Bio and Links
I am retired. I have been doing genealogical research on my family lines for about 20 years. For the past few years I've put my research on the "back burner" but now that I've retired, I'm back into it. I enjoy going through cemeteries and each headstone tells only a very short history of that person's life. I now get to do several of my favorite hobbies, all at the same time, history, genealogy research, photography, walking through cemeteries, and motorcycle riding.
Not all of the headstones I list are family lines. If you find a correction or have additional information, just let me know.
If you have any ATWELL'S and transfer them to me, I'll take good care of them, but I will not transfer any ATWELL'S.
In the future, please use the change buttons that FAG has provided. I do check these to see if they are correct, so if it seems to be in error, I will decline them.
I will not link unknown burials.

Thank you Don for fulfilling my photo request for his tombstone. He is my grandmother's brother so it is great to be able to see his tombstone.

RE: Transfers
We found the first one at Pinckard Vault & Marble in Troy (see memorial 130424133). It was an old unused monument that he got when he bought the inventory of another company. We liked it so well that we had him make two more just like it. Then we just went ahead and had the other two inscribed and installed also.

Thank you for the very nice pictures you took of their graves. I have forwarded them onto the family. I am sure that they will be very grateful. I appreciate your time and efforts to make Find A Grave such a great web site. Thanks again!

Dr. James Edgar Foy V Grave
I recently came across a picture of Dr. Foy when the Auburn 1954 yearbook was dedicated to him. I wanted to add it to the site for him that you created but there are already 5 photos. At least two are duplicates.
Would you consider removing the duplicates so that I can add this photo of him to his site? Thanks so much!

Hello Don I had a question and a favor to ask you but then I read your Bio, the question was I was curious if there is any way at all that you can make an exception for me and transfer a few Atwell's over to me that's buried in Houk Cemetery in Metcalfe County Ky. I am kin and related to the Atwell's as well, My grand mother was Catherine Alice Atwell Hester my moms mother, and I would really like to be able to manage her Find A Grave memorial and a few more that's also there, I also have a lot of info pics and other things that I would like to add to a few of the memorials once they are transferred to me. I hope that you can and will consider and spare a few for me and transfer to me, I look forward to your response. Joey Bennett
