Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is something that I enjoy doing and the "Personel Satisfaction Take Home Pay" is fabulous.

People are Petty
That being said, if I have a picture of a headstone that you would like to use for your tree, Please feel free to do so. Unlike smug self righteous individuals who have no idea of the spirit of helping people, I have driven thousands of miles & roamed through secluded burial grounds to help complete strangers find lost love ones. I don't do it for recognition or remuneration.

So if I can help you, I most certainly will. And if you become offended if I post Bio Info or picture (which has happened) Let me know & I will remove it. I'll also transfer memorials if they are not related to me, unlike others on here who say they won't.

My family names of interest are: Burrow, Burough, Pearce, Marler, Barnes, Cantrell, Hubbard, Meade and Boggs,

date on headstone:
Hi, you have an excellent attitude in life, I feel the same way. I want to help not fight or argue. I will gladly help anyone who needs it. Speaking of mistakes, I make a lot of them, and constantly go back and see them later. I have removed most of my family and my husband's also, people got so demanding and mean. It is a shame. Thanks for being so kind and for fixing that little mistake.

your message:
I love your message, more need to be like you. I have had people be so mean, and then I would do anything to help someone to find who they are looking for. I am a genealogist but also use this a lot and don't put much of my stuff on anymore because of what you are talking about, and it has happened to me. Thank you for being so kind and generous and loving, the world is a better place because of YOU. xx

is the headstone or the birth in print on the page wrong, one says Apr. to Aug and the headstone says passed the same day, Aug to Aug. Just wondered if you realized this. I was just putting some new information in about her grandma, noticed this. Sue Mikutis Taylor.

RE: Whitaker Cemetery
I am not sure what you mean about linking them together. I only found the website accidentally this week and only became a contributor to put my mom in the system because Brian Caudill had her buried in Seco, not Tazewell. I am not familiar with the advanced capabilities of the site. In communicating with Brian I found that he was in the area and photographed the cemetery and made memorials for them. He isn't related and hasn't lived in the area. I really liked what you had included about my family members in Whitaker/ Seco Cemetery especially Odell Cantrell. I sure hope you can put them back!

Thank you
Thank you for all the hours you have put into documenting the Cantrell genealogy. I am the granddaughter of Atchie. Something to note that I never realized before my uncle, Kenny Cantrell, passed is that the birthdate on my grandfather's headstone is incorrect. I don't know why we never had it corrected. It should be Jan. 14. I suppose it really isn't significant at this point. I just recently saw my family's entries on this website and I am grateful for your work.
But thank you again!

Thank you for making the memorial for W. H. Maggard. I have been to the cemetery in Pound, VA and somewhere I have a picture of the monument, but who knows when I would have posted it. I knew his wife and son and his granddaughter is my aunt. His name was William Henry Maggard.

RE: John B. Merritt and Mamie Merritt
Dear Mr. Howard Burough, thank you so very much for transferring Rev. John B. Merritt and Sister Merritt's memorials over to my care. I certainly want to honor both of these blessed individuals by writing their BIOs and managing their memorials on their behalf so that others may know how giving and selfless they have been during their lifetime and how dedicated their lives were in the work of God. May the Lord truly bless you for all your dedicated work as a Find-A-Grave contributor.

RE: Bennie
Is there something else that you need me to do before you will transfer my grandfathers memorial page over to me?
