Bio and Links
Bio Photo Being a Find A Grave photo contributor is the most rewarding & constructive hobby I've ever taken up.. You have my consent to use any of the headstone or plot photos that I've loaded to memorials.. If I've created a memorial for a family member or friend of yours, I'm more than willing to transfer them to you.. I'm not looking to own high numbers of memorials, my intentions as a contributor are.. first.. to help document the cemeteries.. and secondly.. to help family members find their ancestors more easily.. So even if you don't necessarily fit the Find A Grave 'guidelines' for requesting a transfer, don't let that deter you from asking.. My feelings are that if you've taken the time to contact me with a correction or addition to a memorial, then you qualify...

I also want to give special mention to my Find A Grave friend, Kris Daugherty/OSU1988. Kris has been a tremendous help to me by providing me with cemetery records for Williams County. These records have enabled me to add my photos to memorials with confidence. As many of you know, sometimes we encounter stones that have been so worn down by time and weather that they are unreadable. Her records allow me the ability to cross check the photos with placement of the graves and to identify those unreadable stones. THANK YOU KRIS!!!

Also, I came across this poem on another contributor's profile and it perfectly conveys my thoughts and feelings as I walk the cemeteries.. so with his permission I've borrowed it from his page and here it is..

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

RE: Deidamia Hanks
Hi Sandy, In response to your message. I don't see that I have a memorial for Deidamia Hanks, unless you've spelled it wrong. And I don't know anything about the Walkers. Sorry.

RE: Hardie Memorial Photos
Genealogy is like gold hunting, there's nothing more exciting than finding a nugget of information. I'm just happy I could help in some small way.
Take care, Mary

RE: Melina Benton
Sorry i couldn't help you...here is the message i got from the cemetery >>> I doubled checked our records.
I am sorry to report that I do not have dates for Melinda Benton.
A “J. B. Benton” purchased the family plot prior to 1867.

RE: Hardie Memorial Photos
Hi Sandie,

No problem, I have retracted my edit and added the pictures to Robert Jr.

I understand completely what is happening and am more than happy to accommodate. The same pictures are on all 3 Hardies and no edits are logged in from me.

Anything else I can do to help do not hesitate in asking.

RE: Hardie Memorial Photos
Hi Sandi,

I noticed the mistake immediately and I put in a name change request with Find A Grave to change Sr to Jr. It should be changed soon.
I had no death date for Robert Sr so I didn't attach a photo for him.
Do you know if the 1980 date is Sr's death date?
