|Bio and Links|
I retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. As a person that sleeps only 4 hours a night that leaves 20 hours to fill. Sitting home is not an option. Now, I drive a school bus 5 hours a day and visit cemeteries every chance I get. I have never been to a cemetery that charged admission and seldom is there a crowd. My wife, Sandra, is of a like mind so it works well. We both enjoy the hunt and the thrill that comes with each discovery. Let us know if we can help. If you have additional information on one of my post or you are a relative and want ownership, I will gladly transfer it to you. Just ask. Oh! By the way just call me Doc!|
NOTE: Many times the family plot has names different from those on the headstone. I always attempt to provide a reference point for markers. Hope this is not confusing.
Two quotes worth remembering:
"Tread softly, dreams are buried here." Unknown
"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended. --Mady Castro

|M. Shumate||Julia and Charles Shumate--please transfer|
Dearest Doc, I was starting to work on Wayne Shumate and noticed you have his parents Julia and Charles. Would you be kind enough to transfer them to me also. Again, blessings and thanks.
|M. Shumate||RE: Transfer please|
Thanks Doc, and God Bless.
|Jonnie in SC||Thanks!|
Thanks so much, Doc, for the transfer of Myrtle Howie. You so kind to contribute to FindaGrave and so generously share.
|Melba & Barry Finley||Memorial 28313346|
I am not sure but I think maybe the other memorial is a dupe of the one you did. It is a little confusing because the name is the same but the dob and dod is what is concerning. I have added the doc below. I believe your info is correct but not the other one. You may want to contact them and see if they will verify their information. As I believe it is a duplicate with the incorrect dates.

Dear Doc, Would you please transfer Wayne Climan Shumate to me as he is one of my grandfathers. Blessings and thank you.
|Susan I. Grills||RE: Slow speed|
I find it much slower too, Richard! I had been wondering if it was just time to clear cookies from my computer. But maybe it is findagrave site!
