Bio and Links
Bio Photo NOTE: As of March 2015, I've made it through surgery and chemotherapy, and the cancer seems to be gone. I'm very hopeful, and very appreciative of all the words of kindness and encouragement.

As of August 2014, I'm dealing with my mother's recent death and my own recent cancer diagnosis. Please be patient with any suggestions / edits you send. Thanks in advance!

[PLEASE read (starting with para. 2) before contacting me about a memorial; it will save us both time and trouble. Thanks!]

I'm a history major and a lawyer (University of Virginia, Emory University;) a fanatic about live music (Todd Rundgren, Gene Owens, the blues;) and a photographer. I'm a wife and a mother (a son who recently graduated from law school at the University of Georgia and a daughter who recently graduated from Tulane.) I have a house full of rescued dogs and cats.

If I'm the caretaker of a memorial for someone who was closer to you than to me, I'll consider transferring that memorial to you; feel free to ask, but please include DETAILS as to your relationship to the deceased.

If you have additional information or links that you want added to a memorial, please send details and DO include links to your SOURCES: I'm unlikely to make additions/links if I can't verify their accuracy

All requests for transfers, all suggestions, and all corrections MUST be sent via the edit tab on the memorial in question. If you use the "Other" option you'll be able to send an explanation of, and links to, your sources for suggested changes to a memorial.

If you need to write me at my email address about something else (e.g., a suggestion or correction I've sent you,) PLEASE include a copy of any relevant correspondence and a link to the memorial(s) in question.

If I've posted a cemetery photograph that you want to use on Ancestry, please feel free to do so IF and ONLY IF you include the entire caption as the photograph description. You MUST get my express permission to use any of my photographs OTHER than those taken in cemeteries.

RE: Illness, Insurance Companies, &c.
Thanks. I may need names. We are filing an appeal for all the tests. Seems funny, but they will approve after first of year when my 2600 deductible will start over. Went to neuro specialist Monday and she thinks it might be auti-immune related. Have three kinds documented. Go back to family guy tomorrow for a what to do now session. I think he is going to order several "little" scans that insurance company has said they will pay now. Ha! AT least they will have to pay something. Thanks for being concerned. Thankfully my hubby has retired and is toting me around. Stay well and have a HaPPy TuRKeY DaY !!!

RE: Asa V. Bradrick
Thank you for your response. Just thought Asa is an unusual name, and combined with initial V and last name Bradrick even moreso. No rush on this question. Thank you.

RE: parky Pride Butterworth
Parky Pride Butterworth - I get messages all the time from family members and other findagravers that are sharing information.
I tend not to get to upset with how I got it - if it checks out - I use it.

This is factual - however you bend it. She is the granddaughter - census confirms that - but.... whatever.

Asa V. Bradrick
Hi~~Hope you are doing well, and thank you for all your work. I just noticed an Asa V. Bradrick in Washington and thought the name might be more than coincidence. I have an ancestor by same name in Union County, Indiana. Do you know what the "V" stands for in your Asa? Thought there might be a family connection.

RE: George Calvert in both cemeteries
Thank You. What is the best way to send you the data and SAC so that you will start honoring our requests here from Washington state so that we can all be happy with our more complete and linked memorials? We really all want the same thing. I cant imagine the number of requests you get and most go deleted, even if the data verification is sent to you as well, making more work and frustration for everyone.
Let's work together please. Regards, Rosalie
