Bio and Links
I've always been fascinated with grave sites, visited cemeteries, made rubbings, took photos, etc. and must say that find-a-grave is an ideal site.

I've worked on family history projects for over 35 years and will for as long as I can. I'm more than happy to share family history with anyone interested.

The primary names I research are STROOPE, KEA, Pitts, Howton, Trammel, Hopper, Hale, Thetford, CARPER, BARTON, Lyon, Phipps, Griffith, Ellison, Shumate and many allied lines.

When I document a grave site, I try to include some information on the parents, siblings, marriage, etc. hoping this will help someone idendify their relative. In some cases, when recording my line, or lines, I've created memorials for as much of the cemetery as I've had access to.

I'll be glad to transfer your family member to you. Always remember the FAG # for the memorial page and, of course, your FAG #. PLEASE do not send me a big list of names with no numbers included... thanks

If I have grave site information in error, please contact me so that corrections can be made.

Recent projects include:

--Gig Harbor and Haven of Rest Cemeteries, Gig Harbor, Pierce County, Washington

--JCC Smith Cemetery in Texas

--Knight of Pythias and Sunset Lane Memorial Park, Port Orchard, Kitsap County, Washington

--Lovington and Resthaven Cemeteries, Lovington, Lea County, New Mexico

--Mountain View Memorial Park, Lakewood, Pierce County, Washington

--Mount Calvary Cemetery (Santa Barbara Cemetery) , Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico

--Calvary, Old Pioneer and Tacoma Cemeteries, Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington

--Riverside Cemetery in Vassar, Tuscola County, Michigan

Riverside transfers

Ok...will take some/all/whatever you feel you need to unload. I am near the cemetery so it will be no problems to check on. The Vassar library has quite a bit of info also. Just not sure when I will get to them.

Sorry to hear that JoAnn has some health issues. Wish her the very best and will keep her in my prayers.

Riverside memorials
I see that Sandy suggested that you transfer some Riverside memorials to me. I still have some of yours that I haven't yet researched, but I will get to them in time. If you wish, you can send along about another 100, but I really can't handle more than that right now. Thanks for thinking of me. You can always ask me again within a few months.
I had a major issue with my computer and now that I have a new one, have to clean off thousands of files and e-mails that got duplicated during the transfer of backup files to the new computer. I have been working on this for several weeks now, and the end isn't even in sight!
Hope all is well with you.

Ok will not delete mine.

My plate is pretty full. I am still doing some cemetery walking but mostly I have been busy researching people and connecting them. This is a slow long process so if I took on your Riversides it would really be a long time before I could get to them.

It would be a privelige for me to handle your memorials though because I know they are well researched and thorough. But only if no one else has no desire for them....

Maybe Joann Geybels?

It appears that I have duplicated one of your memorials. Sorry. Would you please consider copying information from mine to yours and then I will delete. Let me know when I can delete. I would appreciate this. God Bless.

Searched cemetery and didn't find George. Some of the headstones were so bad you couldn't even read anything on them.
