Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family history research for over 12 years. Needless to say, it has become a passion. I have visited many county Genealogical Societies in PA, MD, VA and NC and have received a great deal of assistance from the local volunteers. Becoming a volunteer on Find A Grave is a small way for me to repay their kindness. I look forward to taking a lot of pictures!

I will gladly transfer any memorial. I will add or correct information as quickly as possible. Please use the edit tab on the memorial to send any corrections, additional information or to request transfers.

If you can not reach me through FaG please feel free to always use my Juno email.

RE: Morris Sullivan Curtis
Hello Donna, It is nice to meet you. Morris S. Curtis and Maggie Harris Curtis are my great-grand parents. Their daughter Gertrude Curtis is my grandma. I have put flowers on their graves since I was a little girl. I knew Maggie and as a teenager I would read the Bible to her everyday because she lived next door to us with my grandma, Gertie. I only realized these memorials existed a few months ago and I only realize you could add to them a few weeks ago. I am a disabled women who spends most of her time at home in bed reading, watching TV, and using the computer. Morris died long before I was born and all I know about him came from stories from my Dad, Grandma, and other family members. I was a very old girl when I found out Morris was born without being claimed by his father. I was told his father was named Joe but I am not sure. I am trying to find out. But the obstacle is that all his children are dead. It would be nice to find a relative thru these pages. I have tried to but Maggie and Morris down on all their childrens memorials so they will all be linked as their children. Is there any other way to include siblings and children than by using the forms and hoping they get linked? Thanks Jan

Emailing it to you now! And I don't want credit, just reference the newspaper, that's all. I love helping out.
Thanks Donna,
Blessings to you,

RE: Suzanne Bradley
Donna, thanks so much! Yes I intend to pursue this a bit more -- just one of those little puzzles! WHERE did the name Suzanne come from? She seems to have used a different name in each census, yet all other info matches.

RE: Margaret Stephey Green
Hi there Donna,
No, I'm not related. I was entering an obituary from a newspaper and saw "Peg's" obituary there too, so I thought I'd send you the update. Would you like her obituary? Let me know and I can attach it to her memorial or just email it to you.

Remove Memorial Please
You have posted my son's (Joshua Tyler Wyatt) monument photo on the Find a Grave Website. I have had it taken down once before. Just because it is a graveyard doesn't mean everything is publicly acceptable to post without prior consent. I paid for the lot that he is laid to rest in- that makes it mine and not the publics. I would like you to delete this as soon as possible and be more respectful when it comes to sharing private things such as this. I respect that you enjoy what you do but I expect respect for the loss of my son and not posting it on the Internet.

Memorial Transfers
Would appreciate if you could transfer all Craig Memorials in Whaley Family Cemetery, Worcester Co, MD. These are my Dad's family.
Also, noticed you mentioned in the James Russell Craig regarding a marker for Mary Dale but I did not see her listed in the cemetery. Was this an oversite? You do an amazing job and the work of all Findagravers is so much appreciated. THANK YOU.
