Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been actively researching genealogy for over twenty years. In my experience, I have ofttimes been surprised to learn just how much misinformation is erroneously passed on from generation to generation via family members.

In my investigations, I make every attempt to carefully validate and cross reference each entry that I record. I welcome anyone who comes into possession of contradictory information to immediately contact me so that together we may arrive at a copacetic determination.

It is my primary interest to reflect only the facts in regard to past events in the lives of our loved ones, irrespective of how often the truth may be difficult to accept.

Some of the family names I am researching are Burton, Clinton, Coker, Garrison, Hooper, McClure, Martin, Morgan, Watson, White, and Word.

Please feel free to copy and use any photographs that I have contributed to FAG. No photo credit is necessary.

People who have large numbers of no name cemeteries are, in my opinion, abusing the system created by Find-A-Grave. If you have large numbers of no cemetery memorials, I will not delete a duplicate memorial because of your abuse.

I will not link to burial unknown or no cemetery unless it fits the criteria set by the site:
Under the new guidelines, burial unknowns are subject to removal after 30 days.

Dennis Rhea
Edit for Sallie Sanders Rhea
After looking at the information you gave me, you may be right about her parents. I have had the conflicting information for years, so I will have to go back and see where I got it. If I do find you are right, I'll make the edit. Thanks, Dennis.

RE: Memorial# 120199988
I appreciate you adding the death certificate, but the information on it is questionable at best. Every Census record lists Jim Rhea's State of birth as Missouri, not Tennessee. The DC lists Harvey Rhea and Mary Jane Delashmitt as his parents, but they were actually his "adoptive" parents. As for his age, the first Census record I have found in 1880 lists his age as 12, which would have made his year of birth before 1969. All other Census records and his headstone lists his birth year as 1871. I have researched him for many years, and I have been unable to find out very little to confirm when he was born or who his birth parents were.

I am sorry to bother you again, but since I have to spend so much time reading your messages, I thought that perhaps you could extend me the courtesy of allowing the 30 days to make the multiple edits, before you send daily remarks.

Send those same remarks through the edit, under the section for other corrections, additions, etc. I am not the only one that is no longer going to allow notices in my email box. Anything you have to say to me regarding memorials should be sent via the edit button. That is where we work from.

Thank you

Maybe I'm mistaken about the message I will look into it.

Alana, I don't remember if I made it after I was there or not, but if you look at the message on my page, It is from his grandson Grady.
And regarding DeKalb county/Marshall County they are just a hop skip and jump down the road from New Harmony. We I return I will most definitely try and find the stone and photograph it.

Find A Grave Memorial# 30805561

I have a question regarding this memorial. Did you actually see the grave or did you get the information from a previously done survey of the cemetery?

There are many many people who assume this is the grave of Clark Terrell White. (With the G T actually being a C T). This man's birth and death date has been attributed to Clark.

His wife and children are buried in Marshall County Alabama. I just can't get my head to accept that he ended up buried in DeKalb.

Any light you can shed on your G T White would be greatly appreciated.

Kindest Regards,
Alana Morgan

Alana, I saw where you had an edit to his dates. I am trying to help survey Memory Hill and took a closer picture of his military marker so I could have dates added. It is posted on his memorial. You may use this picture any way needed.
I can't remember if we have talked about the Gorham family. My husband is connected to them and I have been trying to help find HM Gorham Sr. parents without any luck. If you find out anything I would love to know. Dale has a picture of a Gorham that is the "spitting image" of HM Gorham Jr. I know there has to be some connection.

re: Duplicates
Hi Alana,

You wrote:

This is a duplicate of your other memorial for Martha. You really do need to delete this one by Find A Grave rules.

It is also confusing for doing links.

Kindest Regards,
Alana Morgan

I contacted Find-A-Grave and requested that the two memorials, Martha Brooks and Mattie Ann Bunnell Brooks be merged. This should alleviate any future confusion.

I was not the original creator of either memorial. Rightfully so, Find-A-Grave is concerned about contributors deleting memorials that others have created.

I'm maintaining many memorials at Maple Hill Cemetery that were created by someone else.

Thank you for your time and vigilance.

RE: Photo Request
I don't have the plot number for my parents, but I will try to find out. It might take awhile because I'm not sure if we know the plot number. I might try calling the cemetery and see if they will tell me. I have a few others I could ask about at the same time. Thank you for telling me this.
