Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived all of my life in Reno, Nevada, but most of my ancestors hail from Utah. My family tree includes the following surnames: Beckstead, Butterfield, Channing, Childs, Cowdell, Dody, Haddenham, Jacobsen, Jenkins, Johnson, Reed and Thompson.

I got into Find A Grave after my grandma passed away. There was some animosity within my family, and as a result, Nan never had an obituary in the paper and she was never interred with Grandpa like she wanted. I felt like everyone was trying to forget my Nanny. A couple years after her passing I made her a memorial on Find A Grave so I could have somewhere to go to remember her, and let everyone know what a great person she was. After I made her memorial I made one for my grandpa, and my great-grandparents, and eventually I started taking pictures at local cemeteries and making memorials for people I didn't even know. I enjoy the research aspect, but most importantly I don't want anyone to be forgotten, just like I made sure Nan wasn't.

I will transfer to anyone and everyone, unless the memorial in question is one of my relatives (which is unlikely, as I'm not related to 99% of the memorials I make). Whether it's out of guidelines or in bulk; if you can make the memorial(s) better, you are welcome to manage. Also feel free to use my photos, there is no need to ask permission or credit me.

If you're not a member of Find A Grave but would like me to make corrections to a memorial, feel free to send me an email! Make sure to include either a link to the memorial(s) you want corrected, or the memorial number.

Please, don't transfer a memorial to me unless I specifically ask to manage it. Much like the memorials I create, I am not related to 99% of the ones I send edits for, and I would much prefer they go to someone who has a connection to the person.


If you'd like to leave a flower for my grandma, I'd surely appreciate it :-). I look at each and every token and they mean a lot to me.

My great-uncle Roger passed away on January 11, his 95th birthday. It would be great if you'd leave a flower for him, too!

This is my uncle Jack and I would like to request that you transfer him to me at #47944588. I have some information I'd like to add.
Thank you

Would you please move your picture on the duplicate memorial 135905897 to the original 93358904 for Daniel Patrick Murphy. I have requested the dupe be removed.
Thanks, Eileen

Hi Alexandra, I don't think I'd know anyone else. We're all from Nebraska as was he. I can't imagine who would have buried him out there in such a nice grave. Altho I didn't know that side of his family. Must have been someone tho. :) I do want to thank you for letting me have care of it. I've already got lots of information to put on his memorial. I hope you'll take a look when I get it done. He was one of my most favorite people.
Thanks Alexandra!
Best regards,

Hello Alexandra!
I'm curious if you're related to Edward? I'm positive he's my Uncle Ed. I've been looking for him for awhile now & thanks to a dear friend, he found him. If you aren't I'll gladly take his memorial off your hands if you don't mind. I read your note. I too transfer memorials fairly freely. I'm not a numbers counter. If you don't feel comfortable tranferring, I can just put him in my families virtual cemetery. Just let me know. My Find A Grave# is 46523555. Thanks in advance & enjoy your evening.
Best regards,

RE: White Tanks memorials
Thank you for taking the pictures. Some of us have found the the date on the gravemarker does not match the DOD on the list I get from the county. Let me know if you find problems. We are trying to address this issue.
