Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm an avid genealogist and photo enumerator of cemeteries. I've taken photos of headstones for many years, enumerated several cemeteries and slowly adding them online. My main project here on Find A Grave has been helping photo enumerate our oldest cemetery here in Amarillo for Llano Cemetery under the name 'Walter Dunn'.

I've received much more from Find A Grave than I have given and I am eternally grateful for this.

RE: Joseph C and Tennie Heard
Thank you so much again Ruth! Your offer to assist with other family graves is very kind indeed. I'm not sure if there is any family members there, but will check. (I know one of their daughters and her family lived in the area so it is possible.)
Thanks again!

Tolitha Rodgers/Rogers
Hi Ruth, popeye here, your post for Tolitha Rogers was in good faith, I'm sure, however she is already posted, along with her Spouse Z.T. The confusion lies in the spelling of her last name. Your post is a duplicate of post # 37304585 for Tolitha RODGERS. Please delete yours. Thanx and have a great day,

RE: Joseph C and Tennie Heard
Ruth, thank you so very much for the transfer. That was generous indeed, and very kind of you. And again, thank you so much for creating the memorial. Without your effort, I think I would still be looking for them, and would never have thought to look in New Mexico.
Thanks again,

Joseph C and Tennie Heard
Ruth, thank you so much for setting up such wonderful memorials for my great grandparents, Joseph Cicero Heard and Tennie Heard. That is very kind of you. By any chance are you related?

James Moore
Hi Ruth,made the transfer for James over to you. You had sent me an edit that for place of birth as only Oklahoma.However in his obit,it states he was born in Lindsey,Okla.
When you click on the list of towns,it list the town as Lindsay,instead of Lindsey per the obit; also the county for that town is Garvin.

Hi Ruth ,thank you for the obit,it has been added.
Is he family ? I don't mind transfers. I try to connect family any chance I get,it doesn't mater to me how close or how far apart the link may be.

Lucille Marshall # 82472051
The spouse connection for Lucille Marshall to Albert D. Marshall (1914 - 1975) was made on her memorial. You need to contact RD (#46789230) to make the correction.

Hi, Ruth :) Thank you so much for the information you sent about Isabella Redding. I have added it to her memorial. I see someone has added photos to it also. "Isabella" is on her headstone. Her husband is also buried in this cemetery-I have linked them. Thanks and take care. Kathy

Old Clarkesville Cemetery
I'm sorry that I didn't completely explain. I have never lived in Georgia. When I first joined Find A Grave I searched my MARTIN line back to Habersham County. I located Philip Martin buried at Old Clarkesville Cemetery and decided to research and list those individuals on Find A Grave. Cheryl Williams who lives close to the cemetery and is associated with the Friends Society worked with me to take headstone photos and make corrections. She is also a member of Find A Grave Member 47256955. I think you should contact her about the family information you have there. I know it would be so appreciated. Let me know what I can do if you need any assistance.

Thank you for the photos for these memorials and information has been added. The Old Clarkesville Memorial Cemetery was one of the first projects I submitted to Find A Grave. I researched the burials, and Cheryl Williams did the headstone photos. The Friends of the Old Clarkesville Memorial Cemetery Society uses our Find A Grave memorials. Thank you.
