Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ever since I was a small kid, I've always been interested in my ancestors. I'm sure I drove the older members of my family nuts by always asking who was married to whom and who their kids were.
As an adult I've traced my lineage back four to seven generations and still enjoy working on filling in the blanks.
I also love to roam around in cemeteries and look for odd and different headstones. I have a scrapbook of photos of these stones that I started years ago and still add to it every chance I get.
My favorite is a stone that I found in a local cemetery in Bentonville, Arkansas... it's a man's headstone and carved by the monument company is this phrase, "I told you I was sick". I literally had to walk up to the stone and touch it to believe it was really there.
I first started using find-a-grave to look up famous people's gravestones, such as Bruce and Brandon Lee, those have to be two of my favorites, they are beautiful.
I finally, just in the last couple of weeks started working on adding information on the cemeteries where I have relatives buried. It's a great way to save and share information.
If you would like to either correct or add to a bio, or contribute any information regarding any memorial I have placed, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all information. Or I'll be more than happy to transfer any memorial page to friends or family. Please put "Find A Grave" in the subject field. Thank you!

If you have a minute please visit daddy and mommie's memorial pages. Joe W. Vaughn., Rhoda V. Vaughn.
and for my gramps, he was/is my special human. Will Vaughn.
...and for all of my FAG friends out there, I want to thank you for all the flowers left on my loved ones pages and all the sponsorships.
Only a member of this awesome family here on Find a Grave could know how much all of this is appreciated! :)

This is a link to some great pics of some of the military elite & medal of honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

This link will take you to the official Arlington Cemetery site.

I also contribute to a site that focuses on just gravestone in Arkansas. There are so many older cemeteries and the stones are fast fading away. If you have pics of any stones from a cemetery in Arkansas feel free to enter the stone and or the cemetery. It's a relatively new site so everyone with Arkansas gravestones is welcome, the more the merrier! Here is the link.

Enjoy! Bev :)

I just added the dog that 'owned' me for a few blessed years, visit my beloved boy if you get a chance, Sandy Myers.


Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

I am helping a coworker put his history together and he directed me to the Frank James story. Being a genealogist, I know you must have tried to prove this one way or another. Can I ask how it went. Thanks for putting the things out there. It is wonderful for those of us who have never seen or in some cases found, the elusive family graves.

Thank you for posting the photo of Noah William Davenports single solitary grave. I had heard about it, but have never seen it. One of my great grandmothers was Rose E. Davenport Gossett. Noah was her grandfather that died when she was only three or so. Thanks again, Laura Collins Gomez aka grave detective.

William Burrell Horsley, Sr
Hello and good morning, I was wondering if you are a family member of William Burrell Horsley, Sr, or if you have any information on this family. I'm trying to see if this would be my 4th great grandfather!

Nancy Jane Moody Owens
Beverly, Its me again...this time with a problem with the photograph you posted to the Jane Moody Owen memorial (@ 17680603). Let me first appologize for the incorrect identificaton of the subjects in this photo. I recognize this as my work, done about 15 years ago and passed around to other Owen cousins who were researching this family. Arron Owen(s) was the younger brother of my gg-grandfather, Richard Owen (1804-1865). Someone sent me this photo identifying the subjects as Aaron and Nancy Jane Moody Owen. I did a Photoshop annotation of these names on the picture and passed it on to others. Then learned that this photo was not Aaron and Jane at all but was their daughter Harriett Owen (1862-1945) and her husband Amos Ferguson "Bud" Curtis, Jr (1860-1939). I noticed that you have posted a picture of Amos and Harriett on his Find A Grave memorial which was taken when they were much younger. If you compare all of the facial features of Harriett between these two pictures, there is no doubt this is the same person. Since I was the cause of the mis-identification of this photograph, you can do me a great favor if you would remove this photo from the Jane Moody Owen memorial. Many Thanks. William Gorman

Barnett "Barney" W. Cheatham
Hi! Thanks for posting a photo to the memorial of Barnett "Barney" W. Cheatham.

I was wondering, however, who the photo is of--Barnett Sr. (1804-1858) or Barnett Jr. (1848-1929)? If it is of Barnett Sr., then it would have had to be taken prior to the Civil War before he died in 1858, and from the photo I can not tell what period the clothing is of?

Also, who is the lady in the photo? Would love to know more about it.

Joseph Richard Stephens
Beverly, Thank you for posting the photograph of Joseph Richard and Minerva Elizabeth Beckhan Stephens to his Findagrave memorial. I have never seen a photo of either before and appreciate this very much. He was my g-granduncle, the brother of my g-grandmother Arletha Stephens Owen. His other siblings were Mary Amanda Stephens Alexander, John Wiley Stephens, Francis Calaway Stephens, and Bird Alexander Stephens. They all were living in Bear Creek Twp, Boone County until the fall of 1885 when all but Joseph Richard moved their families to Texas. I am curious how you came about this photo and if you are related to this couple.

Uncle Joe Richardson
Dear Beverly Joe,

Thank you so much for the photo of Uncle Joe Richardson. My grandmother, Anna Lee Dobbs Harris, some 25 years ago told me a story of what happened to her when her mother, Phoebe Snow Dobbs, died in 1928. My grandmother, then 10 years old, went to live with her grandmother's family, the Richardsons, and Uncle Joe Richardson, who never married (she told me that bit because I was still unmarried in my 20's--finally married when I was 50!), helped to raise her. She also said that Uncle Joe was a large man with a beard, much like me, and I've often wondered what exactly he looked like. And now I know, thanks to you, cousin!

Warmest regards,

James Harris
