Bio Photo "To forget one's ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root." - Chinese proverb.

My husband and I go out to the cemeteries together. We are helping to photograph Woodlawn Cemetery in Claremore, OK for now. My husband is related to just about all the Gibbs and Davis buried there.

We enjoy helping to photograph headstones at cemeteries which are under-photographed because we recognize that not all family and friends have the ability to visit their loved one's grave. Having a picture of it is a blessing. This is how we choose to help Find A Grave.

We do not mind anyone using our headstone photos for their own family research, but ask that if you share it to a public site to please credit back to us and not use it as your own photo. Thank you.

I have added names of living persons on my own grandparent's memorials. According to the FAG help page under the question "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?" FAG states: "Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission." The names I have added are used by permission.

For edits on the memorials I manage, please use the edit tab on the memorial in question. Please do not leave a request in a virtual flower as I may not see it.

Thank you, Lyn

RE: Pauline Burkhard
Thank you for the transfer. I really do appreciate all your work, and I also appreciate all the other generous people out there who share their research with the rest of us.

I am very distantly related on the Gramlich side. Her father was a brother to my great great grandfather on my father's side of the family. You may transfer her to me if you want to do so. I appreciate the pictures that you have taken. I don't often get to AR, but I love doing family research.

RE: Alver West
Brad & Lyn: Thanks for taking the photo of Alver West marker. He did not appear to have a wife named Elizabeth so that was my mistake. Thanks for your efforts.

Well thank you for all that you and your husband do in taking these photos. Not only a fun task I am sure but certainly a worthy one.

Chebbie Butler - Cherrie Butler
Hi Lyn! On the memorial you submitted for Chebbie Butler in the Fairmount Cemetery, #135345013, I feel like this might be Cherrie L. Lewis Butler, wife of William Crawford Butler #43033592. From the picture it is kind of hard to tell if the engraver was making r's or b's but her birthdate is 1849 as on the stone. I submitted an name change request but wanted to send you a note about this.

Thank you,
Ginny Mangum

P.S. William Crawford's mother, Flora Ann S. Watts Butler is a sister of my great great grandfather Columbus F.C. Watts.

Hello Lynn,

I am so thankful for wonderful people like you who take time out of busy schedule to photograph graves. It helps individuals like me to be able to see where forgotten family is buried and see their graves. With family migration and family being split up over time it takes everyone to share information. Their is not one single individual who knows everything about a family. Thanks in advance for your help Jonathan Grimm
