Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi!

A little about me...I'm a amateur photographer/genealogist/findagraver as well as an extremely proud mommy to six children (3 girls/3boys) and 16 grandchildren! :) I've been working on my own family tree since about 1994...not long after my Grama passed away...she raised me and so I do occasionally refer to her as my Mommy. Family that I am working on are Sanders, Denny/Denney, Cummins, Daglish, McCord, Heater, Galbreath and Lobb. I live with my best Ed as I call him! and our doggie, Jettie. I found Findagrave while researching our family and have been a die hard "Graver" since!

Update: Married my best friend, My Ed, Oct 3, 2014 and am now officially a "new" person lol

PLEASE If you want to request a transfer or updates to memorials do that through the "edit" tab/suggest a correction!!!! When I have many many many edits/transfers/messages to read and answer it gets frustrating to have to look up the memorials for each request when if done correctly I can just click on the link included with the suggestion/edit...quicker for me to get it done for you :) :)

If someone has an issue with any memorial I am involved with please be polite and adult and send a note through the SAC feature and I'll gladly do whatever I can to make you happy! Leave me a rude hateful message and I'll first delete it and then forget about it. That way I'm returning the favor!

From Find A Grave's FAQ...
"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

I have no problem whatsoever doing any updates or links to my memorials and definitely will transfer if I'm not related and you have a direct connection.
I love being able to link up entire families as far back or forward as possible!!! It's like a big puzzle and I also love puzzles :) It gives me a great feeling to get one done! I always try to find a little information to add to the memorials that I create so that it is more than the mere fact that someone was born and they died. Sometimes I'm unsuccessful but believe me I usually spend some time searching before I give up! Stubborness I guess lol.
If I ever add a picture to a memorial that you would rather I didn't please let me know but I prefer to hear from the "manager" of the memorial.

Thank you for the multiple photos of my kids' ancestor's grave. You are a gem and I can tell by your profile bio that you are a kindred spirit, too. Happy graving! Margie

Mary Graves Denny
Hi Colleen, Thank you for creating the Memorials for the Denny Family. In your research of the Denny Family, Have you found a marriage between a Denny and a Torrentine sometimes spelled Turrentine
Family.Or a Denny and a Foster Family??
We keep finding the names: William Denny and
Denny Columbus Franklyn running through the Foster Family but we can't figure out where the Denny came from. Any help you could give us would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much, Judy Church

Charles/Lydia Chittenden Memorials
Hi Colleen, I got a text from Park Cemetery office that Charles death date is Jan 27,1897. Looks like the top picture on Charles memorial is actually for Lydia and his memorial has her death date. Could you switch the picture to her memorial please and correct his death date? Thank you so much and keep up the good work.....appreciate it. Charles #114339669
