Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is a passion of mine from when I was very young. My grandmother told me wonderful stories about our families and I have been doing family history for over 30 years. I have traveled all over the world photographing family graves and writing books on my different families. I need another 25 years to finish everything I have started!

Karen M. Freeman

Good Morning Karen,

I finally have the Montlawn Cemetery gravesite location of:

Memorial # 11502843
Section 9, Lot 64, Unit A, Space 2
Sharone at Montlawn confirmed she does have a marker.

Jennie is buried next to her first husband, JESSIE MARVIN SHARPE, space 1. (There is no 'E' on his marker...but the correct spelling of his last name includes the 'E').

A photo exists of his marker on his Find A Grave Memorial page # 47834729, so it is not necessary to photograph it.

If you will photograph and post a photo (on Find A Grave) of Jennie's marker the next time you go to Montlawn, I will be most grateful.

Thank you,
Karen M. Freeman

Florrie L. Allen
Hi Karen,
Thank you for accepting my Edit for William Gaston Allen (1851-1910). I noticed that you have Florrie L. Allen (Memorial #84245114) linked to the above William Gaston Allen. Actually this is probably her grandfather, but certainly not her father. Her parents likely are:

William Gaston Allen, Jr.
Memorial #10750023

Florence L. Allen
Memorial #63160541

I have just done a new link on Florrie's page, but One caution here. There is another sibling (William G. Allen III Memorial #85822981) with a birth year of 1880 too. I just checked Ancestry,
(NC Deaths 1909-1975) so William's birth year of Jan. 6, 1880 is correct. Unfortunately Florrie died too early for a NC death certificate. Maybe it would be best just to leave Florrie unlinked until a tombstone picture is done.

John Foster and Harriett Smith Bryant
Thank you so much for putting my grandparents' graves on the website. Would you allow me to manage their sites? I have some photos and links to John's parents who are buried in New Jersey. Both of them were only children and my father is their only living child.

My Find A Grave no. is 48442806
John Foster Bryant #123708486
Harriett Smith Bryant #123708823

Thank you for your consideration,
Ellen Bryant McCoy

Hope you got it slogging through an old, overgrown cemetery taking photos -- like I died...

RE: Spence Family
Thank you so much for doing that. I want to also thank you for your work at the Bethesda Baptist Church Cemetery work. I would have never found my 2nd great-grand parents had it not been for your work. Thanks again! John Hartsfield
