Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love to go to cemeteries and walk among the headstones and wonder about the ones who lie beneath the sod. I am currently photographing cemetery headstones and putting them online. I like to travel when time and money permits. I like "digging" up info to fill in a blank space of an ancestor whether mine or someone else's. .

My daughter Lorelei helps too. I couldn't do what I do without the help of my family members. They are priceless.

Would love for you to visit and leave flowers at my virtual cemeteries..especially the one for Mervil Lee Short in Restland Memorial Park Cemetery in Bishop, Nueces Co., Tx A Marine Veteran who served in the Vietnam War

My research of my family includes Swearingen, Westfall,Short, Brinkley, Crawford, Lynch, Ross, Andress, Brown, Glasco, Defore/Defoor, Donaho, Isaacs/Isaacks and many others.

I also try to research on my granddaughter's side of her father's family. Locklear, Cochran, Richardson, Williams, Horton, Weems and Wolfe

You are welcome to copy any headstone photos I have placed on any memorial. I do not believe in a "copyright" on headstone photos as they are accessible to the public in most any cemetery. I would appreciate being notified you have done so.

Wanda, if you decide to remove your memorial, I will be most happy to transfer the original one to you. Find A Grave will let me do transfers, just not deletions. The man who created the original one is now deceased. I just volunteered to help maintain some of his.

Wanda, this is a duplicate memorial. Yours was created after memorial #10130347. One needs to be removed. You will notice the new siblings feature of Find A Grave does not handle duplicates correctly. You memorial is much more complete, than the one I maintain, however, Find A Grave does not let the maintainer remove memorials, only make changes to them. If you still have the grave stone photo, would you consider adding it to the original memorial and then removing yours? I will be happy to add anything you would like added.

Thank you for such a quick response. I know one of her siblings is also linked with her parents. I'm going to try to research the others. Jane

I've been doing some genealogy on my Baird side of the family. Forest's parents were Safronia Isabel Baird and Benjamin Franklin Baird. Please see Find A Grave Memorial# 15213485. Safronia's death certificate info was given by Mrs. O.R. Williams. Do you remember why you put her maiden name as Bond? I believe it should be Baird.
