Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love to go to cemeteries and walk among the headstones and wonder about the ones who lie beneath the sod. I am currently photographing cemetery headstones and putting them online. I like to travel when time and money permits. I like "digging" up info to fill in a blank space of an ancestor whether mine or someone else's. .

My daughter Lorelei helps too. I couldn't do what I do without the help of my family members. They are priceless.

Would love for you to visit and leave flowers at my virtual cemeteries..especially the one for Mervil Lee Short in Restland Memorial Park Cemetery in Bishop, Nueces Co., Tx A Marine Veteran who served in the Vietnam War - his memorial number is 25736908

My research of my family includes Swearingen, Westfall,Short, Brinkley, Crawford, Lynch, Ross, Andress, Brown, Glasco, Defore/Defoor, Donaho, Isaacs/Isaacks and many others.

I also try to research on my granddaughter's side of her father's family. Locklear, Cochran, Richardson, Williams, Horton, Weems and Wolfe

You are welcome to copy any headstone photos I have placed on any memorial. I do not believe in a "copyright" on headstone photos as they are accessible to the public in most any cemetery. I would appreciate being notified you have done so.

William J Watkins # 65956774
It looks like William was born October 1873 in Alabama according to 1900 census records. Various census records seem to indicate Alabama. His family lived in DeKalb, AL in 1860, although I don't find any confirmation that this is the birth location. They lived in Hamilton Co. TN in 1880, which was his father's birthplace. I didn't find an 1870 record. I have submitted a couple of edits to reflect this, and his middle name.

William and Susan Ann (Susie) Smith were married in Comanche County, TX, January 8, 1895.

Good evening, Wanda,

I am researching the Scroggins family in Louisiana and I found your Find A Grave page for Lela Powell Scroggins Mem.# 83155002. I wanted to let you know that there is another listing for this person in Masonic Cemetery in Richland Parish, Louisiana, Mem.# 40290407. By the way, you had a note on her page about the town of Manghan, Franklin Parish. There is a town in Richland Parish named Mangham, so that may be the town you were looking for. Thanks for all the work you do for the families of these folks, we do appreciate it.

Thanks for the transfer. I've started a Virtual Cemetery named "To Flower" so that I'll know to check and add a flower every year.

RE: Clarence, Delia Westfall and Lillie Fee
You are very welcome. Fortunately, they were all on the same row, and I had already photographed some of them.
