Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you to all the researchers who have told me that my work has helped them in some way. That is very important to me. I hope others who are able to take pictures and/or catalog cemeteries in the area where they live will do it. This is what this site is all about. Sharing with others who can't travel all over the country getting their family information.
I love getting corrections, transfers, and link requests, but PLEASE DO IT FROM THE MEMORIAL PAGE as it is so much easier. It gives me all the info I need.....along with your request, of course! I will not do requests from the public message page. I am much too busy to look up the memorial to make the changes for you. DO ALL REQUESTS FROM THE 'EDIT' LINK ON THE INDIVIDUAL MEMORIAL PAGE!
Also, I've had quite a number of requests from people who think I also do free research. No, I don't. I take headstone photos and try to make sure cemeteries are complete and online. I have other hobbies. I don't do paid research either.
Thank you.
Happy Hunting, Kathy

Save Head Stone
The grave of Julia Tew's mother, Mary Lona Preston, is in Eatonton, GA where I live. A tree has grown up next to the grave and will soon destroy the lovely marker if it is allowed to grown. I would love to save the marker but I must have permission from someone in the family for me to do any kind of work on this private grave. I noticed that Latitia Tew Leishman submitted info on Julia Tew and would like to talk to her as she is probably the next of kin. If you could help me locate Latitia Tew Leishman, it would save her great grandmother's marker. I can be reached at or 706/485-6767. Your help is most important, thanks!

Mary E Small, Aitkin, Minnesota
Thank you for the photo of Mary E. Small (herald) and William Small. They were originally from Oconto, Wisconsin. She was the daughter of Hugh and Nora Herald. The genealogy is posted online at! She did visit home on occasion, they called her Nellie. My mother remembered stories about her even though she never met her.

Benjamin Farabee
I'm looking for information on my Godwin family. Do you know if Benjamin Farabee might have had a daughter who married a William M. Godwin in North Carolina?

Columbus Cemetery Columbus IL
Love this site, it is so helpful. And thank you for all your volunteer work taking all the pictures that you do. You took pictures of the Columbus Cemetery in Columbus IL. I have spent several days searching for a ancestor buried there and finally found it today!! But the cemetery itself is horrible disrepair. Broken stones, missing stones, and the outer edges of the property are now engulfing many of the markers around the edges burying them in weeds, timber shoot trees, and so forth. So sad! It is one of the oldest cemeteries in Adams Co, IL and sadly falling apart, and efforts to turn it around seem to be hitting brick walls. Thank you for your efforts to aid in preserving these places of honor.

Barnes Family Cemetery
Considering the number of photos you've posted you may not remember the answer but I figure it doesn't hurt to ask. You posted a number of photos from Barnes Family Cemetery in Davidson County NC. I will be in NC in January to visit the grave of Junie Barnes (you posted a photo of his grave) but I can't find anything that tells where that cemetery is. Can you help?

Dillon Haworth
Hi Kathy -

Dillon Haworth (1800-1882) was my 4th great grandfather and I noticed the following on his page: "Inscription:
h/o 1)Mary Martha Wright, 2) Mary L. Myers, s/o Geo. H.& Susannah Dillon Haworth, ae 81y 7m 19d". Is the genealogical information on his actual tombstone or was this information derived from an alternate source? If so, I would very much like to get a copy if possible.

Thank You

RE: Barbara Boon
Thank you for your quick responses! I was hoping you could help verify her name. I have seen her name as "Bohn" on ancestor websites, but no one has records.:( Either way it looks like your son and I share a great great grandmother and grandfather:) Also..on Memorial# 49665430 you posted a story by John J Schneider(M/TAnna Reiner) about homesteading in North Dakota... he was my great grandfather! I understand it was a while ago, but if you happen to remember, I am very interested! Thank you again!
