Bio and Links
Bio Photo Four years ago when I discovered Find a Grave I found this website to be invaluable in my family research. I then began photographing graves of my relatives. Now I photograph graves of people that I don't know hoping that I can help someone else find their relatives. I love to visit old cemeteries. Each weekend I try to visit three or four cemeteries.

I know that I manage a large number of memorials but I am not "in it for the numbers."
I don't have time to research every person that I enter. I hope that the memorials are a starting point for someone researching their family.

I transfer memorials that are not related to me. Please follow the guidelines and state your relationship.

Please use the edit tab for requests. This does prevent accidents.

Also, when requesting transfers or information remember to ask nicely. Questioning someone's faith is no way to get help.

Advice for new members: Don't let negative comments discourage you. I received and still receive them but when you receive and email from someone who has found a relative with your help it is all worthwhile.

My families are Pillow, Jordan, Yates, Cash, Campbell and Mays.

Feel free to use my pictures. That's why I post them here.

New on Find A Grave
I found out what the new box on the message feature of the edit tab is. It is a security feature Find a Grave had to add keep hackers out. Marsha

Floral Hills Cemetery
I noticed you have posted a few pictures for Floral Hills. I was wondering if you could post the photo for George P Hundley for his wife Rosa as well. Her memorial is linked to him. She died a few years ago but her death date has not been added to the headstone.
Thanks for your help. I appreciate it. I created Rosa's memorial and transferred it to someone.

I do not see the ability to add bio(obituary)
information using the "edit" function you asked me to use. Therefore I sent my request for you via your gmail address.

Thank you.
