I love Find-a-Grave. What a great tool for genealogists.
My current project - photographing the cemeteries closest to my part of southeast Georgia. I'm also very slowly gathering obituaries at my local library and posting them. They contain so much information.
I hope my efforts are providing information for people who, like me, don't have physical access to the burial place of their relatives.
If you find I've opened a memorial page in Find-a-Grave for your relative and would like me to transfer management to you - just make your request using the "Edit" tab on the memorial page for the person you wish me to transfer.

Mary Ann Cason 73857902 I would appreciate it if I could use the headstone photo of Mary Ann Cason in my Ancestry Family Tree. If I find additional photos you have taken do you also mind if I use those photos.
Per the War of 1812 pension file for William DeLoach, Keziah states her #1 marriage was to Simeon Sheffield who died in Bulloch County on March 11, 1837; her #2 marriage was to James Hagen, who died in Bulloch County on November 15, 1855. In that file, it does confirm her marriage date to William DeLoach of May 6, 1858.
