Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ever since I was a small kid, I've always been interested in my ancestors. I'm sure I drove the older members of my family nuts by always asking who was married to whom and who their kids were.
As an adult I've traced my lineage back four to seven generations and still enjoy working on filling in the blanks.
I also love to roam around in cemeteries and look for odd and different headstones. I have a scrapbook of photos of these stones that I started years ago and still add to it every chance I get.
My favorite is a stone that I found in a local cemetery in Bentonville, Arkansas... it's a man's headstone and carved by the monument company is this phrase, "I told you I was sick". I literally had to walk up to the stone and touch it to believe it was really there.
I first started using find-a-grave to look up famous people's gravestones, such as Bruce and Brandon Lee, those have to be two of my favorites, they are beautiful.
I finally, just in the last couple of weeks started working on adding information on the cemeteries where I have relatives buried. It's a great way to save and share information.
If you would like to either correct or add to a bio, or contribute any information regarding any memorial I have placed, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all information. Or I'll be more than happy to transfer any memorial page to friends or family. Please put "Find A Grave" in the subject field. Thank you!

If you have a minute please visit daddy and mommie's memorial pages. Joe W. Vaughn., Rhoda V. Vaughn.
and for my gramps, he was/is my special human. Will Vaughn.
...and for all of my FAG friends out there, I want to thank you for all the flowers left on my loved ones pages and all the sponsorships.
Only a member of this awesome family here on Find a Grave could know how much all of this is appreciated! :)

Here is a link to a special little guy, if you have a minute, stop by his page and leave a little something for him.

This is a link to some great pics of some of the military elite & medal of honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

This link will take you to the official Arlington Cemetery site.

I also contribute to a site that focuses on just gravestone in Arkansas. There are so many older cemeteries and the stones are fast fading away. If you have pics of any stones from a cemetery in Arkansas feel free to enter the stone and or the cemetery. It's a relatively new site so everyone with Arkansas gravestones is welcome, the more the merrier! Here is the link.

Enjoy! Bev :)

I just added the dog that 'owned' me for a few blessed years, visit my beloved boy if you get a chance, Sandy Myers.


Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

RE: Snow Cemetary, Newton County,AR
Hi Beverly,
have you had a chance to look regarding James
Snow, brother of Jasper. I have applied to the Mayflower Society for membership. Wiley Snow and his ancestors can be traced back to the Mayflower, Stephen Hopkins and his daughter Constance who married Nicholas Snow. You may already know this.
Would love to hear from you.
thanks, Regina

Contact on FAG
Hi Beverly, I sent an e-mail about 6 months ago to the 6 people listed as "Who is behind Find A Grave" and never heard from one of them. I re-sent the same e-mail about 4 weeks ago, and again didn't hear from anyone. If they would just take the time and look at Brenda Troyke's profile page, what she has contributed to Find A Grave and then look at her own daughter's Find A Grave site to see that she does not even visit her,(May 19 was her last visit to her own daughter) perhaps they would see that she was only on here to create a problem. She created her problem as she planned and then she left. Here is her contribution to Find A Grave for 3 years

Perhaps one day they will turn the flowering back on.

Joe and Rhoda
Since I am unable to leave flowers for my parents, I have kind of adopted a few on Find A Grave, 2 being Joe and Rhoda. Your writing is so detailed for each of them it is like stepping back in time with them. Thanks again for sharing them with all of us. Perhaps one day I can convince Find A Grave to turn back on the flowering Momma and Daddy since the person that created the problem (My sister)is never on here anymore since she accomplished what she wanted.

I was wondering if you could tell me what is inscribed on my gr gr grandmother's stone. Seems like there is a drawing on it as well? Also, what is on the other side?

I am trying to prove that Asa Holt was her father. No chance it says anything about that??

TU in advance!!

WW II Code Talkers
I live in the 4 Corners of New Mexico. While my granddaughter was attending classes at a junior college here, the instructors incorporated a book on Code Talkers every semester. If you would like a list if the "original" 27 Code Talkers, I suggest you acquire a copy of Chester Nez's book "Code Talker" for in the back is a list of each and every ORIGINAL code talker and the code they created.
One of our highlights was meeting Mr. Nez at the college in 2013. She now has a personally signed autographed copy and a picture with him. Unfortunately, Mr. Nez passed away this year.
Most of the Code Talkers are buried in the surrounding area here, since we are adjacent to the Din`e(Navajo)Reservation.
I hope this helps you in your quest.
