Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in findagrave started when I worked on a family tree for my husband. We found some of his relatives and where they are buried through this site. It was comforting to look at their headstones and imagine what life was like for them more than 200 years ago.
I would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and effort in photographing and documenting the grave sites. I was so impressed with their work that now I am a volunteer and I enjoy spending my free time at the cemeteries documenting headstones of which some, unfortunetly, will be totaly unreadable in a few years.
In photographing cemeteries I noticed some of the older, hard to read headstones have been scratched to try and make out a name or date. I DO NOT alter the headstones in any way, instead, I take several photos from different angels to try to read them.
If you find any mistakes, please contact me. I am not perfect and do make mistakes and when they are pointed out to me I gladly make the correction.

Any photo from a cemetery that I've posted at Find-A-Grave may be used for family trees, personal use, etc.

RE: Downing memorials
Your are so nice. Thank you for transferring them. Just in the last few days I realized I could ask to maintain my close relatives when I realized someone had posted my mother and father's graves. I should have but wasn't sure how to do it, so I have learned a lot in the last week! I thought it would be nice to link the family together as I searched on them I found many were not linked. Thank you again for posting them initially and the transfer. Sincerely, Claire

Hello Monica, Thank you for posting the graves of my Grandmother and Uncle and little cousin. Would you be willing to transfer them to me? I have many other relatives I would like to link them all too. I am very new at this and would understand if you hesitated. I would sincerely appreciate the transfer of:

Napier Family Lewis Chapel Cemetery
Hi Monika

My great grandmother was a Napier. If you want to transfer, feel free, although not direct descendants, I am researching these too.

Napier Family Lewis Chapel Cemetery
Thank you for finding the Napier family for me. William Waynick Napier and Ada Smith Napier are buried there (you have not yet created Ada's memorial) I have linked their sons: Rex, Roy, Robert, Romeo; to their father and would appreciate you linking them to their mother Ada. Still looking for one more brother Ruel? and 3 sisters.

Thanks for all you do for findagrave.

Monika, just wanted to let you know the correction you sent for Edna Ladnier #120263613 in D'Iberville Cemetery is wrong, the one I have listed is the correct one. You may want to delete he request.

Indian Springs Cem.
I was wondering if you were related to anyone in Indian Springs Cemetery, on Lott Rd. I have just 36 Cantrell's in my Corley tree. The only Cantrell I have that I might could associate you with is actually in my Williams family, specifically my 2nd great grandfather was John Walter "Jack" Williams, b. 1869. He married a 2nd time to a Maggie Cantrell. Do you have a connection with her?
