Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in genealogy for as long as I can remember. I was blessed to have grown up near my grandmother, who happened to remember a lot of family names and stories. :) I credit my passion (or obsession to some...ha ha) as coming from her. I also happen to have a fondness for old cemeteries.

I have no problem transferring memorials to people who ask. I like to document whole cemeteries, giving me a lot of memorials that I have no relation to. So feel free to ask! :) On a side note, please do not email me asking for detailed info about cemeteries (like who is buried there, etc.). I do not have any specific information on a cemetery, other than what you see on this website. I find some on a map, and some are stumbled upon by just driving down the road.

I also do not mind if someone would like to copy my gravestone pictures for their family trees. It would be nice to receive a credit mention where ever you might post the pictures...but at the same time, it won't hurt my feelings if I don't. The pictures I take are for the "greater good" and I take them, hoping that someone out there will find them...maybe they might even help someone piece together part of their family tree that's been a mystery! :)

My family names: Carlisle, Rosan, Lively, Burton, Mathis, Ussery, Miles, Hicks, Lavender, Gustin, Trill, Offerman, Ritter, Wabbena, Sternberg, Tekstra, Doescher, Atkins/Adkins, Paton/Payton, Robinson, Bonham, Cleavenger, Barnett, Crawford, Fuller, Russell, Halfacre (just to name a few!)

Little Flock
Hi! I went to little flock commentary today to see my great grandmothers resting place. Her name was Susie Goble Bonham. She died shortly after my grandmother and her twin sister was born in 1916. As I was leaving an older man pulled up and told me I needed to get the hell off his land. I tried to explain I was visiting my great grandmothers grave and he threatened to call the police. I would like to know who owns the grave yard and if he had the right to do this. Can you help in this matter. Thanks Valerie Lavender. My geandmother name was Josephine Bonham Willie.

Do you know where this grave was transferred from and re-interred in 1969? Also, are you related to Susan Carlisle? Thank you.

I was looking at the closeup of the tombstone for William Moses Mathis and it looks to me like it is spelled WM. MATHIAS instead of MATHIS?
