Bio and Links
Bio Photo NOTE: As of March 2014, I'm having serious computer problems AND I'm out of town helping out sick family members. I'm getting behind on Find A Grave work, but will (the good Lord willing and the creek don't rise) catch up. Patience, please.

[PLEASE read (starting with para. 2) before contacting me about a memorial; it will save us both time and trouble. Thanks!]

I'm a history major and a lawyer (University of Virginia, Emory University;) a fanatic about live music (Todd Rundgren, Gene Owens, the blues;) and a photographer. I'm a wife and a mother (a son in law school at the University of Georgia and a daughter who recently graduated from Tulane.) I have a house full of rescued dogs and cats.

If I'm the caretaker of a memorial for someone who was closer to you than to me, I'll consider transferring that memorial to you; feel free to ask, but please include DETAILS as to your relationship to the deceased.

If you have additional information or links that you want added to a memorial, please send details and DO include links to your SOURCES: I'm unlikely to make additions/links if I can't verify their accuracy

All requests for transfers, all suggestions, and all corrections MUST be sent via the edit tab on the memorial in question. If you use the "Other" option you'll be able to send an explanation of, and links to, your sources for suggested changes to a memorial.

If you need to write me at my email address about something else (e.g., a suggestion or correction I've sent you,) PLEASE include a copy of any relevant correspondence and a link to the memorial(s) in question.

If I've posted a cemetery photograph that you want to use on Ancestry, please feel free to do so IF and ONLY IF you include the entire caption as the photograph description. You MUST get my express permission to use any of my photographs OTHER than those taken in cemeteries.

Love to help you out. If you sent the name of the individual that I'm looking for I will take a set of new pictures and sent them to you. Dave

RE: Photograph of Jim Ludberg's Grave
He's my Grandfather so I guess I helped us both.

Addie Overby Young
Thank-you for making the memorial for Addie Overby Young. Thank-you for taking care of her. I hope you are a family member so she will be cherished and loved, for without her assistance, my grandfather would have made it during his time of need. Wishing you happiness uninterrupted. If, at a later time, you are unable to care for her, please let her family do so. Gratitude.

A. N. Robinson
Thank you for adding the information I gave you regarding A. N. Robinson. I do believe this is almost certainly Adam Robinson, but I respect and understand your need for more concrete evidence. Unfortunately, it isn't so easy to find more than circumstantial evidence for many of these older burials. Anyhow, thank you again!

Baby McGinnis
I was more than happy to do it. I'm wish I knew why the grave is off by itself and not in the McGinnis plot but I'm just happy it is still there, despite having some damage to the base.

Thank you so much for posting those photos! I was at my wit's end for any information about those people and you saved my day!

I have saved the photos to my page WITH the paragraph you require and I am so grateful to be able to use them.

It sounds like you have a more than busy life and I share my home with two rescue kitties.

Thanks again for a job well done!
