|Bio and Links|
Ever since I was a small kid, I've always been interested in my ancestors. I'm sure I drove the older members of my family nuts by always asking who was married to whom and who their kids were.|
As an adult I've traced my lineage back four to seven generations and still enjoy working on filling in the blanks.
I also love to roam around in cemeteries and look for odd and different headstones. I have a scrapbook of photos of these stones that I started years ago and still add to it every chance I get.
My favorite is a stone that I found in a local cemetery in Bentonville, Arkansas... it's a man's headstone and carved by the monument company is this phrase, "I told you I was sick". I literally had to walk up to the stone and touch it to believe it was really there.
I first started using find-a-grave to look up famous people's gravestones, such as Bruce and Brandon Lee, those have to be two of my favorites, they are beautiful.
I finally, just in the last couple of weeks started working on adding information on the cemeteries where I have relatives buried. It's a great way to save and share information.
If you would like to either correct or add to a bio, or contribute any information regarding any memorial I have placed, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all information. Or I'll be more than happy to transfer any memorial page to friends or family. Please put "Find A Grave" in the subject field. Thank you!
If you have a minute please visit daddy's memorial page. Joe W. Vaughn.
and for my gramps, he was/is my special human. Will Vaughn.
...and for all of my FAG friends out there, I want to thank you for all the flowers left on my loved ones pages and all the sponsorships.
Only a member of this awesome family here on Find a Grave could know how much all of this is appreciated! :)
Here is a link to a special little guy, if you have a minute, stop by his page and leave a little something for him.
This is a link to some great pics of some of the military elite & medal of honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
This link will take you to the official Arlington Cemetery site.
I also contribute to a site that focuses on just gravestone in Arkansas. There are so many older cemeteries and the stones are fast fading away. If you have pics of any stones from a cemetery in Arkansas feel free to enter the stone and or the cemetery. It's a relatively new site so everyone with Arkansas gravestones is welcome, the more the merrier! Here is the link.
Enjoy! Bev :)
I just added the dog that 'owned' me for a few blessed years, visit my beloved boy if you get a chance, Sandy Myers.
THE STONE SEEKER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

|Keoni LaGasa||RE: Beatrice LaGasa|
So, sorry it has taken me a bit to e-mail you back. There are questions that aren't answer on the LaGasa side of the family. Now my great grandpa was married to Annie Schimke originally. My dad said he remember Grandma Schimke but then also he remembered a Grandma B. now I don't know if this is Beatrice. She was aside to me for some reason. I really don't know here relation to the family.
Do you know anything about Beatrice and anything about marriage? I know I have family pictures of grandma B but don't know if it would be Beatrice or not. I am trying to find information on that.
|Algernon and Conan Together on the Rainbow Bridge||Hi Bev...|
Thanks for leaving Gina a cup of Starbucks. You don't know how much she would have appreciated that.
|GeorgiaCA||RE: a very different gravestone|
So beautifully written...such joy expressed in that very special marker!
|Cathie Bailey||Edna Marie Daniels|
Hey Bev. You're message is dated 5:01pm yesterday. When I added Marie's memorial (at lunch time) yours didn't show; however, when I was connecting her to family, I did see yours. I immediately went in to delete mine. It must have been there a while before it deleted. Strange....Take care! =0)
