Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love to go to cemeteries and walk among the headstones and wonder about the ones who lie beneath the sod. I am currently photographing cemetery headstones and putting them online. I like to travel when time and money permits. I like "digging" up info to fill in a blank space of an ancestor whether mine or someone else's. .

My daughter Lorelei helps too. I couldn't do what I do without the help of my family members. They are priceless.

Would love for you to visit and leave flowers at my virtual cemeteries..especially the one for Mervil Lee Short in Restland Memorial Park Cemetery in Bishop, Nueces Co., Tx A Marine Veteran who served in the Vietnam War - his memorial number is 25736908

My research of my family includes Swearingen, Westfall,Short, Brinkley, Crawford, Lynch, Ross, Andress, Brown, Glasco, Defore/Defoor, Donaho, Isaacs/Isaacks and many others.

I also try to research on my granddaughter's side of her father's family. Locklear, Cochran, Richardson, Williams, Horton, Weems and Wolfe

You are welcome to copy any headstone photos I have placed on any memorial. I do not believe in a "copyright" on headstone photos as they are accessible to the public in most any cemetery. I would appreciate being notified you have done so.

Emily L. Barrow Smith
Emily was my great-grandmother. Your note on her FindaGrave page is accurate.

You said "I received information that the Rachel listed as Emily's mother was actually her stepmother."

If the dates are accurate, Rachel and Emily were both born in the same year, 1840.

Emily's mother was Lucinda LaFore(or DeVore) Barrow.

Inez Hester mangum
Wanda, I got very mixed up today between this woman who married W A Mangum and the woman I was looking for Inez Emmitt Mangum who married A R Mangum. I sent in an edit for her name. Please ignore it. Thanks.

Stidman Judkins-44789662
This man's correct name is Zachariah M. Stidham. For unknown reasons he is buried on the Judkins plot with this incorrect name. We are in the process of getting a new marker for him as his was destroyed a number of years ago and never replaced. If you are a descendant please contact me, at

Thank you so much for taking the time to add my dad's gravesite information here. As I'm so far away, this makes it easier to visit when I miss him.

RE: Lanham
Hi, Wanda! Thank you for checking on Winnie Lanham's memorial. I would have gladly turned the two memorials in for merger so that you could have stayed the manager. Thanks again.
