I started researching my genealogy in 1980 and got hooked. I took classes, and was taught by the best. The rest is history! I enjoy and feel such peace wandering through cemeteries. I have a lot of information. I hope it will help to make it easier for those of you that are researching. Please feel free to submit any corrections to me that I may make in error.I, like so many others, found this sight by accident. Find A Grave has been my source of comfort from so many caring and loving people. I would like to thank everyone that has visited and left flowers and a note for my family, it has truly brought such comfort to me. I have read about a lot of wonderful people and hope that I too have brought comfort to there family as well.
I would like to honor and give thanks to everyone that goes from cemetery to cemetery and or transcribes cemetery records, graves and/or takes pictures. Your hard work and generosity does not in any way go unnoticed to anyone researching. You are truly angels on earth to the ones searching for a loved one or ancestor's burial place.I have found some of my family that I would have never known if it were not for the ones that transcribe...Thank you all! Keep up the good work! God Bless To Everyone!

I want to thank everyone that visits my family and leaves tokens and notes. Sometimes, I get so overwhelmed and behind on my Thank You's, but please know that they do not go unnoticed. From the bottom of my heart & soul I am touched with each one. Love To All & God Bless!

I have been a very generous person when it comes to sharing my family history and my photo's. I have noticed as well as others have brought it to my attention, that there are a few people that will copy the photo's and/or stories and post as if they had contributed them rather than give the person credit from where they got it!This includes duplicating memorials as well as adding to their trees on is common courtesy to ask permission to use a photo from the owner or original contributor,Although I do not expect anyone to ask me for permission, just give me or the person credit for their work!!!!!
I agree with another member's profile:

I think it is a real shame what find A Grave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.
With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them.

Hester Pauline (Easley) Watson Judd
I sent a name correction that did not let me finish before it sent.

Easley was her maiden name

Watson was her 1st husband and Judd her 2nd husband.

I was going to switch the Easley and Watson so all names would be there and Easley would be in the maiden name place.

It sent without me finishing and when I tried to go back to it.Then it informs me that I already sent a name request.

Oh, my goodness, Linda - I wish findagrave could make the "edit emails" we send OUT look really different from the ones we get IN from others...I was going thru the ones I sent to see who had not answered mine & found YOURS to ME! Of course I will transfer - so happy to do that, Cheers~ Shirleen (next time rattle my cage with a public message, okay?)

Thank you
Thanks so much for the sweet note you left at my son, Brad's memorial - I read through your family & the loss of your Marine brother really touched my heart! Special blessing that your Mom can now see he is okay.

RE: Angelina West Anderson
I wonder if those graves were moved from Paradise Cemetery. ??? That's all underwater now, you know. They put in the Smithville dam and it totally took the whole town of Paradise. Some graves were moved, but you know there had to be a lot that had no one to care enough to pay for transferring to another cemetery. I hate to see that happen, but it does, all the time.

Maggie Shropshire photo request
Grove Hill Cemetery does not provide Findagrave volunteers burial locations to fill requests.

Please contact Grove Hill cemetery and get the burial location for your request: 214-381-7118

There are over 136 photo requests at this cemetery because the office will not provide the volunteers with locations but will provide a location to a family member if you call and ask for it.
