Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't live near any of my own relatives and very much appreciate the work that folks from those areas have done. I concentrate on the cemeteries near my home, adding information about spouses, maiden names, and parents whenever I find sources that appear to be valid. I'm sure there are times that I'm led astray by what looks valid, so please send an edit or contact me if you see something that doesn't look right!

I'm glad to transfer records if you're a direct relative of someone whose memorial I created. Please see the FAG guidelines under "How do I get a Relative's Memorial Transferred to Me" on the "Help with Find A Grave" page.

Feel free to use the headstone photos that I've taken in any way that is respectful.

My profile picture is of Kari, one of my second great-grandmothers.

George Smelser
WJW ~ I walked the Saint Lukes Lutheran Church Cemetery yesterday for about 45 minutes. Unfortunately I did not find George Smelser. I did find a section with several Smelser's that died around the same time but not George. That older section of the Cemetery has more than 100 very old gravestones that are no longer readable. Being that George died in 1857 his gravestone could be one of the unreadable ones. ~ Ed

Find A Grave Memorial# 97173377
This Stella Thomasson is not the daughter of John E. and Lydia Murphy Thomasson. Their daughter was Stella Thomasson Nation, 1881-1926, the wife of Samuel Clements Nation, whom she married 1904 in McLean County, KY. Could you please remove this and attach those parents to Stella Thomasson Nation-- Find A Grave Memorial # 96285792 ? Thank you.
