Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be happy to add additional information or make corrections to memorials I maintain. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to send your info to me and I will update. I transfer all memorials within the four-generation rule. I do not link to "burial unknown" listings.

My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from a now inactive member. I work on these daily to update with info and add photos.

Please do not copy my photos to other websites (including Ancestry) without my permission.

William Groves/Graves
Hi BjJ! I sent corrections for William Groves/Graves, and if you let me know it's been updated then I'll go ahead and delete what I added. Sorry about that - with the misspelling, I didn't notice another memorial in there. I was researching potential mother Ella Polk Taylor and it all looks like it would be a fit, but I'm not confident enough to add her as a link, so I put it in the bio area in case someone else can confirm. Curiosity... with so many under your responsibility, how did you notice that I'd added one?

Thanks for your work on this and the photo. I'm bummed that she has no stone, but I'm finding a lot of ancestors with no stone. I think this happens when the person is the last one living. There is no one left in the area to put a stone on them. (This was the reason for one of my Aunts.)

Anyway, thanks.

RE: Floyd Gallowy Memorial #56394587
You are most welcome. It is funny that the last time I communicated with you is was about a Wheelock who was related to my neighbor, this time it is my extended family. Thanks you for the work that you do.
