(John C. Carter)|
(Will be spending part of the summer in southwestern Maine).
Happy to photograph at any cemetery in the Tampa Bay, FL area! (or in the Lakes Region of SW Maine).
Born in Dover, DE, (to parents from NJ & WV), I lived in southern CA until age 12, & then in Raton, (a small town in N.E. New Mexico), which I consider my home town. I attended NM State Univ for 4 years (with a 1-yr exchange to Oregon State Univ), but did not complete a degree at that time, & later moved back to southern CA, settling in the Orange County area. After 10 yrs in the O.C., I moved to St. Petersburg, FL (Tampa Bay area) in 1990, & have been here ever since.
I have avidly worked on my family's genealogy since the age of 15 ... 42 years ago!
I am a 27-yr member (and former chapter registrar) of the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) with 7 qualifying ancestors submitted (more to come!), a member of the SUVCW (Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War) with 10 qualifying ancestors or brothers of ancestors (more to come!), a member of the SVR (Sons of Veterans Reserve--affiliated with the SUVCW), a member of the S&DUSCT (Sons & Daughters of U.S. Colored Troops), a member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indians of New Jersey, and an associate member of the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware.
(Click on my profile pic above to read the story of the Civil War ancestor with whose headstone I'm posing).
I'm very proud that every single branch of my ancestry has been in America since at least pre-Revolutionary times.
Having taken numerous college courses over the years, I finally bit the bullet & enrolled in a program in 2003 to complete my degree, & graduated from Eckerd College (a local, private, liberal arts college) in May 2005 with a B.A. in Creative Writing.
Besides genealogy & writing, my other interests include: clock collecting, books, movies, photography, geocaching, the Civil War, the space program, many types of music, & visiting cemeteries!
Thanks to the creators of this site for doing such a great job!

Thank you so much for the photo!!
|Carole D.||RE: Your suggested edit for Garland James|
As long as you have his complete name, that is fine. Don't want him confused with Garland James, his Grandfather.
|Debbie Adams||RE: Photo request for Robert Stephen Oste at Bay Pines|
For one thing, I don't know why my photos end up sideways. That's not how it looks when I upload it. Have you experienced that? And the photo I uploaded was a photo request so I don't why they keep requesting a photo. But I went ahead and deleted my picture so you can upload yours.
|Pam McNary||RE: Duplicate memorial|
Yes. That does help. Thank you! I had also photographed my aunts grave, but the original memorial has a better bio. I have requested the merging of the two, as you suggested. I appreciate it.
|Pam McNary||Duplicate memorial|
Hello. You've recently brought it to my attention that I had created a memorial that you had already created, and have asked me to remove mine. I was not aware of it at the time, and I have not seen the one that you created, but this memorial is for my aunt, and I'd like it to remain...?
|Marlene Chaney||Fred and Virginia Wentworth|
Thank you for posting the gravestone photos from Edes Falls Cemetery.
