Bio and Links
Bio Photo Feel free to use any of my grave marker photos any way that you want to, as few (if any) of them have any artistic value which would be covered by the intent of the Copyright clause in the Constitution.

If I created a site, and you want to make any change to the site, feel free to ask. If I created a memorial for a living person, I will be glad to remove it if requested. I like to make natural pictures with the shadows and background telling a story, and letting the hillside elevation show in the view, not blocking out everything except a very tight square around the face of the gravestone. Best advise I can give rookies doing findagrave work--before you volunteer to do a photo, check and see if the requester just created the memorial then immediately requested a photo. Often folks are just guessing and if the cemetery is showing photos for most memorials, you will likely waste your time looking. I try to accommodate reasonable requests. I am just a contributor here, a volunteer. Please notify me of any mistakes you find. I would like to make corrections if brought to my attention. I will gladly add missing family links or bio if you notify me. If you don't want to add family links and etc. then please offer (on your profile) to transfer the sites to someone who will! (One guy with a million memorials in his fiefdom, just says I will not do any transfers, that is what virtual cemeteries are for. He should follow the Findagrave rule. Which is, quoted from Findagrave: If the memorial in question is a direct relative (within four generations-siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents) to you, and the original submitter is not family, then your wishes supersede theirs under our "Family First" policy. If they refuse to transfer your relative to you, contact the administration and we will work on it for you.) I will be more than happy to transfer your family members to you--please respectfully maintain the sites once you get them. Why are some contributors allowed to have zero contact information?!? If you are requesting photos, you should be required to have contact info in case more information is needed or the cemetery is trying to contact relatives of the deceased. Members with no contact info are like a rock for a gravestone. How useful would Find a Grave be if it were just a lot of pictures of rocks? And if you manage memorials with no picture and wrong/missing names, no links, and incorrect dates, don't expect me to add a picture and wait for you to correct the mess you have created. I am here to follow the rules, and please let me know if I am missing any details in the rules so I can improve my find a grave performance! I am not perfect but I do work towards it! You help me do a better job here, and I promise not to create another one of those virtual cemeteries of imaginary friends! Thanks for dropping in!

* Behold and see as you pass by
* As you are now, so once was I;
* As I am now, so you will beó
* Prepare for death and follow me.
* To follow you I'm not content
* Until I see which way you went.

Much appreciated! Thanks!

Many Thanks
Mr. Herndon, I just wanted to drop a line and let you know how much I appreciate the work you have done. Your photographs of my family graves have helped solve the mystery of Louisa Webster, which I have worked on for 20 years - as time permitted.

Forever in your debt, Louisa Webster Carter's gg granddaughter.

[LE Carter @ New Elam Christian Church. Norman Webster is her brother.]

Holt Family Cemetery
Thanks for the info on the Holt Family cemetery. My family (mother and aunt) have been wondering about its location for years. They were there years ago but a lot has changed and they could not find it. I plan to visit soon. It is the place of my great grandfather's grave (Henry Jack Holt) and others. My grandfather is Henry Jasper Holt, who is not listed with his siblings under Henry Jack's children. Thanks again, for your work. God bless you.

New Elam Cemetery
It appears Ollie Holt was buried the same day his body was recovered from a drowning. Maybe it slipped through the cracks because it's emergency nature. I deleted his wife as you have already photographed her memorial as Martha Ann Seagroves. Thanks for all you do !!
