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.

Transfer of Joseph Sasnett
Thank you very much for fulfilling my transfer request on Find A Grave. I appreciate your efforts in establishing the memorial originally and also your generosity in sharing memorials you are not particularly interested in. It also inspires me to reciprocate in kind when similar requests are made of me. Thanks again, Joe Sasnett

It took a few minutes but I remember what I wanted to add on the edit (it really would be nice for them to add to the note what the edit was).

If you enlarge the bottom picture, you'll see the nickname on the edge of the border. I meant to take a picture of it, (as I did for Jeff) but somehow I didn't.

Since we're on vacation, it's doubtful I'll be back to do so.

Whitehead, J. C.
You entered Find A Grave Memorial #62511024 for subject individual who is buried at Blackwood Methodist Church Cemetery (Old), Henry County, AL. It shows born 26 Jul 1866 died 17 May 1911. I would like to know the source of this info and perhaps a photo of any tombstone. It is my belief that the year of death is 1921. Can you help? Tom Shepherd

Allie Murdock Reeves (1827-1905) Headstone photo
I've been active in findagrave for going on three years now, and had a photo request in for this 2nd great aunt's headstone for most of the first year. I recently returned to work on my ancestry family tree and decided to look at her memorial again, and there was your recent photo of her stone which included a clearly legible maiden name, which was the confirmation of identity I'd been hoping to see.

Appreciate your work ! I would like to post your photo onto my public tree with attribution to you.

Hello Don
I am sorry to hear of uncle Richards passing. I am Willard's oldest grand daughter, Elizabeth. I just did a random search for great grandma Mary and found this.

I'm pretty sure that his parents are Thomas Atwell & Margaret Forbis, not Richard Atwell & Sarah Jewell. James Andrew (aka Andrew James) Atwell is Richard & Sarah's son also buried at Houk.

Thanks, Vicki Jewell
