Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a child, my mother was always bringing us on Cemetery hunts and we spent many hours making grave rubbings and walking thru the monuments . I get great satisfaction in being a Find a Grave volunteer and am on my own search for my family who went before me and helped to make my life the blessing that it is. I'm gratified to know that I am able to unite in such a small way, families who are in search of each other.

Family names I am researching are Curtis, Hollis, Crofut, Burt, Gates, Melow, Sutherland, Watts, McKay, Cady, Sherwood, Pitts, Parker, Thompson, Pyle to name a few.

Thank you to everyone who contributes to this wonderful website and the intensely important business of perpetuating history by documenting the people and their contributions that have gone and lived before us, gave us life, and a reason to live. God Bless you all.

If you have time please visit my family's war veterans and a very special young man who I had the privilidge of knowing, Lt. Timothy Steele who died in Afganistan.

RE: Sarah Wakely
who is your profile picture she is beautiful. Do you know if your Curtiss family spelled their name Curtice. I have Curtice in my family it changed to Curtis. When I found Virtue Curtis I wonder if that is who my dad was names after, Virtue is my dad's 3rd Great Grandmother. My dad's name was Curtis

RE: Lockwood Gould pictures
You are so welcome. I am very happy that I have been able to help you, as members of the community have helped me. I found a third cousin through Find A Grave, and she had traced two lines of our family back to their arrival in the 1600's. I was able to share the information I had with her.

You may certainly use my pictures, no credit is necessary. It has been my pleasure to help.

RE: Mary Louisa Lockwood
It is I again. The four stones of Hezikiah, her brother, Mary, her mother, Hezikiah's and Mary's are all in a very neat row. I can take a shot of this the next time I am there--it is only about a mile down the road--if you would like me to add that to Mary Louisa's memorial. I can put it on the bottom. Let me know.
