Bio and Links
Bio Photo NOTE: As of April 2016, I've made it through surgery and chemotherapy, and have been cancer-free since August 2014. I'm very hopeful, and very appreciative of all the words of kindness and encouragement.

As of August 2014, I'm dealing with my mother's recent death and my own recent cancer diagnosis. Please be patient with any suggestions / edits you send. Thanks in advance!

[PLEASE read (starting with para. 2) before contacting me about a memorial; it will save us both time and trouble. Thanks!]

I'm a history major and a lawyer (University of Virginia, Emory University;) a fanatic about live music (Todd Rundgren, Gene Owens, the blues;) and a photographer. I'm a wife and a mother (a son who recently graduated from law school at the University of Georgia and a daughter who recently graduated from Tulane.) I have a house full of rescued dogs and cats.

If I'm the caretaker of a memorial for someone who was closer to you than to me, I'll consider transferring that memorial to you; feel free to ask, but please include DETAILS as to your relationship to the deceased.

If you have additional information or links that you want added to a memorial, please send details and DO include links to your SOURCES: I'm unlikely to make additions/links if I can't verify their accuracy

All requests for transfers, all suggestions, and all corrections MUST be sent via the edit tab on the memorial in question. If you use the "Other" option you'll be able to send an explanation of, and links to, your sources for suggested changes to a memorial.

If you need to write me at my email address about something else (e.g., a suggestion or correction I've sent you,) PLEASE include a copy of any relevant correspondence and a link to the memorial(s) in question.

If I've posted a cemetery photograph that you want to use on Ancestry, please feel free to do so IF and ONLY IF you include the entire caption as the photograph description. You MUST get my express permission to use any of my photographs OTHER than those taken in cemeteries.

Findagrave reminder
When adding memorials for infants please do not include the parents names in the name fields. Please add parents name to the biography or the transcription field if the names are on the stone. Please also do not include outside links on memorial pages. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Thank-you for researching and editing my uncle's grave. Now I have additional information which will allow me to research further.

Norman Clark Finch
Hi Ellen,

I was doing research on Norman's father, Alvin Finch of Rensselaer Co., NY, and have confirmed that this is his son, Norman Clark Finch.

Alvin was infamous, if not famous, and if you accept the changes I sent you it will link to a dramatic bio for Norman's father.

RE: Wrong Photograph
Oh my, sorry about that! Thank you for beinging that to my attention. I have deleted it. Will try to see if I still have the photo of the correct one to post.

Changes to Ada Scott Clark etc
Dear Ellen,

Thanks for making adjustments to move certain Clark pages over to (or merge) the correct cemetery. There is still somebody named Tera Lewis who has these redundant people listed incorrectly at Fairmount Cemetery, so the job isn't done, but I appreciate the help you have given, regardless.

Best Wishes.

Improvements to your health
Ellen, It's been some time. I'm just checking in with FAGrave friends now. I'm very happy to read that you've been free of the cancer since 2014. May your life continue in good health and happiness.
