos. I've seen my pics show up on other sites without giving proper credit. I keep a record of people who have asked and been given permission."

You've taken my photo for Raymond Johnson (100921720) and added it to his wife, Stella Johnson (100857178), granted you've given me credit in the comments- I don't recall you asking to do it, which is what you request people do for your photos...

Oaks Chapel Clay Co. Al
Dana - Memory Annis Saxon Nelson should be in Oak Chapel Cemetery in Clay Co. I don't know who created Oaks Chapel Cemetery but the sign shows Oak Chapel Cemetery in Clay Co. I don't know of a Oaks Chapel Cemetery in Clay Co.

My parents
Hi Dana,
Yes Roy and Evelyn were my dear parents. I read some of your post and you do such a great job. It doesn't matter if you transfer my dad's grave to me, You are much better doing this than I am and I appreciate your work. I don't know you but looking over your post I know you are a very nice, hard working, great etc. person.
A little trivia, Since you are Ed's cousin as a Cook, you are probably related to my Great Aunt Lizzy Cook by marriage. She was my grandmother's, (Ila Crabtree Carr) sister.
A bit of trivia, My sister named her daughter Ila Ansley Cleveland. She goes by Ansley but she married a Crabtree in Spain where she has spent years as a campus missionary so she is Ila Crabtree. They live in Ireland now.
Thank you for your great work on this site.
Rodney Carr
