Bio and Links
Bio Photo I guess I was about 7 or 8 yrs old when I first remember my dad taking me to cemeteries to trace our roots. Now I am an addict to genealogy and cemetery hunting!!! (I think it is from the Mingo Swamp water!!)
This is a wonderful website it has helped me leaps and bounds in my personal genealogy quest!

I like to transcribe entire cemeteries so loved ones can be found, mine & yours. So most of the memorials I post I am not related to. If you see a relative or someone close to you that I have posted & wish to manage there memorial, please just holler & I can transfer it to you as long as I am not related.

I have posted many photos on this site & anyone may use them for there family tree. If you make a million off one of them, please at least buy me dinner.

If you see a mistake or just have more info just leave me a message or E-Mail me. I will be happy to add the info for any additions or corrections.

A question has been asked several times here lately. "Why do you put 'Bio Info Courtesy of' & link that person to the info?" Well I like to keep track of my sources & who sent me what for whom. Also it gives that person the credit for all the hard work they have done. If you do not want your name attached to a memorial that you have given me info on, please just tell me & I will not attach it.

Please do not get upset if I do not answer your messages & e-mails right away. I get alot of messages & e-mails everyday. I try to answer them all quickly but some take longer than others, but I will get to them!! Currently I am working on messages, requests & transfers from Feb 2013.

Happy Hunting !!

Boyt Family
Brent, The Boyt family are a part of my family tree. You have them buried at Hills Store, Barker Cemetery. There is no cemetery at Hills Store, but there is a Baker Cemetery not far from there. Is it possible you have the cemetery named incorrectly?

Find A Grave Memorial# 29713492
Hi Brent, I requested this about a year ago, but would you please transfer Find A Grave Memorial# 29713492 Emma TUTTLE Carson to me? She was my grandmother. I had already created a memorial when you created yours, then FindAGrave merged the two and left you with management. I would appreciate your promt attention. Thank you, Laurel Dancoe

Ken Buttry
Pleasant Grove Cem -- Bell City
Brent, Do you know who I can contact that would have a list of those interred in Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Bell City. I have some distant relatives that were probably buried there according to their death certificates. The names on the death certificates were "Buttry" but should have been "Buttery" by closer relatives. Their son was buried at Morgan Memorial in Advance as "Buttrey".

I wish I knew who I am!

Memorial # 37166508
Regarding Memorial # 37166508 for Bertie Eva Proffer. I sent a private message requesting that you DELETE it. No answer or action disappoints me. Your memorial with incorrect info was created on 5/16/2009

She has a correct memorial # 27813349 with all correct information that was established on 6/25/2008.

As a contributor, I am convinced that both of us know the simplicity of the requested task. In the private message to you, I offered further information.

Best wishes, Brent. This is important to me and to those who are related.
