Bio and Links
Bio Photo Single mother of two sons ~ 1 has 2 legs the other has 4.

Spent my adult life working in customer service and as a caregiver to terminally ill friends and family. I have watched dementia and Alzheimers destroy memories that can never be recovered. It is for that reason I feel that each and every memorial should include as much information as possible. I have been told that this site is merely a database for locations of graves. And it is my opinion that if that were true we wouldn't be posting flowers & messages. We wouldn't be adding photos and bios. We would have nothing more than John Smith row 4 plot 7 Sunny Acres Cemetery.

~~~~~ABOUT PHOTOS~~~~~

Most of my memorials are created from grave photos. I search the site before I create the memorial. If I find that I have created a memorial and subsequently find that it is a duplicate of a BU memorial I send an Edit to the contributor advising them of the grave location and that I have a photo of the grave. If the location is added to the memorial I will post the grave photo and delete the memorial I created.

If the contributor does not respond or update the location within 30 days then I will keep my memorial and it's photo in place. As per the site guidelines the contributor is supposed to update the location within 30 days of creating it.

If I have posted a picture of a grave marker it is a picture that I have taken myself. I place no monetary value on these photos. I took the pictures to create or complete memorials and provide photo documentation of the grave site. If family or friends would like a copy of the grave site photos they are welcome to them.

Thank You!
Thank you for taking the photo of the community grave. I didn't know for sure that John Gmeiner was buried there until your photo posted!

I tried to look up the memorial # #34244144) and the name, and he is not in Gilliam or in Green Valley cemeteries.
please let me know if I need to do anything for you.

Really LIKED your comments about moving graves for a new hwy, byway, strip mall, etc!! They do that plenty here in SO CAL. Unfortunately they call it "Progress" and then call the sites Defunct, so go figure, as I wish it would Stop also. Happy Graving! m

Minor Smith McLain's Grave
Hi Mary,

I'm his granddaughter by his son Minor Horne Mclain. My dad never really knew his father as he and his mother divorced when he was very young. My dad recently passed away. I was already doing genealogical search for more info on my grandfather starting in 2000 when I first got on the "net". I just joined this site as I will be adding my dad's grave later this month. I'll be adding my profile here soon also.
