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 15 going on 16 grandchildren! One more due this year :-) 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, and kitty cat Walter. I found Findagrave while researching our family and have been a die hard "Graver" since!

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

RE: henry Wilking
I have been looking for years for David and Nancy Ehrhart - David b 1820 - haven't found him in 1870 census - but a family Bible says he died in 1873
Nancy b 1824 died 1868 - supposedly in Chili Ind
My ancestor was raised by his older sister Sarah Ryder there - they moved to Summitville later

I live in Texas now - really need to make a trip up there to check.

If you ever run into them please make a note and let me know

RE: henry Wilking
Oh - ok - I was a bit confused LOL

That's great to know the sections are marked - one of the cemeteries I have been trying to document isn't mark and it's a combined cemetery - 5 now called the same thing - all in about the same place - pretty confusing
Thank you so much

Titus restorations
Colleen, Thank you for your suggestions! I will forward to those who live in the area and ask them to follow through!

I know you and I emailed a few years ago as I am also Cummins, Sanders and Brown of Henry County.
Probably through GenForum as well.

Thanks for all you do!

Why do you have a picture of a Walker family marker on Henry Wilking memorial? Crown Hill Cemetery

Titus Collier Cemetery
Hi Colleen! The Titus tombstones look as though they were recently refurbished. I am one the Titus/McCarty descendants. Just thought I'd take a chance and see if you have any idea of who might have taken on this monumental task. They did a beautiful job restoring!

One of the other family members says they have no idea and we would love to thank them. Any ideas?

RE: Martha Gray, Pleasant Home, Wilkes Co.
I've had several problems since the hacking; hopefully, it will all get straightened out! Thanks Colleen and Happy 4th.

Martha Gray, Pleasant Home, Wilkes Co.
Colleen, I am removing my duplicate of this memorial and have been told you did not get my request and for that I'm sorry. I know I've not gotten two that I know of since (or perhaps during?) the virus hack that Find A Grave had a couple of weeks ago. Thanks for your help and keep up the good work!
