Bio and Links
Bio Photo I encountered the website quite by accident while researching family members. Immediately I recognized the value of this resource for future generations.

I have been reluctant to readily discard family histories encompassed in the vast collection of funeral programs acquired through years. Find A Grave affords a perfect opportunity to share the valuable information contained in these documents.

My goal is to share accurate data as recorded in these documents or from my personal knowledge in hope that it will be helpful to others.

Current geneaological focus is on descendants of (1) Antrum Lesesne (Nero Lesesne, Derry Lesesne/ Lesane, Abram Plowden, Effie/Affie Plowden, Titus Abraham) and (2) Luke & Sarah Davis of South Carollina (Sumter and Clarendon counties).

Hi. I believe you posted the picture and info for my great great grandfather and was wondering if you had anymore information? I believe Susan Green was his wife. I hope I'm right this is so exciting! Just working on my family tree.

RE: Find A Grave Correction: Lillie Brown
Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly! Just hang tight on any changes until I get positive documentation as I'm just not sure. I'll send changes via the edit tab when I'm more confident and talk more with family.

Thanks again,

Hi Mary,
Of all the contributors on findagrave, you have one friend, "Remember Me", who also happens to be a dear friend of mine. He's tough, but he's good and I continue to learn from him.
Best to you,
ps. just spoke with him about an hour ago, you know he lost his wife, Lynn 3 weeks ago?

RE: photo glitch today
Thank you Mary. It had to do with the hijack that occured last week. It has been quite a mess for them to clean up. I don't think they are done yet!

photo glitch today
Greetings Mary,

There was quite a Find A Grave website glitch this am.
I was working on Memorial# 93726388, Lucy A. Burbank Randall and her family. On this particular memorial one of your photos was added to this memorial (along with one other photo from a different member) I was hoping that you could remove it.
It was quite the glitch! Lucy's daughter ended up with info and photos from someone in Finland!
All three memorials I was working on at that time are messed up.

Thank you for your help.

Hi, I requested some edits for memorials in Fort Jackson National Cemetery and wanted to provide source information. The Department of Veterans Affairs has a website that gives the birth date, death date and plot number for each burial in National cemeteries.

Thanks for your contributions to Find A Grave!
