Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started working on the family trees, of my husband and myself, about 50 years ago. I was never told that there would be no end to it.

My children gave me my first computer for my birthday, this year. (2010) I am having the time of my life. Find A Grave is the best thing that ever happened to a genealogist. Pushing buttons is much better than reading film until your eyes cross.

Most of the memorials I have added are not my family. I will be more than happy to transfer those to anyone who can add information and/or pictures. You do not have to be related. A good friend is better than nothing.

Please do NOT add death certificates to my memorials. Just ask for a transfer and then when it is your memorial you can add anything you like.

Please send documentation with your edits. I don't change my memorials without documentation. You may prefer to ask for a transfer and that will be fine as long as it isn't my family.

Please, please, please use the edit in the upper right hand corner of the memorial you wish to have edited.

RE: Photo
Lela, you are the only person who has ever objected to Death Certificates. I've had responses that it has added information they didn't have to just appreciating a copy. Usually people are out of Missouri and don't know how to get a copy. I will be happy to remove from your requests.

Forrester Family @ Moffat
Hi Lela,
I'm currently adding headstone photos that I took at Moffat Old cemetery in Scotland and have come across the 4 memorials that you created for the Forrester Family. Firstly, I have added an extra photo - hope you don't mind. And, secondly I was wondering if you have a connection to them and know if Margaret (nee Johnstone) is actually connected to the Johnstone family that are listed on another face of the memorial.

RE: Rosenbalm
In going through old notes and found one from Jacob Rosenbalm's oldest granddaughter. She said he was buried at Barnes Cemetery. His military files have Cambellite so possibly it was referred to that in early years. Thank you.

There is no marker to photograph for the above mentioned at St. Paul. Henry is the only marker. Three purchased graves have no record or markers of anyone else buried there in his plot.

James Parris death
Hi Lela, the edit request didn't allow me to add a reason for my edit for James death. In the book "Broken Fortunes" by Randolph Kirkland Jr. Pg 272 is James Parris Of Spartanburg, Private in the Palmetto Sharp shooters being killed in action at Frayzer's farm in Richmond VA on June 30, 1862. The CDC, Jr. and HOS was used in the compilation of this information. He is the only James Parris in all of SC to have died during the civil war. Additionally, James was a mentioned in the church records at Arrowood Baptist Church in Spartanburg. I'm not sure if he was a member of Arrowood or Buck Creek.

Van Horn
Hi, I noticed you sent an addition to John M. Van Horn but you added his grandparents as his parents. According to his WWII draft card his father was George LeRoy Van Horn and Mother, Lela Van Horn. You will need to send the parental links to the Geoge LeRoy Van Horn memorial , # 12718935.
Kind regards, LBruns
