Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank YOU to everyone leaving tokens/notes to the memorials I have added. If you so desire and have time, I would appreciate very much if you could leave tokens/notes for my precious Mom and Daddy.

Please feel free to use any of my photos. I believe in sharing.

Before adding a memorial, PLEASE check to see if the Cemetery already exists.

Also, PLEASE, PLEASE before adding a memorial, check to see if the deceased has been added previously. I have found tons of duplicates in Rice Field Cemetery, Franklin County, Tennessee. If you add a NEW memorial, could you please leave a token of some kind? Everyone deserves to be recognized.....It's horrible to click on a memorial and not find at least one token. Thank YOU!!

If I've made errors or you wish to have an entry removed or transferred, please let me know and I will gladly accommodate.

The following is something with a lot of meaning and I thought you all might like to read it, also.

Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest neglected and alone. The name and date are chiselled out on polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care; It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist; you died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone.

Our blood contracts and beats a pulse; entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you.

Thank YOU, Joanie

You're my great-great Uncle on my Mom's side. I have been researching the Hinshaw/Henshaw families. It was great to find YOU on Find A Grave. Thank YOU to the person listing your memorial. YOU will be forever in our hearts. Blessings to YOU.....
- Joanie

Hi Joanie,

I'm Jana, the manager of Thomas's memorial. He was my 3rd great grandpa. I've been able (with help) to trace the family back to Europe. Surprisingly we have royal ancestry! I have a family tree on Geni. It's free unlike ancestry. You can email me at if you want more info.

I would just have to connect you to Thomas and Eliza to add you to the tree!

Blessing to you too!

RE: Jack Wayne Morris
First of all, I want to extend my sympathy to you in the loss of your uncle. So sorry... I had a cousin to pass away this weekend, also. And also so glad I sent the obit to you in time for you to attend the funeral. Just goes to show how great things can work when everyone works together!

Hickory Grove Cemetery
Hi Joanie,
Are you familiar with Hickory Grove Cemetery near Huntland in Franklin County, Tennessee? It is on Findagrave and I have found references to it. But I can not find anything that shows where it is. Would you have any idea where it is? Thank you.
