I have been conducting family research for over 7 years now but didn't realize I could take photos for this site until I signed up to thank someone for uploading a photo of my father's headstone. Since then I've tried to help out as much as possible by taking photographs in my area. Others may say this is not a site for genealogists but I disagree. A wealth of information can be found on a headstone. |
I don't consider any of the memorial pages I've created as "mine" unless they contain my family so feel free to ask for transfers if you find my name on your family member. Please don't hesitate to request my original photographs either since what you see is re-sized for this website. I enjoy getting out and taking photographs. It is my way of giving back to my community and to fellow genealogists who find this site as valuable as I do.
When I find a headstone that isn't on FAG I create the page with the name exactly as it appears on the stone. I've discovered to my dismay that the information carved onto headstones is not always correct. That said, if you find an error please let me know so I can fix it. Most of the memorials I manage are not my family but that doesn't mean I don't want them to be accurate so their families can find them. :)

Thank you so much for finding her stone! Guess person who looked before didn't think to look for her under first married name. It is greatly appreciated that you added photo of her stone.

Thanks so much for filling my request of photos for my family members, after doing so much research to find everyone once you see even something as simple as a headstone it brings you even closer to that person... it's just one more solid fact that helps verify my roots...
|Robert Frey||Joseph Frey|
Cindi, thank you for taking the picture of the grave of Joseph Frey at Rosehill. I am trying to ascertain if this is my great grandfather. My ancestors lived and died in Batesville, Independence County, AR. My great grandfather Joseph disappears after the 1880 census. Is there any other information available about the grave at Rosehill? Do you know who owned the plot he was buried in? Thanks again for your assistance to all who are trying to find ancestors from afar.
Hi Cindi -
When I saw your name, I figured you were related to Frank Weeks. I know that his daughter, Emma, and her husband, Eugene, had a lot of children. Frank, your great great grandfather, was also my husband's great great grandfather. My husband's family comes down through Fred C. Weeks. My father-in-law recently passed away and I am going through all the photo albums and memorabilia that were in drawers and trunks and I ran across a copy of Frank's obituary. It was a neat find. I'm glad that you were blessed by it. It is so cool to have a bit of detective work verified in doing genealogy research. Do you have an obituary for Emma or Eugene or any photos of them?
Have a beautiful day, Cindi -

Just wanted to thank you for posting photo of my Great Great Grandfather's tombstone--which I have visited once, many years ago with my grandmother (Sally Evelyn Dunham- Dumis) who was born in Washington Ark. In case you didn't know Isaac was a triplet, all three boys born alive in March of 1834 in Cumberland KY and moved with their family to Hempstead county. One of the triplet brothers died at the age of 10 here in Ark. Isaac enlisted in 4th Arkansas Confederate Infantry, Company E, and fought in the entire Civil War (from Battle of Pea Ridge, to Richmond, KY, Jackson MS,Stones River in TN, Chickamauga in GA, Atlanta Campaign, Franklin and Nashville in TN, and finally Battle of Bentonvilled in NC, afterwards beings surrendered in April 1865, then went home to Washington Ark. The remaining twin brother, Charles S. Shields, like Isaac, enlisted in a Confederate infantry regiment--the 24th Ark. Inf. in June of 1862 and died of disease in Dec. 1862 and is buried with other confederate soldiers in a cemetery nearby where his unit was stationed, in Jefferson Co. Ark. Her mother was Carrie Emma Shields (married name Dunham) who was one of Isaac's daughters by his first wife, Emma. I knew Carrie when I was a little boy--she was always called "Big Mama" by my family. I am also related to James Williams (born 1763 and died 1851 and was a Revolutionary War Veteran (Col Sevier's company from S.Carolina and also War of 1812 veteran) who is buried nearby in another cemetery in Washington (Hempstead County) and Emma's grandfather if I remember correctly. Ironically, my maternal grandmother's family (Sally Evelyn Dumis) wound up moving to Texarkana, TX, where my mother and I were both born. I wound up growing up most of my life in Dallas, TX area. But eventually wound up back in Arkansas (Little Rock) where I have lived since 1994.
