I hope what I've contributed to Find A Grave helps others as I was helped and is perceived as respectful and caring, as these were my intentions. I discovered this site because of my love for genealogy, and after finding many ancestors here, I joined to honor family not previously listed. Once I started, I realized how much interest I had in cemeteries. I now see what peaceful, sacred places they are, filled with touching tributes and the history of our past generations. I suppose every genealogist eventually comes to this realization.

In memorializing my direct relatives, I also added indirect relatives and cemetery neighbors to alleviate gaps. If you have additional or corrective information, just let me know using the convenient 'Edit' feature. Likewise, I am happy to transfer anyone to whom I'm not related (just ask). My hope in transferring is that you will add more to the memorial than I was able (like a full biography). I'd love to see every memorial maintained by a close relative or loved one that can make the memorial into a real tribute... making this site a virtual place that's almost as special as the physical final resting places. Our ancestors deserve that!

The Arkansas PBS network (AETN) produced an Emmy-winning documentary in 2010, Silent Storytellers, which beautifully emphasizes the need to preserve our cemeteries as priceless connections to our history. I highly recommend it for my fellow members; you don't have to be a resident of Arkansas to appreciate it. Director/co-producer Hop Litzwire uploaded the documentary onto YouTube, which you can access by clicking here.

RE: Your Coleman ancestors
Hi, Tim. I will begin by telling you that I am a newby at this and have barely touched my paternal side. It was due to the name of my great grandmother, Cora Chesney, that caused my crash. The info you provided now makes me assume that my grandfather married his cousin, since Cora's maiden name too was Coleman. Luke (Luther) and wife Cora died when I was a young girl. I do have two aging aunts on that side who might have some photos or info. I will post them if I can acquire any. I'd love to talk to you more about what you know but it appears there is no privacy here. Best wishes for a fruitful search.
