Bio and Links
Bio Photo <-- My sons, Sean and Eric, and myself, several years ago.

The older you get, the more deaths it seems, or maybe I was just too young to know the difference. I wanted something to memorialize members of my family and friends.

The majority of the memorials I made are family and some are very close family friends.

For all those that took my family pictures and used them on Ancestry, you weren't supposed to copy them unless you ask me first, and it would have been nice for anyone of you to say "Hey, I used your picture on my family tree!" I would have replied with something like "Lets see how we are related!"

Discovering who your ancestors are is one thing, but reading about them even if its just an obituary tells you something about them as a person, not just another leaf in the tree. Seeing their final resting place is a type of closure for me.

I'm looking for any information on Scovill, Hill, Gear, Parlett, Lawton, Shields, Weilbacher, Frierdich, Murrah.

Please don't add any music to my interments. If you have a picture for one of my memorials you'd like to add, go ahead, but please let me know so I can see it! Thanks!

If I've left flowers on a memorial, that doesnt mean that I know them. It could be that I was flowering random names, or I got there by following links from other memorials. I've flowered over 20,000 memorials, and I probably only knew a very small percentage of those people.


This was posted in the forums, and I think it pretty much sums up how most of us feel about graving and looking for our ancestors.

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spread out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Thomas Parry photo again
Hi--me again!
Sherry, under the photo of the cemetery sign, is the message that the photo was added by Sherry in 2004. When I click on Sherry, it goes to your page. If you did not add this photo, I'll ask the editors to remove it, but I thought I'd run it by you one more time in case you were looking at a different photo. (Several people added photos to this memorial.)
Thanks again!

Death certificates
Hi Sherry,
Just fyi, from the FAQ:
"May I add a death certificate to a person's memorial page?
Death certificates may be added via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. Please select the option for "Other" in the "Type of photo:" to be added, as it is not a Grave, Person or Family photograph."
Thanks for your message about the photo.

photo removal request
Hi Sherry!
Would you be willing to remove the general cemetery name photo from the grave of Thomas Parry at this "address"?
I'd like to squeeze on a family photo.
Thank you!

RE: Sydney and Willis Tackett
If you will email me at I will share some pictures with you. My grandmother was Sydney Ellen Tackett-Harris, daughter of Willis & Sydna (or Sydney?)Harrison-Tackett. I have a picture of my grandmother Sydney Ellen & her sisters and if you could identify any of them I would be happy!! I know which one is my grandmother, but no idea who the other women are. I might be able to help you with info on your GGG grandmother as well.
I'll give you more info if you can email me.

So glad to find new cousin!!
