Hello, all. Thank you for stopping by my profile page. My name is Katie. I have been interested in cemeteries and genealogy for many years. Growing up I thoroughly enjoyed visiting cemeteries and hearing stories of my ancestors from my grandparents. I spent many summer days with my grandparents and learned many valuable things from them, and it was their influence that sparked my intense love for history.

I enjoy being a small part of the Find A Grave community and memorializing those who have reposed. It is my belief that those who have passed away are not dead. Yet, because Christ has trampled down death by death, we have the hope of eternal life and the opportunity to be more alive upon our "death" than we are right now. For this reason, it is very important to me to remember those who have gone before.

I hope my listings on Find A Grave have helped others find and remember their loved ones. That is my desire. If you would like to make a correction or want control of your loved one's memorial that I have made, please just let me know and I'll do as you request.

If you have a moment, I would love for you to visit my beloved grandparents' memorials. I have made a virtual cemetery for them on the right of this page.

Thank you again for stopping by.

Katie

Mouser headstone photos
Thanks so much for all the great headstone photos of the Mouser family members that you took at the Sardis cemetery in Stamps, Arkansas. It is so great to have the headstone photos with the memorials as they help to make the memorial more complete.

Katie,
Would you mind putting the mother of Jordon in the family relationship area. Her name is Nancy Catherine Pope Wattis and her number is 84548364.
His father is John Allen Wattis and stepdad is Mitchell Rice Black. I know all this as he is my great great uncle.
Thank you Leigh Anne

McBroom, Jewel R. 38059255 b. Oct. 10, 1891 d. Aug. 16, 1948
Dear Katie, I appreciate all the work you've done regarding my family. (Also Iris Meshell and Henry Osborne, et al.)

I know my grandfather, Furman West, had a sister Jewel. I've got an idea that
McBroom, Jewel R. 38059255 b. Oct. 10, 1891 d. Aug. 16, 1948
is that sister. The insert that Iris included for Jewell West has a birth year that is suspicious to me: 1893, which is the same year as Stanley B. West. The 1891 date seems more likely with the spacing of the children. I don't believe there were twins. Do you have a way of verifying or reconciling? Thank you. Alicia Myers

It is marvelous all the neat things I'm finding at Find A Grave: people have been working so diligently to add information that I've had no access to. THANK YOU. Alicia

Thank you for making the updates. I know there are many people trying to reconstruct the Columbia County cemeteries after so many of the memorials were maliciously deleted severing multiple family links.
