|Bio and Links|
I am a Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother. I volunteer three afternoon a week at the Family Research Center. We collect, glassware, vintage jewelry, Cowboy Collectables, and dust. We love Flea Markets, Country Auctions, and long highway yard sales.|
I started Find a Grave as a Photo Volunteer and decided that was too hard. I started photographing the entire cemetery, this way I could add them to the Computer at the Center and put them on Find a Grave also.
I walk the Cemeteries and take the photographs of the memorials I put on Find a Grave. I do not set at the computer and put memorials on in another state that I have no intention of putting a photograph on with it. I do not do this for the numbers, I do it to help others.
I believe family should be with family. I make mistakes, I am human, just be nice when you let me know. It is not my intention to make duplicates, but names, initials, nicknames are not all known, and I gave up mind reading a few years ago. I try to correct, link or transfer as fast as I can. I do not believe it takes two months to type a few numbers.
I look at the old monuments that have weathered many storms and mowers and wish they could tell of what lies beneath them. I feel that by photographing them now could be the last means of preserving them for our generation. Find a Grave is a wonderful site for sharing the photographs of family and discovering death and birth dates that might have been lost.
It is wonderful to meet and make friends with people I would otherwise never know. I love being able to help others in any way I can.
I believe in God, Family and Country. If this offends you, I am sorry. This is a short bio of me.
God Bless you and
God Bless the United States of America

Thank you Anita for this photo of Louisa and ALL of the photos you have taken! You have been a great help to our family with all of your work! Thank you!
|Carolyn Nabours||RE: Dovie Mauzy|
Yes, I would love that if you would please transfer that one. I think this is the greatest site. So many are in such poor shape. Some day no one will be able to read them, unless they are on here. Thank you so much.

I just found this on findagrave of my great aunt Dovie. She was my grandmother's sister. I had no idea where she was buried, and when I went on a search, I also found her son there that just passed away on the second of this month. Thank you for adding this picture. I too have been adding memorials and pictures for local cemeteries in Ohio county and Muhlenberg county. Carolyn Nabours

Had I not made mine in error when she was still alive I wouldn't have removed it for sure! I made all those when I was down there on vacation and photographed the entire cemetery. I did express my displeasure at the duplicate and have not removed it yet so he knows what I am referring to.
|Audra Carpenter Ploegstra||Janice S Warner|
After looking into this situation I decided to delete the page I made for her only because mine was made before she died. I did ask the person to check before he made another memorial as to not duplicate any more. Had mine been made after she died I would have asked him to remove his. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
|Donna Hoover Riston & Lois Smith Jones||Thank you|
Found some of the tombstones pictures you put with my family and am certainly thankful for your hard work. You are a blessing to many people in McLean Co., Ky. May God bless you and your family
