Bio and Links
Bio Photo Happily unattached, traveling nurse anesthetist with a passion for genealogy, outdoors, and photography. I enjoy recording and sharing cemeteries I find in my travels with people on FAG. I am not related to most of my memorials; please let me know if I can transfer a relative of yours to you. I enjoy doing photo requests and try to take a few extra pictures while I am there. I try to prepare the stone for a nice picture but don't always have my tools with me (the airlines frown on gardening tools in luggage!) to trim grass, wash bird droppings, etc. Please let me know if I've made some typos and I will correct ASAP. Also, please let me know if you get a better photo and I will delete mine. I'll be always grateful to one of my high school English teachers, Marjory Sharp, Find A Grave Memorial# 117584719, for assigning a four generation pedigree chart and to my great grandmother, Eva Alta Jackson Yeokum, Find A Grave Memorial #20165966, who lived next door and helped me fill it out the night before it was due!

January 2012 - I am working to "link" my memorials. Links weren't around when I started here, so I'm having to do some serious backtracking! Thanks to everyone that sends additional information for the memorials--I get 10-20 emails a week--please be patient as I work on getting all this added, too.

Hello Kathy,
I was thrilled to find your photos of this cemetery! I wondered if you had also created a spreadsheet? I am the newly elected Secretary of the Association that manages the Cemetery. Don't want to duplicate your work. Thanks! Jo Turner

Warren Keith McCollum
Hello Kathy. This is in regards to your memorial for Warren Keith McCollum # 82118712. In 2006, my now deceased sister, Linda, had created a memorial, #1545811. It's been brought to my attention (I now manage Linda's memorials), that Mr. McCollum was not buried in Columbia, as was stated in the newspaper article. What I would like to do, is copy a more complete obituary from Linda's memorial to yours and delete hers. However I'm going to try to make contact with Marilyn Flach, who posted a photograph of him to Linda's memorial and have her add it to yours before I delete my sister's. Just thought I would give you a heads up on my plans. Great job on all of your contributions. Such a gift from you to others who are in search of their families. "Each Day Counts", Loretta
