Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogy geek too! No surprise there! I love helping others and never mind transferring management of an acct or editing info. If I own an acct or even manage one don't be afraid to ask if you want it. Sometimes I suggest a date addition or something after taking the photo and people will transfer management of the acct to me to edit even though I am of no relation, so I am always happy to send to a family member to manage.

***I have recently taken management of a few inactive acct creators accts in order to make edits and links as I photo survey entire cemeteries. I am happy to edit info or transfer to family members. I have not accepted all their accts just select cemeteries as I photo them.

Feel free to visit my dad's page & leave a flower Find A Grave 43914016

***sometimes when I post a picture from my I-pad while there at the cemetery, it posts sideways but will appear upright for me. Please let me know if I miss this so I can repost the picture. Thanks.

thanks for the awesome photos for these brothers. you might want to add the photo to both of them. Also, I think that Benjamin's middle initial is F. I suspect it stands for Franklin but I'm not sure...

That's o.k. I decided to add photo's to some of My old ones that had no photo's. I used to think if the photo was not perfect I could not add, but I have learned that if I do not add one , then someone will add one that is worse. Thank's so much for the quick edits.

RE: Scott Family memebers
Hi Maria,
Glad to do it but rather disappointed in another member who "Jumped my Claim" on several of your requests. I'm glad you got your photos but there was some duplicated effort which wasn't necessary.
I have information and photos for some others of your requests that I have claimed, mostly unmarked but I will post what I have in the next few days. I don't foresee having any requests in your area but thanks for the offer. Will be glad to help if you need anything else here.

Waltons NC
When it comes to the remaining Walton photo requests I was able to find a family plot stone covered completely by bushes & other vegetation. I can just make out the last name & even if I had gone through all the branches & stuff, there would still have been some digging to make out the stones in the ground.

I don't know if you would be able to manage to get this done if you're a relative or know someone from the church. I didn't want to disturb the area much since it would have involved a lot of work.

I did manage to find Zacariah N Walton whose grave was completely buried & only manage to found it last minute when I found his foot stone/marker as you can see by the pictures.

Please keep me updated on any progress on the rest of the stones. Zacariah's stone was adjacent to the Walton headstone that was covered by vegetation.

Thank you for Lucy's transfer. I have been able to add her children in her bio that cannot be linked at the present time. You have made my day. In appreciation, PM

Thanks so much for taking the picture of Mr. Gay's gravestone. This is the fastest I've ever gotten a request taken care of! Mr. Gay was seriously wounded in action on 24 May 1944 during the breakout from Anzio during the push to Rome. Thanks again! James
