Bio and Links
I have been doing research for over thirty years and enjoy learning new things about various branches of our family.

The memorials I add or manage are either ancestors, close family members or people I have known most of my life in one way or another. I add as much information as possible to each memorial so it will be here for future generations.

Recently I have been adding memorials for people buried in older cemeteries & have seemed to be forgotten. I have also added memorials from old death certificates and then I go to Ancestry to locate as much for the memorial as possible. Without adding some family members or a little history for them it's very hard to tell if you have found the right person.

I do take photos of headstones when I visit the cemeteries and add them to the memorials. You are welcome to use my photos, as long as they are for your own records & not sold for profit. Whenever they are used on the public websites like please post source as to who took them, whether it be me or someone else.

If you have corrections or request transfers please use the edit button on the memorial page which is located above the photo. Then choose the suggest a correction/or addition hyperlink. I always try to do corrections as soon as possible.

I am happy to transfer memorials that follow the direct line rules as stated in the Findagrave Contributor tools, that is father, grandfather, great-grandfather & so on. I do for the most part transfer other memorials to cousins unless they are close members of my family or a close friend.

PLEASE! If you have information you want added to a memorial go to the edit button and send it to me, I'll by happy to add it and give you credit for the addition.

I would appreciate additions to be done to the actual memorial rather than you adding it by the virtual flowers. Those are to be used as a gift for the deceased. Again, YOU will get credit for any additions. I like to keep the memorials as neat as possible. Thank you!

PLEASE DON'T PUT YOU FULL TREE TO THE FLOWER MEMORIALS! If you would like to tell other family members just say they're an ancestor and you would like to meet other family members to exchange information. Thank you!

Rose family in Morgan County

I have some photo requests in for a few memorials that you are managing, both in Ritter Cemetery in Morgan County, Tennessee:

Lindsay Austin Rose (#133160605)
Sarah Ada Ritter Rose (#133160548)

I was just told by another user that they both are unmarked graves. Would you mind making a note on their memorials please?

This is my husband's line. I would really appreciate it.

Thanks very much,
Amy Nugent

My apology BJ. No disrespect to you at all. It is out of frustration with myself that I didn't wait. I am mentally ill and physically unfit to do this any more. I have put off doing my Fry's. I have searched off and on for years with Daniel and Trifilet.
I have e-mailed back and forth with my cousin and have
additions, deletions or corrections. After the Fry's, I am ready to be done. I know how much I appreciate the work you and the other volunteers have done and I hope what I do will help someone in the future. Thank you so much.
Again, my apology. Diane #48631527

I'm impressed with the way you separate info on your memorials. (They look a lot like mine) Makes it easier to read. I wish everyone took more time on them.

I don't know about this family. My eye was caught by this marker and where in sat in a forgotten, neglected, and lonely old cemetery. Can uou offer the source of your information on this memorial for my comfort in editing, when I am clueless to any details on this family? Thank you for any added help and your interest in this marker.
