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

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

William Augustus Ballard Davis # 5998531
Hi. What a beautiful job you accomplished with his memorial. Just a question - I have him as William Alexander Ballard Davis, and I have his birthdate as 8/5/1849 and I have his brother Virginius as born Dec. 17, 1851. I must be wrong on the birth dates for one of them. Can you set me straight on that. Thanks so very much.

I am writing to you to ask permission to use the picture of her and her husband's Grave stone.
Also, I have a lot of family buried at this Cemetery since I am from Anderson. Do I have permission to use any pictures you have taken?
Thank You, Karen Lott-Sowers

RE: Aletha Denney Fry

She remarried a Mr. Rucker after David died. I cannot locate her or Mr. Rucker. This explains why David is buried alone. David was my great-grandmother's 1/2 brother. I'll keep looking.

RE: Pendleton Friends Church

I was working on my family genealogy at the time I took a photo of this page at the church. I was looking for my great aunt and uncle and had not gone further in my research at the time. I believe that there was one, but I did take a photo of it. When I tried to contact them later I was told to call certain people of which I did not even get one reply from any of them. The only place that I can think of maybe at the Pendleton Library if they do not have one at the Anderson Library. I sure would like a copy for my family research.
