Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started manually working on my genealogy around 1990 scraping together pieces of paper that my mother had written tidbits on, then talking to my great-aunt, aunts and uncles to get more info. Once I was able to electronically compile my genealogy it felt like starting over but my tree has branched enormously since then. I have walked a few cemeteries dragging my husband along who has graciously help hunt for tombstones. I have been interested in cemeteries since my youth. The age of modern technology has help tremendously in having instant photos. I am now retired and spend tons of time cleaning up my tree. I get a little obsessed wanting it to be as accurate as possible. We have 16 grandchildren and one great-grandchild...our house is full on special gatherings. I truly appreciate everyone who is involved in genealogy and thank you in advance for all that you have to offer.

Colum O' Farrell
Hi My name is colum I wish you to pass this message on to your admin. A guy calling himself Anonymous sent me details of a relatives grave and I was making arrangments to have a Headstone erected.A friend of mine was in Brooklyn where the grave is in, Holycross Brooklyn and took a photo and mailed it to me, there is a headstone there already with another familys name on it and my familys name at the bottom. Your mr Anonymous sent me details on your headed paper with a photo of a grave and an Americian flag he says he inserted to have the photo taken. I am so disappointed That this has happened. I know that findagrave are doing a good job but you do not need people like this working for your cause.

I am trying to get grave plot markings to take pictures of tombstones, but I need at least a general idea of a death date for him.

I do remember seeing the tombstone for Martha Ella Shackleford if you would like to add a tombstone photo request for her however since I searched only for the requested photos I didn't pay a lot of attention to other graves.

Regarding the two Memorials for the Ridley infant twin daughters I only found one tombstone and the inscription leads one to think both twins are buried together, not in seperate graves.

RE: Ridley-Davis Cemetery

Yes, I do remember seeing the name Thadeus on a tombstone at Ridley-Davis Cemetery today. In fact I remember seeing several names that did not have tombstone photos but I only did the ones with requests. Hopefully soon I may get out that way again since I have another request in that area.
Now I have a question for you.
The request for Mary Taylor is confusing. The name Mary Amanda Davis Taylor appears twice listed under siblings with differebt Birth and Death dates. The only stone I could find in this small cemetery was for Mary Taylor with the dates 1818-1849 but thisw does not match the dates on the request. Are their two sisters buried there with different birth and death dates or is this the same person. The tombstone photo is already on one of the sisters so I didn't add it since the dates are not the same.

RE: Inman Cemetery
They were rotated correctly when I uploaded them, but for some reason findagrave rotated them an extra time.
