Bio Photo I am a Florist by profession and a photographer for fun. I have been researching my family forest for several years now. My family includes McPeak, Parkinson, Phelps, Blacklidge, Turner, Harper, Nation, Upton, McMurphy, Raney, Anderson, Morris, Floyd ,Mattingly and Woodruff. If anyone wants to use my photographs for their family trees, you are welcome to do so. Please give me credit when using them.

*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•* Dear Ancestor *•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*
"Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you."

RE: Chastain
Beulah or Robert Chastain ... that is so bizarre. I certainly would not have removed "first wife". Sometime ... when I go to make an edit to add the parents ... the spouse's number shows on the edit page ... and I had nothing to do with adding the spouse. Sometime it will not take the edit ... and says "an edit for the spouse has already been made" ... and as I said ... I have nothing to do with adding the spouse. I've heard it called "the Find A Grave glitch", and I wish that they would get it fixed. When I went and looked at your declined edit ... there were a few more there, and I do not remember having them declined ... and the reason that they were declined was "you've submitted this edit 4 times". LOL I laughed. I have never submitted an edit more than once, that I am aware of ... and it totally confused me, and I thought to myself ... it must be a GLITCH again. Plus, I do not ever remember the edit being declined or me being notified that it was. LOL So ... I am glad that I wrote to you and asked. I will submit another edit. Thank you for getting back to me, and we will chalk this up to the infamous "Find A Grave Glitch". God bless ...
