Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a man who loves history and in my time have seen some very old tombstones in my travels and when researching my family history. There have been some interesting finds in my time. I am a writer and poet and I plan on designing my own monument to leave my mark upon the world when I die. I have found many old markers in Texas and Iowa in the northern part of the state and Minnesota. Having an interest in the funeral industry I am always researching cemeteries. It was because of my Grandpa that I have such a love for history. Recently while visiting a cemtery in Falls County, TX I discovered about twenty tombstones that were inscribed in German. This was the first time I have ever seen any markers written in another language. As far as the future, who knows where my travels may take me. God is my guide and it certianly will be an adventure! Every one has a right to be remembered. I am a voice for those who do not have anyone to do this for them. I do not only my family and friends but I often walk local cemeteries and add information online to aid researchers in their family history research. If I have made a mistake or if you have something for me to add please get in touch with me and I will take the appropriate action. I am willing to do photo lookups in Lubbock as well as other places. Contact me if I can help. However do bear in mind that I am unable to drive but will do my best to assist in any way possible.

***** I really hate to do this, but from now on, I WILL NOT do any transfers or updates that come to me on the message board. I've had too many requests that have errors in them and this just slows everything down. Please, please please use the EDIT tabs on the memorials. This is what it was designed and set up for so please use it. Also, it has gotten to the point that I will no longer respond to transfer requests or up-date requests that are sent to me here on the Message Board or by e-mail. I will only make changes that come to me via EDIT/SUGGEST A CORRECTION. Thanks.****

Many thanks for the words of encouragement and support about my contributions on the site. It has been a godsend for me in doing my genealogy and it is my hope that my work will do for others what others work has done for me.

Hi Shawn, I see you have claimed nine out of about 18 of the requests pending in this cemetery. I was about to request a photo and saw so many were still unclaimed. Are you taking a trip to that cemetery soon? Wondering if it's worth requesting another with so many unclaimed from December. Thank you for all you do for F.a.G.

My belated thanks to you for taking the time to photograph and upload the photo of the double marker for my distant cousin, Martha (Thompson) Robertson and her husband John. You have rendered an important service indeed!

Thanks so much, Shawn, for taking the photo of Jean's marker! I realized after looking at the photo that I had the sisters dates mixed up, and have now corrected it! Thanks for all you do for this site! Carol

I posted transfer request for Freeman Roosevelt Curtis on 7/18/14 and have not had any reply. I am working with his daughters to get additionl information entered on Find A Grave page and will really appreciate your honoring my request. The Curtis family and my family have been very close friends,
long before Freeman and my father, Jim Clark ever married and have been good friends since.

I'll appreciate your transferring.
