Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Knoxville TN and I enjoy exploring graveyards.

After I retired, my cousin asked me to find out where my gg grandfather was buried. I found that a memorial had been created on

I started looking for other ancestors and there were some on findagrave and others were missing.

I decided to start adding missing memorials for my family and to document the entire cemetery where possible timewise and weatherwise.

If I've created a memorial of your family member or friend, I'd be happy to transfer.

I don't delete the supernumerary memorial, because the headstone is still in the cemetery. If I deleted it, someone else would come along, see the headstone, and create a new memorial for it.

I added a note about the location of his actual burial.
Strangely enough, this is not that infrequent of an occurrence. I know of at least five people who have headstones in two different cemeteries and one woman who has two headstones in different places in the same cemetery. In some cases, I know where they are actually buried. In some, it is anybody's guess.
The saddest one I know of is a man with a double headstone and the inscription "Together Forever." His wife's name and date of birth are on the stone, but she is buried elsewhere in a different cemetery with her second husband.

Glad you like the new picture. It was from the British Isles cruise we took in July.

I hate communism. And I hate Stalin most of all communists. It gave me a great deal of pleasure to stick my fingers up his nose!

I am retired and usually have time to make most changes/updates on the same day they are submitted. Unless I am traveling and away from home.

Hello Tommie,

Thank you for maintaining my husband's ancestor's memorial for Mollie Luster Lawson. I noticed links to parents's memorials - but these are not her actual parents. Is it possible to remove those links?

Thank you
I just found my wife's page (added by another findagrave member) but saw the tribute you left. Actions from others speak louder than words.. I appreciate this more than I can say, cousin. God bless you,

Good eye Tommy. Thanks for the heads up!

I'm praying my little heart out. It's a slow time comin' but I think I see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Either that or we're going to be hit by a train.
