Hello, My name is John and my family lines are Lawler, Whitehead, Singletary & Tatum. My family and I our currently working on Myrtle Hill and Garden of Memories in Tampa, Florida. We are walking the entire two cemeteries looking to fulfill all the requests without the help of the office. It seems to be going well and alot faster than waiting on a phone call back with plot locations. If you have requests for these two cemeteries be patient someone is looking for them.

Update: On Sept.3rd 2012 I suffered a stroke and have been sidelined. It has been a year of hard work and determination, but I have regained over 95% of my right side back. Still working on the 40 years of strength and that will come with more time. I will be working on all the back log of suggestions, transfers and requests made. Sorry for the delays, John
Must be way distant kin!! I looked at all of your Whitehead memorials, but I do not think that I am related except possibly way distant. My family hails from North Georgia via Virginia. Perhaps if we went back to England??
RE: Mary Mariah Jones Lawler Reynolds I completely understand. I do hope my message did not come across as rude, because I certainly didn't mean for it to. You may want to include that death index information in the bio area as well, may help someone in future research.
Mary Mariah Jones Lawler Reynolds I wasn't sure how else to contact you since you declined the edit. I do realize that she was married twice, but per findagrave rules, her memorial should only contain 1 name in the last name field. There is a very good reason for them having this rule. I know it looks like it's helping, by including all her last names, but it actually prevents anyone from finding her. If you do a search on findagrave, it will not locate her if you search for Mary Mariah Lawler, or Mary Mariah Reynolds. You have to actually search with the last name Lawler Reynolds for it to find her, and people aren't going to search that way, because you are only supposed to include one last name. Please remove the Reynolds last name from that field. She was buried under the name Lawler, so it should be her last name on her memorial. Also, if you will put her entire full name in the bio section, then it will show up as a result if someone does a google search using all those names.
Cemetery Photos I have been a member of the Find-a-Grave website for about one year. I have been frustrated by the lack of plot maps available for the smaller cemeteries in Hillsborough County, Florida. I am thinking about creating a website that would contain this information and headstone pictures. It sounds like you have already done a lot of this yourself. Are you planning to put your pictures online? If not, would you be willing to share them with me so I don't have to re-invent the wheel? This would not be part of any commercial venture, I would share the site with you prior to public posting, and I would give you credit for the information you provide. Hoping to hear from you. Many thanks for your consideration,.
RE: Lawler's of Shiloh Cemetery I will add and link any information to the memorials I maintain. Just use the edit tab on each memorial to give me the details. The new photos for Leonard and Frances Lamberson were great....so sad the top is now broken from the base.
