Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a fairly recent enthusiast of cemetery photography. I suspect becoming a site contributor and photo volunteer was inevitable.

I live in the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee. My involvement in the Society for Creative Anachronism (the "SCA") means that I travel to other states - notably Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

When possible, I now "fit in" cemetery photography sessions while away from home.

Most of the memorials I have made are for people I am not related to. They've come about from picture-taking adventures and subsequently learning that no memorial existed. When appropriate, I add photographs to existing memorials.

A good number of the memorials I manage but did not make are my family. Some were created before I came along and were kindly transferred to me by other contributors who are not related to them. Others originated from the U.S. Veterans Affairs Office and were transferred to me by Find A Grave Administration.

A couple of memorials I now manage are of non-relatives for whom I suggested rather extensive editing based on information I had gathered ... and the non-relative originator chose to transfer management to me.

If you find that one of your relatives has a memorial made by me, I'll be happy to transfer management - WITHIN the 4-generation direct relationship guidelines as given in the Find A Grave FAQ. --->> Please do specify your exact relationship in the SAC! <<---

FAQ #162 states that the 4-generation direct relationships are as follow: "This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."

Kindly DO NOT copy my photographs for use on other websites. Yes, I ***REALLY*** DO mean: DON'T post photographs that I have taken to or to any other site.

Copyright for images posted to Find A Grave remains with the photographer, who in this case reserves the right to not permit further sharing on the Internet.

Your photo request
You posted a photo request for a William (Surname not supplied) on Jan 5, 2015. I would be happy to try to fulfill your request if you can provide additional information. I have many relatives in this cemetery.

Thanks so very much for your message!

It is too bad the searches don't work so well. I searched high and low, and for the information three times and there was NO memorial...

I appreciate you bringing this to my attention - deleted mem.

I came across Will Cothron's death record. It indicates he is the s/o Will Cothron and Lou Robinson.

His marker lists his last name Cothran (with an 'a') but his death record, and his Wife # 10708788 and Son # 10708780 spell it Cothron (with an 'o').

I've linked him to his Wife and Son.

Thank you!

Please look at the Seals edits you sent me. The info does not seem to be different than what is existing. Thanks for your help. gail
