Bio and Links
Bio Photo I spend a lot of time with my oldest grandson, Aidan. His little brother came along recently and so far my oldest continues to remind me that he is my number one.

Genealogy is something I started doing about twenty years ago with the goal of recording "the original ten"; they where the seven boys and three girls of my grandparents. That has grown to over 5,500 people now, of which many are not Waldrops.

Pen, pad and digital camera are with me wherever I go ready to record whatever catches my eye. If you see someone with two little dogs, Brandy and Buffy, the old geezer will be me.

#66650838 Frazier Shipman you posted a really nice photo of the top of the marker. It looks like there is writing on the front of the marker as well. I just wondered if you knew what it said, perhaps have a photo of that as well? Thank you for this memorial and all the other ones I see your name on every day!

Justus connections
I want to thank you first of all for giving of your time and resources to help people through your work with Find A Grave. It is greatly appreciated. I appreciate so very much being able to see the tombstones of my extended family that otherwise I would never be able to see. I can no longer even visit the nearer ones. Would you mind very much if I make copies of the ones you have added to Find A Grave for my families on Ancestry and Family TreeMaker? I am currently doing Justus connections but I have a very large family file. Most of mine are in the NC area and both my Mom and my Dad had very large family connections.
Thank you again for your great work.

Thanks you for posting my dads burial site. I lost him in 2010 and have suffered greatly form it. I am the only child and was very close to him and miss him so much it hurts to my soul. I know he is not suffering anymore but it just seems like yesterday he was with me when my 16 year old was born. Thank you for your work and dedication for this site and for those of us whom have lost precious members of our family. Keep up the hard work it does not go without notice.

Gilstrap Family Cemetery
Hi Ray,

Do you have a location on this cemetery? Since it's so new the GENWEB project doesn't have it mapped and I would like to get a GPS on it for Find A Grave. If you could get a GPS for it I can get it added, if you have time by going back to the cemetery and using a phone app to get the GPS coordinates.

thanks, Karyn

WV Simmons
Do you have any info on Simmnos? I have been looking for 5 years for WV. If this is even the correct person. My mom will not discuss him so I have very little info except that he married my grandmother Nettie Mae Garrett in the mid 70's. I know he was previously married to someone else. No clue on siblings, parents or anything. Any help much appreciated.

"Steen" Unknown Grave
Hi! Could you please take a look at

Unknown Waldrop Steen <---
Find A Grave Memorial# 140501860

buried to the far right of:
William David Waldrop, Find A Grave Memorial# 46940133
- Sallie Steen Bracken Waldrop, Find A Grave Memorial# 46940158
- Ella Mildred Waldrop, Find A Grave Memorial# 46940302

Hoping this decedant is related to the Waldrops and that we can find a name for him or her! Any ideas?

Wilda & Regina & Billy Gray
On re-reading Regina's obit, I see Michael & Peggy Gray of Pickens, S.C. are shown as surviving her; probably the connection between Billy & Wilda. I have no idea of when Wilda and Billy became apart. This might help you in digging out some info about the where and when of Billy's second marriage. You can probably acquire maintenance of Billy's memorial so you can make additions.
Hope this is helpful.
