Bio and Links
Bio Photo Started genealogy when assisting my son with a Boy Scout Merit Badge about 15 years ago. Cried when I found my grandparents and Uncle Bobby's headstones on here. (Bobby died when he was three.) Michelle

Please feel free to use pictures and information that I post for your personal and private genealogical purposes only (other than Ancestry)and please give credit. HOWEVER, PLEASE DON'T RE-UPLOAD MY FAMILY PICTURES AND RESEARCH TO ANCESTRY. ANY PICTURE THAT I HAVE UPLOADED TO FIND A GRAVE of my family, I HAVE ALSO UPLOADED TO ANCESTRY. JUST FIND IT ON ANCESTRY AND ATTACH IT TO YOUR TREE WITH THE ORIGINAL DATE AND SUBMITTER. When I fulfill photo requests, I try to get everyone in the same plot and provide extra information to the family. It helps me and I hope that it helps others. Right now, I'm working on Oak Grove in Americus, Sumter County, Georgia and hope to branch out to other area cemeteries in the future.

Also, I am happy to transfer relatives to family members who will care for them even if you are not close relatives. Obviously, the closer relative asking has the right to care for a memorial before a distant relative but the important thing is for a memorial to be taken care of, added to and for it to reflect the life that it memorializes. Please use the edit tab to request changes or transfers. I don't generally transfer my own relatives unless you are within guidelines and I am not or there is a really good reason.

Thank you for sending obituaries but I do not usually add them unless I wrote them or have permission from the author, funeral home or newspaper that they appeared in. If an obituary meets those criteria, the names of living people will be removed. All of this is per Find A Grave guidelines.

Her family is Gatian, Boggs, Henry, Love and Jarvis(Morgantown WV area) and Rehanek, Cowell, Roberts and Hudec(sw PA area) and Woods, Barber, White, Colegrove, Davisson and Stevens lines(NE Kentucky) and surrounding lines. His family is Andrews/Anders, Taylor, Hart, Tooke, McKinnis (GA) and Yon, Broom, Parrish, Pate (FL).

Please take moment to visit Michelle's precious parents,
Margaret Patricia Rehanek "Peggy" Gatian and
Roy "Jake" Gatian, Jr
and Ben's wonderful father and step-father
Ben Andrews, Sr and
Bill Wages

and leave a tribute, thought or prayer. We miss them everyday.

RE: Kimberly Sparks
Oops - sorry about that. I uploaded from my phone and did not see that it was turned. I have corrected the orientation.

Lewis Winn
I've taken the picture of Lewis Winn's headstone. There wasn't an inscription on the other side of his for his wife, if you send me her name I can try to see if she is somewhere else.

Thank you,

HI Michelle!

I guess we are related! Working on my Family Tree Lead me to Samuel & Bettie! Lillian Andrews-Edward-Barnes-Pittman-would be my great grandmother (Edna Edward-Smith-Davis was one of her daughters)! Do you have any information the Cook side of the tree? I have run into a dead end!

Thank you!

Thelma Callaghan
I am related through Gala and the Rich's on my mothers Kerr side. I have put Thelma's parents memorials on the site and really want to add Thelma's (which I sent to you long ago.) She was such a special person to us and also her parents. I do not want her to be forgotten and would like to list the giving person that she was as described in her obit.

I have no idea if this is the same as Gene Beckley and do not have access to his obituary.

There wasn't a peep of sun in the sky today so I took better Rehanek photos for you without all that reflection.
