|Bio and Links|
I had been on findagrave for several years, but only became active when I found photos of family tombstones. I requested photos of my grandparents' graves in California and had my request answered within two weeks. I was so grateful that I became a volunteer myself. |
I have been interested in genealogy since I took a course in the 1970s, but only became really active when I discovered all the wonderful Internet resources a few years into my retirement. (As all retirees know, retirement just means you don't get paid anymore for the work you do, but you get to choose your projects.) I guess I should describe myself as semi-retired. I still earn a pittance as a freelance writer/editor, and I lead small groups of adults in exercises to improve writing skills and clear writers' block. Many of these are people writing their memoirs or family histories.
I maintain a database of Blanco County, Texas pioneers and their descendants whose families are interrelated by birth or marriage. See it on Rootsweb.com
I took a lot of tombstone photos in Blanco County, Texas in the summer of 2012. Most of these are people very distantly related or not related at all. If you see your family here, please inquire about a transfer. I would like to see all these families in the care of close relatives.

Laura A Walters Boutwell stone is 1905 death date for I can see it good, so Barney Eaton Boutwell #44187887 must not be her son.

I would like to visit this cemetery and photograph the gravestones there to upload to findagrave.com.
I see that you have listed several memorials in this cemetery and perhaps you can give me directions and perhaps GPS coordinates. Also the names and telephone numbers of anyone I have to contact for permission to visit this cemetery.

I moved the memorial. If it is the right place I don't expect to hear from you; however, let me know if this is not the correct cemetery and I need to move it again.

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to fix her burial location. I really appreciate your suggestion on correcting her memorial. Thank you again.

Readded the photos. BamaFann adds cemetery information from record surveys and if the memorial is a member of or ancestor of your family he usually has no issue transferring the memorial. I know you had some extra information on yours.

Thank you. I have been trying to remove one photo, but there must be a glitch at the moment, because it won't allow me to right now.
