Bio and Links
I enjoy being able to link family members or add obituaries and other information and welcome additional information or corrections for any memorials that I have recorded.
I do extensive research with the local papers, and when I find an article that might help someone else I try to pass it on.
I try to be as thorough and correct as possible, while helping as many people possible to preserve and share the stories of those who have gone on before us.
If you find an error in anything I have posted, please let me know. As we all know, everyone makes mistakes from time to time.
I do not as a rule make transfers, unless it follows the Find A Grave guidelines, I will gladly make any connection, or corrections needed.

RE: Barber / Middleton 118095915
That's why this "community" works, we work together! Mistakes happen! By working together mistakes can be caught and corrected, and memorials and photos can be matched.

As I said before, I have been going around photographing all the local cemeteries to create a local database. Since many of these already have online memorials and accompanying photos, I go through the listings to see what if anything I can add for each cemetery. As a result, I sometimes come across duplicates and or other mistakes. You are wonderful about checking and correcting where necessary. Sometimes I have wait for Find A Grave to intervene.

Thank you again! All your hard work and effort is much appreciated.

RE: Richard Smith
Thank you! You could have transferred the memorial. I would have deleted mine. SO long as the grave is correctly registered, I'm not worried about who registered the memorial. :)

Austen B. Haynes #130479043
Thanks for creating memorials for Austen B. Haynes #130479043 and his wife, Catherine Haynes buried at Farnham Baptist Church Cemetery. I was hoping that you had found them! I was able to link their sons, Benjamin Franklin Haynes and Augustin B. Haynes. Both are buried with markers at St. Pauls Cemetery in Marion, Md. They have interesting biographies. Both were highly respected educators who taught at Marion Academy.

Have you run across other children of Austen and Catherine Ward?

Thanks again for all your work.

Thomas Richard Hanks
I believe that the person that you have suggested as the father of Thomas Richard Hanks is actually Thomas Richard Hanks himself. Have I missed something? Thanks!

Sunnybank Cemetery
Can't thank you enough for the countless hours of research and field work you have done to create such meaningful memorials for my family buried at Sunnybank Cemetery. The links to their Smith Island parents are simply amazing. I never would have known where they ended up, who they married, and what they did, without your contributions. Thank you for taking to heart, "Gone, but not forgotten." Valerie

RE: Eskridge/Jett

I have several memorials that have no photos, how would you like me to do this send the request through on the memorial or send you an email.

Thank you again for your prompt reply.
