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!

:) Hi! I noticed you added a photograph of my great-grandfather's grave (# 117778223). Just wondering if you're a relative at all. I have DNA tests for his family.

Best wishes.
